Just like a phone, a Bluetooth speaker has found its way as a constant companion for many folks spending time in the outdoors, since there are few things better at passing the time than to have good music playing around camp. The Dreamwave Venture does other Bluetooth speakers one better by doubling as a two-way radio.
Similar to other Bluetooth speakers, you can use it to stream your favorite playlists wirelessly, whether you’re camping at a music festival, partying at a tailgate, or swapping stupid stories around a campfire. Except, you know, it also doubles as a push-to-talk walkie-talkie, so you can talk to friends when you get split apart without having to run up your phone’s minutes.
The Dreamwave Venture measures 5.8 x 2.9 x 1.7 inches (h x w x d), making it small enough to hang on a lanyard or a bag strap for easy portability. Designed for outdoor use, it comes with IPX5 rating for water, dust, sand, and snow, so you can get rough with this thing in tow without any worries. For playing music, it packs a 5-watt speaker with an omnidirectional sound processor, anti-distortion circuitry, and 45mm full-range drivers.
Do note, it maxes out at a three-mile range for the two-way radio function, so don’t split up too far from your group if you plan to use the walkie-talkies. It comes with a 3,600 mAh battery that’s good for 12 hours of playback on a single charge.
Available now, the Dreamwave Venture is priced at $99.99.
