Marley's Chant speaker sounds portable and inexpensive

Lex Friedman | April 3, 2013
House of Marley's $60 Chant Portable Audio System is a Bluetooth speaker that you can carry inside its own custom canvas case. If you prize affordability and portability over audio fidelity, the Chant is a fine option.

Bottom line

The Chant is an inexpensive, portable speaker, and it sounds like an inexpensive, portable speaker. If you're after the first part, you can probably live with the second part. If you have more to spend and don't mind a larger, heavier--but still rechargeable--speaker, Brookstone's $100 Big Blue Live () is far more enjoyable to listen to. If your budget tops out at $60, JBL's $59 Micro Wireless offers much better wireless sound than the Chant in an even smaller package that's still rechargeable.
