Bluetooth speaker

vava-voom-1

In my never-ending quest to find the perfect Bluetooth speaker, I've managed to collect several small, rugged speakers. What I haven't gotten my hands on is a good Bluetooth speaker that is powerful enough to use at a party and stylish enough to not have to hide. While marching forth on my epic audio journey, [...]

Bowers_Wilkins_Zeppelin_1

Back in 2011, I reviewed the then new Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Speaker/Dock. It was—and still is—an incredible speaker that blows away most wireless speakers. After the review, my wife “helped herself” to it, so it now sits on top of her piano facing the kitchen where she can use Apple Airplay to stream [...]

Tibo_Plus 3_12

I know I’ve said this before, but one of my favorite things about reviewing products is being pleasantly surprised because a product performs better than I expected. It also makes it harder to review, because it is much easier to explain why you don’t like something than it is explaining why you do like it. [...]

Creative Roar 2_9

One of my all-time favorite and best sounding portable speakers is the Creative Sound Blaster Roar. Its combination of powerful audio, Bluetooth and unbelievably low price make the Roar a rarity in portable audio. Yet, as good as the Roar is, Creative saw ways to improve upon its already impressive features and created the Sound [...]

Fluance Fi70

Whether the new Fluance Fi70 Bluetooth speaker is the best sounding Bluetooth speaker as Fluance claims remains to be seen. Only a review can determine that, but the Fi70 may qualify as the largest Bluetooth speaker yet. This 81 lb. monster will certainly fill a large room with high quality audio. At the core of [...]

When it comes to multiroom music systems, Sonos is the king. However, being the king makes you a target and Denon has Sonos in its sights . Denon’s ammunition is HEOS (Home Entertainment Operating System). This system ranges from the small HEOS 1 speaker to full-blown wireless home theater systems. The HEOS 1 is the [...]

Pokl Boom Swimmer Duo & Jr-1

Portable Bluetooth speakers are everywhere nowadays. They are small, large, rugged looking or fashion forward. Polk knows the market is loaded with competition at many price points so they designed the Swimmer a few years ago, a portable waterproof Bluetooth speaker. Fast forward a few years and now Polk has moved the Swimmer design forward [...]

braven-705-1

There are so many speakers entering the portable speaker market, that I have bought my previous two based on a slick deal, aka price, and that's about it. That means I've stayed in the sub-50 dollar range of speakers. I was given the opportunity to review a speaker that seemed twice as nice as my [...]

If you've been shopping for a Bluetooth speaker recently, you've found that they come in almost every color you can imagine,  as well as  many shapes and sizes. How does a speaker manufacturer set their speaker apart from the 1000's of other speakers on the market? What if they added a projector to the speaker, [...]

Good music is indispensable, but what good is it if you have poor quality audio devices? Ultimate Ears (UE) which is owned by Logitech released its Boom speaker in 2013 to rave reviews. UE has updated the Boom to the UE Boom 2 and I requested it to review. I found that the Boom 2 [...]

I've done a couple of Bluetooth speaker reviews in my short time with The Gadgeteer and have had the good fortune to review some really nice speakers. Despite that, I keep volunteering to review speakers because I really love listening to music. Reviewing these speakers gives me an excuse to blast some music and get [...]

inateck-marsbox-1

I'm always on the lookout for a great Bluetooth speaker. I have speakers that are waterproof and water-resistant, large and small, poor quality and high quality, but I have yet to own a speaker with an intergrated FM radio....until now. The Inateck MarsBox is a stereo Bluetooth speaker that has a built-in FM radio for [...]

TandV_Hoch_1

When I reviewed the Thonet and Vander Kürbis Bt Bluetooth speaker, I was impressed how such an inexpensive speaker could sound so good. Thonet and Vander are new to the U.S. market and are expanding their product selection with the new Hoch speaker. The Hoch and Kürbis speakers are identical looking except the Hoch is [...]

MPOW-Bluetooth-speaker-1.jpg

MPOW has recently come out with a new Bluetooth 4.0 speaker which I really like.  I have quite a few portable speakers in my collection but this one is now my favorite.  Like all of my speakers you can plug it into your phone or iPod via the headphone jack.  Nothing new or special there.  [...]
