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.

Samsung R5 Multiroom 360

The Samsung R5 proved to be a great all-round wireless speaker that delivered a lovely sound for a decent price. It was large enough to produce an open room-filling sound and its omni-directional design eliminated the sweet spot, producing audio that...

Solo Bar Plus is a modified version of Arcam's debut soundbar, which launched at the tail end of 2014. Its astonishing feature list, stunning design and refined sound secured it a positive 9/10 score in my review, but I remarked that the Solo subwoofer...

These speakers needed another review, and since I've owned them for 10 months, I think I can say without question that they will be with me for the long term. I upgraded from a wonderful stand-mounted speaker (NOLA Boxers) because I needed to hear more...
