*BADUM BADUM TUSH* A short drum roll is the noise that plays when you first turn on the UE MEGABOOM—a noise that I am now completely obsessed with—an apt greeting for the powerful sound that comes from Logitech’s Ultimate Ears newest member in its family of portable Bluetooth speakers, released earlier this January.

The UE MEGABOOM is the big daddy version of the UE BOOM that boasts many updated features of the original:

  • 360-Degree Sound – Blasts loud “freakishly amazing” sound in every direction
  • Durability – Stain and water-resistant acoustic skin (IPX7 certified)
  • Versatile/Portable Size and Shape – Can stand up, lay down, be clipped onto a hook; compact and light enough to be brought anywhere
  • Rechargeable Battery – Long lasting 20 hour battery life
  • Wireless Bluetooth Capability – Play and control music from up to 100 ft away; two Bluetooth devices can be connected to play b2b music with friends
  • Speakerphone – Take and project calls hands-free
  • Stereo or Double – Two UE MEGA/BOOMs can be used together to play as a studio pair or double the sound of the same music
  • App Features – Customizable speaker settings including a wake up alarm

Given these impressive specs, we decided to test the UE MEGABOOM in our Los Angeles HQ for ourselves to see if it could lived up to the hype. *queue another drumroll*

THE LOOK

From the outside, the speaker comes in a protective canister that has nifty compartments to stash it’s fluorescent yellow USB charger and cord. THE PLUG. Cracking the case open unveils the UE MEGABOOM’s sleek, cylindrical design that resembles a tall 40 oz. can of beer from the future. Cool Factor Level: One Hunnid. We got the charcoal color with cobalt accents, which looks great in our modern meets mid-century office/studio, but with a whole spectrum of UE MEGABOOM colorways available there’s definitely something to fit everyone’s own aesthetic.

THE SOUND

As an audiophile, I have to HEAR my music when I play it, which goes for my co-workers, and most people I know. We put the UE MEGABOOM in the middle of our main workroom, and immediately noticed its loud 360-degree sound reaching every corner of the room. Clear mids, vibrant highs, and heavy bass. We gave the “Double Up” feature a go by connecting the UE MEGABOOM to our prized Limited Edition Skrillex Collab UE BOOM, which allowed for TWICE the sound. With this feature, the music was loud enough to pass through the room’s glass walls and into those adjacent, which should probably have warranted me a noise complaint from my own co-workers, but SORRY FOR PARTYING!!!

MULTI-HOSTING AND SPEAKERPHONE

We had a blast using the mutli-hosting function to connect two phones/computers to one UE MEGABOOM to play music back-to-back with one another, much like the DJs we work with and host during our clubcasts. Rather than passing the aux cord, we passed our DJ privilege, alternating track selection between eachother, keeping the office energy high and all of us entertained throughout the work day. We also tend to chat a great deal with the other half of our team in NYC, and the UE MEGABOOM was a perfect accompaniment for conference calls taken from our phones or on Skype, allowing for clear audibility and solid connection all around.

DESIGN DURABILITY

What really sets the UE MEGABOOM apart from its competitors is its unrivaled design durability which gives it the strength to withstand life, no matter how hard you’re turning up. It’s built to resist water and stains, meaning you need not worry about putting it in the shower, bringing it to a pool party, or holding it up to the sky as you jump through waves at the beach. Heck, these things are encouraged! Take it into the hot tub, clip it onto your backpack on that next hike up Ruyon, or even dredge through a blizzard while blasting some tunes (#2soon, NYC?).

CONCLUSION

The UE MEGABOOM truly allows you to bring the party with you anywhere you go. For its beauty, strength, and versatility, it’s well worth the $299.99 investment.
