It’s just so good.. But I just can’t!
I have the utmost respect for Logitech for creating their Ultimate Ears Hyperboom because as a single unit it works so dang good that it fills up my house and my multiple workplaces that I go through on a day to day basis. But however there are times where the app itself would be dealing with constant connection issues while connecting to other Ultimate Ears products through their Party Mode option. I really want to give a positive review for the app itself but it needs a new refresh of an update, both connectivity and UI speaking. Please Logitech, a lot of us are fans of your products! So let us be a fan of your app too! There is still room for improvement and you have us as your fan base and audience to take suggestions from. We don’t want the app to act like it’s taking its time to come creeping out and start stabbing deeply in our hearts with constant interruptions. That’s all we ask! P.S. The battery on the Hyperboom is a beast!

What happened?
I got the new EpicBoom and loved the NFC pairing feature- I’d come home and tap my phone already playing music and my Epicboom would pair and play what I was just listening to within a few seconds. Now I have to open my Bluetooth settings and select the speaker every time… other than that little inconvenience I still love this speaker.

Can’t turn speaker off - patched!
Just bought a Megaboom 3 and the app doesn’t turn the speaker off. It puts it in standby but its constantly turned on so the battery is always dead when I want to use it. Apparently this is a new feature? Why is turning on a portable speaker with a button more inconvenient that having dead batteries all the time? Update: In Sept 2023, UE added a “Bluetooth standby” toggle which appears to actually turn off Bluetooth entirely and therefore save battery life when not in use. Here’s to not starting a trip with a dead battery!

⁉️
I love the app even though it doesn’t always work which is very surprising considering the company I have three speakers the last one I purchased a couple of weeks ago because my other speaker stopped taking a charge☹️ I am an Aquatic Supervisor and use the speakers by the pool deck for water aerobic classes as well as playing Disney music for children during their classes I purchased the three because of the app and when I go to install it it’s not even an option Is there anyway it can be added⁉️

Updated review
Thank you for reaching out. After restarting phone & speaker multiple times and deleting and re-adding the app multiple times, and re-pairing multiple times, the app is doing what I need it to do now. The speaker looks and sounds great and no other update has caused me such issues. I’m glad it’s working again because I use it almost every day. ——— Previous review updated above. I only have the app on my phone to be able to turn the speaker on. Since the update, I can be two inches from the speaker and it tells me it can’t find it. Standby is on. It will turn the speaker off but not on. Never used to have issues. I’ve deleted the app since it no longer does the only thing that I need it to.

Love the speakers but not the Party
I have bought a few speakers over the last few years and just upgraded the home with the new boom 3 and Hyperboom. They sound great used by themselves but when adding new speakers it starts to have issues to the point of having to turn off the party function and blast music throughout the house with only one speaker. Wish the party function worked better so you can keep music at lower level.

Original UE BOOM
I have an original old UE BOOM that works well, but the sound needed to be corrected. I just installed your app on my iPhone 13 and use the equalizer customized by raising the mid base slightly and the trouble moderately and the sound is fantastic. I can even turn the UE BOOM on and off from the app, great job thank you

Had been very happy
I’ve had my boom speaker for several years & have loved it thru each iPhone I’ve upgraded to. Except now. For some reason I cannot get it to pair with my iPhone 14 Plus. Is there a software update? The speaker still works with my husbands iPhone XL & our iPad but not my 14. Can you help?

Avoid this speaker brand
I’ve tried everything to connect this speaker (boom 3) to my iPhone 15. I got it to connect 2-3 time, and it dies after about 2 hours of it on higher volume. It doesn’t matter where Im at, this speaker refuses to connect. Contacting FAQ support is no help either, nothing works when trying to connect my speaker. Perhaps I was cursed with a lemon? Very disappointed with the product overall.

3 stars because Adaptive eq doesn’t work
I’ve the ultimate ears hyperboom for about 2 years now and I was exited about the adaptive eq but I read reviews saying the eq doesn’t work and nothing is there, so 2 years later I installed it and the eq works but the adaptive eq doesn’t automatically adjust the eq based on the environment.

Short support window!
Don’t buy their products! My Boom 2 is no longer supported and they haven’t made a version of the app that still supports it available! It worked fine in the first couple years. It was frustrating it needed the app to support stereo play, but fine. Unfortunately, with a forced update they stopped supporting the Boom 2. Why does everything have to be disposable??!!

Takes forever to connect on new iOS
One of the reasons I bought this speaker is the ability to power on using the app. It takes FOREVER to power on through the app now that I upgraded from an iPhone 10max to a 14pro. Disappointing that their software updates have not supported new Apple devices well.

All Boom speakers but not WonderBoom?
Help me understand why the wonder boom doesn’t connect to this app when it lists right on the first picture that this app is for all boom speakers!? I bought a wonder boom specifically to connect it to my Megaboom, but I’m only now finding out that this is not possible even though it says all boom speakers can pair…

Update Broke Connectivity
Everything was fine until the recent update. Now the app won’t connect to my speaker so no features or settings can be changed. The app will actually power up the speaker but, despite the speaker connecting to my phone right away, the app won’t recognize the speaker is connected and errors out.

Sound Issues Party Up
I bought 2 HYPERBOOM speakers (expensive deal), to make a party very special, but the sound ruined everything. It kept cracking and interrupting the song often once I paired both with their “party up” feature. Disappointing, I was very frustrated and all guests seemed to be also annoyed by the audio issue. I might just return them sadly.

App is Broken
My UE Boom 2 is not recognized by the app. I can pair it to Bluetooth easily, but if want to use it, I have to manually select it in the Bluetooth many to pair it each time. It’s like they just don’t care because this product is facing a sunset and they have no interest in fixing this known issue that others have reported, too.

Won’t save custom EQ settings!!!
Please fix the bug in setting custom EQ settings. Once you set your desired EQ settings and turn the app off when done using the next time you use it, those settings are gone, and you have to re-set them again each and every time you go back to launch the UE Boom app and listen to music on your Boom. PLEASE FIX THAT!

The app
The speaker has been great. I’ve had it for about 3 years now. The app used to work flawlessly but recently I can’t power on the speaker remotely though the app like I used to and also pairing the speaker to my phone, I have to go to the settings to pair it every time.

Bluetooth standby
This company took away the ability to turn off Bluetooth standby so it’s always draining battery. Don’t use your speaker for two weeks and it’s always dead.

Ehh, it’s OK...
I read a review that matched up the Bose Soundlink Mini 2 against the UE Megaboom 3 with the MB3 coming out on top in most categories. This convinced me to go buy the MB3 after thinking about it for several weeks. I happen to have both speakers. Ehhh, NO. The Bose still sounds better IMHO. The most notable thing was that the MB3 lacks bass, even when cranking up the bass on the custom EQ. And the frustrating part is the app. While the app is cool to operate your speaker ie: turn it on/off remotely etc. BUT set the EQ to your custom settings and when done with the speaker, turn it off with the app then turn the speaker back on and guess what! The app does NOT save your custom EQ settings to memory. Nowhere in the app settings can you save your custom EQ to memory. I turned the speaker on and off several times just to make sure and sure enough, those custom EQ settings were gone every time. This was a major pain. Portable speakers like these will never fill a room full of REALLY LOUD music; I get that. But at least make it crank the bass so it won’t sound like music coming from a tin can. That’s why Bose is Bose folks... UE, set those custom EQ settings to memory and hopefully a firmware update will take care of the lack of bass...

Was Working Until...
I generally don't leave reviews. It has to be an exceptional app or really awful. This app falls into the second category. It was working fine until the update. Now I can't control the speaker from my iPhone. If I have it connected to the audio of my TV/DVD, I have sound. When I launch the app and connect it to Bluetooth so I can control the volume, the speaker disconnects. So now I'm forced to keep getting up, adjusting the volume, sitting down to see if the volume is alright. Then when I change stations or watch a new movie; the process begins all over again. This game of musical chairs has become old. I honestly don't understand how or why, this or any other company, can have major flaws for an update to the point that it's rendered useless. Isn't the point of the update to "fix minor bugs"? Has anyone developing the software at this company heard of Beta test? I have been a part of many with Apple when they are developing a new IOS. At a bare minimum, the employees should have been testing it throughly before a release. I suppose when you have sole rights to develop an app for your own product it doesn't really matter. Honestly, what can any of us do? We own the speakers and for most of us when can not return them at this point. All we can do is discourage friends and family from buying the speakers. Maybe when it impacts the profit margin, someone will act on rectifying the issue. Until then...

This works so much better for voiceover users.
Finally after a year or two of waiting, this app works almost perfectly with voiceover again. I love the fact that I can turn on and off my speakers from my iPhone. I also like the fact that I can rename my speakers without having to ask a sighted person for help. Thank you for the completely redesigned and mostly voiceover friendly update. I am editing this update a little bit. I now have both a BOOM and a Boom 2 speaker. I followed instructions for the double up and party up features, but it doesn’t work. The firmware on both speakers is up-to-date. Also, the party up feature is completely inaccessible to voiceover users. The way that you have it set up for a user to drag the speaker into some kind of drawer does not work because voiceover does not announce that there is a drawer at all.

PINK SLIPS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS!
It’s too bad one cannot give negative stars! Everyone involved in developing this worthless drivel need to be given Pink Slips £ escorted to the exit immediately. It is unfathomable that Logitech is associated with this nonsense. It is bad enough that there is no way to extinguish that obnoxious sound that it makes when turning on or off and no AUX jack/port on the UE Megaboom to connect directly but this is putting rock salt into a gunshot wound £ stitching it closed. Also, it will no longer connect via bluetooth to my MacBook Pro. I tried to return the speaker but it was beyond the return date. [yea, I did the dance through the website] The software, once downloaded onto my iPhone, never shows the MegaBoom in the bluetooth window. This is worse than the KEF LSX attempt at a bluetooth app. Yes, my bluetooth function works because I writing this message with my Logitech K760 Solar Keyboard via bluetooth. RECOMMENDATION: Burn this disaster of an attempt at a bluetooth app. AND burn the draft boards it was written on. Stick to hardware £ make sure it works. This should be considered an absolute embarrassment for a company such as this. Spend you money JBL if you want to connect via cable. Otherwise, if it is in the budget, get a pair of PSB, ELAC or Klipsch active speakers if you do not necessarily need portability.

Spotty Audio Connections on Party Up, App is Style Over Substance
Cart before the horse here on execution. Audio quality and connection should be paramount over all of the other convenience features. It shouldn't be an iterative process to successfully get 3 speakers partied up and by no means should any have audio cutting out while sitting next to one another fully charged playing music (5G WiFi, downloaded tracks, whatever, there's a codec issue here). The app looks nice and all but at the end of the day all I'm looking for is a high quality stable connection between multiple speakers. If I need to physically get up and walk over to turn one on/off or adjust the volume so be it. EQ, nice to have but I'll trade it any day for rock solid audio with no cutouts. Requiring the app to parry up may look cool with the dots and all, but functions 10x better and consistently on the cheaper wonderboom models (which sadly are limited to 2 max otherwise I'd just buy 8 of them). Ignore the completion from the likes of Bose, beats, JBL etc.... you have some solid underlying physical engineering that the app doesn't do justice and even detracts from. Forget adding extra features and focus on the core product and main reason people buy your speakers, to listen to some dang music.

Bring back ability to turn off remote power!!!!
This has been one of the most versatile speakers (UE Boom series). My original UE Boom still lasts over 15 hours and hold its charges for well over 6 months. That was until I decided to get UE Megaboom. It has a new app that allows you to remotely turn on or off the speaker. It seemed pretty cool but I was wondering how much battery drain it would be as it is essentially communicating with the speaker constantly. The app also told me my UE Boom needs a firmware update. After I did the update, the speakers power started draining like crazy in its off state. I left the power for both speaker in the “soft-off” state at 70%/40% battery for UE Megaboom and UE Boom. 5 days later with 0 usage, the battery went down to 40% and 20% respectively!! This is a TERRIBLE NEW FEATURE! Please add back the ability to turn off the ability to remote turn on the speaker. After I did a hard reset on the speakers, I left them unused for 2 weeks, and the battery is still 40%/20% today. I re-paired them today to my phone. But I expect the battery to continue to drain now the ability to turn them on and off remotely is back. Please add the ability to turn off this “feature” which many considers to be a bug.

Outstanding Speaker
I have a pair of the UE Boom speakers and love them. They are water resistant (I take one in the bathroom while I shave or shower). They also have a standard tripod thread input on the bottom so you can mount them on an inexpensive point and shoot tripod. There is never any guessing about battery charge; just press the up and down volume buttons simultaneously and a verbal response tells you the exact charge level. These are Bluetooth speakers (not Airplay) but with the UE boom APP you have the ability to use two speakers; both stereo or one as left channel and one as right channel. Amazing! And I forgot to mention the these jewel have a 15 hour battery for all day fun. They are cylindrical in shape and put out music 360 degrees. The come in a variety of colors to match your taste. They feel solid when you hold them. You know that the build quality is good. Try them out. You will not be disappointed

App and speaker error
My UE Boom 2 is connected to my phone and I would be playing music but when I access the app it says "Let's hook up" even tho I am already connected and there is no other option to access or look for my boom 2. I can sometimes turn my UE Boom 2 with the UE Boom app but when I reopen the app the same problem as the I stated occurs with no solution in sight (on the app users side). Regardless of the lack of connectivity/communication between the app and speaker , the speaker is remarkable great sound , amazing all around there is some static sound when the volume is all the way which can distort the music but lowering the volume a few notches rids it of the static noise. In conclusion I'm giving it 5 stars due to the speaker quality but it'll be a strong 3 and weak 4 stars for the app unless the connection is solved for a more efficient use of both the app and speakers.

Please test before releasing your app
This is frustrating... With every app release we are told to change the way we can pair speakers to create double/surround sound. Each time, I'm able to do it initially and then cannot a second time. This new release has the cute visual. Nice visual, but if it doesn't work who cares about a new UI. The How To says to swipe left to get to the party up screen but that action isn't supported. Nothing happens. The manual option to pair speakers is gone or is not working either. In reality I shouldn't have to use your app every time I want to pair my speakers and the sticky setting doesn't stay. Honestly, please think about your end user. I want to be able to walk into my house, hit the power button on each speaker and have them work together (as long as both are connected by Bluetooth to a supported device). This isn't possible, though your advertising leads people to believe that it is. If the only way possible to pair speakers is going to be through the app then please fully test before releasing updates.

🔊Party-Up 🔊 does Work Great (just need to have good line of site)
I’ve had two MegaBOOMs for years & they work great together! They work great as long as there isn’t anything significant blocking your iPhone/ iPad and the 1st Connected Speaker & then from the 1st to 2nd Speaker! (the signal seems to go from the Device to one Speaker & then to the Next Speaker - daisy-chain) People, it’s Bluetooth after all - which isn’t nearly as robust as WiFi for transmitting signals! Sometimes the App does get confused if you disconnect by going far away from the Speaker(s). Again issues are more from the inadequacies of Bluetooth than this App! I find the BEST PRACTICE is to Turnoff the Speakers via the App & then Quit the App (it seems like if you keep the App open, it’ll try to connect to the Speakers - which can get the app confused 🤔).

Failure of an App
I don’t understand why they would make a product that to use an of its special features you’d need an app, then proceed to make the app completely useless. I tried to avoid updating my speakers because from what I read from reviews it causes nothing but trouble but some how one of them ended up updating and I couldn’t double up with my other speaker. So I ended up updating the other one as well. Now when I play music the speaker has a light hissing noise in the back and it wasn’t there yesterday. I just got these speakers yesterday and I’m already experiencing issues which really upsets me. I looked up what my issue could be and it said the firmware, like how do you mess this up so badly? My advice skip the app all together and never update your boom. The update is for show and only causes trouble for you and your speaker. I’m still searching how to reset them to factory settings and haven’t found any luck. Just stay away from the app and update all together it’s not worth it.

Works well, also in Stereo
The main reason why I bought the small Logitech (1st generation) instead of Bose was the capability to listen to any of my songs at any place in stereo and of course the sound quality was very good for such small speaker. Version 5.1: First I updated both speakers individually (I had to do this twice with one of them) and then I disconnected one of them from the Bluetooth connection so that just one of them is getting the data directly from my iPhone 7. Now I can connect this one speaker, start my music, add the second speaker, and can also use them in stereo mode. Very easy, fast and reliable. Again, the key was to disconnect one of the two from the Bluetooth communication since they talk directly between each other. Well done Logictec!

best speakers ever!!!
i own the wonderboom 2 speaker some people don’t actually know how to treat nicely there speakers like some people said there speaker is glitchy because YOU DONT TREAT IT RIGHT its some times glitchy because it is low on battery or you may have dropped it in water like my older brother did with his speaker so he traded it for a other wonderboom 3 the sad part is you cant use the app for the wonderboom 2 speaker and it lasts for a good period of time so i never have to actually worry about it dying for its 13 hour battery its small portable and i love the outdoor mode because i love camping hiking biking so this speaker has the same efficiency for those types of environment so these speakers are THE BEST if you just treat them RIGHT!!!
