It’s rugged and waterproof and the cylindrical design provides 360-degree sound for as much as 12 hours. Great for camping and poolside parties. Costs Rs 6,999.

Bose Soundlink Micro

This is more of a singles’ buddy that you can clip to your backpack or your clothes on your solo treks. As a personal Bluetooth speaker that you don’t have place in or over the ears, it lets you enjoy music while still staying aware of your surroundings. Being a Bose, this tiny boom box is priced at Rs 8,999.

Don’t want to spend quite so much? Pick the JBL Clip 3, niftily crafted to look like a lock, for just Rs 2,299.

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom

Truly wireless, one of its great features is you don’t have to be stuck to it. It has a wireless range of 100 feet. And you can pair two of them for great stereo sound for your barbeque nights and picnics. Small and easily portable with great volume and clarity, it’s priced at Rs 4,499.
