Look for speakers that come equipped with the latest Bluetooth technology so that you don’t have to compromise on the sound quality. Also, if you plan to carry your speakers with you while travelling, you should prioritise gadgets that promise a certain level of durability so that you don’t have to worry about damage. Here are a few funky retro Bluetooth speakers that you should check out.
The PAGARIA Portable Retro Vintage Speaker is a great option for old souls because it has AM/FM functionality along with an old-school tuning knob that you can use to listen to the radio anytime you like. Do keep in mind that the FM frequency range is between 87.5-108 while the AM frequency range is between 522-1620. The company claims that this Bluetooth speaker has a range of 33ft, which should, at the very least, ensure that you can move about your home with your phone without the speaker disconnecting. From an aesthetic point of view, this speaker looks quite snazzy thanks to the walnut wood finish and copper antennae. Its compact design should ensure you can place it anywhere without worrying about it cluttering up your space.
Transport yourself to the early 50s with this Bluetooth speaker that emulates the look of a gramophone. The speaker has a bass enhancement system in it that should ensure you can enjoy any song you like.

Additionally, you can store all your music on the device as it has an SD reader. The speaker supports FM functionality, ensuring that you can tune into your favourite channel and groove to great tunes.
