10 best Bluetooth speakers
We have selected 10 of the best speakers on the market and highlighted some pointers on which features to pay attention to when purchasing.
When choosing a Bluetooth speaker, the first question to ask yourself is how portable you need it to be.
Some speakers are basically just a replacement for hifi, offering top speakers
High quality audio is no hassle, while the others are small enough to fit in the pocket, there are plenty of options between the two.
The smaller and lighter the less audio is done, but the more places you can take it.
Those seeking a truly portable speaker should be aware of whether the speaker will be dropped on the floor or left out in the rain.
Many speakers are now durable and fully waterproof.
What additional features need to be considered.
Many Bluetooth speakers are still just like this: Speakers, Bluetooth connections and power supplies-power supplies or batteries.
Others, however, include wifi audio streaming, which allows you to do other things on your phone when the music continues to play on the speaker.
Some portable models also allow you to charge from other USB devices, while others include microphones so that you can answer the phone through the speaker.
Some portable speakers also offer mono audio optionscalled 360-
Or more traditional stereo listening. Mono and 360-
Degree speakers are ideal for filling space with music, while stereo speakers are more suitable for close range use
For example, when you are watching a movie on your laptop, where you want to keep the stereo image.
We tested the ease of use, functionality, design, build quality and sound quality of each speaker in a variety of situations, including quiet bedroom listening, larger living room, kitchen listening and outdoor.
We also tested the portability and durability of portable models.

It is this versatility that allows us to choose the best overall Bluetooth speaker.
