was waiting for the boom, never happened

I have read great reviews about these speakers but was sad that they really aren't so great. Great battery life, full 360 sound but lacking bass. Personally I find the Bose portables less experience and much better sound. But their battery lives aren't as good as these. I do like that you can link 2 up and have a right and left playing music, but the lack of bass bothers me. Even on sale I found these pricey for what they do.

Great device! Bluetooth is finicky sometimes, but overall great bass and solid sound

Great device! Bluetooth is finicky sometimes, but overall great bass and solid sound. I have 2 UE Boom2 and they are great. But the UE Megaboom blows them out of the water in terms of sound quality and base. pairing all 3 together in PartyUp mode really packs a punch. I often bring mine to parties and pair them with my friends' Megabooms and we're loving the quality. Sometimes the PartyUP connectivity is finicky and the app can take a while to recognize and pair devices, but individually, and eventually collectively, this is a great speaker.

Over priced for the quality

This speaker crackled upon first use mutilple times when turning off and on & just in between changing songs too... super dissapointing for being brand new. The bass also is not what it's made out to be at all. Surprised so many people thought it was great....I expected more out of it for the price. I will be purchasing a JBL extreme and from reviews on YouTube that one proves to be better. If you want more bass out of a speaker go with a different option.

Mega boom mega great!

Did some extensive comparisons and this one won for several reasons. It's great range, great battery life and fully waterproof are reasons enough, but it's sound is phenomenal and impressed everyone at a recent weekend party! My son was so impressed he was desperate to get one for his new home, but we beat him to the punch and got him one for his birthday. He is stoked!

Awesome Speaker!

There aren't many products that are so outstanding that I feel the need to write a review about but this speaker is one of them. A powerful speaker with great sound and good bass. Combine that with an app that allows you to adjust volume and customize the equalizer, you have a winning combination. This speaker worked great at a summer bbq with a gathering of 30+. Everyone thought music was belting out of the stereo system that was hooked up. This little speaker was a real conversation starter. Hands down, this speaker comes highly recommended.

UE Megaboom

I love this speaker. It is very strong and durable. Sound quality is amazing. Im a sucker for bass so it could be a little better. Being water proof helps my worries go down a lot more. Batter life is superb, barely charge it and it lasts for a long time. You wont be dissapionted buying this great product.

Great speaker

Sound is far better than what you'd expect from a battery-powered, Bluetooth speaker. I get 30+ hours of battery life out of it, and find myself using it every day.
