The audio market is full of portable speakers, but the G-BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Boombox goes against the grain, harking back to the boomboxes that brought music to the streets.

Named “Speaker of the Year” by iLounge, the G-BOOM pumps mighty sound for hours on end. It’s ideal for blasting at pool parties, and listening to summer anthems at the beach.

This rugged speaker is made for heavy use, without sacrificing style. The design is sleek, but durable, with a rubberized exterior and strong carry handle. The built-in battery offers six hours of playback on a single charge, and the speaker has a USB port for topping up other devices.

The G-BOOM delivers audio through two full-range drivers and two tweeters, with dual rear-firing bass ports providing the rumble. Maxx audio processing optimizes the low range. It allows the Boombox to deliver the kind of audio performance you would expect from a full-blown stereo system.

With Bluetooth and audio jack inputs, this Boombox is pretty much the complete package. You can order the G-BOOM on sale for $79.99 with free shipping to the U.S. via the Daily Dot store. That’s 20 percent off MSRP, and a whole lot of audio bang for your buck.
