I found it unreliable.....
Worked well for a year always in the one location and then audio stuttering became a persistent problem even on full charge. I checked and tried everything I could think of but the problem remains. Its now effectively unusable.
I might have expected this kind of deterioration after maybe a few years use as parts age but after only a year and not even with heavy use, to my mind its simply unacceptable.
Wont buy this brand again and I do not personally recommend.

Great Little Speaker for the Price!
There is such competition in this segment of portable speakers its often hard top now where to start! Fortunately this speaker punches well above its weight in all aspects you would expect namely, Sound quality, ease of use, connectivity and importantly loudness! Its connects seamlessly to your bluetooth devise (you can connect 2 devises at the same time). Its small and convenient and you can also connect 2 UE wonder booms for it to become a stereo pair of speakers! It also has a useful clip to attach to things like your belt, backpack or bike! It pretty much ticks all the boxes as its also shock and water proof! You won't regret purchasing this speaker if you're in OR AROUND the $100 price range!

Tech savvy features, turns off automatically if not used for a predetermined period, and reconnects back to bluetooth instantly on phone, tablet or PC. When you have learnt the bluetooth connection process in between devices that have been previously paired, it is 100 percent reliable every time, so this process must be learnt by trial. Sound quality will impress and repetitively surprise you sufficiently to justify the price of the purchase. Easily transportable and very respectable as a soundstage for all movies. Solid product.

Ticks all the boxes
I've only had it for a few days (Nov. '19) but it is great. Small, light weight but gives great sound. I got a Wonderboom 2 for $129 at Myers - I was told that the original Wonderboom is no longer available.
I am going overseas soon and this thing is perfect. The only downside is not the speaker itself, but the so-called manual - next to useless. Go online and view the very good youtube videos by Max Dalton - brief but very informative.

Best Bluetooth Speaker
I bought my UE Wonderboom in December 2017 at the airport before I went on holiday, so it is going on to 2 years now that I’ve owned it. It still performs the same as the day I bought it. Same battery life, same sound quality... everything. And this is despite being taken to a construction site 6 days a week. It has been dropped from heights of 2-4 metres more than 8 times. It’s been submerged in water, kicked (not on purpose) And it is still here y’all. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made.
Purchased at JB Hi-Fi.
Fantastic for its time!
Great sound quality.
Simple operation, can skip songs using a speaker button.
Easy to sync and connect to.
Was a competitive price when I got one a coupla years ago, I'm very happy with mine.

Reasonable small speaker
Purchased solely for webcast group viewing from laptop.
It does the job well, crisp vocal listening which is what prompted purchase and battery life is good.
Very portable and compact little speaker.
Purchased in May 2019 at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $99.00.
I bought this to use in one of my older cars that doesn’t have Bluetooth or an aux port. I enjoy listening to music from my phone rather than the radio but my phone isn’t loud enough on its own so I went looking for a portable speaker that didn’t need batteries.
The sound is great for such a small device. I don’t need to go max volume or anything to have a good clean sound.
The most frustrating thing is the Bluetooth connection. Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by the way Apple’s airpods instantly connect EVERY TIME I use them yet this thing is ve...ry hit and miss. Half the time upon turning the speaker on, my phone will connect instantly, some times I’ll be required to go into phone settings and choose it from the Bluetooth menu (super annoying and a waste of time) but occasionally even then I will get an error ‘make sure the device is in range and turned on’ when I’m literally right next to it! Then I try again, usually it’ll connect then, but occasionally I’ll be forced to use the devices pairing button to get it connected again which doesn’t make any sense to me because I can see it’s still there in my Bluetooth memory along with only my watch and airpods. I’ve tried to work out what may be causing the intermittent connection problems, have I connected to something else recently? Is the battery low? But I can’t find any common, replicatable situations that cause the device not to connect to my phone as soon as I turn it on. Aside from that, which is quite an annoying issue, it’s otherwise a great device.

Small speaker that packs a punch
Bought in a sale and never regretted. It's very portable since it's small and not bulky at all. Fully recommend it for its price to value. Sound quality is good too. Perhaps the volume could be louder.

- UE Wonderboom Subzero Blue
Love the 360 sound. Loud and crisp. Connect easily to my mobile and instant link when you turn on the speakers. Bought some other bluetooth speakers before and so far very happy with it. Batteries last too. Only wish it came Google assistant, then it's perfect...

Great little speaker
Amazing for the money! Insanley loud and great bass for a speaker of this size. Only problem is there is no designated app for this model. Battery life is fantastic. Outlasts my phone on a charge and it charges pretty quick. The Bluetooth range is amazing. I tested it to about 55 meters. I recommend buying one.
- UE Wonderboom Fireball Red
Love it! Easy portable and great sound!
I love my wonderboom, the clarity is amazing for such a small device. Easily portable and simple to use. They come in several cool colours. Even turned up loud it is so clear.
I love being able to take this camping, rechargeable and great battery life. I'm considering buying another!
- UE Wonderboom Lilac
Great portable speaker that really kicks a punch!
Very great product overall and easy to use + portable. Surprisingly quite a loud sound and of very good quality for such a small speaker. Aesthetically pleasing and feels solid too.
Only drawback is that it is expensive and there is no auxiliary input which is a little disappointing but otherwise definitely a wonderful product!
Great portable speaker, look very suitable to a modern setting
The UE Wonderboom is AMAZING! We got the cashmere pink and it suits our modern home perfectly. The speaker is very easy to use, and links perfectly with your smartphone. The volume buttons are reliable and the battery life is very long-lasting. The quality of the sound is near-perfect, the only thing is that when at the higher settings the sound becomes a bit robotic, but you would never need that volume anyway, so not really a problem. I would highly recommend, and am even considering a second one for myself, as the devices can be paired.
