Waterproof Speakers Give Your Phone Rock Star Protection

These days phones are much more than just a way to call someone. They’re internet equipped mini-computers that double as both maps and stereos when we’re on the go. Instead of filling boomboxes with expensive batteries, or trailing a power cord through your yard, smart phones make it possible to work on your tan without sacrificing your favorite tunes.

While it may be convenient, using your phone to provide poolside concert isn’t very smart. One splash of water from an unexpected cannonball is all it takes to render your smartphone useless. That’s why Grace Digital Audio invented the Ecoxpro Waterproof Speaker Case: a completely waterproof suit designed to keep your phone dry without muffling the sound.

Featuring a rubberized protective body, the Ecoxpro is fully waterproof (submersible down to ten feet) and comes with a built in 3″ speaker and external universal waterproof earbud jack. Once placed inside, the phone’s sound will be amplified through the speaker. It’s also impact-resistant, surviving drops from up to six feet, and is designed to float. So if your phone accidentally gets tossed into the water while you’re shaking out your towel, there’s no need to launch a diving expedition to find it.

In addition to housing your phone, the Ecoxpro also has room for your keys, a credit card, and maybe a few dollars in cash, which means you can keep more than just your phone protected while at the beach. According to this review, the Ecoxpro provides up to 30 hours of playback time on three AA batteries, and the rubberized outer shell includes platformed feet to allow your case to stand vertically while it’s open or closed.

At $79.99, the Ecoxpro might seem like a pricey accessory for some, but since it can keep you from replacing your $200 phone, drivers license, and debit card when they’re tossed overboard, we think it’s worth it.
