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.
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)
