Recently I received a portable bluetooth speaker from Nyne, the NYNE NB-200 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Bicycle Clips to be precise. It’s small (5.7″ w x 3.4″ d x 2.9″ h) so you can take it anywhere: “in your bag, on your bike or poolside.” Well, I don’t have a pool, I don’t have a bike and I don’t see the point in taking it in my (diaper) bag. But I do have a running stroller… so I thought I could take it along with me that way. Alex and I could both listen to some tunes. Although, she’s way into “I’ve been working on the Railroad” and only when I’m singing it, not any other source (I tried YouTube clips, no dice) and I’m not making an mp3 of my bad singing voice to listen to on the run. So… Imagine Dragons FTW. (Don’t worry, she likes them too!)
I unboxed it and it comes with the charging cable, clips to attach to handlebars, the speaker, instruction book and a little velvet-ish bag to keep it all in. I charged it up (it took a few hours), played with the clips a few times to figure out how they worked and took the whole kit-and-caboodle* outside to attach it to the BOB.
Well… the clips didn’t fit around the BOB’s handlebars. 😦 Bummer…
So with that idea thwarted, I’ve used the speaker back and forth between my kitchen and my office. Setup/pairing is super simple and the sound is great. MUCH better than trying to listen to a podcast in the kitchen through the phone’s speaker. And while it also acts as a speakerphone, I have yet to use it that way! I get more emails/texts on my phone than actual voice conversations. (My iPhone is more of a smartdevice than a smartphone.)
I have the opportunity to give readers in the continental US a chance to win their own speaker! If you’ve got a bike, you can try mounting it on there and let me know how it goes! Or you can take it in your bag! Or by the pool! Your options are limitless! Although, that makes it seem like just 3 options. And you probably are limited in that you couldn’t take it scuba diving or something like that. And it would be weird if you took it out to dinner. #justsaying (oh yeah, there’s a hashtag in the midst of the blog post!)

*kit and caboodle… what a weird saying.
I’d probably use it mainly on the bike. And maybe I’d take it into the bathroom to use while I’m in the shower.
Duh! Why haven’t I used it while showering yet?
I’d use it only on my bike.
I would use it on my son’s jogging stroller and my other son would use it with his iPad!
on my bike commute to work.
On the patio! Love to have music when we have friends over, I wouldn’t have to blast it from the livingroom anymore.
I’d use it on my bike!
I would use it with my tablet for movies/music.
I’d use a portable speaker when practicing yoga outdoors. I like to occasionally do yogadownload.com classes in a nearby park.
Yoga in the park! Brilliant! Actually, I should just try doing it in my backyard. Thanks for inspiring me!
We’ve been looking for something we can use out back during cookouts!
I’d use it while working outside! =)
My hubby would use it for his ipod- and while getting ready (shower and deciding what to wear) – Yup, he likes doing what I did in my teenage years lol! I would take it on my daily stroll to the park with my babe in stroller, and when its warm again, to the beach!
i’d use it to stream music into the kitchen when i’m cooking
I would use it for cookouts on the deck, gardening, bathtime, baking in the kitchen and for flash mobbing *just kidding I can’t dance or have any sense of rhythm*
I would use it in the garage
I would use it at the beach with friends, or when we’re on the balcony and other speakers are far away 🙂
I would mount it on my wheelchair and use it on walk with my dog!
At work! I work in a kitchen and our speaker broke so this would be just the thing to give my staff their groove back hahaha
I’ve actually been looking for a small bluetooth speaker that I could use in the bathroom because I love to listen to audiobooks in the morning when I’m getting dressed and made up. This sounds like it would be perfect.
I would use it in the car, the park, the lake, and while camping! This would be super convenient!
Picnics! So many times I wish I had some sort of easy way to play music out there!
I have a back room where you cannot hear anything from the rest of the place since it’s near a freeway! I’d love to actually hear music in that room and it would mask the traffic sounds too. Thanks for the giveaway!
On the dock of the bay.
To my physical therapy sessions.

I would use it for dance sessions with my granddaughters.
I would use it in my craft room and my son would use it on his bike and in his room. I can see this traveling quite a bit. Thanks!
I’d use it when I’m gardening outside. Or traveling in my car because my speakers don’t work very well.
Great to use while working out.

I’d give it to my husband so he could use it while biking and while taking the baby for walks.
