Having a sleek design and a very powerful sound quality, the BassPal SoundRo portable Bluetooth speaker can be used anywhere. This way, you will not have to endanger your phone each time you want to listen to your favorite song.

Features and Design
Featuring a rounded design, the BassPal SoundRo can lay flat and stable on any type of surface. Furthermore, thanks to the sleek black design, the SoundRo will fit nearly any type of environment and décor. It will look elegant while it’s “shooting” sound in every direction.
Featuring a wireless, Bluetooth 4.2 connection, as well as a 3.5mm AUX cable connection, this speaker can be connected to any kind of device. It has a fairly large wireless range that can go as far as 30 meters – and if your device does not support Bluetooth, you can use the cable or a Micro SD card.
While this may not be a speaker that you can fully dip into the water (It is rated IPX5. It would have to be an IPX7 or IPX8 for you to do that), it is still highly water resistant. This means that if you splash water on it, the unit will not be damaged as long as you wipe it off relatively soon (for example, as you get out of the shower).
The device is portable and its rounded design makes it very easy to carry anywhere. You can throw it into a backpack and take it with you anywhere you want – no matter if you have a power source nearby or not. It’s a great option if you want to take the SoundRo for an outdoor party.
The components from which these speakers were made are durable and fairly shockproof – so the unit will not be damaged if you accidentally drop it on the floor. However, it is not indestructible; so you may want to be careful when handling the unit, and not smash it on walls or floors because “it won’t break.”
The quality of the sound is really jaw-dropping, considering that you will hear the music in stereo “format”. You have 2 6W drivers, which brings the total amount of power to 12W.
The sound can be very loud but still good, with a very good amount of bass. The music will always be pulsating and rich.
Regardless of the environment you are in (pool parties, camping trips, or the shower), the sound will be deep enough to make you feel as if you are right next to the singer.
These speakers are advertised to last for as long as 24 hours. They can last a whole day of music – even more if you turn the unit off every now and again. It lasts longer than the average speaker – which generally stops after 6 to 8 hours.
The battery is also rechargeable, so you will not have to purchase a new one every time the old one runs out. You can just plug it in the adapter in the evening and you can use it the next day. Maybe one day the battery will be solar-powered?
Ease of Setup
The BassPal SoundRo speaker arrives already installed – so all you have to do is basically turn it on. The buttons are intuitively-designed and are all at the same place so that you can control the speaker with ease. You may adjust the volume, change the track, play, or pause a song without any problems.
The Bluetooth is also easily connected, most of it being done automatically.
Pros and Cons
The SoundRo is a great water and shock resistant unit that has received many positive reviews – but it also has its drawbacks. To make an informed purchase, you will want to know as much as possible about the product.
Some users have complained about a flat sound, but the sound quality depends on everyone’s taste, so the best thing is to try it and judge for yourself…
As you can see, the BassPal SoundRo portable Bluetooth speaker is a fairly convenient item to have around when you want to listen to your favorite music with a great, bass-rich sound.
While you may not want to submerge it in the water and leave it there, it will still prove resistant if water splashes over it. You will not have to wipe it like crazy after every drop.
The quality is top notch, with sturdy construction, and a sound quality that will make every party pop. Considering the price that it’s sold at, we would say that it is a fairly adequate purchase.Buy on Amazon
