Extended Use Review: EcoRox Bluetooth Speaker
Enjoy tunes played wireless from your smartphone or Bluetooth enabled device with the EcoRox Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker! The EcoRox is a small rugged self powered and rechargeable lasting up to 10 hours of play time! The range of wireless play is around a max of 33 feet making it great for use on a kayak. Its IPX7 full submersible waterproof rating ensures the speaker to be protected against accidentally rolling your kayak. If not mounted it also floats!
The EcoRox is excellent for time spent out on the water when you’d like to enjoy music or even back at camp around the campfire. Its volume is loud enough to vibrate your entire kayak while providing a clear sound on windy days. For such a compact speaker the bass is excellent!
The EcoRox has two mounting options which make this a superior choice in Bluetooth speakers for water sports. The integrated carabiner allows for quick clipping the speaker to a pack or bungee. In addition on the bottom of the speaker molded in is a brass 1/2-20 threaded insert allowing it to be compatible with any RAM or Yak Attack system.

- Various Flush Mounting Options
1″ Screwball with 1/2″ Mighty Bolt (For Track Mounting)
If mounted close enough to the user there are a series of control buttons located on the speaker such as volume controls and track controls. Keep in mind when mounting the speaker you will want to keep it within reach to turn it on and off and control the various functions although most can be controlled by your smartphone. Another feature is you can take speaker phone calls as it includes an integrated Microphone.
