This post offers general UE Speaker pairing directions. First, start with your UE speaker shut OFF (all dark LEDs). Then, follow these instructions for pairing it with most any Bluetooth source device. In this demo, we show how this works on our iPad Air tablet, using the UE Wonderboom model speaker. But a like procedure works for iPhones, iPods, and Android phones and tablets too, as well as most other UE speaker models.
UE Speaker Pairing Instructions, Step by Step
1. Visit the Home Screen on your Mobile Device
Press the Home button to get to the Home page. E,g, See our Home screen as shown next.
2. Next, 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 tablet then puts up the first page of its Settings screen, as shown in the next screenshot
4. Go to the Bluetooth Settings Page
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 this UE speaker is currently OFF, it does not show in either the My Devices or Other Devices lists on the tablet yet, Why? Because we’ve never paired it with this iPad before. Plus, the speaker is not yet broadcasting its BT connection information. See this situation, that looks something like as shown next.
Note in this picture that there’s no Wonderboom listed yet.
5. Turn On your UE Speaker
Turn on this UE by quickly pressing its Power button. See this button, circled in green, in the next picture.
The speaker then comes on.
6. Put your Speaker into Pairing Mode
Now, to see your UE speaker on your iPad Air, place it 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 UE Speaker on your iPad Air
See the picture next. We found ours, as circled in green.
8. Pair with your UE Speaker
Tap the listed speaker in the Other Devices section of the Bluetooth Devices list, shown above.
Your iPad Air then pairs with the speaker. E.g. in this test, it appears as “WONDERBOOM”.
The Bluetooth Settings screen then changes to display something like the following.
Note that the Ultimate Ears speaker now shows as paired, as circled inside the green oval in the last picture.
9. UE Speaker Pairing Done!
Lastly, we have now successfully paired our UE Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker with our iPad Air iOS device. Audio output from that iPad now plays on this wireless UE speaker, which is what you want.
