Marshall's Stanmore speaker is so loud, we could barely get to halfway on the volume knob before it blew us out of the window. Now comes in a particularly manly 'pitch black' theme too.

Bower and Wilkins T7
Most Bluetooth speakers are hardly worth writing home about when it comes to design, yet the T7 is one of slickest and sexiest we’ve seen all year (and we see a lot of Bluetooth speakers, we can promise you that). Part of the design actually helps the sound quality too, the honeycomb like pattern around the edge is a Micro Matrix, which reduces vibration and distortion, a problem we frequently see with portable speakers like this. It sounds great too, but then you’d expect that when it costs £300 and comes from B&W.
£300 | Bowers and Wilkins
