Whether you're isolating onboard your superyacht or at home, a bit of music, an interesting podcast or even an audio book is a great way to while away the hours in the sun. The right luxury headphones are great for some occasions, but if you're lounging in your garden or on the deck of your yacht, a wireless speaker means everyone can enjoy.
Bose Soundlink Revolve
Providing 360 sound from the wrap around speaker this wireless model from Bose is one that easily fills a room with top quality noise. It's splash-proof, which is great for taking on board with a satisfyingly long batter life.
Master & Dynamic MA770
The first speaker from luxe headphone specialist Master & Dynamic, the MA770 was designed in collaboration with internationally-renowned architect David Adjaye - a pedigree evidenced by its modern, sculptural profile. Constructed in a concrete composite that promises advanced acoustic benefits, the speaker is fitted with top-of-the-line components and Chromecast for multi-room link up.
Hark back to the glory days of ghetto blasters with JBL’s Boombox. Designed for waterside use and with deep bass, it will play for up to 24 hours on a single charge.
Devialet Gold Phantom
If you like your music loud than few wireless speakers offer more than Devialet's Gold Phantom. A luxury speaker with a whopping 4,500W of power, which translates into a sound pressure level of 108dB/m - roughly the same as your average private jet! While it's not as easily portable than the others listed here, weighing in at 11.4kg, what it loses in weight it makes up for in style with a striking curved design and 22 karat gold-plated covers.
Naim Audio Mu-so 2nd Generation
If you were to turn this picture around, you'd see the impressive speaker system at the back of this slimline wireless model. Providing exceptional sound quality it can seamlessly connect to your phone, TV, USB or HDMI, though again it's not the most portable weighing in at 11.2kg.
Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance
Delightfully compact without any compromise on acoustic quality. It's a subtle, unobtrusive addition to any room it's designed to be placed close to a wall so the sound beams bounce off it around the room. We particularly like the touch interface which only lights up upon approach.
Ultimate Ears Boom 2
One of the few wireless speakers designed with waterproof capabilities in mind, the UE Boom 2 can be submerged in depths up to one metre for 30 minutes meaning it can be used anywhere from pool to shower with complete confidence. A 15 hour battery life, integrated Siri and Google Now and 360-degree sound make it primed for modern life while those who really want to get the party started will be pleased to know that up to 150 UE speakers in the various Boom ranges can be connected for the ultimate experience.
Bang And Olufsen Beosound Stage
A slick, discreet design, this speaker is ideal for those who love a minimalist aesthetic. Whether it's placed on a TV stand or mounted to the wall, it's fairly slimline and doesn't look too bulky. As for the acoustics, you're in for a treat thanks to the 11 amplifiers (speakers). With a 3-channel sounds system it's like recreating a cinema experience at home.
