1. Bose Soundlink Mini 2 Bluetooth Speaker Wireless Speaker
Don't let the 2015 model fall on deaf ear; the Soundlink Mini 2 remains one of the best sounding speakers in the market. While it lacks a waterproof feature and no NFC for pairing, the lightweight speaker (0.7kg) fits in the palm of your hands and is easy to lug around in a bag.
Its battery life is rated to last up to 10 hours of play, however, there are other models that surpassed that, like the JBL Charge 3, which lasts up to 20 hours.
While it's got some light features, the Soundlink Mini 2 packs a mean bass sound quality, without distortion. This was my first portable speaker (aah, memories), before I switched to Bang & Olufsen's Beoplay6.
2. JBL Charge 5
The JBL Charge 5 has an optimised long-excursion driver, a separate tweeter, and dual JBL bass radiators, to deliver rich and clear audio. Best of all, the speaker is IP67 waterproof and dust-proof, so you can bring your speaker anywhere, everywhere.
On top of its 20-hour battery life feature, the speaker allows you to connect up to two smartphones to allow you and your friend to be DJs for the night.
3. Sony SRS-XB13 Portable Speaker
Don't be fooled by its small package; the Sony SRS-XB13 is both durable and comes with great sound. It comes with a specially engineered strap that allows you to travel with it easily.
With any Sony speaker, the SRS-XB13 is also well-known for its audio system. Equipped with the SOund Diffusion Processor, sound is 'expanded' in space with its DSP technology and the bass quality isn't compromised on this one. All in all, a definite good buy!
4. Tribit Stormbox Speakers
You may not have heard of Tribit but their Stormbox speakers packs a punch! Furthermore, its sleek shape makes it easy for you to carry around, and it even comes with a fun button for added bass boost.
The Stormbox is both IPX7 waterproof and dustproof – so you can lug it to the river or mountains as your music companion. Plus, with its 20-hour battery life, you'll never run out of good tunes!
