Gadget of the week: The beat just got better with the portable Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2


The pocket-sized, portable WONDERBOOM™ Bluetooth® speaker with surprisingly clear, crisp sound and big, beautiful bass soon became the go-to accessory for conjuring the magic out of music in 2019 – and the next generation of this critically acclaimed speaker is here in time for the summer holidays! 

The Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM™ 2 speaker rocks a bigger battery, brassier 360-degree sound, a higher IP67 rating and vibrant two-tone fabrics, making it your most-valued-guest for chilled afternoon soirees or epic all-night parties!

Designed to look as good as it sounds

The WONDERBOOM 2™ has a redesigned button interface on the top, which means it’s now even easier to play, pause and skip to the next track directly on the speaker. The wraparound speaker grille creates an immersive music experience, complemented by athleisure-inspired two-tone fabrics in vibrant colours, all housed in a robust yet portable build.  

Meet the all-new Outdoor Boost 

Ultimate Ears cranked up the intensity of the bass with the all-new, extra loud Outdoor Boost feature. Music lovers will get lost in the music no matter where they are, with a sound that’s specifically tuned for listening outside. Thanks to the WONDERBOOM 2’s new Outdoor Boost feature, adding a special soundtrack to each of life’s memorable moments has never been easier.  

13 hours of never-ending beats 

Gone are the days of awkward silences as a result of straying too far from a power source. The WONDERBOOM 2’s battery is designed to last 30 percent longer and produces 13 hours of killer sound.

Pair two for stereo boom 

This ultraportable speaker plays well with others and lets listeners immerse themselves in beautiful, truly wireless stereo sound. One push of a button wirelessly pairs two WONDERBOOM 2™speakers to produce double the sound and crank up the mood. 

Dips and drops have never sounded so good! 

This speaker gives “portable” an entirely new meaning. With a high IP67 rating, the WONDERBOOM 2™ will survive the sandiest of beaches, the odd drop here and there and keep the music flowing while making a splash. Being waist-deep in summer fun now comes with a soundtrack.   

It keeps things simple by sporting a stylish hanging loop, so it can be safely clipped and rocked to a dance party, a mountain bike trail ride or a Sunday stroll with the mates. This is one speaker that’s built to survive the elements. 

A sequel that beats the original 

The WONDERBOOM 2™ has redefined on-the-go music listening. Its new audio features fit any outdoor environment and the immersive 360-degree music experience, courtesy of its true stereo sound, means bigger, better music enjoyment that lasts all day and can survive any condition.
