Our take on the Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Bring BIG sound everywhere
The UE MEGABOOM (pictured in blue) is IXP7-certified waterproof, delivers 360° sound, and keeps the party going with 20 hours of battery life.
True to its name, the Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM packs a powerful punch. Your phone or tablet supplies the tunes wirelessly as the speaker pumps out party-fueling 360° sound. It goes all night long with up to 20 hours of battery life. But this beast of a Bluetooth speaker can also travel anywhere.
First off, it weighs less than two pounds. It's also cleverly designed — you can grab and carry the speaker as easily as your favorite beverage. And the UE MEGABOOM is stain-resistant and IPX7-certified waterproof. That means you can enjoy it at the beach, the pool, or even while relaxing in the tub or shower.
Pair up and party with 100 feet of Bluetooth range
While the UE MEGABOOM excels on bass-heavy tracks, this speaker can handle your whole playlist. Just press play. Two 2" full-range drivers cover the highs and mids, while two passive radiators reinforce the low frequencies. Meanwhile, you can just set the speaker down, then move around and mingle. With up to 100 feet of wireless Bluetooth range, you're not tethered to the speaker with your phone.
Listen in stereo or double the volume
Still not enough boom? Wait, really? Okay. With the Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM app for iOS® and Android™, you can stream simultaneously to two MEGABOOMs and nearly double the volume. Or use the app to make them a stereo pair for a really fun listening experience. The app also lets you adjust EQ or set an alarm.
You gonna answer that call?
If someone calls and interrupts the music, you can answer it right on the MEGABOOM. It doubles as a speakerphone. Give your friends directions, ask them to bring more ice, and get back to the tunes. You'll hear the person on the other end clearly, and the MEGABOOM's built-in microphone lets you talk to them with ease.

- Important Information
I've owned the original UE Boom for a while now and love it. Still, I wanted a bit more bottom end when using the speaker in larger spaces and this speaker delivers just that--even without boosting the bass in the EQ. Great sound, great value!

You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, manually enter phone number, and control advanced phone functions.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the UE MegaBoom.
Multi-Device Pairing + NFC: Up to 8 Bluetooth enabled devices can be paired with this unit and up to 3 Bluetooth audio devices can be connected simultaneously in Block Party Mode. Block Party Mode lets you and your friends take turns wirelessly streaming and playing the music you love through the speaker. Android OS 4.0+ devices that have Near Field Communication (NFC) can pair by simply touching the Android device's NFC tag to the MegaBoom speaker's NFC tag. Once paired, the UE MegaBoom will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 100').

- Remote Control: Use the app as a remote control to adjust the volume and power on and off the UE MegaBoom Bluetooth speaker.

The two speakers can be set up so each speaker plays back both left and right channels (Double Sound), or setup so one speaker acts as the left channel and the other plays the right channel (Stereo).

- Siri: To activate Siri, simply press the Bluetooth button on the speaker and you'll hear a tone while the button will blink on/off indicating that Siri is listening. You can then say a command to play your music, dial a phone number, check the weather, etc (commands are based on those supported by Siri).

The UE app must be running in the background on your Android device for this feature to work.

To use Alexa, simply tap (short press) the Bluetooth button on the speaker. You can use Alexa to listen to music from Amazon Music, iHeartRadio and TuneIn as well as get web search results such as sports scores, weather, reports, jokes and Flash Briefings (Click here for the latest Alexa skills). You will need to already have or setup an Amazon Alexa account. If you've previously used Google Voice, activating the Alexa will disable this feature.

Reviews [ riley Dec 14, 2015 ]
I've owned two and have yet to be disappointed! Haven't found another speaker that can beat it. [ Tina Aug 04, 2018 ]
I am going to help work on my niece's beach house. It is three floors of concrete so the wifi does not extend throughout the house. Jess immediately suggested the Ultimate Ears as a great portable unit that can run for long hours off my iPhone. Continued research on the site revealed the UE Megaboom. Since I like to rock out to electric blues and reggae, I wanted maximum music output. This looks like it will serve my needs well!! [ Rusty Jul 17, 2018 ]
Sound quality is excellent. . .battery life is 20 hours. . . $100 off retail price is a great deal. . .can't wait to have it. [ RICHARD Dec 23, 2017 ]

Your recommendation [ S Dec 06, 2016 ]
I chose the Ue megaboom because of the reviews and I listened to it several times. [ R Oct 09, 2016 ]
Purchased 1 to use by the pool as well as indoor listening at my vacation home. I very much enjoyed the sound as well as all my guests I'm keeping 1 for my home and giving 1 to each of my son-in-laws [ Marie Sep 06, 2016 ]

Wanted another. Love the first one! It rocks. [ James Jun 07, 2016 ]
it is the best product in the market [ Jose E Reyes Jan 08, 2016 ]
Excellent product! Sounds great and is really 100% waterproof! Threw it in the lake totally underwater and it does float! Very cool product. Extremely happy. I am going to buy another so I can enjoy true stereo sound. [ James Dec 15, 2015 ]
The sound says it all! Nice color too. [ cesar Dec 11, 2015 ]
18 questions already asked
I've the version before the 2 along with Mega, there is quite a difference. Holds more bass and volume [ GLENWOOD Sep 05, 2017 ]
I have the original UE Boom (not the 2 version) and the MegaBoom. MegaBoom has more bass, and a fuller sound, but I don't know that it is significantly louder (if volume is what you refer to as amount of sound). I prefer listening to the MegaBoom, but actually use the original Boom more since I carry it with me when I travel (doesn't take up much room in suitcase) [ David Sep 05, 2017 ]
It stops blinking green on the top. [ AMY Aug 31, 2017 ]
I don't see why not. It's water proof/resistant. I've used it outside in Chicago during the summer when it's 100% humidity. Haha hope this helps. [ Mario Feb 08, 2017 ]
Yes. Up to 10 of these speakers can be connected. [ Allen Aug 28, 2016 ]
Yes, but the speaker seems to crackle and go in and out at times. You definitely lose some distance when they are both connected. The crazy thing about it is there are times when it connects together real easy and sounds great and others it is horrible. I use mine with an iPhone 6. [ DARRIN Aug 24, 2016 ]
Here is some helpful information from the product page. If you click the blue box that says keep reading you will find this info: With the UE MEGABOOM app for iOS® and AndroidT, you can stream simultaneously to two UE MEGABOOMs and nearly double the volume. Or use the app to make them a stereo pair for a really fun listening experience. The app also lets you adjust EQ or set an alarm. Hope that helps. [ Kenny Aug 24, 2016 ] Staff
I always point the +- at the top towards the audience, but I have not experimented with other orientations. It is multidirectional and fills a large room nicely. An excellent speaker. [ William Jul 16, 2016 ]
IOM anyway you position it it will work just fine [ Mario Jul 15, 2016 ]
Point it at the audience. It has great sound but it will sound differently in different rooms due to acoustics. I've had it up as a tall speaker and on its side. Either way is fine. Experiment with it until you like the sound the most. [ Angela Jul 15, 2016 ]
Doesn't make to big of a difference. I like the - + on The top and the volume away from your audience [ James Jul 15, 2016 ]
Yes, either wirelessly via Bluetooth or through wired connection: "Auxiliary Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the UE MegaBoom is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any audio device with a headphone jack or analog audio output" [ Randy Dec 22, 2016 ]
I have a friend who uses it with iPod and iPhone. [ William Aug 24, 2016 ]
It can be used with any bluetooth device. My teacher has one and uses it with an iPhone and iPad. [ William Jul 16, 2016 ]
If the iPod is wifi compatible it should haven't tried it though [ Victoria Apr 22, 2016 ]
As long as your iPod has Bluetooth [ joseph Apr 22, 2016 ]
it comes with a standard usb cord with a wall plug. So I would say yes as long as you buy a separate cigarette plug. [ Mario Apr 20, 2016 ]
It comes with a USB chord and wall adapter. You could charge it from a lighter, but you would need to buy that separately. [ DARRIN Apr 20, 2016 ]
It comes with a cord that connects via USB to a wall socket charger like an iPhone/iPad. You would have to purchase a cigarette charger to connect via USB to the cord. [ Duane Wren Apr 20, 2016 ]
It has a standard USB charger and cord included. If you use a USB adapter in the cigarette lighter, it will charge. This is an excellent speaker. [ William Apr 20, 2016 ]
I don't think so it has a cord and adapter you have to use. [ James Apr 20, 2016 ]
1 answer Can this be hooked wirelessly to a Samsung smart tv. Would you have to purchase some sort of output device . It has hdmi, digital audio (optical) usb IR out, LAN, and exlink,as well as analog. Hoping for some small link like a flashdrive as it is mounted high on a wall? [ Rachel Mar 01, 2016 ]
No smart tv uses wifi this speaker uses Bluetooth [ James Mar 01, 2016 ]
I really don't think it was designed to float or be submerged in water. [ William Sep 15, 2015 ]
Not sure I would immerse this speaker in water to try it. I will tell you it fell out of my golf cart twice last week going 20 mph and it still works great. [ DARRIN Sep 15, 2015 ]
No it won't float [ James Sep 15, 2015 ]
36w RMS [ James Aug 11, 2015 ]
No, it can't charge devices. [ Taylor May 22, 2015 ]
It will not charge your phone. [ DARRIN May 22, 2015 ]
No the adapter is for charging it wont charge a phone with the mega boom battery [ James May 21, 2015 ]
Yes [ ELAINE May 21, 2015 ]
Unfortunately, no. The UE Megaboom uses a micro USB port for charging, and charging is very quick, but you cannot charge other devices from the UE Megaboom battery. Well, you could, but you'd have to drill some holes and get creative. Oh, and you'd have to void your warranty. ;) [ Dana May 21, 2015 ]
Yes, that is something that can be turned on and off. [ William Aug 24, 2016 ]
Yes, it does. The speakerphone can be turned on or off. [ William Jul 16, 2016 ]
Yes, once your phone is connected via bluetooth, you can use it as a speakerphone. [ William Sep 15, 2015 ]
the UE MEGABOOM does have a speaker phone [ Michael Feb 20, 2015 ]
The UE MegaBoom features an integrated dual microphone so you can use the UE MegaBoom as a wireless speakerphone for your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. The UE MegaBoom will automatically pause the music to let you take your phone call. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, manually enter phone number, and control advanced phone functions. [ Jeff Feb 10, 2015 ] Staff
The plastic case it comes in for shipping is a pretty good carrying case. It probably could use a better carrying case. I've had good luck carrying it for weekend trips in the plastic case it is shipped in [ Jacob Jun 12, 2017 ]
No, a carry case is not included with the UE MEGABOOM.. [ James Jun 11, 2017 ]
Yes, there is a carry case with a handle on one end. However, I only keep the Megaboom in the case for protection. I would not advise 'carrying' the case, as its closure is flimsy and doesn't close properly. I bring the speaker back and forth to our pool, so I put it all in a small gym bag. [ DEMETER S Jun 11, 2017 ]
No, you buy separately. [ STUART K Jun 11, 2017 ]
it comes in a circular box that can be used as a carrying case. [ Roy Jun 11, 2017 ]
I don't have an Echo Dot so I can't answer to that but I can say it has not had any problems connecting to different Bluetooth devices. It is a great speaker. [ LINDA T May 11, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. 3-5/16" diameter x 8-15/16"H and weight: 1.93 lbs.You'll find this information on the product page under "Product Highlights". Hope that helps. [ Kenny Sep 24, 2016 ] Staff
Yes, and it works great. you just need to update the older boom's firmware and download the megaboom app from the app store. [ Alessandro Jun 22, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Krissy Oct 17, 2017 ] Staff
I didn't have to replace it. However, it seems it is no possible because it is sealed for waterproofing. [ Jose E Reyes Mar 20, 2017 ]
Don't think so [ Scott Mar 20, 2017 ]
