    Good But Not Great

    This item does what it says it does but I think that there are some aspects that could have made it much better. You use the app to connect via bluetooth and it connects easy, as well as the instructions being easy to understand. The music quality is good and the volume buttons on the device is nice. A lot of my problems with it actually have to do with the app. First, there is something called one touch which can be used to go directly to your playlists. However, it is only available in the native app on my iPhone. I don't use the Apple library for most of my music and so this feature is of no use to me. It would be great if I could choose any music app on my phone for this feature. Second, I also dislike that there is no widget for the app. Third, within the app I cannot control the music that is playing. If I want to lower or increase the volume and choose to do it through the app I can do that. But if I want to pause or skip to a different song by using my phone I have to go into the music app I use. While this may not be a huge deal to some people, I prefer to be able to control the music from within the same app. Overall, a good item but it could be so much better if the app was better.

    The Ulitmate ears boom3 is a good compact size and well constructed, feels like a quality product. For it's size it plays quite loud with a good dispersed sound that can fill a room. At full volume it remains clear without distortion. The app for IOS works ok and it's nice to have the equalizer settings to adjust the sound. The docking station looks like it would be a good thing to have to make charging easier but its way too expensive for what it is. A couple of things I'd like to see improved is the USB charger, which is micro and not USB-C, also the bass is lacking and the sound is not full to my taste. One thing I really hate is the voice prompts and sounds, it is way too loud, I could not find a way to lower the level. There is an option to turn it off but I would prefer a low level.

    I have boom2 and mega boom2. Bought boom3 . Design is much better than boom2 but no usb c port.. i dont know if everyone notice but the boom3 doesnt have a microphone to take calls or to talk to google assistant . Ue boom 2 did that.. ue might have reduced the price but it did make compromises.... even a cheaper speakers have microphone these days. I dont thing i will buy a megaboom 3. And no where on the website there is a mention that one cannot take calls on boom 3... really dissapointing for these omitions.. i would recommend to stick to boom2 unless you need new design. Or else the sound almost is same.

    Sounds ok, but not ok enough to justify the price

    This is as good as any run of the mill larger bluetooth speaker, but that's about it. The only added benefit is the ability to float - nice for the pool maybe, but that's it! The bass sounds muddy. You can pair via normal means or via the app-store app which allows a little more control over the sound, but still, it's not worth the selling price.

    While I really liked the sound quality I could not get the 2 I bought to pair up. Contacted the company but wasn’t getting any help from them (only available via email). That was the deciding factor for my return of the product.

    The one major con that I had as an android user is that the only way that the magic button would work is by using the deezer app and then it charges u monthly to use it. I would prefer if it would of let u use spotify or pandora.

    This UE speaker is impressive in its build quality and the packaging is rather nice. However when it comes to sound it leaves much to be desired.

    Sounds good for a Bluetooth speaker, but wouldn’t pair well when trying to connect numerous speakers
