I do hope you're able to find something that fits your specific needs, but as for me and my house, the clear choice is Marshall's Kilburn. I've always been a fan of the products created by Marshall and this speaker is no different. What pulled me in was the company's ability to fit its classic sophistication into such a beautiful and lightweight design. Plus, the price is pretty sweet too.

Another option is the budget-friendly Ultimate Ears Boom 3. Ultimate Ears is a trusted name in the portable speaker game and for a good reason. The Boom 3 offers excellent sound at an affordable price, and the speaker's design is durable enough for your outside adventures while also looking good enough to sit center stage in any room. It's also super easy to link multiple compatible speakers to amplify your favorite jams.
