We all wear headphones to enjoy our music politely in the train, the bus, or other public spaces, but when you’re entertaining a crowd at the beach, tailgating with friends, or hosting the neighborhood wide block party, bring the tunes with a Bluetooth enabled speaker. With a carefully curated playlist and a fully charged smartphone you can keep the party going all day.

Versatile and highly reviewed, the JBL Flip 4 makes a splash in a saturated market. With an IPX 7 rating, it’s more water resistant than most of its competitors, and reviewers love its durability.
“The Flip 4 is unlike most speakers $100 and under. This speaker will not lose sound quality at max volume nor will it get distorted with bass heavy tracks. Even when under water, the sound will not suffer, it actually seems to increase your bass.” Pair with NFC devices with a tap, or follow the audible step by step guide to bluetooth pair. A proprietary app allows linking speakers for an enhanced, amplified listening experience.

The built in mic allows voice controls, so tell Siri that you’d like to hear a different playlist, and it’s easy to make a hands free change. Reviewers love how well the Bose Soundlink travels, saying, “The sound is amazing, and I love the fact that this newer model is much more waterproof than the one I have. It’s perfect for the beach, or for picnics, outdoor overall.” The rechargeable Lithium battery keeps going for 8 hours, and micro usb charging means it’s easy to recharge from a car adapter or portable battery pack. Pick up one of the vibrant colors like aqua or coral and never worry about blending in to the sea of plain, unobtrusive speakers on the market.
