There are plenty of cute, colorful, & compact wireless speakers out there but if you want one that’s going to deliver superior sound, the new Bose SoundLink Mini is probably the one. Why? Proven Bose sound & a 7-hour battery.
Just the facts: Wireless bluetooth speaker. Dual pairing stereo capability. 12 hour battery life. 1000 day warranty. The Blazar is available in a brushed aluminum & deep graphite finish as well as limited edition artist collab colorways from bands that make car commercial music. Good colors though: navy blue, gold, & neon yellow.
Quality materials make the difference. The foldable MS 500 is built from machined aluminum and features leather trim & padding on the earphone. It’s also fitted with tangle-free cloth OFC cables that deliver a 99.9% pure signal to the 44mm drivers plus there’s an input on each side giving you the choice of left or right cable connection.
The Relay Hi-Fi wireless receiver connects all your Bluetooth smart devices to your existing stereo setup, so you can DJ from your phone, tablet, or laptop with content stored on any device or streaming from the cloud without ever having to switch sources. Party Pairing technology also lets your friends play their music through the Relay.

The Anakonda can also be daisy-chained to additional units, allowing you to go to great lengths (get it?) with this versatile, go-anywhere style speaker. Available exclusively in the US through authorized Sennheiser dealers. via
