  • Small size but big sound output, great for travel
    Reviewed by ReviewedByPhil - July 8, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Wonderboom 2 is surprisingly small, about the size of a softball, and probably one of the smallest speakers that I own, but is also quite dense, weighing just under 1 pound. However, the sound it outputs is full and well-balanced with a decent amount of bass, and the volume can be turned up quite loud, more than enough to fill a small to medium sized room and for use outdoors. That being said, when paired with my phone, pushing the speaker to the max volume results in a bit of distortion, particularly in the upper ranges where cymbal crashes and female vocals can start to clash and sound a bit muddy. But even with the volume backed down a couple steps, the speaker is still plenty loud, and I really like how clearly voices and individual instrumentation are reproduced in general. With the speaker being a single-point source, it’s no surprise that left and right track separation is difficult to distinguish if not absent completely, but that can be resolved by pairing a second Wonderboom 2 speaker for true stereo output using its “Double Up” feature, which can be activated via a simple button press and doesn’t require a mobile app. I have to disagree somewhat that the speaker has full 360-degree projection though, because the sound isn’t exactly uniform depending where it’s facing. There’s definitely a difference listening from each “side” but thankfully, no clear dead zones; so even though you might hear a little more treble or bass from one angle to another, you can still enjoy the music no matter where you’re oriented in relation to the speaker. There’s a small pine tree shaped symbol on the button on the bottom for “outdoor mode” which boosts the levels, so the bass can travel farther in outdoor settings, but in my opinion throws off the balance and manages to make it sound “boxy” up close, though this is less noticeable from a distance. Even so I much prefer this setting off, and I think it sounds just fine outdoors without it. The speaker is pretty minimalist in terms of design and outside of the power button, Bluetooth pairing button, center button for playback control and button for outdoor mode, the only other functions you’ll find are the large plus and minus on the front for volume adjustments. The center button can play/pause a track, skip to the next track, or activate Double Up mode. As a travel speaker its compact form and lightness make it easy to pack. It also has a small rubber loop for hanging to a backpack or belt loop with a carabiner (not included). The best feature though is that the speaker is fully waterproof and floats in water with an IP67 rating. I tested this out in a swimming pool and it surely does float (though it doesn’t sound great while floating). It certainly isn’t afraid of getting wet! This means you can feel secure about using it by the pool, at the beach, or even in the shower/bath. The rubber and fabric wrapped exterior is also fairly durable making it rugged enough to survive an accidental fall to the ground, and it dries surprisingly quickly. A bit disappointing though, is that at its price point, it doesn’t have some more advanced features like built-in smart assistant support (e.g. Alexa/Google), NFC pairing, or even wireless charging for that matter. You’ll still need to open a rubber door to access the microUSB port for charging and make sure that door is fully closed before it makes contact with water, making this a potential failure point in terms of its water resistance. Interestingly, the speaker is able to pair with two mobile devices simultaneously, and is able to switch between the two, allowing two DJs the opportunity to share and take turns playing music. It also automatically shuts off after 15 minutes of inactivity, to save battery, though I found that a full charge is more than capable of lasting a full 12 hours at a moderate volume level. Overall, though, I think it’s a solid Bluetooth speaker with excellent sound performance, durability, and design.

  • Great
    Verified BuyerReviewed by StarSlayer - July 31, 2020

    Speaker is doing great, actually should get a case for it cuz it's got a little dirty. I plug it in overnight if you wait until the light turns off that way it's fully charged and you don't have it a high-volume it will last you the recommended 12 hours

  • Powerful little speaker
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MemphisGuy - April 17, 2021

    Love this little speaker. It's got great sound, is very compact, and stylish. I had a previous Ultimate Ears product and loved it, so when I needed another bluetooth speaker, I knew I'd buy another. Also, it is so simple to connect to... I pulled it out of the box, turned it on, and it instantly paired with my phone. Great technology. Can't wait to use it more. I may even buy another one for the shower.

  • 360 degree sound
    Reviewed by Zaid - June 15, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Now EU comes with higher specs from its predecessor. 13 playtime on a single charge. I got a chance to use it intermittently for 2 days and still have charge. Quality of sound where my area of focus has exceeded my expectations. Super clear and bass much noticeable. I took it with to work and class was excited when I have connected 2 devices simultaneously to, but am limited to stream from one device at a time. Protection rate is IP67 means it is water-proof and dust-proof. I am just amazed how clear sound it produces and the premium quality of the materials. Nice looking the fabric is Very Neat!
