While thinking about the hot weekend ahead (it’s set to be 36 degrees in some parts of the U.K.), we spotted this portable wireless speaker from Wonderboom, which is on sale. It’s now half price — £45, down from £90.
We first heard about the speaker from music producer Dan Weller when we spoke to experts about the best speakers. Weller, who has produced tracks for raucous bands like Gallows, Young Guns, and Babymetal, said that despite the size it delivered in terms of sound quality. “It’s the only speaker I use,” he says. “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.”
A few things we like about this speaker: It’s got a ten-hour battery, making it perfect to take to the park. It’s also waterproof, just in case you spill an Aperol over it. The Bluetooth capabilities mean you can also connect multiple speakers for surround sound (in case you plan on spending a lot of this weekend outdoors).
