Philips Flex

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.

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.

Monoprice 8250

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

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

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.

Logitech Multimedia Speaker Z50 ( Grey)

The Logitech Z50 is about as no-frills as you get for a multimedia speaker, but at $20 it's not a bad deal for the sound it delivers.

Klipsch Gig
REVIEW

Klipsch Gig ( black)

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.
