CNET's favorite speakers, including sound bars, Bluetooth speakers, and full surround sound systems.
The Braven 855s is a bit overpriced, but it's built like a brick, delivers decent sound and has strong battery life.
The Fluance's design isn't for everyone, but for those in search of the best sound for their Bluetooth buck, the $149.99 Fi30 is hard to beat.
Though it remains somewhat pricey, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a superlative portable wireless loudspeaker, improving on its already impressive predecessor.
The AmazonBasics Portable Bluetooth Speaker BTV1 is one of the better "generic" mini wireless Bluetooth speakers and a good value at $60.
Although its battery life remains a weak point and its price has gone up a bit, the Flip 2 is an improvement over the original Flip and one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers available.
While it doesn't do that much to stand out from the crowded field of Bluetooth speakers in the $60-$100 range, the well-built and decent sounding (for its size) UE Mini Boom is a pretty safe choice for those looking for a very compact wireless speaker.
While it doesn't beat the sound of some competing speakers in its $200 price class, the Klipsch Gig gets a lot of things right, offering a strong design and feature set along with comparatively deep bass for a speaker its size.
It may not sound quite good as some $200 competitors, but the JBL Pulse's integrated light show adds a flashy new dimension to the listening experience that makes it a worthy contender in a crowded market.
Logitech's well-designed Z600 wireless Bluetooth speakers deliver true stereo separation and good sound -- so long as you don't crank the volume too much.
Cambridge SoundWorks' Oontz Curve has some shortcomings and isn't head and shoulders above the rest of the tiny budget wireless Bluetooth speaker world, but you're not going to do too much better for $30.
