If you’re someone who spends a lot of time outdoors walking, hiking, cycling or even camping, Andoer’s outdoor Bluetooth speaker is perfect for you. This is a speaker with extreme durability in mind, and surprisingly it has the sound to match. Not only is this speaker water resistant, it’s also shockproof and dustproof.
When I first took this Bluetooth speaker out of its box, I didn’t expect much from it due to its small size. However, once I turned it on and connected it to my tablet, I was blown away by the loud, clear sound and the noticeable bass.
Here’s a closer look at this small speaker that’s made for outdoor use.
What’s Inside the Box
Inside the box you’ll find:
- the Bluetooth speaker, of course
- one seat post clamp
- one camping snap hook
- one USB charge cable
- one suction cup (already attached)
- a user manual in English
The suction cup is great if you want to use the speaker in the shower, on a boat, or on a window. It comes already attached to the speaker but is easy to remove if you don’t want to use it. The snap hook is also great if you want to clip the speaker to a belt loop, backpack or something similar.
What sticks out to me is the fact that this speaker comes with a seat post clamp which lets you easily attach the speaker to a bike. It seems to be strong and well-made. If you’re big on cycling, this will really come in handy.
Setting Up the Speaker
Setting up the speaker is really easy. Once you turn it on, it will say “power on.” Then you should see it under Bluetooth devices as “C6.” Mine didn’t need a password, but in case you do for another type of device, use “0000.” It literally only takes a few seconds to pair.
There is nothing else that needs to be done. Now you’re ready to listen to music, watch videos, etc. Also, when you turn the speaker off, it will say “power off” which is nice. That way you know that the speaker is indeed off.
Using the Speaker
All of the ports and navigation buttons are conveniently placed around the sides of the speaker while the actual audio comes from the top. There’s the volume up/down buttons, which also go to the previous and next songs. Like with most speakers, you have to long press these buttons to change the volume levels. There’s also a power button, play/pause/phone button and the USB charging port.
Hidden in between the on/off button and the play/pause/phone button, you’ll find an LED indicator light (blue or red depending on the situation) and a built-in microphone for making and receiving phone calls.
- input voltage: DC5V/600MA

This small, stylish speaker definitely surprised me with its performance and quality. I love that it’s extremely versatile and can be used in many different ways like around water, on a bike or hanging by the clamp.
It does disappoint a little when it comes to working time (only 4 hours), especially since it’s meant for outdoor use. Luckily, it charges quickly, and as long as you have a portable charger, you shouldn’t ever have a dead speaker.
