Pick the perfect speaker
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows two devices to communicate without a Wi-Fi connection. You can pair any Bluetooth-enabled device (a smartphone, a tablet, etc.) with these portable speakers for sound playback.
A smart speaker is a Wi-Fi connected speaker that’s controlled with voice commands, making it hands-free. To start, speak a trigger phrase like "Hey, Siri" or "OK, Google" or "Alexa" and then ask a question or make a request.
There’s a big difference between water-resistant and waterproof speakers. Water-resistant (IPX6 or below) can withstand splashes or rain, but can’t be submerged. Waterproof (IPX7+) can be submerged in a limited depth for a limited time.
