What is it?
This is a splash proof bluetooth speaker made by 1ByOne. It features all the goodies found in most bluetooth speakers, plus it is splash proof.

Build Quality: 4
I’ve been using 1ByOne products for a while now and i have to say the build quality of their products keeps getting better and better. This speaker is splash resistant. The speaker has a nice heft to it. It is wrapped in rubber which gives it a nice soft touch. It has a rope attached to 1 side which can be used to hang the speaker in a shower, door, a belt, etc. It kinda looks like the beats pill but kinda doesn’t. That is not really a good thing in my opinion, but it doesn't kill the product for me.

Features: 4.5
This device has all the standard bluetooth speaker features that you have come to expect over the years (Controls on device, Good Audio Quality, Compact Design, Long Battery Life). This one also comes with some added features like being water resistant (IPX5), Built-In Mic for phone calls, 1500mAh battery that should get you at least 6 hours of playback. It also has an aux-in so you can plug in devices that don’t support bluetooth.

Audio Quality: 4
Overall the sound quality is above average. At first i thought it was going to be bass heavy just to appeal to the beats crowd but it wasn’t. That not saying that it won’t thump when it is supposed to because it will. IMO the speaker’s EQ is well balanced, but seems to favor Bass and mids. I also feel the volume could possibly be louder but It good for the size of the device.

Value: 5
For what you get for $30 you can’t complain in the least. I seen more expensive devices that sound 2x worst than this one. Definitely worth the money.

Around the Web: 4.7

We use a lot of bluetooth speakers here at The Review Pre and this is easily one of the better ones. I still stand by the blue cube (Anker Bluetooth Speaker) but this is my go to speaker right now. Especially that it is splash resistant so it can be placed by pools, in the shower, or don't have to worry about the rain. If you are an outdoor person you can’t go wrong with this device. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable portable speaker,
