This is one angry-looking piece of audio tech.
This speaker is built tough and its aggressive styling wants you to know it’s up for a fight. Water resistant you say? Try water proof! Dunk it under the water, it won’t skip a beat. It has a ruggedness rating of IP67 meaning it’s fully submersible and can handle dirt, dust, sand and other annoying particle based minutiae.
 
The sound quality is decent for the most part and on par with similarly priced Bluetooth speakers, it does struggle with anything too bass heavy and distorts at higher volumes. It connects easily via Bluetooth and can also be connected via a 3.5mm audio jack, it can pump tunes for 16 hours straight and you can charge a separate device from the unit using the included USB connection.
 
An interesting feature that I was not able to test was that you can pair two of these units to create true stereo sound. While this would undoubtedly increase the performance, you’re buying two units where a single more expensive unit may be a smarter purchase?
