Nothing but frustrating
When I bought my Megablast speakers (2) I was told by the sales person you can double them up which at this point is completely false. There is no option within the app to do this like with the megaboom app and speakers. I took them back to the store where I bought them and the answer they gave me was “ well the megablast is a brand new speaker and app, it probably will come in one of the updates”. However, this is not the biggest frustration with them. The biggest frustration is that the app they designed for these speakers really does nothing for them. It doesn’t control them. It doesn’t allow you to switch between them, it doesn’t allow you to turn them on and off. For all I can see, all it does is finds them and registers the speakers in the app. Beyond this, the speakers themselves don’t stay connected to my iPhone 8 I have to constantly reset them and reconnect them and go through set up over and over again. I have about 10 more days to make up my mind on these before I can no longer return them. As of right now, they are probably going back. My suggestion stay away, do not buy!!! Not worth the $300 or so price tag for one speaker and the support app is a total waste of time. If you like complete frustration, then by all means purchase these.
I really want to love this speaker but it won’t even link up to another speaker. I thought if I got two of them they should work the way my mega booms work or my smaller ue booms. But I feel like this speaker was released in a rush with the promise of features. I will definitely wait before purchasing another Logitech device and see how it works with them adding and removing feature that I have become to love and enjoy. This speaker is also heavier than the mega boom which is to be expect due to some of the components. The pros for this speaker are that it is louder than its predecessors. I complain about it not linking up but it’s almost not necessary unless I want low volume in different places. It’s still water proof and I do like the charging features. The speaker is also still waterproof which will come in handy for summer pool time. Overall the speaker itself will get 3 stars where the app is 2 stars as there is no party mode no power on or off capability and the volume control is too small but I’m glad it’s there now. I’d like to see more out of my purchases.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry that you don't love the new speaker yet, but I really appreciate the detailed and candid feedback. We've heard from many loyal Ultimate Ears fans like yourself that they miss features that exist for MEGABOOM and BOOM and in response we're actively working on these features for future releases. We can't get everything launched in a single release, but I assure you the team is working very hard to get you the features you know and love from our other products.
Your comment regarding "the volume control is too small" is really interesting. I'd love to get more specifics around that. Please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com
Thanks and stay tuned for some great updates!

Comparing to the mega boom
Hey developers, I’m very surprised by the sound quality and eq for the mega blast. The shortcomings of this speaker are, for me only due to how great the mega boom was. I “upgraded” to this speaker because my mega boom was lost in a luggage debacle. I haven’t been able to use the WiFi options for this speaker yet mostly because I use this speaker everywhere except at home. It seems to keep shutting off on its own. Since you guys haven’t added the feature of being able to turn it on and off through the app, I have to go to where it’s located to turn it back on. Im really hoping you guys bring back that option. Also why can’t I open the app and check the battery percentage? Seems like that would be a no brainer. I will gladly write a new review when you guys bring this one up to speed! I realllly hope you guys do! I loved my mega boom so so so much and was heartbroken to lose it. Thanks!
