The Waterproof Surf Sound Talk, For Important Business Calls While You’re In The Shower

pyle-surfsound-talk

Pyle is definitely making some waves out in the waterproof-gadget space with their hydrophobic earphones and speakers.

We’re venturing out into deeper water with this next Pyle gadget, though, as it’s pretty unusual: The Surf Sound Talk is a waterproof Bluetooth hybrid handset-speakerphone capable of taking calls, if not actually underwater (due to the inability to conduct a conversation with one’s mouth full of water) then at least while splashing around a pool, in the drink or under a shower.

It carries an IP-47 rating, which means it’s waterproof to one meter (ignore the first digit; the second digit is the one that describes waterproofness). But the really interesting feature of the Surf Sound Talk is that it can switch from a standard speakerphone into an old-school handset for more privacy during calls.

Just like most speakerphones, it can also play music and is even equipped with track control buttons.

The Pyle Surf Sound Talk is out now and costs $65.
