Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth Pairing

This post details general Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth pairing directions, to get your speaker playing from your phone, tablet, or other BT source device. First off, for new speakers, unpack them and make sure they have some charge in their batteries.  Then, with your speaker switched OFF (all dark top panel LEDs), follow these steps to pair with most any wireless source device.  Thus in this demo, we show how this pairing works on an iPad Air 3 tablet. But a like routine works for iPhones, iPods, and Android phones and tablets too.





Ultimate Eare Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth Pairing, Step by Step

1. Unpack and Charge the Speaker

Once you unpack and charge the speaker for the first time, start off with the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 OFF.

2. Next, Visit the Home Screen on your Bluetooth Device

Then press the Home button to get to the  Home  page.  See our  Home  screen as we see next on our iPad.

3. Find the iPad  Settings  App

We found ours on the second page of the  Home  screen on our tablet.

4. Bring up the Settings App

Tap the Settings app icon.

The iPad Air 3 then shows the first page of its  Settings  screen, as we see in the next screenshot

5. Go to the  Bluetooth Settings  Page to Continue with Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 Pairing

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 we switched ON our Bluetooth on this tablet. But since the 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 info. Thus, it would not appear in the Other Devices  list either.

This situation looks something like as shown next.

Note in this picture that no Wonderboom 2 appears just yet.





6. Turn On your Speaker

Turn on the speaker by quickly pressing its  Power  button.

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

The speaker then comes on, letting you know this by making a startup sound.

7. Put your Speaker into Bluetooth Pairing Mode

Now, to see your Ultimate Ears 2 on your iPad Air, place it into BT pairing mode. For that, press and release the Bluetooth button on the top, near the hang strap on the speaker, as we see in the next picture.

When you press this Pairing button, the speaker makes an offbeat but cool pairing sound. Plus, a lamp in this button starts fast-flashing white. See this in the last picture above.

8. Find your Speaker on the Tablet

See the picture next. We found ours, as pointed at by the yellow arrow in the next picture.

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

Your iPad Air then pairs with this BT speaker (appears as “WONDERBOOM 2” in this scenario).

The  Bluetooth Settings  screen then changes to display something like the following.

Note that the speaker now shows as paired, as pointed at by the yellow arrows in the last picture.





10. Done with Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth Pairing !

We have now successfully paired this speaker to an iPad Air 3 tablet.  Audio output from that tablet now plays on this speaker, which is what you want. Bluetooth set up like this works with most other BT source devices as well.
