ECOXBT Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

Summer is fast approaching, and with more warm weather weekends hitting the forecast, it’s already prime time for backyard barbecues, beachside boozing, backpacking, and Bluetooth. That’s right, Bluetooth. If you like taking your tunes with you outdoors, a set of Bluetooth speakers is essential. Boomboxes and speaker docks are great, but the fact that they hold your phone captive while in use is rather annoying, and most of them typically aren’t designed for outdoor activity. The vast majority are intended for use indoors, near an outlet, where absolutely no water, dirt, or stray footballs can touch them. Not very well suited for your adventurous lifestyle, now are they?

Enter the ECOXBT: a super-rugged and ultra-portable Bluetooth speaker designed by Grace Digital Audio to withstand the elements. It’s completely waterproof and carries an IPx7 rating, meaning it can be submerged in up to a meter of water without breaking a sweat. Not that you’d have to worry about it sinking that deep anyway; the whole thing is encased in a ring of buoyant rubber that keeps it afloat, speakers up, so the party won’t come to a halt when your drunk girlfriend knocks it into the pool. ECOXBT is also sand proof, mud proof, dust proof, and shock proof, so you’re more likely to wreck yourself before you wreck the speaker. It’ll probably outlast you too. With a rechargeable 3.7V 1800 mAh lithium-ion battery, it can keep running for up to ten hours.

In addition to an impressive battery life and excellent Bluetooth range, the the ECOXBT’s sound is astonishingly good. Although Grace Digital clearly put a huge amount of r&d into making it durable, they definitely didn’t skimp on the sound quality. Behind the steel screen you’ll find a pair of 2-inch full-range drivers that can pump out surprisingly detailed sound. Midrange and treble come out incredibly clear and crisp, which helps the sound carry through any background nature noises, and while the bass was harder to discen, we were still impressed with how low it could go. We did find that the sound started to get a little distorted at higher levels though, so keep it at around 80% of full volume for best results.

For 130 bucks, the ECOXBT is easily one of the best values you’ll find in a wireless outdoor speaker – especially when you consider how well designed and durable it is. Head over to learn more or place an order.

The best shows and movies to watch on Apple TV Plus in March
Apple TV+ has an impressive library that includes great movies and shows
Austin Butler in Masters of the Air.

When computer company Apple announced that it was getting into the streaming TV game, there were plenty of people who were skeptical about the company's ability to pull it off. Why would the tech giant, which is most known for the Macintosh and the iPhone, have any credibility in making television shows? It doesn't seem the two ideas would mesh in any meaningful way, but in the years since Apple TV Plus launched, the company has come up with some pretty impressive original shows, and it picked up a Best Picture Oscar on top of that.
What's even more impressive is that these Apple TV shows and movies run the gamut from comedy to drama, and are all set in wildly different and imaginative places. Apple may be best known for making great phones, but it turns out it knows how to tell pretty interesting stories, too. These Apple TV movies and shows are the cream of the crop and the best on this streaming service.
If you're looking for more great stuff to stream, you should also check out our lists of the best shows on Netflix, the best shows on Hulu, and the best shows on Disney Plus.

What does ‘No Contest’ mean in UFC? A simple explanation
ufc 271 channel adesanya vs whittaker head to

A no contest decision in UFC fighting can seem fairly confusing if you don't know how things can play out. Simply put, a no contest ruling means that neither of the fighters can be declared the winner. This may sound initially unfair, but like many rules in sports it will once you know the basics. We thought we'd help you out by providing some insight into what it means and how it affects the outcome. While a UFC bout can end via submission, technical knockout, knockout, forfeit, judges' decision, and disqualification, no contest can also happen once in a while.
What is a UFC 'No Contest' decision?
Effectively, a no contest tends to happen due to reasons which are outside of at least one of the fighter's control. This can include an accidental illegal strike that results in an injury such as a mistaken eye poke which can force a competitor to withdraw from the fight. If that happens, neither fighter wins and the bout ends. However, if it is found that the illegal strike was intentional then the bout ends with a forfeit and a loss against the person who inflicted the injury.

A no contest can also be due to a fighter sustaining an injury in the middle of the fight due to an accidental foul. This decision is up to the referee who must decide on the severity of the injury at the time. The referee also plays a role in the case of double knockouts, ring issues, and third-party interventions in the bout, and can also be forced to rule the fight as a no contest in these cases.
