Though it remains somewhat pricey, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a superlative portable wireless loudspeaker, improving on its already impressive predecessor.
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.
With a very Apple-like design, the SoundLink Mini is a swankier -- and better-sounding -- alternative to the Jawbone Jambox.
At $129.95, the SoundLink Color is Bose's least expensive portable Bluetooth speaker to date and the $249.95 SoundLink On-Ear is the first on-ear Bluetooth headphone from Bose.
The $200 SRS-X5 delivers excellent sound in a relatively small package and competes directly with the top-selling Bose SoundLink Mini.
Bose has released a sonically improved version of its wireless SoundLink Mobile speaker and has also added the SoundLink Air, its first Apple AirPlay-enabled speaker.
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.
We'll take the top two wireless Bluetooth speakers and throw them into the Prizefight ring. Which one is worth your $300? It's the Bose SoundLink vs. the Jawbone Big Jambox.
There are plenty of compact wireless Bluetooth speaker options, but the SoundLink Mini stands out for its stellar design and impressive sound for its size.
The $150 Sony CMT-MX500i might serve as a terrific starter hi-fi or holiday present; either way the Audiophiliac thinks it's a sweet little system.
