Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are in full swing, and there are great deals to be had across all kinds of audio tech, and this great Bluetooth speaker option in Amazon's Black Friday deals and best Cyber Monday deals caught my eye.

Right now the Ultimate Ears Boom 3 portable Bluetooth speaker is on sale for just $99 on Amazon, which is an incredible $50 off. This is the lowest price we've seen for this model yet, but only extends to lagoon blue and midnight black color options. Sunset red and ultraviolet purple color choices remain priced at $149 and $148, respectively.

Update: As of November 26 this deal is still current.

This super portable Bluetooth speaker has all the right elements for great sound anywhere, and promises 360-degree sound and up to 15 hours playback on a single charge. It's waterproof to IP67, which means you can take it into the bathroom or have it hangout by the pool, and can be paired with other UE Boom and/or Megaboom speakers for the ultimate party sound.

Like its more expensive sibling, the portable Boom 3 speaker has a similar travel-ready ruggedness, but is smaller in size and weighs around a third less. Despite the more practical dimensions, it offers a similar feature set and pumps out 360-degree sound via two 2-inch full range drivers and two 2 x 4-inch passive bass radiators. There are four tailored-made sound presets or you can customize the EQ to your own preferences.

The IP67-rated design means it can survive drops, shower splashes, and can even be submerged in water for short periods without skipping a beat.

Unlike many of its competitors, Ultimate Ears' speakers don't have Alexa or Google Assistant support, or any other smart features. But if that’s not a deal breaker, the Boom 3's sound quality and ruggedness will likely be hard to beat at the price. You can pair it with another Boom model for a stereo sound experience, and even pair with multiple Boom and Megaboom speakers for the ultimate party experience. 

This looks like one of the best Bluetooth speaker deals around right now, so bag it while stocks last. 

There are lots of other deals that we're tracking, so be sure to check out our Black Friday deals live blog and the best Cyber Monday deals for more savings on everything from TVs and laptops to appliances, headphones and more Bluetooth speakers.
