How to Pair Wonderboom Speakers

This post shows how to pair 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 Pair 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 Pair 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 your Wonderboom 

Then, turn on the WB by quickly pressing 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 several times. Plus, a lamp in this button starts rapidly flashing white. See this in the last picture above.

7. Find your Wonderboom on your Source Device

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

8. Pair 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.

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.
