Same shell, better stuff inside.

Any time is a good time for an impromptu dance party. Let's face it, you were born with this ability to produce smooth dance moves, so show them off while rocking tunes out of the Outdoor Technology Turtle Shell 2.0 Wireless Boom Box. The folks at Outdoor Technology kept the same water, shock, and dust-proof case that meets rigid IPX-65 standards of excellence, but they made the two speakers and passive bass radiator 30% louder. And you didn't think you could get kicked out of a hotel with a portable Bluetooth 4.0 enabled wireless speaker! The rechargeable lithium-ion battery can run for up to 16 hours, so you can rock it at the crag or on the ski hill and kept the party rolling to the hotel or backyard. Pesky wires always seem to get in the way of your breakdancing routine, but the 2.0 has a wireless range of 32 feet, so wires or the shell itself won't be getting in your way.

Can you plug in none blue tooth devices to this turtle shell?

Hey BSHEUER404400 ,

Yes, you can use a 3.5mm audio-in port instead of using blue tooth!

Small box, big sound.

Love this little thing. Great for backpacking! Light enough and small enough, not to mention more than tough enough! A must have for any music and backpacking enthusiast!

So nice I bought it twice

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

After doing some research I bought one of these as a present for my non-tech savvy mom to have and take to the back patio and the beach. Super easy to set up (gives you voice confirmation on turning on and completing synching), nice color (purple and sea-form-easy to find/not forget), and sounds great for the size, good base and easy to hear/understand middle and treble. Worked so well that I bought a second one for myself. One nice feature that I didn't realize it had and haven't used yet is a tripod screw in bracket on the bottom so I can connect it to gorrilla mini-tripod to hang from a tree branch or the ceiling of my tent.

Killer Turtle-Beast!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

What a cool speaker- I've had it for a day and I love it already. Sound quality is great, the speaker phone is excellent, and the long battery life is a big selling point- as are the stealth-fighter-esque looks of the thing.

Showed it to a buddy of mine yesterday, and he's planning on picking up a couple more for his sons for Christmas now.

If I do anything ridiculously awesome with it, other than blast tunes while hanging out at the house or in the car or whatever, I'll be back to tell you about it.

I like Turtles.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This little guy is great! It's small and light, making it a perfect companion on any trip. The sound is excellent if you fancy bluegrass like I do, but I'd look for a larger speaker like the Big Turtle Shell if you're into bass-heavy music.

I've used this thing all over - from relaxing down by the river to gearing up at the crags, the OT Turtle Shell 2.0 has never let me down.

My turtle was right at home up on the belay ledge this past weekend!

I like Turtles.

I love my little turtle!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Took this baby camping so that we could have music during our down time. It lasted the whole trip (4 days) and only needed to be charged once. I'm incredibly amazed with the sound quality. It's small and pack-able which I enjoyed the most but has a huge sound. I highly recommend this little gem if you want a quality speaker. Also the connectivity is awesome and it is 100% user friendly. I also use it to play music in the shower, while cooking, cleaning, studying and parties. Its waterproof so if your friend accidentally spills a beer or water or whatever liquid on it, Your speaker is safe and sound! Outdoor Tech is a great company too. They back up all their product so if you ever have issues hit them up and they will totally help you out!

It doesn't get much better.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second turtle shell after my original decided to take a dip in the lake. Outdoor Tech had me sold on the original turtle shell, and I didn't hesitate to get another. The sound quality is amazing, and easily puts any other speaker of this size to shame. If your looking to take the music with you from the backyard to campsite to the pool, then look no further.

Perfect Product!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this about three weeks ago now and have used it outside at a large BBQ party, on the patio with friends, in my Jeep, and in my home. The speaker has been excellent in all applications and was MORE than loud enough - louder than a bear like it says on the box? I don't know but loud enough and clear enough to serve its function.
Things I really like:
1. Compact size allows to fit in anywhere, will fit on my Galaxy S3 phone and looks like a factory component.
2. Sound quality - clear and precise. Sounds as good as the track I am listening to can.
3. Volume - riding around in my vehicle the music and hands-free volume are great. I've been told I am more clear thatn when I use my wired headset.
4. Lightweight - I can drop this in my bag to carry anywhere and not notice it all.
5. Easy to sync - literally turn on your phone's bluetooth and turn this on. That's it. It works everytime.

This is an excellent product for my purposes. I did not want or expect a professional sound system but it EXCEEDS my expectations. Thank you Outdoor Tech for making exactly what I was looking for!

Is the charging cable the same as on the old version?

The Turtle Shell 2.0 uses a micro USB charger, which is different from the Turtle Shell 1.0 (mini b 8 pin).

Can you post a link to a charger cable for the 2.0? Having trouble finding the right one!

Nevermind- turns out I had the original Turtle Shell 1.0 THIS WHOLE TIME. Oops.

hook, line and sinker!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This speaker was purchased with a purpose. About a year ago, my whole car cd/radio/speaker system died. Since then I've resorted to various speaker rigging systems: iPhone in a cup, stolen laptop speakers or, my personal favorite, singing made up songs ultra loudly.
My boyfriend decided that in order to maintain his sanity and eardrums, enough was enough. It was time to invest. The boom box came in the mail on Friday and by Saturday at 7 A.M. we were on the road to Acadia National Park, which is roughly 6 hours away from where we live. This is important to mention before I say anything else: my car has no working AC (so if you want fresh air, windows must be down), sounds like it's missing the muffler, and my dog SCREAMS like a dolphin 50% of the time he's in the car. So when I say this, I mean it - this speaker rocks. I'm beyond impressed with its sound capabilities as well as its battery life. The device itself pairs easily with an iPhone 5 and 4S. Additionally, the boom box did not slide on the dash when driving around corners or go flying on incredibly bumpy roads. Outdoor Tech has brought my car back to life - AND saved my boyfriends' ear drums for a few more years. Now, if we could only get our dolphin-dog to stop screaming....

hook, line and sinker!

This review convinced me to buy a mighty killer Turtle friend. My car does not have bluetooth or aux-input connectivity in the stereo, and I really don't feel like shelling out for a new stereo- speakers are fine when I want to listen to the radio or a cd, but this little character does quite well with the music on my phone or ipod. Thanks Monique!

That is so stellar to hear Travis - rock on!!! My turtle just went sailing off the dashboard today and careened into the passenger seat - it's totally fine. I think it might play louder now! Hope your Turtle is slaying it!

Oh yeah, mine has jumped from its perch a few times, but for the most part stays in place really well! I have been blasting Quebecois ska punk fusion out of it for the last few days and it is killing it!

Check out Afrocelt - the speaker handles the base REALLY well!!

What the shell?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Each time I use this little speaker, I become more and more impressed. The first time I heard the musical goodness flow from its spikey exterior I couldn't believe it. Surprisingly good bass for a little speaker (best I've heard compared to other speakers within the same price point), awesome battery life (I recharge it maybe once a week with moderate use), and just an overall cool setup. Really dig the water resistance and tough construction. One negative I've noticed is that the bluetooth range is definitely not 32 feet, and probably resides at about 20 max, but who cares? Overall, awesome speaker - Outdoor Tech is doing it right!

It's Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

just like all of the other reviews this is a great little speaker! i live in WA and I'm constantly outside working in the rain and it is water proof. Well for the rain lol it could have a little better bass to it but for the size and quality of the sound its perfect

We're Jammin

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This little guy jams! Bought one for a gift and decided to take it on a 'test run' in the desert. Now I have one and love him. He follows me everywhere I go and never get sick of him. Sound is great and the speakerphone is an added bonus. Battery life is longer than expected. Promise you won't be disappointed.

Worth It!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this speaker planning to only use it for camping/grilling, but i've been using it nearly every day around the house too. The sound quality is actually really good for the size. No issues so far, and the speakerphone functionality is perfect.

Added plus: All Siri voice recognition functionality works (iphone 5), including the music commands. This means when i'm outside with the speaker and my phone is charging inside, I still have complete music control via voice command. I'm guessing that it will work with other voice command phones, but so far I've only tried it with the iPhone 5.

Concert in the sand!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This was a great buy! It surrounds you with sound in the wide open space! The battery life is extensive, and lasts and lasts. You can leave it in your backpack and listen to music for an entire hike, or jam out around the camp fire. Love this boom box!

Love it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have only had the Turtle Shell 2.0 for less than a week and I love it! The battery life on it is amazing, the volume and clarity is great, however it doesn't have that much bass. I would put it against a Beats Pill anytime!

Sweet Speaker

I recently purchased the Outdoor Technology Turtle Shell Boom Box and wanted to provide some feedback. I used it for the 1st time while doing some back country snowshoeing with friends.

I placed the speaker in a mesh pouch on my backpack and we were all able to enjoy clear music the entire day. Everyone was surprised how loud and clear the speaker performed.

Unfortunately, toward the end of the day I had a mishap and ended up sliding about 500 yards down the side of the mountain. I was finally able to stop myself but my Turtle Shell, along with a couple other items, continued into a shallow creek. It was amazing that I could still hear the music playing after all the impact and the speaker being partially submerged in water. I was unable to recover the speaker because of my condition but will be purchasing another.

Thanks, Outdoor Technology, for creating such a durable product that allows me to enjoy music while exploring the outdoors.
