The Ultra Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
Music on the golf course seems to be an ongoing trend these days, and wireless speakers are the driving force. If you haven’t tried it, don’t knock it. I’m not suggesting playing music so loud and obnoxious that it would disturb others on the course but something that is relaxing and easy to listen to. For most people, once you’ve played with the music on, you will find it deafeningly quiet when it is turned off. If you don’t believe me, next time you play try, pulling out your smart phone and play some of your favorite tunes for a hole or two, then turn it off. Odds are, you’ll turn it back on in a hurry.
Adding a portable wireless Bluetooth speaker only makes it better. While most phones are capable of playing the tunes, the quality of the built-in speaker isn’t the same that an external speaker can provide.
The first time I played with someone that had music streaming from the golf cart, I was hooked. We had a very high end speaker sitting on the cart wedged up against the wind shield, but it was a constant battle to keep the speaker from sliding off and onto the floor or onto the ground. Then it started to drizzle, so we had to grab the speaker and put it inside the cart. As much as I was enjoying the music, I thought – this is just too much work, I’ve got to find a speaker, but I need something easier than this and less expensive.
After searching and trying out many different speakers, I came across the Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle PLUS at the PGA Merchandise show in Orlando. The first thing that got my attention was the design. Best described as a long or wide triangle, that easily fits on the dashboard of a golf cart. Water resistant and works just fine in the rain. I know this for a fact, because I intentionally tried it on the roof of the golf cart during a downpour, just to see how it would hold up. It is still working just fine several weeks after my rain test.
The battery will last longer than your phone and the quality of the sound is great. I’m sure the sound quality out of some of the $200 speakers may be better, but for the average ear, the sound is plenty good.
All of this and with a retail price of $50, I knew I had to try one out.
