If you’re looking for an affordable, yet good quality waterproof Bluetooth speaker, then you came to the right place. Today, we are going to take a look at the Tronsmart Element Splash IP67 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker.
Last month I released my review of the Tronsmart Element T2 Bluetooth Speaker and it literally blew my mind in terms of how powerful it is in such a small form factor, now, let see how its little brother(s) holds up with an even more smaller footprint.
MY EARLY BREAKDOWN
Pros: Affordable, Good build quality, Nifty true wireless stereo feature, Decent audio
Model: Element Splash
WHAT’S IN THE PACKAGE
1 x Bluetooth speaker, 1 x Micro USB charging cable, 1 x Carabiner, 1 x User manual, 1 x Warranty card
Design and Construction
In terms of design, we have two variants here, one is this nice blue camouflage design that we don’t see very often, but is a very well appreciated option.
In terms of construction, both are solidly built made of hard plastic material with rubber coating on the side. It also has a nice weight to it partnered with a rubber lining at the bottom to keep it in place during vibration while playing music.
Both of these weighs roughly around 207g with a diameter of 10cm.
Up top, we have the buttons for control which functions as follows:
Bluetooth Pairing and Connectivity
Just like the Tronsmart Element T2, pairing the Tronsmart Element Splash to your device is pretty straightforward. Just power on the speaker by pushing the power button for three seconds and it will automatically go to pairing mode.
True Wireless Stereo Feature
One of the main features of Tronsmart Speakers is that they support TWS or True Wireless Stereo mode. Basically, you can use two TWS compatible Bluetooth speakers, pair them together to work in stereo mode.
We have no complaints when it comes to the built-in microphone, it does its job quite well for casual communications. My wife said that my voice was clear and hers was actually crispy as well on this speaker.
In terms of battery life, as per Tronsmart’s official specifications, it can last up to 10 hours working time, and that, of course, depends on many factors such as volume level and quality of the connection. As per my testing, it lasted for about 8 hours on continuous music playback for around 60%-70% volume or 3-4 clicks below max while being connected to my laptop.
IP67 Dust and Waterproof
The Tronsmart Element Splash is rated IP67, which means it is protected from dust and can be splashed with water as well as being submerged up to 1m.
When it comes to sound quality, which is probably at the top of your priority when looking for a speaker, the Tronsmart Element Splash is actually very decent for its size. It’s capable of producing recognizable mids and highs and the bass is definitely abundant but not too much that it muffles everything else.
Will I Recommend This!? Yes!
To conclude, at its current price of just a thousand pesos or 18US dollars, you’ll be hard pressed to get something better than this, considering the features, the small form factor, and the overall sound quality. Yes, you can probably get something cheaper than this but you’re definitely not getting the same quality materials the tronsmart element splash has. The only thing I miss on this is a 3.5mm aux port, other than that I think this is a really good value for your money.
