JBL Xtreme

If you're looking for more bass response and overall power out of a portable Bluetooth speaker, you've probably figured out that you'll need to spend more money and accept that "portable" might not necessarily mean "small." The JBL Xtreme, at $299.95,...

Bose Soundlink MINI II

It's been a couple of years since Bose released the SoundLink Mini, a portable Bluetooth speaker that seriously impressed us with its smart design, features, and big sound. The updated SoundLink Mini II is priced the same ($199.95), and looks quite...

Creative Sound Blaster ROAR 2

The best way to look at the Roar 2 is to simply consider it the same as the original Roar, albeit looking better after dieting for a few months. (Maybe it should have been called Roar 1.5?) Some cosmetic changes give it a slight makeover, but it’s...

Bose SoundLink Mini

Portable speakers are known for being portable first, and sounding great...well, almost never. Bose is aiming to change that perception with the SoundLink Mini, a diminutive 1.5-pound speaker that connects to any device via Bluetooth. With seven hours...

Bose SoundLink III / 3

Whatever you may think of Bose, the company makes some excellent Bluetooth speakers. Its previous two models, the SoundLink Mini and SoundLink II, both earned our Editors' Choice in their categories for putting out a surprising amount of warm, clear...

JBL Charge 2

The JBL Charge 2 is an attractive, sturdy portable Bluetooth speaker with strong battery life and the power to juice up your gadgets, but its decent sound is held back by uneven performance.

Logitech has been on a tear when it comes to Bluetooth speakers, especially with its Ultimate Ears (UE) line. We were impressed by the UE Boom, and the UE Mobile Boombox managed to take home our Editors' Choice award. The new X300 Mobile Wireless...

Libratone LOOP

The Libratone Loop is an attractive-looking AirPlay speaker, but at $500 it needs to do more than just look pretty, and it just doesn't sound as good as it should.

Ministry of Sound Audio S PLUS

A lot of Bluetooth speaker for the money, this is highly portable but can command a room. Its sound and styling (at least on the black one) are top notch, making the Ministry of Sound Audio S Plus a serious rival to the likes of Bose, JBL, Cambridge...

JBL Pulse 2

Upgraded from the old version after the adapter port broke. This one is nicer and the sound is good. Would like it to have more volumn but the light show is great. Might be a little overpriced when comparing to smaller devices that sound similar.

The Braven BRV-HD is a water-resistant Bluetooth speaker that performed well in our tests, but at $300, is a bit pricey. Fortunately, you can cut its price tag (and its weight) by a third if you don't need the rugged design elements: The $199.99 Braven...

JBL Pulse

Bluetooth speakers can look cool, but they usually don't look very engaging. Even if a speaker's chassis is aluminum, or colorful, or angular, it's still just a motionless object that puts out sound. JBL plays with that concept with the Pulse, a...

Logitech UE Mini Boom

While it doesn't do that much to stand out from the crowded field of Bluetooth speakers in the $60-$100 range, the well-built and decent sounding (for its size) UE Mini Boom is a pretty safe choice for those looking for a very compact wireless speaker.
