Teufel Concept E

At £350 plus £20 for delivery, the Concept E is a powerful 5.1 system that seems to fill a rather tight niche. If you watch most of your films and TV shows through on-demand or catch-up services on a laptop, the built-in sound card can add true...

Definitive Technology's Incline is a stereo desktop PC speaker system with plenty of power and lovely balance. The angled contour delivers sound upward to the listener's ears, which is a design decision often overlooked by competitors. At $399, the...

Logitech 984-000044

For everyday use, we prefer a dock-connected speaker system for keeping our gear charged while playing, but the Logitech Wireless Boombox is an excellent choice for cutting the cord. A great addition to any mobile user’s arsenal, it produces rich sound...

X-Mini X-MINI V1.1 Capsule Silver

I like the compatibility with various devices bit and little features like a lid over the port and a small groove for the audio cable is all nice. Also, the V 1.1 is just a single unit speaker, so it does add to the portability. However, there's not...

LG Electronics NB3530A

The soundbar kicks out an impressive sounding 300W of power, while LG’s 3D Surround Processor aims to make stereo sound feel more immersive. With a lack of HDMI inputs comes a lack of HD audio decoding, but the LG will decode Dolby Digital and DTS.

Sony SRS-BTS50(B)

At £125, this speaker has a great range of features for the price. It's not as loud as the Cambridge Audio Minx Go, but it's also much more portable and supports both NFC and aptX. It's that convenience you'll be paying for here, rather than outright...

Elipson Planet M

At £1200, the Elipson Planet LW wireless speaker system is by no stretch cheap. You can pick up an Apple AirPlay-certified B&W Zeppelin Air for half the price and stream music to your heart's content. In fact, some will even prefer the artistic design...

Philips SBT30

Philips’ SoundShooter SBT30 is one of the few ultra-portable speakers we feel confident recommending. Its lasting battery, ample sound and near-weightlessness make it a top pick in tiny wireless speakers.

The Pioneer A3 is a good sounding speaker, with AirPlay and other wireless compatibility. The water-proofing and battery are both a nice touch, and it’s great for taking into the garden. This makes up for the sound quality, which is okay, but not...

Panasonic SC-NT10

The $100 price range of portable Bluetooth speakers is a tricky space to navigate—there's no shortage of options, but how many of them actually sound good? You might forgive the $99.99 (list) Panasonic SC-NT10 if it didn't sound superb—it's loaded with...

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...

Orbitsound SB60 Airsound BASE

Get used to the Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base and you’ll quickly forget just how bad standard TV audio so often is. For the price the SB60 delivers plenty of audio thump and the adjustable EQ and built-in down-firing sub see that quality remains high.

Braven BZ570BBP

It's tough to stand out from other Bluetooth speakers in the $100 price range, where the quality often seems modest and comparable speaker to speaker. The Braven 570, which is $99.99 (direct), doesn't emerge as a clear winner, but it also does nothing...

Jamo D 600 SUR

This control panel sounds funky, but feels oddly old-fashioned with its green lights and cumbersome operation. In fact the subs as a whole are a little underwhelming - they're big, ugly and at 32kg a piece, very heavy. Lucky they're meant to be hidden...
