TDK Life on Record Wireless Weatherproof Speaker A33

16 March 2014
  • Summary: CNET notes that it's only "splashproof," not truly waterproof, but it includes other protective features as well, like a removable rubber door that protects its ports from dust and moisture. There are also rubberized feet on the bottom to keep it from shifting around when played at high volume. At 3 pounds, the A33 is heavier than some waterproof speakers, but it's certainly compact enough to carry to the beach and tough enough to withstand sand and water.
  • Pros: Good sound, Rugged design, Easy to transport, Speakerphone function
  • Cons: So-so battery life, Some problems with streaming

TDK A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker Review

11 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Today’s review is not totally unrelated with the season we are in now and i say that because during testing we even left the A33 out in the rain to test its weatherproof capabilities and yes it's still good as new. Certainly that doesn't mean that you can submerge it in water (weatherproof and waterproof are two different things) but it is splash-proof so you should be able to take it to the beach, use it while in the bathroom or leave it outside in the rain without...
  • Pros: - Build Quality, - Portable, - Weatherproof, - Design, - Audio Clarity & Bass, - Bluetooth & 3.5mm AUX Input, - Volume LED Bar, - Stand, - Rechargeable Battery (Lasts Well Over 5 Hours), - Price (For Some)
  • Cons: - Volume Levels (Compared To The A26), - No Treble/Bass Controls, - Bluetooth V2.1 (Effective Wireless Range Compared For Example To The A26)

TDK Life on Record A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker: Impressive for the money

24 January 2014
  • Summary: While the TDK Life on Record A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker has a few small shortcomings, it delivers very good sound for its size and price and is well suited to both indoor and outdoor use with a sturdy, splashproof design.
  • Pros: The TDK Life on Record A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker delivers very good sound for its size, has a sturdy, water-resistant design, speakerphone capabilities, and a USB charging port to charge your smartphone or tablet. It's also a decent value at around $150 online.
  • Cons: Battery life (6 hours) isn't great, you must recharge the speaker with an AC adapter rather than a common Micro-USB cable, and there's no pause/play button on the speaker itself.

TDK A33 Review

Ken Rockwell
16 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought one of these for myself when I saw it recommend in Consumer Reports' list of the 10 top electronic products of 2013. Out of the thousands of products tested by Consumer Reports, they chose just ten as the year's standouts in their December 2013 issue. Along with TVs, phones and cameras was this TDK speaker, rated as one of the best they've tested, and it's priced at a fraction of those from more heavily advertised brands.

Expert Review

5 November 2013
  • Excerpt: With a huge 80 metres range and a solid six hour battery life, the TDK A33 sounds like the ideal Bluetooth speaker for outdoors. On paper at least - but in practice? Watch thje clip above to see how it fared in Jason and Rachel's assault course group test.

11 September 2013
  • Summary: Al met al is de A33 een leuk product. Zo’n compact ontwerp en toch een groots geluid. Door zijn robuustheid en vochtbestendigheid is de A33 perfect voor on-the-go.
  • Pros: + Degelijke constructie, + Losse subwoofer - goede bas, + Bluetooth makkelijk in gebruik, + 'Telefoonknoppen'
  • Cons: - USB-poort alleen om mobiele apparaten op te laden
