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.
The Philips HTL5120's distinctive design, low price, and immersive sound make it a tempting budget sound bar pick, although its sound quality isn't a good match for purists.
Bose SoundTouch 20
The Bose SoundTouch 20 is a likeable streaming speaker with capable performance and great sound, but it needs to support more music services.
Logitech Multimedia Speaker Z50 ( Blue)
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 ( white)
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.
Jabra Solemate Max
The Jabra Soulmate Max is a likeable wireless speaker with some strong selling points, but it simply doesn't justify its current $400 price tag.
Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.
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.
