Should you buy it?

The BlueAnt Burleigh isn't the lightest, most durable or cheapest speaker available, but it's a solid Bluetooth speaker at an affordable price.

It's extremely easy to use and offers much better sound quality and longer battery life than a lot of other speakers in this price range.

The Burleigh retails for $240. Telstra customers can choose to buy the speaker outright or take advantage of a 24-month payment plan at $10 per month.
