The Best Beats On The Beach: AQSTIX Wireless Speaker

My Specter AQSTIX Waterproof Wireless Speaker pretty much made our beach day during our trip to Barbados. My family packed up a cooler full of drinks and snacks and headed to the gorgeous Miami Beach (that’s right – there are two Miami Beaches in the world) for a day of fun in the sun and surf.

Miami Beach is one of the first stops we always make during our visits to my homeland. Located on the southern coast of the island, its calm waters near 82°F and running into the surf is like running  into bath water (which I love). This beach also features stunning sunset views which you can take in after a day of body surfing.

We decided to bring along my new AQSTIX Waterproof Wireless Speaker to test out its sound quality on the beach. We downloaded a bunch of beats by The Weeknd and some soca, dancehall and reggae and found a sunny spot to set up in the brilliant white sand that could double as icing sugar.

Well, this little unassuming speaker blew our minds!! The sound quality was huge and amazing! Crisp and clear, we bopped around to some Benni Benassi while we buried our poor cousin in the sand. We even took the speaker into the ocean to get our dance on while we cooled off! Thanks to the AQSTIX speaker’s super durable compression sealed shell, it functions perfectly even after being submerged in three feet of water. INSANE. It survived being splashed, dropped into the Caribbean Sea and being doused in rum punch. Oops.

About three seconds before I dropped it into the sea. Still working great! Why am I so happy? Starboy came on!

My sister and I also took it along for a walk to nearby Enterprise Beach. It also worked beautifully despite being almost 50 feet away from my phone. This little speaker, coming in at only $129.95 was kicking the ass of my other wireless speaker that cost twice as much. To top it all off, the AQSTIX speaker allows you to play music via AUX input, Bluetooth, as well as through the integrated MicroSD slot on the side of the speaker. The AQSTIX is also an on-the-go charging station for all your USB devices. It couldn’t be more perfect.

Specter Wireless has a host of amazing products to choose from. Check out their website for a full list of their offerings and treat yourself to an AQSTIX speaker. You will thank me! Specter Wireless is also on Facebook and Instagram.

*A huge thank you to Specter Wireless for providing the AQSTIX in exchange for my honest opinion.

    It being waterproof makes it so great for the beach. You gotta have your tunes for the perfect beach day.

      Hey Berniedette! I was worried about bugging other people, but this gorgeous beach wasn’t very busy at all and two other couples had music, so we were all good!

    Cool! I love that this is waterproof and thus made for the beach. Cute suit too 🙂
