Ultimate Ears' Hyperboom is three times as loud and has six-and-a-half times the bass of the Megaboom 3. The speaker supports four input sources -- two Bluetooth wireless, one 3.5mm auxiliary and even an optical input. With a press of a button you can switch between the sources and have two phones connected via Bluetooth at the same time.

Ultimate Ears' Hyperboom is a massive Bluetooth speaker. It has 4.5-inch woofers, a pair of 1-inch tweeters, and two passive radiators. The speaker shined brightest when playing tracks with a considerable low end. The Sonos Move is more refined, but the UE Hyperbooms is better for larger spaces.

Ultimate Ears Hyperboom is one big hunk of Bluetooth speaker. It's a perfect party speaker and earns our Editors' Choice in the big-but-portable Bluetooth speaker category. At $399.99, the speaker also needs to pack some serious power and deliver a compelling audio experience.

Pros[**]

  • EQ adjusts sound signature according to your environment
  • Optical input for gaming consoles and media streamers

The Hyperboom is the first in the UE collection to break away from the cylindrical design. It's more serious than the rest of the colourful, fun-looking UE speaker collection, but given the price, that's understandable. The speaker has a built-in adaptive EQ enabled by default, intelligently tweaking the input depending on the environment the speaker is in with impressive results. Despite all that power, it doesn't really have any knock-on effects on the mids and highs.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful bass output
  • Easy to use
  • Built-in EQ
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Ultimate Ears Hyperboom is a powerful party speaker that allows you to easily take your music from inside your home to the great outdoors. It delivers a very well-balanced soundstage with powerful bass, it can reach high volumes without distorting the sound. We also liked the multi-point pairing feature, and in practice it allowing you to seamlessly switch between DJs at a party without your party being plagued by awkward silences.

The $399 Ultimate Ears HyperBoom Bluetooth speaker is one of my favorite gadgets of 2020. It has great sound quality, near-360-degree sound delivery, long-lasting battery life, and elegant design. In this diamond-shaped speaker, the two 4.5-inch subwoofers face the rear.

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
UE Hyperboom is one of the best sounding portable speakers available. Its big bass is balanced nicely with treble and midrange. Only the Sonos Move, with slightly better bass and vocal performance, beats it in sound quality for portable speakers. It has good battery life, a convenient handle so you can take it with you.

Pros[**]
  • Great sound quality
  • IPX4 water resistance rating
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Volume controls can be too sensitive
