THE DISCOVR IS a portable Alexa-enabled smart speaker with some neat touch-sensitive user controls and an unsubtle Mic Drop privacy mode that enables you to slam a virtual door in your voice assistant’s face.

Available in either silver or graphite finish, the driver array in this compact pod comprises one 3in woofer, and two 31mm tweeters. Together they create a quasi-omnidirectional sound field. The enclosure is made of aluminium, with a non-slip polymer base.

Much of the DiscovR’s 0.97kg weight is down to its substantial Li-ion battery, which offers you 15 hours off the leash. It takes about 4.5 hours to recharge.
