Great Sounding Portable Audio


This month is all about portable audio and the ability to listen on the go. With so many options out there, it can be tough to choose the right product. To help you get the most for your money, we’ve decided to highlight a few stand-out portable speaker options that not only sound exceptional, but also have some enticing extra features.
What Is Bluetooth?

It’s hard to talk portable without mentioning ubiquitous Bluetooth connectivity. Bluetooth 
is the name for the standardized wireless connection between two devices. It gives you the ability to wirelessly stream the audio from your device (computer, tablet, phone, iPod, etc.) to a speaker, without the use of an additional application or password. Simply turn on both components, pair up, and play!
Generally speaking, portable bluetooth products have an effective range of 30-35 feet from the audio source and a battery life upwards of 5 hours. Some Bluetooth devices focus more on portability, some want to be the toughest, and some are just about sound quality! Here are our picks for the winners in each category,  


Bang & Olufsen have come up with a sleek, travel ready, balanced sounding portable bluetooth speaker that looks as good as it sounds. The Beoplay P2 features an anodized, pearl-blasted aluminium grill and features a leather strap for stylish portability. It weighs just 275 grams, and the charge lasts for an outstanding 10 hours. The Beoplay P2 is also perfect for making hands-free calls on your computer or phone.  The sound quality can be adjusted for variables such as room placement with the excellent B&O app. Ideal for the traveller.

The most beautiful option on our list is the Beoplay A1, also from Bang & Olufsen. This is the ideal speaker choice for those wanting to bring their music with them through all of their ventures.  It boasts 24 hours of battery life, speaker phone abilities, with True360 sound in an attractive aluminum case. It’s nice to have a great sounding speaker that's made tough so you don’t have to worry about it. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 exemplifies what a durable, stylish bluetooth speaker should be.


Where sound is concerned, the Xtreme 2 by JBL is the definition of portable luxury. What makes it one of the best sounding portable Bluetooth speakers available on the market is the inclusion of dual passive bass radiators, producing the ear-catching JBL sound resonating clearly. It also carries an IPX7 waterproof rating! In addition, the Xtreme 2 features a rechargeable 10,000mAh Li-ion battery. Together with JBL Connect+ it can wirelessly link more than 100 JBL Connect+ enabled speakers to elevate your listening experience and making the party even bigger.
