80 Portable Summer Speakers

From Speaker-Infused Blankets to Rugged Voice-Activated Speakers

— June 27, 2013 — Art & Design
An outdoor gathering isn't a party until there is music and these summer speakers are designed to make portable music playing easier.

One of the biggest problems of portable speakers is that you can easily forget to pack them when you're going out to party. The most useful summer speakers are the ones that are build into other objects like beach towels, coolers and even shoes. How clever is it when companies combine two things you need into one totally functional device?

If you're planning an outdoor party, these summer speakers are a must. Set the mood for a good time by playing cheerful music through compact party-ready speakers or booze-holding boomboxes. Be the life of every outdoor party you attend this summer by being the person who remembers to bring the speakers!
