    I absolutely love that I can fit such a big booming sound in my purse anywhere I choose to go. I mean the battery lasts such a long time and it’s louder than a lot of other speakers I’ve come in contact with. Plus a lot of my church friends love the fact that it looks as though there is a cross on the front of it lol even though it’s just a volume button they love to get a lil more meaning out of it . I take it everywhere with me and keep it on a tight leash bc it’s already almost been stolen numerous times.. I better keep a close eye out for them crooks lol. Haven’t had a better speaker yet .. love love love it !!!!!

    The speaker is small and compact yet the sound exceeds it. I bought it and there was a problem with it, but I was able to go back to best buy and exchange it out for another one. The sound would go out every so often within the initial purchase and turn-on. I knew it must've been defective so I was able to just switch out since it wasn't due to me mishandling or anything of those sorts. With the new one, the sound was super loud! The ability to link two together is great as well. Battery life is amazing as well.

    My first impression was a 4 start due to a off pitch sound but I found that I needed to pair the device again and it corrected the problem causing me to bump the score to 5 stars. I can;t find anything wrong with this speaker or that I don't like. What I like most about this speaker is how easy it is to pair. It has funky tones that let you know it is pairing mode. The speaker offers great sound from a small device. It is waterproof which will come in handy It has really good 360 sound. They claim you can pair it with a companion giving you two speakers. While I have not done that, it is cool that it can be done. I really like this speaker after a couple days of using it.

    Obviously, this speaker won't have bass that you'll feel in your chest, but seriously, the sound is pretty darn impressive for its small size. It's the perfect size to tote with you to the beach or pool. Will definitely be loud enough for everyone to hear within some distance. The Bluetooth range is pretty impressive as well. Also, I did test its waterproof ability, as I had it on the shower floor as I showered, and the music played uninterrupted. Looking forward to bringing this to the beach this summer.

    The Wonderboom portable speaker is a nice design except I'm not much of a fan of the huge volume controls on the front, as the positioning of them looks too much like a cross. Otherwise, I found the sound to be descent for the size. It was loud enough to be heard easily over the sound of a running hot tub. And yes, it does float, but because Bluetooth doesn't travel through water, the music does stop until you retrieve it from the water. The battery appears to be phenomenal, as I have yet to recharge it since I got it. I would rate the sound not quite as good as an Amazon Echo, but considering the volume, portability, and water resistance, I think it is pretty good.

    This little dude is about the size of a softball, but has some great sound quality. We set it on the bathroom sink during showers, in the kitchen while doing dishes or cooking dinner, or the garage while working out or tuning up the cars... this WonderBoom is very versatile. Connects QUICKLY via bluetooth and you can use the +/- buttons on the device to control volume or your phone/tablet. There's two buttons on top of it - a sync and a power button. Botta Boom, Botta Bing, Botta WonderBOOM! Also, for added bass, slap this guy in a corner! 10/10 Would buy again!

    I gifted this to my boyfriend for his birthday in April. He has used it constantly ever since. He ended up leaving it at the park and list it, but we went out and and each purchased one after that. This thing is LOUD. Especially for it's size. Connecting both goddess you a huge sound. We have used then at the pool and even in the shower with no problems. Only thing that could be improved is the sound quality at times.dont get me wrong still very good, but it could use a tiny bit of improvement. I constantly recommend this to others!

    after listening to all the speakers in the store I would give this guy what you might call the "best in class rating" of cheap speakers. oddly, only the salmon pink/red color was on sale. points are lost for this wanting to disconnect from my computer somewhat frequently where they previous speakers I had didn't have this issue. the Bluetooth just randomly cuts out. sometimes turning the speaker off and on fixes it, other times it take repairing the speaker.

    Very impressed by this little device. It has a good distance range before the connection gets disrupted. The full range sound is great and the volume is very usable even near busy streets. I mainly use this speaker while out on photoshoots for my production business 42 Pros and all of the models that I have been able to photograph have enjoyed being able to connect via bluetooth and play their music while being in front of the cameras. Great investment especially for the price!!!

    Another win with UE!

    I had the UE Mini Boom for 4 years and absolutely loved it. So when it was stolen I knew I should look for more from UE. I was surprised to see they had introduced waterproof, dustproof, and the ability to float to their current product line. I considered the Roll 2 and Boom 2 also, as well as some other models by JBL, Sony, etc. But UE still wins, and this model in particular for the great balance in its sound, form factor, dustproof rating, and damned cuteness!

    My initial review of this product was not really positive - I didn't see the point of something like this. However, after several months, I use this as a speaker for a tablet that uses iheartradio and the speaker is quite good at this application - very portable and holds a charge for at least two nights of play (I listen as I go to sleep). Bluetooth connects well. Charging is problematic as it is difficult to get connected, but once you learn, that issue disappears. I'm not sure if this is worth the price yet, but this seems to have positive aspects that I had not considered in an earlier review.

    Leaving for a vacation to meet up with old friends, I ran into Best Buy to find a waterproof bluetooth speaker. The in-store display model sounded good, and it was on sale, so I grabbed the WONDERBOOM. A great choice! In real-world usage, the range on this little speaker is surprising. Highs don't sound tinny, and there's sufficient bass for most music. Good power; great battery life. I haven't tested the water resistance, but I'll likely be buying another to pair for stereo sound out on the deck. I recommend this for value and performance!

    Little Speaker, Big Sound

    This little speaker surprised me. It has great sound and can get very loud, but it never loses sound quality as it gets louder. It was super easy to pair, coming up as Wonderboom. I've have a few that come up as the model number or something else that isn't very straightforward. Nice touch. The carrying ring is perfect for moving or carrying with you and can clip it to or hang it on something. It's light enough that you could really put a finger through it and hold it without much bother. or just leave it on the counter and listen. Great sound and extremely portable. I'd highly recommend this speaker.

    I bought the UE Wonderboom for my dad and was so impressed with the sound and the ability to play music from 2 speakers, I had to have one! The JBL’s I have don’t do that, maybe the new ones do but mine aren’t new. I love music and like to listen to it pretty loud. I like that it’s drop proof and water proof. The sound is amazing, I want 2 now! Get it you won’t regret it expecially the 10 hours of play time on a charge!!

    Considering the size and price, this is an awesome product. The sound quality was suprisingly good, much better then one would expect. It is also loud enough for my purposes. As for connectivity I have never experienced any issues between the paired devices even when I move far away in my relatively large yard. An added bonus is the battery seems to last quite a while. If you want something portable and sturdy but don't need it to make the walls rattle then you definitely cant go wrong with this product.

    Bought 2 of these speakers for my household. They were definitely worth it. The music has great clarity even when turned up to the max. We tested other Bluetooth speakers that were on display and this one was by far the best. No distortion and loud. Bonus is that you can Bluetooth two of them together and have even louder music for a party or event. On top of that the speaker is water-proof, like it literally can float in the pool. So no worries about little ones splashing or dropping in the toilet. Great battery life. Reasonably priced when compared to other similar products.

    This little speaker is quite impressive in the sound department. It offers a good 360 field of sound. The mid and highs are clear and strong. The low bass is impressive given that it’s not a subwoofer. Battery life is also great in comparison to other similar devices. The biggest selling feature is the almost bullet proof performance. It floats in water, it’s water and mud proof, and it does well when dropped. This I deal for the traveler parties. For additional sound pair up 3+ units to have a yard full of music.

    I don't really see the point of having this product anymore. How they advertised it I was quite excited thinking it would float around the pool or something like the picture on the box shows or just something that I'd never seen. It's a basic speaker it's extremely small and the 360 sound they advertised is false. There's a speaker in the front and back and it leaves the side vulnerable. For review purposes I plased it in water and of course it flipped on the side and the sound was not clear anymore due to the blindspots on the sides. Great advertising it sucks you in.. but pointless

    I needed a small, portable unit with good sound for use in the humid environment of a bathroom, in different parts of the home, and also away from home and this unit does so all of that! Great battery life, as well. The sound, for the price, is the best that I experienced in its price range and it is built to last! I use the Wonderboom daily and only charge it every 3-4 days, if that. Very pleased with this unit!! Highly recommend!

    Nice little speaker that works good and sounds decent. I bought this to keep at my summer place and bring to the beach. Don’t expect the world from a sub $100 speaker. Instructions provided are lame. It took me a while scouring the internet to figure out how to check the battery level. (Press + - together. 3 tone sound means full charge, 2 tone means 1/2 charged, 1 tone means battery is low. I like the fact that it has a 2 year manufacturer warranty!
