Q: How do I setup my BOOM 2?

ULTIMATE EARS BOOM 2 setup

You can connect your BOOM 2 to your smartphone, tablet or other device using either Bluetooth or the auxiliary input.

Bluetooth

Out of the package, your BOOM 2 is ready to pair with your first Bluetooth device. Here’s how:

  1. Turn the speaker on by pressing the power button on the top of the speaker. The power indicator will glow white, the Bluetooth connect button (above the power button) will blink white rapidly, and you will hear a tone indicating the speaker is ready to pair.
  2. On your Bluetooth device, go to the Bluetooth menu and scan for devices (make sure Bluetooth is enabled).
  3. Select BOOM 2 from the list of devices.

NOTE: BOOM 2 volume is set to maximum when you pair it to an iOS device for the first time.

Once paired and connected, you’ll hear an audible confirmation from the speaker. This means your BOOM 2 is ready to use. You can pair additional devices with your speaker, see “Pairing additional Bluetooth devices with my BOOM 2”

Auxiliary Input

  1. Turn the speaker on by pressing the power button on the top of the speaker.
  2. Connect the speaker to your Bluetooth device using a 3.5mm analog cable (not included).

NOTE: Use only a 3-pole (non-microphone or inline remote cable) auxiliary cable.

NOTE: If a Bluetooth device is connected to the BOOM 2 while playing audio from an auxiliary connection, the Bluetooth device will take priority and the stream from the auxiliary device will stop.

IMPORTANT: The USB connection is solely for charging your BOOM 2. It won’t enable you to use your speaker as an audio-output device when connected to a computer.
