Not a 15 hour battery life at all
I just purchased the megaboom and I will agree the sound is Cristal clear. Only it doesn't last 15 hours. I work 12 hour shifts so It should last my entire shift. From fully charged over night, the megaboom only had 10% battery life left 9 hours into my shift. Not happy at all.
Great speaker but doesn't last
As a result of its short life span I don't recommend this product. I've had two of these UE Megabooms now and they both only lasted just over a year before they would no longer charge. It's a shame because they are a great little speaker with good audio quality and plenty of volume for the size.

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.
