Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Ultimate Ears' Hyperboom is three times as loud and has six-and-a-half times the bass of Megaboom 3. The speaker supports four input sources -- two Bluetooth wireless, one 3.5mm auxiliary and even an optical input if you want to connect a game console, TV or PC. As a single speaker, it sounds much better than any UE Boom or UE Blast speaker.

Pros
  • Big, punchy sound
  • Compact design
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No wake-word voice control
  • No Wi-Fi

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The Hyperboom shined brightest when playing tracks with a considerable low end. Wi-Fi can offer better sound quality and eliminates the problem of phone calls interrupting a jam session. The Sonos Move is more refined, but theHyperboom is better for larger spaces and parties.

Pros
  • Powerful, dynamic sound
  • Excellent battery life
  • Easy to set up and use
Cons
  • No Wi-Fi

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The Hyperboom delivers a thunderous low-frequency depth and avoids distortion at top, incredibly loud volume levels. At more modest levels, the bass response is still quite full, but the tweeters do their part in making sure the bass doesn't overwhelm the mix. It's balanced, but there's definitely some sculpting happening in the highs and deeper lows.

Pros
  • Powerful, bass-forward sound signature
  • Water-resistant design
  • Easy to use app
Cons
  • No EQ in the app

The Ultimate Ears HYPERBOOM has a balanced mid and treble range. It can reproduce clear and accurate vocals and lead instruments. It gets really loud without a lot of compression, too. While it struggles to reproduce low-bass, the app offers a full graphic EQ.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and presets
  • Good soundstage
  • Gets loud without a lot of compression
  • IPX4 rating for water resistance
Cons
  • Lacks low-bass
  • Doesn't support voice assistants

Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following***:
UE Hyperboom is one of the most memorable speakers to hit the ‘portable’ Bluetooth speaker market in a long time. The speaker is way louder and produces more powerful bass than any other portable speaker I've used. It's more than loud enough to fill a room with chest-thumping audio, and you've also got the option of pairing up multiple Hyperbooms for an even louder, even bassier, stereo playback experience. At £359/$399, it surpasses other premium speakers like Apple's HomePod and Google's Home Max with built-in smart assistant support.

Pros
  • Powerful bass
  • Easy to use
  • Built-in aux-in
Cons
  • Not the most budget-friendly

Ultimate Ears Hyperboom boasts a strong audio performance. It has no problem filling a large living room or garden with party music. It delivers a very well-balanced soundstage and there's no shortage of bass. The 24-hour battery life is based on playing your music at 50% volume. On the whole, we would say that most genres can be played on this speaker.

Ultimate Ears HyperBoom is a big, heavy, and expensive Bluetooth speaker.

Its proprietary 90W barrel charger can fully charge this speaker in less than three hours. With four connection options, it's easy to see how this could be a formidable party speaker.

The Hyperboom is one of the best sounding portable speakers available. It has plenty of power to be heard above the chatter of a BBQ. 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.
