Portable • Compact • Loud

Using two (2) 45mm-7Watt Drivers and a stiff passive radiator for extra deep bass, Buoy produces stunning cinematic sound, with smooth highs, crystal clear mid-range and bone-shaking bass and is equipped with a long lasting rechargeable lithium ion battery that when fully charged, will give you an amazing 24 hours of playtime.

So how does Buoy actually sound? In a word: Awesome.

Nothing sounds as good as these two bad buoys!

Raise the standard of sound quality and keep the tunes pumping rain or shine with Buoy. Compatible with any and every Bluetooth enabled device, this speaker is loaded with technology to provide true 360-degree sound.

Powerful True Audio Stereo Speaker with amazing detail and outstanding bass! You are going to love Buoy and we guarantee it!

 

Buoy uses two 40mm full range drivers for an incredible output coupled with a passive subwoofer to maximise the base response. This allowed us to pump out incredible 360º sound in true stereo for precise multi-dimensional sound reproduction all in a beautiful package that fits in your hand and budget.

 

All Day, All Night.

Your Music. Non-Stop. Up to 24 Hours.

For the Buoy to be truly portable and go anywhere it had to be packaged in a highly protective housing with an integrated rechargeable battery to keep the party going for 24 straight hours at full volume! The housing is sealed in an IPX 7 waterproof and sand proof cabinet and for shockproof and versatility, we wrapped it in high-grade silicone sleeve.

The most memorable beachside gatherings and camping trips are the ones where the music never stops.  With IPX 7, Buoy rugged exterior defends against water, sand and drops. It has the ability to float in water so don’t be afraid to take it to the water just be sure the interface door is sealed.

Up to 24 hours of continuous play on a single charge

Buoy is the only portable Bluetooth speaker we know that is truly waterproof, sand proof and shock proof that delivers crisp, deep room-filling sound and is equipped with a long lasting rechargeable lithium ion battery that when fully charged, will give you an amazing 24 hours of playtime.

Raise the standard of sound quality and keep the tunes pumping rain or shine with Buoy.

Inside the Buoy Speaker are two full range high quality drivers with neodymium magnets and a passive subwoofer to produce powerful bass and natural audio to fill the room. Buoy produces deep base at a remarkable volume.

As it’s wireless, you can bring this crisp and pristine sound wherever you want. The iconic Buoy shape is sleek and bold yet inconspicuous, enhancing any environment. Its modern look is only outdone with the its amazing sound.

Buoy offers convenience, portability, Big Volume and outstanding bass with no distortion in a compact, grab and go convenience and all neatly in this beautiful package that fits in your hand and budget.

 

 

Buoy is not just about flexibility; it was built to deliver superior sound.
Two speaker drivers and a passive radiator come together to deliver a new dimension to your audio and music.

Regular portable speakers have average sound power, but poor bass, and regular home speaker systems have good sound power, but are not portable.

Most speakers also tend to have big, obtrusive, in-your-face logos and branding. It is like you paid them then they advertise on your purchase. Enough, we said and so Buoy and Big Buoy will show the brand and certification on the bottom of the speaker and not anywhere else where it distracts from the speaker great looks.

 

Buoy is fully waterproof (iPX7 -- immersion up to 1 m for 30 minutes), as well as drop-resistant to five feet or 1.5 meters.

Buoy produces multi-dimensional, precise sound by replicating the techniques used on $1,000+ audio systems that control distortion of the music through hardware instead of software. – exactly the opposite of the typically muffled and tiny tones most smartphone speakers emit. Don’t let the size fool you.

“Amazing. Incredible. It’s so crisp. I want it! A big sound in a little box.”
~John “Nemo” Nemerovski  –  MyMac Reviews Editor

“ Nothing sounds better than BUOY in this price class. The soul shaking bass and room filling sound is simply nothing short of amazing. This Buoy is Loud! If you are in the market for a wireless speaker that delivers across the board, the Buoy is for you. ~Ani Ray Prototype tester

This small, timeless speaker will pump up the volume without distorting the sound quality. It’s less than two inches deep but packs a massive musical punch, connecting via Bluetooth, Auxiliary Audio Cable or from a Micro SD card.
On a full charge, it’ll play for 24 hours anywhere you take it.

But like your smartphone, Buoy travels well: in the park, on the road, the beach, the pool even the shower – the Buoy goes where you do. And if you want to leave your smartphone behind, Buoy can play your favourite tunes as an MP3 from a micro SD card and there is never a need for an SD card reader. Manage media on micro SD card when speaker is powered OFF and connected to your computer via Micro USB cable. Buoy will play from all files and folders on the SD card in an alphabetical order.
