Rugged Bluetooth Waterproof Shower Speaker Review
In this rugged bluetooth waterproof shower speaker review, I look at a relatively new model for Ancordworks. You may remember that I did a review on one of their other speakers not that long ago. If you haven’t read about it , or watched the video, you can learn more about that rugged wireless outdoor speaker here.
We found this little guy to be quite the performer. There is some really solid sound packed into its small circular package.
The speaker is roughly 3.5 inches in diameter and about 1.75 inches thick. So, though relatively small, it is quite substantial feeling in the hand.
In keeping with its claim to be waterproof the casing is a rugged rubberized material. Each of the buttons and the opening for the charging cord and micro SD cord are all tightly sealed. It is IPX5 waterproof rated. So what does that mean? It means that IPX-5 offers protection from a 6.3mm spray of water (12.5 liters per minute) in any direction for at least 3 minutes.
Highly portable at only 4.3 oz, you can take this anywhere. Included in the packaging, as seen in our rugged bluetooth waterproof shower speaker review, is a carabiner that allows you to attach the speaker to a backpack, belt loops, anywhere really.
Installed is a built-in battery offering 1000 milli-amp-hours of life. If you use the rule of thumb that 100 mah = 1 hour battery life, then you should get about 10 hours of play time on a charge. Not too shabby. Of course, your mileage may vary.
Other features include hands-free calling, charging cord with wall plug, and an 8 gig micro SD card in the box. A micro SD card included? That’s nice!
Now, as to the all important issue of sound quality. Naturally this is a very subjective subject. If you are expecting true high fidelity output as offered by Bang and Olefsun’s top of the line home system, you are bound to be disappointed.
We found the unit offered a substantial base and good quality sound so that it was an enjoyable listening experience. You can hear it in the video above.
We think you’ll find this little puppy is easy to carry with on the go, camping, beach, hiking, biking, you name it. Given its rugged construction, I would have to believe that is can handle some pretty rough handling. Given its inexpensive price, I’d say that it is worth the money.
