What customers say about "Key Specs"
Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
  • I like how good the range from speaker to device is, I have been around the furthest parts of our house before the sound starts to stutter.
  • The Bluetooth range is the best of all of my devices, and it didn’t dropout whilst walking around the house even next to a powerful Wi-Fi router.
  • Sound is great and can be used for many purposes via Bluetooth.
  • Amazing!! Best bluetooth wireless portable speakers around. Great sound quality and the bass is outstanding!
  • Connectivity could not be simpler, just put it in search mode and connect via Bluetooth.
Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • The single speaker has more than enough power and its lightweight too.
  • If you are new to Ultimate ears speakers I think the app is fantastic and the party up feature that allows you to connect to multiple Boom speakers is amazing.
  • I'd connected to my Samsung phone, then easily connected to my MacBook. Connection is very fast and doesn't take much time.
  • Haven’t managed a reliable pairing with my boom 3 speaker either. It’s like playing vinyl that jumps on the turntable.
  • It looks like it stands ok on 30% volume but when i put volume around 60-70% the battery goes on critical immediately!

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
  • Sound quality is decent for the size of the speaker and it benefits from being stood on a hard surface or upright in a corner.
  • This is a midrange speaker from ultimate ears, it’s smaller and lighter than the top of the range one.
  • Really happy with this. Decent sound quality and loud for the size.
  • It's very easy to set up and use. It's about the size of a 440ml can of beer.
  • The size of this is a fractionally bigger than a standard coke can.
Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • The sound is very loud, it's rich and for its size packs some bass. It's so good I use it outside when having a barbecue.
  • It's fairly weighty but not excessively heavy and feels reassuringly solid to hold, as you'd hope given that it's designed to be used outside.
  • It's not too big and not too heavy making it very portable.
  • It’s amazing to carry into different rooms at home and it’s perfect for anytime. It's size fits any design and home interior.
  • It’s too heavy for me to throw into a bag for daily use because it adds extra weight and the bag gets a couple pounds heavier.

What customers say about "Features"
Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
  • There is one large button on the top, called a magic button in the quick start guide, which allows you to skip or replay a track.
  • The speaker comes with its own app complete with graphic equaliser and the ability to connect to 150 speakers whether they are are yours or your friends.
  • The equaliser is a simple five way slide but it is effective.
  • Holding the button to hear how much charge is left is useful. Very pleased.
  • The bass sounded thin, the mid range was muddy and the trable was muffled.
Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • Don’t bother getting the power up dock as battery life is excellent and the charge port is now on the side.
  • The controls are pretty straightforward, with a multi-function button on the top, and a large plus and minus button on the front face.
  • The speaker is supposed to be drop-proof from a height of three feet. I didn't dare try it from that height, but I did drop it on a wooden floor from around two feet and it was fine.
  • It’s waterproof too so you don’t have to worry if the rain catches you by surprise during a barbecue.
  • Doesn't have voice control Alexa which the more expensive does Megablast have.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
  • Set up is easy. Charge with the supplied micro USB cable (no actual charger in the box).
  • It is a tube shape and comes with a flat ribbon style Micro USB charging cable.
  • The speaker comes with a 1m long flat-profile USB charging cable with a micro-USB plug at the end that connects to the speaker.
  • It has a short USB micro cable which needs to be attached to a USB plug. It took a couple of hours to fully charge.
  • The speaker is ready to go out of the box and is easy to lift out of the case with the only other item being a long micro USB for charging.
Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • The UE3 Megaboom is well over what I expected. Firstly, download the app, pair your phone, select your music and off you go.
  • The charging socket is a micro-USB so no need to worry about losing a cable.
  • A nice long USB cable for charging and looks very classy and sleek.
  • They removed the audio jack so now the only way to connect to the speaker is via bluetooth.
  • My one issue is that there is no aux in cable, so only Bluetooth can be used to play music.
