JBL says around festive season and let me tell you, it's totally worth waiting. With the recent firmware update, xtreme-2 comes dangerously close to Bose soundlink mini-2 in terms of sound quality

I had recently bought Marshall Stanmore that's available for 21k from Paytm Mall. If you are looking for non portable options, you should definitely audition it once.

Extreme retails for around 14K. I think extreme 2 will touch 20k easily, considering it costs $300.
Is SoundLink mini 2 really good? I want good Bluetooth solution even if its bit bulky, its fine.
I have Yamaha home theatre and various headphones and speakers in other room, but looking for some clutter free solution in this room hence the question.

Soundlink mini-2 is a gem of a speaker for a midsize room, sadly, it's been discontinued but you can still get from amazon for about 12k. The amount of bass and sound it throws, its unreal for its size. Please keep in mind it comes with own set of niggles (there are lot of YouTube videos for that)

You can definitely try out Charge3 (8k) Marshall Stanmore (21k) and Bose Revolve+(24k)

Apart from above you can give JBL boombox (21k) and UE line of speakers a chance.

Ok thanks. Will try out charge 3. Will check comparisons between charge 3 / XB41 and extreme 2.?

Guys, looking for a portable BT splashproof (ideally) speaker within 4/5k. Will be ferried around by kids and used while cooking so needs to be robust. We already have a Bose Soundlink Mini which I don't want to use for this purpose.

Any recommendations? Amazon has a bewildering variety all on sale!

Hi Fellow Teambhpians:

I bought JBL Go 2 Portable bluetooth speake mic @ 2000 rs and
Boat Stone 200 Portable speaker with mic @ 1000 rs

JBL is waterproof while boat is water resistant

Here is a small video of the comparison of the two.
