Last week, I was asked to try out and review the Ancord Bluetooth shower speaker. The speaker can connect to your phone via Bluetooth, to an MP3 player with an aux cable, or play audio from an SD card. You can also answer phone calls as well. Its waterproof (IPX6) & shockproof, and has s strap for hanging.
I’ve never had a Bluetooth speaker before, so I was very excited to try this out. I’m a little behind the times as far as MP3s go. I still use an MP3 player since I don’t like to eat up space on my phone with them…so having the aux port is a big plus for me.
When you turn the speaker one, it tells you what mode you are in. You can cycle though modes by quick pressing the power button. There’s Bluetooth, which it’s default setting, and then FM radio. It took me a bit to figure out how to get it to aux mode. You have to wait to plug in the cord until after it tells you that you are in Bluetooth mode.
The sound it puts out is really good. If fact, it can be surprisingly loud. I had my MP3 volume below the halfway point and still had to turn the speaker itself way down. It could be clearly hear down at the other end of the house. The only thing I don’t like is that it interrupts the playback when you adjust the volume.
Overall, this is a pretty nice speaker. I haven’t gotten to use very much yet, so I’m planning to doing a follow up in a month or two to see how it’s holding up. The speaker is available on Amazon for $22.99 (+ shipping).
I received the above mentioned product at a discount to help facilitate my review. All onions are 100% my own.
