When you're listening to great music on the go, you want to share it — and that can be tough when you and your friends are straining to hear the teeny sound coming from your phone. Well, we're here to cure your audio woes. The folks at JBL have perfected the art of portable speakers and one of the company's most popular models is on mega-sale at Amazon.

There's so much to love about the JLB Charge 5. At less than 10 inches in length and 2.1 pounds, the JBL Charge 5 is small enough to take just about everywhere. And we do mean "everywhere": It's waterproof, so you don't need to stress about getting caught in the rain, and it pumps out up to 20 hours of tunes before it needs a recharge. Plus, it comes in six fun colors from red to aqua to a camouflage pattern.

It's also the perfect accessory for hanging by the pool or ocean during your next vacation. Simply toss the Charge 5 in your bag and whip it out when the mood strikes. It's that easy!

This speaker connects to your phone or tablet wirelessly, allowing you to stream your sound without care. You can even take calls from it and enjoy its noise- and echo-cancellation. By the way, the Charge 5 comes in a slew of colors and patterns — all of 'em on sale.

This portable speaker has an army of fans — almost 13,000 — who all rave about its easy connection, sound, portability and durability.

"Highly recommend. Great sound and bass. I’ve had a UE boom 2 speaker for years and upgraded to this one recently. Better sound quality and bass since it’s a bigger speaker. A must have," raved one fan. "I love love this. The sound is clear and it connected right out the box I didn’t even charge it. But the best part is having another JBL in the house and I am able to sync them both. My girls nights and game nights are going to be great," said another.

Don't miss your chance to nab a top-rated portable speaker at a hefty discount!
