Scosche today unveiled its weatherproof boomBOTTLE, an omnidirectional outdoor speaker that is designed to fit in standard bicycle bottle cages, providing streaming music while biking, hiking, camping, and participating in other outdoor activities.

The boomBOTTLE incorporates 40mm drivers along with a passive subwoofer, and a built-in lithium-ion battery offers 10 hours of playback per charge.


Scosche’s speaker has a durable TPU exterior that is designed to withstand vibrations from rough terrain riding and a splash proof casing makes it usable even when exposed to rain and sweat. Charging and audio ports remain accessible through a top flap.

With its built-in microphone, the boomBOTTLE can be used as a speakerphone, and it features Bluetooth connectivity with a range of 33 feet.

Scosche has also debuted RH1060 Reference Grade Bluetooth Headphones, a new wireless option for its line of reference grade headphones. The over-ear headphones use 40mm neodymium magnet drivers and feature ear cups made from viscoelastic memory foam.

The boomBOTTLE and the RH1060 Headphones are currently on display at CES, which lasts from January 8 to January 11. Pricing and release date have yet to be announced.

Just what we need, noise when we want to relax outdoors…
Lovely…. I already have to deal with bikers thinking they own the entire road, now I get to listen to them jamming to Michael Bolton too?

what benefit does this have to a solitary bike rider over headphones?

How about the ability to still hear the traffic around you?
This expensive water bottle provides a much safer way to listen to music while biking.

Not to mention that it is ILLEGAL to wear headphones while riding in most jurisdictions. Bicycles move too fast for the riders to be unaware of their surroundings.

That being said, I also don’t want to force the world around me to listen to my music while I ride. When I stop, though, or if I am inside on a trainer or rollers, this would be a good option. Earphones can slip out, headphones can get too sweaty.

“Wow, this cycle in the wilderness sure is thirsty work – I’d better have a drink, I don’t want to dehydrate.”

“Oh wait…”

“Curse my inability to not listen to music and just enjoy the peace and quiet of nature for more that five minutes at a time!”

Yeah except the “expensive water bottle” isn’t even a water bottle. If it was a water bottle in addition to a speaker then that would be different. This thing just wastes the space on my bike where my water should be.
