The OP1006 Sports Bluetooth Speaker may be the last Bluetooth speaker you’ll ever buy. While Bluetooth speakers are a dime a dozen, with most only offering a number of features, few offer IP4 and IPX5 dust and water resistant certifications coupled with LED lighting. The speaker offers both of those certifications along with an LED torch. The lantern style torch offers the ability to keep the tunes going while also allowing people to see in the dark.
The speaker itself is geared toward those of the outdoor persuasion including those who run, mountaineer, ride bikes, boat and so on. The speaker boasts a “binaural and vibrative” membrane design, that offers verbose sound on your excursions and outings.
The speaker offers both a wired connection via a 3.5 mm plug and wirelessly through Bluetooth version 2.1. Without interruption, the speaker can transmit 30Hz-20KHz frequencies up to 10 feet.
The speaker also comes with a microSD slot for your stored tunes. The slot is compatible up to 32GB or roughly 7,000 songs. Also, don’t worry about the speaker not being loud. It offers a loud 90 decibels. For those who don’t know, that’s the equivalent of a train whistle at a distance of 500 feet. With a built-in subwoofer, the speaker will keep your favorite tunes bumping. Also, don’t worry if your music isn’t in MP3 format, the speaker is capable of reading music in FLAC, WAV, APE and WMA.
The Bluetooth speaker is compatible with a number of devices, including iPods, iPads, various phones like the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge Huawei P8, the One M9 from HTC, and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It comes in three colors including light blue, army green or milk white. It comes with a hanging buckle — basically a carabiner — so you can place the speaker somewhere out of the way. Handy when you want to jam to music and not take up space on the table.
The speaker also supports hands-free calling with one button answering and calling with noise canceling microphones allowing you to carry on a conversation without missing a beat. Also, if you’re out and about and you ever get lost, the Bluetooth speaker features a handy landmark ping function to avoid the risk of becoming lost.
The sport Bluetooth speaker packs in a 2,200 mAh battery life that will last anywhere from six to eight hours depending on use. The power adapter is a DC5V adapter.
When you purchase the speaker, you’ll get the speaker itself, user manuals, a USB cable for charging and data transfer and one 3.5 mm audio input cable to plug into your various devices. It also includes a warranty card that you probably won’t need to use given its design, but better to have just in case.
So to sum it up, you’re getting a dust and water resistant bluetooth speaker that can be hung via carabiner. It’ll last 6-8 hours depending on use and supports the major music file types. As if that weren’t enough, it offers one touch call answering, a SOS ping function, is compatible with a number of flagships and other devices and it all comes in at a ridiculously small price. For $28.59 and free shipping, you’ll be getting the complete package when it comes to bluetooth speakers.Purchase from GearBest
