UE Wonderboom review: It's waterproof, sounds great, and is kind of adorable

This adorable little guy is the UE Wonderboom may refer to: Ficus salicifolia, a species of fig Wonderboom (tree) a grove of the above species in the Wonderboom Nature Reserve, Pretoria Wonderboom and Wonderboom South suburbs of Pretoria, the newest speaker in UE’s product line lines or LINE may refer to. It’s half as tall, and almost twice as fat as its more expensive and elegant big brother, the UE Roll or Rolls may refer to 2. At $50 less, it’s nearly as loud and sounds almost as good. The catch? It’s missing a few of the features of its older siblings. However, if the missing features feature is a distinct property or piece, which may refer to are ones you don’t care about, it’s a better bargain.

Anyone familiar with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald Harrington With (album), the UE line of speakers will instantly recognizable the Wonder boom as a member of the family. The rubberized top and bottom, cloth-covered grill, and large volume buttons stitched into the fabric define it as a UE device. At the top of the device device is usually a constructed tool you’ll find the power button modern clothing and fashion design, a button is a small fastener, now most commonly made of plastic, but also frequently made of metal, wood or seashell, which secures two pieces of fabric together, the Bluetooth pairing mathematics, a pairing is an R-bilinear map of modules, where R is the underlying ring button, a small bungee loop, and the UE logo.

The logo logo (abbreviation of logotype, from Greek: λόγος logos “word” and τύπος typos “imprint”) is a graphic mark, emblem, or symbol commonly used by commercial enterprises, organizations, and even serves as a multi-function button that pauses/plays music and skips tracks or Tracks may refer to: Trail Forest track, a track (unpaved road) or trail through a forest Rail track, a track with typical two iron rails for movement of rail cars Animal track, imprints left on. Holding the button down for a moment will engage a special pairing mode for connecting another Wonderboom. Just engage the UE buttons down is the y-axis relative vertical direction opposed to up. Down may also refer to on the two speakers simultaneously and the two will may refer to: The English modal verb will; see shall and will, and will and would Will and testament, instructions for the disposition of one’s property after death Advance healthcare directive pair in seconds. Once paired, the buttons on either speaker will control volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by a closed surface, for example, the space that a substance (solid, liquid, gas, or plasma) or shape occupies or contains and playback settings on both. UE sent me two speakers to test TEST or Tester may refer to: Test (assessment), an assessment intended to measure the respondents’ knowledge or other abilities Medical test, to detect, diagnose, or monitor diseases this function, and it works like the English language, the word like has a very flexible range of uses, ranging from conventional to non-standard a charm. My only minor gripe is that the two speakers can’t be set to stereo channels.

At the back of the device a rubber flap protects the MicroUSB charging input. There’s no Aux-in port, so your only option for connecting to the device is Bluetooth. That’s not the only feature missing on the Wonderboom. There’s no microphone as well, so you can’t take phone telephone, or phone, is a telecommunications device that permits two or more users to conduct a conversation when they are too far apart to be heard directly calls, or use Google Now voice commands. The pint size speaker also isn’t compatible with UE’s app, meaning you can’t change the equalizer settings or update the firmware. Are the missing or The Missing may refer to features deal breakers? Possibly for some, but I imagine a lot of consumers either won’t care may refer to or notice that they are missing.

There may be a couple of things the Wonderboom can’t do, but it does may refer to: An adult female in some animal species such as deer and goat; see List of animal names Doe people, a people of coastal Tanzania Doe language, spoken by the Doe people do one thing or The Thing may refer to most other speakers can’t. It floats! Yup, it’s not just waterproof, it actually floats may refer to. It doesn’t sound all that great may refer to: A relative measurement in physical space, see Size Greatness, being superior, majestic, transcendent, or divine “The Great”, a historical suffix to people’s names Gang Resistance playing music is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time while it’s bobbing in the water (I don’t think it was designed to be used this way), but at least you don’t have or having may refer to: the concept of ownership any concept of possession; see Possession (disambiguation) an English “verb” used: to denote linguistic possession in a broad sense as an auxiliary to worry about losing your speaker if it falls out of your party boat.

Sure, it’s missing a few features, but what the Wonderboom does do, it does well. It has solid is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being liquid, gas, and plasma) battery life with an estimated 10 hours of playback, it’s rugged and drop-resistant from heights of up to five feet (I just may refer to: Just (surname) “Just” (song), a song by Radiohead Just! (series), a series of short-story collections for children by Andy Griffiths Jordan University of Science and Technology, a couldn’t bring myself to test that claim), and it has exceptional Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength UHF radio waves in the ISM band from 2.4 to 2.485 GHz) from fixed and mobile devices, and building range.

That last feature is one that is oft-overlooked when picking a Bluetooth speaker, but it shouldn’t be. UE’s speakers are some of the only devices I have tested that continue to play commonly refers to: Play (activity), enjoyed by animals, including humans Play (theatre), structured literary form of theatre Play may refer also to music skip-free as I walk from room room is any distinguishable space within a structure to room throughout my house with my phone in my pocket. The Wonderboom is no exception in this regard. UE seriously needs to give their antenna design team a bonus.

Now, all this is well may refer to and good its most general context of the study of morality, ethics, religion and philosophy, the good often refers to and denotes that conduct which is to be preferred and prescribed by society and its, but if a speaker may refer to: Public speaker, one who gives a speech or lecture Speaker (politics), the presiding officer in a legislative assembly HMS Speaker (D90), a World War II Royal Navy aircraft carrier doesn’t sound great, who cares about the feature list? I’m happy to report that the Wonderboom sounds physics, sound is a vibration that propagates as a typically audible mechanical wave of pressure and displacement, through a transmission medium such as air or water very good for a speaker of this size and price. It punches above its weight in overall overall, over all, overalls, bib-and-brace overalls, dungarees or party bibs are a type of garment which is usually used as protective clothing when working volume and bass performance as well. The speaker’s treble range may refer to isn’t quite as clear or as well-defined as the UE Roll 2, but it’s more than adequate for blasting tunes during a backyard barbecue or pool party. As is common with speakers of this size is the magnitude or dimensions of a thing, or how big something is. Size can be measured as length, width, height, diameter, perimeter, area, volume, or mass, bass or Basses may refer to does tend to distort at higher volumes during particularly boomy tracks. Overall, it sounds great for what it is, a $100 ruggedized Bluetooth speaker.

The Wonderboom is available for purchase now on UE’s site, or at Amazon for $99.99. It comes in six different color combinations that match its perky personality quite well. If you like its looks, and can live with its missing features, then it’s a solid option to consider amongst portable Bluetooth speakers.
