      The Best Speaker for Any Activity from Crazy to Dull

I thought, 'A bigger br When I first saw the UE Megaboom, I knew I had to have it. I had heard the UE Boom play, and knew of the great reviews that product had. I thought, 'A bigger brother to the Boom has to be bette rin every way,' and I was right in thinking this. Everything from the packaging that encases the speaker, the neon coloured cable and adapter, and the build and feel of the speaker itself screams quality. These are all simple but elegant. When showing the speaker to my friends, they all compliment the aesthetics of the product, saying how beautiful it is and how great it blends into wherever I have it. That is something that is great about the Megaboom. No matter where you have it or what you are using it for, it will not disappoint. I brought this skiing, and it rocked the slopes. I had it beside my hot tub, and it served to bring the party alive. Somebody accident;y knocked it into the water when it was playing, but I had no fears. The IPX7 waterproof rating held strong, as I took the speaker from the water, and it continued to play the EDM track like nothing had happened. After using the speaker in my car, I brought it inside still playing music. I had it in my room, on the second floor, and wanting to change the song realized that my phone was still in the car! This proves the strength of the bluetooth range offered by this device. Any track from EDM to acoustic covers, classical piano to rock, will sound fantastic for the average user. I say average user because if you are a true audiophile you will hear the small issues in the high and low ends, but overall for somebody wanting a loud portable speaker with 360 degree sound (you can have this in the middle of a room and have the same sound experience no matter where you are standing around it), this is the party accessory for you. The one thing I would ask UE to do is make it a bit less expensive, so that I don't have to drop the inevitable $300 more for a second to take advantage of the Double-Up feature offered through the app. Based on my experience with this speaker, I will definitely be purchasing a second in the near future so that I can double the amount of Megaboom I can get from this speaker.

I didn't get a chance to test before buying but was relieved that the low end wasn't overly boomy but yet nice and punchy so decent for all genres of music! Again, given its size and price, it's an amazing unit and extremely versatile! Highly recommended!

      Gr8 Sound

      I bought the Megaboom to replace my Beats Pill XL. I had to return it because of the recall. The Megaboom is a gr8 replacement. The only thing you give up is a I bought the Megaboom to replace my Beats Pill XL. I had to return it because of the recall. The Megaboom is a gr8 replacement. The only thing you give up is a little bit of the bass. But honestly it depends on the track you r playing. There are other things it beats the Beats on. The app is pretty kool. Equalizer is so so. But to have the water resistance and smaller size makes up for the bit of bass you give up. I have had it for about a week and have not regretted the switch. Also, when traveling it is much more convenient to put in my carry on.

      Not the Ultimate Ultimate Ears!

      I bought two of these to make a stereo pair and discovered that they are great sounding speakers with a nice flat-ish frequency response. The reliance on the ap I bought two of these to make a stereo pair and discovered that they are great sounding speakers with a nice flat-ish frequency response. The reliance on the app is one of the weaknesses for example the music alarm never plays what you tell it to, the party-up feature which is used for stereo pairing seems to be barely tested; setting up the stereo pair is easy but when the second speaker is not available you are left with a speaker which only plays one audio channel and if you don't have the other speaker handy to pair and switch to double-up there is no alternative but to factory reset the speaker to get full audio back. The worst thing though is interacting with Siri or making voice calls as the built in microphones are of dreadful quality. Just after the one year warranty period one of my MEGABOOM's microphones failed and I discovered that this unit cannot realistically be repaired as the speaker is glued together thoroughly and shockingly when I did get the waterproof speaker opened I found corrosion! With over dependence on a flawed app, constant alpha quality firmware updates and dreadful customer support my advice is not to buy this but I still recommend Ultimate Ears; the much cheaper WONDERBOOM which if anything sounds livelier, is much more portable and genuinely waterproof. Nice work Ultimate Ears, it's a shame about this one though.

      Awesome sound, range and battery.

      Best portable speaker I've bought. The bluetooth doesn't cut out because of walls or obstructions. The sound is so clear and the bass is perfect. I've had this Best portable speaker I've bought. The bluetooth doesn't cut out because of walls or obstructions. The sound is so clear and the bass is perfect. I've had this speaker to top volume twice and it is so loud. At top volume though it doesn't sound totally clear, but nothing worth complaining about. It's waterproof! Winning. Definitely worth the money.
