REVIEW

Monster SoundStage S1

The Monster SoundStage S1 offers a huge, party-ready sound in a small box coupled with exhaustive connectivity, but subtle it is not.

REVIEW

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.

Dayton Audio B452
REVIEW

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 ( red)

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
REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

Monoprice 8250

The Monoprice MBS-650 are best-sounding ultrabudget bookshelf speakers, if you can live with the generic styling.

Monster Superstar Speaker ( Black)

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.

Scosche BoomBottle H2O
REVIEW

Scosche BoomBottle H2O ( yellow)

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.

REVIEW

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.

Micca MB42
REVIEW

Micca MB42

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.
