    This is probably the best audio purchase I have EVER made! It is everything I could ask for and more. I originally was going to choose the Bose Soundlink III because of brand loyalty, but this speaker had a better deal and it is better than I could have ever imagined! It's loud, has incredible bass, doesn't have any sound distortion, sounds rich and full and the 360 sound is amazing. It sounds great no matter where or how the speaker is positioned and at first I thought the 360 design was a weird concept but I love it. My favorite features are that it is fully waterproof, has easy to use buttons, looks beautiful, and has an aux cord jack. It's also incredibly durable so I don't feel like I need to be gentle with it. If you are thinking of getting a bluetooth speaker I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing it and trying it. I seriously doubt you'll return it.

    BEST SPEAKER YET.

    I have looked up and down for a speaker that is waterproof and also is loud enough to hear at the beach/places I go. If you are looking to use a speaker for that purpose alone I would buy it because hands down still is working perfect after being in the water and around sand. I still use it at home over my other speaker. I’ve used many speakers in my life and so far this is my favorite. It stopped working after a year and a half of using it and I think it was because I charged and used it so much. I called since there is a warranty and they sent me a brand new one. Logitech is very awesome about their products and their customers happiness so I will never regret this buy.

    If you are looking for a bluetooth speaker, this is the one to buy. I HIGHLY recommend this product. I have used this speaker everywhere and it hasn't failed me yet. The pool is a great place to listen to your music and with this speaker I can tune my computer to any internet music station I want and take my speaker outside to enjoy the music. I has long range and never looses connection. The waterproof feature is great, I have submersed and splashed the speaker all day long and it still works great. It is very portable and puts out a super loud sound with no distortion. great for taking to picnics, family reunions, beach, or even the office. I would give this product more stars if I could and I think everyone looking for a speaker should buy one of these - they are AWESOME!

    Great Sound

    Easy to pair, great sound but not quite as loud as I expected for the price I paid. However, that's not the main reason I end up returning the Megaboom. The megaboom didn't look new when I opened the box but I thought that maybe due to the color, finish and rough shipping. After a couple days of handeling I realized that some of the markings must be left by the previous owner. So I decided to return it. The store at first didn't let me because the serial number didn't match what's on the box... this confirmed my suspicion that the speaker was pre-owned. After the manager showed up and looked up my purchase history he did graciously let me return. Thanks, Bestbuy and I will be more careful next time.

    It has really great sound quality & I love that you can connect to other megaboom speakers. The only cons I have are with the battery life (which seems to decrease a lot faster than I expected), the charging port (the position of it is slanted & is sometimes hard to plug in on the first try), and lastly the connectibility between multiple speakers using the app. I have synched mine with another but only by using the opposing persons app. Not sure if there is something wrong with my app but mine is usually up to date so idk. With that being said they are pretty good speakers especially for the price that was paid for them.

    I bought the Megaboom and the Bose Soundlink III because I narrowed my choices down to those. In the end the Megaboom won. Features like 20hrs of use over 12-14 with the Bose. Water proof down to 6ft, Bose not waterproof, the UE app allows you to see the battery level of the speaker on your phone and adjust the EQ settings, no such thing with the Bose. Sound? This thing rocks. Outdoor by the pool at half volume this thing blows the Bose away. Decent bass, but still better than the Bose. Sound quality is better on the UE, the highs are sharper and more crisp than the Bose. Since I'm an audiophile I thought the Bose would win in the small BT speaker category, but it just can't hang with the Megaboom.

    This speaker is made for the outdoors or large spaces, but is still great for an intimate setting. We used it over the holidays for entertaining, keeping the Christmas music flowing. Love being able to control it via the app on my phone. Can turn it on and off and adjust volume. Can also pause/play and skip songs using a tap feature on the speaker. I have tried playing an Adele song on the highest volume to see if it would crack (sound scratchy) and it took everything I thew at it. If you're a stickler for the bass, this isn't the same as a larger entertainment system speaker, but if that's what you're looking for you don't want a portable speaker to begin with. I haven't found a thing to complain about yet. Only reason for 4 stars is the price, but I got a great deal using best buy's price match.

    I have another, smaller, Bluetooth speaker that is best in class, so it was difficult to find a better speaker to meet my needs. I went to BB for another speaker, but the sales lady suggested that I listen to this one as well. She was spot on. I use this to fill a cafeteria size room for singalongs. It works great at filling the room - not just in decibels, bass full, vocals clear, no lag or static as I move around the room with my phone. The Bluetooth performance is better than any I've experienced. The app is nifty, but doesn't add much for my use. Holds a charge longer than I know - days. I love the carrying case and accessory stash. Overall, simple, well made and performs better than expected - best at that price.

    I purchased this speaker as part of the "Deal of the Day". As part of this promotion I purchased this speaker for half the price. Not sure if I would have paid full price for the speaker. The main reason I purchased this speaker as opposed to other leading brand Bluetooth speakers is because this speaker is waterproof. I've always wanted a speaker that I would be able to take with me when I go camping or go swimming & not worry about breaking it because of potential water damage. So far, so good no complaints other than the speaker doesn't sit laying down, only up-right. The only reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because I haven't tried it in wet conditions. So, I don't know how well it will operate under those conditions.

    I've had this speaker for about 5 months and it works really great! It is super easy to setup and pair with other devices. Very simple to actually use this thing, as it only has a few buttons and the app is great and super useful! The sound quality and bass on this thing is truly incredible for its size. This is a pretty powerful speaker and can be used in doors or even outdoors. I used another one of these on the Comal River in New Braunfels and it was great for all of us around! I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested!

    This speaker is ok unless you want something loud, and functional. AS I said in the summary I never write reviews, but i made an exception this time. This speaker work good at low volume. You should read the reviews for the UE megaboom app in the google play store before buying. The on off feature or the equalizer in the app don't work. The battery life is bad, not unusual for this type of product, except the sound degrades even more at 75%. Also requires the stock charger for full charge. I used a random android charger and got 85% in 8 hour. I'm sure the sound would be better if you bought another one for $300 hahaha. Reviews of the app say they have trouble pairing.

    After owning a BLUE one for over a year --that I sadly lost-- and trying the Bose Revolve+ (same $), I decided to stay loyal to UE/Logitech. Pretty much everything about this speaker is perfect and most competitors in this price range are behind on features & overall technology. PROS: Really water proof as long as your charging and aux ports are properly covered. Tested a few times in my pool and freaked out some friends. Still works as intended and expected. Battery life is outstanding and recharges in < 3 hours. Link up several UE products to create one giant speaker or a L&R experience. TIP: Make sure to download relevant App and update speaker's firmware to fix a lot of bugs that have been discovered or yet to be discovered

    Very powerful sound, and very good battery life. I am really satisfied with this purchase. My previous UE purchase was a noise-cancelling headset, and I was very impressed with the build quality, the style, and sound quality of the headset, so when I was looking for portable speakers, I chose to buy the UE Megaboom. The fact that it is water-resistant is also a plus for me, when we are at summer parties and outdoors. The only issue I have experienced so far is that UE Megaboom gets a little "lost" when it is paired to more than one device. I use it mostly with my iPad, but when my iPhone comes into range the UE Megaboom will pair to the iPhone *and* the iPad, and the volume suddenly decreases. This problem is fixed when I turn bluetooth off on the iPhone, so UE Megaboom is paired only to the iPad.

    i purchased my EU Megaboom back in June. I had done a lot of research looking for a speaker that had great sound and also one that I didn't have to worry about if it was to get wet. The design of this speaker is awesome! Even though it is not tiny, the shape makes it easy to carry around. I was a little concerned about spending $300 for a Bluetooth speaker. But once I turned it on and heard the full quality sound I was hooked. The only issue I have had is occasionally the speaker will not sync correctly with my phone as far as the volume level goes. There have been a couple instances where my phone would show it is playing at 100% and the speaker can barely be heard. This is more of a software problem and not a quality of the speaker problem.

    This thing is a far upgrade from my Bose mini sound bar. The battery has excellent life. I got 18 hours of play with 50% volume. It's truly waterproof also. When I dunked it in our pool it played until it hit a foot deep of water. Then it stops playing. Pick it back up and it keeps laying. I think there are pressure flaps, or something, in them that closes the speaker off to prevent water from coming in. Pretty cool. The sound at 100% is very clear. Brookstone Store has a better speaker, but it's bigger and bulkier. This is, by far, the best portable speaker I've owned to date. Doesn't feel cheaply made, either. It IS a Logitech brand. Found that out recently, too. It can be app controlled and Bluetooth is easy to sync on this thing. Buy it!

    I teach private music lessons (French horn), and I go to different locations. Part of my teaching involves playing recording of solo works for my instrument so students can hear what the piece of music sounds like. I can't carry a stereo system around with me, and I need a substantial amount of volume so that if we 'play along' with something that is recorded, it can be loud enough to not be covered up by our live sound on the horn. This Megaboom speaker is really awesome! It is a great teaching tool for me. I found a very good backpack case (actually made for bike riders from REI) that holds the megaboom and my laptop comfortably and I can keep it with me easily everywhere I need to travel to teach. I could not be more happy with this product and how it helps me do my job.

    I bought this speaker just over a year ago and have used it extensively on several occasions. I was easily able to bring this portable speaker in my bag on road trips and to the beach. It’s definitely a great investment if you want to buy a high quality speaker that’s durable and has a lot of battery. I could use this speaker for over 15 hours without having to charge it. Overall the UE Megaboom is an outstanding speaker that has been of great use to me over this past year.

    At first, we were going to get a little portable speaker to replace my old Amazon Tap. We started reading reviews, and found it necessary to go to Best Buy to listen to some of them. We wound up buying a little more than we originally planned after we heard this speaker. It honestly sounds like a hardwired, indoor speaker. This thing is LOUD, but clear. Plently enough base without being distorted. I like high quality speakers, and when we found this one, we decided to spend a little more money to get the quality that this thing puts out. Although we have not tested this out, other reviews say how durable and rugged this thing is. I do believe it!

    Not Bad for Water Resistant

    These are not booming but they offer a decent 360 reach for small groups or days at the beach. It reminds me of your basic boom box that you would take out at the picnic with 6D batteries. I noticed that the audio levels were louder from a computer bluetooth vs a smartphone. It was easy to setup and get going in minutes and because it's splash proof it would be good outdoors for fun of groups 10-15 people. I bought two since they were on sale for $220 each and have them mounted on photo light stands since the bottoms have your basic camera threads.

    I had the Boom II already and wanted another speaker to pair with when I have company over. I bought the Mega Boom because it was more than 50% off and wanted a bigger speaker. This one works perfect for me. I can pair the 2 and create a “Party” with the software you download and can have people on the patio or in the back of my unit and the music can be heard throughout. Even at a higher volume level, the speaker doesn’t sound any different like some other speakers do. With this software, you can have your friends play their music as well when the pair up to the speakers too. It’s like having multiple DJs in the house if you have that multiple people connected. I would highly recommend this product.
