The GXBT180 is the baby brother to the BT280 but as is so often with the younger sibling, it is better looking, more fun and fits easier into a rucksack, measuring up at 86 x 86 x 110mm it is super compact and only weighs 340g, you can even put it in your pocket (jacket, not jeans). It comes in three colours: Red, Black and Blue just like its older sibling as well as that same, handy attachment loop for fixing it to your bag, bike, tent, whatever you like.
The GX-BT280 is from Sharp’s portable speaker range and is available in three colours: Black, Red and Blue. This wireless speaker can be connected via Bluetooth 4.2 to your phone, tablet or any other Bluetooth device. It has a bold design with large obvious buttons, which makes it super easy for someone to connect and take over as DJ if they disapprove of the music. The tough little body is dustproof and water resistant thanks to the IP65 rating, and it is compact enough to throw in your backpack at 67 x 67 x 186mm with a weight of weighs 400g.
