The Wonderboom Packs a Big, Outdoor Sound Into a Tiny Speaker

* Small size but crisp, powerful sound
* Splash-proof, water-resistant and safe for outdoor use
* Ideal for summer entertaining

The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Bluetooth Speaker is a surprisingly powerful yet small portable speaker with up to 100 ft of Bluetooth range, making it one of the best choices for outdoor speakers.

If you’re hosting a party and want a quick, easy way to play some music off your phone, the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom is a solid, affordable and high-performance option. Measuring just over 5 inches tall, it’s surprisingly portable and easy to take on the road with you as well.

This Bluetooth speaker stands out for its IPX7-rated waterproofing, making it one of the few standalone portable speakers that’s safe to use at a pool party (its IPX rating essentially means it can withstand immersion in water for up to 30 minutes).

With the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom, you can play music poolside without fear of kids’ splashing or your guests’ cannonball dives shorting out the speaker. Like other Ultimate Ears speakers, the Wonderboom is highly rated for crispness and clarity, notably preserving strong mids even at upper volume levels.

The battery lasts up to 10 hours and the Wonderboom is drop-tested as well, making it one of the safer choices among durable outdoor speakers. Another feature worth noting is that the diminutive Ultimate Ears Wonderboom can be paired together for an even bigger 360-degree sound, thanks to their latest-generation Bluetooth technology, which lets these portable speakers connect to a single source for a wide-ranging stereo sound.
