Ultimate Ears has performed well in many of our previous tests. For example, the UE Megaboom was test winner at last year’s test of more expensive travel speakers. We have also tested Wonderboom separately, but how does it perform compared to the competition? We like the rounded format and the string that fits on the soap shelf in the shower. It can handle it because it is well protected against the elements. Since last year, several new colour options along with two fun patterns have appeared.

Naturally, you can get Wonderboom in a colour or pattern that suits you.

 

The control is simple with large, clear buttons. A button is also used to connect two Wonderbooms, but no stereo sound is given. Unfortunately, the Boom app isn’t supported, so you can’t use it to hook up a bunch of speakers. Logitech claims it’s easier. We think it’s sad. It lacks a microphone, so you can’t use it for phone calls, or to get voice assistants. However, it promises a range of 30 metres, which is good.

The most important is how it sounds, and Wonderboom provides just as much fun as the look suggests. It plays louder than you might think, and delivers deep bass. But that’s not the only thing that impresses us. You also gets a clean mid range with a clear and well-defined sound. Moreover, the treble is clear, without harsh edges. Thanks to the omnidirectional sound, it’s well suited for a group of friends at the beach with everyone hearing the music equally good.

Conclusion

Annonse

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom is an excellent, small Bluetooth speaker with many qualities and few issues. It has a neat design, is waterproof, plays both loudly and deeply, and has a great price. The only thing it really lacks is the ability to hook up in a stereo combination. Aside from that it’s a fantastic, well-sounding, little speaker, that you can bring along wherever it is needed. It is built to take a beating, and continues to play even if it’s pouring.

 

Also in this test

Libratone Too

A practical beauty

Libratone Too is easy to carry, nice to show off, and it sounds very good.

Convenient size. Excellent app. Can be paired. Very good sound quality.
Not completely waterproof. Impractical touch control. Omnidirectional audio is not always appropriate.

JBL Flip 4

Bass heavy party speakers

Perhaps Flip means that this bass heavy party speaker is giving the competitors the finger?

Can be stereo connected or operated in party modes. Sturdy and durable. Unusually powerful bass.
No possibilities of fine tuning the sound. The sound lacks finesse for more finely tuned music.

Getting the right sound is tricky, and unfortunately the disadvantages also outweigh the advantages.

Very smart carrying strap/charger cable. Supports fast charging.
Hard to find a volume that sounds good for everything. A slightly dull design. No app.

Skullcandy Barricade XL

Powerful and it floats

Barricade XL is a party speaker with adequate bass, which floats if it falls into the water.

Good volume. Engaging sound. Can charge mobile phones. Sturdy and floats in the water.
Extremely dominant bass. Risk of resonance. On the bigger side for trips.

Bose Soundlink Micro

Convenient and easy to use

Very easy to use and bring along to the beach, but you have to compromise on sound.

Sturdy with a handy rubber strap. Microphone and voice assistants. Party mode and stereo pair.
No aux input, only wireless. Mediocre sound quality. Short battery life.

Long lasting armoured speaker

Stryde is a sturdy speaker packed with features, but the sound isn’t great.

Requires a special charger. Excessive bass that gives resonance. Average sound quality.

Denon Envaya Mini DSB-150BT

Updated and well-sounding

A former best buy has corrected all the errors and is now best in its class.

Nice looking for a waterproof speaker. Can be connected in a stereo pair. Excellent sound quality.
No app for audio settings. The buttons are tricky to use.

Sober, but afraid of water

Touring XS is better suited indoors than by the pool, especially as it is also a bit low-key.

Very sober leather design in pretty colours. Excellent battery life. Easy handling.
No dust or water protection. No features whatsoever. Problematic bass.
