Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker : My Megaboom

Great sound, nearly all the frequencies are there and nicely balanced. The sound only falters at super high volumes, but if you keep it below these levels (still plenty loud enough) you will be most impressed with the sound from these. Battery life is great, you won’t get 20 hours if you’re pushing them hard, maybe 8 or 9, but that’s still pretty good. And best of all they come with a no-quibble 2 year warranty. Mine developed a charging fault where it wouldn’t accept charge, a known issue on early models, but they sent a new one out very quickly, didn’t even want the old one back. Great purchase, mate of mine has two and i might do the same one day. Can’t go wrong with these, awesome speakers.

Bought two ue boom 2’s two years ago and still absolutely love them. Sound quality and battery life are still as good as the day i got them. Now with the megaboom at £89 i had to buy two of these (even though i only needed one). I cannot believe just how good these speakers are.In house i can connect them both to my turntable via 3. 5mm jack and splitter and use them as a soundbar for the tv using the same method from the earphone out. Summer bbq’s i have one in the kitchen, one in the living room, one in the conservatory and one in the garden. All link perfectly through the app with no drop out thanks to the great bluetooth range. I don’t see the need for the alexa addition to the new model as i always control my music through my phone or tablet which are usually in easier reach than the speakers. I cannot recommend these enough.

Works well indoors but better outdoors. Can also pair with other ue speakers and the remote app is genuinely useful (turn speaker on/off and fiddle with the equaliser settings). Goes surprisingly loud but bass can tail off.

£89 for the quality this speaker offers is great. I bought jbl charge 3 before and was so dissapointed with its miffled sound it went straight back. Considered new version of megaboom but i dont care about dust proofing, usb at side so saved a fortune and bought this one. Sounds brilliant and i am really pleased with it. Jbl looks quite cool but the sound is dreadfull in comparison. If you are considering both, buy this.

  • Exceptional !
  • Wow! This was the bargain of the year!
  • For the three months I was away the speaker was really great, very loud

As far as bluetooth speakers go this isn’t bad. It’s very versatile and rigid. The sound is pretty decent and gets loud. It’s no hifi equivalent but it’s not meant to be. Bluetooth coverage is really good as well. I would recommend this product for every day listening.

I have two of these now and i think they’re amazing. One can fill a large garden alone but paired up you can either get a stereo sound or get them both playing mono, they perform well either way. The battery life is amazing, can last for a full days bbq’ing. Every time someone sees them for the first time they want to know more about them. Expensive but totally worth it, especially if you can catch them when they’re under £150.

My expectations for the ue megaboom 1 was set high having listened to the ue boom 1 in various settings, from small rooms to outdoor parks. Sadly, the megaboom did not meet my expectations for its price. The flat sound stood out the most with a very weak bass. Powerful mid range exceeded the low and high ranges, affecting the overall sound quality. Taking into account the different genre’s of music, equaliser settings (for the speaker) and spotify’s equaliser and sound quality- the speaker was not able to create the dynamic atmosphere that i was looking for. I will be returning the product in search for a speaker more set to my specifications. Other than the sound quality, i was not able to fully test the battery life, however, the high quality materials used on the product ensures significant durability and a sturdy build.

I love this speaker, it has great sound at low and high volume, so easy to use, the battery lasts for ages (i was playing it in my car for 5 hours at 50% charge and it didnt go down to 40%). The only minor complaint is that once it is charged, it doesnt hold the charge as well as i would like, nothing major, but it does lose a significant amount of power over a week or 2. But i read the reviews of this, some people complained about the charger cable not working, not had any issues there with mine. I was originally thinking of buying a bose soundlink as my mum has one and i really liked the sound from it, i dont notice any difference between her speaker and this, its very good.

Battery is great and the speaker is extremely well built so can just be thrown in a bag. One critisism is the software and widespread battery problems which seem to be fixed with software updates.

This is only my first impressions but this is amazing it sounds great and the bass did surprise me. The battery lasts around 17 hours at 50% volume which is very good. I am overall impressed with this speaker especially for 89 pounds can’t fault it.

This year i have bought 2 things that i consider value for money, the 1st being spotify and this is the second , it’s packaged beautify and comes with a luminous yellow charge cable. At first i thought it was broken until i downloaded the app to go with it then i was amazed by how loud and bassey it was. The sound fills my house i’m astounded at how well it performs and how crisp the sound is and the build quality is brilliant it’s heavy and nothing feels flimsy about it the buttons are easy to use i will admit it took me a minute to find the volume buttons but once linked to my phone it was a doddle to use. I cannot recommend this speaker enough the battery lasted from full charge for just over 16hours which is plenty , as for being waterproof i don’t intend on getting it wet but i will take the manufacturers word for it as everything they claim it does it has excelled at. If you’re looking for a decent wireless speaker buy one you won’t be disappointed.

Bought this is as a gift for my property developing parents who are often outside with work so needed something with great sound and waterproofing. Bought this after hearing a friends ue boom at a party and being blown away at the sound quality and volume from such a little device. Great charge on battery, looks slick with the maclaren designing and just as good as it’s boom counterpart.Easy to use, haven’t had a call from the parents on how to use new tech10/10 would recommend.

I bought this for going to bbq contests, i like music in my cook area but need something durable and water proof, preferrably with a bit of poke too. The megaboom is great, it sounds generally fab for a portable speaker. Ok it’s a bit lacking in bass for my taste, but it does well for it’s size. In terms of audio clarity for my needs though, i love it. Added bonus of being waterproof, thus i can clean it and all-day battery life for when we are at events with unreliable power. So much so, i’m going to buy a second so that i can run a stereo pair.

Sound better than expected, battery life better than expected looks better than expected. Did not test the water resistance. Box that comes with it is poorly made only thing they could improve, also the app could have battery percentage and time remaining for the battery depletion.

This is the most expensive speaker i’ve ever bought. I love this speaker, from the look of it to the sound it is really nice. The app is a really nice touch giving the ability to turn the speaker on and off and change equalizers. This speaker fills up my (large) kitchen with loud sound. I can hear music even on the other end of the house clearly. This thing also *feels* tough, like it would take some work to damage or break it. It’s also much lighter than i expected but still has a good heft to itvery good buy i am really happy with my purchase.

I bought this speaker before summer 2017. For the three months i was away the speaker was really great, very loud, had a long battery life, resisted any water it came into contact with well and did not take long to charge. However as soon as i got home, in mid september it stopped working. I googled the problem and many others seem to have the same issue. No matter how long i charged it for it would say ‘low charge’ or make a sad beeping sound. Eventually i got it to work once or twice at random after charging it for hours, keeping it plugged in charging and pressing buttons at the same time while trying again and again to connect it with my phone. It won’t work at all if it isn’t charging which defeats the purpose of a long battery life as i can’t bring it places. Now that it’s coming up to summer once more i would really like to use it again, and i am quite disappointed after spending a fair amount of money on this item that it didn’t really last long enough at all and isn’t working now. I enjoyed it while it lasted but it really did not work for a long enough time at all so for that reason i am disappointed in the product and will be looking to other brands in the future when purchasing portable speakers.

Managed to get this for £85 . Bought this as a gift for my 16 year old brother as i am crazy over him haha. He could easily tell the difference in sound and quality.The colours are great, especially coz blue and orange have a special meaning between me and my brother so it was just so perfect in every way . He couldn’t stop thanking me. And i can’t stop thanking ue for this wonderful speaker .

Awesome sound,ended up purchasing two to pair up through the app (panther and red white mclaren). Bass signature is great but lacks slightly compared to say the bose soundlink mini 2 but overall an excellent balanced sound and the trade off between portability,durability,pairing,battery life is well worth it. So far i have encountered no issues with battery problems. Perfect for holidays,poolside,beach,bbq’s etc especially with two paired together. Couldn’t be happier & i am seriously considering adding a couple more whilst they’re cheap.

Awesome, piece of equipment. I am a bit of audio freek and like good quality music. The megaboom is absolutely fantastic, from the design to the actual sound quality ultimate ears have certainly done a good job. The design is very robust and that is good because i do not have to worry about it getting damaged or wet. The sound quality for exceeded my expectations along with the volume (for a portable speaker this is very loud). The battery is very good as well. I have been using the speaker for around 4-5 hours most days and i only charge it every few days. I would highly recommend this speaker to anyone.

I got this for £100 on the black friday sale. I replaced my speaker system with this after it broke down. It takes up very little space and portable when need be – which is exactly what i need. I don’t worry about throwing it in the bag – it’s durable and i never ran out of battery (for my casual use) good enough for me. It is loud enough to be used in pubs/loud environments when my phone speakers fail. However, it is quite heavy and big though so may not be the most portable solution you’re looking for. I would double-check the weight and the dimensions. I was surprised when i first held it in my hands.

Love this bluetooth speaker, love amazon. The original purchase was faulty, amazon replaced it before i could pack and return the original. Leans towards the bass end of the eq spectrum which can be tamed by the user app. I’m not complaining, it’s just an onservation.

I bought this so that i could pair it (party up) with my smaller boom3 but when i paired my phone i noticed that the megoboom was much quieter than the smaller boom2 (even on full volume) i will admit the bass is more noticeable on the mega boom. But it’s far from impressive. I’m very happy with the build quality. When used over nye the speaker did last all night. (which it should considering it boasts something like a 20 hour battery life) but the next morning i checked the battery life and it reported 1% whilst the boom3 was on 60%this leaves me slightly disappointed with my purchase but it was at a good price and works.

Ultimate Ears ROLL 2 Bluetooth Speaker Ultraportable : Brilliant!

I love this speaker, it is easy to use and looks great. I use it for spa music when doing massage treatments and it never fails. Battery life is very good and it connects to devices easily. The sound is of very good quality and so is the body of the product. Always a must when having people over for a bbq or a few drinks.

So easy to set up – ready to go right out of the package, paired with my laptop in seconds, and the sound fills the room. Absolutely love this little thing. It even comes with a floaty so you can use it.

So not one to write reviews, but this little beauty deserves it. I checked which reviews and this one had the highest rating of any protable / bluetooth speaker. This and the price tempted me to get one to try and wow. . Firstly the “setup” is ridiculously easy. I purchased other more expensive bluetooth speakers and had problems. I was so impressed with one that i bought a second as i saw the option to pair them both via the mobile app. It’s a double wow for the second one in ease of use in getting them paired up and the sound from both of them in the room is great.

We were going to buy a sound system for our boat, but instead we bought a 2nd eu roll to pair up for better stereo sound. They are neat, funky colours and portable & give very good sound, especially if placed on a wooden surface. It is so handy to just control all your music from your iphone. The eu app is great for adjusting balance & bass too. Once charged from the usb the battery lasts about 7 hours.

  • Excellent – if you don’t mind controlling music from your phone
  • Outstanding Speaker for Size and Price
  • LOVE IT !!!!!!!

    by entering your model number.
  • Stretchy, attachable marine-grade bungee: Strap the wireless speaker to your bike, backpack, kayak or wherever else you want to take your music
  • Waterproof: You can submerge UE ROLL 2 outdoor speaker in water, waterproof for up to 30 minutes and a depth of 1 m.Compatibility :Smartphones, tablets and other devices that support bluetooth wireless audio profile [Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)] or 3.5 mm audio output
  • Lighter than a can of soda: Ultra-portable speaker and so light you will forget you are even carrying it
  • Go farther: 100 feet wireless bluetooth speaker range and nine hour rechargeable battery life go as long as you can

The sound is good but there is no way to play or pause from the device, only to turn the volume up or down. For a device that is meant to allow you complete freedom from 100 metres away how annoying is it to then have to keep going back to your phone to change a track, pause or play.

Looking good and a really good sound in small to medium sized rooms. I tested it in our bigger living-room (open kitchen, 3. 5 meter high ceilings), and there i would need at least a second one for a good sound experience. Time until recharging battery is good.

Plenty of punch with the sound – and the graphic equaliser app lets you tweak to your hearts content. Some players have a better battery life, but this kept going for hours as i was decorating large areas of the house (about 7 hours non stop). Great – i just kept hooking it over the nearest door handle as i went. Picked up on it after a very favourable review on a certain hi-fi website – and they were quite correct. Most importantly, for a small speaker thingy, the sound quality is surprisingly good – the main reason for my purchase.

Bought this for 60 quid and for that money, this is a travel speaker without rival. Hooked up to my ipod classic (which does not have bluetooth) it gives decent high end detail and surprisingly good bass which maintains control. It’s a stunning piece of kit.

The sound is ok for medium volume but not good enough for higher volume (or a party). I would definitely go for a bigger boom speaker like the wonderboom or boom 2. However all booms have a bit off sound quality issues when it comes to trebles.

Ue roll 2 speakerheard on of these speakers while on holiday in canada, and thought wow . . The sound was amazing and so robust – perfect for outdoors. Once home i decided to order one. Saw a good offer on amazon warehouse deals – like new and thought go for it. . I returned the item within an hour of receipt. . Condition of what i was sent was an absolute disgrace. . As a long term customer, i was annoyed and will now not buy electronics via amazon warehouse deals again. . I then immediately ordered the speaker again at full price. And it is brilliant, so pleased i did.

After seeing all the positive reviews i. What hi-fi, i went with the speaker. The sound quality is superb and can get very loud, the battery life at 9hrs although may sound not as great compared to the ue boom 2 it will last the day which is all you need it to do. The design is rugged and durable with an ipx7 rating and a handy strap at the back with allows it to be strapped/hooked to pretty much anything. Although the app is pretty poor it has no effect on the speaker or its experience as you don’t even need to download it to start using. However the price of £70 cannot be fully justified and there are better options such as the jbl clip.

This is a great and versatile little speaker. It sounds excellent and clear and has so many nice features. I bought this for the purpose of listening to podcasts in a shower or music. The good thing about this particular speaker is that it’s clear. The spoken word comes out well and you get a surprising amount of detail when listening to music. I’m by no means an audiophile, but, i enjoy good sound. I actually think this sounds much better than the ue wonderboom. The ue wonderboom is too bass-y (some may love that) but the sound isn’t clear as a result. I also think it’s built well but this doesn’t deserve a full five 5 starts because of one huge flaw: you cannot control tracks.

Simply brilliant sound quality. Bought with a set of ue wonderbooms and ended up returning this roll 2 (because wonderbooms can pair each other but not with the roll 2). It didn’t feel right to return.

Great sounds quality – louder than i can ever see us needing, plays super quiet too which is handy, looks fantastic, but it is much heavier than anticipating. You can find out the charge by pressing both the plus and minus sound buttons which is nice.

Perfect: sound quality, look, construction, pairing. Only minus (but not worth removing a star) is that they should come with a travel pouch.

I still cannot believe the sound that comes from such a small device. The whole package has been thought out so that it is really easy to use all the features. I was so impressed with the first one i bought that i ordered another so that they could be linked together using the double up facility. Now i am lost for words to describe just how good they are. People that i show them to can’t believe what they are hearing either.

Amazing speaker, great for vacation or to have it in your shower. Would buy another to have stereo. Cons: can’t skip songs, only change volume.

Ok you’re not gonna get any amazing bassy tones simply due to the size of this thing but everything else about it is brilliant. I couldn’t believe how loud it can go for such a small device.

Was looking for a little portable speaker for our little gym. Also use it on my bike and rick sack. Really is a very good speaker. Easy to use and great sound for such a small thing.

Incredible sound from such a small and relatively cheap speaker. I bought this to use inside my shower cubicle and it doesn’t disappoint. Took seconds to pair and work out how to use it. If you want a speaker that allows you to skip tracks then this isn’t for you, but if you’ve got your playlists preset then what are you waiting for?.

I was supprised by the quality of sound coming from this. It’s little loop of string is more useful than you would first think. I mostly use this speaker whilst in the shower. I travel a lot for work and this speaker has put up with being trawled about in my suitcase for a couple of months at a time.

A great little speaker – i use it in the bathroom every day. It’s hung in the shower, but not in a place to get particularly wet, so i can’t judge it on that, but it’s robust and made of good quality materials, giving a good sound.

Ultimate Ears ROLL 2 Bluetooth Speaker Ultraportable, Sublime

Brilliant speaker and perfect sound quality. The remote control from my phone is ideal as i can turn it on it the bathroom from my bed in time for my shower. The only downside for me is this doesn’t link with the boom 2 and i thought it might after reading reviews.

Bought when my car speakers stopped working, was so handy in carextremely loud for the size off it, surprises everyone when i show them the size off speaker the sounds coming fromgreat build quality and survives drops well and spillages.

After much searching of the internet i settled on this. I wanted a bluetooth speaker, simples. Out of the box and set up in a couple of minutes ( it took longer to remove the wrapping , etc. Than to actually set the speaker up on my ipad. Sound wise – for a 5 inch round speaker it’s ludicrously good. Install the ipad app and you can set it up as alarm. Very happy with the purchase, very happy.

Bought this for my son to improve the audio from his phone & laptop. Surprised at how loud and clear the output is from such a small speaker. Feels quite robust, and i’m sure my son will test that quality over time. More expensive than some other speakers, but for the size, bluetooth range and sound quality it’s worth paying a bit more.

So not one to write reviews, but this little beauty deserves it. I checked which reviews and this one had the highest rating of any protable / bluetooth speaker.

Bought one for my daughter in august 2016 (23 months ago) it has been around the world with her. Australia, thailand, cambodia and new zealand and it still works perfectly. I asked her if she wanted a new one as she goes back to nz in a few weeks and she just asked ‘why?.Someone who doesn’t want something for free. So she loves her roll, it goes everywhere with her and works as perfectly today as the day she got it and it has done about 30,000 miles. . It has covered dozens of ad hoc parties that i’d rather not know about along with hiking, camping and long drives into the back of beyond. It just looks a little grubby, but that is hardly anybody else’s fault.

Easy to set up with a long battery life. Waterproof and practical with a sound which is way beyond my expectations- and i’m a hifi buffit’s fun and easy to use, great for the kitchen and on the boat.

Nothing i can say here that hasn’t already been said on hundreds of proffesional review websites and the many reviews here on amazon. All i’ll say is believe what you’ve heard, this speaker is fantastic. If you’re happy to spend this much and considering it, buy it.

Got it to listen to music at work when on down time. Its a loud environment but the speaker is loud enough that it can be heard if you are within 20 meters at least, maybe more but i didnt measure. The only downside is the battery life. I was under the impression you could get up to 10 hours, however after about 4 and a half it died. This was after a 10-12 hour overnight charge. Luckily you can still play it while it’s plugged in to the mains as long as it has a little juice in it to get it started so i did this, however myself or other may not always have access to socket so it might be worth picking up a cheap battery bank and keeping that along side it, which is what i may do if i find a decent waterproof one.

Easy to use and sync to your devices. Easy to charge and get decent life out of each charge. Utilised mostly in the shower and has taken well to being used in steamed up shower and to the occasional bit of water splash. It can be a pain to take over when someone else is using their device synced to it but aside from that i’d say its a good product. It can also be very loud and i don’t think i use even 40% of the volume capacity.

Bought two, one for each of my twenty something boys (no, they won’t leave the parental home). They use them when having a shower and getting ready to go out. The quality is great, i know because they have it blasting out, but good feedback from both guysas well. I got them at a discount price as well. I also got my soundbar back.

Honestly a little disappointed with it. When it works, it works great, however moving it around will cause some loosing signal at a certain distance. Getting it to connect to my computer and what is plays is also a little annoying as i have to close itunes and re-open it after connecting so that it’ll play what’s playing on itunes (this seems more of an itunes issue than the speaker though). It’s also annoying not to include a pause/skip/back buttons on the speaker too. Otherwise, it’s ok and the sound quality is decent though.

Good sound quality for the money, decent battery life as well so overall quite happy until it broke quite suddenly after about 15 months – it would still connect to phone via bluetooth but the sound level was very very quiet to the point of being almost silent, you could only hear it if you held it right up to your ear and even then it was almost impossible to hear. In fairness though, i contacted the manufacturer (logitech) who suggested resetting and also pairing to another phone and when neither of these worked they suggested i contact the reseller (amazon in this case) for a refund. Again, all credit is due to amazon customer service who immediately issued a refund (since the speaker is no longer sold by them). I’ve ordered a ue wonderboom for the same price and hoping it will last a little bit longer.

Originally bought one for each of my children and we were really impressed with both the volume produced by such a compact speaker and the quality of the sound. When my mother-in-law was visiting us recently she loved the sound and portability so much that we got one for her as well. So far no one has been brave enough to test the water resistance.

I love this speaker, it is easy to use and looks great. I use it for spa music when doing massage treatments and it never fails. Battery life is very good and it connects to devices easily. The sound is of very good quality and so is the body of the product. Always a must when having people over for a bbq or a few drinks.

Ultimate Ears Blast Bluetooth Speaker – Excellent speaker – Alexa and associated s/w a little disappointing

Tried the speaker for a few days, doesn’t live up to expectations, battery life is short, sound quality is average, was expecting better product. Will try to return it and maybe go for a different brand.

This is perhaps one of the best portable speakers i’ve used in terms of build quality, connectivity and sound quality (for its size). It features lots of connectivity options including bluetooth and wi-fi. The built-in amazon alexa works very well, although it’s very slightly slower at responding compared to amazon’s own alexa speakers – this is the speaker that actually introduced me to the amazing world of alexa and the sole reason i now have 1 echo spot and 3 echo dots. I initially disregarded voice control as a gimmick but didn’t realise how useful it would especially for home automation such as controlling lights with lightwave rf and controlling the heating with tado. Sound quality is excellent for the size of the speaker. It’s crisp and clear with a decent amount of bass (just don’t expect it to shake anything). It can go extremely loud without any distortion, outperforming every speaker i’ve tried (of a similar size). This isn’t the most lightweight speaker you’ll find but the build quality is exceptional and seems like it will withstand heavy abuse. It’s also completely waterproof so it’s perfect for using in the shower, bath, hot tub or pool. Battery life is very good at 12 hours – long enough to not have to worry about charging it.

Ue booms are far superior to any other speaker i have had, the quality is out of this world puts dr dre to shame and the more expensive boos and the likes.

My nephew took one of these speakers (without alexa) on holiday with us – and we were all blown away with the sound around the pool. I bought this one with alexa to use in the bathroom so i could skip through songs and change playlists without having to touch it while showering or in bath. When it connects with wifi, so i’m guessing anything you ask alexa to do – it constantly drops playback – sometimes it will resume – almost as though it is buffering. Sometimes it wont – it just stops like it forget what it was doing. This is the same with spotify, or tunein radio stations. The help says move your router – isolate it from electrical interference – but i must have 20 things in this house using the wifi – and this is the only thing that has connection problems. Anyway using through bluetooth seems to be fine – and it was less than £100 in the sale – so i am keeping it – hopefully ue will do something with firmware or software and sort it out.

Sound is fantastic, alexa so easy, use app on phone too.

Very versatile and excellent sound. Very high quality for the price.

  • Love it. Great size and sound quality is good
  • Sounds great – Wifi and/or Alexa isn’t
  • Sounds great, solidly built

At the standard price, this is expensive; but bought at a discount then is a very good buy. Sound quality & volume is excellent, and omnidirectional, so ideal for outdoor use. Being waterproof is also a bonusyou need to be in the alexa camp to make the most of it though, although it can be used as a normal bluetooth speaker if notthe alexa experience is not quite up to echo standard, but acceptable; and, given a strong wi-fi signal, can work in the some distance away from the houseif you don’t want to fiddle with charging the speaker with a micro usb socket (hidden beneath the rubber base plug), i would recommend the optional charging dock; but it is way too expensive at £35, (and really should be included as standard. )shop around – currys had a half price offer on recently.

Bought a ue blast as was reduced on amazon prime day and liked how could stream spotify onto it without having to use phone or tablet so great to use in garden and generally round the house without having to mess around with plugging it in as rechargeable. Unfortunately the first one i had lasted only about a week before it started to play up – won’t connect to wi-fi and kept dropping out on bluetooth before it finally would only power up for brief time before shutting off again. Amazon were great – organised replacement that arrived next day. Unfortunately the replacement lasted less than a day before it died completely, won’t power up even when plugged into the charger so amazon are refunding it now which is a shame. Considering the rest of logitech’s build quality – i have g series keyboard and mouse now as well as harmony remote and well as in the past and all have been excellent in terms of reliability it’s a shame that their ultimate ears stuff doesn’t seem to be able to last. Will have to look into some other portable speaker instead.

I bought this primarily to provide good quality sound for my mobile devices (phone and tablet). For this task, it works very well and sound quality is great. However, documentation for connecting to wifi was not brilliant and it took some time to resolve. I tried using ipad, iphone, laptop running ubuntu and finally had to reboot an old laptop running win 7 before the s/w worked. The original unit stopped working after a few days. It kept turning itself off despite being housed on the charging unit – so therefore not an obvious loss of power. This was resolved by amazon’s excellent returns system. A new speaker arrived 2 days after i had an online chat with amazon customer services. ***** for amazon cust servsall seems ok now apart from alexa has a tendency to drop the wifi connection when playing direct through the internet. I resolve this by connecting via tablet or phone rather than directly using alexa.

The main concern people have with this speaker is the ultimate ears app, which is not very good. However you only need to use the app for initial setup, which i found to be quick and straightforward. After that you can control the alexa functions using amazon’s alexa app. This allows you to learn about new skills, change your preferences, and so on. I use amazon prime music, so found it easy to play stuff from my library. Once the speaker is set up, alexa works very well on this. I find the microphone picks up male voices better than female, and you have to yell a bit if you want it to hear you while it is playing music. But as it learns your voice, it gets better. It responds to commands quite quickly, and i have had no problems with the software, or the wifi connectivity. The speaker itself is excellent- which is just as well considering the price.

I like the sound quality and the fact it fills a room. I purchased this for being a good quality bluetooth speaker with added amazon alexa and on that basis its great. It can connect to the amazon tv thingy and easily connects to my mobile phone (i have downloaded the devices app think that helps a lot). The only negative for me is its in the kitchen and sometimes it seems to have difficulty reaching the house wifi signal where our mobile phones or other devices have no problem in the same spot. However i know where to position it so this is not an issue, but it might be for some. My annoyance with amazon is that its alexa software should connect to a spotify free account and not just a paid account. However alexa does connect to tunein radio which is great.

Just ask for a selection from an artist or era and it plays as well as repeating your favourites. It goes around the house with me and we now have a carrier so we can take it on holiday with us.

Very nice and neat, love the fact i don’t need my phone around the house to play music any more. Although wish it had a sim car to use data when i was out and about but never mind. Excellant speaker for only £99.

Great life proof bluetooth speaker with decent battery life. Sounds amazing and goes very loud.

Great speaker lovely deep bass sound guality great , i’ve been using it in the garden for several weeks. I love it alexa players all the music i want. I wanted a rugged speaker as we have two large dog ,chances of it being knocked over are high ,plus we have a lot of water in the garden with 2 ponds and a large paddling pool for the dogs to play in. So loving the fact it’s waterproof.

Good sound quality and work really good whit i builded alexa.

Ultimate Sound: Ultimate Ears most powerful speaker with 360 degrees intensely rich sound, elegant clarity and heart-pounding bass; with up to 12 hours of battery, it brings your music to life wherever you take it

I am familiar with the boom 2 already and i would say this is a refined version with the added benefit of alexa voice control.

Setup was great if not perfectly straightforward. However on looking closer the ue blast shipped without a bottom cap so the micro usb port is exposed to water which means it won’t be fully waterproof. This is seriously dissapointing as i was just starting to enjoy using alexa with spotify but now i’m going to have to return the device.

I prefer the wonderboom – this one cuts out a lot.

If you like alexa you will love this speaker. I got already alexa at home but the fact that this speaker has alexa built in is just amazing, you can now bring alexa on holidays with you without limits considering that the speaker is powered by battery and also waterproof. You will never need your phone again to play music cause the speaker will connect straight to the wifi and play the music from your favorite music provider such as spotify. (no more music interruption if somebody call you on your phone while music is playing). I’ve also notice since i’ve purchased the device that they integrated new funcions in the system such as spotify music and they also fixed some small bugs, this means that they are always improving the software. Really like this speakerno blast no party.

Whilst the sound and volume are really good, it constantly disconnects from bluetooth and no matter what ive tried to do, i cant get it to keep a sustained connection.

Excellent sound and battery life well worth the buy.

With Amazon Alexa hands-free voice control: Just ask Alexa to blast tunes from Amazon music*, Spotify or* TuneIn, change tracks, check the weather or try any of Alexa’s skills

Got this for teenager for christmas. Absolutely loves it, purchased amazon prime also so she can use prime music through the ultimate ears blast. Cannot keep her off it, music playing all the time, even in bathroom as it’s waterproof. Really sturdy and strong looking. Sound is amazing and cannot believe how loud it will go. Had no issues in setting up. Did lots of research before buying this.

Excellent design, sound quality was exceptional. Looked white on amazon pics. Similar colour to a school eraser. It looks as though it would get dirty easier than one of the other colours esp. If you use it as supposed to be. Returned reordered the speaker in blue.

I really like my blast speakers the only problem i have is that the battery doesn’t last for long.

I am rating this four stars because of sound quality. The size and weight are what i expected. The volume can go up really high. The quality and depth of sound is adequate and it’ll be fine for the holidays we have this year, in a cottage, on the beach, etc. But it’s far from hi fidelity. The alexa support is actually quite good and did what i expected (i also have echo products) so i’m not sure what other reviewers expected. Lovely product design and easy to use, hold, carry around, and charge.

Absolutely brilliant, bought as a gift for my wife.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled: Use the Alexa voice service at home or on the go whenever connected to Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot or stream music via Bluetooth from your phone.

Waterproof and virtually indestructible: Never worry about going easy on it, your music will always be on point; the speaker is IP67 rated and can be immersed in water up to 1 m for 30 minutes

Ultimate Ears Megablast Bluetooth Speaker, Great value portable speaker

Took me a wee while to decide on what speaker to buy, but not disappointed with my purchase, absolute fantastic speaker, no complaints at all.

Such a meaty little speaker. I also tried the megaboom, but it was too tinny for my kind of music, i like a lot of bass and although this one is bigger and heavier it’s perfect sound quality = loud.

I’ve only used it a bit, so can’t talk about much beyond the sound and performance. For what it is, a portable speaker, the sound is impressive. I’ve compared it to a couple other, older more expensive speakers, and it stands up well in terms of sound and cost much less. Portable is great, but to properly use it with alexa you’d need the expensive (£35) charging base, as it turns off if not used. For music on the move, or in the garden, as long as you have wifi it is just what you need.

Comments from buyers

“Awesome Bluetooth speaker but glitchy as an Echo device
, Really great speaker and ideal for a bathroom or en-suite
, Sensational! Everything an Echo Should have been and then some more!

This was my first bluetooth speaker and i’m really pleased with it. Alexa integration also works without any issues. Not sure why people have some many problems – mine had 0 issues. Since buying this, i have also bought beoplay a1 and beoplay m5, but the ue megablast remains my default go to speaker. Excellent battery life, superb sound, bluetooth and wi-fi. Managed to get this on black friday deal at £129. 99 and have used it almost every day.

When it turns itself off from being idol it will not sound your morning alarms, learned that the hard way, i think it’s another little scheme to get you to buy their charging dock, fantastic speaker anyhow no other problems.

It looks great, is simple to use, battery life brilliant and it sounds huge. The volume range covers more than i need for single room use. Sound quality is well above what i could have imagined including reassuring power, splendid bass and clarity across the frequency range. It goes well beyond a small mobile speaker trying to sound big – it belongs in the really good speaker that happens to be compact and mobile category. I haven’t tried alexa so cannot comment on that facility.

I’m quite sniffy about the quality of the sound that i get. It was £130, which i deemed good value. I don’t think it’s one to take on a business trip. But for my big bathroom, i can ask alexa to play anything from spotify, or play bbc radio 6. (late breaking news – my wife has nicked it for her bathroom, so i need another one.

Ultimate ears megablast bluetooth speaker, portable wi-fi/loud waterproof wireless speaker with amazon alexa voice control – bluei have never come across a speaker of that size that is so powerful and loud while also retaining amazing quality. I purchased this speaker the beginning of this year and i don’t think i have ever been as satisfied with speakers other than this one. When on full volume these speaker still manages to keep the quality and doesn’t distort in anyway. The speaker is rather heavy but it makes up for it in every other way. The alexa integration works really well and makes your life so much easier when wanting to find out a bit of information or just wanting the quickly listen a song without using your phone. I don’t have one fault with the speaker and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something loud, portable and of high quality.

This speaker produces very high quality sound for its size with a lovely bass for music and clear treble for speech. It has a small footprint so takes up little space and can be positioned virtually anywhere. The built in alexa works fine, as does the app. I bought from amazon at £129 which is a bargain considering the usual price. I have a bang and olufsen beolit 17 portable speaker costing nearly twice the price retail and although it cannot provide the all round power and bass of that larger speaker it nearly matches it in overall sound quality and beats it hands down in portability and versatility.

Fantastic fidelity and brilliant portability.

Dislike the alexa interface. Have to talk loud and clear for it to understand. Not as good as the proper echo’s. Frustratingly keeps losing internet connection. Have updated but still does it. Sound is fantastic so top mark’s there.

I already have one of these and this was supposed to be the second one. Unfortunately i found out the hard way that these speakers aren’t compatible with the party up feature. I believe it’s something to do with it having alexa. Why can’t you just disable alexa whilst in party up mode?.Or just have one microphone enabled?. Logitech sort yourselves out. On its own it’s an amazing speaker.

This speaker was an excellent purchase. The sound quality is unparalleled and it easily fills any room without needing to be turned up too much. The built in alexa is a great added bonus and makes for easy control of the speaker while at home. I couldn’t be happier with this product, would recommend to anyone willing to throw in the extra cash.

I love the family of ultimate ears bluetooth speakers. I bought the biggest ‘megablast’ thinking it would be louder and bassier than the slightly smaller ‘megaboom’ but to be honest i’ve been more impressed with the sound from my friend’s megaboom. I’m pretty annoyed by the really flakey ‘spotify connect’ functionality which i was assured had been implemented into this model of speaker. It drops out from time to time and often isn’t appearing in my spotify device list despite both my phone and the speaker being on the same network.

Lets split this into 2 parts. Oh and i’ve only had the speaker 2 days. Part 1 – as a bluetooth speaker i give it 5 stars. The sound is awesome, set up is simple (with the app) and i love it. Not really pushed it to its limits yet, but the bass is good and whether i am listening to music, talk radio or as the audio for a recording on my phone it sounds fab. Controls easy to use, speaker very portable, sure it’s a tad on the heavy side but i find that just adds to the ‘quality’ feel of the device. Now as an echo device, so far my impressions are not great. I have the original echo, about 2 years now so i am familiar with it, and so far the megablast is not a patch on it. It seems to struggle with basic commands, for instance this morning i was listening to absolute 80’s (don’t judge me) and when i told it to stop the response was ‘sorry something went wrong’ and it carried on playing.

I got this for christmas, i particularly wanted this model ‘the megablast’ becuase of the bluetooth and wifi with alexa. So i could take it away in our campervan. Hopefully pairing it to my iphone and using alexa on the road wherever we go. Use it outside the van for listening to our music and movies we watch. Having bought many different high quality speakers over the years. This lives up to its reputation. Clear, precise and detailed with a solid bass.

Upgraded from my ue boom 2 and the bass quality is second to none. Highly recommend just go for it if you’re unsure.

Lacks basic controls like play/pause physical button. No speaker phone not an issue for me as i don’t use speakers for calls. Spotify and amazon music is flawless. Music control is also either through phone spotify as remote or alexa commands.

So today i received my ultimate ears megablast. As a bit of context i should mention i am also the proud owner of an amazon echo 1st gen and a ultimate ears boom 2. The main difference between an echo and a megablast is the fact that an echo is more of a voice control hub that also happens to have an integrated speaker, the megablast is a high quality speaker that also happens to have alexa voice control in it. The key thing here is if you intend on listening to a lot of music (anywhere you want to go) then in my humble opinion the megablast operates in a whole different league of greatness. Before i received this i had my echo in my living room and the boom 2 in my office. Main reason for getting the megablast is because i never really rated the sound of my echo for music playback so i have been waiting for something capable of doing all the alexa stuff but most importantly with the sound quality of a purpose built audio device. As this is going to sit mainly in my living room i didn’t want to go down the echo dot plugged into a speaker route as it looks a little ugly to be on show. To start with the positives:first and foremoust, the sound quality is immense, significantly more ‘oomph’ than my boom 2, it sounds a lot bassier and warmer to listen to. The thing that jumped out more than anything is how crystal clear the mid and high top notes are. At 100% there was no reduction in sound quality, just very very loud.

I already have amazon echo so good to compare. The echo has very average sound but the alexa is very responsive. I mainly listen to the radio with alexa. I wanted a better portable speaker and the megablast seemed best option and value for money. The sound is definitely a huge step up better bass and overall sound. However the alexa is not quite as responsive. Sound was my priority however so i am happy and it is very durable and portable. The alexa is an added benefit. For serious listening i have a separates system that i use which can be beaten. Decide what your priority is.

Works perfect, sounds good, but bass is not strongest side of megablast. Install app and received updates since realese with more features. There are 2 adapters: uk and europe, very good for traveling. Keep in touch with updates, hope soon spotify and other speaker features like equilizer and etc.

Really great speaker and ideal for a bathroom or en-suite. I have a first gen alexa & alexa pro & a do, and now this kiddy in the ensuite. The sound is surprisingly rich and full and covers all ranges very well. You will need the power up charging dock for always-on alexa which i managed to sort. You can play and stream most services via wifi or bluetooth (spotify hopefully will be able to stream on wifi soon with updates but at the mo, on bluetooth. I’ve been using the speaker a couple of weeks now and i’m very pleased and it’s turning out to be a worthwhile investment.

Very good sound – especially when played at louder volume, but it does have some constraints when comparing to the amazon echo itself which i previously had on my desk (before the ue arrived). For example:- the ue device is either turned on or off, so if you user the timer or alarm options on the echo they will only work if you have the unit turned on (it tends to power itself off after 15 minutes if it is not playing – which makes sense as a rechargeable device). This can be a little annoying as i used to get the echo to set a reminder for key conference calls (as the outlook reminder usually gets hidden at the bottom), so it means i have to remember to have the ue on at the time i have these alarms to ‘ring’. The echo didn’t have this problem as it was always powered on in the background even when you’re not using it. – the ue doesn’t always get what you are saying and tells you it is having difficulty, but this can be a little annoying when you are just trying to get it to pause whilst you take a call. I don’t think i have quite so many issues with the echo understanding/acting on simple commands. – the sound is good, but is best quality when it is on a louder setting – i’m not sure i am getting best value from it just using it at my desk, the echo i used previoulsy was fine at the volume levels i tend to use whilst at my desk (that one has now moved upstairs). In summary the ue megablast is good quality, a great looking device (i’ve got the red one) and looking forward to taking it outside with me in the summer, but i think it is horses for courses and the echo i originally bought for my desk would have sufficed. We already have a number of echo-dots around the house ‘plumbed’ in to other devices to improve their sound quality e. By bluetooth into the stereo in the kitchen, same again in the lounge into our amp etc. So there is no real need to carry the ue around from room to room unless i am moving about a lot and don’t want to keep turning devices on around the house as i go. Although there are other options to do this – which my husband has now implemented using a harmony hub etc. For someone who initially didn’t want an echo/dot he’s certainly bought a few and using them to control all sorts of appliances – turning on the tv/amp/sky box before you get to the lounge, turning on lamps in other rooms before you get there etc.

The sound quality is just fantastic – brilliant bass and punchy power. It’s well-built and good looking too. I was looking for a bluetooth speaker but i’ve ended up using the smart functionality more, which i wasn’t expecting (alexa is sometimes glitchy though). Battery life could be a lot better. I only get around half what they say at 50% volume. After doing a lot of research i bought this instead of the megaboom 3 as it’s better value (and the flagship product in the ue range) and i have no regrets.

Ultimate Ears, WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker, Waterproof Speaker with Double-Up Connection, 10-Hour Battery Life, Clear, Crisp, Elegant Bass, Immersive Sound, Patches – Amazing little speaker

I was well pleased with the sound of this. I think the sound is very good. My only negative is that because i use it for sleepsounds/music when falling asleep the lowest volume is still a bit too loud. Also the on/off sound it makes is stupidly loud and when the music has stopped and the speaker eventually turn itself off it wakes me up quite violently. However for daytime listening whilst getting ready and putting makeup on, as well as listening in the bath, it is really great.

I’ve bought bluetooth speakers before and always gone for small portable units and the sound quality and battery life seem to have always reflected the sizethis wonderboom is in a different league. I have no idea how they get so much rich deep reverberant and (if you want) loud sound from such a small unit. I love the design, the small size and the battery life. I love the fact that you can have more than one device registered to the bluetooth connection, so either i or my partner can just start playing music without having to change anything. I haven’t tested the waterproofing or shock proofing but both specs would indicate this is an ideal speaker to take with you outdoors or in the wet. My only negatives would be that it’s not quite so good at very low volumes (eg background music whilst reading)well worth the price.

I tested this against the anker soundcore motion q – similar size and power, but £20 cheaper than the wonderboom. I tested them side by side to get a true comparison. The result: the wonderboom lives up to its name. Deeper bass, brighter treble, more presence, detail and sparkle. By comparison, the motion q was flatter and a bit muddier. Just not as lively and without the bass depth of the wonderboom. In this case, you get what you pay for. But if you’re willing to pay a little extra for the wonderboom, you get the jump in performance. It won’t shake your fillings out, but for its size (slightly stubbier than a can of soup) the bass has plenty of oomph.

The best portable speaker i’ve ever owned. It’s not cheap, but it sounds amazing. Deep clear bass and genuine encompassing sound field. It’s plenty loud enough for most occasions. It’s not that small, or light so it’s possibly not suited for all travelling needs, but it’s built in hanging loop would allow it to easily be clipped onto a rucksack. Only downside is it’s bluetooth only, there is no aux input for connecting non bluetooth devices. Not sure why they didn’t add that.

A very clever little box, it’s not hi-fi quality sound, but what would you expect for the size. It’s certainly loud, and sounds surprisingly unforced at high volumes. The only downside i’ve noticed is that (on several ios devices at least) you have to go into bluetooth settings to connect it to your device, as for some reason it doesn’t appear in the airplay output list. This is a minor gripe, given that you usually have to turn it on before each use (it turns off automatically after ?15 mins idle time). By the way, we have dunked it in water a few times to test its ip rating, leading to much time at bath time as our children try to hear it playing underwater.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Boom! Shake The (Small) Room.
  • Build quality amazing, sound quality better.
  • Great sound

I’m a bit of a music junky and like a full ‘traditional’ sound – so i hate tiney speakrs that sound tinny. I have two and can pair them so i can have in kitchen and garden. Battery life is brillian – had them both on all day at the weekend, and still had battery for the next day. Can’t fault these at all for the price.

Love this little speakeramazing sound and surprisingly good bass considering it’s size. Bought with the intention of joining four of them together to place in each corner or the court whilst training but i’ve since discovered that joining more than two might not be possible based on other reviews so i’ve just stuck with one for now. Disappointed that you can’t skip back to the beginning of a track from the speaker and the play/forward button and also when two devices are connected, it can be very temperamental so i keep my phone handy and just avoid having two devices connected. Other than that, it’s a great little speaker and provided you don’t play at maximum volume the battery isn’t too bad but i keep a charger handy just in case as it drains quickly when turned up to max.

Wow, what a great sound from such a small speaker. Not only does this speaker look good but sounds fantastic. It’s easy to use, has simple instructions and is good to go on delivery. Not only is it party portable, but you can actually chuck into the bath water with you. I got as our bathroom gets really steamy on showering and previous water resistant speakers just don’t cut it. Get one now before they run out at christmas.

Looks cool, sound packs a punch, easy to connect to various devices (phone, laptop etc). If you have more than one you can connect them to each other. Both our teen and his grandfather get immense pleasure from theirs (my dad is hard of hearing and this can go loud) and i can borrow the teen’s for kitchen dancing or grown-up parties. Son wants to test the waterproofing. I’d rather he didn’t submerge it, just in case, but it survived a dofe trip dangling from the outside of his rucksack. Brilliant wee speaker which belies its size.

Not really tech minded so it was a bit of pain setting it up, but this was more my fault than the speaker. . Wish i had bought one before, sound is really impressive as is the volume, i have had it on every day since i got it, and i cant wait to take it out in the summer into the garden. Can’t believe that such a small box can give such an impressive performance. Would certainly recommend it if you were thinking of buying one.

I bought it as a gift – but kept it. The sound quality is really good, i can’t fault it, and certainly not at this price. I play it a lot while in the bath and have discovered it really is waterproof – i knocked it in a bath of water by accident and it kept playing. If i had to find fault, i might say it’s hard to adjust the volume using my feet as the controls are fairly flush to the sides of the wonderboom, but that’s nothing. And if i were to add a button, it would be a button to skip to the next track. But these are minor matters, i think it’s both tough and high quality, comparable to the bose bluetooth speaker i have that cost nearly 3x as much. The wonderboom is simple to use, easy to connect using bluetooth and i’d certainly buy another if gave away this one.

Great loud fantastic soundbuttons are not hard to push – ( as many suggest, but then i am male. )battery life exceptionalyes it’s waterproofdoes not connect to chromebook, not my toshiba one anywaydoes not connect to phones via bluetooth for phone callsis it a worthy buy?. It is very expensive for its capabilities, but i like it.

The relatively small package, certainly belies its punch; the sound from this unit is very impressive providing a very decent bass without neglecting vocals (and even more impressive given both the size and relative low cost). While i haven’t tested the promises surrounding its waterproof capability (), its a sturdy little speaker and superb for taking on the move and using outdoors. A particularly notable quality is the speaker’s ability to maintain its bluetooth connectivity despite being some distance from the unit. I find this very handy indeed. After using a whole variety of wired and bluetooth alternatives, unreservedly so. After two months of use, the only negative i can think of – and its a tenuous one at that – is that’s appearance is a little ‘knights templar’ and i wish they’d designed the volume buttons a little differently. Still, this is a very minor gripe, certainly doesn’t affect performance and in every other respect, the speaker is well worth the money.

This badboy really does the job. The sound quality is amazing when you consider the price. I chose one of these after reviewing several review sites. For me the most important thing was to have a waterproof speaker, with sound quality being a second criteria. The ue wonderboom exells in both categories. I’ve had this in a chlorinated hotub, fully submerged and as soon as it surfaced the music resumed and there was no noticeable change in sound quality at all, so is very waterproof, the sound is much better than i’d expect from any speaker at this price and probably is easily as good as some that are twice the price. The whole speaker fits easily in the hand, the only thing i’d change would be to make the loop larger, or to bring back the bungee cord that apparently came with the earlier versions (but given the size, it’s not exactly hard to carry). This is great for taking with you to hotels or when visiting friends and families as it hardly takes up any space. The battery life is amazing, the only downside being that if you manage to completely drain it that it’ll take a long time to charge back to full.

Wow, this speaker is really amazing. The battery life is excellent. The quality of the music is outstanding for the size of the speaker. It has a deep bass and clear tops. It’s very durable and easy to wipe clean if used outside and gets dirty. It is waterproof tested it in the bath speaker continued to play. Wiped it dry again on speaker played perfectly again. Would definitely recommend in fact i have been. Order it you won’t be disappointed.

By far the best speaker i’ve ever used, and for a very decent price. Top quality sound and appearance, would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient yet surprisingly loud and high quality speaker. The fabric texture is very unique and feels good to touch.

Bought this speaker to go on holiday and because it was waterproof. Definitely waterproof as i threw it in the pool to test and it passed. Although struggled to listen to it underwater :p. Sound quality is good considering the size and it gets to a decent volume. The fact that you can double up speakers is a nice touch. I think the bigger speakers will have better sound but obviously there’s added size and expense. Charging via usb is handy and convenient. Battery life is pretty good seems a good 6 hours at leastoverall a nice speaker and good value.

Really great speaker which has been properly tested in the swimming pool. Provides great sound and volume for the size. Bought for teenage kids who are very happy with the purchase.

I was worried that it would under perform in terms of bass and volume. It’s more than up to the job. Easily loud enough for a hotel room; also used it in the garden at a bbq and it was fine for that too. Very easy to connect to, charge and use. All in all a cracking little speaker. It’s no sonos play 1, but as a temporary/portable unit it’s ideal. Would have been even more pleased if it came in a protective case, or even a little bag but for this money you can’t really go wrong.

I bought this as a replacement for my ks hive 2+ bluetooth speaker which suddenly stopped producing sound after a year :(i was initially impressed by the many positive reviews on amazon and the rave reviews on notable tech websites. It’s packaged in a really great box, although i almost missed the usb charging cable which is tucked neatly away beneath the speaker — don’t accidentally throw it awayi really like the look of the speaker, it’s compact, tactile and modern. I bought mine in a light grey colour with yellow buttons. It comes with some charge so you can test it out straight away. I was a little apprehensive about the power-up noise it makes; in other reviews people had complained it was quite loud and obtrusive. I actually like the noise and i don’t think it’s ridiculously loud either. I never play music to get to sleep so i wouldn’t be worried about the volume of the power-down noise either as it switches off automatically after a period of inactivity. The speaker connected very quickly to my android smartphone and i later found out that two phones can connect at the same time. A minor negative is the lack of aux input, which for some people is a must if their device isn’t bluetooth enabled. On first impressions the sound quality for such a small, neat device is really impressive.

Brilliant little speaker, and when you have two and pair them, they will fill a very large area with great sound for such a small speaker. Well made, string and waterproof. I like ue products, their high end headphones are so good, i have the triple fi 10s which is what made me choose these speakers.

Ultimate Ears Megablast Bluetooth Speaker – A solid sounding speaker with too much Alexa dependency

I bought 2 of these so i could have music in bathrooms ( i already have 8 echos in the bedrooms and kitchen), however, there are certain issues i have to raise 9 good/bad)good – sound is clear and loud, it certainly warrants the price point. The portability is great, as i have taken one of these away with me a few times whilst travelling for business -connects well with bluetooth. Bad – alexa is sporadic at best = they do not connect automatically with your bluetooth device (phone/tablet)the start up process look like this – turn on >go to phone and connect to bluetooth >open the ue app – see if alexa has logged in/started, if not reload the app>restart and voilaits a pain that alexa does not always work, and the audio settings seem to change back to standard every time you start them. Bluetooth range is certainly not great indoors, as it stops working if you have your phone in a bedroom, and the ue in the bathroom on the same floor. I spoke with someone, and they mentioned the ue gets confused with so many echo’s in one house, and the auto log in to bluetooth always has to be started manually. Most of these issues i believe can be resolved with a solid firmware update, however i do not know when these issues will be ironed out. I was looking for a portable speaker for travel and bathrooms, and the ue is great for this, however, i paid the premium for alexa integration so i had voice control – this is patchy, and i would probably recommend the standard megablast as i have found i end up using my phone to hook up anyway.

This speaker was an excellent purchase. The sound quality is unparalleled and it easily fills any room without needing to be turned up too much. The built in alexa is a great added bonus and makes for easy control of the speaker while at home. I couldn’t be happier with this product, would recommend to anyone willing to throw in the extra cash.

So today i received my ultimate ears megablast. As a bit of context i should mention i am also the proud owner of an amazon echo 1st gen and a ultimate ears boom 2. The main difference between an echo and a megablast is the fact that an echo is more of a voice control hub that also happens to have an integrated speaker, the megablast is a high quality speaker that also happens to have alexa voice control in it. The key thing here is if you intend on listening to a lot of music (anywhere you want to go) then in my humble opinion the megablast operates in a whole different league of greatness. Before i received this i had my echo in my living room and the boom 2 in my office. Main reason for getting the megablast is because i never really rated the sound of my echo for music playback so i have been waiting for something capable of doing all the alexa stuff but most importantly with the sound quality of a purpose built audio device. As this is going to sit mainly in my living room i didn’t want to go down the echo dot plugged into a speaker route as it looks a little ugly to be on show. To start with the positives:first and foremoust, the sound quality is immense, significantly more ‘oomph’ than my boom 2, it sounds a lot bassier and warmer to listen to. The thing that jumped out more than anything is how crystal clear the mid and high top notes are. At 100% there was no reduction in sound quality, just very very loud.

Fantastic fidelity and brilliant portability.

I already have amazon echo so good to compare. The echo has very average sound but the alexa is very responsive. I mainly listen to the radio with alexa. I wanted a better portable speaker and the megablast seemed best option and value for money. The sound is definitely a huge step up better bass and overall sound. However the alexa is not quite as responsive. Sound was my priority however so i am happy and it is very durable and portable. The alexa is an added benefit. For serious listening i have a separates system that i use which can be beaten. Decide what your priority is.

Upgraded from my ue boom 2 and the bass quality is second to none. Highly recommend just go for it if you’re unsure.

  • Awesome Bluetooth speaker but glitchy as an Echo device
  • Really great speaker and ideal for a bathroom or en-suite
  • Sensational! Everything an Echo Should have been and then some more!

Such a meaty little speaker. I also tried the megaboom, but it was too tinny for my kind of music, i like a lot of bass and although this one is bigger and heavier it’s perfect sound quality = loud.

Lets split this into 2 parts. Oh and i’ve only had the speaker 2 days. Part 1 – as a bluetooth speaker i give it 5 stars. The sound is awesome, set up is simple (with the app) and i love it. Not really pushed it to its limits yet, but the bass is good and whether i am listening to music, talk radio or as the audio for a recording on my phone it sounds fab. Controls easy to use, speaker very portable, sure it’s a tad on the heavy side but i find that just adds to the ‘quality’ feel of the device. Now as an echo device, so far my impressions are not great. I have the original echo, about 2 years now so i am familiar with it, and so far the megablast is not a patch on it. It seems to struggle with basic commands, for instance this morning i was listening to absolute 80’s (don’t judge me) and when i told it to stop the response was ‘sorry something went wrong’ and it carried on playing.

This is a truly incredible bit of kit. The only hassle is not being able to charge it without either turning it over or buying the £35 charging station but this is easily fixed by a small mic tripod like this one:https://www. Uk/gp/product/b013u48zz4/to my ears this also improves the tightness of the bass and looks cool too.

I got this at a great price. The rrp of £279 is a total joke, especially as it then priced around sonos and homepod territory which are in different class when it comes for sound. What you have is a very durable, stylish, portable, waterproof speaker which competes well with other similar speakers. The sound is clear, and perhaps a bit too shrill in the treble which i think will improve as the speaker runs in. Bass is tight, controlled and free of distortion which is not easy to achieve. Midrange reasonable accurate. You need the sonos or homepod for that (in stereo configuration). It is a bit large but still portable.

I’ve only used it a bit, so can’t talk about much beyond the sound and performance. For what it is, a portable speaker, the sound is impressive. I’ve compared it to a couple other, older more expensive speakers, and it stands up well in terms of sound and cost much less. Portable is great, but to properly use it with alexa you’d need the expensive (£35) charging base, as it turns off if not used. For music on the move, or in the garden, as long as you have wifi it is just what you need.

Ultimate ears megablast bluetooth speaker, portable wi-fi/loud waterproof wireless speaker with amazon alexa voice control – bluei have never come across a speaker of that size that is so powerful and loud while also retaining amazing quality. I purchased this speaker the beginning of this year and i don’t think i have ever been as satisfied with speakers other than this one. When on full volume these speaker still manages to keep the quality and doesn’t distort in anyway. The speaker is rather heavy but it makes up for it in every other way. The alexa integration works really well and makes your life so much easier when wanting to find out a bit of information or just wanting the quickly listen a song without using your phone. I don’t have one fault with the speaker and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something loud, portable and of high quality.

Really great speaker and ideal for a bathroom or en-suite. I have a first gen alexa & alexa pro & a do, and now this kiddy in the ensuite. The sound is surprisingly rich and full and covers all ranges very well. You will need the power up charging dock for always-on alexa which i managed to sort. You can play and stream most services via wifi or bluetooth (spotify hopefully will be able to stream on wifi soon with updates but at the mo, on bluetooth. I’ve been using the speaker a couple of weeks now and i’m very pleased and it’s turning out to be a worthwhile investment.

Took me a wee while to decide on what speaker to buy, but not disappointed with my purchase, absolute fantastic speaker, no complaints at all.

Very good sound – especially when played at louder volume, but it does have some constraints when comparing to the amazon echo itself which i previously had on my desk (before the ue arrived). For example:- the ue device is either turned on or off, so if you user the timer or alarm options on the echo they will only work if you have the unit turned on (it tends to power itself off after 15 minutes if it is not playing – which makes sense as a rechargeable device). This can be a little annoying as i used to get the echo to set a reminder for key conference calls (as the outlook reminder usually gets hidden at the bottom), so it means i have to remember to have the ue on at the time i have these alarms to ‘ring’. The echo didn’t have this problem as it was always powered on in the background even when you’re not using it. – the ue doesn’t always get what you are saying and tells you it is having difficulty, but this can be a little annoying when you are just trying to get it to pause whilst you take a call. I don’t think i have quite so many issues with the echo understanding/acting on simple commands. – the sound is good, but is best quality when it is on a louder setting – i’m not sure i am getting best value from it just using it at my desk, the echo i used previoulsy was fine at the volume levels i tend to use whilst at my desk (that one has now moved upstairs). In summary the ue megablast is good quality, a great looking device (i’ve got the red one) and looking forward to taking it outside with me in the summer, but i think it is horses for courses and the echo i originally bought for my desk would have sufficed. We already have a number of echo-dots around the house ‘plumbed’ in to other devices to improve their sound quality e. By bluetooth into the stereo in the kitchen, same again in the lounge into our amp etc. So there is no real need to carry the ue around from room to room unless i am moving about a lot and don’t want to keep turning devices on around the house as i go. Although there are other options to do this – which my husband has now implemented using a harmony hub etc. For someone who initially didn’t want an echo/dot he’s certainly bought a few and using them to control all sorts of appliances – turning on the tv/amp/sky box before you get to the lounge, turning on lamps in other rooms before you get there etc.

Lacks basic controls like play/pause physical button. No speaker phone not an issue for me as i don’t use speakers for calls. Spotify and amazon music is flawless. Music control is also either through phone spotify as remote or alexa commands.

I already have one of these and this was supposed to be the second one. Unfortunately i found out the hard way that these speakers aren’t compatible with the party up feature. I believe it’s something to do with it having alexa. Why can’t you just disable alexa whilst in party up mode?.Or just have one microphone enabled?. Logitech sort yourselves out. On its own it’s an amazing speaker.

Ultimate sound: Ultimate Ears powerful speaker with 360 degrees intensely rich sound, high clarity and heart-pounding bass; with up to 12 hours of battery, it brings your music to life wherever you take it

I love the family of ultimate ears bluetooth speakers. I bought the biggest ‘megablast’ thinking it would be louder and bassier than the slightly smaller ‘megaboom’ but to be honest i’ve been more impressed with the sound from my friend’s megaboom. I’m pretty annoyed by the really flakey ‘spotify connect’ functionality which i was assured had been implemented into this model of speaker. It drops out from time to time and often isn’t appearing in my spotify device list despite both my phone and the speaker being on the same network.

It looks great, is simple to use, battery life brilliant and it sounds huge. The volume range covers more than i need for single room use. Sound quality is well above what i could have imagined including reassuring power, splendid bass and clarity across the frequency range. It goes well beyond a small mobile speaker trying to sound big – it belongs in the really good speaker that happens to be compact and mobile category. I haven’t tried alexa so cannot comment on that facility.

I got this for christmas, i particularly wanted this model ‘the megablast’ becuase of the bluetooth and wifi with alexa. So i could take it away in our campervan. Hopefully pairing it to my iphone and using alexa on the road wherever we go. Use it outside the van for listening to our music and movies we watch. Having bought many different high quality speakers over the years. This lives up to its reputation. Clear, precise and detailed with a solid bass.

Works perfect, sounds good, but bass is not strongest side of megablast. Install app and received updates since realese with more features. There are 2 adapters: uk and europe, very good for traveling. Keep in touch with updates, hope soon spotify and other speaker features like equilizer and etc.

The sound quality is just fantastic – brilliant bass and punchy power. It’s well-built and good looking too. I was looking for a bluetooth speaker but i’ve ended up using the smart functionality more, which i wasn’t expecting (alexa is sometimes glitchy though). Battery life could be a lot better. I only get around half what they say at 50% volume. After doing a lot of research i bought this instead of the megaboom 3 as it’s better value (and the flagship product in the ue range) and i have no regrets.

I’m quite sniffy about the quality of the sound that i get. It was £130, which i deemed good value. I don’t think it’s one to take on a business trip. But for my big bathroom, i can ask alexa to play anything from spotify, or play bbc radio 6. (late breaking news – my wife has nicked it for her bathroom, so i need another one.

With Amazon Alexa hands-free voice control: Just ask Alexa to blast tunes from Amazon music*, Spotify or* TuneIn, change tracks, check the weather or try any of Alexa’s skills

When it turns itself off from being idol it will not sound your morning alarms, learned that the hard way, i think it’s another little scheme to get you to buy their charging dock, fantastic speaker anyhow no other problems.

This speaker produces very high quality sound for its size with a lovely bass for music and clear treble for speech. It has a small footprint so takes up little space and can be positioned virtually anywhere. The built in alexa works fine, as does the app. I bought from amazon at £129 which is a bargain considering the usual price. I have a bang and olufsen beolit 17 portable speaker costing nearly twice the price retail and although it cannot provide the all round power and bass of that larger speaker it nearly matches it in overall sound quality and beats it hands down in portability and versatility.

Dislike the alexa interface. Have to talk loud and clear for it to understand. Not as good as the proper echo’s. Frustratingly keeps losing internet connection. Have updated but still does it. Sound is fantastic so top mark’s there.

This was my first bluetooth speaker and i’m really pleased with it. Alexa integration also works without any issues. Not sure why people have some many problems – mine had 0 issues. Since buying this, i have also bought beoplay a1 and beoplay m5, but the ue megablast remains my default go to speaker. Excellent battery life, superb sound, bluetooth and wi-fi. Managed to get this on black friday deal at £129. 99 and have used it almost every day.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled: Use the Alexa voice service at home or on the go whenever connected to Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot or stream music via Bluetooth from your phone

Frequency range: 60Hz – 20kHz.

Ultimate Ears Blast Bluetooth Speaker – Take music with you everywhere, for everyone! :)

I am familiar with the boom 2 already and i would say this is a refined version with the added benefit of alexa voice control.

Whilst the sound and volume are really good, it constantly disconnects from bluetooth and no matter what ive tried to do, i cant get it to keep a sustained connection. Here are the specifications for the Ultimate Ears Blast Bluetooth Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Ultimate Sound: Ultimate Ears most powerful speaker with 360 degrees intensely rich sound, elegant clarity and heart-pounding bass; with up to 12 hours of battery, it brings your music to life wherever you take it
  • With Amazon Alexa hands-free voice control: Just ask Alexa to blast tunes from Amazon music*, Spotify or* TuneIn, change tracks, check the weather or try any of Alexa’s skills
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled: Use the Alexa voice service at home or on the go whenever connected to Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot or stream music via Bluetooth from your phone
  • Waterproof and virtually indestructible: Never worry about going easy on it, your music will always be on point; the speaker is IP67 rated and can be immersed in water up to 1 m for 30 minutes
  • Frequency range: 90 Hz – 20 kHz; update your speaker with the Ultimate Ears app as new features become available

Great speaker lovely deep bass sound guality great , i’ve been using it in the garden for several weeks. I love it alexa players all the music i want. I wanted a rugged speaker as we have two large dog ,chances of it being knocked over are high ,plus we have a lot of water in the garden with 2 ponds and a large paddling pool for the dogs to play in. So loving the fact it’s waterproof.

The main concern people have with this speaker is the ultimate ears app, which is not very good. However you only need to use the app for initial setup, which i found to be quick and straightforward. After that you can control the alexa functions using amazon’s alexa app. This allows you to learn about new skills, change your preferences, and so on. I use amazon prime music, so found it easy to play stuff from my library. Once the speaker is set up, alexa works very well on this. I find the microphone picks up male voices better than female, and you have to yell a bit if you want it to hear you while it is playing music. But as it learns your voice, it gets better. It responds to commands quite quickly, and i have had no problems with the software, or the wifi connectivity. The speaker itself is excellent- which is just as well considering the price.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Love it. Great size and sound quality is good
  • Sounds great – Wifi and/or Alexa isn’t
  • Sounds great, solidly built

This is perhaps one of the best portable speakers i’ve used in terms of build quality, connectivity and sound quality (for its size). It features lots of connectivity options including bluetooth and wi-fi. The built-in amazon alexa works very well, although it’s very slightly slower at responding compared to amazon’s own alexa speakers – this is the speaker that actually introduced me to the amazing world of alexa and the sole reason i now have 1 echo spot and 3 echo dots. I initially disregarded voice control as a gimmick but didn’t realise how useful it would especially for home automation such as controlling lights with lightwave rf and controlling the heating with tado. Sound quality is excellent for the size of the speaker. It’s crisp and clear with a decent amount of bass (just don’t expect it to shake anything). It can go extremely loud without any distortion, outperforming every speaker i’ve tried (of a similar size). This isn’t the most lightweight speaker you’ll find but the build quality is exceptional and seems like it will withstand heavy abuse. It’s also completely waterproof so it’s perfect for using in the shower, bath, hot tub or pool. Battery life is very good at 12 hours – long enough to not have to worry about charging it.

At the standard price, this is expensive; but bought at a discount then is a very good buy. Sound quality & volume is excellent, and omnidirectional, so ideal for outdoor use. Being waterproof is also a bonusyou need to be in the alexa camp to make the most of it though, although it can be used as a normal bluetooth speaker if notthe alexa experience is not quite up to echo standard, but acceptable; and, given a strong wi-fi signal, can work in the some distance away from the houseif you don’t want to fiddle with charging the speaker with a micro usb socket (hidden beneath the rubber base plug), i would recommend the optional charging dock; but it is way too expensive at £35, (and really should be included as standard. )shop around – currys had a half price offer on recently.

Setup was great if not perfectly straightforward. However on looking closer the ue blast shipped without a bottom cap so the micro usb port is exposed to water which means it won’t be fully waterproof. This is seriously dissapointing as i was just starting to enjoy using alexa with spotify but now i’m going to have to return the device.

Very versatile and excellent sound. Very high quality for the price.

I bought this speaker after having enjoyed my previous boom, and the sound quality is even better. So far my speaker has worked perfectly and was very easy to set up.

Absolutely brilliant, bought as a gift for my wife.

Tried the speaker for a few days, doesn’t live up to expectations, battery life is short, sound quality is average, was expecting better product. Will try to return it and maybe go for a different brand.

I prefer the wonderboom – this one cuts out a lot.

Very nice and neat, love the fact i don’t need my phone around the house to play music any more. Although wish it had a sim car to use data when i was out and about but never mind. Excellant speaker for only £99.

Got this for teenager for christmas. Absolutely loves it, purchased amazon prime also so she can use prime music through the ultimate ears blast. Cannot keep her off it, music playing all the time, even in bathroom as it’s waterproof. Really sturdy and strong looking. Sound is amazing and cannot believe how loud it will go. Had no issues in setting up. Did lots of research before buying this.

Just ask for a selection from an artist or era and it plays as well as repeating your favourites. It goes around the house with me and we now have a carrier so we can take it on holiday with us.

I like the sound quality and the fact it fills a room. I purchased this for being a good quality bluetooth speaker with added amazon alexa and on that basis its great. It can connect to the amazon tv thingy and easily connects to my mobile phone (i have downloaded the devices app think that helps a lot). The only negative for me is its in the kitchen and sometimes it seems to have difficulty reaching the house wifi signal where our mobile phones or other devices have no problem in the same spot. However i know where to position it so this is not an issue, but it might be for some. My annoyance with amazon is that its alexa software should connect to a spotify free account and not just a paid account. However alexa does connect to tunein radio which is great.

If you like alexa you will love this speaker. I got already alexa at home but the fact that this speaker has alexa built in is just amazing, you can now bring alexa on holidays with you without limits considering that the speaker is powered by battery and also waterproof. You will never need your phone again to play music cause the speaker will connect straight to the wifi and play the music from your favorite music provider such as spotify. (no more music interruption if somebody call you on your phone while music is playing). I’ve also notice since i’ve purchased the device that they integrated new funcions in the system such as spotify music and they also fixed some small bugs, this means that they are always improving the software. Really like this speakerno blast no party.

I am rating this four stars because of sound quality. The size and weight are what i expected. The volume can go up really high. The quality and depth of sound is adequate and it’ll be fine for the holidays we have this year, in a cottage, on the beach, etc. But it’s far from hi fidelity. The alexa support is actually quite good and did what i expected (i also have echo products) so i’m not sure what other reviewers expected. Lovely product design and easy to use, hold, carry around, and charge.

Great life proof bluetooth speaker with decent battery life. Sounds amazing and goes very loud.

Good sound quality and work really good whit i builded alexa.

Ultimate Ears, WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker, Waterproof Speaker with Double-Up Connection, 10-Hour Battery Life, Clear, Crisp, Elegant Bass, Immersive Sound, Black and Grey, Pack of 2 – Brilliant little speaker

By far the best speaker i’ve ever used, and for a very decent price. Top quality sound and appearance, would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient yet surprisingly loud and high quality speaker. The fabric texture is very unique and feels good to touch.

Wow, this speaker is really amazing. The battery life is excellent. The quality of the music is outstanding for the size of the speaker. It has a deep bass and clear tops. It’s very durable and easy to wipe clean if used outside and gets dirty. It is waterproof tested it in the bath speaker continued to play. Wiped it dry again on speaker played perfectly again. Would definitely recommend in fact i have been. Order it you won’t be disappointed.

I love it (maybe because it’s my first bluetooth speaker). However, i will be honest and say i was disappointed by the bass when i tested it the first time (albeit with a song that has deep bass). It can’t reach the lower bass tones and so doesn’t have the richness and ‘boom’. That said, it’s still ok and does have bass, just not considerable. Also, the waterproof feature is good, no problems there. One annoyance is that it cannot be used when making or taking calls, not even as an output. It just cuts out completely, which was rather disappointing when i first discovered it. All in all, it’s a decent speaker, lacking in a couple of personal points of preference.

Bought one of these for my partner as a birthday present and was astounded with the sound quality of this little speaker. My father asked me to purchase one for my mother as a christmas present as he was also very impressed, as he is very much a ‘sound snob’, this was proof of the quality of this little speaker. You really won’t be let down buy purchasing this item. For the price i would push it’s the best in its range by a long way.

Love the bright cute colours and design. Just perfect for going on holiday, picnics, pools. Sound is mighty for it’s size. I like the bass on the ue boom and wonderboom, very rounded sound. I also own a bose link mini ii which is also great but i find this one more versatile for carrying around and having fun, it doesn’t seem as fragile. Very happy with my purchase.

I’ve bought bluetooth speakers before and always gone for small portable units and the sound quality and battery life seem to have always reflected the sizethis wonderboom is in a different league. I have no idea how they get so much rich deep reverberant and (if you want) loud sound from such a small unit. I love the design, the small size and the battery life. I love the fact that you can have more than one device registered to the bluetooth connection, so either i or my partner can just start playing music without having to change anything. I haven’t tested the waterproofing or shock proofing but both specs would indicate this is an ideal speaker to take with you outdoors or in the wet. My only negatives would be that it’s not quite so good at very low volumes (eg background music whilst reading)well worth the price.

  • Boom! Shake The (Small) Room.
  • Build quality amazing, sound quality better.
  • A rugged and compact speaker

Bought this speaker to go on holiday and because it was waterproof. Definitely waterproof as i threw it in the pool to test and it passed. Although struggled to listen to it underwater :p. Sound quality is good considering the size and it gets to a decent volume. The fact that you can double up speakers is a nice touch. I think the bigger speakers will have better sound but obviously there’s added size and expense. Charging via usb is handy and convenient. Battery life is pretty good seems a good 6 hours at leastoverall a nice speaker and good value.

Love this little speakeramazing sound and surprisingly good bass considering it’s size. Bought with the intention of joining four of them together to place in each corner or the court whilst training but i’ve since discovered that joining more than two might not be possible based on other reviews so i’ve just stuck with one for now. Disappointed that you can’t skip back to the beginning of a track from the speaker and the play/forward button and also when two devices are connected, it can be very temperamental so i keep my phone handy and just avoid having two devices connected. Other than that, it’s a great little speaker and provided you don’t play at maximum volume the battery isn’t too bad but i keep a charger handy just in case as it drains quickly when turned up to max.

Decent bluetooth speaker, bought on black friday when it was £50, i don’t think it’s worth the usual price. Nice and portable, fun looking speaker, the waterproof feature is great, ideal shower or travel speaker. Don’t buy this to use at home to fill a room with sound, it’s not good enough for that and there are better options out there, my sonos play 1 – although twice as big and twice the price – sounds a hundred times better than this. This is a great speaker if you use it for it’s intended purpose.

Wow, what a great sound from such a small speaker. Not only does this speaker look good but sounds fantastic. It’s easy to use, has simple instructions and is good to go on delivery. Not only is it party portable, but you can actually chuck into the bath water with you. I got as our bathroom gets really steamy on showering and previous water resistant speakers just don’t cut it. Get one now before they run out at christmas.

Good: it’s very stable and loud. It looks good but i was surprised how much sound this little speaker can deliver. Even more impressive is its range, i can walk around the house with this speaker while my phone is charging and signal is strong no matter how far i go. It works great with android and ios, no problem with switching between two devices. Easy to set up, plays 360 so it can stand virtually anywhere. It’s loud, i know that i mentioned that already, but it is much more than i expected. Bad: it doesn’t support phone calls, only media, so if you leave your phone further away and someone call you, there is no other way than run for your phone. No true stereo in two sets of speakers, if you connect another wonderboom speaker, each of them will play exactly the same sound. I was disappointed that i can’t connect a cable and use that speaker with my mp3 player. The sound is a bit annoying. There is a lot of bass but it’s not deep and rather muddy. Mid range is almost gone and heights are ok, not razor sharp, but fine. It sounds spacious and reminds me ‘incredible surround’ from my boom box in 90’s. I compared this speaker with ue boom 2 lite and wonderboom is much louder and with better bass but everything else is worse, not that clear.

The 360-degrees sound is amazing, the clarity is astounding, and the build quality is unrivalled. Mine legit got punched off a table and landed on a hard floor on the first day of me having it, and there wasn’t a scratch. It feels sturdy and solid, definitely like something worth the price tag. The tactile feel of the buttons has improved a little, especially on the top of the device, but the volume buttons do need a little extra force to be pressed (and right in the centre too). The volume of the device is pretty loud. Even in parties or pre-drinks i never really set it above half volume, or it gets too loud. However, the sound can distort at the highest volume levels, *although*, this may just be a software or external hardware issue due to drivers or the media being played itself. I myself did not notice it at all until i was watching a movie with it.

A very clever little box, it’s not hi-fi quality sound, but what would you expect for the size. It’s certainly loud, and sounds surprisingly unforced at high volumes. The only downside i’ve noticed is that (on several ios devices at least) you have to go into bluetooth settings to connect it to your device, as for some reason it doesn’t appear in the airplay output list. This is a minor gripe, given that you usually have to turn it on before each use (it turns off automatically after ?15 mins idle time). By the way, we have dunked it in water a few times to test its ip rating, leading to much time at bath time as our children try to hear it playing underwater.

I bought it as a gift – but kept it. The sound quality is really good, i can’t fault it, and certainly not at this price. I play it a lot while in the bath and have discovered it really is waterproof – i knocked it in a bath of water by accident and it kept playing. If i had to find fault, i might say it’s hard to adjust the volume using my feet as the controls are fairly flush to the sides of the wonderboom, but that’s nothing. And if i were to add a button, it would be a button to skip to the next track. But these are minor matters, i think it’s both tough and high quality, comparable to the bose bluetooth speaker i have that cost nearly 3x as much. The wonderboom is simple to use, easy to connect using bluetooth and i’d certainly buy another if gave away this one.

I was worried that it would under perform in terms of bass and volume. It’s more than up to the job. Easily loud enough for a hotel room; also used it in the garden at a bbq and it was fine for that too. Very easy to connect to, charge and use. All in all a cracking little speaker. It’s no sonos play 1, but as a temporary/portable unit it’s ideal. Would have been even more pleased if it came in a protective case, or even a little bag but for this money you can’t really go wrong.

Great loud fantastic soundbuttons are not hard to push – ( as many suggest, but then i am male. )battery life exceptionalyes it’s waterproofdoes not connect to chromebook, not my toshiba one anywaydoes not connect to phones via bluetooth for phone callsis it a worthy buy?. It is very expensive for its capabilities, but i like it.

I tested this against the anker soundcore motion q – similar size and power, but £20 cheaper than the wonderboom. I tested them side by side to get a true comparison. The result: the wonderboom lives up to its name. Deeper bass, brighter treble, more presence, detail and sparkle. By comparison, the motion q was flatter and a bit muddier. Just not as lively and without the bass depth of the wonderboom. In this case, you get what you pay for. But if you’re willing to pay a little extra for the wonderboom, you get the jump in performance. It won’t shake your fillings out, but for its size (slightly stubbier than a can of soup) the bass has plenty of oomph.

Big Sound: The Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM waterproof speaker produces big sound packed in a highly portable Bluetooth-connective speaker

This badboy really does the job. The sound quality is amazing when you consider the price. I chose one of these after reviewing several review sites. For me the most important thing was to have a waterproof speaker, with sound quality being a second criteria. The ue wonderboom exells in both categories. I’ve had this in a chlorinated hotub, fully submerged and as soon as it surfaced the music resumed and there was no noticeable change in sound quality at all, so is very waterproof, the sound is much better than i’d expect from any speaker at this price and probably is easily as good as some that are twice the price. The whole speaker fits easily in the hand, the only thing i’d change would be to make the loop larger, or to bring back the bungee cord that apparently came with the earlier versions (but given the size, it’s not exactly hard to carry). This is great for taking with you to hotels or when visiting friends and families as it hardly takes up any space. The battery life is amazing, the only downside being that if you manage to completely drain it that it’ll take a long time to charge back to full.

The best portable speaker i’ve ever owned. It’s not cheap, but it sounds amazing. Deep clear bass and genuine encompassing sound field. It’s plenty loud enough for most occasions. It’s not that small, or light so it’s possibly not suited for all travelling needs, but it’s built in hanging loop would allow it to easily be clipped onto a rucksack. Only downside is it’s bluetooth only, there is no aux input for connecting non bluetooth devices. Not sure why they didn’t add that.

I bought this so i could play music from my phone and pc. Also i use alexa with it and listen to the radio and prime music. It’s loud and better quality than you’d expect from something its sizethe bass isn’t amazing but it’s there. It does actually sound better than my 2. You can probably buy better but it sounds good imo and it’s durable and very portable which are the reasons you buy something like this.

Bought for 70 gbp in feb 2018 – its a good speaker but i wouldn’t buy it again for the money. It is bigger than i thought from the pictures and i was really looking for a smaller size. Sound quality is okay for a compact speaker, turns off automatically to save battery which is good but does it with quite an obtrusive sound effect which is a shame. If you know this is what you want then im sure it will be good.

I’ve had this device since for 10 months now and overall i’m really impressed with their battery life and the durability of them. Admittedly the sound quality isn’t those of a higher end speaker (i. Bose/sonnos) but there’s honestly nothing wrong with it for someone after a robust speaker to take to the beach or have in the shower. My only disliking is the control of sound isn’t amazing but this shouldn’t put you off.

Excellent value for money with this small but perfectly formed speaker. Once set up it connects quickly, easily and reliably on future switch ons. The sound is decent, particularly if you can sit it down at roughly ear height and adjust its distance from walls and flat surfaces to suit your taste. Liked mine so much i bought one as a gift for a mate. Not seen anything better for the price.

It allows you to hear music that is crisp, clear and full of big, elegant bass thanks to its frequency range of 80 Hz to 20 kHz

I’m quite in love with this speaker. It’s practical, cute, and brings a lot of joy in the everyday life. But the sound effect when turning it on and off is just too loud and there’s no way to get rid of it. I’d like to use the speaker for listening to music when going to sleep, but because the speaker auto-shuts down with a loud sound after music ends, it wakes me up again. Therefore it can’t be used for that purpose, which almost makes me want to give 2 stars only.

Great piece of equipment which i bought as a christmas gift to myself. But was surprised what was delivered by amazon was an opened product box. (not the amazon cardboard packaging) i could see the original device packaging had been opened; the stickers/packaging had been cut, and dentthe device inside the box seemed to be brand new. Would recommend despite it being opened. So be cautious when it arrives other than that good product with amazon sound.

Excellent sound for holiday tunes. A bit heavier than expected but not an issue for me. Sound was excellent and extremely easy to connect to my bluetooth devices.

Brilliant little speaker, and when you have two and pair them, they will fill a very large area with great sound for such a small speaker. Well made, string and waterproof. I like ue products, their high end headphones are so good, i have the triple fi 10s which is what made me choose these speakers.

Looks cool, sound packs a punch, easy to connect to various devices (phone, laptop etc). If you have more than one you can connect them to each other. Both our teen and his grandfather get immense pleasure from theirs (my dad is hard of hearing and this can go loud) and i can borrow the teen’s for kitchen dancing or grown-up parties. Son wants to test the waterproofing. I’d rather he didn’t submerge it, just in case, but it survived a dofe trip dangling from the outside of his rucksack. Brilliant wee speaker which belies its size.

I am so pleased with this little bomb. It sounds great, is so hardy, and so compact and user friendly. Our house would be lost without it. We took it on holiday, on a boating holiday etc, and it was great for us all to listen to some music, the children to listen to audible book etc. My son tested in the water and that seemed to work, but i will not be trying to replicate that. But it is good to know that if i use it in the bathroom and it gets a little wet, it will still go on. The sound quality is great for me, and my husband agrees, especially for the money, but then we are not huge sound fanatics.

Really great speaker which has been properly tested in the swimming pool. Provides great sound and volume for the size. Bought for teenage kids who are very happy with the purchase.

10-Hour Battery Life: This waterproof Bluetooth speaker is rechargeable and has a long-lasting 10-hour battery lifespan

I was well pleased with the sound of this. I think the sound is very good. My only negative is that because i use it for sleepsounds/music when falling asleep the lowest volume is still a bit too loud. Also the on/off sound it makes is stupidly loud and when the music has stopped and the speaker eventually turn itself off it wakes me up quite violently. However for daytime listening whilst getting ready and putting makeup on, as well as listening in the bath, it is really great.

One of the best products i have ever purchased. This speaker performs incredibly at any volume with brilliant bass, mid-range and treble. It floats without fail and although the sound quality is compromised it is to be expected. This speaker is great for sailing as it can be attached to a cleat/carabiner in the boat and you need not fear for your speaker when you capsize or gybe, it is also great for rowing. The sound quality as previously stated is incredible and the speaker can go loud enough to cater for any regular environment. Easy to connect to with bluetooth but unfortunately no aux jack is present in the speaker so some older mp3 players/ipods may not be compatible. The charger works well – not especially fast but sufficient to charge the speaker to 100% in less than 2 hours (for me 1. The fabric covering is prone to stains but otherwise is appealing. The buttons are not particularly tactile but when pressed function – just do not expect a click.

This is overwhelmingly a great bit of kit. In particular i like how rugged it is – ours has been knocked around a fair bit without any problems, and the waterproofing is handy (we use it a lot in the kitchen where it frequently gets operated with wet hands). Battery life is excellent (ours is used 1-2 hours a day and we must charge it about once a month), sound quality is decent for the price (though i wish it was a little better with human speech), and i find the carry handle really usefulreally the only significant issue i have with it is the ridiculously loud power on/off and bluetooth connect/disconnect sounds the device has – and there is *no way* to make them quieter or switch them off. It’s a really bizarre and unfortunate design flaw, and whilst you can mitigate it (i frequently stuff ours under a cushion before switching it on), it’s enough of a bother to mean i’d only give the device four stars rather than five. In all other respects though we’re very happy with it.

The audio is crisp and very clear. However, in the packaging the instructions weren’t very clear and they were very limited. Also, when i try to press the button on top to change the song, it may take me more than one press. Other than that, it is an amazing device and i recommend it to everyone. I’ve used it for a month now and, in comparison to other speaker, it is without a doubt the dominant one.

I’m a bit of a music junky and like a full ‘traditional’ sound – so i hate tiney speakrs that sound tinny. I have two and can pair them so i can have in kitchen and garden. Battery life is brillian – had them both on all day at the weekend, and still had battery for the next day. Can’t fault these at all for the price.

Bought this speaker as girf and it’s not the first one i get from the ue product. I got a boom2 for myself and bought a roll 2 for one of my friends. All of the ue speakers are great quality ones; their sound is really really good and they are super resistant. I would suggest this products to everyone who want to enjoy music everywhere.

Ideal for Outdoor or Indoor Use: The WONDERBOOM Bluetooth speaker system is the ideal outdoor speaker for showers, pools, beaches and more –

Not really tech minded so it was a bit of pain setting it up, but this was more my fault than the speaker. . Wish i had bought one before, sound is really impressive as is the volume, i have had it on every day since i got it, and i cant wait to take it out in the summer into the garden. Can’t believe that such a small box can give such an impressive performance. Would certainly recommend it if you were thinking of buying one.

First off, this feels like a solidly built product. It is quite weighty, so i would not want to carry it around with me, but it feels built to last. The control buttons weren’t intuitive to me at first, so i needed a quick google in order to set it up. However once i realised how they worked it was simple after that. The product pairs easily with my phone and the range seems good. Sound quality is excellent with rich bass and the volume is good.

The relatively small package, certainly belies its punch; the sound from this unit is very impressive providing a very decent bass without neglecting vocals (and even more impressive given both the size and relative low cost). While i haven’t tested the promises surrounding its waterproof capability (), its a sturdy little speaker and superb for taking on the move and using outdoors. A particularly notable quality is the speaker’s ability to maintain its bluetooth connectivity despite being some distance from the unit. I find this very handy indeed. After using a whole variety of wired and bluetooth alternatives, unreservedly so. After two months of use, the only negative i can think of – and its a tenuous one at that – is that’s appearance is a little ‘knights templar’ and i wish they’d designed the volume buttons a little differently. Still, this is a very minor gripe, certainly doesn’t affect performance and in every other respect, the speaker is well worth the money.

Ultimate Ears Blast Bluetooth Speaker : Sound Quality is Insane and the Bass is much better than the UE Boom 2

I am familiar with the boom 2 already and i would say this is a refined version with the added benefit of alexa voice control.

My nephew took one of these speakers (without alexa) on holiday with us – and we were all blown away with the sound around the pool. I bought this one with alexa to use in the bathroom so i could skip through songs and change playlists without having to touch it while showering or in bath. When it connects with wifi, so i’m guessing anything you ask alexa to do – it constantly drops playback – sometimes it will resume – almost as though it is buffering. Sometimes it wont – it just stops like it forget what it was doing. This is the same with spotify, or tunein radio stations. The help says move your router – isolate it from electrical interference – but i must have 20 things in this house using the wifi – and this is the only thing that has connection problems. Anyway using through bluetooth seems to be fine – and it was less than £100 in the sale – so i am keeping it – hopefully ue will do something with firmware or software and sort it out.

Whilst the sound and volume are really good, it constantly disconnects from bluetooth and no matter what ive tried to do, i cant get it to keep a sustained connection.

I bought this speaker after having enjoyed my previous boom, and the sound quality is even better. So far my speaker has worked perfectly and was very easy to set up.

  • Love it. Great size and sound quality is good
  • Sounds great – Wifi and/or Alexa isn’t
  • Sounds great, solidly built

Bought a ue blast as was reduced on amazon prime day and liked how could stream spotify onto it without having to use phone or tablet so great to use in garden and generally round the house without having to mess around with plugging it in as rechargeable. Unfortunately the first one i had lasted only about a week before it started to play up – won’t connect to wi-fi and kept dropping out on bluetooth before it finally would only power up for brief time before shutting off again. Amazon were great – organised replacement that arrived next day. Unfortunately the replacement lasted less than a day before it died completely, won’t power up even when plugged into the charger so amazon are refunding it now which is a shame. Considering the rest of logitech’s build quality – i have g series keyboard and mouse now as well as harmony remote and well as in the past and all have been excellent in terms of reliability it’s a shame that their ultimate ears stuff doesn’t seem to be able to last. Will have to look into some other portable speaker instead.

Got this for teenager for christmas. Absolutely loves it, purchased amazon prime also so she can use prime music through the ultimate ears blast. Cannot keep her off it, music playing all the time, even in bathroom as it’s waterproof. Really sturdy and strong looking. Sound is amazing and cannot believe how loud it will go. Had no issues in setting up. Did lots of research before buying this.

Very versatile and excellent sound. Very high quality for the price.

This is perhaps one of the best portable speakers i’ve used in terms of build quality, connectivity and sound quality (for its size). It features lots of connectivity options including bluetooth and wi-fi. The built-in amazon alexa works very well, although it’s very slightly slower at responding compared to amazon’s own alexa speakers – this is the speaker that actually introduced me to the amazing world of alexa and the sole reason i now have 1 echo spot and 3 echo dots. I initially disregarded voice control as a gimmick but didn’t realise how useful it would especially for home automation such as controlling lights with lightwave rf and controlling the heating with tado. Sound quality is excellent for the size of the speaker. It’s crisp and clear with a decent amount of bass (just don’t expect it to shake anything). It can go extremely loud without any distortion, outperforming every speaker i’ve tried (of a similar size). This isn’t the most lightweight speaker you’ll find but the build quality is exceptional and seems like it will withstand heavy abuse. It’s also completely waterproof so it’s perfect for using in the shower, bath, hot tub or pool. Battery life is very good at 12 hours – long enough to not have to worry about charging it.

I bought this primarily to provide good quality sound for my mobile devices (phone and tablet). For this task, it works very well and sound quality is great. However, documentation for connecting to wifi was not brilliant and it took some time to resolve. I tried using ipad, iphone, laptop running ubuntu and finally had to reboot an old laptop running win 7 before the s/w worked. The original unit stopped working after a few days. It kept turning itself off despite being housed on the charging unit – so therefore not an obvious loss of power. This was resolved by amazon’s excellent returns system. A new speaker arrived 2 days after i had an online chat with amazon customer services. ***** for amazon cust servsall seems ok now apart from alexa has a tendency to drop the wifi connection when playing direct through the internet. I resolve this by connecting via tablet or phone rather than directly using alexa.

Great speaker lovely deep bass sound guality great , i’ve been using it in the garden for several weeks. I love it alexa players all the music i want. I wanted a rugged speaker as we have two large dog ,chances of it being knocked over are high ,plus we have a lot of water in the garden with 2 ponds and a large paddling pool for the dogs to play in. So loving the fact it’s waterproof.

Tried the speaker for a few days, doesn’t live up to expectations, battery life is short, sound quality is average, was expecting better product. Will try to return it and maybe go for a different brand.

If you like alexa you will love this speaker. I got already alexa at home but the fact that this speaker has alexa built in is just amazing, you can now bring alexa on holidays with you without limits considering that the speaker is powered by battery and also waterproof. You will never need your phone again to play music cause the speaker will connect straight to the wifi and play the music from your favorite music provider such as spotify. (no more music interruption if somebody call you on your phone while music is playing). I’ve also notice since i’ve purchased the device that they integrated new funcions in the system such as spotify music and they also fixed some small bugs, this means that they are always improving the software. Really like this speakerno blast no party.

I like the sound quality and the fact it fills a room. I purchased this for being a good quality bluetooth speaker with added amazon alexa and on that basis its great. It can connect to the amazon tv thingy and easily connects to my mobile phone (i have downloaded the devices app think that helps a lot). The only negative for me is its in the kitchen and sometimes it seems to have difficulty reaching the house wifi signal where our mobile phones or other devices have no problem in the same spot. However i know where to position it so this is not an issue, but it might be for some. My annoyance with amazon is that its alexa software should connect to a spotify free account and not just a paid account. However alexa does connect to tunein radio which is great.

Stronger sound quality than the echo’s with long battery life and well executed alexa support.

Good sound quality and work really good whit i builded alexa.

I prefer the wonderboom – this one cuts out a lot.

Setup was great if not perfectly straightforward. However on looking closer the ue blast shipped without a bottom cap so the micro usb port is exposed to water which means it won’t be fully waterproof. This is seriously dissapointing as i was just starting to enjoy using alexa with spotify but now i’m going to have to return the device.

Very nice and neat, love the fact i don’t need my phone around the house to play music any more. Although wish it had a sim car to use data when i was out and about but never mind. Excellant speaker for only £99.

Excellent sound and battery life well worth the buy.

Excellent design, sound quality was exceptional. Looked white on amazon pics. Similar colour to a school eraser. It looks as though it would get dirty easier than one of the other colours esp. If you use it as supposed to be. Returned reordered the speaker in blue.

I am rating this four stars because of sound quality. The size and weight are what i expected. The volume can go up really high. The quality and depth of sound is adequate and it’ll be fine for the holidays we have this year, in a cottage, on the beach, etc. But it’s far from hi fidelity. The alexa support is actually quite good and did what i expected (i also have echo products) so i’m not sure what other reviewers expected. Lovely product design and easy to use, hold, carry around, and charge.

Great life proof bluetooth speaker with decent battery life. Sounds amazing and goes very loud.
