Sonos Play Speakers

Although slightly different in design, what they all have in common is superior sound.

Beats Pill+ Speaker

The new Beats Pill+ is a nicely designed mid-range Bluetooth speaker that sports a smooth build and features a stereo active 2-way crossover system for optimized sound across all genres of music. Although the drivers inside are somewhat smaller, the neodymium magnets surrounding them allow for powerful sound output you'd expect to hear from larger sized speakers. The simple interface of the Beats Pill+ offers the ability to skip tracks, play or pause, adjust volume, and even use it as a speakerphone. It's charged using a Lightning cable (included) instead of a traditional Micro-USB, providing approximately 12 hours of battery life a medium volume level. This slightly beefy speaker sounds great and has a unique look that fits nicely in just about any environment.

Grain Audio PWS.01 Bluetooth Speaker

While there are thousands of Bluetooth speakers that lack style and sound quality, this is one exception that sounds as good as it looks. The PWS.01 from Grain Audio packs two 2-inch loudspeakers and a passive radiator that uses a bass isolation system to keep the overall mix crisp, thick, and most importantly — clear. Its beautiful walnut enclosure is matched with a rubber edging that keeps the speaker from sliding around while rocking out. On a full charge the PWS.01 is good for up to 8 hours and even includes a handy mesh carrying bag for travel.
