I’m a traditionalist when it comes to playing the game of golf and as such I have not been of the belief that music should be played on speakers during a round. I’ve played golf with a few who have done so in their golf carts and kept the volume down so as to not bother anyone else, and I suppose that’s fine. I’m trying to accept listening to music on the course in the “grow golf” perspective. So perhaps it is acceptable, so long as it does not ruin the experience of other golfers. With that said, please keep the barftastic Kenny G, Hootie and the Blowfish, Dave Matthews, John Mayer, and James Taylor the hell away from me.
If you want to play some metal or progressive rock, lets talk. Perhaps some Lamb of God, Meshuggah, Sevendust, Porcupine Tree, Tool…
The Boom Swimmer Bluetooth speaker is your ticket for listening to some fabulous metal on the course. It comes in a small and waterproof package but cranks up nicely, with some surprising bass response. Not enough to rattle my bowels loose like I prefer, but not bad given the size.
The Swimmer (as one might gather from the name) is waterproof. So if you’re golfing in the rain, the unit has no problems with that. Also, you can hang it in the shower (pic below) and listen to tunes while scrubbing behind your ears.
Here are the basic features and highlights:
Setup is very easy. A couple of button pushes on your iPhone, Android Phone, iPad, tablet, computer or any bluetooth device and you’re sending a signal to the unit. I even used the unit on Halloween to play scary sounds and music on my front porch. No wires. Great.
The Swimmer can be used in so many applications other than just golf. It would make a great Christmas gift!
