How to Put UE Wonderboom in Pairing Mode

To link the UE Wonderboom speaker with a Bluetooth source device for the first time, or to reset the connection information on that device, you must know how to do this on the speaker.  You need this skill because in this mode, this speaker calls out its Bluetooth name and current linkage data on the BT airwaves.  So in this post, we show you how to put the UE Wonderboom in pairing mode, so you can connect it to phones, tablets, computers, and smart speakers.





How to Put the UE Wonderboom in Pairing Mode

1. Turn On the Speaker

First, turn on the speaker by pressing its  Power  button once.

See this button, pointed out by the yellow arrow in the next picture.

The speaker then powers ON. Further, the lamp on the top panel glows steady white, depending on speaker’s current battery charge state. This light may blink red if your battery is close to dead.  But for this exercise, we assume a full battery.

Yet whether the speaker is paired or not, you can start pairing mode as follows.

2. Press the Pairing Mode Button and Release when the Pairing Lamp Starts Quickly Flashing

Now, to be able to find your speaker on your source Bluetooth device, place it into pairing mode. For that, press and release the the Pairing button, as circled in the next picture.
