Speakers are a must-have for music buffs, preferably the portable ones that can be carried around as you travel. However, choosing the right one can be a daunting task given the sheer variety on offer. From its design to their size and shape, each speaker makes a statement of its own. Mentioned here are a few of the more popular speakers currently available to help you decide better.

Creative iRoar : $149.99

It comes across as a nice all-rounded package with incredible sound clarity while being rich in features. There are lots of connectivity options too with the provision to an external subwoofer as well. However, at $149.99, it isn’t exactly cheap and is not weather resistant either.


Jam Heavy Metal HX-P920 : $99.99

Excellent sound clarity need not come at a price as the Jam Heavy Metal comes across as an affordable alternative to many of its bigger priced alternatives. Crafted out of metal, the Jam Heavy Metal costs just $99.99 and offers about 8 hours of battery life.


JBL Clip 2 : $49.95

Perhaps the best thing with the new JBL Clip 2 is its size. It is a small enough to fit into your palm but still manages to impress with the sound quality. It also comes with an integrated lithium ion rechargeable battery that can support 7 hours of usage. What’s more, JBL Clip 2 is waterproof too, which means you can have fun in the rains as well. However, at $49.95, maybe it’s a tad on the higher side but then that’s subjective.


UE Boom 2 : $199.99

Sporting an eye catching design, the UE Boom 2 is another one to boast of a waterproof build. It comes with 15 hours of battery life though at $199.99, the UE Boom 2 isn’t the cheapest around. However, the sound quality can more than compensate for that.

Bose SoundLink Mini II : $199.95

The Bose SoundLink Mini II might have diminutive looks but can still outclass many of its bigger rivals with its excellent sound output. Sporting a sleek design, the SoundLink Mini II also boasts of superb build quality that is typical of any Bose unit. However, all of that comes for a price which stands at $199.95.

Fugoo : $179.99

Designed to support 40 hours of usage, the Fugoo is one speaker that is there for the long haul. However, the runtime mentioned is applicable when you are listening on medium volume. And if you like listening to loud music, battery time gets halved. In any case, the sound quality is so good that you will be tempted to jack up the volume anyway. Cost wise, it is another one to sell for $179.99.


Harman Infinity One : $299.95

The Harman Infinity One is not just about its attention grabbing design but is also of substance of equal measure. At $299.95, it surely isn’t the cheapest around but more than makes up for that with its brilliant sound. The 10 hours’ worth of battery will also ensure you get to listen enough music at each go. That’s not all as the Infinity One also boasts of niche feature such as NFC connectivity, USB charging and such.
