Save 22%: The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 is on sale for $77.99, down from its $99 MSRP, at Amazon as of May 16. This $22 markdown is especially great, considering you can take this speaker just about anywhere.
Whether you’re taking it along to the beach, camping trips, or backyard barbecues this summer, a portable speaker that sounds nice is pretty essential. But maybe just as essential, but slightly overlooked, is a Bluetooth’s speaker ability to handle the elements.
In other words, if you want a speaker that works great poolside, that you don’t spend every second abjectly terrified that it’ll fall into said pool, and that doesn’t break the bank, we’ve got you covered. As of May 16, the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 is on sale for $77.99 at Amazon.
The UE Wonderboom 2 earned spots on our best waterproof and best Bluetooth speakers thanks to its IP67 rating, which is basically a fancy way of saying its waterproof, dustproof, dirtproof, and can handle most adventures you throw at it. And by waterproof we mean waterproof — it can float alongside you in the pool without a problem (and can withstand submersion under about three feet of water for up to 30 minutes).
As for its sound, it comes with an outdoor boost button to amplify things in wide open spaces. Or, if there are two Wonderbooms on the premises, you can pair them up to make sure no one misses a second of your carefully curated playlist. It’ll stay connected to your Bluetooth device for up to 100ft and stays on for up to 13 hours. When it is time to charge up, you’ll need a micro USB, but considering this speaker’s size makes it ultra-portable, carrying around a cable just in case isn’t too much of a hassle.
It comes in four different colors, but you’ll score the greatest savings on the red model. Still, the highest-priced of the colors is only a few bucks more, and still a pretty good deal. Check out your favorite at Amazon and snag it before your Memorial Day celebrations this year.
