Design

Let us start with the design. Because of its classic look and black color, the speaker looks very stylish and cool. It also comes with a control panel and a small screen with blue numbers, which is easy to read. The control panel is simple to use, thanks to well-organized buttons. Every audiophile who loves the combination of simplicity and style will love this speaker as well. However, looks are not the be all, end all, right?

What makes this unit stand out from the rest is its sturdiness. Made of high-quality materials, and featuring a waterproof and dustproof coating, the speaker excels in durability. This is especially important if you plan to make a beach party, as sand or splashes of water can ruin your speaker’s performance which, obviously, will stop the party. Luckily, this guy can handle it all – water, sand, rain, dust… What’s more, it is submersible, so you can drop it in the lake or your pool and watch it floats. How awesome is that?

With dimensions of 11.3 x 15.5 x 19.8 inches and 27 pounds, this speaker would not be easy to transport. BUT, there is no reason to worry about that, since this speaker comes with a retractable handle and wheels. Thanks to that, you won’t have any issue to move the speaker from party to party.

In addition, the speaker comes with compartment storage, where you can place MIC or your phone; which is a handy little feature. Also, it comes with a USB charging port so that you can charge your phone.

Sound

As for the quality of sound, this speaker won’t deliver top notch sound, but it’s still a good choice for a smaller outdoor party or BBQ. Compared to other models of this size and price, this one does not impress us so much, when it comes to the sound quality.

It has 1000 watts of power, and 8 inches full range speaker, 8 inches passive subwoofer and 3 inches tweeter plus. Now, for those of you who are not so familiar with what is inside of the party speakers, here is an explanation. For example, some similar models have 200 watts of power and five active speakers, delivering full range sound, at a top quality.

As you can see, that is not the case with this model, as it has a full range speaker and a passive subwoofer. Therefore, its sound quality cannot be on a par with the best party speakers. This speaker delivers good (not great) sound quality, as the bass is little weak, and mids are not clear. In addition, the speaker sometimes does have distortion. However, you can clearly hear lows and highs even at maximum volume.

What you will appreciate is that the speaker comes with five preset EQ settings (default, heavy bass, jazz, rock, and heavy treble) to give a better listening experience and can connect to many Bluetooth enabled devices. For those of you who love radio, you will definitely appreciate that this unit has an integrated AM/FM radio.

What we love (and so will you) about this model is a MIC input. So, if you want to take the party to a new level and sing along with the crowd, just connect the MIC and you are good to go.

The Battery

Now, the sound quality may not be so great, but the battery life definitely is. The ECOBOULDER speaker comes with the battery that enables up to 10 hours of playtime, at maximum volume! This feature alone is enough to buy the speaker. In case you don’t want to run the speaker by way of using the battery, you can play it on classic AC wall power. Either way, the party won’t stop!

The Price

To sum up, the unit is very user-friendly, and portable. It offers a good quality sound and comes with long lasting battery, to keep the party going all night. And let’s not forget to mention the USB charging port and a compartment storage, which are very useful.  With all this in mind, the high price does not come as a surprise. However, considering that the sound is not top notch, the unit could have been a bit less expensive.

Pros:

  • Outstanding battery life
  • Easy to move
  • Stylish design
  • Easy to use
  • Comes with storage compartment
  • Sturdy and durable
  • Waterproof and dustproof
  • Submersible

Cons:

  • Price
  • The bass is weak
  • The mids are not clear
  • The Final Word

Conclusion

Well, that would be all there is to say about the ECOXGEAR GDI-EXBM901. We hope that you now can decide whether this speaker is something you would want to invest in. Overall, this speaker is a good choice for those who want good solid quality sound, excellent battery life, and easy-to-transport speaker and do not mind spending extra money in order to get it all.
