Hey everyone Jimmy with Jim’s review welcome back to another one of my videos so this might be my last Bluetooth speaker review for the year and next week I’ll be doing my top 5 so subscribe and turn on those notifications or speaking to the future right now if

You’re in 2019 be sure to YouTube search it on your end this is the UE boom 3 and mega boom 3 video has always been transparent you did send these over for review but my assessment was not altered in any way

I’ll be going over both pros and cons I’ll leave my affiliate links down in that video description below click on those for the most updated prices in real time you never know when these things might go on sale happen to me

When gyms review them and I’m here to help you make that purchase decision welcome everyone to another video all right don’t over the physical features first this is the first time at least for me instead of that thicker fabric

Mesh grille that we have Yui has had for a long time it’s now a thinner and slightly reflective material everyone’s a pins are a little bit different but I really like it it’s so subtle but it more importantly to me that feels a

Little bit more modern now both speakers retains the ip67 certification meaning it’s passed the test for being dust proof and water resistant for up to 30 minutes and up to 3 feet of water now the other mainstream competitors

Have the same certification as well but one thing that’s big you’ve got to make sure that these things float with my testing thankfully both Bluetooth speakers are good to bring to the pool or to the lake now with boom speakers

These things are built like tanks every Yui speaker I’ve done a drop test with they’ve never broken or failed to keep these numbers in mind the mega boom 3 is dropped proof from 3 feet or 1 meter and the boom 3 the smaller one is a bit more

Robust though at 5 feet or 1.5 meters watch this all right let’s take a look at the features and buttons the front heads your volume up and down pretty obvious here they’re huge but pressing both of

Them at the same time graciously gives you your battery life 70 percent charge now looking at the rear is still stuck with microUSB for some reason I wish to use the new connection USB C to have all my devices

Future-proof the one feature that is possibly somewhat out here wide earth would you put the charging light indicator located down here in the back recessed in and kind of under this flap as well why not have it on the power

Button up top so it can glow when it’s charging or fully charged that was my only gripe now as a side note the boom speakers do offer a wireless charging dock that does come in handy but it is sold separately

But the convenience of dropping the speaker down then just picking R it right up and just going that really comes in handy now better life is rated at up to 15 hours for the boom 3 and the mega boom 3 is rated at up to 20 hours

And with my test I achieved 12 hours and 50 minutes in 14 hours and 4 minutes respectively the claimed numbers might seem small but in real world testing at 50% vine that JBL charge for claimed up to 20 hours but instead I received a low

Nine hours and 14 minutes and for the sony xba-1 they also claimed up to 24 hours but I achieved 10 hours in 15 minutes the UE speakers actually did the best like getting back to the physical features the last part are the buttons

Up top you got power and pairing and right in the middle is this quote magic button what does it do now you have your basics like pause play and skip your music oddly you can only go forward you can’t go back on your songs

The magic is really the ability to play your playlist with the convenience of not needing to pull out your phone now through the Yui app you have to do this beforehand you set it up through there and then Jesus phone and the next time

Around you press and hold us down for three seconds and then your playlist will start playing even if your speaker’s off holding it down for three seconds to start the playlist your speaker will automatically turn on and

That’s really it for the magic now oddly I noticed holding down any of these buttons at four she doesn’t pull up assistant or Siri that’s possibly where you need to look at their mega blast and blast line but they only have Amazon

Alexa built-in so we might be out of luck but since we’re touching base on the app other features Yui includes are the ability to pair 100 plus of these speakers and have them all play at the same time very similar to JBL connect

Plus now I did confirm for those who have older speakers likely boom-boom to an Audi boom three mega boom and mega boom three can group these speakers together the Yui role and the Wonder boom and such are not able to group with

Each other now last time there is a built-in equalizer which you can alter the audio performance your liking and also on the app there’s this feature where you can make these speakers act like a wake up alarm now before we get

Into the audio test really quick Bluetooth strength Yui claims up to a hundred and fifty feet which is insane that’s bigger than my office building here but I did test this I got a hundred thirty five feet of straight line of

Sight so very very impressive here with both of these speakers I’m able to pair two different devices at the same time and less about connection I confirmed video did work great my Samsung and iPhone just as an FYI if you do pair

These three together group them together put them in party mode and have these both play at the same time video would then be out of sync that’s pretty common with a lot of Bluetooth speakers with the pairing feature so folks please put

On your earphones or a headphones for the 3d audio experience I’ll be using my professional binaural microphones and that’s the only way that you can listen to that spatial sound and the last bit here for those supporting my work please

Light up that comment section with those fire mode use and find me on Instagram all right folks here we go

because it’s

and there you have folks now both Yui speakers do get very very loud matter-of-fact –boom three felt as though it had the same loudness as the bigger mega boom three the only

Difference though the bigger mega boom offered more base as to be expected while the boom focused more on the mid and high frequencies both speakers are able to fill medium to somewhat large sized rooms starting with the mega boom

If you don’t have this speaker side by side with another competitor the speaker has good reasonable base but when you do have them side by side with a competitor you’ll notice the speaker doesn’t give off deep resonating bass I know it’s

Weird as Yui promotes thunderous bass on their webpage well you can hear it in my audio test and this is not a bad thing testing Yui products in general for the last shoot four to five years or so this is uese audio signature it’s hitting and

The upper end of low frequencies now I would have preferred a little bit more bass to compete with the JBL Xtreme – and the bose sound like revolve + which also offers 360-degree sound but keep in mind the mega boom 3 has over JBL is

That even disbursement of audio again 360 degrees and what Yui has over boast though is this is much more rugged than what the Soundlink offers the answer the boom 3 there is less base and less base compared to those competitors as well

But enough to still have this speaker enjoyable the boom 3 leans towards light punchy bass simply a flatter signature and the bottom end now as you get into the mid-range both of these speakers feels to be made for the outdoors

Because there’s slightly less bass but a stronger emphasis on the mid-range it cuts through the air having music heard in big open fields see in the park side of the pool on the boat the audio is interpreted as being much more audible

Now the quality on the other hand at personal listening levels it’s perfectly fun and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the speaker but at near and at maximum volume both of these speakers do get jumbled and even a little raspy at the

Upper mid to high frequencies the Yui speakers are also missing a bit of dimension and depth in favor for that 360 degree audio and when you do places in the middle of the room here anywhere you walk you’re

Getting this same amount of vine with no dead spots so my designation my consensus I guess you can say it’s not meant to be an audiophile bluetooth speaker if anything it’s meant to be this bulletproof rugged tossus anywhere

Get dirt sand water all over this thing and still have good music for general entertaining if you’re looking for a bit more immersive audio with the other major competitors out there you’re going to lose out on the amount of ruggedness

This speaker provides all right folks hopefully this video helped you in some way be sure to find me on Facebook or Instagram I’ll catch you guys later bye
