The Wirecutter

The best Alexa speaker for backyards

from The Wirecutter

This speaker sounds good, is ruggedly built and waterproof, and runs on battery power for 12 hours, but the microphones aren’t the best.

Ultimate Ears is on excellent form here. Alexa’s inclusion in a portable speaker is a bonus, but the Megablast’s real strength lies in its hugely enjoyable and mature performance. Add in all the perks of its waterproof and durable build, the funky and easy to use design, and you’ll find that it’s £270 well worth spending - or £100 if you can grab it on sale.

Waterproof, robust and sounds great

from Expert Reviews

At £270, the Megablast isn’t cheap, but it certainly is an impressive smart speaker, with its waterproofing and built-in battery. With its stylish design, robust build quality and bright colours, Ultimate Ears has created a great-looking speaker as well.

Overall, the Ulitmate Ears Megablast is a great speaker, and is obviously supper rugged, offers amazing durability, 360 degree sound, Amazon Alexa functionality, and it’s always a plus when something is waterproof. Keep in mind that there is not as much bass as some of its competitors, but if you are more focused in clarity and durability then this speaker is something I definitely recommend.

Portable, powerful, pretty

The Megablast delivers on all counts, giving you a versatile sound solution that you can take anywhere. At home, the sound will easily fill a room while also providing access to the Internet of Things and even Alexa. No other speaker in the $$$ range can do all that — and this makes the Megablast an easy option for our top pick.

If you have $249 in your pocket and you’re looking for a fantastic speaker, it’s easy to recommend the MEGABLAST. Again, this is one of, if not the, best sounding speakers I’ve ever heard. While you can find other speakers that put out great sound or louder speakers, I believe the MEGABLAST is a great combination of quality and max volume.

Quite a solid package

from PhoneArena

The UE Megablast delivers a lot of value, even at this price point. IP67 waterproofing, colorful appearance, and loud, enviable sound quality top off quite a solid package. Alexa’s integration could be deepened, as could the acoustics, but even so, it’ll be pretty hard to regret purchasing one of these.

A great performer, waterproof and robustly built

from Pocket-lint

If you're accident prone, crave volume or have a swimming pool at home, however, then the Megablast could be the ultimate portable speaker. And it sounds way better than any Amazon Echo product.
