Sonos – from $149

There’s a reason everyone’s obsessed with the Sonos speaker system. It easy to use and it sounds good as shit. This system lets you stream your fav new tracks over wi-fi, not Bluetooth, so the music doesn’t stop unless you do – even if you get a phone call. Their Play:1 speaker is also humidity resistant, perfect for singalong showers in the bathroom or sweet backyard hangs.
