Ultimate Ears Wonderboom vs. Megaboom: Does Size Matter?

Ultimate Ears is known for standing alongside the likes of JBL and Bose when it comes to producing good quality portable speakers, and these speakers can often be seen being used by dancers and performers all around Singapore, whether it is for producing good music for dance practice or rehearsals in open spaces.
