No "previous track", rewind, or fast forward functions, only play/pause & "next track".
I bought this speaker mainly to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and professional education courses I have to get through. As such, I use the “previous track” feature as heavily as the “next track”, and also heavily rely upon the ability to rewind or fast forward (controlling the track from your physical iPhone, this is achieved by holding down the forward or back button). However, the single “magic button” one button on the top of the speaker which is supposed to control music from the speaker without needing to access your device, can only do two things - press once to play or pause, tap twice to skip to next track. Tapping three times does nothing; upon reading the support page, it turns out “previous track” is not a function on this device, anything other than play\pause or next track must be done from your device. In addition, most accessories which use this single\double\triple tap system allow you to hold the second (or third) tap down as a press in order to (respectively) fast forward or rewind within a track. The speaker supports neither of these either. I would gladly edit and update this review should the manufacturer correct this and add any or all of these features on a update (the speaker can be updated through the app).
Bring back ability to turn off remote power!!!!
This has been one of the most versatile speakers (UE Boom series). My original UE Boom still lasts over 15 hours and hold its charges for well over 6 months. That was until I decided to get UE Megaboom.
It has a new app that allows you to remotely turn on or off the speaker. It seemed pretty cool but I was wondering how much battery drain it would be as it is essentially communicating with the speaker constantly. The app also told me my UE Boom needs a firmware update. After I did the update, the speakers power started draining like crazy in its off state. I left the power for both speaker in the “soft-off” state at 70%/40% battery for UE Megaboom and UE Boom. 5 days later with 0 usage, the battery went down to 40% and 20% respectively!! This is a TERRIBLE NEW FEATURE! Please add back the ability to turn off the ability to remote turn on the speaker. After I did a hard reset on the speakers, I left them unused for 2 weeks, and the battery is still 40%/20% today. I re-paired them today to my phone. But I expect the battery to continue to drain now the ability to turn them on and off remotely is back. Please add the ability to turn off this “feature” which many considers to be a bug.
Mega Boom hiccups
I love this speaker...up until now. I just recently downloaded the latest firmware to enhance my speaker even more. I didn’t think it could get any better. I use for work, even the crew was amazed when I first brought it to work for the first time 5 years ago. Now they’re wondering what I did to it. All it does now is hiccup every 1-3 minutes through a song and it’s very annoying. Plus the Bass response isn’t anyway near what it used to be. So I had to tell them it was sabotaged by its own developers. That was a big decision I made 5 years ago. I read a lot of reviews on different speakers before I decided on this one. I was actually leaning pretty hard on a Polk Bluetooth speaker before I made the decision on this one. For $300 I would think I’d get a longer life expectancy. I guess it’s always a gamble...review or not. Well...that’s my sob story of the week.
