Best out there.

I've had mine for two years now with no issues. I've left it outside overnight numerous times, it's been wet, dropped and it still sounds great (for a bluetooth this size). I bought it for the boat so I wouldn't be routing wires and it lasts all day.

  • from Calgary, AB

Excellent performance over the years

Had this for almost 3 years now, excellent sound, waterproof and floats(actually was dropped in a river and never sunk and worked just fine after!). Also excellent customer service.

Ue megaboom

OK first off im from Canada! I bought 2 off these in St Pete's Florida for 198.99 on sale! It cost me and 50 or 60 dollars more to buy two of these than the cost of one back home in Canada! I exchanged my money at par so I lost nothing lol luck me! Ok now to rate the speaker it self, I love the fact you can pair up alot of speakers to play at once! I find the base pretty good for me anyway and the sound is good as well. It water proof and can float as well I believe. I give this 5 stars!!

  • from Grunthal Manitoba


Came to me broken. Looked faded.. Picture is way brighter then actually speaker.. Wouldnt have bothered me but mine came to me a dud.. Would not turn on.. Will not charge.. Have tried to hold down both buttons to reset but nothing.. Will return and try another.. Then maybe hopefully will change my first impression

Has very little boom

Better options for bass, was dissapointed in volume and boom from this unit. Went jbl and it's much better.

  • from Kitchener, ON

Excellent speaker for job site

This little guy puts out great sound- I use it in my workshop. I can hang this up out of the dust, and its well sealed too. The charge easily lasts a whole day and then some- highly recommended. I got it on sale but it is a good product even at full price.

  • from Calgary, AB

Finally !

before i go too far, i highly suggest that people also consider the Bose Soundlink III. that being said, Bose has nothing on this in terms of music reproduction, presence, bass and clarity . yes it is expensive, yes it is larger than 99% of other speakers, but this is what i suggest you buy, with no hesitation, when you are finally ready for just the best sound on the go, that is available for purchase. 9.5/10, i wish it had more controls for music playback lol. seriously though , unreal, next level sound, clarity even at full volume. buy this when you are ready for the best.

  • from Surrey, BC


Best speaker, if you are willing to pay the price then definitely get this speaker. No regrets!!!

  • from Whitby, ON

Great Product!

Works as described Crystal Clear Great Range Android app works well, love the features Can place it anywhere in the backyard and can hear it well anywhere Played it for 3 hours on 75% volume, battery was at 90% remaining Highly recommended!

mega boom review

Great product my son and daughter all had one and I loved the sound so I got one love the versatility, lay on the deck sync it with my phone, has great range and is virtually indestructible.

  • from Surrey, BC

15 minute turn off is inconvenient

I use it almost daily for presentations however the automatic turn off to save the battery means I have to remember to turn it on again before use. I've forgotten a couple of times which has been embarrassing. Too bad there isn't a way to turn this feature off in settings. Other than that a great speaker - the best water-proof speaker I've used.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Battery not 20 hours

I bought this speaker with the anticipation that the battery would last at least 10 hours, even on full volume. I would take it to beach volleyball tournaments, and by around the 8 hour of using it the battery would die, granted I was using it at close to full volume all day, I expect a speaker to hold it's battery charge for at least half of it's claimed length.

Surround Sound Wherever you Go!!!!

Love the portability of this speaker. It's very simple and easy to use with any devices. The sound quality is generally great although it varies depending on where the speaker is placed. We found it works best when placed in a corner. Battery lasts really well. Downfall is bass quality- the deep bass feature sounds like the music is underwater.

Best Sound For The Money

I was introduced to this product by a friend and was blown away by its quality of sound. I ran out to get my own UE Megaboom and within a couple of months bought a second so I could link the two up for Stereo. Awesome! Range and battery life is really good. With my Ipod or Iphone accompanying my Ultimate Ears I can play it anywhere without the necessity of power. You can't go wrong with this one!

  • from Toronto, ON


Nice upgrade from the basic one.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Awesome speakers

Awesome speakers! Very sturdy and light at the same time. It was raining while I was out with the speakers...didn't care. felt very confident in the water resistant speakers. The sound quality is great, awesome base! You get what you pay for.

  • from Toronto, ON


This little speaker is just simply amazing ! The sound is crispy clear and the bass is top notch ! Its almost like a professional speaker ! so happy with my purchase im ordering another one !!

UE Megaboom

One of my Daily use products and it's one of my favorites ! don't hesitate just buy !

  • from Edmonton, Alberta

Amazing Product

I bought the boom while I was a former employee for a tech store and the MegaBOOM has by far the best sound, range, battery life and aesthetic.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

awesome speaker

This is such an amazing speaker. I use it when I'm camping and quadding. The sound is very good and full. And a great battery life. I've used it in rain, dust, and in the hot sun. And it works as good as when I bought it 4 months ago. And I've used it for very many hours already

  • from Vancouver, BC

This speaker Rocks!

So far I'm loving the sound coming out of these speakers and the ablitiy to connect two at the same time. This is a mobile party!

Ue Megaboom

I have the Harmon Kardon portable speaker which is amazing for sound quality. I compare every speaker to that. The Ue megaboom is more durablr and portable. Love the waterproof feature for vacation purposes and the ability to pair mulitple units. Sound quality is alright, bass is a little lost. Sounds better in the corner where the sound reverbrates off the wall. Perfect for vacations...

Amazing sound

I took my time reading many reviews on the net about the best portable Bluetooth speaker and finally choose UE Megaboom. One of the features i was looking for was the bass and I'm not disappointed at all. The sound has no distortion at high volume and the small EQ that comes with the app is definitely a plus. If you want a better sound you should consider another player as poweramp for android or equalizer for ios as a third party player to get the best of this speaker. The water proof feature was an option that was not a must for me when i was looking to buy one but now i have it i don't regret it at all, the speaker is now near the pool everytime and got kicked a couple of times inside the water and works perfectly. And the speaker phone option is something that you should consider for a exterior speaker. Battery life is amazing i manage to get an average of 15h at medium volume keep in mind that the more you crank the volume the less battery life you're gonna get.

MegaBoom - great portable beats

Used UE MegaBoom speaker at the beach. Fantastic sound and lots of bass. Streamed tunes from Sirius and from my phone and it worked great. Speaker lasted about 10 hours. We hooked it upto a battery charger to keep it going. The waterproof and sturdiness of the speakers are a plus. Definitely best portable speaker compared to Bose or Beats

  • from Chilliwack, BC

amazing speaker not so great battery

Easy to pack around where ever I go, sounds amazing, able to connect up to 8 Bluetooth devices at once and switch between 2 of them simultaneously when switching tracks while listening to music. Battery says 20 hours on a full charge. I've been getting 3 maybe 3.5 at max volume. Otherwise pretty sweet. I recommend it for camping especially.

  • from Edmonton, AB


I couldn't believe the sound that came out of this speaker. It's better than the sound system in my brand new truck! In fact, I may start taking it in my truck to replace the sound system. I bought this for a speaker in my steam shower, and have had no issues with the steam or the shower, so definitely waterproof. The only bad thing I can say is that every so often the audio cuts out through Bluetooth, for a fraction of a second, This definitely surpassed my expectations.

No need for "Ultimate Ears"!

I connected my Blackberry phone to a number of speakers in the store and played the same music every time. It appears that none of the other speakers had the full and crisp sound of this great speaker! Your ears don't need to be ultimate to hear the difference. My GF and I both bought one, she the blue version and of course, I picked the black one. I daisy-chained them together through the UE app, specifically for this speaker, on my (hacked into the Google Play store) Blackberry. This turned them into two stereo speakers with an even greater sound quality. It's very simple to set up, fairly portable (little less than its little brother the "Boom"), not the best but is inherent to its full sound. Great to take into the shower and even swimming pool, since it can even be dunked in the water without a problem, in case of an accident. We bought two mini tripods [...] and screwed them onto these speakers, really looks cool, although the rubber bottom of the speakers makes it solidly standing on all surfaces. The battery life is outstanding. I love this speaker and look forward to taking it out camping, maybe I'll even take my GF ;) I have read many reviews and it appears that its best value is noticed in the open, the 360 sound is supposedly unbelievable. Can't wait!!

Better than Beats and Bose

I was going to buy either the Bose or beats after hearing my friends' but then heard this. Amazing battery life, sound, it's loud, great base and waterproof. Great for on the go. Hard to beat in this price range.
