Don't-Miss Speaker Stories

Soundcast VG1 front

Soundcast VG1 Bluetooth speaker review: Incredibly big sound from an itty-bitty waterproof box

The sound that emerges from this small, rugged speaker defies expectations.

SVS Prime Elevation speakers.

SVS Prime Elevation speaker review: An incredibly versatile audio solution for the home theater

These smartly designed speakers are particularly great as the height channels in a Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, or Auro-3D configuration.

The Fi50's build and wood veneer are top notch.

Fluance Fi50 Bluetooth Wood Speaker review: This big box puts out really big sound

The Fi50 sounds more like a bookshelf speaker than a one that sits on a table top. We dig its frequency range, but it's not the best speaker in its price range.

The Marshall Kilburn Bluetooth Wireless Speaker.

Marshall Kilburn Bluetooth speaker review: Vintage style and throwback sound

This no-frills wireless speaker looks, acts, and sounds old school.

bose soundlink iii hero

Bose Soundlink III Bluetooth speaker review: That big Bose sound in a very small package

It's light on features and portability costs extra, but Bose fans will find plenty to like in this small speaker.

Oppo's Sonica is one sweet-sounding wireless speaker.

Oppo Sonica Wi-Fi Speaker: Oppo's first wireless speaker hits a high note

This is easily the best-sounding wireless speaker we've heard that's priced less than $300.

Vava Voom 20

Vava Voom 20 Bluetooth speaker review: Weatherized style with average sound

This stylish $80 outdoor Bluetooth speaker features easy pairing via NFC. For being small, it produces a good amount of bass, but as with many water-resistant speakers, the upper mids and highs are muddled.

Ultimate Ears Megaboom

Ultimate Ears Megaboom Bluetooth speaker review: Built to be the life of the party

This thoroughly weatherized speaker will knock you out with its big sound and awesome feature set.

Chromedock X2 front

Polk Omni S6 in black.

Polk Omni S6 wireless speaker review: Play-Fi hardware is still hobbled by Play-Fi software

This speaker's price tag, sound, and feature set are appealing enough, but it's all undermined by a distinctly mediocre app.

Aukey SK-M12

Aukey SK-M12 Outdoor Bluetooth speaker review: Surprisingly sonorous

Though it reminds us of Altec Lansing's Lifejacket II and has the same mounting hard point, this larger weatherized, Bluetooth speaker has the same clarity with more bottom end.

Mass Fidelity Core

Mass Fidelity Core and Core Sub review: Exceptional Bluetooth speakers

The diminutive Core is one of the best Bluetooth speakers ever. The Core Sub is icing on that sonic cake.

GGMM E3 speaker (front)

GGMM E3 Wireless Smart Speaker review: This little speaker delivers big sound

More than just another Bluetooth speaker, the E3 can also connect to your Wi-Fi network and stream music from cloud-based services such as Spotify.

Sengled Pulse Solo

Sengled Pulse Solo review: You can put a JBL speaker in your lamp. Question is, should you?

What’s possible is not always what’s advisable.
