The Sony XB01 speaker features a splash-proof design that makes it a good pick to bring outdoors or use in the shower. Its rechargeable built-in battery can last for up to six hours of playback on a single charge. There's also an integrated microphone so you can take calls hands-free while your phone is elsewhere.

With this speaker's built-in carrying strap, you can tie it to a bag or hang it easily. There are controls on the top that allow you to adjust its volume, power it on and off, and answer calls. A microUSB cable is included with its purchase to keep it charged up, though to really make sure you can listen to it whenever you want, it'd be wise to keep a portable power bank around as well. You can find one worth picking up in this guide to the best power banks under $30. Then again, if you have more devices that need charged as well, this guide to the best portable high-capacity power banks is filled with more suitable options.
