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...

Dali Zensor 3

The Dali Zensor 3s are a great success. More than that, they’re a treat. They don’t put a foot wrong, and they’ll occupy you for hours.

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...

Yamaha YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector

Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.

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.

Pioneer XW-SMA3

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...

While its sound quality may not best our favorite Bluetooth speakers, the Deck offers a user experience and feature-set unmatched by its competition, and that’s worth a lot.

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...

Braven 710

Once Bluetooth speakers graduate a certain price range—say, above $150—we expect certain things of them. One of those things is that they don't distort. Braven's 710 speaker, at $169.99 (direct), is a disappointment in that respect. It only distorts on...

Audio Pro Allroom AIR ONE

When you add up all the pluses and minuses, for me, the Audio Pro Allroom Air One doesn't quite earn the white gloves that it didn't really need in the first place, mostly due to its uneven frequency response. Again, though, the boosts in upper-mid and...
