Antec SP1

At the price of $89, the Antec SP1 is cheaper than other portable Bluetooth speaker like the Jawbone. The cheaper price does sacrifice some features such as Bluetooth 4.0 and an NFC chip. However, we do not think that many people will care much about...

For a reasonable price, the Lightning connection-friendly JBL OnBeat Micro speaker dock delivers more audio power than you might expect from its diminutive frame.

Braven 855s

The Braven 855s is a bit overpriced, but it's built like a brick, delivers decent sound and has strong battery life.

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....

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...

Pioneer XW-SMA4-K

Pioneer’s XW-SMA4 is its premium Wi-Fi hi-fi speaker, with the $100 premium over the cheaper XW-SMA1 translating to a built-in subwoofer. If you listen to a lot of music, or listen to it loud, buying the SMA4 is a no-brainer, but it’s an expensive...

Dayton Audio B652

If you are on a tight budget, you won’t find bookshelf speakers under $100 that sound as good as the B652. They provide great value and can serve well as your surround sound speakers.

Orbitsound M10

Soundbar manufacturers try all sorts of trickery to create a convincing surround effect in the absence of rear speakers and Orbitsound has hit upon a more effective solution than most with the M10 soundbar.

Bose SoundTouch 20 II Wi-Fi music system (white)

Bose is a relative newcomer to the multiroom lark, but as ever it likes to do things a little differently. Its SoundTouch range uses bog-standard 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi to operate but it manages to be simultaneously more versatile and less convenient than...

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...

Onkyo LS-T30

But despite the LS-T30 strengths, it isn’t the complete package we’d expect at this price. Everyone’s having a crack at soundbases, but only a few are getting great results. Onkyo just isn’t one of them. Not just yet, anyway. MORE: Best soundbases 2015...

LUXA2 Groovy

The Luxa2 Groovy W has poor sound quality. The combination of lo-fi Class D amplifier and low-grade Bluetooth hamper any decent audio quality from this unremarkable speaker. In our tests it had a tiresome sound when tasked with playing music but it may...
