Grace Digital ECOXGEAR ECOXBT Waterproof Speaker Review

The Grace Digital ECOXGEAR ECOXBT Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker is a rugged, uncompromising audio buddy built to stream wireless audio in any environment. So waterproof it actually floats, the EcoXBT is great for indoors and absolutely perfect for outdoors – boating, beach parties, backpacking and much more. There’s an onboard speakerphone, so you’re always connected, and wherever you need your music, the EcoXBT is there ready to perform for up to 10 hours on a single charge.


Serious Industrial Chic

Though it weighs just 1.58 pounds, the ECOXGEAR ECOXBT Waterproof Speaker nevertheless boasts some heavy-duty specifications. It has a tough polycarbonate outer case further reinforced by a wrap-around rubber moulding which provides waterproofing and guards against shocks and impact damage. The moulded rubber also incorporates two carrying handles and rubber feet which add to the EcoXBT’s portability and stability.

On the front, a plain black speaker grille fashioned from stainless steel shields the speaker enclosure, whilst the prominent ‘ECOXGEAR’ logo sits just beneath. Available in a choice of three trims – orange, red or black – the EcoXBT has a secure easy-carry ribbed handle, and ships along with a detachable carabineer clip offering further outdoor security and mobility options.

Full-throated audio performer

With its twin full-range stereo speaker drivers, the ECOXGEAR ECOXBT Waterproof Speaker delivers an impressively loud music performance without distortion. Its sealed enclosure, which is guaranteed 100% watertight, has also been designed to give the EcoXBT a full, warm acoustic voicing complete with crisp treble and a tight, focused bass. Vocals sound clean, clear and well to the fore whilst the speaker also does full justice to the rest of the mix.


Ultra-convenient connectivity

With an A2DP Bluetooth range of 33 feet (10 metres), the EcoXBT speaker will comfortably stream audio from smartphones, tablets, laptops, iOS and Android devices – including Kindle Fire. In addition, the EcoXBT has a 3.5-mm stereo audio connection to link up any non-Bluetooth music devices you may also wish to access. An on-board hands-free speakerphone is available so that, whether you’re by the pool, in the shower, or anywhere else, you can stay in touch with your friends. And, with a rechargeable battery giving up to 10-hours playback, the EcoXBT is a great choice for an outdoor, go-anywhere, unplugged music lifestyle.

ECOXGEAR ECOXBT Waterproof Speaker review

I’ve had the EcoXBT for a month and I’m very pleased. In use, it pairs with my Samsung Galaxy and tends to get used in lots of different family situations. For example, the kids enjoy “bath-music” at bath time – anything from kid’s favourites to dance music. And yes, on occasions it has gone right in and got through the experience with no water damage.

The Bluetooth range is OK inside the home where it seems to stream upstairs from the ground floor with no trouble. It’s a great speaker for car journeys too. There’s more than enough volume and the rubber casing grips well without any sliding around whilst in use. The EcoXBT’s tonal balance seems good, with plenty of distortion-free bass and clarity throughout the range with nothing sounding thin or tinny. I would recommend anyone thinking of buying to go ahead.
