The Sonos Play:5 wireless speaker is fantastic, as long as you’re willing to cough up some serious cash. At $500, it’s a serious investment — and remember, it can only play music from supported services! If you’re looking for another option that sounds almost as good but costs less than half as much, definitely check out the FUGOO Sport XL Portable Rugged Waterproof Wireless Speaker. It packs four tweeters, two mid woofers, and two passive radiators that combine to deliver some serious sound. Toss in 35 hours of playback per charge and waterproofing, and you’ve got yourself a winner.
Here are some highlights from the product page:
