Beach days, picnics, and camping trips: these outdoor Summer activities aren't the same without your favorite upbeat tunes buzzing in the background. That's where these eight portable speakers come in. Whether you are looking for something waterproof and inexpensive or want powerful, high-quality sound, there's a portable speaker for every outdoor need. Some contain audio jacks that you can easily plug into your iPhone, iPod, or other MP3 player, while others require a device with built-in Bluetooth (like the iPhone).
The Dazzle Speakers ($88) are no exception. The portable speakers are completely blinged-out and covered in rhinestones. They're made to work with any MP3 player or even your computer.
I've said before that these types of accessories aren't necessarily my style, though the rhinestones on these speakers are pretty awesome. What do you say?
When I first saw the Skullcandy iPod Speaker Dock ($70) at Target, I questioned how good the quality could be from something so compact. But after testing it out myself, I take back all the doubt I had previously cast upon it.
Coming with a battery-powered remote and charging cable, the Skullcandy Pipe is perfect for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or even the living room if you're looking for a full sound in a smaller space. I had this playing at a recent family holiday party, and it provided the perfect amount of background music to keep the party going into the night. The remote gets great range, and just four AAA batteries seem to last quite awhile if you aren't using the included charging cable.

Anyone who has a bit of surfer girl in them is probably going to love these Roxy i-P22 Portable Speakers by Sonic Impact. Featured on paperclippy, this speaker system will blast tunes from your iPod in a cute compact Roxy case. I'd say a great accessory to take to the beach or when traveling. Each costs $100 and includes an inside storage compartment for your earbuds. What are your thoughts? Do you love it?
