Cambridge Audio Go

The British gave the world some of its most influential music, so it’s not surprising that Cambridge Audio produces our favorite wireless speaker this season. Sure, GO ($179) is handsomely styled with a sexy curve and subtle silver-gray-and-white palette, but this speaker delivers where it really counts — with plenty of deep, sweet sounds that fill the room or the beach. On the go, the gutsy, award-winning speaker boasts an 18-hour battery life as well as Bluetooth with Near Field Communication (NFC) pairing. It also features a USB port to recharge smartphones and other necessary devices. Available at www.cambridgeaudio.com and www.crutchfield.com.

Ideal for the tech savvy, fashion forward audiophile, Acoustic Research, owned by VOXX International, offers AR for Her ($79.99), a high-quality Bluetooth wireless speaker that’s beautifully disguised as a trendy Chanel knock-off clutch. The sturdy speaker streams music from 30 feet away, and it also supports hands-free calling. It includes an AC adapter with micro USB cable, Aux input cable and a sassy little removable accessory strap. It’s available in black, white and a whimsical pink-and-white polka dot pattern. Stylish good looks aside, this speaker puts out terrific sounds. The sturdy body is made of hard plastic and measures about 7 inches high by 9 inches wide. Available at www.arforher.com.
