The UE Megaboom is nothing more than a bigger Boom 2, and that qualification alone makes it an easy recommendation. But digging in a little deeper, this plus-sized variation sounds louder and fuller than its smaller next of kin. The larger form factor allows for the battery life to stretch on for 20 hours. The UE Megaboom blasts amazing 360-degree sound with deep, heart-pounding bass in all directions. It is designed to be taken anywhere in any condition with its waterproof and light design. The speaker is equipped with longer-range Bluetooth, and depending on the device it is paired with, it can stream audio from a device up to 100 feet. The speakers also features Siri and Google Now voice integration.
The Megaboom features Bluetooth Smart, which allows the speaker to be turned on or off remotely from the free UE app. That app also allows to pair two speakers together and includes equalization features for tweaking the sound along with an alarm function.
The UE Megaboom might not be as compact as other Bluetooth speakers, but it packs more punch, particularly in the bass department. The sound it delivers is impressive both indoors and outdoors.
