The Turtle Shell 3.0 is a waterproof wireless speaker that is tough enough to survive virtually any casual damage it might be exposed to. The device floats, is waterproof when submerged by up to a metre anyway and will just bounce if you drop it. Taylor Toussaint, who works on the product, explains the benefits of such a tough speaker.
Taylor, what are some of the benefits of a waterproof speaker?
Having a waterproof speaker means you don’t have to worry about splashing, spills, rain, showers, or any other liquid accidents. We made a speaker that you don’t have to worry about breaking. So now, you can just have fun and relax.
How does it connect to a music device?
The Turtle Shell 3.0 uses Bluetooth to connect to devices. Phones, laptop computers, and desktop computers that have Bluetooth can stream audio to the device.
Does the waterproofing impact the battery life of the speaker?
No, the waterproof features have no impact on battery life at all. The rechargeable battery is safe and secure.
Does it have other protection apart from being waterproof?
The speaker is tough and rugged. It can be dropped, stepped on, and banged up. We like to make things that can go anywhere you go.
How much range does the Bluetooth connection have?
The Bluetooth range is 32 feet (just under 10 meters). So you don’t have to be next to your phone or laptop to stream music to the wireless speaker.
How waterproof is the speaker? If it was knocked into a pool, for example, would it survive?
The IPX7 waterproof rating means the Turtle Shell 3.0 is fully waterproof. It can be submerged up to 1 metre for 30 minutes and still work perfectly. The speaker also floats so it will not sink if you drop it in a lake or the ocean.
Are you looking at any improvements for the next Turtle Shell model?
We have a few ideas for the next generation but a new model won’t be coming for a few years. The Turtle Shell 3.0 is a solid speaker that everyone loves.
