Fortress of Solitude

Dynamite in a small package

from Fortress of Solitude

The Ultimate Ears Boom 3 is a definite upgrade over its predecessors. While the design may not have changed much, there are some useful additions. Combined with great audio, especially the bass, as well as extended battery life, the Boom 3 checks all the right boxes when it comes down to it.

These are just damned good, knockabout speakers

from Gadget Guy

They are not fancy, don’t have 3.5mm AUX, no Wi-Fi or voice assistants – they look good, can handle rough and tumble and sound good too. If you want the ultimate, take-anywhere speaker, these are it.

Ultimate Ears does an excellent job of conveying what the final product will look like in the real world. If you’ve ever purchased a UE speaker, you know the quality of the product. This isn’t any different whatsoever as it’s the same stuff you’ve seen and heard before. If you’re in the market for a new Bluetooth speaker and don’t want to go with the same old, same old, consider the UE myBOOM Studio.

Sounds clean, energetic and can get very loud for such a compact package

from Tech Daily

The Boom 3 is a compact speaker but don’t let that fool you – it outputs crisp and loud, heart-pounding sound from a solid, well designed unit.

Customize the look then sit back and enjoy the sound

from Techaeris

I think the customization of the speaker is a cool deal. It’s unique and offers some value. I think the sound could be a bit thicker at the higher volumes, but I still think most people will like this speaker. I would certainly not recommend this for hip-hop or any bass heavy style of music. Bu...More

I think the customization of the speaker is a cool deal. It’s unique and offers some value. I think the sound could be a bit thicker at the higher volumes, but I still think most people will like this speaker. I would certainly not recommend this for hip-hop or any bass heavy style of music. But most every other genre should sound great through this speaker.

Custom Bluetooth speaker with great sound

The UE Boom 3 sounds great and I like that I can set it anywhere in the room or in the yard and hear it without constantly shifting the speaker around like many single direction speakers. I’m not sure what magic Ultimate Ears is doing inside this small speaker, but it pumps out loud sound with great audio quality and there’s a surprising amount of bass. The fabric feels great and has held up well over several months of testing indoors and out, which is important since this speaker is incredibly portable.

A great speaker if you're an outdoorsy type of person

from GSMArena

It's designed to be very rugged and can be submerged in water. It also has a very loud and powerful sound and comes with cool tricks that let you pair multiple speakers together to really wake up the neighbors.

With no microphone, no aux connectivity, no AptX codec support, and Micro-USB charging with no included charging adapter, it almost seems not worth the price. However, the speaker's attractive looks, strong water resistance rating, ability to float, and loud, clean sound are major redeeming factors. You can also take it pretty much anywhere with very little risk of damage to it.
