Can’t praise this product enough. We had previously bought the single speaker and have used them with great success. I bought these as a present and the recipient is absolutely thrilled ( which doesn’t happen often).
Considering it’s size it really does produce an impressive sound. Battery life is good even on close to max volume.
Why do brooke think that there is no need for jack input. If you are watching a video from your laptop or any device and you want to use your bluetooth speaker there is a latency. I assumed it will have one in due to owning a previous model.
Love the bright cute colours and design. Just perfect for going on holiday, picnics, pools. Sound is mighty for it’s size. I like the bass on the ue boom and wonderboom, very rounded sound. I also own a bose link mini ii which is also great but i find this one more versatile for carrying around and having fun, it doesn’t seem as fragile. Very happy with my purchase.
Purchased mainly for use in the bathroom so wanted something showerproof, beyond that i went on reviews. Then i saw this colourful wee beast and knew i had to have it. Delightfully packaged and vibrantly coloured, even the charge cable is bright yellow, i fell in love with this tiny speaker and it makes me smile every time i look at it (i know, i need to get out more, you’re not the first to think it)the sound quality to my musically challenged ears is loud, punchy, and clear; although in fairness i do not have it at full volume as i doubt my neighbours would appreciate it. It started off as a bathroom speaker but now pretty much follows me around as i do house and garden chores. After leaving it in both the shower and a rain storm i can confirm it is waterproof.
It’s not a patch on my jbl xtreme but that’s comparing apples to oranges. I was after a speaker that i could take on my travels (the xtreme is too. . Xtreme)so i wanted something with the oomph but less size and weight. This fits the bill perfectly. The 360 sound is really good and the durability looks ideal. I haven’t fully tested it yet but it will travel within the next month or so and i expect it to excel. So currently, with my limited testing, i’m impressed.
- Build quality amazing, sound quality better.
- Boom! Shake The (Small) Room.
- A rugged and compact speaker
A very clever little box, it’s not hi-fi quality sound, but what would you expect for the size. It’s certainly loud, and sounds surprisingly unforced at high volumes. The only downside i’ve noticed is that (on several ios devices at least) you have to go into bluetooth settings to connect it to your device, as for some reason it doesn’t appear in the airplay output list. This is a minor gripe, given that you usually have to turn it on before each use (it turns off automatically after ?15 mins idle time). By the way, we have dunked it in water a few times to test its ip rating, leading to much time at bath time as our children try to hear it playing underwater.
Great sounds (for rock and dance type music), not so great with other types but still good. Reasonably loud for what it is, pretty clear sound, dropped it once about a metre and still works.
I bought it as a gift – but kept it. The sound quality is really good, i can’t fault it, and certainly not at this price. I play it a lot while in the bath and have discovered it really is waterproof – i knocked it in a bath of water by accident and it kept playing. If i had to find fault, i might say it’s hard to adjust the volume using my feet as the controls are fairly flush to the sides of the wonderboom, but that’s nothing. And if i were to add a button, it would be a button to skip to the next track. But these are minor matters, i think it’s both tough and high quality, comparable to the bose bluetooth speaker i have that cost nearly 3x as much. The wonderboom is simple to use, easy to connect using bluetooth and i’d certainly buy another if gave away this one.
Considering the size of this small device, it certainly kicks out some serious sound.
Brilliant little speaker, and when you have two and pair them, they will fill a very large area with great sound for such a small speaker. Well made, string and waterproof. I like ue products, their high end headphones are so good, i have the triple fi 10s which is what made me choose these speakers.

I am so pleased with this little bomb. It sounds great, is so hardy, and so compact and user friendly. Our house would be lost without it. We took it on holiday, on a boating holiday etc, and it was great for us all to listen to some music, the children to listen to audible book etc. My son tested in the water and that seemed to work, but i will not be trying to replicate that. But it is good to know that if i use it in the bathroom and it gets a little wet, it will still go on. The sound quality is great for me, and my husband agrees, especially for the money, but then we are not huge sound fanatics.
However for amplifying films on an ipad the blutooth delay puts the sound and video out of sync. If you need it for film as well as music, then get a unit that also has a wired connection option.
Great sound , i’m not going into technical details here but for the money they give a good tone, pitch and bass; better than i expected.
I love it (maybe because it’s my first bluetooth speaker). However, i will be honest and say i was disappointed by the bass when i tested it the first time (albeit with a song that has deep bass). It can’t reach the lower bass tones and so doesn’t have the richness and ‘boom’. That said, it’s still ok and does have bass, just not considerable. Also, the waterproof feature is good, no problems there. One annoyance is that it cannot be used when making or taking calls, not even as an output. It just cuts out completely, which was rather disappointing when i first discovered it. All in all, it’s a decent speaker, lacking in a couple of personal points of preference.
Great sound particularly when put into stereo, easy to chuck in a bag and take away and charge holds really well. Customer service were really helpful when i was having difficulty pairing, but was my mistake as i was pressing the wrong set of buttons.
I’ve had this device since for 10 months now and overall i’m really impressed with their battery life and the durability of them. Admittedly the sound quality isn’t those of a higher end speaker (i. Bose/sonnos) but there’s honestly nothing wrong with it for someone after a robust speaker to take to the beach or have in the shower. My only disliking is the control of sound isn’t amazing but this shouldn’t put you off.
Big sound, the portable bluetooth speaker with surprisingly big sound, hear music like never before with sound that is clear, crisp and full of big, elegant bass
Amazing, ive used a bunch of speakers, these are by far some of the best pair you can have, i wish they would support stereo sound, but even in mono, have each one in opposite corners and it will fill up your area with sound. Can get extremely loud, for the size its amazing.
I’m a bit of a music junky and like a full ‘traditional’ sound – so i hate tiney speakrs that sound tinny. I have two and can pair them so i can have in kitchen and garden. Battery life is brillian – had them both on all day at the weekend, and still had battery for the next day. Can’t fault these at all for the price.
The relatively small package, certainly belies its punch; the sound from this unit is very impressive providing a very decent bass without neglecting vocals (and even more impressive given both the size and relative low cost). While i haven’t tested the promises surrounding its waterproof capability (), its a sturdy little speaker and superb for taking on the move and using outdoors. A particularly notable quality is the speaker’s ability to maintain its bluetooth connectivity despite being some distance from the unit. I find this very handy indeed. After using a whole variety of wired and bluetooth alternatives, unreservedly so. After two months of use, the only negative i can think of – and its a tenuous one at that – is that’s appearance is a little ‘knights templar’ and i wish they’d designed the volume buttons a little differently. Still, this is a very minor gripe, certainly doesn’t affect performance and in every other respect, the speaker is well worth the money.
I use this paired to my laptop. Easy to pair with my chromebook and my windows laptop. Not so easy to pair with debian desktop; but that is not ue’s fault. Could do with more instructions. (why is the ‘reduce volume’ minus sign vertical. Make it look a it like a urn for someone’s ashes).
I was worried that it would under perform in terms of bass and volume. It’s more than up to the job. Easily loud enough for a hotel room; also used it in the garden at a bbq and it was fine for that too. Very easy to connect to, charge and use. All in all a cracking little speaker. It’s no sonos play 1, but as a temporary/portable unit it’s ideal. Would have been even more pleased if it came in a protective case, or even a little bag but for this money you can’t really go wrong.
Bought this speaker to go on holiday and because it was waterproof. Definitely waterproof as i threw it in the pool to test and it passed. Although struggled to listen to it underwater :p. Sound quality is good considering the size and it gets to a decent volume. The fact that you can double up speakers is a nice touch. I think the bigger speakers will have better sound but obviously there’s added size and expense. Charging via usb is handy and convenient. Battery life is pretty good seems a good 6 hours at leastoverall a nice speaker and good value.
10 hours of happiness be there all day, all-night; the WONDERBOOM wireless speaker gives you 10 hours of non-stop musical ecstasy, 10 hours of entertainment with immersive sound
First off, this feels like a solidly built product. It is quite weighty, so i would not want to carry it around with me, but it feels built to last. The control buttons weren’t intuitive to me at first, so i needed a quick google in order to set it up. However once i realised how they worked it was simple after that. The product pairs easily with my phone and the range seems good. Sound quality is excellent with rich bass and the volume is good.
Bought this speaker as girf and it’s not the first one i get from the ue product. I got a boom2 for myself and bought a roll 2 for one of my friends. All of the ue speakers are great quality ones; their sound is really really good and they are super resistant. I would suggest this products to everyone who want to enjoy music everywhere.
By far the best speaker i’ve ever used, and for a very decent price. Top quality sound and appearance, would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient yet surprisingly loud and high quality speaker. The fabric texture is very unique and feels good to touch.
I’ve bought bluetooth speakers before and always gone for small portable units and the sound quality and battery life seem to have always reflected the sizethis wonderboom is in a different league. I have no idea how they get so much rich deep reverberant and (if you want) loud sound from such a small unit. I love the design, the small size and the battery life. I love the fact that you can have more than one device registered to the bluetooth connection, so either i or my partner can just start playing music without having to change anything. I haven’t tested the waterproofing or shock proofing but both specs would indicate this is an ideal speaker to take with you outdoors or in the wet. My only negatives would be that it’s not quite so good at very low volumes (eg background music whilst reading)well worth the price.
Really great speaker which has been properly tested in the swimming pool. Provides great sound and volume for the size. Bought for teenage kids who are very happy with the purchase.
Wow, this speaker is really amazing. The battery life is excellent. The quality of the music is outstanding for the size of the speaker. It has a deep bass and clear tops. It’s very durable and easy to wipe clean if used outside and gets dirty. It is waterproof tested it in the bath speaker continued to play. Wiped it dry again on speaker played perfectly again. Would definitely recommend in fact i have been. Order it you won’t be disappointed.
Very pleased with this set of 2 speakers which i bought on amazon’s deal of the day for a bargain £79. My only criticism is that they are a little too much on high end (treble), but otherwise they deliver a very decent sound with clear vocals and decent bass. Pairing both was straight forward, but if you struggle there are several instructional videos on you tube. Even at their rrp, these are a good buy and don’t disappoint.
The ideal outdoor speaker for showers, pools, beaches, muddy fields and rainy days since it is completely waterproof and it can float and if it gets dirty, just rinse it off. Frequency range: 80 Hz –
The audio is crisp and very clear. However, in the packaging the instructions weren’t very clear and they were very limited. Also, when i try to press the button on top to change the song, it may take me more than one press. Other than that, it is an amazing device and i recommend it to everyone. I’ve used it for a month now and, in comparison to other speaker, it is without a doubt the dominant one.
Bought for 70 gbp in feb 2018 – its a good speaker but i wouldn’t buy it again for the money. It is bigger than i thought from the pictures and i was really looking for a smaller size. Sound quality is okay for a compact speaker, turns off automatically to save battery which is good but does it with quite an obtrusive sound effect which is a shame. If you know this is what you want then im sure it will be good.
Amazing sound, especially given its size. With a way to plug in a lead as well as bluetooth it would be 5 stars – but if that’s not important to you, consider it 5.
Bought as a present so limited checking of product. Sound is good and clear with decent volume – i always wonder why ue don’t publish speaker output wattages. Product seems robust and operation and pairing was easy.
Bought this on recommendation of my son and daughter-in-law for a garden barbecue. Small and portable, the sound quality is incredible – deep basses and clear tones – and remains connected to bluetooth several metres away from my ipad.
Brilliant sound from a relatively compact speaker. It connects really easily to iphone. Be aware that it can only connect to other wonderboom speakers and nothing else from the ultimate ears range – this is a limitation and why it only gets 4 stars.
Double the speakers, double the fun if you think one WONDERBOOM wireless bluetooth speaker sounds great, you will love how they sound paired together grab a friend, connect and get loud
The sound is great from whatever angle. We tend to use phones for music now and connection to this speaker is simple and quick. Sound quality is good and perfect for background music for small gatherings.
I was well pleased with the sound of this. I think the sound is very good. My only negative is that because i use it for sleepsounds/music when falling asleep the lowest volume is still a bit too loud. Also the on/off sound it makes is stupidly loud and when the music has stopped and the speaker eventually turn itself off it wakes me up quite violently. However for daytime listening whilst getting ready and putting makeup on, as well as listening in the bath, it is really great.
Sound quality = 5/5battery life = 5/5durability = 5/5 (dropped a few times)tempted to buy another one so i can pair them.
The 360-degrees sound is amazing, the clarity is astounding, and the build quality is unrivalled. Mine legit got punched off a table and landed on a hard floor on the first day of me having it, and there wasn’t a scratch. It feels sturdy and solid, definitely like something worth the price tag. The tactile feel of the buttons has improved a little, especially on the top of the device, but the volume buttons do need a little extra force to be pressed (and right in the centre too). The volume of the device is pretty loud. Even in parties or pre-drinks i never really set it above half volume, or it gets too loud. However, the sound can distort at the highest volume levels, *although*, this may just be a software or external hardware issue due to drivers or the media being played itself. I myself did not notice it at all until i was watching a movie with it.
One of the best products i have ever purchased. This speaker performs incredibly at any volume with brilliant bass, mid-range and treble. It floats without fail and although the sound quality is compromised it is to be expected. This speaker is great for sailing as it can be attached to a cleat/carabiner in the boat and you need not fear for your speaker when you capsize or gybe, it is also great for rowing. The sound quality as previously stated is incredible and the speaker can go loud enough to cater for any regular environment. Easy to connect to with bluetooth but unfortunately no aux jack is present in the speaker so some older mp3 players/ipods may not be compatible. The charger works well – not especially fast but sufficient to charge the speaker to 100% in less than 2 hours (for me 1. The fabric covering is prone to stains but otherwise is appealing. The buttons are not particularly tactile but when pressed function – just do not expect a click.
The best portable speaker i’ve ever owned. It’s not cheap, but it sounds amazing. Deep clear bass and genuine encompassing sound field. It’s plenty loud enough for most occasions. It’s not that small, or light so it’s possibly not suited for all travelling needs, but it’s built in hanging loop would allow it to easily be clipped onto a rucksack. Only downside is it’s bluetooth only, there is no aux input for connecting non bluetooth devices. Not sure why they didn’t add that.
I tested this against the anker soundcore motion q – similar size and power, but £20 cheaper than the wonderboom. I tested them side by side to get a true comparison. The result: the wonderboom lives up to its name. Deeper bass, brighter treble, more presence, detail and sparkle. By comparison, the motion q was flatter and a bit muddier. Just not as lively and without the bass depth of the wonderboom. In this case, you get what you pay for. But if you’re willing to pay a little extra for the wonderboom, you get the jump in performance. It won’t shake your fillings out, but for its size (slightly stubbier than a can of soup) the bass has plenty of oomph.
Looked around for a while on what to buy, settled on this and it genuinely blew me away. I don’t have a real comparison to make, but i was really impressed at how full the sound was out of one speaker unit. The volume fills a room, the styling is great and it connects to a single phone really well. (avoid trying two phones, its gets messy).
I bought this pair during an amazon lightning deal, and so was a great price. The speakers sound nice, and are well made. The only reason they get 4 stars and not 5, is because they don’t play in stereo when you connect the pair together.
Excellent sound for holiday tunes. A bit heavier than expected but not an issue for me. Sound was excellent and extremely easy to connect to my bluetooth devices.
We wanted something to carry around and play music in different rooms. This was quite cheap and had good reviews but i didn’t expect much for the price. The sound quality is not impeccable but then would you expect it to be for this price?. You can get immersed in the audiophile websites and end up convincing yourself that you need to spend just another hundred to get the sound you need but in the real world this is perfectly good enough for most of us most of the time. Startlingly good quality and value.
5 stars as the bluetooth connection dropped a few times, connecting to the yaufey projector. Its certainly possible that its all the projector’s fault, and seems fine after the first couple of disconnects. Sound quality for a speaker of this size is excellent, and the dimensions are perfect for travel.
It’s brilliant and a revelation to me i can take it round the garden or anywhere and it sounds great. A friend that we went on holiday with had one and we were so impressed we ordered one as soon as we got home. It’s waterproofness was tested when we had a leak through the kitchen ceiling and it was still playing whilst being drenched.
