This mini floating speaker has 'big, clear sound' — score it for a near-record low price

What is it?

Music is meant to be shared, but that's not always possible with a tinny little phone speaker. Well, we're here to cure your audio woes. The folks at Wonderboom have perfected the art of portable speakers, and Amazon is offering nearly $30 off the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 3.

This Bluetooth speaker features 360-degree sound. It's also waterproof, floatable and has an impressive 131-foot range.

Why is it a good deal?

At $71, this is the lowest price this powerful little speaker has been in over 30 days. It's also only $1 over the lowest price ever, during last year's Black Friday sale.

Why do I need this?

This speaker is the perfect accessory for hanging with friends. It's only 4 inches high and 1.2 pounds, so you can easily toss the Wonderboom 3 in your bag and whip it out when the mood strikes. Oversize buttons make it simple to skip songs or pause the music. It connects to your phone or tablet wirelessly via Bluetooth, and it pumps out up to 14 hours of tunes before it needs a recharge. Better yet, it's waterproof and dustproof. The speaker comes in four colors — all of ’em on sale.

What reviewers say:

"Very nice," said a happy customer. "Cheap, light, a perfect small speaker to move around when working outside (or inside). A nice break from earbuds." A fellow fan called the Wonderboom 3 the "best all-around portable speaker ever." They continued, "What's not to like here? Waterproof, highly durable, sleek design and big, clear sound in a small speaker that surprises everyone that hears it. We take it on picnics, outside when we work, we take it to the pool and sometimes drop it in the pool, which it handles without a single issue as it is highly waterproofed."

"Sometimes, big things do come in small packages," said one reviewer. "I bought this for my daughter for her birthday. She LOVES it. Incredible sound for such a small speaker. 360 projection is very impressive and the boost feature is great for outdoors. She loves its portability. She has taken it to the beach and to the pool and says it sounds great."

"At first, I thought it was a little pricey for a shower speaker, but I find myself using this constantly! I carry it with me to listen to podcasts and music at my desk, in the kitchen, while cleaning the basement, etc. I have only had it for a few months, so I can't really speak to corrosion on the charging port or other common shower speaker problems. But so far, so good. ... I'd buy it again if I lost this one," another shopper said.

Especially in this vibrant pink, the speaker is more than just a way to jam out — it's a conversation starter.
