Google Home Mini

The Google Home Mini stands tall as one of the best affordable smart speakers out there, along with the Amazon Echo Dot, but it doesn't do enough to supplant the Dot at the top of the list.

Google Home

The Google Home is a great smart speaker with a ton of capabilities, but you have so many smart speaker options at this point that I'm less inclined to recommend this well balanced middle child.

Apple HomePod

Apple's HomePod doesn't match the features offered on Alexa and Google Assistant speakers. But if you’re an iPhone user who prizes sound quality above all, you should seriously consider this speaker.

Amazon Echo 2017

Alexa is still the most compelling voice control platform, and the new and improved Echo should only boost her momentum. It's well worth $100.

Yamaha YAS-207

The Yamaha YAS-207 is an excellent sound bar package which offers sound quality which soars above others' at the price.

Sonos One

The Alexa-powered Sonos One is the first smart speaker that actually sounds good with music -- and even more new features will be coming to it in the months ahead.

Klipsch Reference R-51M

The Klipsch Reference R-51M combines throwback looks and thoroughly exciting sound in an affordable package.

Amazon Echo Dot 2nd Generation, black

The Echo Dot takes Amazon's popular smart home speaker and wraps it in an ultra-affordable package -- but the Google Home Mini is a very worthy competitor.

JBL Flip 4

A nice upgrade over its predecessor, the Flip 4 is one of the best speakers in its size and price class.

Bose SoundLink Revolve+

Bose's expensive SoundLink Plus is arguably the best-sounding Bluetooth speaker for its size.

Polk Command Bar

The Polk Command Bar's mix of features and elevated sound quality makes it the best Alexa-compatible sound bar yet.

Bose SoundLink Micro

The well-built and travel-friendly Bose SoundLink Micro is arguably the best sounding speaker in its tiny size class.

JBL Charge 4

Due out this fall, the fully waterproof JBL Charge 4 offers improved sound, battery life and USB-C connectivity.

Elac Debut 2.0 B6.2

The Elac Debut 2.0 B6.2 is one of the best speakers at this price, with great sound and excellent build quality.

Editors' Choice

Pioneer SP-SB23W

The Pioneer SP-SB23W is the best affordable sound bar if you care about sound quality, with its outstanding sonics making up for some of its design limitations.
