CNET's favorite speakers, including sound bars, Bluetooth speakers, and full surround sound systems.
While it doesn't play as loud when it's on battery power, the Sony SRS-X5 holds its own against the top Bluetooth speakers in its size and price class.
Though it remains somewhat pricey, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a superlative portable wireless loudspeaker, improving on its already impressive predecessor.
The Bose SoundTouch 20 is a likeable streaming speaker with capable performance and great sound, but it needs to support more music services.
The $200 SRS-X5 delivers excellent sound in a relatively small package and competes directly with the top-selling Bose SoundLink Mini.
Despite some downsides, including a high price, the Bose QuietComfort 20 offers the best noise-canceling in an in-ear headphone and should tempt frequent travelers looking for a more compact alternative to a full-size NC headphone, such as the Bose QuietComfort 15.
While it's fairly expensive at $200, the Bose SoundLink Mini is one of few standout products in the ultracompact wireless speaker category, featuring a top-notch design and very good sound for its tiny size.
Despite a few question marks and a high price, the AE2w headphones are a very good-sounding Bluetooth pair that's lightweight and very comfortable to wear.
While the SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II may no longer be in a class by itself, it's still near the top of the portable Bluetooth speaker category.
Monoprice's Noise Canceling Headphones are about 70 percent as good as the Bose QC15s for a little more than a third of the price.
Although its sonic talents are comparatively modest, the Bose Solo is an exceedingly handsome and easy-to-use sound bar.
