Meet our most innovative speaker yet. The high-end Mengo AquaPOD waterproof speaker delivers the richest, loudest sound we have yet to offer. With a deep, booming bass, a clear-as-water treble, an upgraded battery system and wide ranging Bluetooth capability, the AquaPOD plays music the way it was intended to be heard.
Benefits and Features:
- Waterproof Capability: Best of all, the AquaPOD is IPX7 waterproof. Unlike inferior products with many restrictions on actual water resistance, our model allows for extensive outdoor use including extended full submersion in water. With advanced battery capabilities and a built-in microphone, this highly portable speaker system lasts up to 12 hours with continuous playback. Now you can bring the party with you for as long as it lasts, wherever it takes you.
- Power, Performance, & Play: The Mengo AquaPOD has two powerful 10-watt built-in speakers along with two 40mm drivers which pack a powerful bass and a clear cut sound. The 2600mAH rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers up to 12 hours of playtime and charges quickly with common USB power sources. Lighten your suitcase and forget about packing bulky chargers, cables or headphones. Once charged, the no-fuss AquaPOD lasts from sunset to sunrise and beyond.
- IPX7 Technology: The Mengo AquaPOD is not the delicate, temperamental sound system you may be used to. There are no wires to tangle and no cords to forget. This long lasting Bluetooth speaker system designed to be waterproof, shockproof and dustproof and can be submerged in up to three feet of water for as long as 30 minutes. From the sandy beach to a dusty mountain campsite, the AquaPOD is robust enough to keep up with your adventures, whether this means sand, mud, dirt or water. Don’t worry about small particles interfering with your speaker and bringing your party to a grinding halt. Whether you are roughing it in the outdoors or require musical accompaniment in the shower, the AquaPOD delivers high quality sound anywhere music can be played.
- Strength & Design: Hang your new waterproof speaker system off the handlebars of your bicycle for a ride in the rain, place it in a bookshelf for your house party or let it sink to the bottom of your hot tub. The versatile Mengo AquaPOD is designed for sleek simplicity and portability. Its single-piece aluminum casing is both attractive and durable and the included leather strap is perfect for convenient, on-the-go use.
- Bluetooth & Range: The AquaPOD is compatible with any phone, tablet or music playing device featuring 4.0 Bluetooth (CSR Chipset) technology within an accommodating 30-foot range. Ditch the wires and get straight to the music with the Mengo AquaPOD.

- Waterproof up to 3 feet for 30 mins
- Impressive long battery life
- Good volume - in my testing various songs/genres I never hear any distorition even at full volume.
- Well built
- 2 x 5 watt drivers = 10 watts = great for a speaker this size
- No bass radiator for truly "deep bass" - bass is present but underwhelming
- Mids are muddy and get lost in the mix, highs (treble) are exaggerated and almost overpowering at highest volume
So there may be only 2 CONs, but they both pertain to the overall sound of the AquaPOD and isn't that really why you're buying a bluetooth speaker? And if I lost you on passive bass radiators, let me give a basic explanation of how they work and why: when a speaker has a passive bass radiator, it's basically just another speaker cone but with no electricity going to it (passive). When the main drivers (speakers) produce sound, they cause the air within the speaker chamber to move - thus causing the bass radiator to vibrate and produce deeper bass. This is used a lot in smaller speakers and it works very well - i.e. Bose Soundlink Color, etc. The AquaPOD to my knowledge does not have a passive bass radiator which would explain the absence of deep bass.
But, I'm not an audiophile just yet - just an audio enthusiast and a professional musician for the past 40 years. I tested this speaker with songs from various genres including pop, hip hop, classical, film, contemporary, etc. Some sounded better than others but my review is regarding the overall sound. While *I* am not sold by the sound of this speaker, it may be just what you're looking for. Like i said the sound isn't horrible - it's pretty decent and along with the PROs I listed I think this is a great speaker for the price. However, if you care more about sound, consider the Bose Soundlink Color or Sony SRSXB2/BLK Portable Wireless Speaker with Bluetooth (Black) which has 1 passive bass radiator, is water resistant, 12 hour battery, and speakerphone or Sony SRSXB3/BLK Portable Wireless Speaker with Bluetooth (Black) which is almost identical but has 2 passive bass radiators. I have the Sony SRSX5 and it's AMAZING and could go toe to toe with Bose.
So, I hope this has been helpful in choosing a portable bluetooth speaker and somewhat educational in their design. Thanks for reading and happy hunting!
I was purchasing as a gift for my sister. She has kids and I felt the speaker would need to survive the ever present danger of being thrown in the pool, the bathtub, the toilet, or even down a flight of stairs. I did not want to get her an ugly speaker because i care for my sister more than that. Once I determined the speaker needed to be of the "rugged" variety next was "not ugly" and that pretty much excluded 95% of otherwise viable options. I was pretty close to including the Aukey SoundTank due to the excellent reviews, astounding battery life, and decent price. If I was buying for myself I would have loved to give that one a try, but it's appearance like most waterproof designs is far too macho man/spec-ops status for my sister.
Which leads me to the reason behind all of those three stars, the Mengo really is a beautiful "POD!" I began having second thoughts thinking for sure it was going to be some lightweight paper thin aluminum that would dent as soon as you look at it. I WAS SOOO WRONG!! It was very solid, wouldn't look out of place resting next to the finest macbook pro in fact. Quite impressive is that aluminum housing I was considering keeping it for aesthetics alone (not really, but that would be funny).
First, the Bose: it is not rugged of course, it just happens to sit a few feet from me at my office (tested all speakers in same spot via Bluetooth). The sound is very pleasant and definitely has a very solid bottom end. The sound is very full but the high frequencies are reduced. This allows for lower listening fatigue and also helps when the original recording wasn't so great and also glosses over compressed music (mp3 artifacts). The end result is pretty good, but you are definitely missing the punch in voices / Etc.
The Anker was what I gifted to my sister. It was 60 bucks. If i was willing to go way over 100 dollars there were some better options that I think might have been better looking and better specs too. Anyway, it was the only one in this price range that had good specs, good reviews, and didn't look like you were getting ready for WW3. I didn't like the tall and skinny shape being more susceptible to falling over, and also the rear bass radiator has no cover which is still kind of a big gripe of mine. The sound though is excellent and gives up some bass for more treble extension compared to the Bose.
The Mengo like I said is very pretty, I think probably the best looking rugged speaker by a long shot. If you do not care so much about sound quality this one is a no brainer, it's beautiful IMHO. But unlike the title there is little bass and what's there is spotty. The highs are over emphasized quite a bit in my opinion. It sounds ok at very low listening levels if you are ok with basically no bass. If you bump up the volume just a bit the oddly spotty bass appears and the treble begins to be slightly harsh. Then you go up higher in volume and the bass distorts and the highs are out of control, everything sounding like a tin can. I did not test with aux cable since my sister would never use it, but I'm assuming the harsh treble would be minimized if the source material is good enough. This one also is tall and skinny, combined with very rounded body will have a tendency to fall over easily. Also, Bluetooth beeps are a bit loud.
In summary, if you mainly want the most stylish rugged speaker under $100 and you are not concerned about audio quality and will be listening mostly at a lower volume then this could be a good option. If you are concerned more about audio quality then i would say go for any other speaker over $20 that got good reviews.
Feel free to leave any questions or comments. No, I was not paid nor did I receive any of the aforementioned speakers for free or even a discount. I am just passionate about speakers I guess. Thank you.
So far the battery life is excellent. Curious to see how it does a few months from now. It charges fast and lasted through a bonfire, 6 mile hike and yard work the next day without a charge.
Cons: While the design makes this speaker easy to take along with you it isn't sturdy up on its tail end or resting on its side. When it isn't clipped to something its easy to tip over. When you lay it flat, songs with lots of base will make it vibrate on the counter.
Biggest Con: You need a direct line of sight between the speaker and your phone or it looses the signal. Which kind of stinks when you've purchased a waterproof speaker. What good is waterproof when I have to have my phone within a few feet of me? Also, I can't leave my phone in the kitchen and walk into another room with this speaker, even if its only a few feet away. (I didn't have this problem with my JBL Flip) And they mean it when they say the range is 30 feet.
That being said, for $50 I think its a good value for your money and I would purchase this product again.
