The small waterproof UE Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker is cheaper than usual for readers of The Verge. Daily Steals has the speaker available in new condition and in several colors to choose from for $44.99 for a limited time. The offer code should automatically apply itself, but in case it doesn’t, type in VERGEBOOM at checkout.
This speaker boasts 360-degree sound, and UE claims that it can last up to 10 hours per charge. Despite its smaller size, my colleague Chaim Gartenberg was impressed with its sound, saying it offers “strong, clear sound in my time with it, even at lower ranges (something that smaller speakers traditionally struggle with). And while it might not be quite as loud as its larger counterparts, it still offers more than enough power to fill a decent-sized room.”
The current price at other retailers ranges from $70 to $100, and anything other than the most basic color options is usually more expensive. Each speaker is new, includes the original charging cable, and comes with a one-year warranty (manufacturer defects will be routed through Daily Steals for the duration of the warranty), though your purchase will arrive in a brown box.
