Honestly the Megaboom is down right fantastic. At 179$ (which its been a few times) there isnt a whole lot that competes with it.

Has anyone listened to these side by side? I love my UE Boom 2 but wouldn't mind an upgrade to the Megaboom at this price point.

i have a the megaboom, and while its a great upgrade to the UE boom 2, its not worth it if you already own the boom 2.

I would wait for the megablast to go on sale. supposed to be 4x more powerful than the megaboom.

I bought the boom 2 during the last sale. It was a good little speaker. Then found a MEGABOOM on Usedvictoria and bought that. Played side by side through the app (so same volume, same song, same time) and the MEGABOOM is downright amazing. Really impressed by it. I don't know if it's worth buying the mega as an upgrade if you have the boom 2 already, but given the (somewhat) limited price difference, I highly recommend the mega.
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

Megaboom > Boom 2 for sure, have both.

It's bassier and its fuller sound is quite noticeable outdoors over the tinny B2.

Should keep in mind these are portable speakers you take to the beach or someone's pool etc. At home, multi-speaker sub systems will beat any portable.

Ok my kids are on Baseball teams and we wanted a speaker that could be used to play music during practices or even during games between plays.

So think Baseball field, crowds on both sides, would this be the right fit? Should I consider something else?

I was considering a rugged player that was water resistant , had a handle to carry, and that had a mic input but Mic isn’t a 100% requirement.

I came across this and it’s $190 on Costco but I don’t know how the choices in this thread compare and what’s my best move?

I’m terrible when it comes to audio specs and knowing what’s what.

Anyone here know their stuff and can help me select?

Most likely the color, the last sale for the Boom2 was different color also.

Personally I use my Boom2 in the shower and I love it, the form factor is much more portal when I use my stroller or any cup holders. The Megaboom is more substantial audio, but it also comes at a cost - more substantial in size. There's a perfect product for each use-case :)

I needed smaller, portable, and waterproof and the Boom2 fit the bill, plus at $99 you can buy 2x and stereo it :)

Colour, bought the black/sunrise one a couple of weeks ago for visibility, cheapest at the time.

I see 119.99$ for the Boom 2. Is the deal already over?
