It’s an older speaker, but it’s still a solid investment

The UE Boom 2 is no stranger to discounts. We’ve seen it go as low as $59.99, though today’s deal at Amazon is nearly as good for a Bluetooth speaker that’s still easy to recommend, despite that it’s an older model. Normally $199 (though these speakers are rarely listed at full cost) the limited edition color scheme that mixes black and charcoal tones is $63.99, and if you purchase it today, Amazon says that it will arrive before Christmas.

If you’re chasing after a good Bluetooth speaker recommendation, UE is likely to pop up in conversation. If you already own a UE Boom 2, these also make excellent gifts for those who want to liven up a party with great sound. The speakers are water resistant with a good battery life, too, making it great for the outdoors. If you’re buying an extra one for yourself, UE’s app lets you link up with the one that’s already in your home.

Usually, it’s the more common, yet sort of garish red-and-blue model that’s discounted, so if you prefer a more muted palette to go with all your other gadgets, this is a nice deal.
