*I was not paid for this review! I received this product free of charge for my honest opinion!
Me and my husband are constantly working outside doing projects on the weekend and we just have to have music while we do stuff. We live in a small town and the local radio stations only play country music from the 60's. I mean seriously, who even listens to some of that stuff anymore? It can be horrible and we end up just turning off the radio and working in silence rather than listen to some of that stuff. Don't get me wrong, we love country music- just not the slow big band opera song type they always play. Sometimes we just need to jam out to get the job done if you know what I mean. AYL makes a portable waterproof speaker that easily connects to our phones with Bluetooth and we can finally jam out!
They AYL portable speaker is very small and compact and well....cute! It only measures 3.5" x 3.5" x 1.5" and comes with a nice mesh type carrying bag. It can very easily fir into a purse or other bag so you can take it with you anywhere without it taking up too much space. It also has a nice silicone handle that you can use to easily carry it around or to hang somewhere. The speaker is very cute and attractive and I absolutely love the blue color that it came in. Also included with the speaker was a USB charging cable, and aux in cable and a short instruction manual. This powerful little speaker easily charges off a USB cable and I even plugged it into my phone charger and it charged just fine. No more worrying about changing out expensive batteries! You can listen up to 12 hours off of one charge! I simply plugged the USB cable into my computer and in less than an hour it was fully charged. While it's charging, a small orange light came on. The speaker easily paired with my phone in just a few seconds, it came up under "SoundFit". It makes a cute little chime when it connects and it's ready to go.
When I played my first song on it, I was surprised with how great the sound quality was! It sounded just as good as my 60" soundbar that I have and actually played bass really good. On top of the speaker is volume buttons, a power button and a play/pause button so you can control it from there or though your phone. It has a very versatile range of up to 33 feet, so you can put it somewhere and be pretty far away with your phone and still control it easily. I'm very happy that it's waterproof as well just in case it starts raining while we're outside I don't have to have a heart attack if it gets a little wet. I wasn't actually brave enough to throw it in a bucket of water, but the instructions suggest to let it drain fully if it gets wet. The speaker itself seems very durable and can definitely be dropped and roughed up a bit without any damage occurring. This speaker is absolutely awesome with incredible sound quality! I can't wait to take it camping!
