Here are some FAQs you need to know about Bluetooth waterproof speakers.
Question 1: Is It ‘Really’ Waterproof?
So here is what we mean when we say waterproof. It means it will survive if it gets splashed with a little water or even submerged in a bucket full of water.
However, in general, waterproof speakers are not intended to be immersed in water because this might cause permanent harm to the device.
Having said that, not all waterproof devices are created equal. How deep a waterproof speaker can go depends on its IPX rating.
Question 2: What Is An IPX Rating?
How deep and how waterproof your Bluetooth speaker is based on your IPS rating. Most Bluetooth waterproof speakers are given an IPX grade to indicate what a speaker can and cannot be subjected to.
If a speaker has an IPX0 rating, it means it has no water resistance capabilities. Buy one of these if you just plan to place it on the nightstand or a classroom.
Question 3: Do I Pick An IPX 8 Rating Speaker Then?
If your Bluetooth speaker has an IPX8 rating, you can just sit back and relax while your friends push each other in the pool. Toss it in the pool, and it will survive. An IPX8 Bluetooth Speaker can be fully submerged at depths of more than 1 meter in all circumstances.
But that doesn’t mean an IPX7 won’t work either.
An affordable option in IPX7 is the Philips S3505 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Bold Sound. It is shower ready, small in size, and can again be fully submerged in water up to 1 Meter deep.
So it’s a big yes for stress-free water pool parties for you and your crazy buddies.
Another great option for a travel party we recommend is the Fiodio IPX6 Waterproof Portable Speakers.
