Finnish Bluetooth speaker can survive sauna temperatures

And it can also be used as an ice bucket!

It’s summer, and music is a must on the beach, at the swimming pool, in the woods and maybe even in the sauna.

Because of course a Bluetooth speaker developed in Finland has to be able to survive a sauna, and the new Finnish Zone Bluetooth speaker can do just that, as well as being able to store ice cubes thanks to its special design.

Zone Bluetooth is splashproof (IPX4) and resistant to both cold and heat. And it’s designed as an ice bucket. There’s even enough space to use the ice cubes to chill three or four beers. It doesn’t get much more Finnish than that.

But the manufacturer also promises good sound, even daring to call Zone Bluetooth a Hi-Fi speaker. In any case, it supports numerous Bluetooth audio profiles, including A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, SPP, BAS, DIS, FMP, HRP, HRS, HTP, HTS, IAS and LLS, and promises speaker distortion of less than 1%.

Sound is provided by two 10W full-range drivers and a 20W subwoofer. The frequency range is 40 Hz – 20 kHz (-6 dB).

The speaker comes with a built-in 2500 mAh battery and weighs 2,1 kg.

Zone Bluetooth costs EUR 369 and can be ordered here.

Five decades of Polk

American Polk Audio has been making speakers for 50 years. The R200AE is an anniversary model, signed by the company's founder.

Loudspeakers for the man cave

Elipson Heritage XLS11 are French - but look like American monitor speakers from the golden age of stereo.

The best we have heard

The green speakers from Monitor Audio are a great birthday present! In fact, you get everything here.

Sound in minimal volume

The DALI Phantom K-60 LP in-wall speakers require virtually no installation recess.

The best Sony buy?

Sony's mid-range soundbar takes it up a notch with compelling surround sound. But how good is the HT-A5000 compared to the Sonos Arc?

Lights, party and cold beers!

Zone Bluetooth is a portable speaker for a very specific target group.
