8. Jabra Solemate

Firmly with the Jawbone Jambox in its sights, this is the portable Bluetooth speaker that has sole (quite literally). Roughly around the same size as the original Jambox, the shoe inspired design aims to keep the speaker in place when the subwoofer and dual tweeters on board crank out the music. If you are taking out for the day, it comes with its own sound bag that when inside will still play music clearly and if you are having Bluetooth issues, there’s a 3.5mm cable hidden in the bottom to cover the connectivity bases.
