Excellent Gift

I got this as a gift from my cousin 2 years ago while she was visiting me from the states. I gotta admit I fell in love with it right after I unwrapped the gift for its compact size and unique purple colour. The bass and clarity is amazingly a beast for what this type of portable speakers can produce. I've been using this speaker on a regular basis and have been bringing it to all of my vacation trips. I've been receiving a lot of compliments from both friends and family. Super fast charging battery that actually lasted long too! Bottom line, this is one of my favourite audio equipments that I possessed for its quality, convenient, and unique. I didn't care so much about waterproof since i won't be ever swimming with any electronics in water. :D Highly recommended

Awesome Speaker On The Go

When the first Boom speakers came out, I bought one just to see how it was. I liked it so much that when I went on vacation and forgot it, I went and bought a second one. I love being able to pair them up and spread the sound, or to carry the second one for when the first battery dies. Perfect for vacations (swim up bars :-)) camping, golf, or a back yard BBQ, just to mention a few spots I love to take mine. Everywhere I go, people are amazed at the sound that comes out of such a small speaker. This Boxing Day, my cousin asked me if the speakers that went on sale were the same ones that I had camping this summer, as he was going to buy a pair if they were. They were, and I didn't even think twice. I bought the newer, larger version, and have been in love all over again. Granted, the bass is a bit weak, albeit a much welcomed improvement over the originals, but for a portable speaker, I can't complain. It sounds great (either the UE Boom or Megaboom, for that matter) in small rooms, paired up in medium sized rooms, or if you are close to the speaker in the open. The battery life in the smaller ones is about 4-6 hours at full volume, we play a game of golf with them and have battery to spare. I have yet to put the run in on the larger one, but I am expecting that it will be a fair bit longer. The added size of the larger speaker does detract from it's portability, but not enough to make it prohibitive. There is also a significant improvement in the bluetooth range, as the originals would start clipping at about 25'. The larger one stay connected from anywhere in my house, upstairs or down. As an impulse buyer with an easily frustrated wife, I tend to buy things that I don't use very often. Even she was on board with me buying the larger version, as she says it one of the few things I bought I use all the time. My advice, if the choice came down to one Megaboom or two regular booms, I would opt for the pair. It would be about the same price, but the versatility of the pair outweighs the better sound and battery life of a single larger one. I, for one, will be buying a second Megaboom when the finances allow it.
