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 ( black)
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 ( red)
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.
Sony SRS-X3 ( white)
With comparably good sound for its size and the addition of speakerphone features, the Sony SRS-X3 mini Bluetooth speaker measures up well against the pricier Bose SoundLink Mini.
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.
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 Onkyo LS-T10 sound stand feels well-built and sounds good with movies, but its lousy music performance makes it tough to recommend.
Transit by Soen
While it's a bit pricey at around $200, the Transit by Soen is one of the more sleekly designed and decent-sounding travel Bluetooth speakers.
Philips BT2500B Wireless Portable Speaker
The Philips BT2500's slim design and budget price make it an appealing, travel-friendly mini Bluetooth speaker.
Braven BRV-1 ( lava)
If you're looking for a compact rugged, water-resistant Bluetooth speaker, the Braven BRV-1 is worth considering now that its street price has dropped to closer to $100.
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.
Fluance Fi30 High Performance Bluetooth Wood Speaker System ( black)
The Fluance's design isn't for everyone, but for those in search of the best sound for their Bluetooth buck, the $149.99 Fi30 is hard to beat.
JBL Flip 2 ( black)
Although its battery life remains a weak point and its price has gone up a bit, the Flip 2 is an improvement over the original Flip and one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers available.
Bose SoundLink Bluetooth speaker III
Though it remains somewhat pricey, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a superlative portable wireless loudspeaker, improving on its already impressive predecessor.
Amazon Basics Portable Bluetooth Speaker
The AmazonBasics Portable Bluetooth Speaker BTV1 is one of the better "generic" mini wireless Bluetooth speakers and a good value at $60.
Logitech UE Mini Boom ( yellow)
While it doesn't do that much to stand out from the crowded field of Bluetooth speakers in the $60-$100 range, the well-built and decent sounding (for its size) UE Mini Boom is a pretty safe choice for those looking for a very compact wireless speaker.
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.
It may not sound quite good as some $200 competitors, but the JBL Pulse's integrated light show adds a flashy new dimension to the listening experience that makes it a worthy contender in a crowded market.
