Sony SRS-X11 (White)

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.

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.
