About the Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3

Bigger, badder bass

“The bass is more than I could have imagined!” That's what one of our customers said about the original MEGABOOM. Well, imagine even more bass. The re-designed Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 delivers fuller, richer lows than the original. And with up to 90 dB of volume, it can really pack a punch.

This speaker can withstand submersion down to three feet for up to 30 minutes. And with a 20-hour built-in battery, it might just outlast your party.

The Ultimate Ears POWER UP charging dock is available for easier charging.

App control

The Ultimate Ears BOOM & MEGABOOM app gives you lots of options for your speaker. In the aptly named #PartyUp mode, you can stream simultaneously to up to 150 compatible Ultimate Ear speakers. Party up indeed!

You can also simultaneously pair two devices, so you and a friend can co-DJ. The app lets you adjust your speaker's EQ settings. Even use it as your wake-up alarm with tunes from Pandora® or Spotify® Premium.

One-touch Magic Button

With a wireless pairing range of up to 150 feet, there may be times when you're much closer to your MEGABOOM 3 than the smartphone that's playing the music. For those times, the single top-mounted Magic Button lets you pause, play, and skip tunes. If you're streaming from an iPhone® or iPad® you can even cycle through preset Apple Music® and Deezer® Premium playlists with just that one button.

Previously purchased the UE Boom 2. Friends were so impressed with it, it turned out to be the perfect gift. With the reviews of the UE Boom 3 and MegaBoom 3, I had to upgrade.

Lindsey, I cannot answer as never had a Megaboom, but can tell you very satisfied including comparing to my Sonos 3s. Dale
[ Dale  Dec 15, 2018 ]
A
The Megaboom 3 has spectacular sound and I'm really enjoying it. I can't answer the question as this is the first megaboom I've owned. The 3 is worth the money spent.
[ BRUCE  Dec 15, 2018 ]
A
I have old one and I just brought the latest one. They both still sound great and the new mega boom seems to sound better. I have paired them together and wow they broke the sound barrier.
[ Gilbert  Dec 15, 2018 ]
A
I have both. In terms of sound there are almost identical with the 3 heading a bit more towards clarity and the original more to bass. I like the hook tonput it hanging on the 3 better. The original has a hook on the underside. One advantage of the original is that it has a plug to connect a 1/8" cable which I use in my projector for outdoor movie night. The 3 is strictly bluetooth.
[ Jose  Dec 14, 2018 ]
A
I have no knowledge of the original mega boom. The sound is crisp on the mega boom 3. The bass is so so. It works for me for what I am using it for.
[ Marlice  Dec 14, 2018 ]
A
I only upgraded because I lost my original megaboom. If you still have the original megaboom, stick to it. I feel the original was a bit louder, but megaboom3 has a bit more bass imo. The app could use a refresh, currently on android phone and do not have deezer account. I just have Amazon Music, Spotify, and Pandora.
[ Mark Angelo  Dec 14, 2018 ]
