Bose has always been a huge player in the world of portable speakers - and its latest model, the Bose Portable Home Speaker, should serve to cement that reputation even further.

Interested? Available in triple black and silver luxe, the Bose Portable Home Speaker will go on sale on 19th September, costing £329/$349.

The new Bluetooth speaker packs wireless connectivity, a 12-hour battery life and 360-degree audio into a super compact form, coming in at just 2.3 pounds (around 1kg).

Despite it's small size, Bose says its latest speaker delivers powerful bass, and, "unlike conventional speakers, there's no sweet-spot for placement or listening" - that means you can sit wherever you like in relation to the speaker, and it should still sound fantastic. Moreover, the Bose Portable Home Speaker is water-resistant with an IPX4 rating, which should allow it to survive spills, splashes, and rain. The latest home speaker revealed by the United States company earlier today offers support for two of the biggest digital assistants available on the market - Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.

If you choose to not use the mic, that's fine too. That way, you can ensure there is no possibility of you being listened to or recorded. The smart speaker comes with an integrated handle and can charge through standard USB-C, or a charging cradle that's sold separately for $30.
