Ultimate Ears Megablast review: Mr Boombastic, say me fantastic


With Alexa skills thrown into the mix, the UE Megablast transforms one of our favourite speakers into something more connected. It's a great

Solid build and water protection ; Sound quality ; Volume ; 16 hours of life

No Spotify integration ; Wi-Fi stability ; Power Up base not included ; Alexa experience not as smooth as Echo

You wait all year for a decent alternative to the Amazon Echo to come along and then two arrive at once in the UE Blast and Megablast.

Ultimate Ears Megablast Alexa smart speaker review


Alexa is on the move

Waterproof and robust ; Portable ; Great sound ; Convenient Alexa integration ; Good updates coming

Still awaiting some key features ; Expensive ; Charging dock sold separately

With the Megablast, Ultimate Ears has created one of the best looking and sounding portable speakers around. Thanks to its Amazon Alexa integration, it's one of the smartest too. Unfortunately, it's lacking some key features at launch and for those...

Ultimate Ears UE Megablast


If you want to take Alexa on the go, the UE Megablast is one of the biggest, most powerful smart speakers you can tote and expose to the elements without worry.

Powerful sound. Rugged, portable design. Integrates Amazon Alexa voice control.

Can distort on deep sub-bass. Lacks some voice control features. No speakerphone.

The UE Megablast is a powerful portable speaker that takes the solid performance and rugged design of the Megaboom and adds Alexa voice control to the mix. It easily overpowers the smaller and less expensive Amazon Tap, as well as the Echo itself.

Ultimate Ears Megablast Bluetooth speaker review: This Alexa-enabled speaker is loud and proud


Amazon's Alexa is inside the Ultimate Ears Megablast, but you'll never mistake this speaker for an Echo.

Plenty loud, with good bass response ; Amazon Alexa integration ; IP67 weather protection

Pricey ; Can't charge other mobile devices ; No speakerphone feature

The MegaBlast sounds better than many Bluetooth speakers, but I wouldn’t call it best of breed—at least when listened to on axis from short distances. It pumps bass, and is clear overall, but it might not cut through the background noise at a loud...

Ultimate Ears Megablast review


A fun and energetic portable speaker with nicely controlled performance.

Dynamic, detailed sound ; Enthusiastic, punchy rhythms ; Precise, taut basslines ; Goes really very loud ; Excellent build and design

Presentation is slightly lean ; Not fully featured just yet

Alexa voice control is a bonus, but we love this portable speaker’s fun, energetic and admirably controlled performance most of all

UE Megablast


UE Megablast review: Big, loud and now armed with Amazon Alexa – what's not to love?

Stupidly loud ; Decent sound for the money ; Long battery life

Bass can be overpowering ; Alexa smart functions are a little hit and miss

The Megablast is a bodaciously loud Bluetooth speaker with some tagged-on smart functionality.

Ultimate Ears Megablast and Blast Review: Alexa cuts the cord


Bluetooth speakers may be a commodity at this point, but Ultimate Ears wants to set the new Blast and Megablast apart with Amazon's Alexa. Joining Bluetooth is WiFi, and the ability to speak to Amazon's virtual assistant: whether that be for requesting...

Loud, rugged speakers withstand rough treatment ; Alexa without the power cord is great ; Megablast lives up to its name in volume ; Charging dock is convenient

Services like Spotify over WiFi are missing ; Both speakers are expensive, and the dock costs extra ; Bluetooth and WiFi don't always coexist well ; Many familiar UE features are missing

My Megablast was my Christmas present. I have just tried to set it up. The app is useless! the instructions or help if you have a problem is extremely poor. There are many complaints on their forum of trouble setting up this product. The app cannot...

Great portable speaker with Alexa (if you want her)


Firstly the speaker itself. I've had a UE Roll which has given great sound on the beach; this Megablast takes things to a new level. It sounds great but I was expecting it to have a better bass considering its name. It sounds great but is not...

Excellent Portable Speaker with Impressive Sound Quality


Received this just before a Christmas road trip, so was able to test out this product in various locations. It did not disappoint! Easy to use, easy to connect to and a great surround sound. The Alexa function is a bonus, although doesn't contend well...
