Like packing music to share? You’ll love this affordable Bluetooth speaker, which delivers innovative design, quality sound, waterproofing, and long battery life (around a week) for just $60.

Says another: “I tether it to my bike’s top tube and jam tunes on long rides.” The IPX7 rating means it can handle nearly 30 minutes of submersion. And sound is good: “While some lower end frequencies wash out, it handles a range, from subdued acoustic music to dense electronic arrangements,” says our audiophile. $60; 12.8 oz.;
