Klipsch Synergy Quintet

The Quintets combination of class-leading build quality, pleasingly rich sound, and compact size keeps them firmly in the top-tier of mid-priced miniature speaker systems.

Divoom Voombox-Travel

Ruggedized, portable Bluetooth speakers are getting more and more common, so when a particularly affordable, well-made option crosses our paths, it's notable. The Divoom Voombox Travel, at $49.95, is built to take some hits out in the great outdoors,...

Maxell MXSP-SB3000

Up close it looks a bit like an MDF project your dad knocked together in the 1980s but, given the price tag, Maxell's MXSP-SB3000 has an awful lot going for it in terms of its spec. Its size and strength mean it will accommodate huge TVs up to 80kg in...

Philips SBT30

Philips’ SoundShooter SBT30 is one of the few ultra-portable speakers we feel confident recommending. Its lasting battery, ample sound and near-weightlessness make it a top pick in tiny wireless speakers.

Bose Cinemate 1 SR

Bose has to be different. You can't call the Cinemate 1SR a soundbar, it's a sound array. Likewise, the sub is not a sub, it's an Acoustimass module. Bose is also coy about giving out technical specifications, so I know not what the power output is of...

I.Us I700

If a big, beefy sound at the price appeals, jump right in. But we'd trade a little of the bluster for greater control

Braven 855s

The Braven 855s is a bit overpriced, but it's built like a brick, delivers decent sound and has strong battery life.

Ultimate Ears Boom

At £170, the UE Boom isn't cheap, but it does have an extensive list of features. NFC is quickly becoming a must-have for easy pairing, and the speaker's incredibly tough construction makes it ideal for taking outside the house. The Boom's sound...

Vizio S2121W-D0

The Vizio S2121w-D0 Sound Stand is cheap but not a good value, with quality that pales against the competition -- including Vizio's own sound bars.

Vizio S5430W-C2 3.0 Home Theater Sound Bar

Not all speakers have to get your attention with fancy styling. Sometimes they're just big black boxes with grilles, that make sound—and that's okay. The Vizio S5430W-C2 falls into that category, as a soundbar that isn't exactly eye-catching, but...

Harman JBLONBEATMICBLKAM

Offering surprisingly decent sound for its small size, the JBL OnBeat Micro makes for a good little desktop or bedside speaker and charging station for iPhone 5 owners.

Sony SRS-BTV5/B

The Sony SRS-BTV5 wireless Bluetooth speaker boasts speakerphone and (iffy) NFC capabilities, but it doesn't beat the competition for the price.

Logitech AudioStation Express

After two weeks of using the product on weekdays only, for a few hours each of those days, it simply would not play. I tried the ol' standby, resetting my iPod, unplugging the device, turning it on and off, and finally just allowed the thing to "warm...

Panasonic SC-HTE80

With a footprint of 46 x 28cm the Panasonic SC-HTE80 looks (colour differences aside) like a slightly shrunken version of the Canton DM 50, with largely unadorned surfaces and a dot matrix display hidden behind the cheese-grater grille across the...

Harman-Kardon Sabre SB 35 / 230

Harman Kardon’s Sabre SB35 offers an extremely low-profile design and a gorgeous form factor, but unfortunately, its beauty is mostly skin deep.

LUXA2 Groovy

The Luxa2 Groovy W has poor sound quality. The combination of lo-fi Class D amplifier and low-grade Bluetooth hamper any decent audio quality from this unremarkable speaker. In our tests it had a tiresome sound when tasked with playing music but it may...

Onkyo LS-B50

Don't make the mistake of thinking this entry-level sound bar is better than what the average TV manufacturer has to offer just because it's made by an audio company.
