Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth Pairing Instructions

This post offers general Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth pairing instructions, to get your speaker playing from your phone, tablet, or other BT source device. First, of course, for new speakers, unpack them and make sure that they have some charge in their batteries.  Then, with your speaker turned 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.





Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth Pairing Instructions, Step by Step

1. Unpack and Charge the Speaker

For detailed charging instructions, see our Wonderboom 2 Charging Recharging Instructions  post.

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 shown next on our iPad.

3. Find the iPad  Settings  App

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

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

5. Go to the  Bluetooth Settings  Page to Continue with 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. This looks something like as shown next.

See this button, pointed at by yellow arrow, 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.

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

Your iPad Air then pairs with the Bluetooth speaker (appears as “WONDERBOOM 2” in this demo).

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

10. Done with Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth Pairing Instructions !

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