Aquatune 5712 Review: Summer is Coming, You’ll Want this Waterproof Speaker

This wireless speaker will bring your tunes to the beach and pool this summer.

Bring your music everywhere you go this summer with the Aquatune 5712, a waterproof, wireless speaker that can be submerged in water for up to half an hour.

Aquatune 5712 Review

Price and Where to Buy the Aquatune 5712: $39.99 on Amazon.

How the Aquatune 5712 Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. We don’t recommend that you be that annoying person at the beach that plays music that bothers everyone around them, but if you’re headed to a secluded beach, boat party, or pool, the speaker is great.
  • Value: 9/10. For less than $40, this is a great price for a waterproof and wireless speaker.
  • Durability: 10/10. You can submerge the speaker in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. The circular design is easy to use and unobtrusive, and being the one to bring music to a party is always cool.

Final Verdict: If you want to play your music outdoors, you need the Aquatune 5712.
