Ultimate Ears Megaboom Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker : Five Stars

The only reason i am not giving this five stars is due to the slight lack of deep bass but that was kind of expected. It can get pretty loud and the battery seems to be endless.

The speaker has good sound and can be used anywhere that can be linked with bluetooth. It can therefore be used in any room of the house and is easily portable.

Amazing doing for the money.

I have had it for a few months now and have used in almost every day, it has good sound quality and decent battery life. It is also very rugged, i have dropped it countless time on land and in water.

Ultimate Ears Megaboom Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker (Waterproof and Shockproof) – Cityscape : The best speaker i think i can buy, absolutely love it.

I must say, this speaker is rather wonderful. As a music lover, and someone who requires use of a speaker for delivering training, this speaker has been an absolute dreamthe sound quality is brilliant, the volume can fill fairly large spaces, but it’s bluetooth connectivity means it can connect up with other ue boom speakers if not sufficient (although i have not had to do this to date). It’s size, although slightly bigger than other ue speakers is still perfect for travellingoverall a wonderful product, if only more speakers were like this.

Brilliant quality and sound, highly recommend.

Very crisp sound quality, quite loud (can fill up a room quite easily). Battery life is decent and quite a sturdy design.

This is the second megaboom i got and have to say the offer great sound quality and are fairly robust. I use in in the shower everyday and has never let me down. I am having some slight issues when pairing them up but will hopefully resolve it soon. (one speaker crackles when paired together).

Ideal for outdoors, barbecues, camping.

Words cant describe how much i love this speaker. Bloody hell its loud and amazing quality. There is absolute minimal distortion in higher volumes and i’ve dropped it a lot and its still in amazing shape. Highly recommend, if you cant afford the newer one.

The sound quality is superb. Some reviews have mentioned disappointment regarding the bass, but i’ve found the bass to be great; it wouldn’t be adequate for a warehouse rave – but in your house , it’s more than adequate. I take this on holiday, on picnics, and camping etc. It’s easily controlled using the megaboom/ultimate ears app on my phone, which comes with various sound equaliser presets (but you can adjust manually). I’ve dropped it and got it soaked and it still works fine. I reckon you could throw it off a cliff and it’d survive the ordeal. The voice interaction fictions (taking calls\tapping a button and saying ‘skip track during playback) leave much to be desired and fall far below the standards set by amazon echo – but it more than competes, if not overshadows the echo on sound quality alone.

Stunning sound amazing speaker – don’t hesitate you’ll be glad you brought it 👍.

Excellent product, would definitely recommend. Great sound quality and a very sturdy, quality design.

Overpriced on here compared to competitors, but a good product nontheless. The speaker is really, really, bombproof. I take it to work on the mountain all the time, leave it in sub zero temps for long periods of time, dropped it a few times, lost it on the van floor, loads of rolling around down there under peoples feet, not a scratch. Almost a waste of money to buy a carry case, as its really hardy on its own.

Not sure what to say, this product is absolutely great. Purchased it after a few reviews to temporarily replace an old mifa speaker that was given to me. Instantly the quality was different, rich, full of range, great bass if you want it and loud enough to enjoy music without damaging your ears. Nice ui and friendly enough but i feel like it needs a bit more ironing out, especially when communicating between phones and laptops.

Good quality speaker system. When working with youtube playlists sometimes the music does not come through.

Good solid sound and easy to use.

Excellent product great value for the money.

Ultimate Ears ultimate ears UE BOOM 2 : amazing sound and battery life

Great quality and sounds awesome. Bluetooth has good distance to as it works fine in my detached garage at the end of my drive, about 20m from the house.

Amazing speaker – no need to go for the mega boom (lots of bass version) as this has great bass and is smaller. A little bulky but sounds amazing and very powerful – and you can pair the speakers too.

Surprisingly good sound in a small, portable and power-durable package.

ultimate ears UE BOOM 2 : Well built (always been impressed by logitech products), charges fast, easy to set up and sounds better than others i have tried. Yes they cost a few quid but find one on a deal and i think it probably is worth the price i paid. At retail there’s a lot of fashion tax. * tap controls are a bit fussy and you often hit the power button, pick up the speaker and hit the whole top of the speaker with a flat palm and it works fine.

Came very quickly in great condition. Havent tested it outside or with water but as a speaker its very loud indoors and sounds great.

I was looking for a good quality loud bluetooth speaker and this product is exactly that. I’d previously read some reviews on this product which mentioned charging issues but i decided to go ahead and purchase it anyways and so far so good no issues. I do not regret purchasing this product at all. Absolutely amazing speaker the battery lasts long and the sound quality is excellent. Overall, if your looking for a decent good looking speaker and you’ve got a spare £100 its definitely worth it.

Amazing sound for a fairly small speaker. Loud volume and no distortion.

Ultimate Ears Megaboom McLaren Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker, My Megaboom

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.

I work in a noisy industry but the megaboom is up to it, it ticks all of my requirements and sounds better than some of my fellow workers players, who prefer to listen to my player with it’s lovely sound range. It doesn’t meet the battery life when played at full power, i got about 8 hours. If you download the app to your mobile you also get ‘alexa’ thrown in which can be a bonus. It beats most competition for size price power.

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.

Comments from buyers

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

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.

It’s volume is really impressive, it’s pretty dam strong, it’s not too big, the base is pretty good, the ue app is useful and you can change the equaliser. Had it for 8 months now and the battery problem other people have had occurred, but after leaving it on charge using the original charger that came with the speaker for a few hours it was fine again. Also, a couple hours to charge and the speaker literally does last up to 20 hours.

I bought the megaboom (mclaren version) for just under £90 over the black friday sale season and it’s fantastic. The sound quality is pretty awesome, and it gets loudone function that i’d forgotten about, is the ability to pair 2 or more ue speakers, using the ue app, to form a play party. Basically, the music plays from all linked speakers at once. Just open the app, link the speakers and play your music via an app such as spotify or deezer and you’re awayhaving used the speaker for just a couple of hours, i can’t report how long the battery lasts, however i’ve got the smaller ue blast and it’s great. If you’re still able to pick up this speaker for £90, don’t even give it a 2nd thought, it’s a genuine bargain.

The reviews were so promising. I really want to like this speaker but its just not that great. If i had paid the £140 – £250 price that some colours seem to go for i would be seriously miffed. I chose the rather garish mclaren one at £89, i don’t really care what colour it is. The build quality seems good an its easy to connect and use. The sound however is less than stellar. The sound is just not as rich as i would have thought. The bass is too thin and the mid tones are down right muddy at higher volumes. Maybe im expecting too much from what is a portable speaker?.

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.

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.

Got this to replace a sonos play 5 – although it didn’t have the same power and range as the sonos it really is an awesome speaker for such a small size with great portability. Easy to use and connects to multiple devices.

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.

Bought this as a speaker for work. I work with a bunch of guys that could pass gorilla’s half the time, nothing lasts. Doesn’t matter where we have taken it, still going strong. Beach, pool, climbing, cycling, all night party. Very robust and the sound is brilliant. It takes probably 10 – 20 hours to break the speaker in before the bass gets going. Once it does it’s awesome, especially considering the size of the thing. It’s obviously the largest boom speaker, but it’s still very portable.

£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.

I bought this to use with a macbook before the apple homepod was available. It’s a very powerful speaker giving clear sound for movies and music. Links easily to apple products. Battery life is excellent and the time to full recharge is quite quick. You can also link more than one speaker together. If you don’t need a smart speaker like the homepod or alex, the ue megaboom is a relatively inexpensive alternative. I had one snag when the speaker simply would not connect – took me a while to figure out that it needed an update – this has to be done via the mobile app.

I’ve been through so many portable speakers and they’re never loud enough, there’s never enough bass and they never last very long. I gave up after a while with portable speakers and then ultimate ears came along. Everything about it – the sound, the design, the shape and size. I really do love my ue speaker. I was reluctant because of the price but it’s truly worth every penny. Side note – i’ve dropped my speaker on the beach before and all i had to do was brush the sand off wth my hand and it was like it never happened. Very robusti can’t think of any downsides to the speaker. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this brand as it is always good to have a brand you can rely on.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I bough this speaker as it had nice battery life and value to the price was also very good in compare to other products. It’s quite loud but louder it gets sound quality is much worse in compare to bose revolvel link however is three times cheaper and i need it at work in noisy environment so that didn’t bother me. My only issue was battery life. First use it died after four hours from full charge but i used that few day after charging so though fair enough. Second time i took it straight off the charger long two days charge and again 4 hours and died. I think it was a faulty model which amazon is going to replace however blaming customer that overcharged its quite poor experience at it means that speaker doesn’t have any safety features to cut off charging while its full.

It is large compared to other bluetooth speakers and produces a good quality sound however i would not reccommend paying the price its listed at as its slightly overpriced. Yes its durable but i found the battery life runs out alot quicker than listed and takes a long time to charge. Overall though i was pleased with the product so i rated it 3 out of 5 stars.

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.

Ue megaboom, 2 speakers, lag present ( on ios ) when in stereo mode bluetooth with 2 speakers with latest firmware as of dec 2017 ( tried older firmware 1. 71 and lag was reduced i think but still too annoying, but it had other issues and bugs and features missing ), it feels a tiny bit laggy with just one speaker but two is impossible to watch video, i think i’ll have to wait for portable airplay 2. 0 devices to come out for this to really work, does any brand support 2 wireless portable speakers in stereo without lag in video?.I mean i expect lag but airplay does a sync so the video delays itself by the same amount making it all appear in sync. So don’t expect to play video with 2 speakers in sync, but then i don’t think any wireless solution exists for this at this time. Sound quality, good but not great but then are any at this size?. They handle 50% volume fine but higher and it distorts – sure to have weaker bass i can accept but to distort so badly is a flaw imo and it should be calibrated to tail off the bass if it cannot handle it, maybe you like your music distorted and just loud though??, maybe that is expecting too much but even with 2 devices they don’t quite get where i want them for music with any kind of punch, the bass at lower volumes doesn’t distort but then is relatively weak unless the speakers are strategically placed in echoey locations say corners of rooms. Design, nice style and soft touch material, cannot plug in external audio or charger without turning device upside down though.

Ultimate Ears Megaboom McLaren Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker, Good outdoor speaker

It’s volume is really impressive, it’s pretty dam strong, it’s not too big, the base is pretty good, the ue app is useful and you can change the equaliser. Had it for 8 months now and the battery problem other people have had occurred, but after leaving it on charge using the original charger that came with the speaker for a few hours it was fine again. Also, a couple hours to charge and the speaker literally does last up to 20 hours.

This thing is rock solid and performs like s total beast. The pairing mode is awesome as it instantly turns a pair into a true stereo setup and if you use the aux jack, a recent update means there’s now zero latency which is real good for musicians. Ue have made another outstanding quality product. Always impressed with their stuff.

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.

Yes its durable but i found the battery life runs out alot quicker than listed and takes a long time to charge. Overall though i was pleased with the product so i rated it 3 out of 5 stars.

This seems a well made, robust speaker and it certainly gets loud. The sound quality is pretty good for something this size but it can seem a bit harsh at high volumes and the bass a little boomy. But, that said, in most situations you wouldn’t need the volume anywhere near maximum. Using the megaboom app i was able to do a firmware update when i first got the speaker but the app seems a little flaky. It won’t always turn the speaker on and the volume controls are sometimes a little slow to work. But it’s not the end of the world and you can obviously use the speaker without the app. I’ve not encountered the charging problems some people have had. I charged it when i first got it and several hours’ use have reduced the battery to about 75%. I would imagine it will last somewhere around 14/15 hours on a charge. For the money this cost me, £89 on a deal, this is a more than decent speaker and worth buying but i’m not sure it’s worth the high price some versions of it are being sold for.

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.

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 .

I spent a good few days reading reviews as they are quite expensive and i wanted 2 of them. I would compare them with a midi stereo system sound/volume so £180 for a pair puts it in the same pricing as said systems. The one downside is the only instructions are h&s and battery disposal with no user manual so everything has to be web searched. Not had them long enough to comment on battery life or durability.

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.

I’ve been through so many portable speakers and they’re never loud enough, there’s never enough bass and they never last very long. I gave up after a while with portable speakers and then ultimate ears came along. Everything about it – the sound, the design, the shape and size. I really do love my ue speaker.

I work in a noisy industry but the megaboom is up to it, it ticks all of my requirements and sounds better than some of my fellow workers players, who prefer to listen to my player with it’s lovely sound range. It doesn’t meet the battery life when played at full power, i got about 8 hours. If you download the app to your mobile you also get ‘alexa’ thrown in which can be a bonus. It beats most competition for size price power.

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.

£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.

Firstly i loved the description, i love my music everywhere and something delicate and pretty was just not going to cut the mustard. Also being able to wash it is a big plusi ordered this beast on wednesday and it arrived 48 hours later. You know the sticky, pain in the face, security stickers?.Yeah well, it has them but they put none sticky tabs on them so it’s easier to open than grabbing the closest knife or scissors. Pull the tab, sticky label just pulls off. Not delicate pretty but durable pretty. All the cables are luminous green /yellow so you will know exactly who stole your charger and they are sturdy too, no flimsy rubbish here. Turning it on, your gran who can’t change the channel?. She will be able to turn it on, it’s that easy. Then the wonderful sound of jungle drums indicates that its on. Honestly, it’s like rolling the dice in a game of jumanji, you know you are in for a wild timebluetooth?.

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.

If you don’t need a smart speaker like the homepod or alex, the ue megaboom is a relatively inexpensive alternative. I had one snag when the speaker simply would not connect – took me a while to figure out that it needed an update – this has to be done via the mobile app.

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.

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.

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.

Ultimate Ears Megablast Bluetooth Speaker : Great Speaker

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.

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.

So i purchased this to replace my megaboom original (not the 3) as i have had my megaboom for about 3 years now and finally its starting to let go (i think one of the speakers has burst as its always at full volume as i use it at work in a loud environment) went for the ‘megablast’ as its the ‘loudest – best speaker by ue’. It is louder by tiny bit but then come the trade offs. The app feels and looks alot clunkier compared to the megaboom (doesn’t constantly display battery life + doesn’t show in 1% increments. Does in 10% chunks) ui is just alot uglier too in my opinionthe ‘alexa’ addition i didn’t really care for because at work i don’t have wifi however i tested at home and from about 3ft away if you are above 50% volume it cannot hear you so its pretty uselessportability. I thought the megaboom was abit chunky but this thing is even worse. Its over 1kg and even bigger. Why they removed this i do not understand.

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.

  • Awesome Bluetooth speaker but glitchy as an Echo device

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 is great only used it for my spotify playlist so far its on a shelf behind my bar in my man cave and people just shout what songs they want to put in the que and it plays them well built and worth every penny i paud for it.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

This speaker really lived up to expectations of the sound quality- so loud. The connection between my phone and the speaker is sometimes poor and they need to be fairly close together to connect sometimes, but the wifi connection is great, and amazon alexa is an added bonus.

Very loud durable speaker great quality sound especially when adjusted in the app and great paired with the alexa function.

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.

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.

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Limited Edition Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker : I have two of these now and I think they’re amazing.

This seems a well made, robust speaker and it certainly gets loud. The sound quality is pretty good for something this size but it can seem a bit harsh at high volumes and the bass a little boomy. But, that said, in most situations you wouldn’t need the volume anywhere near maximum. Using the megaboom app i was able to do a firmware update when i first got the speaker but the app seems a little flaky. It won’t always turn the speaker on and the volume controls are sometimes a little slow to work. But it’s not the end of the world and you can obviously use the speaker without the app. I’ve not encountered the charging problems some people have had. I charged it when i first got it and several hours’ use have reduced the battery to about 75%. I would imagine it will last somewhere around 14/15 hours on a charge. For the money this cost me, £89 on a deal, this is a more than decent speaker and worth buying but i’m not sure it’s worth the high price some versions of it are being sold for.

£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.

I’ve been through so many portable speakers and they’re never loud enough, there’s never enough bass and they never last very long. I gave up after a while with portable speakers and then ultimate ears came along. Everything about it – the sound, the design, the shape and size. I really do love my ue speaker. I was reluctant because of the price but it’s truly worth every penny. Side note – i’ve dropped my speaker on the beach before and all i had to do was brush the sand off wth my hand and it was like it never happened. Very robusti can’t think of any downsides to the speaker. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this brand as it is always good to have a brand you can rely on.

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.

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

I work in a noisy industry but the megaboom is up to it, it ticks all of my requirements and sounds better than some of my fellow workers players, who prefer to listen to my player with it’s lovely sound range. It doesn’t meet the battery life when played at full power, i got about 8 hours. If you download the app to your mobile you also get ‘alexa’ thrown in which can be a bonus. It beats most competition for size price power.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This thing is rock solid and performs like s total beast. The pairing mode is awesome as it instantly turns a pair into a true stereo setup and if you use the aux jack, a recent update means there’s now zero latency which is real good for musicians. Ue have made another outstanding quality product. Always impressed with their stuff.

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.

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.

I bought the megaboom (mclaren version) for just under £90 over the black friday sale season and it’s fantastic. The sound quality is pretty awesome, and it gets loudone function that i’d forgotten about, is the ability to pair 2 or more ue speakers, using the ue app, to form a play party. Basically, the music plays from all linked speakers at once. Just open the app, link the speakers and play your music via an app such as spotify or deezer and you’re awayhaving used the speaker for just a couple of hours, i can’t report how long the battery lasts, however i’ve got the smaller ue blast and it’s great. If you’re still able to pick up this speaker for £90, don’t even give it a 2nd thought, it’s a genuine bargain.

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.

Firstly i loved the description, i love my music everywhere and something delicate and pretty was just not going to cut the mustard. Also being able to wash it is a big plusi ordered this beast on wednesday and it arrived 48 hours later. You know the sticky, pain in the face, security stickers?.Yeah well, it has them but they put none sticky tabs on them so it’s easier to open than grabbing the closest knife or scissors. Pull the tab, sticky label just pulls off. Not delicate pretty but durable pretty. All the cables are luminous green /yellow so you will know exactly who stole your charger and they are sturdy too, no flimsy rubbish here. Turning it on, your gran who can’t change the channel?. She will be able to turn it on, it’s that easy. Then the wonderful sound of jungle drums indicates that its on. Honestly, it’s like rolling the dice in a game of jumanji, you know you are in for a wild timebluetooth?.

I bought this to use with a macbook before the apple homepod was available. It’s a very powerful speaker giving clear sound for movies and music. Links easily to apple products. Battery life is excellent and the time to full recharge is quite quick. You can also link more than one speaker together. If you don’t need a smart speaker like the homepod or alex, the ue megaboom is a relatively inexpensive alternative. I had one snag when the speaker simply would not connect – took me a while to figure out that it needed an update – this has to be done via the mobile app.

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.

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.

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.

Bought this as a speaker for work. I work with a bunch of guys that could pass gorilla’s half the time, nothing lasts. Doesn’t matter where we have taken it, still going strong. Beach, pool, climbing, cycling, all night party. Very robust and the sound is brilliant. It takes probably 10 – 20 hours to break the speaker in before the bass gets going. Once it does it’s awesome, especially considering the size of the thing. It’s obviously the largest boom speaker, but it’s still very portable.

It’s volume is really impressive, it’s pretty dam strong, it’s not too big, the base is pretty good, the ue app is useful and you can change the equaliser. Had it for 8 months now and the battery problem other people have had occurred, but after leaving it on charge using the original charger that came with the speaker for a few hours it was fine again. Also, a couple hours to charge and the speaker literally does last up to 20 hours.

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker – Great speakers

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sound is amazing, absolutely fantastic quality and no distortion at high levels. They look great and are absolutely bomb proofi would have rated 5* but i have one niggle. You can our the two speakers together, the sound is amazing, but the pairing is sporadic. Sometime they our on the first go, sometimes it takes 3 goes. Solid connection when paired.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I think this speaker is great. To be honest i’ve not got much to compare it too but i am really pleased with it. Looks small and that it won’t be up to much but if you want to able to hear your music at a decent level then this is for you. I take mine on holiday and it’s perfect. Easy to connect, lasts for hours and i will be buying another. Haven’t had any problems with it and happy with buy. Arrived on time, well packaged.

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.

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.

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.

Why do brooke think that there is no need for jack input. If you are watching a video from your laptop or any device and you want to use your bluetooth speaker there is a latency. I assumed it will have one in due to owning a previous model.

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.

I use this paired to my laptop. Easy to pair with my chromebook and my windows laptop. Not so easy to pair with debian desktop; but that is not ue’s fault. Could do with more instructions. (why is the ‘reduce volume’ minus sign vertical. Make it look a it like a urn for someone’s ashes).

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Very pleased with this set of 2 speakers which i bought on amazon’s deal of the day for a bargain £79. My only criticism is that they are a little too much on high end (treble), but otherwise they deliver a very decent sound with clear vocals and decent bass. Pairing both was straight forward, but if you struggle there are several instructional videos on you tube. Even at their rrp, these are a good buy and don’t disappoint.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker – IMPRESSED

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

For such a small product, these bluetooth speakers sound simply awesome. Admittedly, they are not going to match a much more expensive product such as an apple homepod but for general kitchen, garden and travel use they certainly fit the bill and look good. Battery life is also good and they connect flawlessly to each other for added sound. Unfortunately they won’t give stereo sound when paired.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Looked around for a while on what to buy, settled on this and it genuinely blew me away. I don’t have a real comparison to make, but i was really impressed at how full the sound was out of one speaker unit. The volume fills a room, the styling is great and it connects to a single phone really well. (avoid trying two phones, its gets messy).

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 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’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.

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.

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.

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker – Great sound, great value

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.

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.

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.

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.

I think this speaker is great. To be honest i’ve not got much to compare it too but i am really pleased with it. Looks small and that it won’t be up to much but if you want to able to hear your music at a decent level then this is for you. I take mine on holiday and it’s perfect. Easy to connect, lasts for hours and i will be buying another. Haven’t had any problems with it and happy with buy. Arrived on time, well packaged.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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’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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very pleased with this set of 2 speakers which i bought on amazon’s deal of the day for a bargain £79. My only criticism is that they are a little too much on high end (treble), but otherwise they deliver a very decent sound with clear vocals and decent bass. Pairing both was straight forward, but if you struggle there are several instructional videos on you tube. Even at their rrp, these are a good buy and don’t disappoint.

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

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.

Sound is amazing, absolutely fantastic quality and no distortion at high levels. They look great and are absolutely bomb proofi would have rated 5* but i have one niggle. You can our the two speakers together, the sound is amazing, but the pairing is sporadic. Sometime they our on the first go, sometimes it takes 3 goes. Solid connection when paired.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I use this paired to my laptop. Easy to pair with my chromebook and my windows laptop. Not so easy to pair with debian desktop; but that is not ue’s fault. Could do with more instructions. (why is the ‘reduce volume’ minus sign vertical. Make it look a it like a urn for someone’s ashes).

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.

Good sound quality for the price. What is terrible, however, is that if you have more than one device paired to the wonderboom speaker, the sound will consistently cut out every x number of seconds. The only solution i’ve found is to make sure you have only one device connected to the wonderboom at a time, meaning you will have to manually disconnect all idle devices (i. I have a few other bluetooth speakers that do not have this problem, and if you’re a person with multiple devices to playing music from, be aware of this issue.

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.

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.

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.

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

Looked around for a while on what to buy, settled on this and it genuinely blew me away. I don’t have a real comparison to make, but i was really impressed at how full the sound was out of one speaker unit. The volume fills a room, the styling is great and it connects to a single phone really well. (avoid trying two phones, its gets messy).

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.

For such a small product, these bluetooth speakers sound simply awesome. Admittedly, they are not going to match a much more expensive product such as an apple homepod but for general kitchen, garden and travel use they certainly fit the bill and look good. Battery life is also good and they connect flawlessly to each other for added sound. Unfortunately they won’t give stereo sound when paired.

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.

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.

Why do brooke think that there is no need for jack input. If you are watching a video from your laptop or any device and you want to use your bluetooth speaker there is a latency. I assumed it will have one in due to owning a previous model.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
