How to Connect to Wonderboom Bluetooth Speaker

This post shows how to connect to a Wonderboom BT speaker from typical Bluetooth enabled devices like Android phones and tablets, and Apple iPods, iPads, and iPhones. Start with your speaker powered OFF (all dark LEDs). Then, follow along to connect to it.  In this demonstration, we show how this connect works on an iPad Air tablet.





How to Connect to a Wonderboom Speaker, Step by Step

1. Visit the Home Screen on your Source Bluetooth Device

Press the Home button to get to the  Home   screen.  See our  Home  page as shown next.

2. Find the   Settings   App

We found ours on the second page of the  Home  screen. Most any mobile device these days has some sort of Settings app.  If yours does not, then follow the instructions in its manual for connecting to a Bluetooth speaker.

3. Bring up the Settings App

Tap the Settings app icon.

The mobile device then displays the first page of its  Settings  screen.  The page we got on ours is shown in the next screenshot

4. Go to the  Bluetooth Settings  Page to Continue with How to Connect to Wonderboom

Tap the  Bluetooth  item, as pointed at by the deep green arrow in the last screenshot above.

Our  Bluetooth Settings screen then comes up as displayed next. Note that our Bluetooth is switched ON here. But since the Wonderboom is currently OFF. So it does not show in either the  My Devices  or  Other Devices lists on the tablet yet,  Why?  Because we’ve not yet connected to it from this device before.  Plus, the Wonderboom is not yet transmitting its Bluetooth connection info. See this situation, as shown next.

5. Power On your Wonderboom 

Turn on the Wonderboom by rapidly pressing and releasing its  Power  button. See this button, circled in green, in the next picture.

When you press this Pairing button, the speaker makes a distinctive sound a few times. Plus, a light in this button starts quickly blinking white. See this in the last picture above.

See the picture next. We found ours, as circled in green.

Tap the listed speaker in the  Other Devices  section of the  Bluetooth Devices  list, shown above.

The  Bluetooth Settings  screen then changes to show something like the following.

9. Done with How to Connect to Wonderboom !
