This small speaker might not have the sound qual­ity of a home sys­tem but what it lacks in power it makes up for with rugged ap­peal. With an IPX7 wa­ter­proof rat­ing, this speaker will sur­vive a dunk in the pool and fea­tures a screw-in plug to keep its charg­ing port cov­ered. It will even float. The speaker comes with a bike mount, or you could prop it in the shower. You con­nect it with Blue­tooth and it dou­bles as a speak­er­phone. The Aquajam is a speaker for those who re­ally do want to take their mu­sic any­where.


Many Blue­tooth speak­ers look alike. This one looks like it should be at the feet of a hip­ster busker. It is only 22cm long but the Lib­er­ate BT has plenty of big-speaker style. Its front is an alu­minium grill, with a bam­boo panel on its back, and its body is cov­ered in ma­te­rial made from hemp, or­ganic cot­ton and re­cy­cled plas­tic bot­tles. The sound qual­ity re­flects the qual­ity of work­man­ship in this small but pow­er­ful speaker, with an eight-hour bat­tery life and speak­er­phone ca­pa­bil­ity.
