These days, most of us carry our music collection, or at least some of it, around with us on a smartphone or tablet. Alternatively, you might use any number of music streaming services including Spotify, Pandora or Google Play Music.
Portable speaker systems come in handy in a variety of situations, because they can be used for work or for recreation. They are a great way to listen to liven up a party or picnic as you can keep hold of your device and control music playback, while enjoying louder, higher-quality sound than its internal speaker could ever provide. One of the best things about this type of speaker is that music can be taken to places where it was never able to go before.
One of the hallmarks of a good portable speaker is, of course, portability. Just because a speaker can run on batteries doesn't mean it's easy to carry around.
Business travelers generally need something extremely portable yet capable of producing enough sound to fill a small hotel room or reach the back of a conference room. Portable speakers are small without sacrificing sound quality. Even with their compact size and easy portability, they're designed with built-in amplifiers to deliver full-range audio whenever you want.
