    Really like this speaker. We went on a trip and forgot to bring our old speaker, and this one was on sale. It really kicks! Great 360 sound, and you can pair them with other UE speakers.One thing – I wish the speaker would tell you when the battery is like 1/4 full. It will tell you when it’s almost empty, but that’s not helpful if you’re in the middle of a movie.

    We bought this to provide better sound than can be provided from a phone and it’s delivered. We’re basic when it comes to tech, we just wanted something to listen to outside in the yard while enjoying drinks or dinner in city life and this does just that. Highs and midranges are fine, as could be expected, but bass is surprisingly good for its small size.Admittedly we don’t use it every day and when we do it’s maybe an hour or two. I would guess we use it 2-3 times a week tops and I am blown away that at that rate its initial charge lasted us 7 months. At this rate I’d buy again in a heartbeat.

    I just broke my last UE boom that I had for 9 years, It only broke because of me. This one arrived today(boom3) and it’s better than the last one in every way. It arrived brand new in an undamaged box, all the plastic was in place. It sounds terrific, it’s absolutely beautiful and the update to the buttons and charging port location are exactly what it needed. Time will tell if the quality stands up to their high standards from 9 years ago but I’ll update my review if needed.

    I have three of these and create my own surround sound with them. They are easy to travel with and the sound quality, whether you have one or three, is superb. I am very happy with these.

  5. Ronald Cormier

    Good little speaker but somewhat lacking in bass response- perhaps the model that has enhanced bass would have been more to my liking but i’m still happy with this one.

    After a little over a year of use, the rechargeable battery died on Boom 3. I have cheaper rechargeable speakers that have lasted years compared to Boom 3. Severely disappointed.Kudo’s to Logitech support. Amazon provided a contact number and Logitech promised to send a replacement. I’ve changed the rating to reflect their attentive customer service.

     I have two opinions of the Ultimate Ears Boom speakers.When used as a single speaker, the Ultimate Ears Boom 3 speaker works well. The sound quality and loudness are good for a speaker of its size. The Bluetooth range is rather pathetic as I lose connection after moving about 20 feet away from the speaker’s audio source, but I blame Bluetooth for being a lousy wireless standard more than the speaker for that fault. The speaker can be used every day in the shower with no negative repercussions. Overall, the Boom 3 speaker is a great speaker when used by itself.The situation completely changes when attempting to use two or more Boom speakers together. I’ll go into details below, but I can confidently say that I’ve experienced few pieces of technology that are more unreliable and frustrating than the Boom 3 speakers when trying to get them paired together and playing the same audio.First, the Ultimate Ears Boom app is a huge frustration. Getting even a single speaker to show up in the app can require multiple disconnects, app force quits, and speaker restarts. Once a primary speaker shows up in the UE Boom app, getting other speakers to show up is near impossible. Each and every day I want to use the speakers together, I have to go through a 20-minute process of forgetting Bluetooth settings, repairing, and powering off and on speakers. It is such a frustrating process that I usually rage quit and forgo using the speakers together.Then, once the speakers are connected together they regularly start clicking and thumping as they stutter during audio playback. Even when I move the two speakers within a foot of each other and the audio source, they regularly and constantly stutter and lose bits of audio. Listening to an entire song without missing parts is impossible when using the Ultimate Ears Boom speakers together in Party Up or Two-Up mode.Simply put, THESE SPEAKERS DO NOT WORK WHEN PAIRED TOGETHER. The Boom speakers are completely worthless when used together as the audio they play is unlistenable.I really enjoyed the single Ultimate Ears Boom speaker I used on its own for about two years, but after experiencing the disaster which is Party Up mode and the Ultimate Ears Boom app, I will never again purchase another Ultimate Ears product. This experience has just been too frustrating and I’ve wasted $300 on two speakers I cannot use together.

    Muy buena bocina , a todos lados la llevo

    Awesome speakerI loved this speaker so much I now have 2. It’s money well spent. Flawless sound. Great on its own and impressive when the 2 speakers sync for a stereo option. Very durable. Zero complaints about battery life. Easy to check battery life on the boom ears app. App is also great for locating speaker. Easy to give 5 stars to this product. I know there are a lot of speaker purchase options ( and for less ) however this really is a good speaker. So if you want a good/long time speaker, this is the one.My only less positive comment would be I find it’s too big/heavy to travel with only because I often just travel with a carry on. It would be great to pack in stored luggage. Aside from that it’s a gem

    I love it.Everyone loves it around me.The colour is so rich. Battery is long lasting. Once fully charged it can go on for days with moderate use.It is waterproof so i dont have to worry about spilling something over it.Although it doesnt really float, float. It floats with its base up and so the speaker is actually immersed in the water so you cannot really hear anything. (I did a float test and dunked it in water). Maybe it is supposed to be that way. When i bought it there were no detailed reviews online or on youtube so i dont really know. I thought it will float on its back and so you can play music in pool as well.But since i am not a pool person so it wasnt really my purpose.The sound is amazing. You can equalise the sound through the app and go for the bass boost if you are into it. I like my music balanced and it beautifully brings out the vocals too.Overall i am really happy with this investment
