Whether you need your daily dose of EDM to motivate you in the shower or the soothing companionship of NPR in your canoe, there are plenty of water-based places that cry out for audio entertainment. The UE Roll from Ultimate Ears promises great 360-degree sound in a waterproof, shockproof, and “life-resistant” package.
At $100, this waterproof Bluetooth speaker is replacing the Mini Boom UE’s lineup, and it’s meant to be even more portable. The built-in bungee cord loop is perfect for attaching the speaker to a shower head, and no matter how much water is spraying you in the face, you won’t be able to miss the big plus and minus volume controls embroidered onto the acoustic fabric. There’s 9 hours of battery life and with online orders from UE.com, a blow-up pool float to tuck your Roll into in the pool. [Purchase]
