I've tried out Bluetooth wireless speakers of various shapes and sizes and can't recall any sounding so good as the Scosche BoomBOTTLE ($149.95). Shaped like a rubberized water bottle, the BoomBOTTLE fits perfectly in a standard-sized cup holder or bottle cage and has enough power to rock you and everyone else riding nearby!
Pairing the BoomBOTTLE with your iPhone or iPad is intuitively easy. I didn't even have to read the manual accompanying the product. When I held down the central power button, it emitted a tone and an English-speaking female voice informed me I was in pairing mode. Then without further interaction from me, the voice announced the pairing procedure was successful. After that, the music flowed from my phone to the BoomBOTTLE.
Two high-quality 3 watt 40mm drivers sit on either end, providing discernible stereo separation. A passive subwoofer in the middle rounds out the range of sound. Each driver has an omni-directional sound diffuser to direct sound in all directions. Whether standing upright or on its side, the BoomBOTTLE's orientation didn't change the impressive sound quality pouring out of it.
