    Great, durable speaker

    We purchased this 2 years ago and have taken it with us paddle boarding, to the beach, camping and everywhere else. Recently, we took it on our golf cart, through the neighborhood, to look at Christmas lights. My husband took a sharp turn and the speaker fell off the dash board into the road. We then ran over the speaker with the back tire and heard a loud crunch. When we picked up the speaker it was banged up and almost broken in half. But, when we connected it to music, it still sounded great!

    Best waterproof speaker

    I'm a girl that likes to sing in the shower. I used to use an old alarm clock cd player. When I was looking into waterproof speakers, this was one of them. I'm glad I chose this one. It sounds amazing, even outside the shower. You can turn up the volume, change the song and even answer calls, right from the speaker. I connected it to my ipod. I can leave the ipod in my bedroom, and walk into the living room with the speaker and it stays connented. It also floats in water. I did a sink test. The charge lasts forever. I guess the only downside would be choice of color: red, black and orange.

    I love this speaker. I strap it to the front of my kayak and play music from my phone or mp3 player in my drybag that's strapped to the seat. I've had it strapped up there, speaker up, while it's pouring down rain and never had an issue.. the charging port is protected by a removable plate that has a rubber o ring around it..that would be the speakers only vulnerability.. I'm not sure how I would feel about holding it under water for a period of time, but as long as that plate is properly secured and the rubber ring hasn't been damaged, it seems like it would be fine if submerged temporarily. But for the price ya can't beat it.

    GREAT SOUND and supposedly WATERPROOF. a week at the beach up n down elevators and a 100 yard walk to the beach wore the carabiner strap to a thread or two in a 4 day period. Called company when they opened (9am PST which was 12pm EST our time), explained and they said they would send a part for replacement.... I guess time will tell, hopefully I am able to add comments later as to the long term. BE WARNED for trouble here, I just do NOT believe this unit could be the only one.

    Got this for my daughter for Christmas. Has been used around the pool, float trips and just around school. It does float. Has great sound. Is not as loud as larger units but is perfect for use when I work in the yard or on the car. Plug phone into power source and use blue tooth. Has great range. Will have to buy myself one soon, can't keep borrowing hers. The blue tooth allows you too keep phones in watertight device and still play music on float trips. Only bad part was that best buy does not stock product in store, had to order it before listening to it.

    I love this speaker. I use it all summer long in the pool and at the beach. I also use it in the shower. It can get very loud and remains clear at the same time. There is not a ton of bass but I wouldnt say it's lacking. It is not small and not very light so if your looking for something to put in your pocket this is not for you. I love this speaker and it is a perfect outdoor Bluetooth speaker.

    Works great for me. I take it to the river almost daily. I only charge it once every two days and it hasn't died on me yet. Sounds great although I wish it were slightly louder it is loud enough for everyone in my group to enjoy. Speakerphone works great so no having to take my phone out around the water. Would recommend to friends

    Great speaker! I read the reviews on this product before I made a purchase for my son. The speaker is not only stylish, but it has an amazing sound and battery life. We took it to Cancun and he let the speaker float in the water with him with no problems. The speaker is completely waterproof and wonderful to use around water.
