Ultimate Ears' small speaker is an option that should appeal to those who value portability. The compact look is one of the differentials of the device, which has a round shape with the straight bases, similar to a small can of sodas. In addition, the box is offered in several colors, all very striking, highlighting its most stripped proposal.
The equipment also has detached volume buttons on the front and a small wing that facilitates the transport or the fixation of the device in any compatible support. In addition, to make users safer, the manufacturer has adopted the IP67 certification, which prevents water or dust damage. The canister can be submerged up to one meter for a period of 30 minutes and the USB charging connection has a small protective cap that prevents water or dust from entering.

The Wonderboom EU's 10 Watts RMS power should be enough to spark a small party or listen to music in more open locations. The number is within the average of the segment in which the device operates, after all, we are talking about a very small box. 40mm drivers should offer good range and volume.
However, given the 90 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, midrange and treble can be compromised with small distortions, which may not please audible users. In addition, the speaker distributes the sound in 360, which can favor the positioning of the device in many ways, keeping a good listening experience for everyone around. According to the manufacturer, the range for reproduction can reach 33 meters.
Wondeboom lets you control music playback directly from a button on the top of the device. In addition, two speakers can be paired to create an integrated sound system. The protection employed in the device also reflects longer durability, even when the device is subject to dropping.

Wonderboom's battery can yield, according to Ultimate Ears, up to ten hours of continuous playback, which is good autonomy for standards of devices of this size. Charging time is also not very high, averaging two and a half hours. However, a fast charging function would be more interesting.
Even having a certain time in the market, Wondeboom still has a high official price within its category, costing $ 499 in the official store. However, the j model can be found in black for as little as $ 299.99, according to Compare TechTudo. Similarly, there are retailers who offer the EU box for more than the official price. In that case, it's worth researching a lot to actually get the device for a reasonable amount.
