Whats the crucifix about? Is this for converting unbelievers? Does it just play Christian Rock?!
Speak is good but built in Alexa is pathetic
My experience with UE speakers is mixed. I thought the Wonderboom 2 was great, relative to its size, especially when paired for stereo. I've also tried the Boom 2 and Megaboom and thought that they both had had quite muddy/muffled mids/highs. Can anyone comment on this Megablast's mid/highs?
I just bought it to replace my Megaboom, such a shame you can't make bluetooth calls on it.
Amazing speaker, had a few issues the last few weeks with it not connecting to alexa but a firmware update has fixed that.
Thanks OP this is my 2nd one for a pair. Paid £99.99 BF 2019 so save £5.
Thought it was a religious fridge freezer!
I've been waiting for a discount on this for about 8 months. Can pay over 5 months too which is a touch. I literally went into Curry's and demo'd at full volume all the speakers, including Bose, and this stood out a mile, for the music I want to play (house/R&B). I would massively recommend it for this price. The fact you can now multi link, Alexa works properly and also Spotify, its the perfect speaker for next summers garden party's... If we're allowed them
As I said.... You can't pair these with Boom or Megaboom speakers.... Not sure how you managed it.
So you managed to connect this exact model with Alexa with UE Boom or Megaboom speakers that don't have Alexa? And play simultaneously? Because if you did that's great, they didn't used to support this.
I bought yesterday and connecting was no problem at all. You need to download the App first.

True but using the app you can pair these up for stereo or link up to 8 blast or megablast speakers.
Scanning through the deals and noticing the picture for this, I genuinely thought this was a top view of a "modern" coloured coffin
Got one from amazon warehouse and its very big and loud! Inside it sounds a bit disappointing but outside it really does sound great. I did a lot of research before deciding and so far are happy with it. I ended up getting a cheap bose soundlink 2 mini from amazon for indoors, so have both bases covered
Be warned, these won't link with Wonder boom, Boom or Mega Boom UE speakers.

Ultimate Ears Megablast Bluetooth Speaker £83.99 @ Amazon£83.99Amazon Deals
I paid £130 for a like new from amazon. The sound is pretty good considering it’s water proof. Very loud, but still fairly detailed at lower volumes
It is - but it's inflated to be fair. 3 camels says average price has been £185.55 £99 with the dock (which is massively overpriced for a bit of plastic - it's not even got a charging circuit in it) is a great deal.

Totally agree with you.. Best Price I've seen in last 2 years.
Yeah I looked at that. It's wrong. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ue-megablast-bluetooth-speaker-3263256
Yes they won't link as one is a bluetooth speaker only and this is a wifi/bluetooth speaker. At least that is UE's explanation. Doesn't bother me as they are bathroom speakers in my house and I don't need any link ups. They sit on the rather overpriced power up bases and fill my shower time with lovely music from Spotify or Tune in. But I still have not seen them this low since I got 2 from Costco at £108 each last year. Costco have just gone on offer again at £108 in store. But this price is even better if you want one of these. If you don't then fair enough.
No Megablast. They annoyed me because they added Alexa to my Boom 2's and Megaboom with a software update. Then removed it overnight and released these, which aren't compatible. If you have Booms / Megabooms these won't link via the app.
I have been monitoring their prices for a while as I needed a 3rd unit, so not sure where you say they have been this price for a while? Are you referring to the standard blast?

Great speaker. Negative reviews were mainly because you couldn’t link multiple speakers together like you could for all of their others (megaboom etc). However they added that feature last month so you can now do stereo pairing and link up to 8.
Great speaker :)

Is there a Google home equivalent that is IP rated for use in a bathroom? I cannot stand Alexa and the implementation in this seems to be very poorly reviewed? Great price for a powerful bluetooth speaker however.

Nice, I need an aux input so I went with a mega boom and I managed to get a red one in like new condition from Amazon Warehouse for £65!
I went for the megablast due to the reviews saying it has a more powerful speaker, and the inclusion of Alexa in one unit means a don't have to worry about a separate power point fo the echo input!
You can also get the original megaboom with the new echo input for £114 on amazon today, I can't decide which one to get can anyone who has any experience with these devices chime in? It seems like the actual echo functions should be better with the megaboom and echo input and it's cheaper so I'm leaning towards that option.
Researched a little more and the reviews say this is also louder than the megaboom, which may or may not be a good thing! So £30 extra for Alexa and a louder device, so I think I'm going to go for it as an upstairs/bathroom/garden speaker I can drag around as needed!

Ultimate Ears Megablast BT Speaker £129 @ Amazon with Prime Day£129Amazon Deals
Looks good for the price, seems lower than ever. I am trying to decide between this and the Bose Soundlink Mini 2.
I decided on the bose, had a £15 voucher so used that to buy the 3 year anything happens protection, so it’s now waterproof and everything :D
Two different speakers, this is portable.
Yeh good deal, but I convinced myself out of it. Lol One of a few deals from this site I managed to not buy but really wanted. 1, not Google assistant. 2, little gritty stuff like, can't charge with any other USB cable lying around. No battery life indicator, all reviews say holding volumes button together don't work now. 3,no skip, pause, preview track buttons. For me this was the deal breaker. It's annoying when you have to get out your phone to change track when more convenient to have either option available to you. (It's like if you had headphones you don't have a controller or buttons on the earcup, but worse because you have several people listening with you) Anyways, good deal :D
If you're going to spend this much you might as well go the whole hog and get Sonos Ones. Love mine.
I’ve used both a lot and got 2 older BOSE docks. The mini sounds nice and might be slightly more balanced but this is dust and waterproof and even the smaller one can blast out some tunes far louder then the mini 2. I take mine to bbqs etc and don’t have to worry about getting wet etc. It’s great.
Bought the megaboom through OA via HUKD deal. £109. Lasted 2 days then would only play while plugged in. Negotiations for new speaker first with OA then Ultimate Ears they took busted speaker still not replaced it. Check on YouTube this battery problem seems to be a regular complaint. t
You know its bad when most of the reviews are Vine Voice. read the one from b4-its-2l8 the general manager of logitech has left her email add on it 19 hours ago. I would leave it a bit they may drop the price again to get them shifting "Therefore, please e-mail me at: email@example.com and I will make sure that we get in touch to fix the problems. Charlotte Johs, General Manager at Ultimate Ears
Yeah put me off a bit however with amazons decent customer service I’ll take the risk. Sent my surface pro 4 back after 11 months and they gave me a refund so I trust them. Also some negative reviews are about connection to macs and Bluetooth connections etc, I just need it to connect to WiFi to play Spotify and that’s it.
I've got a UE Boom and 2 UE Boom 2s but looking at the reviews about connectivity I think I'll wait until they have sorted out the firmware issue.
For those voting cold can I get one cheaper elsewhere. Or if it’s because of the product can you recommend a portable, Alexa enabled waterproof speaker?
