Being the big brother of the successful Mini Boom and Boom wireless speakers, Ultimate Ears (UE) MEGABOOM Portable Wireless Speaker does not disappoint.
Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM are available in 5 colors, Cityscape Black, Plum, Charcoal Black, Lava Red and electric Blue. The rubberized matte finishing material gives the speaker the shockproof characteristic and is pretty scratch proof as well.
NFC, Bluetooth and the UE App offer vast range of connectivity and playback possibilities. Link up 2 x MEGABOOMs to get stereo sound or be creative – play with 2 independent sound settings. The UE App gives you access to the UE’s sound settings. There are 4 presets to choose from: The Standard, Voices, Bass Jump, and Cramped Spaces. With the Standard setting, the sound of Megaboom is expansive and detailed across all ranges. We were amazed by the amount of bass produced by MEGABOOM despite its relatively compact form factor.
You get 20 hours of 20 hours of uninterrupoted playback with a full charge. It also has built-in microphone for phone calls. MEGABOOM is a pretty nice and complete package.
If you do not require the shockproof and waterproof features, then take a look at the designer touched Bowers & Wilkins T7 Burberry Edition, and the upscale Bang & Olufsen B&O PLAY Beoplay A2.
