This Sony portable speaker will let TV watchers change the channel, adjust the volume and listen to their program without interruption even if they have to take a bathroom break or cook themselves some food.

The Sony portable speaker is a hybrid device, combining a Bluetooth speaker and a TV remote. With a wide range, it lets the user hear their show or control the TV from anywhere in their home.

It's easy to see how this would be useful for sports fans who don't have time to watch a whole game -- just switch to listening while doing laundry, like a radio broadcast. The Sony portable speaker could also be essential in a crowded family home. If a family member complains that they can't hear the TV over all the talking, simply pass them their own personal speaker.
