Sound advice for new grads
I know it's a stereotype to assume that young people are clumsy and careless with their electronics, but why not play it on the safe side with the Philips Shoqbox SB7200, a super tough Bluetooth speaker that pumps out powerful sound in a package that any soldier or civilian would enjoy.
- Overall score: 7.3 (3.5 stars)

The good: A rubber exoskeleton wraps the Philips Shoqbox SB7200 Bluetooth speaker in a protective layer of hard mesh, while dual magnets inside push out full-bodied tones that reach a level above competing portable speakers.
The bad: The gimmicky Smart Sensor adds an overly complicated layer to the speaker's simple design, and the single action button is prone to accidental presses.
The bottom line: The Philips Shoqbox SB7200 is built to survive the great outdoors and manages to sound better than most competing Bluetooth speakers at the same time.
