It’s not hard to find inexpensive Bluetooth speakers that double down on portability at the cost of aesthetics and sound quality; they’re literally everywhere. If all you need is a cheap portable speaker, Amazon is chock full of options. But it’s not every day we find a good deal on a premium Bluetooth speaker from an audiophile brand, so if that premise interests you, check out thewhen you apply promo code CNETONX at checkout. If you factor in the extra discount you can get from a cashback service (like 3% back from TopCashBack), it actually clocks in just under $200.
The Onyx Studio 6 currently lists for $300, so that’s a healthy discount. And this newest iteration of the Onyx Studio has a lot to offer — first and foremost, it’s a really gorgeous design. And on the inside, 50 watts drive the 120mm woofer and 25mm tweeter. Moreover, it’s the first in the series to offer an IPX7 waterproof rating, and it can connect to two different mobile devices at once, so two people can take turns playing DJ.
The battery delivers about eight hours of runtime on a charge — not a huge battery life, but this is probably a better portable speaker for carrying around the house rather than taking on the road anyway, considering its size and weight (it’s about a foot in diameter and 6.5 pounds).
