Bluetooth speakers are often some of the most heavily discounted products come Black Friday sales time. Case in point: the Sony SRS-XB12 speaker is currently 50 per cent off at Amazon. Now just $30, this compact Bluetooth speaker is waterproof, boasts a 16-hour battery life and promises to kick out the bass.

But hurry – the deal ends tonight at midnight.

The SRS-XB12 is a small little device, standing not much bigger than a coffee cup. It features Sony's Extra Bass, which promises plenty of low-end oomph, and it's waterproof, which is handy should you take it to the beach (or just step out into a downpour). It's also sand-proof and mud-proof, so it really does seem fit for the elements.

You can pair two of them together to play in stereo, which should have no problem filling a room. And with a battery life of 16 hours, it should last the duration of whatever you have planned – be it a party with friends or just binge-watching Netflix on your phone.
