Here are some snippets from their website
This is the Turtle Shell®, Outdoor Tech’s do-anything, go-anywhere wireless boom box. Yes, anywhere…it’s a picnic miracle. Cheese and crackers?
The Turtle Shell® will go wherever you do. Designed from the ground up at Outdoor Tech’s Los Angeles, CA headquarters, it features an angular, triangle-themed construction that fits in as well on your coffee table as it does out in the elements. Its water-resistant, dust-proof, shock-proof shell is probably tougher than you are, and its built-in speakerphone and microphone functionality means you’ll be double-fisting Dr. Peppers and having hands-free conference calls before you know it. Whatever your path and wherever you roam, the Turtle Shell® allows you to bring your music along to share with whomever you like.
Fully wireless, fully portable.
The Turtle Shell® wirelessly connects with your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any other Bluetooth-enabled device. It streams crystal clear audio for a range of up to 30 feet for 9 hours on a single battery charge. That means you have to be within thirty feet of the party and the party has to last 9 hours or less. We know, the latter is a little tough, but you have to go to class at some point, skippy.
Rugged, dust-proof, shock-proof, and highly water-resistant.
Designed and built with the outdoorsman in mind, the Turtle Shell® comes equipped with the features necessary to keep the music playing wherever your road may lead. Drop it, play hot potato with it, skip down your favorite dusty country path with it, you name it; the Turtle Shell® will handle it all, with its rubber-coated shell keeping out the dust and absorbing substantial impacts. Its IP65 water-resistance rating means it will withstand any amount of water short of submersion, so the occasional rain shower or splash of water will do no harm. It just can’t replace your favorite underwater battleship bubble bath toy…but we all know you’re too old for that anyway.
Built-in call/speakerphone functionality.
Have your next conference call on the best-looking Bluetooth speaker out there. Make and receive hands-free calls from anywhere, any time. Mario Cart and multi-person calls about how to still obtain burritos should a natural disaster occur just became part of your repertoire. Go ahead and put multi-tasking on your resume, you deserve it.
Big bass, clear highs, clean sound.
The Turtle Shell® comes with some of the biggest Hi-Fi sound in the business. That Drum & Bass never sounded better…who you calling a hipster?
The sky is the limit.
The Turtle Shell® is the only wireless Bluetooth speaker available with standard camera threading built into the base. This makes it compatible with any standard camera threading accessory, including Outdoor Tech’s own.
