This speaker is larger it measures (8.9″ H x 3.3″ D). The Power and Bluetooth buttons of the Megaboom are located on the top of the speaker and illuminate white when activated. When the speaker is low on battery the power LED will shine red.

The other end of the Megaboom has a black metal D-ring for portability that can be removed from the bottom of the speaker revealing a threaded area which allows you to mount the speaker on a tripod.

Removing the D-ring also allows you to remove the Weather Door cover that protects the micro-USB and 3.5mm aux audio-in ports.

Pairing the UE Megaboom is fairly simple. After turning it on, just press and hold the Bluetooth button to enter pairing mode. Then either pair from the Bluetooth menu on your device or tap your NFC-enabled device below the + and – buttons to pair without the need for a menu. If you’d prefer to go the wired route, there is a 3.5 mm jack on the bottom, though this renders the Megaboom’s 360 degree sound somewhat less effective.

The Megaboom is controlled by four buttons and a freely downloadable app for both iOS and Android. On top of the speaker there are two buttons: the power button and the aforementioned Bluetooth button.

Sound Quality:

One of the greatest features of the original Boom was the battery life. The UE Megaboom claims up to 20 hours of playback and unlike the original, we often saw more than that in testing, closer to 22 hours.

Battery Life:

Where the UE MEGABOOM truly shines is its phenomenal battery life. We found that the speaker could last for over 55 hours of continuous playtime at just 30% volume. When we used the speaker outdoors at 75% volume for 5 hours, we found that the speaker still had an 80% charge remaining. In short, this is probably the best Bluetooth speaker available with the longest battery life.
