Best portable Bluetooth speakers money can buy
Raise your hand if you're not satisfied with the output of your phone's built-in loudspeaker. All hands up? Good! That means we're all on the same page.

But while we wait for that to happen, we can always rely on a high-grade wireless Bluetooth speaker.

Sure, they don't come cheap, but they do sound amazingly great for their size, while their batteries last for many hours on a single charge. Best of all, they're all portable, meaning that you can take them with you on your next camping trip, or use them to start a back yard party. Check them out and tell us which ones you find best!

The Sony and the JBL I have actually tried. I give an edge to Sony but JBL achieved great sound for such a small package.

I bought the Bose SoundLink Mini, and am very impressed and it looks a lot more portable than some of those other ones.

Bought the iHome iW2 Airplay speaker from GroupOn this last Weds for $54 shipped. They had a $10 off coupon and this seems like the best deal for bluetooth and airplay speaker around. I also bought the Ematic bluetooth speaker for $19 at Walmart. Why spend $150 when the value of these speakers are much less than their competition.

Well I guess if you want a higher quality speaker. I bought the HMDX Rave at Staples for $19. They're ok considering how much they cost, but they leave a lot to be desired in terms of clarity and bass.

I've been digging the JBL Flip, Charge, and Pulse. I give mid and high clarity to the Bose, but bass and loudness to the JBL line.

This article is crap. It might as well be an ad. At least say which one is best and give a reason.

I use my audioengine a5+ :D For this price you can just buy a medium range set of bookshelf speakers with wireless adapter.
