About the Nyne Aqua

Sing in the shower, rock out in the pool

If you're like me, you've probably got a knee-jerk impulse to keep your personal electronic devices away from moisture — an inner voice that says "Don't use that cell phone in the rain!" or "Don't take that camera down to the beach!" So it's always refreshing to see a speaker like the Nyne Aqua, which was built not only to withstand a hearty splash, but even to float safely on the water. Its rugged, rubber-coated body even looks like an outrigger boat. This Bluetooth speaker pairs wirelessly with any compatible smartphone or portable music player. Keep your phone safe on dry land and take your tunes with you when you go into the water.

Nyne Aqua portable, waterproof Bluetooth speaker

The Nyne Aqua features a shower-ready, waterproof design and a silicone hanging/carrying strap.

If you're like me, you've probably got a knee-jerk impulse to keep your personal electronic devices away from moisture — an inner voice that says "Don't use that cell phone in the rain!" or "Don't take that camera down to the beach!" So it's always refreshing to see a speaker like the Nyne Aqua, which was built not only to withstand a hearty splash, but even to float safely on the water.

Answer phone calls from your inflatable raft chair

What if you're lounging in the pool when a call comes in? There's no need to rush out of the water and towel off. Just tap the dedicated "answer" button on top of the speaker one time to talk hands-free. Or tap it twice to send the call to your voicemail, so you can keep lounging. There are also built-in controls for volume and power, plus an EQ button that lets you cycle through four presets to adjust the sound to your liking. The built-in rechargeable battery gives you up to 10 hours of wireless music on a single charge.

From our Nyne Aqua review "A waterproof Bluetooth® speaker that floats":

"We plopped the Nyne Aqua right in the water. It didn't miss a beat...You'll be hard pressed to find a portable speaker that can travel more places. Indoors or out, on dirt or in water, the Nyne Aqua speaker can keep the music going."

— Jeff Miller, Crutchfield A/V writer

Be quiet so I can hear this!

Mark from Racine, WI on 6/23/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Can not believe the good reviews for this product. Maybe because some people received it for free. The Nyne Aqua may be water resistant but the sound quality is very poor. Siting on a patio table 15 feet away and it is difficult to hear. Put it in the pool and the sound is diminished further. There is NO WAY these reviews of people showering, swimming or kayaking are accurate. You would need to have an extremely quiet background to even hear this speaker. Maybe they forgot to mention they were wearing headphones! I now see the price has dropped from what I spent on it.

Pros: Seems to be water resistant.

Cons: Poor sound quality and zero bass.

Not an audiophile, but enjoy listening to Bach, etc. and audio books while I work. Hard of hearing, so the EQ adjustment is welcomed. Good volume. Use it from my iPod or tablet. Kevin guided me to a moderately priced speaker. Thanks.

Pros: Sound quality, EQ setting Rugged Price

Cons: Haven't found battery level indicator

Just what we needed

Crutchfield customer from Connecticut on 1/12/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

We bought this for hanging out on the deck with friends and by the pool. Very happy with the toughness of the Nyne and being waterproof is key too. It has great sound for a small portable and can be taken almost anywhere. The carrying strap/handle can be configured in many ways, both to carry or mount/hang it.

Pros: Sound quality, waterproof. toughness & bluetooth range.

Cons: Great battery life, as nothing portable has "amazing" battery life. No other cons found yet.

Good Product

Marco from Ohio on 12/19/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

So far so good. I use this in the bathroom and the sound is decent. I'm happy with the purchase.

Pros: Overall it's a good product.

Cons: One of the snap covers came off. It's not a biggy but still when you just purchase an item you don't expect this to happen.

Great little speaker. Bought it for my Mom to kayak with and take swimming with the golden retriever. Speaker has not been wet yet or used as a speaker phone so I can not review those qualities.

Pros: nice price, gets wet

Cons: not a whole lot of bass ( but o.k. )

Finally!

Vic from Pittsburgh, PA on 11/25/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have been waiting for a blue tooth speaker that I can use to listen to podcasts/audio books while I'm taking a shower and not having to worry about ruining speaker. There have been cheaper supposedly water proof blue tooth speakers but the sound quality was terrible in the shower. I was only able to listen to music prior now I don't have to waste time in the shower. I can listen to something worthwhile.

Pros: Waterproof, Good quality.

Cons: Sound quality is excellent but not as good as Bose bluetooth which is not waterproof.

Awesome speaker

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I won this speaker and I am in love with it. My boys love the fact that they are able to listen to music in the shower, it's even helped them to know when it's time to get out. (One song and they have to get out ) I have only charged it once and it's still got life.

Pros: Easy to use and water proof

Cons: None

Great Win! Great Speaker!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I won the Nyne Aqua (White/Blue) Bluetooth Speakers in a Crutchfield sweepstakes on their web page in July. I was saving it to use on my vacation and just got back a week ago. The sound quality was great! We used it everyday on the beach and in the room. At home I use it in my garage while working on my car with a longer plug. I was going to buy a cheap surround system for the garage but the Nyne Aqua sound fills the space nicely. Thank you Crutchfield for the sweepstakes win!

Pros: It's waterproof so I can listen to music in the bathroom without worry of damaging the speakers and missing phone calls because of loud music.

Cons: No cons, I WON IT!!!

Great Little Waterproof speaker

Punkrow21 from Parker, Arizona on 7/29/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Awesome little Bluetooth Waterproof speaker system. I live on the water so I was looking for an H2O resistant/proof speaker that was Bluetooth compatible, and has a decent range. There are no comparable products to the Nyne Aqua for it's class. I don't listen underwater, but it is submersible up to 3'.The sound is good. 4 EQ settings. I would have liked a little more detail in the instructions. This little guy comes with five instruction booklets. None go into a depth that I felt comfortable with, but I figured it out. Not extremely loud, but it floats!

Pros: Bluetooth, Battery Powered, Floats/Waterproof, 4 EQ Settings, 33 Foot range

Cons: Bare-Bones Instructions

Fantastic Purchase!

AliL from North Carolina on 7/14/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This speaker has been great so far! I bought it for my boyfriend for his birthday, and he loves it! We live by a lake & have a pool, so spend lots of our time on the water. We've only had it for about a month, so cannot speak to the longevity of the speaker, but for the 4 weekends we've used it, it has been great! No problems at all, the speaker is great and is a pretty decent volume. We have also been impressed with the range of the bluetooth (we have one bluetooth speaker where the phone must be within 5 feet of the speaker otherwise the sound cuts off). If both phone and speaker are fully charged, you can go about 30+ feet with the sound quality still sounding superb. We've fully tested it in the water (the fact that it floats is awesome!), and so far haven't had any issues at all. But again, please note this speaker is new, so who knows how long it will all last. This is the only reason I did not rate this speaker with 5 stars, because I haven't had it long enough to truly test it all out.

Pros: Waterproof!! Do you need anything more than that? Strong bluetooth capability, pretty decent sound

Cons: The flap that covers the back where you charge it can come loose, so just make sure to double check that before tossing it in the water

Features

IPX-7 Waterproof: The Nyne Aqua portable Bluetooth speaker is designed to float on water. With an IPX-7 rating, the Aqua can also be safely submerged under water (up to 3') for a short period of time. A rubber cover protects the speaker's Aux input and microUSB charging port. The Nyne Aqua is the perfect speaker to take with you to the pool, by the beach, out camping, or just out on the deck or front porch.

Built-in Bluetooth 3.0: The Nyne Aqua portable speaker features built-in Bluetooth 3.0 for wireless connectivity to your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows Phone/PC, Mac computer/laptop, and other Bluetooth compatible devices. Its supports wireless music streaming, hands-free communication, voice assistance, and auto-connection.

  • Wireless Music Streaming: Thanks to Bluetooth A2DP and AVRCP, you are able to stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device to the Nyne Aqua portable speaker; as well as control basic playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track from the Bluetooth speaker. The Aqua does not display song/artist information; this will still need to viewed from your Bluetooth smartphone, tablet, computer, laptop, etc. 
  • Hands-Free Communication: Thanks to Bluetooth HFP and the built-in mic, the Nyne Aqua can act as a speakerphone for your Bluetooth connected iPhone, Android phone, or other smartphone. You can answer, end, and reject calls with a simple press of a button on the Aqua speaker. You will still use your smartphone for advanced phone features. Music play is paused during a call and resumed automatically when the call ends.
  • Voice Assistance: You can also activate the voice assistant feature (like Siri for iPhone) on your smartphone from the Bluetooth speaker, so you can make a call by saying the name of a contact in your phone. By activating the voice assistance feature you can also say the name of an artist or song in your phone's music library for playback. 
  • Auto-Connection: This Bluetooth portable speaker pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled device with a single press of a button (only one device can be paired at a time). The speaker also supports automatic connection with your paired device after the speaker is powered off and powered on again.
Note: 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 Nyne Aqua.

Aux Input: In addition to wireless Bluetooth connectivity, the Aqua is also fitted with a minijack (3.5mm) aux input for connecting a non-Bluetooth audio device that features an analog audio output or headphone jack. When a stereo minijack audio cable is plugged in, the Aqua speaker switches to the Aux Input automatically. When the stereo minijack cable is unplugged, the speaker switches back to Bluetooth mode. The Aux input is protected by a rubber cover.

Stereo Sound w/ EQ Settings: The Nyne Aqua portable Bluetooth speaker offers stereo sound with four equalizer settings - Flat, Rock, Pop, or Jazz.

Rechargeable Battery: The Aqua portable Bluetooth speaker features a 2200mA rechargeable battery that can last up to 10 hours on a single charge. You can charge the built-in battery using the included microUSB-to-USB cable. Simply plug this cable into a free USB (type-A) port on your computer/laptop or into a 3rd party USB-to-AC power adapter (sold separately). If the speaker's LED power indicator flashes red quickly, it indicates that the battery is low and needs to be recharged.

Note: The unit's battery will require initial charging before using for the first time.

Silicon Strap: The Aqua Bluetooth speaker includes a silicon strap that can be used to carry the speaker over your shoulder or hang it by the deck, pool, or beach.

Q
do the speakers have enough volume for boating?
[ B  Mar 27, 2017 ]

A
It is loud. The speaker is loud enough to use on my 20 skiff when the engine is off. But not while underway. My engine is quiet, but the engine blocks out the music from the Nynex.
[ YVONNE M  Apr 06, 2017 ]
A
I own an 18 foot Stingray runabout with a 125 hp four stroke Yamaha outboard which is as quiet, if not quieter, then most inboard/outboards. I do not think the speaker is loud enough for anyone other than the person standing right next to it to hear it if the boat is underway at a speed much greater than idle.
[ Adam  Mar 29, 2017 ]
A
The speaker is great for water fun, but no...it is not the best for boating. The JBL Charge 3 has much better volume for boating. Hop this helps! Kluby

We hang ours from our wake tower. Great when not moving or at low speeds. Once you are really moving it's hard to hear depending on where you're sitting
