The Sound Kick by Soundfreaq is one of the best bluetooth speakers in the $100 price-range, as reviewed by many outlets and users, and it's currently on sale at the TechSpot Store for $49.99 - half off MSRP.

The Sound Kick features a compact size and sleek design, making it a perfect travel speaker. However, what really sets it apart from the competition is its robust sound and 7 hour playback time on a single charge. You can also charge your mobile devices from a built in USB power port, even when Sound Kick is running on battery.

Top Features:

  • Enjoy up to 7 hours of playtime with the built-in rechargeable battery
  • Stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth
  • Control the volume & playback functions directly from the speaker
  • Quickly connect to any device w/ a simple line-in option
  • Enhance your playlist w/ full sound, natural bass response, vocal clarity & UQ3 spatial enhancement
  • Charge your mobile devices w/ the USB power port even while Sound Kick is running on battery power

The Sound Kick usually retails for $100, but you can get it for half that price at $49.99 with free shipping (unfortunately, US only).
