Sony SRS-ZR5

Accuracy isn't everything, and we give the SRS-ZR5 high marks for boosting the lows and low-mids in a tasteful way. Add to that its versatility in the connectivity department, its ability to be used in pairs, and the option to tweak the sound signature...

Jabra Solemate

With the Solemate, Jabra took Jawbone’s Jambox head-on, aiming to both emulate it and improve upon it. Both speakers are good, but if you’re choosing between them, I’d give a slight edge to the Solemate: It’s more durable, less prone to vibration...

Braven BRV-1

Braven has made plenty of quality portable Bluetooth speakers geared toward the outdoorsy crowd, but something about the BRV-1M seems off. The audio can distort in unlikely places, like Radiohead tracks, which is a bit surprising, even in this...

Logitech X300

Performance and Conclusions For its size, the X300 packs a pretty impressive sonic punch. It's easily loud enough to fill an entire room with sound, which you can't say for every speaker in this price range. Even on tracks with heavy sub-bass content,...

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.

Samsung R1 (WAM1500)

The R1 is the smallest and most affordable of Samsung's new multiroom speakers, sitting below the R3, R5 and R7 in the range. It may be the cheapest of the new models, but Samsung hasn't skimped on features – it does all the same tricks as the more...

Jabra Solemate Max

If you like the overall sound description of the Solemate Max, but are looking for something smaller, the original Jabra Solemate and the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III are both solid options, but their lower prices and more portable designs mean...

Beats by Dr. Dre Pill 2.0

With an endorsement from a legend like Dr. Dre, you’d expect this wireless speaker to have much better audio quality, but that’s not what you get. The sound is disappointingly thin and lacks bass.

Braven 105 WATERPROOF

Conclusions The Braven 105's bright, crisp sound signature and waterproof design are well-suited for outdoor listening, but it doesn't get quite as loud as some other speakers we've tested, and it has some distortion issues on deep bass tracks. The...

JBL TRIP

If you, like me, have an older car that does not have Bluetooth functionality, you need to give the JBL Trip a look. With some states cracking down on even holding a cell phone while driving, the Trip lets you make calls, send messages, or even ask...

Jawbone MINI Jambox

Jawbone's Mini Jambox is an impressively small, stylish speaker, but it isn't very loud for its size, offers little to no bass, and pales in comparison to the now-$150 full-size Jambox. If you want the best portable Bluetooth speaker we've tested,...

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...

Altec Lansing Life Jacket

In the $150 range, plenty of speakers employ DSP to limit deep bass dynamics (and some other frequency ranges, too) that tend to cause distortion. But the Life Jacket 3 tamps down the dynamics too often, unnecessarily—it's hard to get past this, as it...
