I normally put my smartphone on a shelf to listen to music while taking a bath or showering, and a few years back I thought about using Bluetooth speakers, but few solutions were waterproof, and/or the price must have been high, so I forgot about it. Following a post on ARMDevices.net about GTEK speakers, I found out there are now many waterproof Bluetooth speakers to choose from with prices starting as low as $7.
Some of key features of GTEK GP100 (GT-D201):
- Connectivity – Bluetooth 3.0 (Website also says Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR); 10 meter range
- Speakers – 2x 5W (or 3W?); 80db+ SNR; 80Hz – 18Khz frequency range; 4 Ohm
- Battery – 2,500 / 3,000 mAh
- IP Rating – IPX7
- Materials – Silicone rubber + ABS + metal
I could not find them on Aliexpress,. but the factory price is said to be $15 per unit for 1k order, so they may end up selling for about $30 to $40. A few more details can be found on GTEK GT-D201 product page.

Hm. I hope never to see someone with these on my trails.
I value the quietness of the surroundings when driving my ATB
They look perfect to hang it around in my car’s cupholder. But it’s unsettling the discrepancies on the specs. Hope to find it in a online store soon.
Yep. The ability to inflict noise on other people has expanded much faster than respect for their right to quietness.
