Bose SoundLink Color ( green)
The Bose SoundLink Color delivers solid Bluetooth sound in an attractive, portable package.
Although it's not as good a value as our favorite sound bars, the higher-end Klipsch R-10B offers excellent performance for both movies and music.
Pioneer SP-SB03 Speaker Base
The hulking Pioneer Sound Base delivers some of the best sound we've heard from an affordable pedestal-style sound stand.
The Vizio S2121w-D0 Sound Stand is cheap but not a good value, with quality that pales against the competition -- including Vizio's own sound bars.
Bowers and Wilkins CM1 S2 ( rosenut)
The Bowers & Wilkins CM1 S2 speakers look great and sound terrific, but they aren't the best choice for rockers.
Logitech X100 ( orange)
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.
Nyne Bass ( white)
While it's not terribly compact, the Nyne Bass lives up to its name and outperforms many portable Bluetooth speakers that cost more.
Philips Blu-ray Surround Base HTB3525B
The Philips HTB3525B packs Blu-ray, Smart TV, and Bluetooth into an affordable sound bar, making it a great choice if you're looking for an all-in-one system.
TDK Life on Record TREK Max A34 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker
The TDK Life on Record Trek Max A34 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker delivers very good sound for its size and affordable price, and it's well suited to both indoor and outdoor use with a sturdy, splashproof design.
