    Great Bluetooth Speaker

    This compact Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker has amazing sound quality. It delivers all that it’s advertised to do. I love that the sound fills the room and never sounds “tinny” like many other small speakers do. If there is anything negative to say, it would be that it makes a short, obnoxious “boom” sound when you turn it on and off. My teen daughter thinks the sound is cute, so maybe it won’t seem too obnoxious to others. I also like that you can use it while plugged into the mini-USB charger. I bought it in “Unicorn” color, so its very cute! Overall, I’m lovin’ it!

    The sound from this little guy is amazing. I was expecting good quality sound. I was surprised, though, at how much you notice the lower tones and bass from this thing. It has a full sound and is multidirectional, so you get good coverage wherever you are standing in relation to the speaker. It also gets quite loud, so if you enjoy that, you won't miss anything here. It feels robust and durable. The charging cable that comes with it is flat, so it folds really nice and small for travel without tangling. All of the buttons are tactile, but also low profile, which is excellent. Overall, I am 100% happy with this purchase. You really cannot go wrong buying this. Bonuses - it is waterproof, floats in water, and can be paired with another Wonderboom for even bigger sound at parties without the need for any app or phone software.

    We have a pool and have wanted a portable, waterproof speaker to enjoy music while swimming or relaxing by the pool. This little speaker is exactly what we needed. It is small and easy to move around. We can set it next to the pool, on a rock or even in a cup holder on a floatie. It is waterproof and durable. We have 2 kids and 2 dogs, so something is always getting splashed or dropped. TheUltimate Ears - UE Wonderboom Portable Bluetooth Speaker is great for our family. The sound quality is great and I like how compact it is. It easily synced with our cell phone and we can move it around anywhere. We are actually thinking about getting another one, so we have one on each end of the yard. Wonderful, powerful little speaker that can stand up to an active family in and around the pool. We also used it inside the house to listen to music in the kitchen. Overall, very impressed with this product. Love it!

    The biggest best sound in a small speaker

    This have to be the best wireless speaker I've ever own. The incredible clear sound and awesome bass makes me enjoy my music even better. One of the best features beside the awesome sound it's that it is waterproof, perfect for that pool party or to listening to your music in the shower, I sure will take mine to my beach trips this summer. So far the speaker hold its battery charged for at least the 10 hrs. Easy to pair it with your mobile phone or any other wireless device. Having the 360 degree sound make it easy to listen to your music in any angle without moving the speaker. It's compact, you can put it inside your backpack, etc and take it anywhere. Controlling the speaker from at least 100 ft away let me walk away without getting disconnected. When you want to pause or skip a song just tap on one of the button on top or just control it from your music devise. Perfect gift for any music lover.

    UE WONDERBOOM Port. Bluetooth Spkr works well

    Around April of this year (2017), I felt that after ~six or so years that it was time to replace my prior portable bluetooth speaker, so I went shopping at Best Buy. The salesperson was very helpful and was the primary reason that I chose Ultimate Ears' (UE) entry level bluetooth speaker, the WONDERBOOM. I like its short (4" tall), small cylindrical size, its sound quality, and its waterproof versatility in that I can take it into my shower and have unimpeded sound right there with me. I can only think of one recommendation that I could make to UE regarding the The short recharging cord is a flat bold and bright yellow. Of the few faults that I find with this unit is that the recharging cord is too short at less than a foot; I believe that it should be a minimum of two feet in length. Overall, I truly enjoy the WONDERBOOM and anticipate many years of listening pleasure.

    Nice Sound in a Small Package

    I'm loving this little guy so far. The Best Buy rep actually recommended it to me when I told him my price range and I'm glad I listened to him. I'm surprised at the nice range of sound, including some decent base, that pours out of such a small speaker. I also like the rope loop on top that makes it easy to hang the speaker just about anywhere. I'll be taking this speaker to the park, fishing and camping to give it a good test. Pairing is simple and reliable with my android phone and tablet. I've tried it in the shower already with no worries. My rep found this speaker on Amazon for a slightly lower price and matched it for me. I bought a 2-year replacement plan, which I thought was pretty reasonable, so I'm expecting to enjoy my speaker for a pretty long time. I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

    Incredible little speaker with a big sound!

    I was surprised to hear the sound from this little speaker when I fired it up. It does have a bit of weight, so I had some hope of good sound as I removed it from the package. It paired almost immediately and the sound was very good right from the start. It's small size makes it easy to transport and the loop on the top allows it to be hung from any hook. The Bluetooth makes it an easy connection to just about any modern device. It does not have a wired connection (that I could see) so it is limited to wireless devices. The ability to control the volume and advance songs makes it very convenient and the large + and - symbols make it pretty much idiot-proof! The incredibly small size and excellent sound from this small speaker makes it very easy to recommend to anyone looking for a speaker they can carry around and share their sound with others.

    I was looking for a little something to drag around the backyard and provide tunes from my phone while I did yard work. The size was about right but how could this small package really grab anyboyd's attention. It does this by having excellent sound quality with decent bass extension all the while being waterproof, shockproof and having a 12 hour battery life. It's not the one to get if you plan on playing loud enough to drive the neighbors into a frenzy. You can also get 2 and pair them together for a pseudo stereo set up with twice the volume. I considered the small Bose that looks likes an overgrown hockey puck but its a one trick pony, bass being its forte. The Wonderboom definitely gets the job done for me.

    I bought this to replace an ancient boombox a while back. While the sound is pretty alright for it's size and it keeps a charge like a beast, there is an issue if you're in a dual OS household. Boyfriend has an iPhone/Windows laptop combo, I have a Samsung/Macbook one. There's something about bluetooth audio devices and Apple products straight up hating each other, because the UE was the second time we experienced pairing issues due to a Windows/Android device being connected first. There's an easy workaround for it, but we found it kind of unnecessary to do all of the time. Ended up going with a JBL Flip 4 instead, which ended up having a way bigger sound and pairs to our phones perfectly (still won't connect to my Macbook though.)

    This speaker was a little bigger than I was thinking but after hearing it I understand why it is a bit bigger. When you play music with it the sound it produces is great from a bluetooth speaker. The sound does sound like it is 360 as some of my other bluetooth speakers has only half of it as the speaker. It pairs really easy but I have other UE speakers and this is the first to not have it's own app. I did place this speaker while it was operating into the sink to test the waterproof portion and it worked perfectly. That is a huge plus as I had a speaker get wet from the rain and it never functioned correctly after. Plus now we can use it at the beach as the range on it is the best of all my current bluetooth speakers. I would estimate it worked up to around 50 feet or bit more where my others were 30.

    Very Good Audio Quality. Solid Bass.

    The UE Wonderboom bluetooth speaker delivers solid room filling sound. It has good bass and music had low distortion. Connecting to the device via my iPhone was a cinch. I like the speaker design and it doesn't feel too lightweight which makes it feel like it contains quality components. Comes with a 2 year limited hardware warranty. The Wonderboom is rated to have 10 hours playback time and I had it on for 7+ hours with decent charge to go. I did not test the speaker's IPX7 waterproof ability but that is definitely a plus for people who use it in a shower, pool side or it rains. Overall I am pleased with the UE Wonderboom bluetooth speaker. You get what you pay for here and what you get is a portable speaker that delivers excellent 360 sound, daylong battery life and is solidly constructed.

    This little cutie was purchased as a gift for a teen, who previously had a Bose that had stopped working suddenly (probably taken into the shower too often). It was tempting to get a larger speaker, but this one is a really great size! It has awesome sound quality and is plenty loud enough for a dorm room or party on the patio. It's small enough to sit anywhere or put in a backpack. The loop is great for hanging up in the shower (Yay, it's waterproof!). The Bluetooth connects easily to a phone for playing your favorite playlist and the speaker can also connect to another one if you had two (we don't, so we have not tried that feature). This speaker was definatly a good value. I didn't need to spend more or go larger to get a loud great sounding speaker. I would definatly buy it again!

    I visited the Best Buy store with my mind set on a mini Harman Kardon portable speaker, not only for brand reputation, but because I already own one and I really like it. Unfortunately the store didn't have it available in stock, so I browse for other brands. Decided to ask the rep for his advice, and he recommended this Ultimate Ears for the price range I was shopping for. I like the design, it's portability, and the sound is better than you would expect for its size. My wife loves it. We use it for the pool, patio and even the beach. Definitely recommed it you're not looking for extreme ultimate crispy & deep bass sound. It's worth the price and it's economical. It also comes in blue and I believe green. I opted for black. What are you waiting for?, go get yours.

    Wowowow. So glad I made this purchase. Tested this little guy out on a camping trip this past weekend and it blew us all away. Its small, light weight, and with the bright blue color I picked, super easy to find when you're rummaging around in your tent. The sound on this thing is really impressive. Really clear sound and nice bass for something so little. Plus it can get REALLY loud. We have a Google Home and Google Home mini at home and the UE Wonderboom has way better sound then the Mini. Plus, portability is a no brainer. Love that it has the loop on top to attach to a backpack.

    Purchased this on 7/29/18 and now on 9/4/18 the speaker is faulty. I picked this instead of the Bose only because it had a place to hook the speaker to my SUP. The speaker sounds great. I like the ease of the buttons. However, the speaker got wet once. I repeat. The waterproof speaker got wet once and now is possessed. The volume randomly turns up on its own and doesn't stop so that you end up with a constant beeping noise. The double tap of the ue doesn't skip songs anymore. Seriously... this speaker is a piece of junk and only decent if you plan on never getting it wet ever.

    What a great little speaker! Syncing it with my Android tablet was super easy. I fired up my music and... WOW, what a sound. My music sounded excellent on this speaker. The bass effect was very nice, not too much. When I mentioned to my kids that it was waterproof, they took it upon themselves to test it. They grabbed the speaker, ran out into the backyard and jumped in the pool with it. I was not only amazed that the speaker stayed connected to my tablet, but it still worked in the pool. It did float, but not enough to hear the music well. I could the music was still playing, but it was muffled by floating mostly below the surface of the water. With the summer coming, it will be nice to have music outside by the pool and not worry about my kids getting it wet.

    This was a purchase for my wife, with the intended use being audio books, podcasts and some music. Pairing was simple, and the controls are intuitive but limited. Sound volume was good for average room sizes, and the sound was pretty good with a bias toward the midrange. This allows for decent music quality, but it can be a little muddy for plain voice applications like the audio books. Bass response had a nice feel, but is not especially powerful. I purchased this on sale, and feel that it was a good value, but would probably explore other options if it was full price.

    I was looking for a good wireless speaker that I could mostly use in my work truck for road trips. I had been reading many reviews for different speakers and kept coming back to the UE-Wonderboom. I happened to be at BestBuy last week to return a headset and saw this speaker was on sale plus an additional $10 off on an Amazon price match... I picked it up hoping for the best. As soon as I got to my truck I easily paired it to my phone and tested it out. I am very impressed with the all around sound and Volume of the unit it was a win win for me. We can now drive cross country with tunes, Comedy, News and info. I am very happy with the quality and rich sound Great Little Bluetooth Speaker!

    I decided to buy a couple of these for a traveling Bluetooth speaker system and also as they can be thrown in my backpack and taken anywhere. The ability to pair the WONDERBOOM’s together is crazy nice. We had about 20 people at a BBQ and several other folks had the UE WONDERBOOM’s and we paired them all together…what an amazing sound. We had them dispersed throughout the yard and had some in the house and never lost connectivity. Great sound and great fun to have at a get together. I highly recommend if you’re looking for great sound at a reasonable price with the ability to expand your mini system.

    I use portable bluetooth speakers constantly, but mine finally needed to be replaced. I was looking for a speaker that had a really rich quality sound, not that cheap bluetooth sound. I did a lot of research, and also asked the employees which speaker they would buy if they wanted quality sound. They recommended the wonderboom hands down, telling me it would blow the other speakers away. I purchased it, an it did not disappoint! This speaker is awesome and I use it constantly. I get a lot of other people asking me what kind of speaker it is because they want to go buy one. I recommend that you do the same! Great sound and strong!
