Soundcast VG1

This week’s 9to5Rewards partner is Soundcast and its VG1 waterproof Bluetooth speaker we recently reviewed over at 9to5Mac. 

The company has two of its new VG1 waterproof Bluetooth speakers (Normally $149) to give away to 9to5Mac and 9to5Google readers this week. 

While the Soundcast VG1 speaker’s big differentiator is a waterproof IP67 rating, meaning it’s more than fine to be completely submerged in water up to 3.3 feet (Soundcast claims it can survive 10 feet), we found that it also packed into some respectable sound quality for the price tag in our recent review:

…for a standalone, battery-powered portable speaker, it’s really, really good… If you care about sound quality, but still want something that’s both portable and affordable, the VG1 is well worth checking out.

The specs:

  • Light, 1 lb. weight allows for ultimate portability
  • Premium 2” aluminum-cone drivers and rear-firing weighted bass radiator for deep and crisp, full-range sound
  • Waterproof IP67 rating allows for total submersion in up to 3.3 feet of water and full protection against dust
  • Built-in microphone for conference call and works with Siri for hands-free control
  • Playback High Def via 3.5mm or Stream Bluetooth with aptX and AAC codecs
  • Auto Bluetooth pairing seamlessly connects two VG1 units for True Wireless Stereo configuration
  • On-Board play, pause and volume controls for ease of navigation
  • Bluetooth 4.2 with room to remember up to six devices, up to 30 feet
  • Built-in rechargeable battery for up to 15 hours of playback
