Audio Pet Bluetooth Speakers: Cute, Compact & Waterproof

I have been going to trade shows like the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas every year for decades now, to try to find the best consumer gadgets to review. I also try to go to shows like Comic-Con, as today's toys are increasingly intelligent and connected. So I was glad to see the Audio Pet Animal Bluetooth Speaker ($39.99) from My Audio Life at the most recent New York Comic-Con. The company let me try the adorable Narmony, a Narwhal that would be at home under the sea, or more accurately, submerged one meter for up to 30 minutes according to it's IPX7 waterproof rating.

That waterproof rating alone shows this is no toy, even though it is the size of a baseball and comes in cute designs. Then there's the sound, which is decent on its own, but if you pair them you can experience true stereo sound. And you can mix and match speakers from the Splash line, which is fun. It's just a little tricky, as you connect them to each other and then pair one to your iPhone. Instructions are on the company's website. Also keep in mind that My Audio Life also sells non-waterproof models, so double check which one, or ones, you want.

Pros

  • Multiple adorable animal designs
  • Pair two for stereo sound
  • Waterproof
  • Decent sound
  • Size of a baseball

Cons

  • Make sure you get the waterproof models

Final Verdict

Kids today have access to cooler and better technology than I did as a kid, and the Audio Pet Animal Bluetooth Speaker from My Audio Life is a great example.
