Music plays an essential role in our daily lives. It has the capability of changing and uplifting our moods, feel nearly or possibly all emotions that we can experience in our lives.

Music has always been integral to any celebration. For all the important moments in your life, music is a necessity in the overall atmosphere and vibe of each event. It is an art form that allows us to have fun, dance, and enjoy celebrating different milestones.

In this editorial, we will be discussing some of the best options in the world of portable bluetooth speakers one can acquire for their mini-events. I will start this article with a very brief experience at a friend’s house party which happened during the December festive season. As a music enthusiast, good music matters to me alot. Good music is best enjoyed in a better sound system has rich audio output. Back to the house party, it was an impromptu event organized by a friend who was bored at home with nothing to do. He made a call through to me and some other colleagues who could make this possible. We created a group and discussed how we could pull this off in the next hour. A group of five, everybody was assigned a role to execute which I chose ‘Coordinator’. We set the ball rolling as soon as possible and everybody got to work. At the swimming pool area where the party was going to be held, the guy in charge of sounds walked in with a guy on a tricycle with filled with sound system hardware (Passive speakers and a rack). Fast forward to the sound check, after several configurations to get the best surround sound, the complex system failed to give the best crispy sound for our party. It’s unfeasible to have a party with a poor sound. In a state of recourse, i quickly reached out to a friend who had just received a Bose S1 Pro system as Christmas present from his dad to come to our aid. 30 mins away from the event house, he came around with the portable sound device. The spick and span fully charged Bose system was placed in vantage position where the sound can be felt from all angles. Quickly connected my phone to the speaker via Bluetooth , logged on to DC Leakers’ The Biggest Afropop/Afrobeat Party Bangers Of 2020 playlist on Apple Music for a test. The output was just what we needed for the turn up and fun-packed night. Guess who saved the night? BOSE did.

I further researched on some of the best wireless bluetooth speakers on the market that can create similar immersive sounds. Briefly are their specifications below.
