Don't-Miss Speaker Stories

Sound Blaster Roar 2

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 review: Truly the Leatherman of portable Bluetooth speakers

This small speaker delivers an excellent audio performance, and its expansive feature set is off the hook for the price.

Big Jambox

Jawbone Big Jambox review: Bigger, better, jammier than the original

Striking design, excellent musical performance, and a strong value all the way around.

JBL Xtreme

JBL Xtreme review: Enough boom to fill a very big room

This barrel-bomb of a speaker delivers a little too much of a good thing.

Archt One speaker

Archt One all-in-one speaker review: Call it the anti-stereo

This versatile speaker can play music from just about any source, but it won’t produce stereo from any of them.

Monster SuperStar BackFloat review: Splish, splash, play your tunes in the bath

This waterproof speaker can not only withstand poolside splashes, it can float in the pool with you.

Razer Leviathan

Razer Leviathan sound bar review: Ba-ba-boom bass

With Dolby Virtual Speaker for faux surround and a subwoofer belting out the bass, movies and gaming take on a life of their own with the Leviathan.

TDK Life on Record Trek Flex speaker review: Weatherized (and it sounds like it)

Everything about this portable Bluetooth speaker is well done--except the sound.

Wren Sound Systems V5US speaker review: A versatile, solid-sounding, but ultimately overpriced wireless speaker

This craft-built speaker supports every major wireless streaming protocol, but it’s not enough.

TDK Trek 360 Bluetooth speaker review: This box radiates nicely rendered tunes

This portable music cube radiates music in all directions, sounds great, and runs for 6 hours on fully charged battery.


Sengled Pulse review: You got your speaker in my lightbulb!

This LED bulb will have everyone at the party asking where the music is coming from.

Onkyo LS-B50

Onkyo LS-B50 sound bar review: An underwhelming home-theater effort

Don’t be fooled by its muscular appearance, this entry-level speaker system is a 98-pound weakling both in terms of features and performance.

Polk Audio MagniFi Voice Optimizing Wireless Soundbar review: Why no HDMI?

Staying within a $400 budget shouldn't force you to sacrifice HDMI connectivity.

yamaha yas 203

Yamaha YAS-203 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer review: Great sound, but light on features

This sound bar has a great price/performance ratio, but it lacks a number of important features.

Sharp HT-SB602 2.1 Channel Slim Sound Bar review: This humongous speaker delivers big value

This sound bar can fill a large room with great-sounding audio.
