Scosche BoomBottle+

 

The Scosche BoomBottle+ is a very rugged, outdoor-friendly portable Bluetooth speaker that suffers from distortion issues with deep bass.

Solid audio performance at moderate volumes. Rugged design. Indoor and Outdoor EQ modes. Can charge external mobile devices.

Distorts significantly on tracks with deep bass.

Performance and Conclusions Let's briefly discuss the excellent Indoor/Outdoor modes. When you're outdoors, you tend to have few walls nearby, if any, which means you get fewer audio reflections, and thus, sound dies more easily. Higher frequencies in...

Scosche BoomBottle H2O

 

The Scosche BoomBottle H20 is a rugged, waterproof Bluetooth speaker that should be considered for its durability, if not its audio performance.

Waterproof. Delivers crisp, clean audio at moderate volumes. Can get quite loud on tracks lacking deep bass.

Minor distortion on tracks with deep bass at high volumes. No speakerphone functionality. Light on accessories.

Clearly, the selling point of the BoomBottle H2O is not its high fidelity audio performance; it can get quite loud for its size, but has issues with deep bass. The reason to own this speaker is its wonderful ability to get wet and keep working. It can...

Scosche BoomBottle H2O yellow

 

Probably not. But compared to Scosche's BoomBottle ($150, £120, but can be found cheaper online) which was released in May 2013, and the newer and smaller BoomBottle H2O ($100, £100), that iHome seems quite primitive. That's because the Scosche...

The Scosche BoomBottle H2O is a compact, waterproof Bluetooth speaker that offers decent sound for its size and solid 11-hour battery life. It fits in the bottle holder on your bike, can be stood upright on a flat surface, or hung by an included...

No speakerphone capabilities; has trouble with bass-heavy material at higher volumes.

While it has its sound limitations, particularly in the bass department, the downsized version of Scosche's BoomBottle H2O is a pretty decent little wireless speaker that's travel-friendly and repels water.

Scosche BoomBottle H2O review

 

Canister-style speakers that fit in your bike's water-bottle holder have been around for a while. In fact, long ago, in the pre-iPhone days, there was the iHome iH85 that used alkaline batteries and had a wired connection for your iPod. Remember that one?

Scosche boomBOTTLE H2O Speaker Review: A Rugged Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

 

Our Scosche boomBOTTLE H2O speaker review takes a look at a speaker that is rugged, waterproof, floats, and even fits nicely into the water bottle holder on your bike.

Design, battery life, waterproof.

Sound could be a bit better. Lack of playback controls.

The Scosche boomBOTTLE H2O Bluetooth speaker is a great speaker for the beach, by the pool, on the boat, or even cycling. It has decent sound and great battery life, fits nicely into a cycling water bottle holder, and is 100% waterproof so you don’t...

Review: Scosche BoomBottle bike-mounted Bluetooth speaker

 

A lot of people like listening to music while cycling, but don't want to unsafely shut themselves off from traffic noise by wearing headphones. There are already a few devices that address the issue, but Scosche recently introduced its own unique...

Additionally, it has a grippy rubber skin that helps keep out dust, absorb shocks, and fend off splashes.
