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.

Sony SRS-X99

The SRS-X99 is Sony's current range-topping wireless speaker, a step up from the £350 SRS-X88. Like the X88, this top-end model supports high-resolution and multiroom playback, but increases the power, amplifiers and driver count to deliver what I hope...

Harman Kardon GO+PLAY Wireless

The Harman/Kardon Go + Play is one of the best-sounding portable iPod speaker systems you can buy, but its high price and lack of compatibility with recent iPod models make it a limited recommendation.

Sony SRS-X33

As mentioned earlier, the SRS-X33 is intriguing—at certain volumes, it sounds fantastic for its size and price, but at higher volumes, it can sound unlistenable. For $130, I still really like the Sony SRS-X33 when listening at moderate volumes. It's an...

Razer Leviathan Mini

Performance and Conclusions You wouldn't expect a speaker this size to deliver much bass, or to do so without coming close to distortion, but a speaker this price is another story. On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent...

Sony SRS-ZR5

Accuracy isn't everything, and we give the SRS-ZR5 high marks for boosting the lows and low-mids in a tasteful way. Add to that its versatility in the connectivity department, its ability to be used in pairs, and the option to tweak the sound signature...

Beats by Dr. Dre Pill+ / Pill Plus

Conclusions If there's a real gripe here, it's that the Pill+ sounds markedly different depending on its angle to your ears—an issue that could have been fixed by angling the drivers upward or building in a kickstand that allows you to tilt the speaker...

Sony SRS-XB2

The difference between the SRS-XB2 and its more expensive sibling is vast: The SRS-XB3 has a second passive radiator and larger drivers that combine to produce a substantially more powerful, bass-forward sound. This is to be expected in a larger...

The Heos 7 HS2 is the wireless speaker Heos 7 should have been, combining room-filling sound and slick streaming with built-in Bluetooth and Hi-Res Audio support.

Denon Envaya Mini DSB-100

The eye-catching Denon Envaya Mini is a mighty portable speaker capable of delivering big, burbling bass and quality audio over the airwaves. Genuinely portable, with its own carry case included, we can't think of a more desirable sub-£100 small-scale...

Yamaha YSP-1600

Yamaha’s YSP-1600 is a fine upgrade from just about any TV’s built-in speakers, but it’s not a good choice if you’re also looking for speakers for listening to music.
