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...

Creative Sound Blaster FREE

Coming to the price, this costs Rs 8,000 MRP which is too much for this quality of speakers. At Rs 6,500, it would make a better deal. But nonetheless be aware of what you get.

Philips BM5

Of course, with the simplicity of the izzylink system come certain limitations compared to more fully-fledged multiroom systems. Needing to have a Bluetooth device within range of a Master speaker won’t be ideal for everyone and some will prefer a more...

Sony h.ear go

While the H.ear Go is a decent speaker, nothing about it would compel me to spend $200 when there are so many superior options available, in terms of both audio performance and operation. All those extra features become more or less pointless when a...

Harman Kardon Onyx Studio Mini

The Harman Kardon Onyx Mini is one of the better desktop Bluetooth speakers we've tested lately. It delivers a very healthy bass response in the above-100Hz realm, and thus sounds quite rich. Pair that with bright, crisp high frequency response, and...

Marshall Acton

In the end, though, Marshall Acton speaker is seriously really cool, and it looks just as good as it sounds. I actually admire the design of it more than the audio quality. That’s not a dig on how bad it sounds (it doesn’t sound bad at all), but merely...

The House Of Marley Chant Mini

The Marley Chant Mini is, for the price, a fairly decent speaker, thanks in part to the booming bass of the Chant Mini that makes up for the non-existent high-end - especially if you’re into music with heavy bass lines (Drum and Bass, Dubstep, etc)....

Harman Kardon Esquire Mini

The Harman Kardon Esquire Mini is a great-looking micro Bluetooth speaker that works quite well as a speakerphone, but is bass-challenged, so it isn't much of a music speaker.
