JBL Xtreme

If you're looking for more bass response and overall power out of a portable Bluetooth speaker, you've probably figured out that you'll need to spend more money and accept that "portable" might not necessarily mean "small." The JBL Xtreme, at $299.95,...

KEF EGG

Part of the excitement the Egg imparts is the unexpected scale of its soundstage and the brilliant effect of its stereo separation. It is excels in almost every aspect at which even the most advanced one-box speakers fail. And underscoring it all is...

Libratone Zipp

The Zipp is a very good and versatile wireless speaker, but Sonos has much better multi-room audio infrastructure.

Denon Envaya Mini DSB-100

The eye-catching Denon Envaya Mini is a mighty portable speaker capable of delivering big, burbling bass and quality audio over the airwaves. Genuinely portable, with its own carry case included, we can't think of a more desirable sub-£100 small-scale...

Denon HEOS 7

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...

Sony SRS-X88

Nonetheless, we like this speaker a lot. It doesn't quite rival the class-leaders, which in this case would be Geneva's Award-winning Model S Wireless DAB+, but from its sophisticated design to its bold and spacious sound – and the fact it is now...

Sony SRS-X11

Portable Bluetooth speakers come in all shapes and sizes now, but few are quite as travel-friendly as Sony's SRS-X11. The SRS-X11 is a tiny 2-inch cube that can be tossed in a bag or carried by the included strap. For $69.99, however, the speaker is...

The Hercules WAE Outdoor Rush is a pretty decent speaker with crisp, clean sound, FM Radio functionality, good battery life, and its IP67 water and dust resistant ratings.

Denon HEOS 1

The Denon Heos 1 offers very good sound for a small multi-room speaker, but the app experience and support lags behind the competition.

Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth speaker

Would I recommend the speakers? Yes and No. Yes for a minimalistic elegant design with lovely funky colour options, and decent sound for the price of Rs 2,000 makes this good buy.

JBL Boost TV

Music Performance and Conclusions While the TV Boost handles movies and games very well, it lacks the subtlety and flexibility needed to really do justice to music. On the fast, crowded mix of Iron Maiden's "Powerslave," Bruce Dickinson's vocals fade...

Razer Leviathan Mini

Performance and Conclusions You wouldn't expect a speaker this size to deliver much bass, or to do so without coming close to distortion, but a speaker this price is another story. On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent...

The Klipsch Groove is a compact portable Bluetooth speaker with surprising power in the bass department, but it makes some compromises elsewhere.

Klipsch Reference R-115SW

I was starting to think that mainstream speaker companies had no business in today's subwoofer business because they can't deliver the kind of value and performance that some of the Internet-only guys can. The R-115SW proves that notion wrong. It's...

Martin Logan Motion 35XT

The Martin Logan 35XTs aren’t quite the nimble performers their smaller siblings are – more get-up-and-go wouldn’t go amiss – and they aren’t the most talented or all-round speakers on the market. But if you’re willing to compromise here and there, and...

Boom 2 is an excellent follow-up that adds a waterproof housing, gesture control, and playback from two source devices at the same time—not to mention you can pair it with your original model to double up the sound.

Sonos Playbar

At $699, the Sonos PLAYBAR is a very good, somewhat expensive, sound bar. If the price was lower, it would certainly be a very easy recommendation (“no brainer” would comer to mind). But since it’s not, I would urge you to look at your actual needs.
