Despite some nitpicks that serious sound aficionados may have, the MEGABOOM does come with a lot of nice littler features like the long Bluetooth range, fast charging, and voice integration. However, it also comes with an app that gives you better control from your smart phone as well some additional features like the aforementioned PartyUp linking of UE speakers, tap controls, the ability to set a playlist as your alarm, and DJing your music with up to two other people.
The 360-degree sound is actually awesome if you are in smaller rooms with good acoustics, but if you are trying to crank up the noise in a wide open space, the MEGABOOM just doesn’t get loud enough. However, it does have the capability to hook up to 50 UE speakers together, which is across all UE models. So you don’t necessarily have to buy multiple MEGABOOMs if you have other models like the UE Roll on hand and want louder sound.
