AYL Portable Bluetooth Outdoor/Waterproof Speaker Review

I've wanted a speaker I could use in my shower for a while now, so I jumped at the chance to review the AYL Portable Bluetooth Outdoor/Waterproof Speaker. Turns out, I'm not the only one who thought this sounded like an awesome speaker since it turns out my parents bought me the exact same one as a gift. The one in the photos is actually the one my mother bought me, but since I also received a free one to review, I'm just adding that disclaimer as well. Here's more about the speaker and my review:

**AYL Soundfit features 5-watt audio for stronger bass and higher quality sound. Perfect for sports, travel, cycling, climbing, camping, hiking, running, fishing use.

**Quick & easy to pair using Bluetooth V4.0. The wireless speaker’s outdoor & shower range is 33 feet.

**Provide up to 12 hours of endless music. Plus, the speaker can be recharged in just 3 hours with the included Micro USB cable.

** Waterproof level IPX5- Protected against low pressure water stream from any angle. Not submersible, but should withstand accidental drop in water. Guaranteed that it will stay safe in the shower, in the rain, by the pool or on a boat. We build our water-resistant speaker extra tough to ensure that it can be safely carried anywhere life's adventures take you!

My Review:
4 stars

This is a great shower speaker. Even my roommate keeps "borrowing" it when she showers because she loves it so much.

Using the speaker is super easy. All you have to do is turn it on, connect the Bluetooth and you're good to go! The speaker boops when it turns on (plus there is a light that lets you know whether it's on or off), and boops when you connect your device, so you know you are connected.

The sound is great, and the volume is easy to adjust, which I love since I listen to a wide variety of songs and the sound level varies greatly from song to song. So not having to get out of my shower to change the volume is awesome. I also like the fact that I can leave my Kindle in my bedroom, close the door to both my bedroom and my bathroom, and the speaker still works just fine. Plus, if you are using your phone, you can use the speaker to take a call. You can switch from your music to a call and then back with the push of a button.

The only downside to this is that there is no way to skip or go back to a song. With everything else this speaker can do, why it can't do such a simple action is beyond me.

*I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review.*
