Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

I'm not trying to use *ANY* special features and that error message will suddenly interrupt my book (when no one touched the phone or the speaker) at random intervals.

The UE Boom App also is an extra bonus, because you can use it to monitor the battery life of the speaker, and from what I am reading you can use the App to facilitate connection to more than one speaker at the same time, which is something you cannot do with a basic one-to-one Bluetooth smart phone to speaker connection.

It also doesnt allow me to access Amazon music on my phone.

I use it primarily to listen to audiobooks, and I have been trying to carry it around with me through the house as I do chores, while leaving my phone plugged into one spot .

You can only connect they another phone.

We really like and have it hooked to an old iPhone as a designated phone for music in our room.

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

Perfect for around the house, at the pool or on a camping trip.

So plan on taking some extras with you for that tailgate, or pool party- its what the Party Up feature is for!

We're talking about portable speakers you can really kick around, toss around, and drop in the pool monkey around - and still manage to sound better than other outdoor portable speakers.

It's simple and easy to use and waterproof, so I am not nervous using it around the tub, pool and while cooking (ever spilled wine on a speaker?

They work in the shower and tub and around the pool.

Waterproof is a huge plus, as this means I won't worry if my daughter takes it out by the pool.



Reviews around half volume (1.7/5)

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

On half volume it lasts a whole day.

Battery life seem good, although I only ran it half volume (still very loud), for about 3 hours, and still had 86% battery left, so I think I could very close to 20 hours on the battery if I let it run that long.

Its just a little bigger than my coffee cup!The speaker ships in a tough and attractive box with an outer sleeve, and a very nicely designed inner box which would make this a very nice gift!Overall this is an impressive and powerful speaker with great sound, excellent battery life and a very small form factor.

This speaker is easy to connect and has a pretty good sound.

In summary, a great speaker that sounds good, looks good and will perform great in home or outside.

Bottom line, this is a very good speaker.

The sound out of this speaker is really good.

This speaker sounds great and has killer bass.

Reviews around room (3.4/5)

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

In my home, it fills every room I've used it in beautifully.

But even having one, it does a great job of filling a room with music.

To top it off, this speaker is attractive and can provide 360-degree sound simply by placing it in the middle of a room.

It radiates sound in 360 degrees, so that it disperses evenly throughout a room.

I also find that it seems to struggle with the connection if I simply go into another room , so maybe the huge Bluetooth range they advertise only works if you're outside or something.

It is clear if you put in in the center of the room, the sound comes out more than one side of the speaker.

In summary, a great speaker that sounds good, looks good and will perform great in home or outside.

In my home, it fills every room I've used it in beautifully.

I purchased the dock and attached a photo to show how much more convenient and elegant the speakers are when at home.

I did come home to my daughter BLASTING the house with this thing, so I know it's capable of very full volume.

The Blutooth signal has a good long range - I've left my tablet inside on a table, taken the speaker outside my home and walked around the yard without losing the connection.

I can go anywhere in my home without losing signal, and even out into the yard.



Reviews around hours (2.0/5)

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

On max volume it lasts between 4 and 5 hours.

At about 4 hours in, the speaker died, and I was incredibly embarrassed and upset, as we were only about halfway in to our tailgate.

The manufacturer is touting a 20-hour party until you drop durability, but really you know any music played at party levels will only warrant a few short hours of use.

Been using it for 5 hours today and it's only lost 5% battery.

BATTERYAround the house, I use this a few hours a day and charge it once a week.

With solid waterproofing and a battery that will keep it playing, once fully charged, for almost 20 hours, it is as much - no .

Great battery life beautiful color amazing sound fast charging time high quality charger included.

The battery life is very good at moderate volumes - I've come close to the promised 20 hours with standard household use.

Think the main selling point is the battery life and waterproof.

The battery life is something to be desired.

Reviews around app (3.8/5)
( 22 )

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

The fact that there is an APP available for it by which the speaker's EQ settings can be adjusted as it streams and can control whatever you are streaming from your device (I am using an iPhone6s with wonderfully user-friendly and effective results. )

The Megaboom 3 is simple to use, has an app, and sounds great.

It pairs easily and has a useful app for tuning the sound and combining multiple UE Booms into one set.

The software app is a quick download.

The app is easy to navigate and simple.

The app has lots of technical for the control freak in your family like my husband is when it comes to electronics.

Pros:* Very good sound quality.

Great battery life beautiful color amazing sound fast charging time high quality charger included.

It was fine, filled the space with enough sound (though as the crowd filled in, the other tailgate's speakers eventually could be heard), and had pretty good audio quality.

Sound quality wise it really is very good.

Awesome sound quality, nice size not too big and not too small.

My ears are calibrated to view the sound quality as good as needed.

I'm not trying to use *ANY* special features and that error message will suddenly interrupt my book (when no one touched the phone or the speaker) at random intervals.

I also don't like that I pretty much have to download an app onto my phone, since the speaker keeps giving me an error message, "To use this feature, please make sure the app is downloaded and running. "

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

The Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) is one of the best looking, best designed Bluetooth speakers I have seen yet.

We already own the original Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM, and we love it.

The Megaboom 3 is simple to use, has an app, and sounds great.

I already own the first version of MEGABOOM and this one is of equally high quality.

I understand that you can pair these up with other MEGABOOM 3's to (a) get a fuller sound and (b) get stereo sound.

The Ultimate Ears Megaboom isn't kidding - this thing packs a punch!

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

5 total for me I do absolutely love this UE megaboom 3

This UE Megaboom 3 allows me to toss it in my bag and take it on a trip without fear of damage.

The MEGABOOM 3 is expensive compared to other speakers of the same size and features, and for the price UE should have included the Power Up Charging Dock, instead of charging an extra 40 bucks for it.

Also, it can be charged while being used - so if you leave it plugged into a USB port, it is always fully charged and ready to go to wherever you want/need it to be.

I have an older Boom that is annoying because the USB port is on the bottom so you can't leave it plugged in.



Reviews around volume (2.9/5)
( 28 )

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Waterproof) — Lagoon Blue

Good volume range, can play quiet, or pretty loud.

The mega boom seems to have crisper highs and clear mids at full volume where as the charge 3 distorts somewhat at full volume especially with dinamic music playing.

And it floats!USEThere's a little trap door in the back where you plug the speaker in to charge, three buttons on the top that you can access by feel, and two volume buttons on the front.

Unless you are listening on full volume, it lasts a long time, sounds great and is totally portable.

It’s has a beautiful design, the sound could be a little better when it’s full volume

I have to admit, it took me awhile to figure out how the volume buttons work on the speaker.

I have to admit, it took me awhile to figure out how the volume buttons work on the speaker.

* Simple to use with large prominent volume buttons.

The power, pairing, and magic button are built into the rubber capped end and the volume buttons are built into rubberized + and - buttons on the side.

I haven't cranked it past a middle volume yet, and at these levels, the only difference I can tell is that the MEGABOOM 3 sounds a little more expansive, because they removed the wide strip behind the large volume buttons that blocked some of the sound in the original MEGABOOM.

The volume control is odd because it is linked to my iPhone buttons when in the app but disconnects when out of the app resetting to the Bluetooth volume controls.

To top it off, this speaker is attractive and can provide 360-degree sound simply by placing it in the middle of a room.

I no longer have to wash the car in silence; the waterproof MEGABOOM has sat on top of the car for years' worth of washes, getting soaped and sprayed along with the car.

It's a small puck that acts as a coaster for select products including this Megaboom 3 to sit on top.

* Can create and skip through playlist via the app and the "magic button" on the top of the speaker.

* Can create and skip through playlist via the app and the "magic button" on the top of the speaker.

With the Magic Button, the MEGABOOM 3 gives you more traditional control over playing music from your mobile device or any music service.

On top of the speaker is a new "Magic Button" that allows easier music control than the original MEGABOOM.

The magic button can be used to play, pause, and skip to the next track.

The Ultimate Ears Megaboom isn't kidding - this thing packs a punch!

To me, this Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker acts like a BOSE speaker.

If you don't know who Ultimate Ears is, they have been the 800-pound gorilla of rugged Bluetooth wireless speakers since the beginning.

While Ultimate Ears has a reputation for creating great sounding audio devices for the portable market, people have an expectation that it should sound audiophile-grade.

I did come home to my daughter BLASTING the house with this thing, so I know it's capable of very full volume.

At full volume the speaker lasted me for 3hrs plus it’s not even loud compare to the JBL Xtreme which is much better.

That said, I've not tested the battery life at full volume because, frankly, I don't play music at full volume anymore.

In fact, it sounds a lot like the original MEGABOOM.

The original MEGABOOM required that you pick up the speaker and tap the top of it once or twice to pause, resume, or skip tracks.

On top of the speaker is a new "Magic Button" that allows easier music control than the original MEGABOOM.
