Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker : Fantastic for the price

Fast delivery and an amazing product. Charges very fast, belts out bass and clear mid-high range tones without loss, and best of all it’s portable.

These are really good they are water resistant and give out a great sound you won’t be disappointed.

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.

Best wireless speaker i’ve ever owned. Volume is ideal for beach, bbqs, parties. I couldn’t be without my 2 now.

  • Great in every aspect. Read review for details.
  • Loud but not that punchy for the size as it distorts at high volume, forget pairing 2 for stereo with video but good for music.
  • Flat sound, weak bass!

Wonderful sound, i use it on my boat, after using i just wash it under the tap to remove the salt water, now over a year off using it this way, still works very well as new. Ps it gets very wet when out on the boat. A great sound and is very loud. Great bass at the same time sounds very clear.

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.

Feels hefty and solidly made. This is the first i’ve had of this type of speaker: so can’t make a comparative assessment.

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.

Great looking speaker, it worked really well for around a week then the charging cable broke and then the sound quality started to deteriorate. It’s going back, hopefully i just had a rogue one.

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.

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.

I did almost a month research before buying this product. Crystal clear sound, fabulous battery backup, shockproof, well designed.

Bought for a choir to play backing tracks to rehearse with, plus possibly the occasional performance. Did my research and am pleased it ticks all the boxes. If anything i’d like it to be louder. Purple colour is awesome as matches our choir branding :-).

For the price, getting a waterproof, shockproof speaker that produces great sound at all ranges and produces great volume even in a packed room. The function that you can pair with other devices is fa tasting for parties and the app is easy to use. Only down side is that when high volume the bass struggles to keep up. However this happens with most sub £300 speakers.

Have had this product for a few weeks now and i am loving it. It’s got a great sound stage, clear vocalls, good highs and mids and an above average lows ( bass ). Huge battery, water proof, long bluetooth connection range. Works amazingly well with the ue megaboom app and and all round brilliant speaker .

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.

Just received the product today. It’s great when it s paired to a phone. However when it s paired to my pc (w7), the volume is much lower. I cant reach the same volume with my pc. I ve reinstalled the bluetooth driver, put to 100% , still the volume is lower than when it s paired to a phone. I ve tested on others pc, same issue. Does anybody encounter this problem ?.

Excellent sound and clear quite impressed what comes out of that box classical to rok piano anything comes out great. I am impressed so far got 2 months now works perfect.

I love this speaker, which brings music to where you want it. Good volume, battery lasts about 5 hours, maybe a bit more, and sounds good. If buying again i would go for the ones with amazon alexa capability though.

Very recently bought the monitor audio, which is good but doesn’t mooooove me. Read some reviews, took a punt. This device is another league. Equally happy with scarlatti or electroswing.

Not as loud as i wanted for outdoors. Has about a 20 foot range of sound outdoor. Great sound and easy link up.

Brilliant sound from this little speaker. Shockingly good quality and capable of being very loud – with no distortion. Build quality is also superb. The app also works great – in fact everything works greatunfortunately my unit became faulty after a few months, however. I contacted ue who guided me through some reset procedures, but after this failed was advised to send it back for a replacement. Amazon did so with absolutely no quibble. I was seriously impressed by this – especially as the replacement arrived the next day – before i’d even sent the faulty one backvery minimal inconvenience.

  1. Disappointingly i don’t think this is any louder than my original ue boom, just bigger. I sat & compared the two & it just made no difference.

    While the price on this listing seems to fluctuate wildly, (£82-£249 that i’ve seen) i got a good deal on black friday, and am very impressed with both the sound quality and the volume of this beautifully designed speaker.

    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 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.

    • Great sound quality and the ability to pair with other ue speakers is quality, but have had it one day and it continually cuts out for a second or a 2 throughout songs. This happens nearly 10 15 times a song and is very annoying considering the price tag. Will be contacting support for help to resolve the issue.

    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.

      • This speaker is incredibly light weight & has a surprising amount of power. Perfect for jobs or leisure when you are changing location often.

    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.
