    Several years ago, I purchased the UE Boom speaker. I loved it and it still works well. I was excited to buy a Mega Boom. The first one was broken and it distorted things so badly that the sound wasn't clear. They accepted my return and the next one was definitely better. It seems like it starts to distort the longer it is used. My main complaint is that they advertise that they. An be paired to hook up to 200 speakers. I have paired my UE Boom with my brother-in-laws and it worked great. Unfortunately the UE Boom and Mega Boom won't pair with each other because they are different types. It really defeated the purpose of my purchase.

    Not for the long haul

    I have purchased two Mega Booms in the past few years. The first one died and the battery cannot take a charges. Conveniently, the battery died outside of the warranty period. The other Mega Boom blew its speaker and sounds like crap. Based on this run rate, I expect the other UE bluetooth speaker my wife bought me will fail in the next several months. There is no way in this world I am ever going to buy another UE speaker. They dont last and UE doesnt stand behind their product.

    Loud, durable, and crisp clear sound

    I bought this speaker after doing some research on a new outdoor speaker and this one a winner! The sound that comes out is crisp and clear and packs a really good bass. I'm into more electronic music and from the highs to the lows, the sound was perfect. And not to mention the durability and waterproofing are a huge plus. The app that goes with the speaker works great too. For the money, this speaker is definitely worth it. I read some reviews about other outdoor speakers and listened to some in stores and nothing compares to the Megaboom. I definitely want to get another one for the pairing up of two megabooms.

    Better Than A "Beats Pill" Any Day

    If you're looking for great sound quality and a speaker that can get loud, look no further. This speaker is ridiculous. And the fact that it's waterproof on top of it? Need I say more? But seriously, it's so versatile. From outdoor parties, to just wanting music in the shower without freaking out over a little water. This speaker has fantastic sound quality. Getting just the perfect amount of bass. A lot of other bluetooth speakers seriously fail in this area. The main reason for the title isn't just the sound quality, but how loud the device can get. This thing will blow your ears off in the best way. And if you decide to "double up" with 2 booms....you'll never be happier.

    Disappointed in Best Buy

    Severely disappointed in Best Buy. I purchased a UE MEGABOOM a few weeks ago. The advertising from Best Buy said it was new. I received the speaker and compared the s/n number on the speaker to the container it came in and it was different!! When I looked closely at at the speaker I noticed there were finger prints on it and it looked used!! This item was used or refurbished. I can’t believe that a reputable place like Best Buy would do this. Extremely disappointed.

    Loud, clear sound quality. No harsh sound and good bass quality as well. Didn't even have to use the full volume on the packed river. The speaker never fell in the water but, it was attached to the yeti and likely had more than, a lot of water dropping on it from fiddling to get drinks. Worth the money! Careful when Bluetooth is connected. We left the phone connected to the speaker in the hotel room and had to go get it halfway down the river which was a trek, to disconnect it from the speaker. No way to manually disconnect Bluetooth from a device on the speaker and it wouldn't allow another phone to kick the other connection out or connect more than one device at a time.

    I purchased one speaker a few months ago on sale and the sound was great. I downloaded the app and saw that you can daisy chain multiple speakers to play from the same source, so I bought another one. I plug my iphone in to my surround receiver in my family room, link it to the two speakers and place on in the basement and one on the 2nd level and have surround in the whole house. Taking it to my aunt's house for the holidays and will be able to pump christmas music throughout the house. No wires so can put anywhere. Well worth the money!

    I couldn't be happier with my purchase of the MegaBoom. After comparing many speakers, I finally decided to go with this gem. My roommate has the Bose $300 speaker, which has excellent sound, but doesn't have a few features that I love about the UE. I was drawn by the large battery life, waterproof feature, dual speaker pairing (if I decide to buy another), great sound, and app. The battery has proved to be a beast. The Sound is fantastic. The battery really does last, The app has become my new alarm, and I have no problems waking up now thanks to volume control for any song. It is also very compact and has 360 degree sound. Trust me, this is the speaker to own.

    Max volume run time

    I don’t know if there’s a difference in colors, but i bought the charcoal one in November 2018 and it’s run time on maximum vol today was 2hrs and 30 min from the full charge. It tells you that battery are very low, but still will let you listen music another 30-45 min i assume. Of course you not going to play it on max indoor, but i personally using it when I’m biking, so yeah it has to be on max vol always. Now I can’t make desicion to buy something else, or just keep using this one.

    Over rated speaker

    What a disappointment this speaker was. I purchased it specifically for a party we were having and could not get it to sync with our I phones, I pads or I pods. It did sync with my laptop so I know the speaker worked, but that didn't help us on the day of the party. Seriously, for a speaker that is sold specifically for wireless use how is it that they can't make it work properly without needing to contact customer service. It would get a 1 star if not for the fact that it did sound OK when paired with the laptop. Also, the speaker comes with no instructions or owners manual which didn't help matters...

    Mega Sound

    I love my UE Megaboom. I recently picked it up on sale over holidays. It has more bass than the Boom 2 but is on the same level sound wise. It has a little bit longer battery life at 20hrs compared to the Boom 2's 15 hrs. Cool that you can pair it with other UE speakers, not just Megabooms to get a louder sound. The UE app is loaded with features and they seem to be always working on updates. Great durable speaker that should last many years. The Megaboom is a larger version of the Boom 2 with more bass and a longer battery life. Pretty much the same as Boom 2 otherwise. Both are highly recommended.

    My first impression of this speaker was, "Wow, this is heavier than it looks!" The constuction of this speaker is very solid; it doesn't feel cheap in any way. It produces a good sound overall with good bass response, it plays pop, alternative, and rock-n-roll very well and at pretty loud levels without issue, but is really not designed for boomin' bass. If you're looking for something that you can take to the beach, toss in the sand, and forget about, even if a wave washes over it, or take to the pool and not worry about it getting wet, then this is your speaker. If you're looking for a booty-shakin' dance music source, you'll probably want to look elsewhere.

    The sound on this speaker is very good. To be water proofed to the extent it is and still have such good audio quality is pretty cool. I have not had any issues with using the app and I can turn the speaker on and off from the app on my iPhone 8. Some people have said they couldn’t do that. The picking up speaker and tapping your hand on the top to skip tracks forward or pause doesn’t work. Not a big deal to me. I also love the battery life. I use daily about an hour while getting ready for work. I only have to charge about once a month. The convenience of this speaker makes it great.

    Among the wireless bluetooth speakers that I've owned, (JBL Infinity,and Bose), This one is hands down, THE best. It has crisp and natural sounding mids and highs. The bass never gets tubby, or weird. It sounds wonderful in a confined space , or outdoors. The battery life is, as advertised. About 20hours on a single charge. The supporting UE app is not necessary, but advisable, if you'd like to get the biggest band for your buck. I own two of them. I would have given it a 4.5, if the rating system worked that way.

    After using my Ultraboom for about a month now, I've become more enamoured of it than my Bose WaveLink II speaker! I have been consistently getting more than 21 hours of battery life (Logitech only says 20 hours) at moderate levels, since I use it for "background" music, streaming from various web sources. I admit I haven't had occasion to test the water-resistant features, nor do I care to, but it is a rugged speaker and shows no sign of wear in spite of frequent handling. I can recommend this speaker without any reservation whatsoever! Get yours today and keep your hands off mine!

    I bought this having read many reviews about how loud it can be, and thinking I could use this to play music for a birthday party at the park (around 40-50 people). I'm disappointed to report that it simply does not have the power to play music outdoor at any appreciable level. Even at max volume you couldn't really hear the music unless you were within 10-15 feet of it. Any further away and it sounded about the same volume as a car passing playing music with lowered windows. So it's good for background music in this situation, but not for dancing or anything where music is a central part of the gathering.

    I purchased this speaker after having purchased the Beats XL and returning it because of a recall. The Mega Boom is easier to carry around and comes with a cool case. It sounds great also. This speaker is mainly used for church vocal rehearsals and the 360 degree listening is a huge plus for that. We can all gather around in a circle and sing our warm-ups with the speaker in the middle. The charger cable was hard for me to find. It's in a hidden compartment in the case. I have not used it by the water, but the waterproof feature would be cool for by-the-pool use. So far, I am very happy with this purchase.

    I believe that the sound quality of the UE megaboom is significantly better than any other music device I have had. I have caught myself just getting lost in the sounds that are coming out to the equipment. The battery is insane how long it lasts. I have never had a battery for anything last as long as this does. I listen to it literally every night for over a week before needing to charge it. The distance you can be away from it before loosing connectivity via bluetooth is also impressive. I have never lost connection while in my house. My wife and I love it!

    I love speaker! I got it three weeks ago, and I've been using it almost everyday. The sound quality is amazing, its way better than my phone and laptop. The design is simple and modern, but it still looks great! The battery life is pretty long, I've listened for a week without charging it (a couple hours everyday). The connectivity is overall quick and easy. Also, the double up is a great feature because you can pair it with another speaker using the UE Megaboom app, and it can pair with the UE Boom too. Overall, it's an amazing speaker, I would definitely buy another one when mine breaks.

    I was cautiously optimistic when I purchased this speaker. After reading so many positive reviews, I didn’t want to get my hopes up too much, only to be disappointed. But the reviews were right on. This speaker has amazing sound for its size. Crystal clear, with zero distortion at the highest volume, which is pretty incredible. Battery life is just amazing. I’ve only had this speaker for a little over a week, but count me amazed. I honestly didn’t think you could get this kind of sound out of a speaker this size.
