Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73-LR
The Pioneer Elite SP-EBS73-LR is, hands down, the very best-sounding bookshelf/surround speaker we've heard in its price class.
PSB Imagine X2T
The PSB Imagine X2T delivers big speaker sound, ideal for full-throttle home-theater thrills, without sacrificing refinement when reproducing music.
Beats Pill XL ( pink)
The combination of the Pill XL's strong sound, excellent design and feature set make it a reasonable value despite its elevated price tag.
Dayton Audio B452
While Dayton Audio's entry-level B452 bookshelf speaker's sound won't seduce too many audiophiles, it's remarkably satisfying for a speaker in its ultrabargain price class.
Sol Republic Punk ( black)
The Sol Republic Punk manages to distinguish itself from the micro Bluetooth speaker competition with better battery life, slightly louder sound with minimal distortion, a water-resistant design and longer wireless range.
JBL Charge 2
The JBL Charge 2 is an attractive, sturdy portable Bluetooth speaker with strong battery life and the power to juice up your gadgets, but its decent sound is held back by uneven performance.
Klipsch Reference RF-62 II ( black)
The Klipsch RF-62 II floor-standers are the speaker equivalent of a 1970s American muscle car -- big, fun and brash.
Bowers and Wilkins 685 S2
Whether you listen to death metal or nature documentaries, the Bowers and Wilkins B&W 685 S2s are an astoundingly good set of speakers and an excellent deal at this price level.
Bose SoundLink Color ( blue)
The Bose SoundLink Color delivers solid Bluetooth sound in an attractive, portable package.
Logitech X100 ( red)
The travel-friendly X100 is one of the better micro wireless speakers, featuring decent sound for its size, an attractive design, and speakerphone capabilities.
Klipsch SB 120
If you favor performance over convenience and good looks, the natural and musical Klipsch SB 120 speaker stand is a decent buy.
Logitech X300 Mobile Wireless Stereo speaker ( blue)
At around $60 online, the decently performing and well-designed Logitech X300 is a relative bargain in the mini Bluetooth speaker category.
The Monoprice MBS-650 are best-sounding ultrabudget bookshelf speakers, if you can live with the generic styling.
Monster Superstar Speaker ( Blue)
While it doesn't live up to its billing as "the world's smallest audiophile Bluetooth speaker," the Monster SupersStar has some nice attributes, including a slim, splash-resistant design and built-in speakerphone.
JBL Clip ( Black)
The JBL Clip is good for someone looking for a very compact, travel-friendly wireless speaker that's more affordable than the Jambox Mini.
Scosche BoomBottle H2O ( grey)
While it has its sound limitations, particularly in the bass department, the downsized version of Scosche's BoomBottle H2O is a pretty decent little wireless speaker that's travel-friendly and repels water.
Divoom Voombox Outdoor ( black)
While Voombox Outdoor doesn't quite knock it out of the park with its sound quality, it plays very loudly for its size and offers a sturdy build quality for an affordable price.
The Micca MB42's classy, compact design makes it a top budget speaker when style counts, although Monoprice's MBS-650 sound better for even less.
The Braven 855s is a bit overpriced, but it's built like a brick, delivers decent sound and has strong battery life.
The Onkyo LS-T10 sound stand feels well-built and sounds good with movies, but its lousy music performance makes it tough to recommend.
