Grace Digital Ecoxgear Ecorox Bluetooth speaker

The Good The Grace Digital Ecoxgear Ecorox mini Bluetooth speaker is very compact and fully waterproof, and has built-in speakerphone capabilities. It also offers good battery life.

The Bad Bit pricey for how it sounds; tends to distort at higher volumes with bass-heavy material; vibrates at higher volumes and will move around on smooth surfaces.

The Bottom Line The Ecorox is a decent-enough little speaker that has the added benefit of being waterproof, making it a good choice for use in the shower. But it could sound better for its price.

Review

A mini waterproof speaker that floats

With the introduction of its Ecoxgear line, Grace Digital has quickly made a name for itself in the waterproof portable mini Bluetooth speaker arena. I previously reviewed the Ecoxgear Ecoxbt, and while I thought its name was poorly rendered, I considered it a good deal, though its price has risen since I gave it a positive review.

The Ecorox is the Ecoxbt's little brother and its shape is very reminiscent of such speakers as the $99 UE Mobile Boombox. However, the Ecorox is truly waterproof and can be fully submerged in water, making it a particularly good shower speaker. It also can be mounted on a bike with an optional accessory, it has speakerphone capabilities and decent battery life, and, like a lot of these tiny Bluetooth speakers, it plays bigger than its size would indicate. My only problem with it is that at $129, it's pretty pricey for what it is, and it just can't handle bass-heavy material, distorting at higher volumes.

Design and features
Design is one of the Ecorox's strong points. For starters, it's a better-looking speaker than the larger Ecoxbt, and is obviously very compact, weighing 11 ounces and measuring 5.3 inches wide, 2.5 inches high, and 3 inches deep.
