Our take on the Scosche boomBOTTLE H2O

by Ralph Graves
Scosche

…and it floats

Here's one portable Bluetooth speaker that's not afraid of the water. Or the sand, or the mud, or the snow. The Scosche boomBOTTLE H2O is so watertight, it actually floats. And because it's tightly sealed, it's also dust-proof – ideal for the beach.

boomBOTTLE H2O Not only is the boomBOTTLE H2O waterproof, but it floats, making it easy to retrieve.

360° sound

While the boomBOTTLE H2O might be sealed against the elements, it doesn't hold back when it comes to sound. The up-firing mono speaker delivers rich, clear sound, with a passive bass radiator to ensure you get plenty of low tones. And the music radiates out in a 360° soundfield, so everyone gets to enjoy the music.

Good to go

The boomBOTTLE H2O is shaped like a small can, so it conveniently fits in any cupholder — be it your boat, car, folding chair, or bike frame. No cupholder handy? Use the included carabiner and clip it to your belt loop. The carabiner anchor on the boomBOTTLE H2O is reinforced so you don't have to worry about it snapping off.

Convenient charging

The built-in battery lasts for up to eight hours of continuous use. Its USB charging cable can either be connected to its AC power adapter, or plugged directly into your computer for easy charging.

Features 

Rugged Outdoor Design: The Scosche BoomBottle H2O portable Bluetooth speaker features durable IPX7 waterproof construction with a rubberized body and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) speaker covers to protect it from a variety of outdoor environments. Take it with you to the pool, beach, backyard, up in the mountains, or almost anywhere outdoors. It even floats for easy retrieval, if you accidentally drop the speaker in the water. In addition, the BoomBottle H2O fits in most water bottle cages and cup holders.

Note: The Scosche BoomBottle H2O portable Bluetooth speaker is not designed to be submerged and played underwater.

Passive Radiator Design: The Scosche BoomBottle H2O portable Bluetooth speaker employs one 2" up-firing speaker powered by a 5W amplifier and a passive subwoofer to produce impressive audio outdoors. The up-firing speaker sends music in all directions.

Bluetooth Version 4.0:  The Scosche BoomBottle H2O features built-in Bluetooth version 4.0 and supports Bluetooth profiles A2DP and AVRCP for wireless audio streaming and playback control. You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computer, or other Bluetooth devices. You'll also be able to control basic playback functions from the BoomBottle H20, such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next track. Bluetooth has a wireless range up to 33'.

Note: A single button press pairs your Bluetooth-enabled device with the BoomBottle H2O portable Bluetooth speaker. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the BoomBottle H2O.

Aux Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the Scosche BoomBottle H2O is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player with a headphone output. The Aux input is carefully covered with a protective rubber flap that closes/opens to protect against dust, debris, and water.

Rechargeable Battery: A rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery (2200mAH) provides up to 8 hours of continuous music playback. Use the included microUSB-to-USB cable to easily charge BoomBottle H2O from a free USB (type-A) port on your computer or a 3rd party USB/AC power adapter. The charging port is carefully covered with a protective rubber flap that closes/opens to protect against dust, debris and water.

Carabiner Clip: A carabiner clip is included to attach the portable Bluetooth speaker to your backpack, belt-loop, or chair.

3 places I absolutely did not expect to use the boomBOTTLE

Written by Julie Govan, Staff Writer - Creative, on 6/30/2014 11:08:00 AM

I got a chance to play with the boomBOTTLE H2O Bluetooth® over the weekend. I charged it for about half an hour, and when the charging light changed from red to blue, I figured I was ready to go. Pairing took about 30 seconds, even the first time, and then I threw it in my clothes basket and took it down to the laundry room. It was nice having something that felt sturdy enough that I could toss it into a pile of towels. Later that day, it was my sanding and painting buddy while I worked on a home improvement project. Again, I liked feeling like I could just rinse it off when it got dirty.

My kids were entranced by it when they first saw it. They each took turns holding it in the car and picking out which song to play on my iPhone. Later in the weekend, we went to the pool, which was how I was planning to use it when I first brought it home. We turned it on and got it playing, then threw it in the pool. No problems! When they found out I was bringing it back to work and didn't actually own it, there was a chorus of disappointed pleas. Something to think about for a summer full of outdoor time and kids who occasionally drop things.

So far so good

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is my first portable speaker, and it caught my eye being waterproof. This past weekend I took to the pool for the first time and it worked great. It paired quickly with my phone, had good volume for a portable speaker, and no problems after getting wet. Looking forward to using again and again.
Pros:
Compact size, waterproof, easy operation
Cons:
Bass is just okay
