Your mobile speakers are cool. If you want to mount them in specific places, though, like your bike frame or inside the car, you’ll need to buy (or, worse, improvise) new accessories. Not the case with the Scosche boomBOTTLE, which comes shaped like a water bottle, so you can slot them into regular bottle cages and cupholders.
Want to enjoy sweet music while sipping beer in your all-in-one beach chair? Pop this into one of the cupholders and you’re good. No stereo in the car? Cupholder. On a bicycle? Use the bottle cage. While you’re walking? Your backpack’s bottle pouch. And so on.
Of course, it’s not all about mounting options. The Scosche boomBOTTLE claims to produce “remarkable sound” with its dual 3W 40mm speakers, passive subwoofer, and omni-directional cone for even distribution of sound. It has the typical spec sheet of your standard mobile speaker, too — Bluetooth for streaming audio wirelessly (33 feet range), a 3.5mm input for wired connections, a built-in mic for speakerphone pairing, integrated music controls and rechargeable battery (rated at 10 hours of playback).
Since it’s meant for use outdoors in the same places where a water bottle might be carried, it’s built to be both weatherproof (IPX4 splash-proof, with a protective screen to keep out dust and debris) and durable (shock-absorbing speaker grill covers and non-slip exterior). And just in case you just want to use it while doing homework in the kitchen, the speakers can be stood on the table, too.
The Scosche boomBOTTLE is available now, priced at $149.99.
