This post shows how to connect Wonderboom speakers with common Bluetooth devices. First, start with your Wonderboom shut OFF (all dark LEDs). Then, follow along to pair it with most any source device. In this demo, we show how pairing works on our iPad Air mobile computer. But like procedures work for iPhones, iPods, and Android phones and tablets as well.
How to Connect Wonderboom Speakers, Step by Step
1. Visit the Home Screen on your Source Device
Press the Home button to get to the Home iPad page. See our Home screen as shown next.
2. Find the iPad Settings App
We found ours on the second page of the Home screen on our tablet.
3. Bring up the Settings App
Then, tap the Settings app icon.
The iPad Air displays the first page of its Settings screen, as shown in the next screenshot
4. Go to the Bluetooth Settings Page to Continue with How to Connect Wonderboom Speakers
Next, tap the Bluetooth item, as we point at with the dark green arrow in the last screenshot above.
Our Bluetooth Settings screen then appears as follows. Note that our Bluetooth is switched ON here. But since the Wonderboom is currently OFF, it does not show in either the My Devices or Other Devices lists on the tablet yet, Why? Because we’ve not yet paired it with this iPad before. Plus, the speaker is not yet transmitting its BT connection info. See this scenario, that appears as shown next.
Note in this picture that there’s no Wonderboom listed yet.
5. Turn On the Speakers
Then, turn on the WB by quickly pressing its Power button. See this button, circled in green, in the next picture.
The speaker then boots.
6. Put your Wonderboom Speakers Into Discovery Mode
Now, to see these speakers on your iPad Air, place them into BT pairing mode. For that, press and release the Bluetooth button, as circled in the next picture.
When you press this Pairing button, the speaker makes a distinctive sound several times. Plus, a lamp in this button starts rapidly flashing white. See this in the last picture above.
7. Find your Wonderboom Speakers on your Source Device
See the picture next. We found ours, as circled in green.
8. Connect with your Wonderboom Speakers
Tap the listed speaker in the Other Devices section of the Bluetooth Devices list, shown above.
Your iPad Air then pairs with the Wonderboom (appears as “WONDERBOOM” in this demo).
The Bluetooth Settings screen then changes to display something like the following.
Note that Wonderboom speakers at this point now appear as connected, as circled inside the green oval in the last picture.
9. Done with How to Connect Wonderboom Speakers !
Finally, we have now successfully paired common Wonderboom Bluetooth speakers with our iPad Air iOS device. Audio output from that source device now plays on this unit, which is what you want. The same happens with most other Bluetooth devices.
