CNET Top 5
Top 5 Bluetooth speakers you can buyPicking a Bluetooth speaker can be really tough. These are the best ones you can get.
[MUSIC] We do a lot of testing here at CNET. These are the top five bluetooth speakers available right now as compiled by CNET editor David Carnoy. At number five is the Bose SoundLink Mini II. It comes in two colors, carbon and pearl, what us normal people called black and white It's pretty hefty at 1.5 pounds, but it's really slick. The Bose Soundlink Mini II is a fine speaker for your bedroom or kitchen. At number 4, the JBL Charge 2+. What makes this speaker great? Sit down. Let's talk. It's called the Charge, because you can use it to charge other devices over USB. Now, it's not waterproof, but it is splash proof. So using it in the shower may not be the best idea. However, this thing is loud for its size. And number three, the UE Boom 2. Never heard of UE? Now you have. The UE Boom 2 is compact, which makes it portable. It's waterproof and its drop resistant up to 1.5 meters. This speaker features gesture controls. You can double-tap the top of the speaker to skip a track or tap once to pause the music. When it comes to casual listening, the UE Boom 2 will make you happy. At number two, the UE MegaBoom. Now that you've heard of UE, here's the MegaBoom. Obviously it's larger than the Boom since it's the MegaBoom and it offers more bass. Than the boom. This thing is waterproof and has longer range bluetooth so you can be up to 100 feet away from the speaker and still be connected. You can even turn the mega boom on or off using the free UE app. It's pretty expensive but the UE MEGABOOM is worth the mega bucks. I'm sorry. Or am I? Yes, I am sorry. And the number one Bluetooth speaker you can get is the JBL Pulse 2. Let's get the obvious out of the way first. This is one cool looking speaker because it features 12 different light show options that matches whatever music you're playing. You can also link two JBL Pulse 2 speakers, wirelessly, if you want. It's splash proof, but not waterproof. How about sound? It's one of the best sounding compact Bluetooth speakers out there. Put that all together and you can see why it's number one.
