Once upon a time, a mini Bluetooth speaker was something only wealthy people could afford. But these days, you can get a quality Bluetooth speaker for a decent price. Even better, a top-rated Sony speaker is marked half off on Amazon—but only for today.
It’s called the Sony SRS-XB12 Mini Bluetooth Speaker, and it’s just $30 right now (marked down from $60). For the record: While this speaker may have “mini” in its name, there’s nothing small about the sound quality and volume it puts out.
This little speaker is infused with extra loud bass so you can really get a driving beat going, whether you’re using it outside or in your home. It’s also fully portable—just use the detachable strap to carry it with you. You can even it hang it from your bag to get quality sound while you walk or hike.
The SRS-XB12 is even waterproof and dust-proof, so you can tote it to the pool, beach or trail without stressing about damage.
And, while reviewers rave about its volume and sound quality, you can upgrade the audio by wirelessly connecting two of these babies for stereo sound if you really want to make some noise.
Some wireless speakers have gotten flack for their crummy battery life, but this is not one of them: The SRS-XB12 can pump out music for up to 16 hours on one charge. “It takes 3 hours to fully charge from dead, but it lasts for days,” one happy customer wrote, noting that the speaker is also durable.
Another five-star reviewer said that the battery life is “very good,” adding that “This speaker far exceeded my expectations. The sound quality is amazing. The volume can be cranked up very loud.”
Tend to be a little rough with your tech? The SRS-XB12 can handle it. “It dropped out of the golf cart yesterday (my fault) and I drove directly over it on the cart path. It kept playing the entire time. It's a tough little thing,” one five-star reviewer wrote.
With these pretty shades, that sound quality and this ridiculous price, this speaker is perfect for the music-lover on your list. Or you—definitely you.
