    Comments about ECOROX IPX7 Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Audio System:

    For the most part I'd have to agree with the reviews on this page however, I have had 2 units now and both had issues. I wanted this speaker to use on my boats. I don't really expect them to get wet but you never know so the water proof feature is a plus. I read some of the bad reviews of this product on other sites and decided to buy it anyway after seeing it in person and seeing it demonstrated by a West Marine associate. Based on the reviews I'd seen I opted to purchase the warranty, something I usually don't do but I'm glad I did.

    With my first unit (orange) I found that the bluetooth range on my boat was not as good as when I was at at home. Not sure why but I could live with it. But then the sound started getting all distored and the metal grate on the top vibrated so much I couldn't listen to the music anymore. Used it at home later and it sounded ok. Had the same thing happen my next time on the boat. If I put pressure on the metal plate it sounded better. I decided to exchange it for a new one. This time the black one. The metal grate looked different on the black one and better. Maybe this was an improvement. I was hopeful.

    Brought it out on the boat again and in the sun. Eventually the vibration started again but sounded fine at home. Seems to be an issue with the housing loosening up when it gets hot. Possibly even the speaker sockets loosen up causing more vibration.

    I really like this speaker. It suits my purpose but if I can't enjoy the music all the time why waste $100. I still have my warranty (which I recommend) and will continue to see how things go. If I continue to be dissatisfied I will return it for a refund. If you buy one, get the warranty.

      Comments about ECOROX IPX7 Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Audio System, Orange:

      First off, I took the Ecorox out of the box in the car on the way home to test it with the windows down and wind noise. I was immediately appalled by the excruciating sound quality at anything over half volume. However, when I got home I tried it again and it sounded like a completely different speaker. So there must have been some sort of breaking in period.

      On the build quality/functions: it looks and feels solid and durable. I will be using it on a PWC, so I ran it under the sink a couple times. Doesn't seem to have hurt it. The Bluetooth is foolproof, requires pushing 1 button. And the power/battery/bluetooth LED lights on the top are a nice touch to know it's working.

      Back to sound quality: It does what it should for a $100 bluetooth and lithium powered device. Nothing more, nothing less. I have tried it out on all kinds of music, electronic, country, rock, hip hop, and it produces everything with confidence. I bought it for the horribly long no-wake zones here in FL. It should work for that, but not high speed cruising. Vocals are nice and crisp, the mids and bass are decent. However, heavy metal with the fast paced guitar and drums gets distorted a bit. If that's all you listen to don't buy it. But if that's all you listen to you have bigger problems.

      Most impressive thing about this speaker so far is the battery. I took it out of the box after it sat there for weeks or months, who knows, and it has been on for an hour without charging it. That's a good sign in my opinion, for the power off battery life at least.

        Bought this sight unseen, mostly to use on my inflatable Zodiac 380 Yacht Line. Can't wait to use it this summer, also bought the suction mount adapter for the center console. It's a perfect size, design and sounds great.

          iTunes, iPhone, LifeProof Case and Ecoxgear!!! I strapped it to bow eye of a Laser Sailboat, love the tunes while racing. I am a the coolest cat participating in Frost Bite this year. Thanks to MK for showing it to me.

            My husband was thrilled to receive this present. He had the speaker up and running (from his iPhone) in a matter of minutes. We were both impressed with the sound output and quality based on the device size. We won't be able to try it on our boat (and in the water) until Spring/Summer. But if we do get a nice day, we may take it with us on a bike ride!
