Bose Portable Home Speaker
Bose’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Portable Home Speaker is more compact and easier to carry around than the Sonos Move and costs a little less. This Bose speaker delivers big sound for its relatively small size (the Sonos does sound better, however) and links with other speakers in the brand’s Wi-Fi Home speaker line to create a multiroom audio system.
