Scosche BoomBottle review

This tough, long-lasting speaker is your perfect companion if you can't get enough of the great outdoors


Using the BoomBottle is a much safer alternative to the reckless practice of cycling with headphones on. It’s loud enough to be audible without drowning out the sound of your surroundings, although on a fast downhill section, you’ll find that the wind drowns out the speaker. The BoomBottle is worth having even if you never go near a bike. Its sturdy, shock-absorbing design makes it well-suited to all kinds of high-impact activity, so it’s a good option for campers and festival-goers, too, while its practical shape will fit into the water bottle holder found on many backpacks.

Scosche BoomBottle

The speaker’s battery life is truly astonishing. It clocked up an unprecedented 33h 24m in our continuous audio playback test. In combination with the BoomBottle’s tough but surprisingly lightweight design, that makes this our first choice for an outdoor speaker.

If, on the other hand, you do most of your listening around the home, Cambridge Audio Minx Go is less resilient but sounds better.
