NUU Splash Is A Wireless Speaker That Doesn’t Mind Getting Wet [CES 2013]


Wireless speakers are often the best way to enjoy the music you have stored on your smartphone or tablet, but like other electronics, there are some places you wouldn’t want to take them — such as the beach or the lake. Filling them with sand and water will kill them incredibly quickly.

That’s not a worry with the NUU Splash, however, because it’s both dust and water resistant.

The Splash has an IP55 rating for dust and water resistance, so you don’t have to worry about it getting damaged “if you’re doing cannonballs into the pool, chilling with friends at the beach, or caught out in an unexpected rainstorm.” Splash will continue to play your tunes no matter how messy you get it.

It’ll continue to sound great, too. Its compact design doesn’t mean compromised sound quality, and the Splash feature two neodymium speaker drivers, combined with a passive bass radiator to provide crisp, clear, and balanced sound for music and voice. It also has a built-in microphone so you can take calls on it — isn’t that awesome?

The Splash is built with an aircraft-grade aluminum casing that’s durable and light, and it’ll connect to almost anything with a Bluetooth connection, including smartphones, tablets, media players, and notebook computers. It also has a auxiliary input for devices without a Bluetooth connection.

The Splash has a 10-meter Bluetooth range, and will provide you with up to 10 hours of playback or 240 hours of standby on one charge. Available in green, blue, grey, red and black, the Splash can be ordered from NUU now. It’s priced at $99.
