This portable Bluetooth speaker is small enough to take almost anywhere, yet gets loud enough to fill a medium-sized room without distortion, even when you crank it up all the way. It'll work with just about any Bluetooth-compatible device (including most smartphones and tablets) and includes a standard headphone jack for wired connections. While it's more expensive than most Bluetooth speakers, and doesn't include a speakerphone, the Bose SoundLink is a great way to free your iTunes or Spotify playlists from your phone's tiny speaker.
