Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Just had by ever trusty Beats Pill pack up on me.
Was looking for something of similar size and if it had an inbuilt mic for calls that would be a plus.

Any suggestions?

The new Sonos Roam is meant to be impressive but I don't think you can use it as a speaker phone.

I don't have one yet but I do have a pair of One's and an Arc and if it's to the same standard you can't go wrong.

Itís on the list but it looks a little too nice to be banged around outside and a little big for me.
I have a Sonos beam and itís fantastic, love the quality.

I did see a B&O beosound explore which looks like a smaller more durable speaker, with quite a bit of power.


I also like the B&O A1 which looks like the bigger brother, but like the Sonos feels a little bigger and nicer to take out and about.

Other option is a UE Boom 3

I have a Roam and have been very impressed. The Megaboom 3 is good, but a lot bigger.

Not sure what you want to spend, but I heard a Bang and Olufsen Beosound 2 the other day, and covet it. 250 euros, though.

I bought a Wonderboom 2 last summer for the garden with some vouchers I had.

For a speaker that I don't mind being bashed about and stick in a bag if going anywhere, I'm very impressed with the quality.

No issue with that, I might have a middle class weekend and pop into John Lewis with my iphone and some Journey to test out speakers.

Not sure which Beaosound you saw

I think it also floats.
I like the simplicity of it.

I almost one a very small/portable one that can be carried with easy, i.e. in my Doris' handbag and then a slightly bigger one for home/parties.
