Water sports and the great British weather are hardly a mix when you’re planning to use portable speakers outside. The same can be said for extreme sports in general.

Well that was the case. That was until ECOXGEAR landed in the UK this year.

Launching their range of waterproof portable Bluetooth speakers, ECOXROX, ECOXSTONE and ECOXBT; ECOXGEAR have taken things to a new level, and what they’ve given us is a dynamic piece of kit that makes listening to anything from London Grammar to AC DC and everything in between accessible any time, any place, anywhere!

ExPix were on hand to put the ECOXBT through its paces and we were seriously impressed. The whole look and feel of the ECOXBT speakers is pure quality; a fantastic ergo dynamic design with a sleek a rubberised shockproof casing, the ECOBT is stylish without losing any functionality.

And as for functionality, the ECOXBT is off the scale. Not only are these speakers shock resistant but they’re 100% waterproof to the point that you can fully submerge them and what’s more they float! So no more worrying about the depth of the water or wondering if you can still recover the ‘brick’ from the bottom; with the ECOXBT you can use the speakers in or on the water and sit back and relax safe in the knowledge that they’re going nowhere. And being shock resistant they’re great for on land too, be it mountain biking, BMX, skate; whatever you’re into you can take the ECOXBT speakers with you whatever the terrain or weather.

And as for the sound, well that’s just something else! In our opinion these are the best speakers we’ve tested so far. No distortion even at top range with deep, deep silky notes delivered smoothly to the ear.
And if all that’s not enough to tempt you the ECOXBT are Bluetooth enabled so that you can stream from your devices and they can also be used as a hands free speakerphone with the added benefit of the noise cancelling mic.

ECOXGEAR say that the ECOXBT are designed to be among the world’s most rugged and portable speakers and I think we have to agree.
