Engadget: We’re not sure what took Grace Digital this long to release the Eco Terra, but hey, you can now grab one well ahead of the summer season. Priced at $149.99, this IPX7-certified boombox works just fine even when dunked in water — the two 3-inch speakers will always float upwards to annoy fellow swimmers. There’s no iPod dock connector here as the job’s done using a 3.5mm jack inside the watertight compartment, but much like many iPhone headsets these days, you can use the buttons at the top to control music playback and volume on supported iPods or iPhones; whereas with other MP3 players you can only change the volume after flipping a switch.
Additionally, the Eco Terra comes with an air pressure release valve to allow easy compartment access across different altitudes. We assume this means someone somewhere has a habit of blasting out music while trekking. Of course, you’ll need to install four C batteries to get things started, and that’ll keep you partying in the wild for around 25 hours — long enough to play the Baywatch soundtrack CD about 23 times.
