Soundcast displayed their VG1 Bluetooth speaker, a fully waterproof design with an IP67 enclosure. Soundcast says their design produces the best sound in its class, and they just may be right. The sound I heard was very rich and crisp, belying its small size.
Soundcast is positioning the VG1 as the elite product in its class, and is backing that up all the way to the premium packaging. You can pair two of them together to make a left-right stereo pair, and a mic is included for hands-free calls and use with Apple’s Siri.
It’s a lot of money for a small speaker, but I think the rugged design and excellent sound make this one worth it.
