Expert Review

Pyle doesn't release many products targeted at mainstream consumers, but when they do, they get it right. The Surf Sound sports a great combination of sound, size, and durability that help any user take full advantage of its waterproofing: its ideal for use in the shower for taking calls on a busy morning, or perhaps just hearing a few tunes, and Im sure it will see quite a bit of poolside use as well. The Surf Sound thankfully avoids the radio-like sounds of so many similar speakers: it has a healthy dose of bass, albeit not quite as much as the Oontz XL, and can play louder than I think anyone would need in the shower.

The one big downside to the Surf Sound is that it is powered only by batteries. Personally I find this an odd choice for a waterproof product, but it seems to work. Unfortunately it chews through batteries like nobodys business, and you will wind up spending quite a bit more this way than on non-waterproof options that sport AC or USB charging. Despite this one shortcoming, the Surf Sound is still the best option for anyone looking for a fully waterproof speaker. It isnt designed to play fully underwater, but it can handle full submersion, and overall it sounds decent and plays fairly loud. If it gets splashed or dropped in the pool, no big deal; just pull it out and dry it off, and it will keep providing you with tunes...until the batteries die!Rating: 4.25/5
