Rated 5 out of 5 by Zephyr33 Sweet Speaker Case!
This case is awesome. Great sound out of the speaker, super sturdy and durable and a good amount of space inside. I haven't tested it in water yet, but based on the quality of it so far, I would bet that it's great at keeping water out as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermontmemere Great gift - great price - great quality!
I bought this for my husband, who is a mechanic, last year for Christmas - he loves it!!! He can listen to his music all day without earbuds and not worry about breaking his ipod at the shop. I definitely recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KFortier5 Serves it's purpose, with some limitations.
This product is sturdy and well built. I have no doubt that my iPhone is protected. Functionality is very simple. Plug your device into the earphone jack and you are ready to roll. There is a volume dial on the outside of the case. That's it. Very simple. Battery life seems to be good. Use rechargables to get longer life.
That's the good. Here's the bad. I'd really like the ability to track forward and back without opening the case. If you want to change the song, you have to open it up. Problem is, I use this on a boat. The whole purpose of getting it was to prevent accidents from happening (the case floats when it's closed). But if you constantly have to open it to change the track, that obviously presents additional opportunities for accidents. I recommend putting your phone on shuffle and letting it rip.
I think I might drill a hole in the case so I can run an earphone-jack-based remote control cord out of it. Then seal the cord and hole with a rubber grommet or caulking. Just an idea to add functionality.
Finally, I will point out that the speaker quality is average at best. Little amplification, no real low end sound (bass), and distortion at the highest volume setting. I put it in a bucket and it sounded better. But, the sound will get you by on a camping trip, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brookie11 This thing's GREAT
I love this little speaker. I've taken it to the beach several times and this winter, ice fishing. It works great and keeps my iphone, money and keys nice and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VallecitoGirl Surprisingly good sound quality
So far, we're quite pleased with this case. It's bigger than we expected (so probably wouldn't make the cut on backpacking or hiking trips), but there is plenty of room inside for your ipod and other essentials. The sound quality is surprisingly good for such a small speaker. The hollow box itself acts as a speaker box- when the case is open, the sound is quite tinny, but closed, it brings out the bass and produces a much fuller, richer tone. *A note on batteries*- be sure to read the instructions. We use rechargeable batteries, and when we first put batteries in, they were not fully charged (though we thought they were, got mixed up with some spent ones). When we turned it on, it squawked and squeaked and we thought we had a defective unit and were planning on returning it. After reading the instructions, however, it says low power in the batteries will cause it to squawk. We charged the batteries again, it worked perfectly. The unit played just fine for 20+ hours (probably more) on a full charge before it started to squawk. Rechargeables are definitely the way to go if you plan on using this frequently. I'm not about to go drop it in the water, but it certainly seems stout and waterproof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MinnesotaMinivanMom Should do the trick.
I purchased this for my husband so his iPhone wont end up in the drink when we are on the dock or pontoon boat. It seems to be what we needed, the speaker isn't extremely high quality, however. In an outdoor sport, usually a person is making some noise, climbing, skiing, hiking, etc... I hope we can hear it over our activities... It seems very durable and well-made. I think if it does fall into the water, the cargo will be just fine!
