    Great Speaker for Music

    Posted

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    I initially bought this speaker for two reasons: to hook up to my Switch via aux cable for when I dock it and to be able to play music in the background while I'm working on homework, programming, etc. Two friends of mine suggested that I get an Ultimate Ears speaker, so I bought this one when I saw it on sale. It arrives well packaged and comes with the speaker, and a charging cable, you will have to buy an aux cable on your own. Pairing the speaker on my phone was quick and simple and using the aux port only required me to plug it in. There is an app for this speaker, which I downloaded but never used. One of my friends that already owns a UE Megaboom told me that using the app had caused his speaker to update its firmware and that it stopped working as well afterwards. In other words, just use it like you would any other Bluetooth speaker and you won't have any problems. One of the big selling points of the speaker was it's ruggedness and durability. I personally use the speaker indoors, so I can't really say if either of those two aspects are very reliable. I haven't yet stuffed the speaker into the bathtub to check the waterproof feature, but it has fallen off my desk once or twice when I tripped over the aux cable and it survived the 3-4 foot fall. The battery also lasts very long. I usually have it on for a good 5-6 hours per day and it lasts me several days. I don't know how the battery degrades over time as I have only had the speaker for 1-2 months. The speaker also has a neat feature that allows it to turns itself off after fifteen minutes without audio input. Considering I sometimes forget to turn it off when I leave the room, this is very good for preserving battery life. For me, one of the big selling points was audio quality. I often listen to music through headphones and my integrated speakers aren't that great. Even at high volumes, the UE Megaboom keeps good overall audio quality and its very pleasant to listen to. I'm not an audiophile, but one of my friends that recommended this speaker is. This obviously isn't going to give you studio accuracy, but its very nice to listen to, something that almost everyone who I've asked about the sound quality has told me. In order connect this speaker to my switch and my desktop computer, I needed the ability to plug in an aux cord. This works flawlessly. I can connect both via aux and via Bluetooth at the same time. Bluetooth does override aux, but it switches back and forth between the two depending on which source is currently transmitting audio. This speaker is also really easy for my friends to use. I personally use an android phone, one of my friends has connected to it with her iPhone, and my other friend regularly pairs with the speaker using his MacBook. Overall, this speaker is very user friendly and works quite well. Though I got the speaker for $100, because of a sale, I would definitely consider the speaker worth the $250 price tag it usually holds.

    Bigger than it looks

    The Megaboom sounds good and big enough that, rather than other bluetooth speakers, it may be better to compare it to full-sized speakers. I have many bookshelf and tower speakers I've spent a lot of listening hours with, and I hoped to buy a wireless speaker with sound resembling a full-sized speaker. And that it does! I planned to use the Megaboom mostly for podcasts and occasionally music, but it sounds so good that I'm enjoying music on it far more than I dared to hope. It fills up a room, and its wide sound dispersion makes it far less location dependent than most all speakers. The bass is incredibly full for its size and works for the vast majority of music I listen to (maybe 90-95%), but there are limits. It can muddle and distort when taken too far--avoid dubstep! For podcasts, it mostly sounds very good, but I'm surprised by coloration it gives to some male vocals. They can sound overly raspy or bassy, to the point of sounding muddled or distorted. This American Life may be the most popular podcast; it generally has very good sound quality (or so I thought), but Ira Glass' and some other men's voices seem to have some distortion like the speaker cannot clearly and accurately recreate their voices. This could be an issue with the recording or compression or certain frequencies; I've not noticed this in music or most other 'lesser' podcasts, even with bassier males. This is probably nitpicking, and the podcasts may be to blame, but it can be jarring. The sound did seem to improve from burn-in with use. I'd liken the Megaboom to a really good modern day boombox. It's far smaller than a boombox, and its bluetooth makes it a wonderful mate with smartphones, tablets, etc. With 20 hours' battery life, tough build quality, water resistance, small size, wide dispersion, and impressive sound quality and power, it's very easy and compelling to bring it wherever you go. I find myself taking it throughout my home and my world. $300 may seem like a lot for a mere bluetooth speaker; but it seems like it should have good longevity, and its features are so compelling that you may want to take it with you to a great many places. Even if you only left it at home, I'd see it being a sound companion (pun) to lovingly produce the sounds of your life.

    UA Megaboom This is a great sounding speaker. This is being used in an Operating Room. Lots of other very loud equipment and this has no problem being heard over all that background noise. In fact where you put the speaker can affect the max volume (see below). Waterproof: This is being used in a surgical setting and it is wiped down 5-6 times a day without any effect to how the speaker sounds. Sound: The treble is great and the bass is good. The closer you put it to a wall the better the bass gets. A corner wall is even better. The 360 degree speakers bounce and the sound is even better. Battery: After 1 month the battery life is fantastic. My 1st charge lasted for over 30 hours. Not sure if it will keep that up. When battery needs to be charged it will actually tell you. You will hear a female voice say "battery critical". Nice touch that. I have not tried it with another UA speaker for the " 1 touch" stereo affect. If it as good as this one it will be fantastic though. It has a hook on the bottom that just screws in to the base on the speaker. That is my only concern. If it comes unscrewed while hanging from something at the beach or pool, ect ect. A better way to attach a D-ring to hang it would take that worry away. I see that there are cases that will also remedy this issue. Not sure if those cases will effect the sound though. Though the price $299 is expensive it feels to me well worth the money. It is well built and lives up to all of its descriptions and specifications. I highly recommend this speaker. You will not be disappointed.

    UE Surpasses Expectations Again

    After owning the smaller UE Boom for a year, I saw that UE released another version of the product that was bigger, louder, more durable, and had better battery life. The second I saw the differences, I immediately got in my car and drove to best buy to buy myself what was labeled as the UE Megaboom. Right out of the box, I noticed the differences immediately. The bass is improved significantly over the smaller Boom, the volume was reasonably louder, and the software was much better. The ability to turn the speaker on and off without having to touch the physical speaker is much more useful than one would think. I should also note that I was able to pair my new UE Megaboom with my UE Boom for a stereo L and R setup without a problem. I've taken this speaker everywhere with me and it's durability has been tested at the beach, in the pool (yes, I literally put it on a float in the pool and it was sitting in water), and under the burning hot sun. This speaker has never had any overheating issues and truly is waterproof. The UE Megaboom has produced enough volume everywhere I have used it. The battery life is also fantastic; if it's charged overnight, there shouldn't be too much of a problem with the speaker getting through the whole day unless you're blasting it at 100% the whole time. Another amazing feature is the 360 degree sound which allows me to put it in places such as kitchen island and hear the same sound from anywhere around it. Overall, this is the very best speaker you can get for the money.

    Great sound in a tough, small package

    First, $300 is a lot of money. I thought long and hard about spending it on my Klipsch ear buds, and again before purchasing my Megaboom. I've had the Klipsch ear buds for a few years now, and every day I'm glad I bought them. I've had the Megaboom for only 2 days, but things are starting off the same way -- I'm glad I decided to buy it. I agree with the description of the sound quality from almost all of the other reviewers. It's bass isn't as deep or as strong as the Klipsch KMC-1 I purchased (and returned), but it is still very satisfying. I don't think you'll be disappointed in the bass output at all. The mids and highs are clear and clean with a very open sound and a surprisingly large stereo sound stage. I've listened to rock, pop, singer/songwriter, country,a little rap and a little classical. I'm quite pleased overall with what I've heard from the Megaboom. I also *really* like the extra features of this speaker -- it's extremely portable and suitcase-friendly (I travel a lot). I like the iOS app and the alarm feature. As a point of reference, I don't use any equalization on my iPhone, and I keep this unit set to "Standard", which seems to my ears to be identical to a flat custom EQ setting (all sliders at zero). It pairs easily with any of my Bluetooth devices, and it automatically re-pairs with the last device used. If you can justify the expense, this is a great portable Bluetooth speaker.

    Amazing Boom

    I have had the Mega Boom for a few days and continue to be amazed by the sound quality. It's truly magnificent. At low or high volume, there is no distortion...just great, pure sound. That's the most important feature in a wireless speaker for me. I have had the regular Boom for a few years and have really enjoyed it. I will continue to enjoy it while using the Mega Boom for occasions when I want bigger sound, for example, while outside on my patio. For use in a bigger area, Mega Boom blows away the already stellar Boom. There are some other upgrades with the Mega Boom. It's completely waterproof. I don't have to worry if it accidently gets dropped in the pool. It has an app that can be used to turn it off and on from a distance, adjust levels of bass and treble, etc and there's even an alarm clock. I can wake up to awesome sound to start my day off right! If you want even bigger sound, or music in different rooms, you can link multiple Booms together. No need for super expensive speakers permanently mounted on walls inside or outside your home. Mega Boom takes care of this with ease. Thanks, Logitech, for this first class product. I always turn to you when I need quality, whether it's a computer mouse, keyboard or wireless speaker. I wouldn't look elsewhere. Mega Boom is worth every penny!

    I must say that, even though I seldom give 5-star ratings to goods or services, I can absolutely give the UE Megaboom this rating with absolutely no reservations! This beast can really bring it, as many of the reviews I read previous to my purchase stated, and it's nice to have that power, but if your use case is not a 24/7 party, you'll be happy to know that the performance in the 25% - 75% volume range is excellent! I like to listen to music that had some depth, layers and good separation, and the Megaboom really delivers nicely! This speaker has a great form factor, it is very portable and delivers great sound wherever you are. I haven't tested the waterproof factor yet, but I can say that it has been rained on and used in steamy situations without a hitch. Some great places to use this are around the house; kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, garage and back yard. Or, charge it up and take it to the pool, to the park for a picnic, On the trail for a hike or bike ride or use it on your boat or in your camper. Also great for job sites, dorm rooms or music at the office. I've used mine for presentations and also know someone who has one built into his costume that he wears to ComocConn. I bought my girlfriend one of these for christmas as well, and using the app, I have used both, and that configuration sounds REALLY good! I have also recommended this to friends, one of whom went with a different product and wasn't satisfied. He ended up returning the unsatisfactory device and going with the Megaboom and has been happy since. I haven't seen the Megaboom 2 yet, but I'm in NO hurry to upgrade...this device is solid and likely won't be going anywhere for a good long time! If you're in the market, give this some serious consideration, you'll be glad you did!

    BEST outdoor speaker there is!

    First off, I love Bose. I have many Bose items, but Bose Speakers are not made to be outdoors. They do not have 360° sound, they are not water proof and they are not shock proof. So many times I would put my SoundLink on my patio table and it would appear dusty at the bottom, even though my table is pretty clear. I would also CONSTANTLY have to move it for better placement. Bose Soundlink's are made for indoors where they are 2nd to NONE! They sound phenomenal.... But for outdoor use, I AM OBSESSED WITH MY MEGABOOM!! I set in on the ground near the leg of my gazebo and forget all about it. I don't have to worry about my 2 dogs running into it and breaking it since it is VERY durable. I don't have to worry about re-positioning it depending on where I am at in the yard due to it's 360° design. The bluetooth signal strength is A LOT better than my Bose, so I don't have to worry about walking too far off and the speaker going out until I come back. I don't have to worry about sudden rainfall ruining it since it is COMPLETELY water proof. It also sounds very good (not as good as Bose) and gets even louder than my Bose. I don't have to worry about battery life (much better than the Bose). If you want an indoor, stationary speaker that sounds amazing, get the Bose. If you want something made for the outdoors, get the Megaboom!

    Great BT Speaker!!!!!!

    So after apple recalled the Beats Pill XL, I was in search for something comparable. I first tried the Bose Soundlink III and returned it in less than 24hrs. It just didn't have the bass or volume I was use to with the Beats Pill XL. Friends of mine had the UE Boom and really liked it, so they recommended that I check out the UE Megaboom since it was suppose to be slightly bigger with better bass and volume than the Boom. Even the sales guy at Best Buy recommended the Megaboom. Well they were right, this speaker exceeded my expectations. The sound quality is great. No distortion, good bass, and plenty of volume. This speaker can be placed anywhere, whether it's in the middle of a room, in a corner of the room, or outside on the patio, this speaker sounds good. It truly has the 360 sound to it so no matter what direction you are from the speaker, it's going to sound good. Then there is the app for it. What a great feature. It has an equalizer with some preset and an open spot for your own customization. You can set an alarm, see battery life, and turn the speaker on and off all from the app. Add in this speaker is water proof with a battery that can last 20+ hrs (depending on what volume you listen to your music at) & you have one of the beat BT speakers out right now. If you're on the fence with which BT speaker to go with or you're a Beats Pill XL recall victim like I was, the UE Megaboom should satisfy what you're looking for.

    Right out of the box the size of the Megaboom is impressive. The weight makes me feel like it's very durable. Also it charges fast when fully drained (2:20 - 2:30). Now for the first battery test I checked out the loudness then I put it at a comfortable level. My play time on one charge went over 26 hours. Almost 26 and a quarter. Bravo! I do have a PC so I am able to use the auto updater on my computer and I have updated both my Boom and Megaboom firmware in less than 20 minutes. Yes I would definitely recommend UE's products to; family, friends, co-workers, and strangers. I have also read the other less flattering comments about other UE products, but that has definitely not been my experience. I got a first generation Boom in early 2014 on sale for $89. I will admit I have put this thing through the test. It fell off the roof of the house on the concrete and off my car. I was only doing about 10-15 miles an hour, but the speed bump give it a little bit of lift and I saw it bounce then roll down the asphalt a ways. Both times I found it and it's been working fine. The battery could still go about 3-4 hours on 2/3 volume even now. But most of the time I have it plugged in because I'm there for a longer duration. I've been nothing but pleased with it and have been looking forward to it's bigger and better replacement.

    If your budget can support a $250 dollar bluetooth speaker, I can't recommend this enough. But I waited and got it on Deal of the Day for $99 what a bargain!!!! The sound quality is amazing and very balanced across different frequencies and timbres thanks to what sounds like some clever digital signal processing, and its fully water proof up to 3 feet for 30 minutes! Battery life is also amazing, though not the highest in its class (but who cares. 20 hours. Lol). I have no complaints about the sound. Very solid and represented accross the spectrum. It feels exceedingsolid and tough as well. I have no concerns with using it in real world conditions. Rounding out the feature set is the UE app for ios and android that can turn it into an alarm, pair it with a second megaboom, and adjust the equalizer. I cannot elucidate how amazing it is to set this as an alarm because when ot goes off, you can just grab it and take it to the shower without missing a beat. All in all, an amazing level up to the UE Boom. Its a faithful upscale and if your in the market for a tough, element-proof bluetooth speaker that sounds great, this is going to be the best choice at the writing of this review. I overall awesome speaker I would recommend it.

    If you're looking for a really good Bluetooth speaker and still on the fence about which one to buy don't be. Get off of that fence and buy this one. When you buy a speaker this small you have to give up a little of something or in some cases a lot of something. This speaker will not shake the walls. Don't even shop for small Bluetooth speakers if you need that kind of performance. They make Bluetooth speakers that will shake the walls but you're moving up to a much bigger speaker set and about $500 just to join the club. The MegaBoom is well worth the money compared to similarly priced units that don't sound anywhere as good. I did some pretty intensive comparison shopping. I looked at Harmon kardon, Bose, fugoo, monster and a few other brands. I kept coming back to the MegaBoom. So one day I just bought it. I bought it from bestbuy and they only had a demo display that wouldn't allow me to connect to,it to test drive it for real. So I just bought it to play with it since I couldn't do it in the store. It was the only unit that was like that. All the others I could connect to and play my personal library through them. Lucky for Best Buy I enjoyed the performance of it and I didn't return it 30 minutes later. It's small footprint takes up little space and can also be hung on a hook. It fills the room with rich sound and quite a bit of bass. A suprising amount of bass from such a compact package. So buy the MegaBoom with confidence

    Ok. Bottom line. This is the best Bluetooth speaker I have ever heard or tried. Sound is amazing. Of course that should be the first concern. Volume is really good. Great for any outdoor gathering. More on that in a moment. Let's talk battery life. AMAZING! It says 19 hours. I just got back from a four day vacation. I used it every morning for an hour and two hours at night. I never had to charge it. I had purchased a Sony-SRS-X7. 2 hours tops. Way too short. I returned it. Plus the bass on this blows it away. Of course there's a 100 dollar difference. Worth every penny. I contemplated the beats xl, however it had been recalled due to a fire hazard. Ok, back to the volume. It's loud by itself, but you can double up speakers. I snagged a 99 dollar ue roll and together you can get stereo fun like crazy. I did have a little trouble getting them to double up. Now that they are locked together it happens automatically. The app is fun and easy to use. I know the options out there. The Bose version does sound great too, but you can't add speakers. The Harmon battery life is 5 hours and again you can't add speakers. Yeah the price is a bit on the high side, but trust me it's worth it.

    The market team didn't develop the name Megaboom for no reason. This little guy packs some major power that is clear and loud! This at it's max setting still delivers. Other speakers units tend to distort at a certain high level but this little guy will leave you impressed. With the MegaBoom being water resistant and shock resistant you can take it anywhere and not have to worry. I personally added a D ring that I keep in the case When I need to hang it. UE put some major thought into developing this. Don't let the price tag scare you to a cheaper brand, you'll regret it later with all the functionalities this thing brings. More than once this little guy has been the topic of conversion leaving the party goers as impressed as I was. Then the 20 hr battery life has kept the party going night after night one the same charge. Don't forget to add their app to your phone for the ultimate experience. You can control the whole unit from your phone and see the battery life. The app also gives you the option to use it as an alarm clock. Now you can't tell your boss that you slept through your alarm with the power of this thing going off across the room. Once again UE thought of everything in developing this. So don't let the price tag scare you off because this thing is in a league of its own and won't leave you disappointed!

    So after batting it around in my head for quite some time, I finally took the plunge and purchased it. I was originally going to be using it for when I was out fishing, however, I use it way more than that. I use it at home, in the car, at the lake, wheverever. It withstands drops like a champ. I have dropped mine from 4 or so feet onto concrete and barely even a scratch. The waterproofing on it holds up quite well. I use it in the shower as well as right next to the lake while out fishing. I love the app remote which allows you to turn up or down the volume, turn the speaker on and off, as well as change the equalizer. Super easy to use, loud, and amazing sound quality. My one complaint though is the metal loop at the top for connecting a carabineer is not the strongest. It does tend to break. It is spring wire though so it is easy to bend and put it back on. It is also nice that if you have a party, you can connect multiple speakers to one device using the block party mode and you are able to mount them on tripods so you can fill an entire area with whatever you are listening to. Great for students, outdoorsy people and even for people who want something just for at home.

    So I'm the type person who likes to listen to music while in the shower. My previous speaker broke after like 3 years of ownership. I noticed this speaker had gone on sale as a Black Friday special and boy am I glad I bought this item. It's really loud. It isn't as huge of a speaker as other models or other brands similar product. Also the fact that this speaker stands up it also has a small footprint in comparison to my Sony XB41 which has a large footprint and if you are trying to minimize space usage you cant go wrong with speaker. Battery life is awesome typically I can get a solid 4 or 5 days from one charge listening to about 30 mins to 1 hour per day. Charging speaker can be somewhat of a pain since you have to very precise plugging in charger cord. Overall this speaker is awesome and now I'm a big fan of Ultimate Ears speakers.

    I was using an inexpensive iHome system in my basement workshop, and when the RCA connector gave out I went to Best Buy to get the same Bose blue-tooth speaker I had bought for my son. While I was browsing other choices, one of the associates showed me the UE Boom, which he owned and preferred over the Bose. I was impressed to say the least. Then we both listened to the Megaboom, which they had just gotten in. I was even more impressed (and so was he), and and our preview even attracted another associate over to join us. I am more that satisfied with this speaker. It's form and function are exceptional. In particular it's features are simple, exactly what is needed, and work flawlessly. For a blue-tooth speaker, the sound is well beyond what I had expected. It is also a quality build, both attractive and solid. I use it in a dusty workshop and it cleans up nicely. In my opinion, this speaker is in all respects heads above the others I previewed in this price range. I am very happy with this purchase!

    So after my Beats Pill XL was recalled, I searched for a comparable replacement. First tried the Bose Sound link 3. If you only like to listen to music at half volume then this will be great for you. If you're like me and like to have the option of playing your music loud, don't even bother with the Bose Soundlink 3. Needless to say, I returned it less than 24hrs of purchasing it. Next up was the UE Mega Boom. From the moment you are taking this speaker out of the packaging to the moment you hear it playing, you can tell alot of thought and planning went into this product. The sound quality is great on this speaker. Has good highs, mids, and enough bass. This speaker can get pretty loud and all while sounding good. There is an app that allows you to adjust the sound the way you want it with a custom equalizer. You can also turn the speaker on and off with the same app. The app gives you the option to par two mega booms or even a mega boom with boom together. The battery life is really good, 20+ hrs of play time (all depends on the volume you're playing your music at of course). Factor all of those things in with the fact this thing is water proof and you have yourself one of the best portable speaker out on the market today.

    The speaker is beautiful. You can tell that it is built with find materials. The only downside is that the plastic can get scratched and leave Mark's. It's a soft rubber. The sound is great. It has a deep base and goes as loud as I would want to. It truly is waterproof. I have thrown into a pool and is fine. I was a little hesitant at first due to how expensive this product is, but I have no fear of throwing it into the pool again. I think the price is a little high. Hopefully in the future, it will be brought down another hundred dollars. I like to go long boarding and carry it into my backpack. It is a little bit too big, I think, to be carrying it around when you're on adventures. I would recommend the UE Roll four carry along adventures. The UE boom bay also be a good choice. I would recommend getting the Megaboom if you plan on setting in down and not caring it with you. It comes with a nice app. You can pair it up with another UE speaker. I personally wish I could pair it up with more speakers than 1. Overall, it is a GREAT speaker! I recommend it if you have the cash and are NOT balling on a budget.

It seams pretty indestructible and I can attest to them working fine after being dropped in a bucket of water. Using the app I can adjust the EQ which works pretty well. Instead of over boosting a frequency range it will lessen others to minimize distortion. With two Megabooms linked you can set one up as left and one as right to get great stereo sound for a party. When two are paired there is a small audio delay which makes watching movies a bit rough at times. As with any current Bluetooth the signal does drop out for a second here and there.

    I would recommend this to a friend
