Turn up the vol­ume

There’s only so much fun you can have lis­ten­ing to mu­sic from your phone … un­less you add a pow­er­ful, por­ta­ble speaker to the mix, Rod Ch­ester re­ports

TREVOLO BENQ

The TreVolo stands out in both ap­pear­ance and struc­ture. It’s a small, wedge­shaped speaker that will fit in a cor­ner, but the two side flaps fold out to fill a room with sound. Th­ese fea­tures will ap­peal to those look­ing for more than just a ba­sic speaker.

BENQ / $399 / BENQ.COM.AU SU­PER M NUDEAUDIO

The large ver­sion of the Su­per M is about the size of a pocket tran­sis­tor ra­dio, but in­fin­itely cooler. It has an IPX5 rat­ing so it’s OK to take into the shower. A sil­i­con bumper sleeve protects from knocks and dou­bles as a phone speaker and although it’s small it de­liv­ers sound qual­ity close to oth­ers on this page.

NUDEAUDIO / $149 / NUDEAUDIO.COM.AU MIRA BRAVEN

If you’re a shower singer, this is the speaker for you. The Mira has a rub­ber cover over its ports and an IPX5 wa­ter rat­ing that means it’s just the thing to hang off a tap. Leave your phone in an­other room and con­trol mu­sic and vol­ume with the large but­tons around the cir­cu­lar face.
