Waterproof Wireless Speakers

waterproof wireless bluetooth speakersWe are assuming you are looking for waterproof wireless speakers and not water resistant. The speakers mentioned below are engineered to be able to handle a wet environment as being outdoors on the go often includes getting wet. Some speakers can handle being dropped in the water, being outside in the rain, or even float. They are shock proof, dust, sand and dirt proof, and they are made to take a tumble or two.

Some of these models you might also include in the best portable wireless speakers list as they are indeed portable. They come with some nice features, are engineered not only to withstand the elements, but have to have loud beautiful sounding music.

What is a waterproof wireless speaker-The IP Ratings

You may have seen the IP ratings given for various speaker models. IP stands for International Protection rating.

So you see IP then a number like IP56:

  •  First number indicates level of protection from solids or materials like dust or sand (0-6) 6 is most protected
  • Second number indicates protection from liquids-water (0-8) 8 is most protected
  • Third digit, if one is used is protection against mechanical impacts (0-6)  6 is most protected

You may see an X in the place of a number if the device is not rated for liquid or dirt, like IPX7. This means it is not rated for dust, but is for water.

When it comes to water the rating scale is IPX0 to IPX8. The o rating means zero protection from water, not even a teardrop and the 8 rating means max water protected, continual water submersion.

For a speaker to be totally waterproof and survive even the wettest of outdoor environments they should be a IPX7 that is water immersion for 30 min up to 1 meter.

The IPX6 rating is protection from a high pressure water stream from any angle

IPX5 rating is low pressure water stream from any angle

IPX4 rating is protection against splashing

If your speaker model has a water rating only you will see the rating as IPX5 and the X is a place holder for the dust rating. If the speaker had a rating of IP65 that would indicate a dustproof rating in addition to the water rating.

In some cases you may see a third digit and that is to show the rating for protection against mechanical impacts from 0-6 This would be the shockproof rating when discussing a speaker. Seeing the 6 would indicate the highest rating.

So you really want to see at least a IP65 rating, and for the most protection a IP67 rating to really be considered waterproof. Remember for waterproof we are looking at the second number, the first number is just an added dustproof rating, which is great sand protection for those examples, and sure if it has a 6 dust proof rating that is even better protection from the elements!
