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

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

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.

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.

JBL Charge 3 Bluetooth speaker review: Play all day, play all night

JBL's Charge 3 Bluetooth speaker can run for an astounding 20 hours between charges. Party hardy folks!

JBL Boost TV

JBL Boost TV review: There are great small speakers. This isn't one of them

We like the idea of a sound bar for smaller rooms and smaller TVs, but the Boost TV’s performance leaves much to be desired.

Naim Mu-so Qb

Naim Audio Mu-so Qb wireless speaker review: It sounds as beautiful as it looks, it just doesn’t get loud enough

It’ll fill the smaller spaces in your home with sound, but you’ll need its bigger sibling for the living room.

Altec Lansing Mini LifeJacket III

Altec Lansing Mini Lifejacket III review: This rugged Bluetooth speaker isn't just water resistant, it's fully submersible

With just enough top-end sparkle to keep things clear, the MIni Lifejacket III is the best-sounding waterproof Bluetooth speaker we've heard.
