Sony SRS-X33

As mentioned earlier, the SRS-X33 is intriguing—at certain volumes, it sounds fantastic for its size and price, but at higher volumes, it can sound unlistenable. For $130, I still really like the Sony SRS-X33 when listening at moderate volumes. It's an...

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...

Q Acoustics Media 4

The Q Acoustics Media 4’s minimalist features set, built-in subwoofer, and fuss-free sound make for an attractive alternative to bulkier sound bar systems.

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...

Sony SRS-XB2

The difference between the SRS-XB2 and its more expensive sibling is vast: The SRS-XB3 has a second passive radiator and larger drivers that combine to produce a substantially more powerful, bass-forward sound. This is to be expected in a larger...

Samsung R3 / (WAM3500)

The mid-sized of the three in Samsung's 'omnidirectional' R range, the R3s cylindrical design disperses sound evenly around the room. But will it lack the punch of the bigger R5 or be too cumbersome compared to the smaller R1? Find out whether the R3...

Beats by Dr. Dre Pill+ / Pill Plus

Conclusions If there's a real gripe here, it's that the Pill+ sounds markedly different depending on its angle to your ears—an issue that could have been fixed by angling the drivers upward or building in a kickstand that allows you to tilt the speaker...

Sony SRS-X11

As previously mentioned, there are plenty of less expensive portable Bluetooth speakers that offer a slightly better or similar audio experience. If you want to save some money, check out the JBL Clip+, the Logitech X300, and the Skullcandy Shrapnel....

Yamaha YSP-1600

Yamaha’s YSP-1600 is a fine upgrade from just about any TV’s built-in speakers, but it’s not a good choice if you’re also looking for speakers for listening to music.

Vifa Helsinki

Conclusions The distortion shouldn't be viewed as a deal breaker unless you listen almost exclusively to electronic music with loads of deep bass at high volumes. But if you're looking for a system that never has this type of issue in this price range,...

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...
