2. Wait for the Power Up Sound

The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom makes a unique sounding turn-on noise. The UE is then ready for reset when this sound finishes.  It may or may not pair with a device.  That depends on whether you have any in-range Bluetooth devices that know about this Ultimate Ears speaker and that it have previously paired with as well.  Whether paired or not, reset works the same way, as follows.

3. Be Sure the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom is Not Paired

Ultimate Ears speakers do not reply to reset requests while connected with a source Bluetooth device. So, unpair the Wonderboom before resetting.

4. Press the  Power  and the   Volume DOWN  Button Together for Up to Eight Seconds

Find the  Power  and Volume DOWN   buttons.  The   Power button is on the top of this speaker, near the front.  Volume DOWN   is the long vertical line on the front, near the bottom.  See these both pointed out by the green arrows in the next picture.

5. Check that your Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Did Indeed Reset

Next, power on the speaker again, as detailed in step 1 above.

After a reset, Ultimate Ears comes up in ready-to-pair mode again, with the pairing lamp rapidly flashing white.

6. Done with How to Reset Ultimate Ears Wonderboom !

Reset is done now. So go ahead and let someone else use the speaker. Or pair it once more with your favorite Bluetooth devices.

After a reset, the Wonderboom no longer auto connects with any prior paired Bluetooth devices. Thus, to set up automatic BT pairing, you pair by hand the Ultimate Ears with your desired device(s). Then any time that both the speaker and device have Bluetooth turned on, pairing again occurs without you having to do anything.

Don’t forget to delete any now-stale connections to the Wonderboom from your source Bluetooth devices that you set up prior to hard resetting the speaker.  These will no longer work.  So you’ll want to “forget” them in your source device’s settings pages.
