Ever wanted to worship your favorite audiophile brand but often find yourself stuck outdoors with no way to protect a $500 pair of lovingly crafted headphones? JBL has just announced its waterproof and rugged Clip 2 and Charge 3 portable speaker products to solve this issue.


The Clip 2 comes with Bluetooth streaming capabilities, a built-in carabiner, a IPX7 waterproof rating which means you can submerge it in water, and the ability to daisy chain speakers together for extra sound. While also containing an integrated 2.5mm AUX cable sound input, this speaker is coated in fabric material and comes with a rubber housing to ensure its own safety.

The Charge 3 is packed with a 6000mAh internal battery and also comes with an IPX7 waterproof rating. In addition, this product comes packed with daisy chain abilities through 'JBL connect', allowing you to connect any JBL connect certified speaker in line with this device. This speaker is also rated at a higher bass threshold, offering what JBL calls its 'bass radiator'.

The Clip 2 will set users back $59.95 and the Charge 3 $149.95, both products release this Spring and will be available on the JBL website.
