I have had my fair share of Bluetooth speakers from big to small to basic to fancy. However, this one has quickly become a favorite! The Scosche BoomBottle® MM Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
appears to be your typical Bluetooth speaker, however, this one has a couple of features I have not experienced in past speakers I have owned.
One of the features that stands out with this speaker is that it magnetically mounts your device to the Boombottle MM Mobile Speaker while also magnetically mounting the Boombottle MM to most metal surfaces. It comes with two adhesive metal pieces - one for the back of your phone and one to apply to a surface of your choosing (although you can apply either to any smooth surface that you choose). For me, I applied the larger metal piece to the underside of the shelving by my desk so I could keep the speaker hanging next to my workspace. I found this to be convenient for me. Just peel and stick! It stays stuck to the surface. Even with the added weight of the speaker, there was no sign of the speaker or the metal mount falling off. So it definitely keeps a nice hold!
Another amazing feature of this speaker is the built-in bottle opener. Yes, you read that right. It was not a typo - a bottle opener! The speaker is slightly angled on one end, which is where the opener is located. While you do need to hold the speaker while using the opener, it works great. Plus, it doesn't feel sharp in the event you touch it.
Of course, along with those two stand-out features are the typical features: wireless Bluetooth, waterproof, hands-free calling - you know, the usual. Pairing the speaker via Bluetooth my Android Samsung S7 Edge was easy and effortless. I just turned on the speaker, allowed my phone to scan for the Bluetooth and it connected instantly with no issue. It stayed connected as well without static or stuttering. I was able to enjoy my music without any interference and the sound was pretty good! I must say, it does get pretty loud too for such a small speaker! Along with that, you're able to accept phone calls and speak to the person on the other line with the built-in mic. Of course, you'll be on speaker phone so don't hold any personal calls, but it works great! I can hear the person on the other end of the line and they're able to hear me without any issues.
One thing to note is that because of the way the speaker is designed, style-wise, it actually fits in standard cup holders in your car or on top the ice chest so using it on the go isn't an issue. I mean, it's nothing fancy in that sense, but it is definitely an added bonus for convenience. Not to mention having a rechargeable battery that can share the same charger as my Android is pretty awesome. It's the same standard charging port and it allows for up to 12 hours of playback on a full battery. That's a pretty good battery life considering the ones I've owned in the past are generally 4-6 hours give or take depending on the speaker. Oh, let's not forget the dual pairing option either to allow you to really have a true surround sound going on! I don't know of many (or really, any other) Bluetooth speakers that allow this!
Needless to say, this is an absolutely amazing speaker. It has a lot of features packed into the small design which makes it a versatile speaker and honestly, one I consider to be one of the top speakers on the current market. It's definitely well worth the investment and would be an amazing gift to yourself or someone special in your life!
