We’ve seen so many portable speakers with similar designs and features lately, we’re reminded of the Malvina Reynolds song featured at the intro of the Showtime series Weeds: “…little boxes on the hillside…and they’re all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same.” With all those “little boxes” out there, the choices begin to blend together into an anonymous blur.

The Jambox from Jawbone is probably the best-known Bluetooth speaker on the market, and it gets a lot right. It basically set the standard for design – one that others have tried duplicating with little success – and it is still on the smaller side (a plus for portability). The ability to customize settings and sounds with Jawbone’s MyTalk is a nice plus that many others don’t have.

The Switch Bluetooth Speaker would come in a clean, functional design that boasts of high-quality audio in addition to carrying an abundance of useful hidden extras, making it a truly versatile wireless speaker for plenty of occasions. The built-in battery is capable of lasting for the entire day, where you get up to 14 hours of non-stop playback on a full battery charge. Not only that, the Switch Bluetooth Speaker boasts of VoIP capabilities, allowing the unit to function as your very own conference call hub.
