Introduction

I first encountered the EGO Waterproof Sound Case at CES in Las Vegas. I was actually trying to figure out where I was in the massive convention center when Ron Lien, the marketing manager of Atlantic asked if I would like to see their new products. The display that really caught my eye was an iPod speaker soundcase in a sealed bowl with water spraying over it.
