Bose SoundLink Color II

For its size, the Bose SoundLink Color II delivers a very solid audio experience, with rich lows matched with crisp highs. Anyone seeking a massive subwoofer-like sound, or a super-accurate sound signature, will need to spend more money on a larger,...

LG SH5

I'd also say the SH5 is a worthy upgrade over some of our other top budget soundbars, such as the Steljes Audio Calliope. The SH5’s dedicated subwoofer makes a big difference to the overall depth and warmth of the music, and the LG’s superior build...

Bose SoundLink Mini II

It's pretty clear that the SoundLink Mini boosts bass, but mostly in the low-mids and lows rather than the sub-bass realm. In fact, sub-bass can get limited by the speaker's DSP, depending on the volume level. All this considered, this is probably the...

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.

Logitech UE Megaboom

There’s only one thing we don’t like about the UE Megaboom: the price tag. $300 is a serious tax to pay for the kind of weatherproofing that’s really only necessary for the perpetual outdoor adventurer — or the terribly careless. If you’re not so sure...

Sony SRS-XB3

No matter the mode, the Sony SRS-XB3 provides a bass punch that we rarely hear in speakers this size and price. If you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker in the sub-$200 price range, this is the one to get—you can consider the water-resistant...

Libratone ONE Click

Yamaha YSP-5600
