When we asked eight audio experts for their recommendations for the best home speaker, the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom was their pick for the best portable speaker. For music producer Dan Weller, who has produced tracks for raucous bands like Gallows, Young Guns, and Babymetal and is himself a guitarist in prog-rock outfit SikTh, it’s his number-one choice. “It’s the only speaker I use,” he says of the Wonderboom. “I take it everywhere I go, and I regularly use it in the studio when I’m hanging out with the artists or listening to their demos.”
The dinky speaker is about 10cm tall, has a ten-hour battery life, and is waterproof to boot. What’s more, it’s currently on sale for almost 50 percent off, down to £48 from £90.
