Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Oucomi iChocolate Mini Bluetooth Speaker. I was very conflicted as to whether or not to do this item as an item of the day. Here is why, I found this by visiting a friend that had one, it was great and I thought for 45 bucks it was a hell of a deal. I came home, I bought one, it has worked great in every way.
I always syncs easily with honestly less issues in syncing than my 300 dollar Bose Speaker. It is water proof, like really water proof, like sit out in the rain water proof, just not throw in the pool water proof. And I know it works that way because I took it in the shower one night with a beer and enjoyed tunes while I cleaned up and it never missed a beat!
So what is the problem, the problem is Oucomi is a bunch of cheaters, paying people with sock puppet accounts to leave positive reviews on Amazon to get more notice and of course sales.
So I was sitting here with this 45 dollar speaker that is as good as anything I have laid hands on under 100 bucks and thinking, what do I do, in the end I decided to do this. I am telling you this speaker is a good value, it works great and I have had it for 3 months now and I love it. I don’t get paranoid with it by the pool or when working out on property like I do with my expensive Bose speaker.
I am also telling you these people are system cheaters, they are building good solid products but they are manipulating the Amazon review system. I would say the solution to such things is really in Amazon’s hands to provide a bit better oversight of their review, just like it was google’s responsibility to make their search algorithms better when people like me were owning the search engine results like a well beaten mule back in the early 2000s.
So the choice is yours, if you are looking for a low cost, reliable Bluetooth speaker with IPX5 level water proofing this thing pasts muster. But if you don’t want to buy something from a company gaming the Amazon system, you should know that these people are. Problem is at this price point I have yet to find a better water proof speaker than this one. So I do recommend it for that reason, in short gaming the review system or not, the damn thing works and works great!
Personally I think the Oucomi iChocolate Mini Bluetooth Speaker is a solid piece of gear for the price, for more info and a demo of it, see the video below.
