This little guy travels anywhere and sounds amazingly good for its size. It's waterproof and charges via USB-C, too. Just make sure to clip the $10 coupon to get the full discount.

We've seen the Megaboom 3 at $100 before, but it's still close to its lowest price. It's a little too expensive at $200, but it's a good deal at $100.


Sony's XB43 is the second from the biggest in its line of portable Bluetooth speakers. It's still relatively compact and has more bass and richer sound than the step-down XB33 and XB23. It's pretty pricey at $250 but a much better deal at $150. It has an integrated light-show feature, and it's waterproof.


Sony's XB72 is one of the larger Bluetooth speakers in Sony's line, and it packs some serious punch. Yes, it's portable, but it requires an AC adapter and has some serious heft, weighing 26 pounds (12 kg). It's what one calls a party speaker. It can stand vertically or horizontally and has a light-show feature.

I reviewed Sony's cylindrical SRS-XB23 earlier this year, liked its design and thought it sounded pretty good. The speaker produces a decent amount of bass for its size. However, from a sound standpoint, it didn't really beat competitors in its price range. At less than $60, it's a much more tempting option. 

Note: The deal only applies to black, coral red, light blue, olive green and taupe.

The JBL Clip 3 is one of our favorite micro Bluetooth speakers and it's currently on sale for its lowest price ($30). Available in black, blue and gray at that price, it's fully waterproof. The Clip 4, which has a new design, will be available in December for $70.

JBL's popular Flip 5 is on sale for $70, or about $35 off (it lists for a little over $100). It's a solid little Bluetooth speaker that gets slightly better with each iteration.

David Carnoy/CNET

The JBL Clip 3 is arguably the best travel-friendly wireless speaker, but if you're looking for stocking-stuffer ideas, the UE Wonderboom 2, which offers improved sound and battery life over the original, is a great choice. This wireless speaker is available in about a dozen fun colors, it really can float and it sounds great too, for its size. Its list price is $100, but it's currently $50 for Black Friday.
