KEF Audio X300A

If you're an audiophile with the means, you'll do well to look at the KEF X300A ($799.99 direct). It's an ideal pair of speakers for an apartment, office, or study, and it includes a digital USB connection for improved, all-digital sound when connected...

Yamaha YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector

Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.

JBL Clip

Expectations for audio excellence should be checked at the door when shopping for small, inexpensive Bluetooth speakers. The $49.95 JBL Clip subverts those checked expectations with surprisingly good audio performance that rarely distorts (and even...

Harman Kardon AURA

The Harman Kardon Aura looks more like a work of art than a speaker, but it can do the job of both. While the $399.95 device looks striking, with a clear, curved dome and subtle lighting, it's also a functional and powerful wireless speaker that...

Jabra Solemate Max

The $300-and-above price realm is tricky territory for Bluetooth speakers—you expect a certain level of audio performance for that price, often delivered in dedicated plug-in speakers like the Editors' Choice Marshall Stanmore. If the speaker is...

Logitech X100

The Logitech X100 Mobile Wireless Speaker delivers surprisingly big sound for its nearly pocket-friendly size, although we don’t recommend relying on it for important hands-free speakerphone calls.

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...

Logitech X300 Bluetooth

Logitech has been on a tear when it comes to Bluetooth speakers, especially with its Ultimate Ears (UE) line. We were impressed by the UE Boom, and the UE Mobile Boombox managed to take home our Editors' Choice award. The new X300 Mobile Wireless...

Ruark Audio MR1

We’re seriously impressed with the Ruark MR1s. Not only do they give the larger Epoz Aktimate Micros a run for their money in terms of pure sound quality, they do so from a much smaller, more stylish shell.

Creative Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200

Creative impressed us when it released the Sound Blaster Roar SB20. It didn't have the best audio quality available, but it packed so many features into a $200 unit when most Bluetooth speakers in that price range only offer speakerphone functionality...

Sonos PLAY:5 / ZonePlayer S5

Several hours of critical listening left our ears feeling a bit fatigued—an issue we didn’t encounter with B&W’s Zeppelin (not entirely an apples-to-oranges comparison, since the Zeppelin is a non-networked iPod dock), but the S5 was a huge hit when we...

Libratone ZIPP

The wireless Libratone Zipp is portable, ultra-stylish, and a solid audio performer at moderate volumes, but its signal processing will be a turn-off for some.

Canton DM 75

Canton's DM 50, reviewed last year, is perhaps best used with TVs around the 48in mark; the step-up DM 75 on test here supports screens up to 60in (or up to 40kg in weight). Bigger screens need a bigger sound and the DM 75's roomier cabinet should...

Loewe Speaker 2GO 2.1

Overall then, this is definitely one of the best-designed Bluetooth speakers out there, oozing quality from every orifice. Practical touches abound as well, very much not all mouth no trousers. However, priced at a salty £269 you'd be expecting a...

Canton DM 50

Canton released two new surround bars today, the DM 50 and DM 9. The DM 50 is more of a surround platform for your display rather than a bar. The DM 9 is a traditional bar. Both have Bluetooth 4.0.
