Would be great if it weren’t for the constant battery issues
It keeps getting permanently stuck on ‘critical battery please charge’.
I can leave it charging overnight and it stays the same.
A factory reset does fix the problem but then eventually the issue comes back.
Only last for the warranty period
The speaker was good. Problem being it died two months out of warranty. No help at all from manufacturer and after a few web searches this appears to e a very common problem. product may be worth the $1 logitech pay the sweatshop that make it but at close to $300 I expect better.
If your thinking of buying this product DON"T.

Does not connect to my Spotify or multiple devices.
The sound is alright, but I'm having issues with it saving my party tracks on Spotify so I can use the magic touch feature. I've tried on iOS and Android.
Also the specs say it can have 2 concurrent Bluetooth connections however this is a lie. When I try and connect another device the first one drops out. Devices tested are s9+, s10e, ipad air 2, galaxy tab a

Good speaker, good sound
The speaker produces a clear sound with acceptable bass levels. The battery could be better and doesn't like to play while charging if below 20%. The waterproof feature will be handy.

No longer able to charge...common problem
I bought this a couple of years ago. Did a ton of research and bought this over the JBL...now wish I hadn't. All of a sudden it doesn't want to charge and when you get on the net, it seems this is a common problem. There are several work arounds for the problem... all of which I have tried several times, including firmware upgrade, holding down volume up button and power simultaneously, placing in fridge for a few hours (really???). Logitech's answer is to plug and unplug up to 30 times (30 times!!) to rectify the problem, one which they are obviously aware of and choose to not fix. This is not a cheap piece of gear and I expected better - never again Logitech/ UE Boom - JBL or Bose for me next time.

It’s not the best but okay
I bought this speaker a couple months ago expecting it so have good sound quality and decent bass the price I think is a bit expensive you’d think by paying that much it would be good , I think it could be bigger there’s not much changes only a smaller charging cable and a nicer appearance, I sold it yesterday and bought a new Jbl xtreme 2 for only $50 more and it’s worth it sorry UE until you start producing better sound quality and a bigger design for the price you’re asking for I won’t be a customer anymore .

Great looking, portability and sound from such a compact package
I seem to accumulate Logitech products around my house including keyboard, 2xPC speakers, mice and my newest product - the UE Megaboom 3 speaker. I believe that it's because I trust the brand as all of these previously bought products have lasted the distance and then some.
The Megabooms are a great addition to my collection. I was after a portable speaker that I could use around the house as I didn't want to have to rely on my PC speakers. I settled on the Megaboom 3s from a couple of recommendations - I haven't been disappointed. I can set t...he speaker in the middle of my house and can hear it well from either end. In the kitchen? no problems. Working from home? No problems too and even out the back on the pergola whilst BBQing or exercising is no issue either. There is a limit on the distance where if you turn the sound up too much in starts distorting a little but with a package this small, it was never going to be perfect. It also portable and loud enough that i can take it out the back and have it on whilst washing my car or other gardening tasks. The dock does not come with the Megabooms. It only comes with a USB charging cable which is micro-USB. I really like these speakers and will keep buying Logitech products.

My Bose Bluetooth Speaker finally died,time for a replacement.
I have always used Bose so it was a leap of faith to choose this brand so far I haven't been disappointed. Set up took a bit of time as the speaker can be controlled by an app on your smartphone or tablet, this was my fault as I tried the connection without reading the instructions. One connection was eastablised it was easy , what I like is you can preselect 4 song groups from my Spotify account.
As far as the sound is concerned Ita great, I like it a bit heavy on the base and there are equalisers in the app to adjust to your taste.
I only purchased this today so far so good.

Tough with great loud sound!
Waterproof, dustproof, loud and great battery life. The app is a great benefit too. Like a remote.
Only hard one problem, was saying please charge and was charging but would not turn on, insisting it needed charge. I googled and the cure was holding power button and volume up button on for 5 secs. It was fine after that. My niece has it now and its a great speaker for teens as they can be rough on things. They adore music too so its important they have a good speaker they can angsty blast.

Logitech UE Megaboom 3 speakers are one of the best speakers I have. As I am a big fan of music, the clarity of the voice and the quality of the product is highly exceptional. This is a low maintenance product and can be a wonderful gift for any music lover.

Latest update causes battery drain even when turned off
The ability to disable Remote ON/OFF has been removed, so now the Bluetooth is constantly ON even when the unit is turned OFF, which causes battery drain over time. Its causing about 10-15% battery drain per week.
So when you do need to use it, chances are the battery charge left is much less than the 20 hours they advertise about.

Your portable sound machine
I was looking for a portable blue tooth speaker that allows me to not only plays my favourite tunes but able to punch out music that you can dance to. In particular, I wanted rich bass as well as higher pitch clarity and I found this in the Ultimate ears Megaboom 3. It is light, portable with approximately 15 hours playback (when fully charged) and is even waterproof. The blue tooth connectivity was a breeze with my smart phone. Just down load the UE app and sync your devices and boom you are ready to rock. How good is that?
I got mine at Harvey Norman during the EOFY sale and had a great deal not only on the price but also on the extended warranty as well. Thanks Mr Harvey!!!

A costly disappointment
Overpriced, even at $199 which is what I paid. Looks nice & yes it is loud and colourful. Very poor software in this device. Lots of bluetooth and connectivity issues. Works better if u download the app. Doesn't work at all on Windows 10 & no app for this OS. U can't use your phone even for browsing whilst connected, as this will disrupt the connection. No cabling as a backup either if the bluetooth doesn't work, this device doesn't even have any ports. UE Logitech have a confusing contact form u can complete if u r having issues, but they ignore u. I wish I had a bought something else because I am not using it much due to these issues.

im reviewing the ue megaboom 3.
Not much of an upgrade above the normal Boom
Basically the Boom 3, but bigger, and with louder sound. No appreciable increase in sound quality. Not really worth it unless you regularly go outdoors and need something non-fragile and with long battery life.
Otherwise for around the house I've found the sound quality on a traditional bluetooth speaker like a Marley Get Together better.
Excellent durability with high tier sound quality.
Just recently bought the UE Megaboom 3 for a good price and overall it’s been a great speaker and feels like it can take on anything. This speaker can float on water and is ip67 rated for water and dust resistance which is amazing for a portable speaker! This speaker can get very loud and has great Bluetooth connectivity range. I feel that the 360 degree audio claim is a bit off as there are basically 2 (technically 4 if u consider the tweeter and woofer) seperate speakers facing on opposite directions on the left and right side of the volume b...uttons. In terms of sound quality, I feel this speaker doesn’t live up to the “megaboom” name and I still feel the urge for more base, I also tested this and found the frequency response to go as low as about 55Hz (not a very scientific test though). Other than that the speaker has great mids and highs and I highly recommend if you manage to catch a great deal!
cool luxury for music enthusiasts
purchased the new megaboom today from Perth City Apple Store and as expected it is of the highest quality!
Very clear sound, goes nice and loud and feels extremely durable. Has waterproof features and i nice rubbery feel that feels like it could thrown out of a truck and bounce into the sea and still be bangin’ out rockin’ beats
Questions & Answers
Is logitech megaboom 3 different from ue megaboom 3?
I bought two megaboom3s and am having multiple problems with Bluetooth signal dropping out and partying up the two for stereo sound drops out often as well. Have done all the resets etc. deleted app then reinstalled helped for 24hrs but then back to same problems. Is a great sound with two in stereo but is so annoying to have to fix all the time. Am wondering about warranty or refund. Any thoughts?
Hi Richard as far as having Bluetooth issues with the two speakers I can't help, occasionally I will get Bluetooth dropping out with my single speaker.
As far as warranty or refund not shore how you would go as the speaker does work, my only suggestion contact the manufacturer through their website, they maybe able to provide a solution.
Sorry I can be more helpful.
Thanks, have contacted manufacturer. Can try for wty claim but really don’t want to have anything to do with the “good” guys who I made purchase with. The absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced in my 58 years on this planet. And that is without even mentioning this problem. Am running now without the app just doubled up - no stereo, no equalisation. Seems to work so far....ta
