The good-looking Philips Fidelio SoundRing offers decent audio quality at moderate levels, but it doesn't perform like a $300 speaker system.

Streams audio wirelessly from Apple OS devices and iTunes via AirPlay. Sound projects in two directions, making it easy to fill a room. Rechargeable ring can be removed from the base and moved from room to room. Interesting visual design

Distorts heavily on deep bass tracks at high volumes. Annoying set-up process. Switching between AirPlay and physically connected sound sources can be tricky. Overpriced for its performance

Pity the poor Philips Fidelio SoundRing with AirPlay. It's one of those decent products that's gotten lost in the shuffle and hasn't quite gotten the respect it probably deserves.

The Philips Fidelio SoundRing DS3881W is a strikingly designed wireless AirPlay speaker that offers superior sound. It also has a built-in rechargeable battery and a USB port for charging smartphones.

The speaker was a little tricky to set up for AirPlay use and the manual could be more clearly written. The speaker's also fairly pricey.

While it's a bit overpriced, Philips Fidelio SoundRing is one of the better compact AirPlay speakers we've tested -- and it has a battery-powered option to boot.
