The UE Boom 3 Review

The UE Boom 3 is, generally, extraordinarily like its forerunner. The huge changes come as expanded battery life (up to 24 hours in our tests) and shunning the little-utilized assistant port for an on-speaker play/delay catch. These two changes alone settle on it a far superior decision than the UE Boom 2, as the two models are as of now moving at comparable costs on the web. For those that need a speaker that can endure an entire dunking, can siphon out some volume, and is genuinely convenient, we think the Boom 3 is an extraordinary decision. In case you're searching for the best sounding speaker in this value go that can deal with a few components, despite everything we think the Bose SoundLink is a superior choice. Be that as it may, it is just water safe, though the Boom 3 is totally waterproof.

Our Analysis and Test Results

The UE Boom 3 offers incredible volume, strong sound, and a long battery life in a totally waterproof bundle. It is most likely the best trade off of sound quality, compactness, and size that we've found. In the event that you put to a greater degree a need on sound quality or movability you may like the Bose Sound Color II or the UE Roll 2 better, individually.

In the same way as other of UE's contributions, the Boom 3 fills an ideal specialty for those that need an entirely versatile and tough speaker, yet will convey a touch of additional load so as to show signs of improvement sound. As needs be, it left our testing with a moderately high by and large score.

The one relative frail purpose of the Boom 3's sound that consigns it from sounding extraordinary to simply sounding really great is its bass. In the event that anything we'd state the bass power is two or three ticks better than expected, which gives all music genuinely great profundity. Notwithstanding, it doesn't have that additional punch that a portion of the higher end speakers have (specifically the Bose models) that makes a genuinely full solid. That being stated, it certainly has an additional piling aiding of bass when contrasted with its progressively compact small kin, the UE Roll 2.

The Boom 3 sounds extraordinary falling slightly shy of the best entertainers in this measurement.

The Boom 3 sounds incredible, falling slightly shy of the best entertainers in this measurement.

With regards to lucidity, the Boom 3 is very noteworthy. All the acoustic pieces we tuned in to on it had incredible partition and digital broadcast has dependably had perfectly clear voices. In such manner, it is about neck and neck with the Bose SoundLink Color II and slightly behind the first rate Bose Revolve models.

Generally, the Boom 3 is a superior sounding speaker than the ultra-convenient models we tried like the UE Roll 2 and the Bose SoundLink Micro (however the Micro gets close). Indeed, it is outstanding amongst other sounding completely waterproof speakers we've tried. To show signs of improvement sound you're likely must minimization to a model that is water-safe as opposed to waterproof.

The new play/interruption and volume catches on the highest point of the speaker make it more utilitarian than its forerunner.

At 22 ounces, the Boom 3 is one of the lighter speakers in its volume/sound quality class. To get essentially lighter, you will need to run with the UE Roll 2 or the *Bose SoundLink Micro, the two of which forfeit a ton of volume. It is evaluated IP67, which means it is both impenetrable to clean and can be completely submerged in up to 1 meter of water. This makes it a substantially more sturdy alternative than any of the marginally better sounding Bose contenders, which are all lone water-safe. The barrel shaped shape will in general pack well, notwithstanding when your rucksack is overstuffed with towels and snacks, and the little convey circle gives you a chance to cut it to whatever you'd like with the assistance of a carabiner. By and large, this dimension of movability will fulfill everything except the individuals who organize pressing light over all else.

The Boom 3 is totally waterproof and its charging port is all around ensured.

Volume

The Boom 3 is stunningly uproarious given its size and waterproof family. We experienced no difficulty filling a little loft with sound while wrenching the volume to its maximum. Truth be told, the main models we tried that are more intense (like the JBL Charge 3 and the Bose SoundLink Revolve+) gauge over half more.

Battery Life

We were exceptionally awed with the Boom 3's battery life in our testing. In spite of the fact that UE asserts a battery life of 15 hours, the Boom 3 went well beyond in our testing, wrenching out music or an entire 24 hours on a solitary charge. This puts it towards the highest point of our battery life leaderboard, and decidedly into the charge-once-listen-all-end of the week class.

Esteem

Bluetooth speakers are an assorted class, and esteem to a great extent relies upon precisely what you're searching for. In the event that you need something that sounds great, can bark boisterous, is totally waterproof, and wouldn't fret a 1.5-pound weight, at that point the $150 UE Boom 3 is an incredible esteem. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you don't require finish waterproofing the $130 Bose SoundLink Color II improves sound for less.

The Boom 3's battery endured an entire 24 hours in our testing.

End

For those searching for a decent harmony between sound quality, finish waterproofness, sensible weight, and uproarious volume, the UE Boom 3 is an extraordinary speaker. In the event that you esteem any of those perspectives considerably more than the others, in any case, there is likely a superior speaker for you out there.
