Samsung HW-J7500
REVIEW

Samsung HW-J7500

Plenty of non-curved sound bars sound better, and for less money, so you'll be paying a pretty penny for the privilege of the Samsung HW-JS7500's curved design.

UE Roll
REVIEW

UE Roll ( Volcano)

You can get cheaper Bluetooth speakers that do the job, but the small yet versatile UE Roll has more to distinguish itself for the price -- both in terms of design and performance.
