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...

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...

Logitech UE Boom

The UE Boom earns our highest marks. It's super-portable, the battery lasts seemingly forever, and It sounds downright fantastic — especially for a small speaker priced at $200.

Beats Pill XL

Like all things Beats, the Pill XL is a bass-heavy affair (so purists can stop reading now). Also like most products in Dr. Dre's audio gear lineup, it's well-designed. At $299.95, the Pill XL isn't an inexpensive portable Bluetooth speaker, and is...

JBL Charge 2

As we’ve seen year-over-year in the Bluetooth speaker genre, the competition has only gotten better since the original Charge was released. JBL obviously knows the terrain, and has made great strides to keep up with the crowd with the Charge 2. With...

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.

JBL Pulse

At a price tag of Rs 14,990, the JBL Pulse feels quite expensive for what is essentially a pretty average sounding Bluetooth speaker with some lights. Features like a built-in microphone and the ability to pair multiple devices are also missing. It...

JBL Clip

Expectations for audio excellence should be checked at the door when shopping for small, inexpensive Bluetooth speakers. The $49.95 JBL Clip subverts those checked expectations with surprisingly good audio performance that rarely distorts (and even...

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.

JBL Flip 2

Although its battery life remains a weak point and its price has gone up a bit, the Flip 2 is an improvement over the original Flip and one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers available.

JBL Flip

Its clear dominance in sound and $100 price tag make it a serious contender for king-of-the-hill... Depending on how far you intend to travel from an outlet, the Flip could make a great choice.

Sony SRS-X3

With comparably good sound for its size and the addition of speakerphone features, the Sony SRS-X3 mini Bluetooth speaker measures up well against the pricier Bose SoundLink Mini.

Sony SRS-BTM 8 Bluetooth

Sony's offering then, may not sound the best, but it allows an affordable (relatively, of course) means to own a portable Bluetooth speaker system. However, the lack of a rechargeable battery may be a deal-breaker for those who may not want to invest...
