X18 Beacon Speaker from Spy Optic: Sounds Good


Playing music on the golf course, at least at respectable volumes, is becoming increasingly acceptable even at the world’s stuffiest courses. And with the Beacon Speaker from Sky Optic, it’s a synch.

The durable, water-resistant speaker is shaped like a water bottle and fits everywhere your water bottle does.

If a cupholder or bottle pocket isn’t available, clip it to your bag or cart—it’s drop resistant from more than a meter high. The Beacon offers 15 hours of continuous playback at max volumes.

With Bluetooth activation, the speaker also allows you to chat on the phone hands-free—but you shouldn’t need that feature on the course. $100; spyoptic.com
