Welcome to CHEAP, our series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!

Maybe it’s the impact technology has had on my brain, but I really can’t bear to be without music these days. Whether I’m working on my laptop (hello ambient playlists), walking around town (god bless you headphones), or am, well, anywhere, I feel I need music to soundtrack my day.

But, what do you do in those situations you’re away from your main audio set-up? Or where wearing headphones isn’t really an option? Then, friends, you need yourself a portable Bluetooth speaker.

Say hello then to the Bose SoundLink Micro — something that is, categorically, a portable Bluetooth speaker. Even better, it’s currently on offer for only $80, a 20 percent discount on its normal $100 price tag.

Now it’s time to talk features. As you can spot in the image above, the Bose SoundLink Micro is made from a rubbery, silicone material, meaning it’s hard-wearing and tear-resistant. It’s not only rugged (i.e. perfect for trips outdoors), but also waterproof. Basically, you can take this portable Bluetooth speaker with you almost anywhere.

There are some other cool aspects of the Bose SoundLink Micro too. For example, you can use the app to manage connections to the speaker, so you and all your mates can take turns blasting tunes. You can also pair two of the Bose SoundLink Micros to either play music simultaneously, or set-up stereo playback.

Of course, all of this comes with the sound quality you expect from a Bose speaker. In other words, it’s got a strong, bass-y, and rich output.

If you’ve been after a new portable Bluetooth speaker, your search is over. For only $80, the Bose SoundLink Micro is a brilliant bit of kit for a very reasonable price. You’ll never have to be without music again.
