Location and usage guidelines

You can use your speaker just about anywhere. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Waterproof design

Roam has an IP67 rating—it’s dustproof and waterproof and can be submerged 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. If Roam gets saturated with water, you can dry it off this way:

  1. Flush Roam with tap water, then give it a quick shake.

  2. Place the speaker vertically for a few seconds until it drains, then place it face down (logo side down) on a dry towel for a few minutes.

  3. Start playing some audio to assist with drainage.

Note:Don’t play audio when Roam is immersed in water.

Automatic Trueplay

Auto Trueplay tuning optimizes the sound for wherever you are and whatever you’re listening to. Your speaker’s microphone is used to detect the environment so auto Trueplay can make periodic tuning adjustments to deliver the best sound.

Microphone on/off

The microphone is used for voice control, and for automatic Trueplay tuning. Press ALL_mic00006.png to turn the microphone on or off—the microphone LED light will let you know when your voice assistant is listening.
