The top of the line speaker from Sonos is the Sonos PLAY:5, and it’s pretty fantastic. In fact, it’s one of the best wireless speakers out there, no question. That said, it’s kind of annoying that with Sonos, you’re limited as far as what sources you can stream music from. The PLAY:5 also isn’t portable, so you can’t take it with you outside or when you travel. Come to think of it, there are some other limitations too — it only has six drivers, it’s not rugged, and you can’t control all of its features with your voice.
Check this out: the FUGOO Sport XL Portable Rugged Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker sports eight drivers, it’s waterproof, it’s rugged, it integrates with Siri, and you can stream anything and everything you want to it. And best of all, it’s on sale right now through April 9 for about half the price of a $500 PLAY:5.
Here are some key details from the product page:
- 360 degree sound with 8 symmetrically placed drivers crank out clean highs, midrange punches and deep, roaring lows. 4 tweeters, 2 mid/sub drivers, 2 passive radiators and a 97 db. sound pressure level, the CORE-X fills produces rich audio.
