editor's pick: 808 audio wireless speaker

By: Elaine Song

Earlier this year I was on the hunt for the perfect speaker that would work for my small bachelorette apartment, but also be transportable on my travels all year round. Most of the speakers I looked at before were fantastic products from reliable brands, but they were a bit out of my price range. There were also concerns that investing in an expensive speaker would make me hesitant about traveling with it on snowboarding trips or taking it to the park or the beach.   808-hex-xl-speaker  There were a few essentials I looked for in finding the right speaker for my needs: - Bluetooth-enabled - Lightweight/easily portable - Great sound quality indoors and outdoors - Rechargeable - The right price   Ultimately, I landed on the 808 Audio Hex XL. At $100, it was right on budget, but I could have even gone with one of their smaller speakers for $80 or $60. I was sold on the XL for its rechargeable lithium-ion battery, 30-foot wireless range, weight, and overall sound quality. I do suggest reading the advised volume settings to ensure the best sound.   808-hex-xl-speaker-side   I also love that it comes with a removable elastic strap, not only making traveling with it incredibly easy, but using it outdoors much more versatile. For example, if the ground is not safe to sit the speaker on, you can hang it off a tree branch or wall hook. Not to mention it only weighs about two pounds so it’s wonderfully lightweight.   It comes in three colours (black, red, and silver) and arrives in a box on a stand, which I've actually been using to prop up the speaker. Overall, a solid product at a great price point from a company that boasts "studio quality sound".
