If you’ve been intrigued by Bose Soundwear, this affordably-priced competitor allows you to take the technology for a spin at a fraction of the cost. JBL describes Soundgear as a product that creates a ‘personal sound zone while allowing you to remain fully aware of your surroundings’. JBL speakers are reputable.

Looking to take your audio with you on-the-go? Right now alongside the HomePod deal, we’re also seeing the JBL Pulse 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $199.95 shipped at Amazon. Find it on sale at Best Buy and JBL direct as well. Normally fetching $250, today’s offer saves you 20%, matches the Amazon all-time low, and is only the second time we’ve noted a discount. Standing out from your average Bluetooth speaker, JBL’s Pulse 4 can cast multicolor ambient lighting thanks to built-in LEDs. 

On top of its flashy design, you’ll also be able to enjoy room-filling audio from its 360-degree speaker array and up to 12 hours of playback per charge.
