Catalyst is no stranger to making waterproof cases for Apple devices and today have unveiled their most ambitious case yet: the Ultimate Waterproof Case for your Apple HomePod. Now you don’t have to worry about ruining your HomePod if you’re outside lounging around the pool or if you’re enjoying the sun and get caught in a sudden rainstorm. With a double O-ring and marine-grade stainless steel latches, the Catalyst Waterproof case is IP68 waterproof rated to 10m (33′). Catalyst’s True Sound Aquaphonic™ acoustic technology is specifically tuned for poolside bass resonance and clear sound transmission.
“This case truly shows our industry leading design and engineering capabilities,” said Co-Founder and Chief Designer Josh Wright. “This waterproof Apple HomePod case is the only solution in the market uniquely designed to complement every feature of the device while providing 360° protection. Now you can listen to music, news, control your home air conditioner or security system and add to your weekly grocery list from 33 ft (10m) under water. We’re certain that no one else has thought to make an AC powered waterproof speaker. The new waterproof HomePod case is unrivaled in the market and will change the way you live your life.”
The case also features a clear polycarbonate top housing that allows the HomePod’s design to show through and also allows you to use the responsive Apple touch surface. It is also drop proof to 2m (6.6′) and an optional waterproof extension cord will power your speaker for hours on end. With the case, you will not only be able to listen to your music in the water, but the Aquaphonics™ True Sound acoustic technology even allows for Siri voice recognition while under water. Now you’ll be able to ask Siri to time your laps in the pool, create notes on your HomePod, change songs, or even call your mom from as deep as 33ft below the surface.
