This cool speaker floats and subs in water for excellent sound in pool, spa, hot tub, even the lake.
Great for playing music and voice calls, the ION Audio Party Starter was easily the best speaker we tested under $50. It’s as bright, colorful, and functional as the party speakers costing twice as much.
