What would life be without music? If you're a music lover like I am, you probably listen to your favorite songs through headphones or speakers, no matter where you are. It's easier than ever to stay connected with Bluetooth capabilities, and most audio technology comes equipped with it.

When you look at the top performers in the audio technology space, JBL is consistent in its production of quality products. There's a reason why five of the company's speakers are on our list of top Bluetooth speakers for 2023. Right now, two JBL speakers are just $60 and $40, down from their original prices of $180 and $120.

These Link speakers offer easy music streaming with powerful JBL sound and 360-degree audio. That means clear highs, sharp mids and deep bass with either speaker. With Google Assistant built into both options, you can play and control your favorite music, access Spotify, YouTube Music and Apple Music without pressing any buttons. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and AirPlay 2 are all also on-board. 

The Link Portable offers up to 8 hours of portable playtime, is fully waterproof and comes with a charging cradle that you can pop the speaker into when it needs some juice. The Link Music doesn't boast the same ruggedness or portability, but if you need a stationary Assistant-powered smart speaker, you'll struggle to find one that sounds as good for $40.
