Amazon's Cyber Monday deals have already begun, and this price drop for the Bose Portable Smart Speaker is well worth a look.
Portable speakers have come a long way from the tinny sounds of a few years ago, and now offer huge, room-filling audio that let you take the party with you.
Even better, Bose remains at the forefront of audio tech, and has added Alexa functionality to this portable speaker to give it smarts when you're at home.
Take it away from the Wi-Fi, though, and this durable speaker has 12 hours of battery life, meaning you can share all of your Holiday favorites wherever you are.
As part of Amazon's Cyber Monday deal, you can save $50 off of the MSRP, bringing it down to $349.99.
This Bose speaker brings the noise home or away
Bose Portable Smart Speaker |
$399, $349 at Amazon
A compact smart speaker with Alexa voice control functionality while at home, this Bose speaker can be taken on the go, too, with 12 hours of battery life and its own carry handle.
It’s not the lowest price we’ve seen it (it’s dropped by $100 before), but it’s still worth a look if you’re going to be pumping out the Christmas songs throughout December.
The Bose Portable Smart Speaker may sound like an oxymoron since smart speakers tend to be stationary, but it’s great whether you’re relaxing at home or taking it to a friend’s house or outdoor gathering.
That’s because while at home, it can offer Alexa smart speaker functionality so you can queue your next track, album, or playlist up using your voice. When you’re away from the house, it can be carried with its attached handle, and there’s an impressive 12 hour battery life.
It also offers both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, so you can play your music through it however you please, even when there’s no network. The Bose Portable Smart Speaker is durable, too, with IPX4 water resistant rating and a rugged construction to help protect against drops and knocks.
