Megablast, Hyperboom, Megaboom, Boom and Wonderboom

Ultimate Ears (UE) is well-known for producing high-quality Bluetooth speakers with a distinct design consisting of rubber and fabric components. They are also known for their brilliant colour schemes and large volume controls.

UE Hyperboom Speakers

The Hyperboom is the latest and greatest from UE, and it delivers truly colossal sound. It’s also a break from contemporary alternatives’ typically cylindrical designs.

It’s not the smartest Bluetooth-only speaker on the market, but for raw auditory strength, it’s hard to top. The bass on offer is especially earth-shattering at high volumes.

Two 114 mm woofers, two 25 mm tweeters, and two 89 mm x 190 mm passive radiators are housed within. It has a Bluetooth range of 45 metres and a battery life of 24 hours.

If you want a monster speaker that’s almost portable, this is a terrific option.

UE Megablast

Other than the Hyperboom, the UE Megablast was originally the top speaker in the Ultimate Ears lineup, being the loudest and most powerful. It features the distinctive UE design with big volume controls and a blend of rubber and fabric, as well as a power button on top and a Micro-USB port on the bottom. There is also the option of contact charging, but the Power Up accessory is offered separately.

Inside, the Megablast has two 25mm tweeters, two 55mm active drivers, and two 85 x 50mm passive radiators with a frequency range of 60Hz to 20kHz and a maximum sound level of 93dBC. It boasts 360-degree sound and performs admirably in terms of sound quality. It also has a 45-metre Bluetooth range and is compatible with the UE App and Equaliser.

The Megablast has Amazon Alexa, which eliminates the need for an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, though we didn’t find the Alexa experience as smooth as Echo, despite the significantly greater sound quality. Multiple microphones, beam-forming technology, and noise reduction are included for far-field voice recognition, and the Megablast claims 16 hours of battery life.

UE Megaboom 3

The design of the UE Megaboom is more smooth than that of the Blast range. It contains a “Magic Button” on top that allows users to play, pause, and skip tunes without using their phone, as well as access playlists from services such as Apple Music and Deezer with a long press.

The Megaboom provides 360-degree sound and high-quality sound using two 50mm drivers and two 55 x 86mm passive radiators. It features a frequency range of 60Hz to 20kHz, a maximum sound intensity of 90dBA, is compatible with the UE App and Equaliser, and has a Bluetooth range of 45 metres.

Alexa is not included into the Megaboom. The UE Megaboom 3 has a longer battery life (20 hours) than the Megablast. The charging is easier thanks to a repositioned Micro-USB connector on the back and a built-in contact charging socket for the Power Up on the bottom. In contrast, the Power Up is sold separately.

UE Boom 3

The UE Boom 3 is the smaller version of the UE Megaboom 3. It is the successor to the well-known Boom 2. It has the same design as the Megaboom 3 but is smaller and more compact. Also, it can be personalised if you pay a little extra through the MyBoom service. Like the Megaboom 3, the “Magic Button” sits on top, enabling play, pause, and skip features, as well as access to playlists (music service dependent), and a more streamlined design.

Inside, everything is identical as the Boom 2, so you’ll still receive that great sound. Two 50mm drivers and two 50 x 80mm passive radiators produce a frequency range of 90Hz to 20kHz and a maximum sound intensity of 90dBA. It has the same Bluetooth range as the Megaboom 3 and is compatible with the UE App and Equaliser.

The Boom 3 does not have the smart capabilities of the Blast. It has a 15-hour battery life that can be charged via the re-located Micro-USB port on the back or the Power Up contact charging port on the bottom.

UE Wonderboom 2 – BEST Ultimate Ears Speakers

The Wonderboom 2 improves on the original Wonderboom by adding stereo pairing for those who like a more sophisticated sound. It also has an outdoor sound button, which reduces the bass and increases the treble, making it ideal for listening outside.

It features two 40mm active drivers and two 46.1 mm x 65.2 mm passive radiators. With a frequency range of 75Hz to 20kHz and a maximum sound level of 86dBA, or 87dBA in Outdoor Mode. Also, has a Bluetooth range of 30 metres and is water and dust resistant to IP67 standards.

The Wonderboom 2 boasts a 13-hour battery life, which is slightly longer than the previous model. It Still provides the same compact and powerful audio output. If you do not wish to stereo pair, you can group with another Wonderboom speaker. Ultimate Ears Speakers.
