Advantages

The ROCKTECH Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is a universal wireless speaker for Bluetooth-enabled devices as it is compatible with almost all of them. Some of these devices are the iPhone, iPad, iPod, androids and smartphones.

Even when the device that is connected does not have a Bluetooth feature, the speaker can still be used with a wired connection through a USB port or a 3.5 mm auxiliary input. That way, the users get to have several options on how to connect their devices to the Bluetooth speaker. It also allows convenient use of the device which is always a plus.

Another feature of the ROCKTECH Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is its water resistant design. The device was given an IPX4 rating for its water resistant capacity which makes it good for outdoor activities or outings where the device may be exposed to various weather elements.

To add to the outdoorsy feature of the speaker, the device was also designed to be sand proof. Both the water resistant and sand proof features are nice safety features which will protect the device from elements that will cause destruction to the device and, in the process, give the Bluetooth speaker a long service lifetime.

For easy use and control, the ROCKTECH Wireless Bluetooth Speaker has top-panel control buttons for Bluetooth pairing, volume, power and answer operations with just one touch. It also has a built-in microphone that makes it possible for the speaker to be used as a speakerphone for hands-free calls.

Furthermore, the device can run as long as 12 hours straight when fully charged with the help of its built-in rechargeable 3600 mAh lithium ion 3.7V battery. When you have to go outdoors, you do not need to look for charging wires and power outputs to keep the Bluetooth speaker playing.

As for the sound output of the ROCKTECH Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, the 3W x 2 total power system allows the speaker to create bold sonic output. In addition, the speaker has a carabineer clip that facilitates the attachment of the speaker to clothing or bags.

Finally, for all the features you can enjoy when using the Bluetooth speaker, the device itself can be purchased at a relatively affordable price. This is an advantage for those who really need a wireless Bluetooth speaker but cannot afford to buy something so expensive.

Disadvantages

It should be noted that although the ROCKTECH Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is water resistant, it is not totally waterproof so it cannot be submerged into water and come out still functioning. It has the capacity to withstand exposure to accidental water or liquid splashes but not enough to counter the destructive effect of full-on water exposure.

Furthermore, there are reports that the speaker does not look as durable as it looks and it is not made to be heavy duty so it should be handled carefully when taken for outdoor excursions.

Also, there is a minor issue when the battery of the device runs low. There is a voice that cuts off the audio every two minutes or so stating the battery is low even when it is being charged. It only stops when the speaker is charged enough. In addition, there are reports that the when the device is subjected to full volume, some of the audio or sounds produced are distorted.

Verdict

The ROCKTECH Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is a product you can recommend to your friends. You get a reliable, water resistant and dust proof portable speaker at a relatively affordable price. This is a smart buy for first timers who want to get a shot at owning a wireless Bluetooth speaker.

I'm Jenny. I moved to rainy Ireland several years ago and I had to learn how to be prepared for the constant spring/fall that is the weather on the Emerald Isle. If you're always cold, always miserable because of the rain, maybe it's not the weather at fault (all the time 😀 ). A wise man once told me that there's no bad weather, just bad clothes. So I acted accordingly 🙂
