The Big Jambox brings modern tech – and a future-forward design – to the classic boombox. It connects via Bluetooth to play the music off your phone, and its tiny drivers and 18-watt amp create a sound far larger than you'd expect from simply looking at the Kleenex box-size speaker. Everything you stream – from Wilco and Wolfgang Amadeus to Patsy Cline and podcasts – has impressive depth. [$300; jawbone.com]
