Ultimate Ears 984-000856 WONDERBOOM tooth Speaker Waterproof – Great machine but fuller instructions would be a good idea

Good but there’s a lot of problem with the bluetooth connection. When you’re connecting two phones they cut each other out sometimes and you can’t play one song from one phone then another song from another phone, it’s a real shame. The positive side is that the surround audio is really good and gives a good bass throughout the room, especially when linked up. One of them stopped working after a few months of use.

Considering the size of this small device, it certainly kicks out some serious sound.

I never thought such good sound could emanate from something so small and cute. It’s easy to setup and use. I love music but don’t have the room for a massive speaker set up. I can take my wonderboom anywhere and enhance the sound from any of my bluetooth enabled devices. Be it to listen to music or watch a film. Considering the top range of this is only 3db different to the much larger megaboom. I couldn’t recommend it enough. Here are the specifications for the Ultimate Ears 984-000856 WONDERBOOM tooth Speaker Waterproof:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.

  • PLEASE NOTE : Ultimate Ears branding on product may appear as ‘UE’ in some imagery of the product manual’ also they have changed the logo being Ultimate Ears to UE

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.

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.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Build quality amazing, sound quality better.
  • Great machine but fuller instructions would be a good idea
  • Boom! Shake The (Small) Room.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

I can carry it about with me around the house so long as i can still talk to alexa and i have a radio, timer, alarm and information with me with just this speaker.

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 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.

Purchased this as a replacement for my son’s expired speaker. He was seriously impressed with the sound and volume it puts out. Haven’t tested the water resistance yet, but so far it looks rugged.

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.

Quite simply mind blowingly good. The all round package of portability, sound quality, battery life, looks and best of all it floatsstaggeringly good.

Bought as present for my daughter but have listened to quality which is good.

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.

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.

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.

    • Simply the best small waterproof speaker you can buy, still- rugged, durable build quality (drop-test proof from 5 m)- full waterproofing to 1 m (ipx 7)- insanely loud (a single wonderboom can fill a medium sized room)- punchy bass- incedible connection (200 ft, despite the quoted 100 ft from ue)- great 10 h battery- focus on low end – sound is a little muddy and emphasis on low frequencies can overpower mids (reduces clarity in vocals)- volume buttons hard to press- no microphone for phone calls (no issue for me, who uses this, really?)for using by the pool, lake, at a festival, this speaker is simply the best in the business.

    For its size, the sound is impressive. As simple to connect as bluetooth gets. Bass is reasonable but don’t expect the ground to shake.

    • 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).

    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 was a little surprised how small it was, despite that it is a great sound. It is not something i would chose if i wanted a speaker for a permanent position as it is obviously intended as a portable unit and ideal for moving around the house or travel.
