When 130,000+ people rave about a $25 portable speaker, we listen

Great tunes anywhere, anytime: The angled Bluetooth mini is water-resistant and sounds incredible. Grab it while it's nearly 50% off.

There are literally thousands of Bluetooth speakers on the market, but if you spend even a few minutes reading through the specs and customer reviews, you'll soon realize many of them would make a better sound hitting the bottom of a trash can. Of course, a super low price can be an indicator of poor quality, but there's usually a little more to it than that. That's why we've opted to do the hard work for you by finding a speaker that fits the bill for high-quality sound, portability and an affordable price point.

This portable Bluetooth speaker is on sale for just $25, down from $40 — that's nearly 40% off. At this price, it's a no-brainer. In fact, more than 130,000 Amazon shoppers gave it a five-star rating — no easy feat. And why not? The audio is crisp, the bass is deep and it just looks cool.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

At $25 this is one of the lowest prices we've seen for this portable speaker, and it's way less expensive than the ones of comparable quality, which can go for $100 or more.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Thanks to magical Bluetooth, this little guy works up to 100 feet away from your device. With 10+ watts of power, this thing is LOUD — so feel free to use it outside when the weather warms up. It's only 10 ounces, so it won't weigh down your tote. And it's splash-proof, too — which means you can bring it into the shower with you and play music loud enough that no one can hear you singing along to The Doobie Brothers.

This pint-sized speaker comes in 10 different colors/patterns — and a clip-on version — including unique ones like Golf Green (although prices vary slightly from color to color.) You can find the right aesthetic to fit whatever you're doing, whether that's teeing up for your best game yet or, you know, visiting the Coca-Cola Museum.

What reviewers say 💬

Over 130,000 shoppers swear by its long battery life (up to 14 hours) and easy setup.

Pros 👍

"This speaker is a perfect size for a desktop," raved a five-star reviewer. "I listen to Van Halen all day, every day at work. The charge will last a couple weeks before I need to plug it up. Great device for the little amount it costs."

This shopper gave a thorough report: "We were out for a winter ride and lost the speaker on our adventure. It had been run over and pushed in the mud a bit. Once we got home I grabbed the speaker and went to toss it in the garbage, but curiosity took over and I plugged it in the charger overnight. The next morning I hit the power button and she lit up like the 4th of July...She was tossed out in the cold, buried alive, and still came back from the dead to give us sweet tunes on the trail!"

Adds another fan: "Nothing to dislike about this speaker. Great sound, use it outdoors for get-togethers, at the beach, inside, wherever. It's great! Has lasted quite a few years so far. Purchased a similar brand-name speaker that cost me over $100 and puts this one to shame and has lasted so much longer! Definitely recommend!!"

Cons 👎

Some shoppers said the sound quality could be improved.

Some shoppers felt you get what you pay for in terms of sound. "I didn't expect the sound quality of Panasonic and what I received was very likely worth the price," said one. "After a few days, I decided this was not quite what I wanted to live with. Again, the speaker, for the price is not a bad deal."

Agreed another: "Even though I got this on sale I ended up returning it as I thought the sound was not great. Sound is really subjective so look at other reviews re: that, but I will say that the build quality is great, it charges and connects quickly with no drama and I'm sure customer service is good with OontZ."

Portable design and booming sound — what more do you need from a speaker?

And if you're in the mood for affordable earbuds, Tozo's got 'em for just $30.

Comparable to much more expensive earbuds, Tozo T9s have passive noise canceling and deep bass. They're also water-resistant enough to stand up to a bit of sweat or rain.

This is music to one shopper's ears: "These earbuds are in a league of their own compared to my second-generation AirPods. If you like music with bass then these are ideal. I'm shocked at the sound quality and how much power they produce. Super comfortable, set them up in 30 seconds, boom! The case and headphones are very light and certainly not on Apple's level when it comes to design, but I will never buy AirPods again — 100% recommend."
