Jawbone should be credited for popularizing a whole new tech category: portable Bluetooth speakers. In fact, Jawbone has been so humongously successful, its Jambox speakers now have hundreds of competitors.
One such rival is the Grain Audio PWS from a New York-based firm that was initially bankrolled on Kickstarter. In contrast to its plasticky peers, this 7″-wide Bluetooth speaker is wrapped in solid walnut and, according to reviews, “sounds excellent” (Wired).

The PWS’s rechargeable battery is rated for eight hours of wireless playback and because each speaker is encased in genuine wood, no two look the same.
The Grain Audio PWS can be bought directly from Grain Audio, which helpfully ships worldwide.
