Summertime is the perfect time for portable audio

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy. Here in Montana, once the warm weather hits, you hit the parks, trails, and any eatery that has outdoor seating. The only thing needed to complete this blissful sunny scene is a few of your favorite tunes. Problem is, your awesome speaker system is inside. So how do you take your music to the park without compromising audio quality?

Make it mobile with the Bose Bluetooth SoundLink mobile speaker. This speaker is seriously cool. It’s compact and lightweight so you can easily bring it on a picnic or to a backyard party. You control it wirelessly (and transmit your playlists) using your phone, tablet, or other Bluetooth device. The rechargeable battery lasts up to 8 hours. Rock on!
