There are some Bluetooth speakers that do more than just play music but double as a decorative piece for the living room. The Anker Soundcore Flare has a sleek vase-like shape that is fully waterproof if you just happen to spill a drink on it while busting a move or stretching while trying a new yoga pose. The real selling point of this speaker though, is the LED light ring at the base, which changes to match the rhythm of the beat.

Pros:

  • Compatible app to change the colours
  • Dual drivers and passive radiators for 360 sound
  • Long battery life

Cons:

  • Distorts at high volumes
  • Bass boost is very mild
