Most portable speakers look like, well, speakers. The Vifa Copenhagen Speaker looks like furniture. Maybe even better than most furniture, thanks to its matte aluminum frame, woven textile cover from Kvadrat, and embroidered volume buttons. And it sounds better than most, too, thanks to digital pure path amps, balanced woofers, and Bluetooth + WiFi, which allows it to support AirPlay, Bluetooth aptX, DLNA, optical, analog, and USB connections.
When going to buy a wireless speaker, you normally have to pick your format. Do you want an Airplay speaker? Bluetooth? How about one that streams straight from Spotify? Well, with the Nocs NS2 Air Monitors V2, you don't have to choose, because they support all three. In addition to being a wireless audio dynamo, the V2 also features a sleek, minimal design, a hand-built, rubber-coated MDF cabinet, 3-inch Kevlar-reinforced woofers, and silk dome tweeters. But the best part is what they don't feature: a bunch of wires running all over your house.
Enjoy great sound wherever you are this summer with the Braven Mira Speaker. Designed with portability in mind, this puck-shaped system features a built-in multi-purpose hook that lets you either stand or hang the speaker, as well as on-board volume and track controls, IPX5 water resistance for aquatic adventures, the ability to act as a speakerphone, an auxiliary input for non-Bluetooth audio sources, and a surprisingly stout battery that provides up to 10 hours of playtime for all-day excursions.
Upgrade your desktop audio experience — and likely the looks of your work area — by picking up a pair of Polk Hampden Speakers. This little system packs a big punch thanks to each of the 1" silk/polymer tweeters and 4.5" woofers being powered by its own dedicated amplifier. It also uses a USB input to bypass your computer's built-in DAC in favor of its own, and should you want to play something from another source, it supports Bluetooth with apt-X for wireless streaming. The solid enclosures wrapped in teak veneer? Just icing on the loud, clear cake.
