Good Vibrations

You're out enjoying a beautiful day at the beach. Swimmers are off bobbing in the waves, while, closer in, children splash in the foam and build sand castles. You sit propped on your towel, dreamily taking it all in--but something is still missing. A day at the beach just isn't complete without the right musical soundtrack.

The Beach Sounds portable sound system means that you can now rock out at the beach without fear of getting water or sandy grit into your electronics. With its sunshiny colors and retro styling, this amplified speaker set has a water resistant body in which you can conceal your MP3 player, smartphones or Walkman. Inside, foam rubber and a Velcro strap protect your electronics from being jostled around. The audio jack fits most standard media players, and can be threaded through a pluggable hole in the back for external input. There’s even a built-in FM/AM tuner, so you can catch some radio waves. Made in China.

      Comments about BEACH SOUNDS PORTABLE SPEAKER:

      Got this as a gift and I love this speaker system. People smile at it. It plays and protects my MP3. I have a few boom boxes before this and they stopped working because of the sand. This Great speaker system never gave me a problem, and never failed me. The reviewer that talked about static - I changed the batteries and it worked perfect. I have had it now 3 Beach seasons and besides fading, it still works perfectly. GREAT toy - thanks!!!!!

      Comments about BEACH SOUNDS PORTABLE SPEAKER:

      I bought 3 of these last year. Two of them are for two young ladies going to college - they were thrilled to see these cute little boomboxes. It was too cute and I had to get one for myself. I went to the beach twice last year, took it with me, super fun to walk with music on (very light), stick it in the sand, etc. However, when I took it out of the box today after one year, I started to get super horrible static. Radio is completely not working, iPod plays with this unbearable noise. I'm very disappointed. It is also a little awkward to work with it. After you close the box, you really lose access to the iPod other than being able to adjust volume on the speaker itself. You will have to pick your playlist and leave it - the 3 plastic flaps that lock the box don't look like they will last a long time so I'd try not to open/close too many times to change the anything on the iPod. As much as I love it when it's working, I really don't know if this is a good product to keep ...

              Comments about BEACH SOUNDS PORTABLE SPEAKER:

              My daughter pointed this out and suggested it would be good to protect her phone at the beach or by the pool. I was skeptical but since I had a gift card I decided to order it. It is FANTASTIC. Perfect for listening to a podcast outdoors while I am in the garden... and very well designed. You can put your phone inside or leave it outside. Speakers are loud and clear. Very happy and would totally recommend!!

                Comments about BEACH SOUNDS PORTABLE SPEAKER:

                I like: the quirky retro look, sand & water resistant, sound is good, doesn't take up much space in my beach bag, light weight, can use with my iPhone, iPod OR radio, can hang it from the handle on beach umbrella with a small bungee. My only concern is the audio cord may get damaged when closing the case, so I was proactive and taped it down with a small piece of duct tape. I am VERY happy with this purchase.

                    The speakers gave out a terrible buzzing sound. The radio reception on the beach was terrible and when we tried to hook it up to our phones, we were so annoyed by the feedback, that we didnt even want it on. the only thing it did well was hold down the corner of our blanket.
