Based on its exterior layout alone, the Outdoor Tech OT1800 Turtle Shell 2.0 is not something that you usually see for a Bluetooth speaker.  In terms of its audio capacity, the audio can get really too loud which is surprising considering its small size.  Unfortunately, there are some distortion issues, especially with low-bass sound.  If you do not listen frequently on music that has low bass, this may not serve as an issue with you since this speaker produced a clear sound with loud music.

The dimension of this Bluetooth speaker measures at around 2.1×5.6×3.9 inches.  Basing it on the dimension alone will not give you the stunning contour of the Outdoor Tech OT1800 Turtle Shell 2.0. If you look at the top of the Turtle Speaker, you will be amazed on how perfect the triangles have been laid out which will instantly remind you about a high tech gadget that you saw on a sci-fi film.  The model is available at different vibrant colors that measures at a meager 0.7 lbs.

On the side of the Outdoor Tech OT1800 Turtle Shell 2.0, you will see the basic function such as pause, play, and pairing.  There is also a track control that is also used for controlling the volume of the Turtle Speaker.  A power switch is also located near an obscure USB port which can be used to charge using the supplied cable; unfortunately, there is no adapter included.  You can also found a built-in microphone which you can use to field in the calls from you smart phone.

Based on my experience, pairing it with an iPhone is very easy.  Based on the specifications, the battery can last up to 16 hours but it still highly depends on your way of use such as the volume of the speaker.

As it was stated above, the Outdoor Tech OT1800 Turtle Shell 2.0 has someproblem when it comes to music with low bass. You will notice some form of distortion on songs with sub-bass.  But with songs that does not have a deep bass, the sound that it produces is quite remarkable and it can fill up the entire room.  The sounds are clear and crispy that will surely delight you.  With Classical music, this Turtle Speaker is a perfect partner.  With its $73.99 this Bluetooth speaker is fairly reasonable for the quality of sound that it produced that can truly bring a life into a quiet room.

On top of that, the Outdoor Tech OT1800 Turtle Shell 2.0 is extremely resistant against water, shock and dust.  Enjoy your shower while you listen to your favorite song.
