Q Acoustics Media 4

Q Acoustics is in a rich vein of form at the moment – and the Media 4 is just another excellent option in an already enviable product range. It’s sensibly priced and sounds fantastic, so we would happily part with our hard-earned cash. It’s a great...

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...

Samsung HW-J650

The HW-J650 is an outstanding bar for the burgeoning audio enthusiast. Packing walloping bass and a handful of adjustment options, it's a solid soundbar by any measurement. Too bad a distinct echo and a lack of ports keep it from being pitch perfect.

Definitive Technology W Studio

Definitive Technology makes some very impressive speakers. They also tend to be relatively expensive. Both qualifiers certainly apply to the company's W Studio, a soundbar and wireless subwoofer combination that sounds excellent and offers high-end...

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.

Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15

There are affordable portable Bluetooth speakers, and then there are luxury portable Bluetooth speakers. The $599 Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15, clearly, falls into the latter category. If the price doesn't cause you to bolt, the speaker will not...

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.

LG LAS950M

You can see that we had some illogical operational issues here, and we’d strongly suggest that you leave ARC off. And we hope that LG might one day allow the soundbar to use the five unused drivers. But when it was all up and running, we had none of...

Cambridge Audio G5

The Cambridge Audio G5 is one of the better mid-size wireless speakers, and while it’s no bargain basement product, it is a bit cheaper than the Bose SounkLink III, one of the G5’s closest rivals.

JBL GO Wireless Portable Speaker

The JBL Go is a good buy if you’re looking for a decent Bluetooth speaker that you can carry around anywhere without issues. However, if you want better audio quality and don’t mind losing out a bit in the portability department, and also don’t mind...

Denon HEOS 3

With app inconsistencies, a lack of Mac compatibility, and audio performance that fails to rise above the crowd, Denon’s Heos multi-room speaker system was at best underwhelming, and at worst, downright annoying. Even if big bass is your pleasure, the...

IK Multimedia’s iLoud is helping to redefine the genre of portable speakers. The unit stumbles here and there in its ambitious quest for affordable versatility, most dramatically outlined by the excessive noise we encountered while connecting via...

Harman Kardon Esquire Mini

The Harman Kardon Esquire Mini is a great-looking micro Bluetooth speaker that works quite well as a speakerphone, but is bass-challenged, so it isn't much of a music speaker.

Creative Sound Blaster FREE

Coming to the price, this costs Rs 8,000 MRP which is too much for this quality of speakers. At Rs 6,500, it would make a better deal. But nonetheless be aware of what you get.

Philips HTL 7140

Really disappointed with this after upgrading from the much cheaper 5140 model. I actually went back to the cheaper model as it has a fuller sound and is louder too. Disappointed with the dedicated centre channel. Expected so much more from this
