I was sitting, relaxing in the hot tub. Enjoying the sounds of nature and the sun. I thought, what would make this better?
The answer is the same answer I would give if I were driving, if I were travelling on a train, or often if I have some time alone in the house.
What would that be? Listening to some music. For me, and I would think many others, music just enhances my mood. I have energising music; the sort of music I want to boost my energy levels. I have every day happy music. I have sad music.
In the case of this spa moment, the music I needed was some relaxing music. Something to just enhance the moment; help me to relax just that little bit more to the point of full amercement of relaxation and calm.
The biggest problem here though is electric and water don't mix. What I needed was a way to play my music is an intermate way, but a way that wasn't going to have a potential risk of destroying equipment or getting an electric shock.
The answer; waterproof Bluetooth speakers.
The great thing about blue tooth is, that, you don't have to have the music player in the same location. You can stream music from your phone, TV or any other blue tooth enable device straight to the speaker.
Many of these speakers today have rechargeable batteries; so you don't have any electrical leads with the potential to cause harm. Many also offer great sound quality - even if they only have 1 speaker in them.
Personally, I have a Juice Sound Square which is small, has a great rechargeable battery life and surprisingly gives a great sound quality for such a small item. The one issue with this little speaker is that it is not waterproof which means you need to be careful that it doesn't get smashed or falls in the hot tub.
If I were to buy a dedicated speaker for my inflatable hot tub it would be the Lay-Z-Spa Entertainment System which is specifically designed to be used with a Lay-Z-Spa hot tub.
If you own a Laz-Z-Spa inflatable hot tub then this is designed to be compatible with all Lay-Z-Spa air jet pumps.
This is a blue tooth speaker which supports Bluetooth 4.0, has a built-in rechargeable battery and has 2 cup holders as well. This can fit nicely at the side of your hot tub supplying you some tunes as well as a place to put your drinks down.
Another speaker you may want to look at if you have another brand of a portable spa or even a Lay-Z-Spa, is the Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Bluetooth Speaker. This has an IPX7 rating which means:
A device which is compliant with IPX7, covering immersion in water, need not be compliant with IPX5 or IPX6, covering exposure to water jets.
This is taken from the Wikipedia site on IP Ratings.
This speaker has some great reviews and with that rating, it means you will be getting something that won't be destroyed if it happens to get knocked into the hot tub.
There are many other waterproof speakers out there. Waterproof is usually better than water-resistant if you are looking.
When checking just how waterproof there are, check the IP code. Make sure that the IP code covers the amount of waterproof you need. I'd recommend something that is IPX7 or IP67 to ensure its as waterproof at possible for both your entertainment needs and safety.
Stress-free is what you want in your portable spa so waterproof is best. Then you too can enjoy some mood enhancing music that best suits your own hot tub moments.
