    FAQS :

    Aside from the price, what's the difference between the Blast and the Megablast?

    Answer: I wouldn't go with ue because my megaboom only lasted one charge before it died.

    Is this the original size? Blast+powerup?

    Yes, I believe so. It won't fit in my pocket at all! I can't measure it because it's not in front of me, but it's at least a foot long and possibly 4 inches in diameter?? For the price, it's a fantastic Bluetooth speaker.

    Is it possible to combine the Blast and Megablast?

    Answer: According to UE information, you should be able to couple them for stereo, however the blast and Megablast speakers do not pair with the Boom speakers or any other speakers.

    Is it possible to link this to a Bluetooth speaker from a third party?

    Answer: I have two megabooms and one boom 2, which I use with the UE app to set up a party. According to my understanding, only UE boom and megaboom speakers may be connected, not third-party speakers. For features, I recommend looking at the megablast spec sheet.

    Have you have any issues with Alexa reminders? My Blast only broadcasts the first of five daily reminders and ignores the others.

    Answer: I have to tell Alexa to remind me of my reminders on a regular basis. She's prone to forgetfulness.

    Is there a significant difference between the UE Boom 3 and the UE Boom 2?

    Yes, the UE Boom 3 offers a little richer and cleaner sound, especially when used with the Boom app's EQ. However, if you want to wait till the UE Boom 3 is out, go ahead. The UE Boom 3 is a little bigger, and it can be charged using the Power-Up charging port, which is offered separately. It floats in water as well.

    Will I get genuine stereo meaning and right and left channels if I connect two of these? using a laptop running Windows

    Answer: It can only be true if both speakers are mono and the source's signal sends the picture to both speakers, resulting in a 'real' stereo image. Otherwise, one or two speakers produce a stereo impression with neither being in mono. They combined certain instruments panned to one side (i.e. mono) and then the same for the opposite side (i.e. stereo), extending the sound stage. It seems more difficult than it is, but unless this is a MONO speaker, you won't get a (stereo) sound with two, but rather two stereo speakers coupled together.

    How long does it take for a battery to charge?

    Answer: It's a little faster than the others... if you hit + and - at the same time, it'll tell you how much battery you have, like 45 percent or something. Description: ue blast vs boom 3
