The UE company has a tried and tested formula that all of their products are made upon. This way the end-user gets the same perfect performance that is expected from the brand. They are doing their best to improve the standards and don’t produce something that doesn’t meet the requirements of the brand. The speaker is waterproof so you don’t need to worry about spilling any liquid on it, just wipe it off with a dry cloth and you are good to go. The spill will not affect the sound quality of the speaker.
As this speaker doesn’t attach with a wire, the first thing that comes to our minds is the battery life. Thankfully, it comes with a pretty long battery life that will allow you to use the speaker without any hurdle. It comes with a DJ feature that will allow you to keep your friends in action. Compared to the Rockford Fosgate speakers, this one has a very sleek design.
UE Megaboom 3 Design
Megaboom has been launching different speakers but they haven’t changed the design over time. For that, we think it is a great decision because the already present design works pretty well so there is no need to experiment with something new. The cylindrical shape of the UE Megaboom 3 is just the old classic shape that all of us love as it gives an aesthetic look. What makes us glad is the fact that they do change things that need to be changed. The shape of the UE Megaboom 3 is somehow similar to the Alexa speakers. The rugged design makes it aesthetically pleasing and a great addition to your computer table or just the side table.
The stiff buttons are replaced with some new tactile ones and we also get the Magic Button on top of the speaker with which we can control the playback music. It is also helpful to launch the one-touch playlist that you can set before. You can use Apple Music or Deezer to create your playlist. This way you can instantly enjoy your music any time you want. Although m, this button will not turn on the voice assistant on your phone or start playing music from Spotify.
UE Charging Port
UE updated in some ways but didn’t in others. The charging port of the speaker has moved to the bottom so that it will be more convenient. The thing that didn’t change is the MicroUSB lightning connector that is required to get your speaker charged. If you are not a big fan of charging cables, you can get a separate Power Up wireless charging dock worth $40. It will serve as your charging dock when your speaker is at home.
UE Megaboom 3 DJ Mode
This UE DJ feature is newly added to the speaker. This feature allows you to invite your friends to make your mic and control what plays on your speaker. You have an option to invite up to two friends to control your mixes. You can also connect different devices with Bluetooth using the Megaboom app. It looks like a very gimmick but clever way to allow your friend’s control over your music.
Performance of UE Megaboom 3
When it comes to performance, we can’t ignore how loud this thing can get. If you are in a medium-sized room, just keeping the volume on 50% will be enough. We will not recommend you taking the volume to 100% unless you are outdoors and there is ambient noise to cut it down.
It has an incredible loudspeaker with a very punchy and crisp sound to give you the perfect audio experience. This UE Megaboom 3 speaker comes with so many extraordinary features that will allow you to enjoy every perk with high quality.
Usually, the speakers lose sound quality at high volume but thankfully the audio quality stays great. Although, the bass is lost at high volume. The higher pitch doesn’t sound harsh and you can enjoy your music. The audio performance and quality of the speaker is the main thing that makes it stand out from other speakers in the market.
You get 20 hours of battery life so when you fully charge your speaker, it will last you almost a full day of usage and that is pretty great. This time period is valid if the volume of your music is around 25%, otherwise, you get a margin of a few hours at different volumes.
