Portable Speakers: The Gift of Music on the Go

Portable Speakers: The Gift of Music on the Go

To those of us who love sitting back on the sofa with our eyes closed, listening to the strains of our favourite music played through our expensive hi fi system and carefully-positioned stereo speakers, the thought of portable speakers is anathema.

Mobile speakers have evolved to meet the needs of the “yoof” of today who demand instant gratification and want to play their top tunes from their phone NOW, wherever they are, without having to plug them in to an electricity socket or into their phone.

Now that I’ve got that off my chest, I’m willing to acknowledge the benefits of portable speakers. I might even be able to persuade myself to buy some for a Christmas or birthday present for my teenage daughter. At least it would stop her from plugging her iPhone into our expensive hi fi system!

We can’t escape the fact that young people love listening to music so a portable speaker would make a great gift idea. Students, teenagers, kids – put it on your present list now!
