Funky Bluetooth speakers

We've rounded up some of the more peculiar-looking Bluetooth speakers, which come in all different shapes and sizes these days.

If you think we missed any gems, please post a link in the comments section. We'll be updating the roundup with new speakers as we come across them.

Phoniture

I've let my phone lounge in Phoniture, and I have to say there's something really special about seeing your mobile relaxing in its own chair and ottoman (where the speaker resides). The only drawback is that the sound is pretty thin (the speaker lacks bass). Nevertheless a lot of people will like the novelty of the whole set-up, which is available in blue, black, or red.

Price: $99
/> See more info and pricing for Phoniture.

Boom Swimmer

If you're looking for a speaker that looks like a key component in the reproductive process (and I don't mean sound reproduction), look no farther (or is it father?) than the Boom Swimmer. As its name implies, it's waterproof. It sounds a little thin, but it plays louder than you'd think for such a small speaker with a flexible tail. Available in multiple colors.

Price: $59
/> See more info and pricing for the Boom Swimmer.

Acoustic Research For Her wireless speaker

Boom Urchin

Thanks to its interchangeable silicone cover, the Boom Urchin is both water-resistant and shock-resistant. It comes with a couple of different mounting accessories, including a suction cup so you can take it in the shower with you. It started out at around $150, but it has since come down to about $100 and offers decent sound for that price. Available in multiple colors.

Price: $99
/> See more info and pricing for the Boom Urchin.

Antopos Bluetooth Speaker with Build-in Microphone

This mushroom-shaped suction-cup Bluetooth "speakerphone," which doubles as a stand for your smartphone, is sold under a couple of different no-name brands. At $15, it's hard to find a Bluetooth speaker that costs less.

Price: $14.99
/> See more info and pricing for the Antopos Portable Bluetooth Speaker.

Aerb Wireless Bluetooth Speaking mouse

It's a mouse. It's a speaker. It's a speaking mouse.

Yes, the Aerb Wireless Bluetooth Speaking mouse allows you to surf the Web on your computer while paired with your smartphone to play music. It's also designed to work as a speakerphone for Skype calls.

Price: $27
/> See more info and pricing for the Aerb Wireless Bluetooth Speaking mouse.

Amethyst 2.1 Channel Bluetooth speaker

This wireless speaker plays audio with a smile on its face.

Price: $50
/> See more info and pricing for the Amethyst 2.1 Channel Bluetooth speaker.

Boombotix Boombot2+

It may be inspired by Japanese urban vinyl toys, but Boombotix's Boombot2+ may also give more mature readers a flashback to the TV show, "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters" (1973-75). It is water-resistant and has built-in speakerphone capabilities. Available in a few different colors. Note: the plus model is the latest version of this speaker.

Price: $60
/> See more info and pricing for the Boombotix Boombot2+.

Massive Audio Dalek

Here's another crazy Bluetooth speaker we spotted at CES. Massive Audio, maker of car audio gear, unleashed a full-size Dalek, studded with the company's equipment. Massive Audio is advertising the "Massive Dalek" as the world's loudest and largest Bluetooth speaker.

Kakkoii Wow

I'm quite sure how you pronounce this brand (seems like one "i" at the end would have been enough). But the product name is easy. Wow. Available in multiple color options.

Price: $75
/> See more info and pricing for the Kakkoii Wow.

Divoom Bluetune Bean

Don't expect to get much bass from the Divoom Bluetune Bean, but it is cute and small, and the kids seem to like it. Available in multiple colors -- of course.

Price: $29.99

Price: $110
/> See more info and pricing for the Outdoor Tech Turtle Shell 2.

Outdoor Tech Buckshot

The Buckshot doesn't serve up a whole lot of bass, but it's got some kick to it for such a tiny speaker -- and it's water-resistant. Available in a different color options.

Plemo Magic Cube

I'm surprised there's isn't a Rubik's Cube Bluetooth speaker yet (perhaps there is one but I missed it). But this may be the next best thing.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
