As the sun starts to hit the sky with greater regularity, many of you will be digging out your shorts and dusting off the old grill for a celebratory cookout — and what’s a cookout without music?

Thanks to Highsnobiety’s very own Commerce Content Curator Nigel Minani, you’ll soon be able to blast your playlists with his uncontestable list of must-cop portable wireless loudspeakers. Long gone are the days of fiddling with cables and ports — now just get the party going in a second, no matter the location. Among Nigel’s selection are speakers by BOSE and Ultimate Ears alongside nifty technology from Bang & Olufsen and JBL.

Whether you’re chilling to old-school R&B jams or keeping up with the sounds of the day, Nigel and Highsnobiety have you covered. Check out our list below.

Come out and ’play



B&O Play

Buy at amazon

Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay P6 is both powerful and classy, and definitely a top choice for any summer gathering. In fact, this piece happens to be Nigel’s favorite design, and we can see why. The oblong speaker is constructed from aluminum and is both scratchproof and water resistant. B&O’s True360 Signature Sound is both big and subtle, and the unit boasts stable wireless connectivity. And if all that wasn’t enough, the Beoplay P6 is also compatible with Google Assistant and Siri, and will keep going for up to 16 hours of non-stop play.

Boss it with BOSE

SoundLink Revolve



Buy at amazon

BOSE is far from a novice when it comes to the audio game, and many of you will have copped the BOSE SoundLink Revolve already. And with good reason. The SoundLink Revolve may look like Darth Vadar’s pepper mill, but its audio output is far clearer than the Imperial Sith Lord. This epic speaker delivers 360° sound and maintains its wireless connection from up to 30 feet away. And when paired with a second unit, you can double your oomph through its party mode or opt for a conventional stereo mode. Either way, the force is strong with this one.

Get Creative




Buy at amazon

For those hitting the beach, the colorful and compact Creative MUVO 2c box is exactly what you’re looking for. While its six-hour battery life pales when compared with the rest of the list, you can take this lightweight palm-sized critter pretty much anywhere, given its size and durability. The waterproof outer shell protects its built-in mp3 player, which can read thousands of songs via microSD, and you can pair two units together for a sonic boost. Plus, it’s the most affordable option on the list.

BOOM! Shake the room



Ultimate Ears

Buy at amazon

To say the Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 is durable is an understatement – it’s both waterproof and shock-resistant. If your parties are likely to get lit, this might be the speaker to consider. Expect 360° sound and wireless play from up to 100 feet away. The BOOM 2 is also Google Assistant- and Siri-compatible, as well as with UE’s very own BOOM app. Once connected, users can use their smart device to connect to more than 150 Ultimate Ears speakers — if you happen to have that many to hand. And all this for under $120.

Keep your finger on the Pulse

Pulse 3



Buy at amazon

JBL boasts of “sound you can see,” and upon testing out the Pulse 3, we get what the company is saying. In what looks like a nu-school lava lamp, this Bluetooth speaker creates a 360° light show to match its incredible 360° sound. What’s more, the Pulse 3 can connect with other like-minded speakers, creating, in effect, your very own sonic light show. Be it at home, at a picnic, or on the beach under the stars, this waterproof speaker will create an ambiance from dusk till dawn.
