Waterproof Versus Water Resistant
The Ecorox Bluetooth Boombox is a nifty little portable boombox that is waterproof versus water resistant so you can pump tunes while you paddle and not worry about it getting wet or even falling into the water. Waterproof means you can drop it into the water and submerge it and not only does it float but it will still work perfectly unlike a lot of water resistant devices out there.
Portable & Functional
The Ecorox is small enough to rest in the palm of your hand at 2.5″ x 5.3″ x 3″ and is extremely lightweight weighing in at just 11 ounces. In addition it comes with a handy removable suction cup that you can lock onto any flat surface in a jiffy. Just snap it on the nose of your SUP and you are ready to paddle! It works with Bluetooth technology so this means you can sync your Iphone or any other bluetooth device in seconds. Only caveat here if you wanna take it paddling is your Iphone will be along for the ride so its gotta have a waterproof case as well unless you like to take your chances.
Pump up the Volume
Volume wise it’s got plenty of juice to keep you pumped up during your paddle and its way better than a headset any day. With up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge you got plenty of time to complete the longest of paddles with tunes pumping.
So can I use it in the surf?
The suction cup device is not really recommended for surfing use and could easily pop off with the pressure of a wave. I used it in really small surf 1’-2’ and had no issues and it does float but its definitely risky business and could have you swimming to fetch it if the suction comes loose.
The Button Controls & Bluetooth Pairing
The Control buttons are simple and easy to use with volume and bluetooth buttons accessible across the top of the speaker. Just press the bluetooth button and it syncs up in seconds to your device. A rubber door on the back covers up the AUX input port and a micro-USB charging port. Also included is a carabineer so you can hang the speaker from a belt loop, backpack or just about anywhere.
Want to Take a Call in between your beats?
It can also double as a speaker phone to take calls in between tunes if you so desire.
All in all we love this little boom box and have taken it with us around the world. It’s the perfect paddle companion for keeping the beats going on your sup paddles and it’s amazing out of the water if you are chilling on the beach or at the hotel. I don’t leave home without it on any trip and the fact that its waterproof means it can get totally submerged and I don’t have to worry about a thing.
