Have you ever really listened to the Beatles? I mean sat down and paid attention to every note and nuance of the melody?

At this price, it's a no-brainer. How no-brainer-y? Over 143,000 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 isn't the lowest price we've seen for this portable speaker, but it's still way less expensive than the ones of comparable quality, which can go for $100 and 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:

Shoppers swear by its long battery life (up to 14 hours) and easy setup. "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 just under a month ago and somehow 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, linked it to my phone and she worked like a charm. It may not be the loudest or clearest speaker but she's built like a Sherman Tank. 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 a final 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!!"

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

One happy shopper says, "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."
