This elegantly styled unit looks as good as it sounds.  Its ultra-portable weighing in at just over 1 pound and it kicks out some good sound. It has six drivers on four sides for a 360-degree sweet spot. With its Core-X technology the path from your music files to the amplifier that drives the speakers is digital, all the way. Meaning cell phone interference is less likely to occur. The built-in omnidirectional microphone gives your speaker high-quality full-duplex speakerphone functionality.  On top of all of this the Fugoo is also waterproof, mudproof, snow and shockproof. It can last up to 40 hours on a single charge.

This cool looking product resembles a capsule.  The BOOM is also a 360 degree speaker that kicks out some bold immersive sound in every direction.  Its sound is pretty agile and can play from Nina Simone up to Red Plastic Bag.  You can also download its free iOS/Android app that adds some nifty features. The main highlight is that you can link two BOOM speakers together and get a bigger better sound. The BOOM has a tough sturdy construction with a “plasma coated” finish that’s water and stain resistant.  On a full charge it lasts for 15 hours. Bluetooth pairing is fast and easy, and you can connect via NFC.  It can also double up as a speakerphone.

If you want to talk hardcore in the literal sense, the Incipio Technologies Braven BRV-1 wireless speaker takes the cake. It comes in two colour options (Turquoise Blue and Orange Relief). This ruggedized unit is water resistant and is built for outdoors and can take a few drops.  The speaker sounds good, maybe not on the same level as others but enough to get the vibe going. It has dual 3W speakers (6 watts total) with a bottom port for bass resonance.  It can be used as an external 1400mAh battery pack and also has a speakerphone. Rechargeable battery will power the speaker for about 12 hours at lower volumes – at peak volumes it will be less.
