Bluetooth speakers under $200

Speakers
Bluetooth speakers are an easy, practically magical way to stream music from your phone or tablet. But the best ones can be expensive. And the cheap ones don't sound much better than speaker in your phone. I'm Donald Bell. And in this Top 5, I'm counting down five of the best sounding speakers in that sweat spot between $100 and $200 selected by CNET executive editor David Carnoy. Starting off at number five, the Sony SRS-X3. Sony holds up its reputation for sound quality with this feature-packed sound brick, priced at around $150. Along with great sound, you get speakerphone capability an NFC tap-to-pair feature and seven hours of rechargeable battery life. At number four, the Bose Soundlink Color. Bose, you say? In color? It's hard to believe, but they managed to make a relatively hip looking speaker here, that sounds great and can be snatched up for just $129. It charges over micro USB and it comes in five colors. Coming in at number three. The TDK Trek Max A34. I think they missed an opportunity here to make this thing look like a giant cassette tape. But the design is still pretty cool. It's water resistant too making it a great choice to keep in the kitchen or the patio. Eight hours of rechargeable battery life. $150 bucks. At number two. The Bose Soundlink Mini. This one comes in right at $199, but you get that Bose tucked-shirt, grown up design, and the extra fidelity that Bose is known for. No speaker phone feature on this one, but the charging cradle is pretty genius. And finally, our pick for the best sounding bluetooth speaker under $200, at number one. The Logitech UE Boom. Here's a speaker that looks as loud as it sounds. It's water-resistant and works as a speaker phone, and offers up to 15 hours of battery life. It's not cheap at $199, but it makes a statement, it sounds great, and could probably survive an extreme weekend without breaking or running out of power. [NOISE] So there you go. Five affordable great sounding bluetooth speakers. For more recommendations on the best speakers out there head over to CNet.com/speakers, and for more top fives from me, top5.cnet.com. I'm Donald Bell, thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
