FoxL v2 Bluetooth speaker with apt-X - $199.99
The FoxL v2 Bluetooth speaker's ($199.99) huge sound belies its tiny size, it produces mids and lows that I didn't think could come from such a small footprint. I loved it when I reviewed the original FoxL in 2011 and the updated version adds apt-X support which produces CD-like quality when Bluetooth streaming from apt-X compatible devices like the Mac Mini, MacBook Air, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro (with OS X Snow Leopard or higher).
The FoxL v2 sounded better than every Bluetooth speaker (of the same size) on display at my local Apple Store -- especially when playing songs in my "bass test" playlist, like the opening minute of Outkast's "The way you move." The FoxL v2 also has an amazing battery that I charge less than once per month. It's the perfect shelf speaker for the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom and it's small size makes it an ideal traveling companion for an iPhone or iPad.
