One of the most popular Moto Mods is on sale at a huge 56 percent discount

One of the most popular Moto Mods is on sale at a huge 56 percent discount
While the modular smartphone concept has certainly not proven as disrupting and game-changing as companies like Google and LG expected a number of years ago, one brand still believes it can make a difference to the conventional Android user experience. Before the fourth generation of Motorola's modular Moto Z handsets arrives, existing owners of a device from this relatively popular lineup may want to pay JBL's official US e-store a digital visit.

That's because the JBL SoundBoost 2 Moto Mod is down from a list price of $79.95 to a measly $34.99 at the time of this writing, representing a massive 56 percent discount. That's even heftier than Best Buy's 24 hour-only 50 percent markdown offered last week, although the third-party retailer actually had a long list of Moto Mods on sale for Moto Z-series device owners to choose from.

JBL only makes the SoundBoost 2 speaker add-on (and the original SoundBoost), so naturally, the audio-specialized company does not sell other Moto Mods with or without a discount right now. Interestingly, this isn't included in JBL's extensive spring sale, suggesting you might want to hurry and pull the trigger at the aforementioned $34.99 price. That will get you the brand's trademark high quality audio technology in a small and lightweight package you can easily attach to a Moto Z3, Z3 Play, Z2 Force, Z2 Play, or original Moto Z, Z Play, and Z Force for a big mobile sound boost.

The magnetic snap-on smartphone accessory comes with its very own 1,000 mAh battery good for up to 10 hours of audio playback, as well as a built-in kickstand enhancing the versatility of your Moto Z-series handset.

Meanwhile, it's also worth pointing out that the aforementioned spring sale brings a slew of other super-popular JBL products down to some remarkably low prices. The Clip 3, Flip 4, and Charge 4 Bluetooth speakers, for instance, will set you back $40, $75, and $120 respectively after $20 to $30 discounts, with the Reflect Contour 2 and Reflect Mini 2 wireless headphones priced at $70 a pair right now, and a Google Assistant-powered JBL Link 500 speaker fetching $200 instead of $400.
