With a design not too dissimilar to a fat coffee mug, the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom is a rough and ready Bluetooth speaker, design to cope with being bashed around a bit and can float in shallow water for half an hour. But how does it rate compared to other Bluetooth speakers currently available? We asked the experts at What Hi-Fi and TechRadar for their verdict on the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom.

The only negatives found are with the speaker's low frequencies, but What Hi-Fi delight in the overall sound quality, its portability, and its weatherproofing.
