The best Bluetooth smart speaker money can buy

from Expert Reviews

At £109, the UE Blast is the cheapest, most versatile smart speaker on the market. No other speaker is this rugged and waterproof, has Bluetooth and Alexa compatibility. It’s compact, too, and although it doesn’t sound as good as its bigger sibling, the UE Megablast, sound quality isn’t bad at all.

The best balance with power and sharpness

from Android Guys

Not saying it’s not an excellent wireless speaker – most of my expression for it has been positive. It’s just that it doesn’t bring a lot to table from the Boom 2. The design is the same, for all intents and purposes. While the sound is noticeably refined, it’s not a big change – certainly not worth the upgrade if that’s the main reason.

Portable Bluetooth speaker first, smart speaker second

from TechRadar

The inclusion of Alexa makes the Blast useful in the home when paired with the optional Power Up dock - but, even when you're away from Wi-Fi, the Blast is still an excellent-sounding Bluetooth speaker.

More of the same, just with Alexa

If you want a rugged, portable speaker, you’ll probably be best off buying a marked down Boom 2 or another comparable option. If you want a speaker that has Alexa functionality, Amazon has you covered with the Echo or any other of the myriad of Alexa-powered options it offers. The odd man out here is the Blast. And that’s such a shame, because it is a good speaker, it’s just not worth the price and compromises.

Top-of-the-line Bluetooth speakers

from Gear Patrol

For the average camper and backyard barbecuer, they’re as waterproof and drop-proof as you’d want. Most importantly, the two speakers sound terrific.

Better, portable Alexa speakers

from Android Headlines

The BLAST is a great speaker to grab, and based on price alone, it’ll likely be the big seller.

An Alexa-powered speaker made by angels from heaven

from Gizmodo

The new speaker is a slightly re-designed UE Boom with two new features: Alexa voice commands and the Power Up charging dock. Together, these two things basically turn the Blast into a portable, durable Echo with excellent sound quality. Despite my earlier exuberance, however, the device is not perfect.
