As a parent, we always want to get products that are high quality, but worry about accidents around our kids. I know we have a very very expensive bluetooth speaker that I’m afraid for Goose to even touch.
The AYL Soundfit speaker really offers all that my very very expensive speaker offers, but in a smaller package and with a few extra features I love.
First off, what the AYL SoundFit speaker offers…
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Waterproof for accidental drops in water or for shower use
- Ability to answer calls
- 33ft working distance
The waterproof/shockproof features is what really interested me in the product. As a mom of a preschooler, I know spills and drops happen…a lot… and I have to say that the AYL SoundFit has stood up to the test. I’ve even started taking the speaker in the shower so that I can listen to a little de-stressing music (thanks Foster The People) while I am showering.
The sound quality of the speaker is pretty great too. I don’t have a way to really test the sound, so what we did was turn the speaker on and played some music. When we went into another room, we would see how good it sounded. The AYL Soundfit, still sounded awesome a few rooms away.
There is one thing that really annoyed me about the AYL SoundFit speaker. It starts off at FULL volume!! Also the start up/shut down sounds are really really loud too. Normally when I shower, Goose has just gone to bed, and her room is right beside my bathroom, so I try to be as quiet as I can; when this speaker’s sound effects are super loud, that makes things a little difficult for me. I’ve started hiding the speaker in the towels to turn it on, and then turn it down right away. Of course when you reach the lowest volume setting, it plays a super loud beep, beep, beep to let you know. Also a little annoying.
Overall, this is a pretty good speaker. I hope that in future versions and models they do away with the loud sound effects and maybe have the speaker start out of half volume.
If you are interested in purchasing the AYL Soundfit Bluetooth Speaker, you can find them on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B014VJD6PQ Right now (as of 11/3/15) the price is about $30, which is really not bad for what you get. Well worth the cost.
