There was a time in my life where I didn’t understand the importance of listening to music loudly. Perhaps I owe it to my fourth grade teacher who often cited her hard hearing as direct evidence of years of loud music listening or the house I grew up in making me feel like I needed to be as small as possible in order to have a space within it. But over the years, I’ve found great love in driving on the scenic route with the windows down and listening to music as loudly as I can stand. And my partner—a heavy metal devotee—has taught me the importance of a song that’s meant to be listened to as loud and as fast as possible.
If you’re like us and have found certain relief into listening to music beyond the sound capabilities of your smartphone or computer, you’ll enjoy at least one of these amazing Bluetooth speakers that Amazon has to offer.
