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...

Scandyna Micropod

A speaker this small is never going to be a full-range dambuster, yet it excels as a small-scale monitor. If you like the looks, you’re halfway to appreciating its delicate and insightful sound.

Sony SRS-BTV5/B

You can't easily get big sound out of a small object, and when a speaker is designed first and foremost to be tiny, you can be confident it won't rock the house. Sony's Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speaker SRS-BTV5 is proof of that. This $69.99 (direct)...

Pioneer XW-SMA3

It’s obvious by the traces of Andrew Jones’s signature all over the SMA3 packaging that Pioneer is proud of their acclaimed speaker engineer, and they should be. The sound the SMA3 reproduces on most styles of music is nothing short of phenomenal....

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

Flawed sound quality lets the side down, but LG’s stylish soundbar/sub combi brings a welcome boost for TV audio and offers lots of features for the money.

Libratone A/S 8087708

Libratone markets their new Live and Lounge AirPlay speakers as "Scandinavia in your living room." Well, apparently this isn't the Ikea Scandinavia but the more expensive, "cashmere-wrapped" Scandinavia. The speakers do boast not only the ability to...

Panasonic SC-NT10

The $100 price range of portable Bluetooth speakers is a tricky space to navigate—there's no shortage of options, but how many of them actually sound good? You might forgive the $99.99 (list) Panasonic SC-NT10 if it didn't sound superb—it's loaded with...

We like the well-rounded and powerful audio performance of the Logitech Z553 speakers. While the design may not suit all tastes, and they're not designed for portability, they're well built. Multiple inputs and the control pod make the Z553 a great...

Vizio S2121W-D0

Decidedly ordinary in design, features, and performance, Vizio’s new S2121w-D0 Sound Stand is a pinch hitter for a traditional sound bar at best. However, the company may have seen the writing on the wall, since online prices have begun to drop. At...

Orbitsound SB60 Airsound BASE

The Orbitsound SB60 stands out from the crowd somewhat as a soundbase speaker with a glossy finish. This runs the risk of incurring scuff marks or scratches and adds to the cost. Handled with care though, it does look the part. For added interior...

Divoom Bluetune-BEAN

At $29.99 (direct), it would be ridiculous to have great expectations for the Divoom Bluetune Bean portable Bluetooth speaker. Basically, as long as it turns on, pairs, and emits some form of listenable audio, it's doing its job. On tracks that don't...
