Overview

Our take on the UE WONDERBOOM

The UE WONDERBOOM portable speaker is easy to carry — it's about the size of a softball. But this compact Bluetooth speaker kicks out powerful 360-degree sound with solid bass. And it's completely waterproof. So take it into the shower or out on the lake...it even floats! With a 100-foot Bluetooth range, you can keep your paired smartphone safe and dry away from the water.

UE WONDERBOOM portable Bluetooth speaker

The UE WONDERBOOM floats on the surface of the water and cranks out your tunes.

Big sound you can hold in your hand

The UE WONDERBOOM portable speaker is easy to carry — it's about the size of a softball. But this compact Bluetooth speaker kicks out powerful 360-degree sound with solid bass. And it's completely waterproof. So take it into the shower or out on the lake...it even floats! With a 100-foot Bluetooth range, you can keep your paired smartphone safe and dry away from the water.

Built for outdoor fun

The WONDERBOOM can be submerged down to a meter for up to 30 minutes, and still rock the party when you fish it out of the drink. The protective covering is dirt-proof, so you can use the WONDERBOOM at the beach. When it gets sandy, just wash it off with water.

Tap to play

When your smartphone or tablet isn't close by, you can use the super simple control buttons on the WONDERBOOM. Those big plus and minus signs on the side aren't decorative — they're the volume controllers. Tap the top of the BOOM 2 to play or tap twice to skip the song. It's that easy.

Couldn't be happier with the product performance combined with the reasonable price. Thankful that Crutchfield was able to provide all the "how to" info that the manufacturer apparently felt was unnecessary. My tech skills are limited to which end of the wheelbarrow do I need.

Easy to use. Got one for Christmas and bought another in January. Instructions on how to pair were sketchy. Looked at an online video site and found the pairing button is in the center of the top. They sound great outside with Accu Radio app.

Great speaker for the cost. Used it on a 3 day camping trip and it held charge great and had no problem handling the rough and wet conditions.

Pros: Small, waterproof, and doesnt weigh too much.

Cons: Battery life degrades a little quicker at full volume but that is to be expected.

I'm so glad I bought this

This little speaker is impressive. The sound it puts out is astonishing for its compact size. It puts out sound in all directions, making it useful in so many situations - home or travel. I'm so pleased I bought this - it is just the right portable speaker.

Pros: Sound quality, size, ease of use, durability

Cons:

Buy it

Anonymous from Chardon, OH on 10/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good things come in small packages. I would have given it a 5 but for the lack of instructions. You have to google the product to get a manual. And yet the inside material doesn't even tell you that. Sound is a little muffled sounding, but bang for the buck, you can't beat it. Haven't tried throwing it into a bucket of water to try out its waterproof rating. Buy it!

Pros: Value Sound Power Ease of use

Cons: Lack of instructions and where to get it.

Great speaker for use on the road or at home

Paul from Jersey City, NJ on 8/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this product for use while on vacation. For its size, the WONDERBOOM puts out a very nice and full sound with a solid amount of bass. For use at the beach or in a cabin or even at the office, this unit is ideal, especially given its compact size. I also found the battery life to be as advertised.

Pros: Sound quality and size

Cons: None

Frank from Berlin, NJ on 8/10/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are excellent. They have a big sound for a small speaker. There are two minor things that could be better. The pairing button is very well hidden under the UE logo on top of the speaker and at first I tried pairing them by pressing the Bluetooth button instead and that was a little frustrating. The other very minor issue is the loop for carrying or hanging is too small for any real useful purpose. I do like these speakers and would very much recommend them.

Pros: Great sound for the size.

Cons: Pairing button is very well hidden.

Great Speaker

Joe from Waynesboro, VA on 8/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This small speaker has excellent clarity and bass. I bought two of them for my daughter and son. They loved the speakers! They also like the fact that they could use them around the pool, beach, etc. In addition, we found out that both speakers could be linked from one source so you could have two speakers running for more sound. Simple to use and it took only 30 seconds to set up the speaker. I would recommend the UE Wonderboom to all who want good sound for a great price.

Pros: Compact, waterproof, shock resistant, ease of operation and great sound.

Cons: None

good sound for their size & price point, which is the main thing... would've given it 5 stars if the instructions for pairing multiple speakers weren't so cryptic. why no mention of the button beneath the logo? at least they have customer service reps...

Pros: good sound, surprising bass response & volume for the size

Cons: needs better instructions for pairing multiple speakers

Features

360-Degree Sound: The UE Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker is equipped with two 1.5" drivers and two 1.8125" x 2.5" passive radiators wrapped around the speaker enclosure for an immersive 360-degree sound.

Water & Drop Proof:  The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker is IPX7 rated and has been tested to withstand up to 3.3' (1 meter) of submersion for up to 30 minutes. Make sure the weather door for the microUSB port is on securely before taking the speaker near water. The Wonderboom is drop proof tested from up to 5' and sports a hanging loop on top so it can easily attach to almost any bag, bicycle, or backpack.

Note: While the speaker is waterproof, the chemicals and salt in your pool or the ocean can damage the waterproof seals over time if not rinsed off after use. It is highly recommend that you thoroughly rinse the Wonderboom with fresh water after using it in a swimming pool or the ocean. Once clean, allow the speaker to air dry completely before charging it.

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: With built-in Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP, you can wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth source device such as a smartphone, tablet, computer, or laptop to the UE Wonderboom speaker. The Wonderboom has an extended wireless Bluetooth range of 100'. The UE Wonderboom offers music playback control and multi-device pairing with dual connection.

  • Music Playback Control: You can control the music directly from the Wonderboom speaker without picking up your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth source device. Control functions included Play/Pause, Volume Up/Down, and Previous/Next Track.
  • Multi-Device Pairing & Connection: The Wonderboom can pair with up to 8 Bluetooth source devices and simultaneously connect with up to two devices. When you have two devices actively connected to the Wonderboom, you can easily switch between the two devices by simply starting the music from the second connected device and it will then become the source.
Notes:
  • The UE Wonderboom does not support Bluetooth hands-free phone communication.
  • The UE Wonderboom does not support auto-reconnection.

Double Up: You can connect two Wonderboom speakers together for bigger sound. The Wonderboom cannot connect with any other speaker.

Rechargeable Battery: The Wonderboom is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that provides up to 10 hours of music playback. To recharge the built-in battery, plug the included microUSB-to-USB cable into the Wonderboom's microUSB port located inside the weather door and into a standard USB port on your laptop or computer. You can also use an optional USB/AC power adapter (sold separately) to recharge the battery. Charging time is approximately 5.5 hours from a standard USB port and 2.8 hours from a USB/AC power adapter.

Note: The micro-USB charging cable included with the Wonderboom is not waterproof. Never charge the speaker if the micro-USB port, charging cable or connectors are wet, dirty or damaged. Always charge the speaker with a clean, dry micro-USB connector. If you think the cable or connector has been compromised in any way by water or other contaminants, do not use it to charge your speaker.

4 questions already asked

Hi Bob, I haven't tried your exact application, but the way Bluetooth seems to work in my experience is when a Bluetooth device links up with a source, it takes over and becomes the sources only output. [ Christopher  Jan 16, 2018 ]
You could. I just don't think I would. It is still electronics. The natural elements including temperature changes and moisture are going to be harsh on it. [ RONALD G  Jul 25, 2017 ]
I haven't done so yet . The only way I would leave it is because i forgot to bring it in the house . It is small enough to carry in and out of the house so I choose to not leave it out . Besides I like to use it in the house since the sound is great compared to anything else that I have at this time . Thank you . I highly recommend this product . [ Carl  Jul 25, 2017 ]
I have left it out for a few weeks but it doesn't rain much here in palm Springs. [ Mario  Jul 25, 2017 ]
