How to Sync Wonderboom Speakers

This post shows how to sync Wonderboom speakers with common Bluetooth devices. The process works for all Wonderboom models, including the 1 and 2.

Now first, you start with all models of Wonderboom speakers shut OFF (all dark LEDs). Then, follow along to sync them with most any Bluetooth source device.  In this demo, we show how syncing works on our iPad Air mobile computer. But like procedures work for iPhones, iPods, and Android phones and tablets as well.





How to Sync Wonderboom Speakers, Step by Step

1. Visit the Home Screen on your Source BT Device

Press the Home button or swipe up from the bottom of the screen to get to the  Home   page.  E.g. See our  Home  screen as shown next.

2. Find the  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 device then 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 Sync Wonderboom Speakers

Next, tap the  Bluetooth  item, as pointed at by 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 synced it with this Bluetooth device before.  Plus, the speaker is not yet transmitting its BT connection info.

E.g. See this scenario, that appears as shown next.

Note in this picture that there’s no Wonderboom listed yet.





5. Power Up your Wonderboom Speaker

Then, switch on the WB by quickly pressing its  Power  button. See this button, circled in green, in the next picture.

When you press this Syncing / 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.

8. Next, Sync with your Wonderboom Speakers

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

Your iPad Air then syncs 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 then appears as connected, as we circle inside the green oval in the last picture.





9. Done with How to Sync Wonderboom Speakers !

Finally, we have now successfully paired our Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker with our iPad source device.  Thus, audio output from that device now plays on this wireless  speaker, which is what you want.  The same happens with most other Bluetooth devices.
