As the weather gets warmer and summer looms around the corner, I find myself daydreaming about spending hours at the river, swimming in the cool pockets of still waters. Wouldn’t it be great to bring a speaker? But, I don’t want to ruin it by accidentally dropping it in the water.
NYNE Multimedia has solved that problem with a fully waterproof Bluetooth speaker called Aqua. Not only can you drop the external audio source right into a body of water, but it will also float, so you don’t have to worry about it sinking to the bottom of the pool.
Similar to Apple Watch, the Aqua has an IPX rating of seven, which means it is fully submersible under water for 30 minutes at a depth of one meter. Because the entire speaker is encased in rubberized material designed for floating, there is probably never going to be a time when it will be fully submersed under water for 30 minutes. So, you don’t even have to worry about that.
The speaker connects to your iPhone using Bluetooth, or you can open up the waterproof sealed connection port and plug in a device that is not Bluetooth supported using the 3.5mm jack.
Its battery power lasts for up to 10 hours of continuous playback. Hopefully, you aren’t swimming in a lake for more than 10 hours. When you get home, you can recharge the battery using the included micro USB cable.
The Aqua comes with a waterproof silicon strap. So, you can hang it over your showerhead and listen to talk radio while in the shower. Or, throw it over your shoulder while you hike through the sand from your car to the water’s edge at the beach.
It also features a built-in waterproof speaker for making and taking phone calls. When a call comes in, there is no need to get out of the Jacuzzi to answer your iPhone. Just push the call button and say hello. Then, remind the caller of how great your life is because you are sitting in a Jacuzzi while talking on the phone.
The speaker has a pause/play button, volume controls, and preset equalizer settings so you can tweak the balance of sound, depending on the type of music you are listening to.
NYNE Multimedia’s fully waterproof Aqua comes in white with blue or gray with blue. You can pick one up today on Amazon for $130.
