Warwick Daily News - - WEEKEND - WITH GE­OFF EGAN

The UE Me­gablast walks the line be­tween a smart and a blue­tooth speaker. It is the big­gest speaker of UE’s range, mak­ing it less por­ta­ble than the smaller and cheaper Me­ga­boom. Al­though it sounds bet­ter than the Me­ga­boom, it isn’t sig­nif­i­cantly bet­ter.

But if you have Ama­zon’s Alexa AI the Me­gablast re­ally comes into its own. Un­like UE’s smaller speak­ers the Me­gablast is fully Alexa com­pat­i­ble. And, as a speaker de­signed pri­mar­ily for mu­sic, the sound qual­ity is much bet­ter than Ama­zon’s own speak­ers. The Me­gablast is com­pat­i­ble with UE’S con­ve­nient Power Up dock for charg­ing. Com­bined with the dock, the Me­gablast is more com­fort­able as a smart speaker than some­thing to throw in your back­pack. Price $379.
