PECHAM C26: Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
I am on a quest to find the most rugged waterproof Bluetooth speaker. Ideally the speaker that I am looking for must have a full waterproof rating and a powerful sound quality.
The PECHAM C26 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker was close in meeting my expectations, but it's not the ultimate rugged Bluetooth speaker. PECHAM c26 looks rugged and it absorbs the shock of a drop, thanks to the rubber surrounding the speaker. However, nowhere in the manual or the product description page was I able to find the actual IPX rating of the speaker. I contacted the company to gather this info and received no answer (I assume poor customer service).
I didn't want to fully submerge it into water so I tested it against a splashing water at the beach and it did great. I am assuming its rating is at least IPX4 or IPX5.
PECHAM C26 has a total output of 10W which is very loud for its size. When playing music on maximum volume the sound will cover a large room size and a poolside party. There are, however, a few flaws to having big sound without the proper execution. For example when a song has a strong bass the speaker starts to have some distortion when used on high volume.
Design and Features:
Although the speaker has the typical design that many sellers on Amazon use, it looks and feels rugged. I dropped it few times to test it and it survived about 3-5 feet drops. Other features worth mentioning:
