Apart from the simply ridiculous price of some of ’em, there’s one reason many wireless speakers (even the big name items) let themselves down – and that’s having the sheer grunt to produce loud music and sweet, accurate bass at the same time.

Well, even though this new Slam 2 Bluetooth speaker from KitSound comes in at only 60-quid, we can confirm it kicks some serious bottom in both departments.

In fact, with 20Watts RMS (which is a lot for home/portable audio systems) and an added passive bass radiator, it booms out the low frequencies with ease and, as for the rest of the sound spectrum? Well it’s pretty clever there too.


This one uses a built-in digital signal processor that automatically optimises an internal equaliser for some of the most impressive full-range performance we’ve ever clapped our, erm, ears on.

That’s not all you get with this little box of tricks either – you can pair multiple devices, it has an IPX4 water resistance rating so it won’t use the British weather as a good excuse to explode.

And there’s even a handy USB charging port to keep your smart devices going for just that little bit longer. Need we say more? Thought not.

Priced from £60
