Grace Digital Audio makes all sorts of audio goodies, such as devices like the Solo WiFi Radio Tuner that I talked about earlier this month. The company has now unveiled another new product that is perfect for the outdoors type looking to listen to music from an MP3 player without headphones.
The device is called the Eco Extreme All-Terrain MP3 Speaker. The speaker is priced at $49.99 and is waterproof and rugged. The outside of the speaker is covered in a rubberized material to protect against drops and falls. The entire housing is waterproof to IPX7 standards.
The driver inside the device is a 3-inch unit and the entire enclosure is attached to a 2-inch carabiner letting you hook the speaker to a backpack or other device. The Eco Extreme is actually a case that opens and you place your device inside and inside is room for other items like credit cards and keys. The jack for the speaker is a 3.5mm unit and the Eco Extreme supports iPods and the iPhone.
