NYNE may not be a well-known name in the portable speaker market, but they give Logitech and Jambox a run for the money with the NB-250, which 9to5Mac says offers "better sound quality than the smaller Boombox and Jambox offerings," with "surprisingly full and accurate lows." Despite the NB-250's compact form, it "has no issues filling a room," and Cult of Mac says the "speakers are pretty loud for their small size." It's a little bigger than the Big Jambox or UE Boombox, but you won't mind carrying it around, as 9to5Mac says it feels "lighter than you’d expect, but nothing about it feels cheap," making it perfect for parties, picnics, or any other situation where you need a small(ish) speaker that packs a punch.

Nyne’s new NB-250 portable speaker is a modern update on the venerable boombox: portable and loud. But it’s a lot smaller and more discreet than a boombox of old.

The NB-250 is weatherproof, can withstand water splashing, and comes with a very handy carrying case with a shoulder strap that makes carrying the speaker easy and convenient, whether you’re on a trip to the beach, organizing a family picnic, or just walking around your favorite fishing hole.
