Portable Bluetooth speakers are a great way to liven up the atmosphere thanks to their ability to offer sound performance that your phone simply cannot match. Just like your phone, these portable speakers include rechargeable batteries so you can simply throw them into your bag, and some even include microphones for hands-free control.

We love the Soundcore Flare Mini as it offers not just great sound through its 360-degree sound, but also for all of its extras. A built-in array of LED lights can be the life of the party indoors and out, and a rechargeable 12-hour battery ensures that you will never be left without your tunes.

Looking for a speaker that provides rich bass but can also fit into the palm of your hand? Then the Sony SRS-XB12 Portable Wireless Speaker is the one for you. This colorful, compact speaker can go just about anywhere with IPX67 weather resistance that protects it from dust and water.
