Both the pool and the beach are officially open. You could listen to the horrible music provided by your fellow sun-worshipper or you can make your own melodies using the Soundcast Melody.
The Melody is a new omni-directional Bluetooth wireless speaker. Weighing just 9 pounds, it’s compact enough to hit the beach or accompany you to the pool. Also, because it has that Bluetooth, you can stream music wirelessly right to the speaker, from any smartphone, tablet or PC.
Even better, you don’t have to worry about water or sand stopping the music. The Melody has a water- and UV-resistant, all-weather plastic enclosure. It also has four bass radiators and four high performance full-range speakers to belt out 360 degrees of sound.
Other features include a sturdy handle, a 3.5mm input, and a rechargeable battery that promises up to 20 hours or playtime. It comes packing an AC adapter, a 12-volt car adapter, and a USB charging cable.
Soundcast is selling the Melody in the U.S. now, with an MSRP of $449. The company plans to make the speaker available to international audiences sometime next month.
