Welcome to CHEAP, our brand-new series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!
If there’s one thing I love, it’s portable Bluetooth speakers. So, when I found out that the Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 is selling for its lowest ever price ($119.99 to be exact), I knew one thing: I had to tell you.
I’m not entirely sure when my love affair with portable sound began – quite possibly with the X-mini. But these days, the technology has advanced incredibly. And my favorite of this new wave? The BOOM 3. Hell, I even wrote a love letter to the damn thing. It’s really that good.
Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed we covered a great deal (which is still running btw) on the Bose Soundlink Revolve earlier on in the week. In that piece, I said that there’s such quality in the top-end of mid-range speaker market, that finding the right device is all about what you want.
While the Bose Soundlink Revolve is a wonderful speaker, it’s mainly designed for the home. The Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 on the other hand, is designed to be used everywhere. It delivers a powerful, robust, and exciting sound – with enough volume and quality to easily cover a gathering.
Plus, it’s hardy, waterproof, and it floats. I literally shower with the UE BOOM 3. Every. Single. Day. It’s the ideal multi-purpose speaker. Put it this way: whenever I leave the house, I have the thing in my bag.
Yes, if you’re looking for something to use around the house that has a more subtle sound, go for the Soundlink Revolve. But if you’re on the hunt for a powerful, portable Bluetooth speaker that you can take everywhere, there’s nothing better out there than the BOOM 3.
And that’s just at the normal cost.
When it currently has a full $30 (or 20 percent if you’re into that) off its list price, it makes the Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 a bargain. A beautiful, beautiful bargain. Get it before it’s too late.
