Sonos is adept at manufacturing top-of-the-line audio equipment across the board. Whether it’s a smart soundbar or a heavyset speaker system, its quality is always extraordinary, and the SoCal-based brand’s latest offering doesn’t fall far from the tree. Sonos’ small-scale Roam SL Bluetooth speaker serves as an excellent choice if you’re looking to get back outdoors but can’t go without your favorite tracks.

Measuring in at a mere 6.5″ tall and weighing just below a single pound, this handy speaker boasts a much sturdier composition than its travel-ready size would suggest. Shock absorbent and all, this mighty durable speaker also boasts an IP67 dust- and waterproof rating, meaning it is capable of being submerged in three feet of water with no qualms in the slightest. Plus, with up to 10 hours of nonstop playback, this is sure to last you quite some time when out and about.

At the end of the day, what truly matters here is the incredible sound resolution, which is what we’ve come to expect from Sonos. Boasting a pair of Class-H fine-tuned digital amplifiers, a tweeter to capture the highest of frequencies, and a mid-woofer for top-tier mid-range performance, this is practically an audiophile’s handheld dream. Whether you find yourself taking on the trail this spring or cozying up to some podcasts in the comfort of your own home, there’s no way you could go wrong with Sonos’ updated Roam.

If you’re on the lookout for the best compact portable speaker around, you’d be well off picking this up for an optimized sonic experience. The Roam SL Bluetooth speaker is available exclusively through Sonos in a pair of colors for $159.

Purchase: $159
