This is the best Bluetooth speaker I have ever heard for the price. It sells fo ranywhere between $150 and $200, but it's worth it. The speaker has amazing sound quality and is easy to travel with. It has a thick, sturdy built-in handle for carrying it around, you can tell it's made for taking places or using outside. The whole speaker is made...
