When you listen to great music on the go, you want to share it – and that can be difficult when you and your friends struggle to hear the little sound coming from your phone. Well, we’re here to fix your audio issues. The folks at JBL have perfected the art of Blutetooth-enabled portable speakers, and Amazon has slashed prices on some of its most popular models, like the top-selling Clip 4 speaker.

Basically a beefier, sturdier and slightly heavier alternative to the Clip 3 (see below), the Carabiner 4 is integrated into the unit’s surrounding metal band, making it a perfect choice for more challenging activities such as hiking or camping. Also a great help outdoors: it is dustproof.

As one fan said, “It’s a great sounding JBL speaker. I use it for golfing, biking around the neighborhood, or just sitting on the back patio. The clip is a great feature. I would buy it again if needed. .”

At just four inches in diameter, the Clip 3 is small enough to take just about anywhere. A carabiner allows you to easily attach it to your bag or clothing, allowing you to enjoy hands-free audio wherever you are.

This speaker also connects wirelessly to your phone or tablet, letting you stream your sound worry-free. You can even take calls and enjoy its noise and echo cancellation. By the way, the Clip 3 is available in a dozen colors and patterns, all on sale.

A fan said it was his favorite portable speaker. “It’s small enough to fit in my purse or backpack,” they wrote. “The sound is exceptionally good for its small size. The Bluetooth connectivity is flawless. And it’s waterproof! I love using it all the time, every day and everywhere. It’s my new best little friend.”

It’s also equipped with PartyBoost, which lets you pair two compatible JBL speakers for premium stereo sound. Choose from 10 different colors including of them camouflage varieties.

“I bought this speaker for the beach and golf [course]. It was even better than I expected! The sound quality is amazing! I would recommend this speaker to anyone,” said one five-star fan.

At just 3.4″ × 2.7″, the Go 3 is the baby of the bunch. Rather than attaching it, like a padlock, you can simply clip it to a peg near your workstation, a kitchen cabinet knob, or workout equipment. It’s, of course, Bluetooth-enabled, offering five hours of playtime on a single charge. Plus, it’s 40% off!

Reports one delighted buyer: “Love the color, how compact and most importantly the VOLUME. Oh boy is this little guy STRONG! I think he’s at a great price, he’s billed right out the door from the packaging. I’ve had it for three days and haven’t charged it yet.”
