More Information

Start (and keep) the party going anytime, anywhere
  • Bluetooth 3.0 lets you wirelessly connect to your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-enabled device within a 100-foot range so you can stream high-energy beats.
  • NFC technology allows you to pair your NFC-compatible device with a simple tap. Still use an iPod or MP3 player? Use the 3.5mm audio output to connect music players without Bluetooth or NFC.
  • IPX7-rated protection means this rugged speaker is waterproof (can be immersed in water up to 1 metre for up to 30 minutes), dirt-proof, and shockproof. Take it to the beach, campsite, pool party, or wherever your wild adventures take you.
  • The reliable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 20 hours, allowing you to keep the groovy dance tunes going until the sun comes up. Press the + and – buttons together at any time to see how much juice is left.
  • The battery fully recharges in as little as 2.5 hours thanks to speedy micro USB charging. Just because the battery is out doesn’t mean the party is over.
Insanely good sound
  • Two 2-inch drivers, two 2-inch x 4-inch passive radiators, and advanced digital signal processing produce 360-degree sound so you can blast heart-pounding bass and crisp high notes in any direction.
  • Tap the top of the speaker once to play or pause, and twice to skip tracks. Use the companion app on your smartphone to turn it on remotely or activate special features like musical alarm and tap controls.
  • Five-band equalizer gives you ultimate control. Custom-tune the sound that's right for you and enjoy the perfect amount of bass, mids, and highs.
  • Built-in speakerphone offers crystal-clear conversation and makes it easy to answer calls without having to fumble for your phone.
Expand your system with the UE app
  • Block Party lets you and 2 friends play DJ all night long. This handy feature allows 3 people to connect to a single UE MEGABOOM and use a variety of music services to share songs through the same speaker.
  • Wirelessly connect a second UE speaker with Double Up and amplify the listening experience when more friends come to crash the fiesta. Use the app to control the balance and to pick between stereo or double sound.

FABULOUS! My search is over.

Worth the price. I've been through numerous different brands and types of blue tooth speakers. My search is over. This is the Number 1 blue tooth speaker of all time! Amazing sound. If you're looking for a loud party speaker this is the one! Also I am amazed that it floats :). Cheers!

Glad I bought this instead of a Bose mini

I was looking for a portable speaker and as everyone in the kitchen had Bose speakers I wanted to be different and buy something else and I am so glad I picked the UE Megaboom it is fantastic the sound is better than the Bose . I was so impressed that I bought a second Megaboom and have paired them up and I get Crazy Great Sound from them both and have people in camp questioning the quality of sound from there Bose speakers ...... I would recommend this product to anyone ..... just go buy one and see for yourself !!!! I give this speaker a 5 star rating.

Expensive, but worth it!

Great sound from a Pringles-sized package. The battery lasts forever. I had no trouble pairing the speaker with my iPhone and my Windows 10 PC. The (optional, no-cost) iPhone app was easy to use and great for adjusting the sound equalizer. Why only 4 stars then? The first one I purchased refused to charge the battery. Best Buy shipped me a replacement and I've been happy ever since.

Unexpected Surprise

As a retired person, I was urged by my 30something son to purchase this for my use as a drum teacher. I expected a lot of instructions, connecting to this and that with passwords and whatever and this doesn't work after all that....and I have to call him again..... Imagine my surprise when I got it all set up and it worked! I am delighted with its appearance, its sturdy case for my travels, and of course, the sound quality. I like the friendly little noises it makes. And, I really appreciate the automatic shut off. It is small enough to use at my desk and yet strong enough for a group to hear. And it is eye-catching. All in all I am delighted, absolutely with this product! Thank-you, son!

Impressive

I got this for Christmas so I haven't had that long. BUT when I put the megaboom up against my Bose sound link (which I also own) I must say I like the sound the megaboom puts out better. As for the actual volume I would say they are really close to each other. I just the like the megaboom better and won't be worried when I take it to the beach. The app pretty nice too.

Essential Beach Accessory!

Had the UE BOOM first and now upgraded to the MEGABOOM, I love the sound quality. Bought a 2nd one to test out the DOUBLE UP Feature, and that is amazing. My only issue is the battery life, states up to 20 hours of battery life. But ACTUAL BATTERY LIFE at Full Volume(at the Beach) and high frequency music, the battery only lasts maybe 4-5 hours. That's only half my day at the beach... I've adapted and have to bring with me a portable battery charger to recharge midway through.
