The boAt Stone 1200F has the aura and audacity of a boombox in a smaller, handy avatar. It boasts 14W of sheer audio power with a passive bass radiator for rich, foot-tapping, heart-thumping sound, and RGB LEDs on either side to add visual dynamism to your audio experience. The speaker comes with a wireless, portable design that can be carried in one’s hand or even strung along the shoulder using an accompanying strap. With 9 hours of playback time, the Stone 1200F lets the party go on into after-hours, and the fact that it’s IPX7 water and splash resistant lets you easily take the party outdoors too!
