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.

Fugoo TOUGH

As an unknown entering a crowded audio category, Fugoo put together a solid speaker that carries impressively good sound in a small footprint. That it’s waterproof and somewhat customizable makes it all the more versatile. Its overall look might imply...

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...

Braven 855s

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

Pioneer XW-SMA4-K

Pioneer's XW-SMA4 is its premium Wi-Fi hi-fi speaker, with the $100 premium over the cheaper XW-SMA1 translating to a built-in subwoofer. If you listen to a lot of music, or listen to it loud, buying the SMA4 is a no-brainer, but it's an expensive...

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

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 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...

Sol Republic Deck

While its sound quality may not best our favorite Bluetooth speakers, the Deck offers a user experience and feature-set unmatched by its competition, and that’s worth a lot.

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.

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...

Samsung HW-F450

Looks cool, but the sound is very mediocre. Most importantly, once it was all set up, whenever something with expectedly HD sound was playing, the sound would cut out every minute or so for a second, as if it was syncing the wireless subwoofer. Pretty...

We’re struggling to find any fault with this system: the fact that you’ll need to spend extra money on quality speaker stands is the only thing that comes to mind, and that just goes to show how impressive this KEF speaker package really is.
