Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 Review


The first Ultimate Ears Boom was a landmark audio product when it launched back in 2014. At a time when Bluetooth speakers were just beginning to flood the market, it stood out with its 360-degree sound and rugged form factor. Soon after came the...

Energetic, entertaining sound 360-degree delivery Good battery life Rugged but attractive design New play/playlist button

No 3.5mm input

Not bigger but definitely better – the Megaboom 3 is probably the best speaker Ultimate Ears has released so far.

UE Megaboom 3 review


The UE Megaboom 3 strikes an excellent compromise of portability, power, and sound quality in its class. Sure, some speakers around the same price like the LG PK7 sound even better, but it's huge and cumbersome to carry around. Ultra portable speakers...

Class-leading battery life Gets incredibly loud Punchy sound

Recessed mids Bass sounds loose at high volume Charging dock not included

The UE Megaboom 3 doesn’t stray from the company’s tried and true formula but it doesn’t have to. The Megaboom 3 is one of the best waterproof speakers you can buy thanks to its rugged design, long battery life, and audio performance, plus the new DJ...

Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 review


More life-proof, better looking, better sounding, cheaper… is the latest Megaboom the ultimate portable Bluetooth speaker?

Waterproof, dustproof (IP67 rated) and also floats ; Improved controls and charging port ; Excellent value for money ; Loud, clear, bassy audio performance

If we're nitpicking, the sound is still good rather than great

Ultimate Ears UE Megaboom 3 review: Booming excellence


The biggest Ultimate Ears portable Bluetooth is back with a bang... and a smaller price tag. Here's why the Megaboom 3 is among the best money can buy

Great design ; Waterproof and dustproof ; Brilliant sound quality ; Great battery life ; It floats in water ; Boosts bass compared to original model (yay!)

Power Up charging dock not included ; Magic Button playlist feature currently limited ; Won't pair in stereo with original Megaboom (boo!)

There might be a significant number of Bluetooth devices on the market these days but the Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 continues to hold its ground as one of the best.

Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 review


Surprise! An already great Bluetooth speaker is now even better

Bassier than before ; So very loud ; IP67 makes it even more durable ; PartyUp is a great (if a little terrifying) feature ; Magic Button isn’t magic, but we’re glad it’s there

No Spotify playlists ; No USB-C ; We miss the volume strap

Tough, loud and bags of fun. Ultimate Ears’ hot streak continues

Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 review: A floating Bluetooth speaker with plenty of style


The Megaboom 3 is an Ultimate Ears cylindrical speaker that floats, and it's brilliant

Waterproof (IP67) and floats ; Sumptuous design ; Integrates with streaming services over Bluetooth

Doesn’t sound as good as the UE Megablast ; No Bluetooth aptX support

If you’ve got a budget of around £200 and you’re looking for a waterproof speaker, it’s up to you to decide what you value more. At the time of writing, both the Megablast and Megaboom 3 are similarly priced at £180 and £170, respectively and they’re...

Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 review


With 20 hours of battery life, dust/waterproof design, and loud, punchy sound, we've never been more confident in a portable Bluetooth speaker than we are in the Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3. With its third generation of Megaboom, Ultimate Ears wisely...

Loud, dynamic sound Easy to use Waterproof Great battery life

Some functionality only supports Apple Music/Deezer

Yes. If you’re in the market for a Bluetooth speaker that you can consistently rely on for big volume, great battery life, and go-anywhere performance, the Megaboom is one of the best you’ll find.

Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 review: Once More With Feeling


Despite being one of the biggest names in the party speaker space, Ultimate Ears Megaboom 3 still manages to meet expectations.

Nicer design

Magic Button is limited by service ; No major improvements

UE Megaboom 3 Review: The New Bluetooth Speaker to Beat


The UE Megaboom 3 has what you want in a portable Bluetooth speaker: good sound quality, long battery life, ruggedness and more.

Big bass and full vocals ; Good battery life ; Waterproof ; Can pair with older Megaboom and Boom models for stereo sound

Big and heavy for a portable ; No speakerphone

If you plan to take your speaker with you a lot, this one may be too big. In that case, the $130 UE Boom 3 might be a better match. On the other hand, if you don't ever plan to move your speaker, you can get better sound from larger (and more...
