AYL Soundfit Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker Review

ayl soundfit

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
  • X-Base
  • Dust-proof
  • shock-proof

AYL SoundFitThe 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.

AYL SoundFitThe 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.

Cranberry Baby Diaper Bag Review

Cranberry Baby Diaper Bag

 

One thing you learn soon after you have a baby is, for as little of a person they are, they really require a lot of crap when you leave the house.  I was honestly very surprised how much stuff we had to take with us when we took Goose anywhere, and she was a breastfed baby!  I couldn’t imagine having to cart around formula, bottles, and water for formula fed babies.

I absolutely hated our diaper bag too.  It was so hard to find anything in.  The bag was deep, but really narrow. When Goose was about 3 months old, I ditched that one, and carried the backpack I used in high school.

Cranberry Baby Diaper Bag Review

Recently, I got to try the Cranberry Baby diaper bag.  I really do wish I had known about these diaper bags when Goose was born.  I love this bag.

First of all, I love that the bag comes with 4 pieces.  You have the main big bag, two smaller bags that could be used for a wet/dry bag or bottles.  You also have the changing pad. When Goose was a baby, I didn’t use a changing pad, just a blanket, only because I hated trying to pull the changing pad out and then trying to put it back in.  This one is a lot nicer than the one I had, and I think I would use this one.

Another thing I like on the Cranberry Baby diaper bag is the fact you have 8 pockets and two zipper pockets to hold all of the baby stuff.  The main compartment has a zipper too which is really nice, but I’ve not used it since I’ve been using this bag.

When you have a baby, it really matters how much stuff you can take with you.  In the Cranberry Baby diaper bag, I was able to put the following: 3 onsies NB pjs, 3 pairs of NB pans, 4 NB shirts, 9 hemp/microfiber diaper inserts, 4 prefolds, 4 cloth diapers, and ring sling. Plus the bags and changing pad that came with the diaper bag.  I was very impressed.  I probably could have fit more too if I had organized it a little better.

Overall, I have loved carrying this bag.  I have loved the super cute leopard print and leather accents.  I’ve actually been using it as a computer case to carry my 13″ laptop. It has worked great, and I have places inside the bag for the power cord and all the accessories.

If you would like to purchase your very own Cranberry Baby diaper bag, you can find them on Amazon.  The current price is $34 (PRIME!!!), which I think is less than what we paid for the crapy one that we had when Goose was born, and I like the Cranberry Baby one a ton better.
