Introducing the BassPal Waterproof Speaker Radio
The BassPal Bluetooth speaker is a great thing to have around if you love listening to music in the shower or need something to liven up a pool party. Perhaps the most important quality of the BassPal is its IPX7 waterproof rating. Not only can this unit be taken with you in watery and steamy areas, but it can also float or be fully submerged in the water as well.
This speaker is so powerful and well-protected that you can submerge it in waters going over three feet in depth, resisting for up to 30 minutes before you have to pull it out. As a result, it will function perfectly as a shower speaker – or an overall floating speaker – and you may take it with you in all types of water environments.
Plus, the BassPal has been equipped with a versatile suction cup. When you do not want the unit to float over the water, you can stick it to any kind of slick surface (such as a shower hall or a pool deck). This way, it will not be getting in your way as you are minding your business – not will you have to go diving for it once you are done.
Its waterproof abilities are fairly durable, and the device in itself promises a very long life. However, for an increased lifespan, you may want to dry it after every use – especially if you had it submerged in water.

Exceptional Audio Quality
When we are listening to the radio, one of the things that matter the most is the quality of the sound. It needs to be clear, and most importantly, it needs to be loud. With its 5W driver, the room will be filled with sound in no time. The bass is strong and deep, maintaining a good “vibe” in the room.
The advantage of the BassPal speaker is that it can not only read every radio frequency in your area, but you can also connect it to your smartphone or iPod via Bluetooth, and it will blast the sounds in a clear manner. Furthermore, thanks to its long-lasting battery, you can also use it for a fairly long time before it requires recharging.
If you want to connect it to your phone, however, you may not be able to take this unit with you. The Bluetooth range only reaches 33 feet – so if you want to take it further than that, it’s virtually unusable. The radio will work – but to connect it to a device, you’ll have to make sure it stays close.
This unit was equipped with LED mood lights that go off in synch with the music. If you (or your pool party) feel like you need a bit of color and funk in your life, you can turn the lights on. Obviously, if you prefer to only have the sounds, you can also opt for disabling the LED lights.
Pros & Cons
To make things easier, we noted down some pros and cons for you:
- IPX7 waterproof rating – This rating proves high-resistance for water, meaning that you can submerge it as deep as three feet in the water. The device will easily withstand 30 minutes of underwater sound.
- Floating device – If you take the party to the pool or anywhere else, you can leave the device in the pool. Its surface will make it floatable, so you will always have the sound close.
- Suction cup – If you do not want your unit to float, you can use the suction cup to attach it to a wall. This way, it will stay in place, away from heavy water splashes.
- LED mood lights – these offer some “funk” to the unit’s design, and you may choose the colors that you want to show. You may also choose to turn them off if you wish.
- 33-feet range – If the party is held outdoors and you need to cover a wider range, 33 feet may not be enough for you. If the phone or laptop is too far, it will not connect via Bluetooth.
- Needs drying – The unit in itself is durable; however, if you want your unit to last, you will have to dry it after every use.
Overall Rating: 8.7/10
Verdict on the BassPal Bluetooth Speaker Radio
If you can get past the fact that the Bluetooth range is only 33 feet, then the BassPal speaker is definitely the one for you. You can use the BassPal in the shower, in the pool, on the beach, or in any environment that’s surrounded by water. Just make sure to wipe it dry after every use in order to preserve its longevity.
