Is the EcoBoulder waterproof & can the EcoBoulder be used in water?
YES. The EcoBoulder meets the IPX7 waterproof standard. The EcoBoulder can be used in the pool, the hot tub and the ocean without issues. Batten down the hatches and play your tunes worry free! Plus, the EcoBoulder floats! (Be careful, the charging caps and waterproof compartment must be closed properly to keep the EcoBoulder watertight.)
What is IPX7?
The IPX7 Waterproof Standard means that the product is protected against water immersion. ECOXGEAR tests all their products by submerging them in AT LEAST 3 feet of water. This means that our products, including the EcoBoulder can withstand use in the water. Be careful of other products that claim to be waterproof but are only IPX5 or less. They will leak and sink to the bottom of the pool under the fun conditions above.
Does the EcoBoulder work with any Bluetooth enabled Device?
The EcoBoulder waterproof speaker connects to any device that uses Bluetooth connectivity for audio. Laptops, Desktops, Tablets and Smartphones are all compatible! All Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices are sure to be compatible.
How far can the EcoBoulder be away from my Bluetooth device?
The connectivity for the EcoBoulder is designed and tested to far exceed 30 feet (up to 100ft) from your Bluetooth device. Walls, leaded glass windows and metal studs inside the drywall will affect the range operation.
The sound is distorted, how can it be improved?
Try lowering the volume control of your connected device or musical instrument. Also, try to reduce the overall volume of the EcoBoulder.

To adjust AM/FM reception, move entire product. To improve FM reception, do not use USB charging ports and unplug from AC power.
Water is draining from bottom of unit, should I be concerned?
