The JBL Clip 3 is one of our favorite mini speakers and is currently on sale for the lowest price ($ 30). Available in black, blue and gray at this price, it is completely waterproof. The Clip 4, which features a new design, will be available in December for $ 70. Read our review of the JBL Clip 3.

The JBL Clip 3 Arguably the best wireless speaker for travel, but if you’re looking for storage ideas, the UE Wonderboom 2, which offers improved sound and better battery life than the original, is a great option. Available in about ten fun colors, this wireless speaker can really float and also look great for its size. His list price is $ 100, but he’s currently $ 50 for Black Friday.

The popular Flip 5 from JBL retails for $ 70, or about $ 35 (it lists just over $ 100). It’s a solid little bluetooth speaker that gets a bit better with each iteration.

The SoundLink Color II has been out of Bose for quite some time but it remains one of the best options in the size category and is more enticing at $ 80 than $ 130. It’s available in several color options at this price, although it’s not in the red shown in the photo (that’s the color of our review sample).

We’ve seen Megaboom 3 at $ 100 before, but it’s still close to its lowest price. It’s a little bit pricey at $ 200, but it’s a good deal at $ 100.

I reviewed Sony’s barrel SRS-XB23 earlier this year and loved its design and thought it sounded pretty good, producing just the right amount of bass for its volume. However, from a sound point of view, it did not really outperform competitors in its price range. At $ 60, it’s a much more tempting option.


Sony’s XB72 is one of the largest bluetooth speakers in the Sony line and it does pack some serious features. Yes, it’s portable but it requires an AC adapter and has some serious weight, weighing 26 lbs (12 kg). It is what one calls a party speaker. It can be lifted vertically or horizontally and has light projection feature.
