Portable speakers sacrifice sound quality for size. That will always be the case. But some really sacrifice. Soundmatters' foxLv2 Platinum Bluetooth speaker, however, promises big sound in a little package.

The foxLv2 builds on the previous technology of previous foxL speakers, which include a passive bass radiator and a driver that combines the tweeter and woofer. Designed by a former NASA scientist, the foxLv2 promises increased battery life and improved audio quality, which Soundmatters attributes to the CSR apx-X audio codec they're using for Bluetooth streaming.

The foxLv2 will be available starting in November for $230. [Soundmatters]

The Jawbone Jambox doesn't suck at all.

When it first came out, I thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever seen. Then my buddy got one and I was sold. Perfect for fishing, camping, picnics, hanging out, whatever. It also suffers from the biggest problem this does, price. Although it can regularly be had fro $170.

Just sayin.
