Logitech UE MEGABOOM has been replaced by Logitech UE Megaboom 3.
I've had this speaker for a year now and I use it practically everyday. Pairs beautifully to my ipad and iPhone with no issues. Battery has lasted very well, I usually charge it once in 10 days. The sound quality is amazing.
Bought from Harvey Norman on special with an additional 5 year warranty for $248. Definitely worth the money!
Worst purchase ever
Brought this product as a gift for my partner
Product worked perfectly for 10 months
Then wouldn't connect via Bluetooth, wouldn't charge (tried other charges however was a internal battery problem) and was unable to connect to app or computer
Contacted Logitech was given the run around for a few months (product was now over 12 months old) got told is was now out of warranty and there was nothing they could do.
A waste of a lot of money and ended up putting it in the bin
Don't waste anymore time looking just go buy it you won't be disappointed.
Get the Megaboom - really easy to operate - really easy to use - neat packaging - lots of info on the internet - easy to "pair up to your devise" - portable - great choice of colour which is fab if you have more than one like we do...... sound quality is fantastic for a small unit - quick and easy to charge - I would highly recommend for all age groups..... a good price but even better if you can get on a special offer, we signed unto Noel Leeming and got 10% off which paid for the extended guarantee which I would also recommend to get....
Great pedigree but both of mine have concerning issues
It's hard to give 2 stars for these.
Firstly, I've got 2 original booms and they're still awesome. I don't believe there was or is a better combination of sound quality, battery, durability and ease of charging. The Bose has slightly better sound IMO but has a weak battery, requires a specific Bose charger (!) and isn't waterproof or durable. And the stereo effect of two is awesome. There have been bluetooth niggles along the way but the sound of two in stereo is so good that all is forgiven. Don't hesitate, just buy two :-)
The Meg...aboom has clearly got potential by simply being a Boom, only better. My experience has been surprisingly poor however. The sound really is bigger and better but there was a crackle in one speaker from new - sounds like a background digital thing. Then other one stopped working after being half-dunked in a lake when I tipped my dinghy. Being waterproof was the reason I used to justify upgrading. It stopped about 10 minutes later despite having being only half underwater, briefly. Dead for two weeks but then started again. Things happen of course and logitech support has been good. They listened and gave RA numbers willingly. But this might be the deal breaker: the sound has two problems. There is a background digital thing going on all the time. Worse, the sound is never even between speakers. Whichever speaker is first connected to the phone, etc. is then louder. And adjusting the balance doesn't fix it without sliding most of the sound to one side. It is clearly software related but the recent update hasn't fixed it. I'm just about ready to send them both back and I don't like doing it. It's then the question of trying two more or giving it away for now.
DO NOT BUY THIS SPEAKER
This is the most disappointing piece of technology I have purchased in years. The rechargeable battery failed after only a few short months use. I purchased it new / sealed from ebay but because it wasn't a logitech endorsed ebay seller logitech refuse to honour the warranty. (How many ebay buyers are even aware of this situation & how many would continue to use ebay if they knew most manufacturers have an out regarding honouring warranties on the majority of ebay sales?) logitech didn't even bother to answer a single email I sent, I had to rin...g to them to get any of the disappointing news regarding my non-warranty claim. Suffice to say I will again never purchase ANY logitech products, but not only that but I can no longer use ebay knowing anything I buy likely won't be covered by warranty, no amount of ebay saving is worth no warranty imo.
What a fabulous device!!
I absolutely love this!! It has great sound quality and punch even when cranked up, very minimal distortion, hard to pick at all. In fact it was purchased for use in a very large outdoor space and this definitely makes the grade, not much else would have though. It is so good that my friends and family have purchased one for themselves after seeing and hearing mine in action. It is so portable, is very quick charge easy to pair and lasts for up to 20 hours!! This time would be cut if you had the device on full I'm sure but will definitely outla...st any party you may be planning. I purchased it for the Christmas parties we were hosting this year and it was faultless and a real talking point as it is surprising to be so small, yet so powerful. Some of the functions including % of charge left on the device by pushing both the higher and lower volume control simultaneously is great. It is waterproof, great for outdoor use, comes in a range of colours and I love the quality, the sound and the size. This is really fabulous. I just need to keep my 18 year old's hands off it as he grabs it at any opportunity! Don't need to think twice about this little beauty!! Enjoy!!
Must have portable speaker
perfect for beach, shower, poolside or a summe bbq. simple to pair with device, battery that will last almost all day (aprox 18hrs) negative is no play/pause or next/skip. But this portable waterproof, dustproof speaker will definitely perform to your needs with Very decent sound quality/ volume for its size
Slams the competition for value and sound music delivery!
This has to be the best bluetooth speaker in this price range. Depth in bass, no distortion when cranked as loud as it goes. For those with a sound music ear you will be pleasantly surprised by how much this kicks the tones of your tracks.
Going to buy a second to link up (and maybe more!!) If your after a bluetooth speaker, you can't go wrong!
Best portable speaker ever!
This portable, waterproof (!!), bluetooth speaker is actually incredible. I can honestly take it anywhere! I have used it around the pool, in the shower, outside and even in the dust while renovating. The sound quality is perfect indoors and out. The speaker really is dust-proof - I just rinsed mine underwater to clean it and it came up like new! It really is waterproof! The app is also great for sound control in different locations. Battery life is incredible and bluetooth range is great! I did purchase this at Dick Smith when it was on sale f...or $295 so I recommend waiting for a good deal if considering buying as they are a little pricey (but well worth it). Honestly an all-round perfect speaker, great for summer! I recommend it to anyone I can!
