ECOPEBBLE: An Affordable, Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker that Floats

I've tried a lot of highly rugged Bluetooth speakers, but they tend to come with a high-end price. The ECOPEBBLE ($59.99) from ECOXGEAR offers a rugged design and is waterproof to IP67 standards. The thing even floats! However, it's still quite affordable at under $60. 

The ECOPEBBLE sports a seven-hour battery and a universal mount. While it is affordable, it does only offer a mono speaker design, whereas some pricier competitors are larger and offer stereo speakers.

Pros

  • Floats and is waterproof to IP67 standards
  • Rugged design
  • Seven-hour battery
  • Universal mount

Cons

  • Mono speaker design

Final Verdict

If you want a rugged, waterproof, buoyant Bluetooth speaker, the ECOPEBBLE from ECOXGEAR is one of the most affordable options out there.
