Portable speakers are great for taking with you on camping trips, a day trip to the beach, or just out with you in general. However, battery life for these portables are usually less than ideal, plus not all of them are weather resistant which could be a problem if you like lounging by the pool and are worried about the speakers getting wet.

Bang & Olufsen might have the answer to your problem as the company has since announced the Beosound Explore. This is a canister-shaped speaker that features a rubberized base and aluminum body that the company says is scratch-resistant. It has also been designed to be fully dustproof and waterproof.

The company says that the Beosound Explore has also been created in a way that its internal components are protected from drops and falls, so if you’re after a rugged set of speakers, this could be it. The Beosound Explore also comes with dual 1.8 full range drivers and boasts an incredible 27 hours of battery life.

That being said, given that this is a Bang & Olufsen product, it does not come cheap. The Beosound Explore is priced at €199 and if you’re interested, you’ll be able to order it from the company’s website.
