The Boom 3 is perfect for taking camping, to the pool or on a bike ride. It will fit very well in the water bottle slot on most bicycles. It's waterproof and if you happen to drop it in the pool or the lake it will float. It's a good on the go speaker.
The Boom 3 can be controlled through the UE app, which will have to be updated for the Boom 3. Out of the box the Boom 3's treble is dull and lifeless. The app does have some EQ settings and a custom option, but it doesn't seem to want to stay on the custom EQ if you use it. I found it better to use a dedicated EQ app on my phone. With EQ enabled, the treble (highs) were much clearer and enjoyable. You can set up playlists and control that from the magic button on the speaker.
The speaker itself is covered in a hard fabric covering, similar to the JBL Flip 4 and some of their other speakers. Has a loop to attach a carabiner, not included. Bottom of the speaker is a connector for charging from a docking style base plate, also not included. Boom 3 did move the micro-USB charging port from the bottom to the side, which is an improvement. No power brick included with this speaker, just a charging cable.
Overall, this is a solid speaker. It's slightly larger than my JBL Flip4 and plays a little louder and with a little more bass capability than the Flip 4. $150 is pretty pricey, IMO, but you do get a solid, rugged speaker with solid battery life, good output and sound quality when properly EQ'd.

Love the box it came in as much as the sound quality!
Logitech brought their "A" GAME to the party with this one. So easy to pair (via bluetooth). Even have an app that can walk you through it. You really want to load the app and get the extra features built in the ULTIMATE EARS speaker.
Visually the two-tone (grey and black threads) fabric is cool to look at, as well as comfortable to hold and tough for rough play.
The charger is a standard USB micro with a long white cable included. There is an optional charging base so you can just plop the BOOM 3 on it, charge and play at the same time.
Cool feature: link up to 150, not a typro!, 150 other speakers. Can you even imagine? . (pun intended)
The app lets you link two or more quickly. I tested my new speaker while painting the garage door yesterday. What great sound!
The plus and minus symbols on the back are actually volume up and down control buttons! Clever! On the top one push on or off. Special center button for pause, skip or via the APP special playlist feature.
Even without the great other features it sounds fantastic. No more 50-pound boomboxes of the 70's.
This is my first UE speaker but I liked it so mucccccch! Qulaity of material used in it is super high, soft fabric all around the speaker gives a good grip. Cobtrols are accessible + & - workes pretty nice and by pressing both + & - you can check battery percentage and also you can check through Boom app on IOS and Android smartphobes. 3 buttons on top of the speaker, middle one is to easily sync playslist and play, pause and 2 presses to skip track and one side for power and other one for BT. Boom 3 promises to deliver 360 sound which very obvious when music is playing. Water proof and has floats when being sinking. Sound qulaity is as excellent as others out there in the market “high end speakers” ipI played classical, pop and alternative rock and it got impressed!
Long lasting battery sounds good. I wish it had a little more bass.

It’s very pleasing to see many of the reviews fit with how I feel about this speaker. My initial thoughts were positive. The feel is sturdy, durable and feels heavy duty. The speaker has an excellent sound out of the box and was very easy to connect to my phone. In no time I was listening to some of my favorite songs.
Great battery life (15+ hours)
Connectivity is about 100 feet
Can pair up to 4 devices
Long USB charging cord
Overall, these speakers are perfect on the go. I like the positioning of the volume control (plus/minus). Those symbols are placed cleverly. I’ve taken them hiking and also to the beach and they held up great at both locations. If you’re looking to get an amazing portable speaker with excellent sound, then these are for you.
This is easily my favorite portable speaker I have. I highly recommend!
My kids love this new speaker. It has incredible sound with deep bass good for listening to any music. Very easy to connect to any Bluetooth. We did not encounter any issue. It is excellent that this speaker is waterproof since my teens will be using it a lot. I don’t plan to use this speaker near a pool, but sometimes it gets used in the bathroom where water or liquids may splash.
The speaker has a hard casing but with a coat of rubber-like material with will help in getting a firm grip on the device when transporting. The size and weight are perfect to carry around. The battery life is excellent and will last for hours before needing a recharge.
To conclude, my entire house loves this new speaker, and I would recommend it because of its excellent sound, this to any home.
First and foremost, I love this speaker!
Logitech's new line of Ultimate Ears doesn't disappoint. I've tried several bluetooth speakers that are waterproof, but this one is only the second one I've found that combines waterproofing design with awesome, fully realized sound.
Right out of the box, the BOOM 3 is about the same size as my Echo Tap - maybe slightly bigger. Like the Echo Tap, the BOOM 3 can be charged by the supplied micro-USB cable or, as an extra purchase, Logitech's charging puck base. I held off on buying the charging base until I was sure that this speaker would be a keeper, but now it looks like it'll have to get added to my shopping list.
In terms of design, there's a micro-USB charging port on the back, and the top has 2 buttons: The power button and the magic button. Admittedly, I thought the magic button was more of a gimmick than feature, but I've come to love using it. A quick press pauses and plays, a double-tap skips to the next song in your queue, and a long hold will move to the next playlist. I'll get to that last part below in the companion app part.
The setup was quick and painless - and while I usually complain about having to download companion apps (because they tend to be bloatware), the Logitech BOOM app has something that I sorely missed in other speakers: a customizable equalizer!
Part of the setup process included adding up to 4 playlists to the BOOM's quick play feature. Using the magic button, you can long-press and skip from playlist to playlist. Just to be clear - this isn't storing music on the speaker itself, there's not a hard drive or anything. It's playing the music from your paired phone.
In terms of battery, I've used this thing for several days at an hour or two at a time and haven't worn it down. I decided to give this thing a test and use it in the shower and it blew me away! Using the equalizer option for "enclosed space", I can jam out in the shower to my kind of music without making the entire house listen in as well.
Make no mistake - this thing easily kicks out the noise! You crank it up high enough and it'll get plenty loud.
The only reason I rated this item as 4 stars was due to the lack of an Aux input - not a huge deal breaker, but would've certainly made this thing a home run in my book.
The BOOM is priced around $150 - which is in line with more full-feature devices, like the ones from Sony. It's definitely not the cheapest speaker out there, but I've come to expect a certain level of quality from Logitech and the BOOM 3 is another solid product.
A:AnswerYup. They are all the same except color. If there is a specific color you wanted that is more expensive than the others, I would recommend looking for the color in a different store and using Bestbuy’s price match to get it in store if you wanted it soon
