There’s a wide array of portable Bluetooth speakers on the market but not all are created equally, and you definitely get what you pay for. You could order a cheapo unknown brand from another E-tailer but buyer beware! The SoundBucket XL Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker ($199 at Best Buy) from Altec Lansing is my new favorite for portable sound that can last from dawn to dusk and beyond.
If your current Bluetooth speaker just isn’t cutting it and you’re looking to upgrade to one you can use all year round, here are 8 reasons to add the Altec Lansing SoundBucket XL Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker to your wish list.
8 Reasons to Upgrade Your Bluetooth Speaker to the SoundBucket XL from Altec Lansing
Sound from a Trusted Name in Audio
Since 1927, Altec Lansing has been connecting people to sound through innovative speaker designs. From allowing moviegoers to first hear actors’ voices, delivering music to 450,000 Woodstock attendees, and even being the official speaker system for the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Altec Lansing’s reputation speaks for itself through headphones, portable and home audio speakers, and accessories that deliver high quality sound through well-engineered products.
Sound from Dawn to Dusk and Beyond
When fully charged, th SoundBucket XL Waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker provides 20 whopping hours of battery life so you can enjoy time with your family in the great outdoors or with guests at your party without worrying the music might stop.
Great for Any Season
Waterproof? Check! Snowproof? Check! Dirtproof? Check! Rated IP67, the SoundBucket XL is built to withstand all the elements so feel free to bring it along on any camping trip, family vacation, backyard BBQ, or take it along on your winter road trip and park it outside your slopeside ski house to provide a soundtrack to fellow skiers as they enjoy their run.
Grab and Go for Portable Sound
Shaped like a bucket, the SoundBucket XL features a built in carry-handle to take your music along with you.
Just Ask it to Be Your DJ or Take Your Calls
With Siri and Hey Google voice assistant features via Bluetooth through your smartphone, the SoundBucket XL can queue up your playlist, answer pesky trivia questions no one seems to know, take or hold your calls, and remind you what you have going on tomorrow in case you are thinking of keeping the party going a little longer.
Charges Your Phone Wirelessly
Lighten your load and leave your portable charger behind because you can lay your Qi enabled device on top of the built-in Qi wireless charger or plug it in to your SoundBucket XL to keep it out of the red.
Pair with Your Friend’s SoundBucket XL for Bigger Sound
If you want surround sound for your next event, ask your friends with SoundBuckets to bring theirs. Your SoundBucket XL provides 360 degree music listening and when paired with up to 50 House Party enabled speakers simultaneously, you get even bigger sound.
With one touch pairing, you simply press and hold to pair your speaker with others and once you see the green flashing light, you’re ready to place SoundBuckets around the house, yard, pool, beach, lake, neighborhood, campsite, and even snow banks for surround sound that also features a down firing Subwoofer for bass booming sound. Wireless range is 100 feet so your party’s sound just got bigger and better!
Nothing says party like lights and SoundBucket XL features five LED Illuminating light modes!
