It looks good, it sounds great, it's water-resistant, and is available in all sorts of sweet color combinations. What am I talking about? The Logitech UE Boom 2, one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers on the market. At least according to Cam, but he doesn't work for AP anymore, so we may not be able to trust him (I'm kidding, we can still trust you Cam, I'm just a little bitter).
The speaker was on sale a little more than a month ago for $167, but there were only two color options to choose from at that price. Today it costs just $150 at Amazon and you can choose from ALL THE COLORS! Read More
There are plenty of portable Bluetooth speakers out there, but how many of them look like a Naquadah generator?
A Sharp 100W Bluetooth speaker is currently marked down at Best Buy to $99.99. Read More
I own many different Bluetooth speakers, but there is just one that I carry daily in my backpack. That's the JBL Flip 3. It is rugged and water-resistant, surprisingly loud and crisp, and has great battery life. I paid $100 for mine a few months back, but now you can pick up a refurbished Flip 3 for a whole lot less. HarmanAudio.com has them on sale for just $69.99 ($85-$99 new on Amazon) in your choice of black, blue, or red.
If you want a little more oomph and rumble, you might also consider a refurbished JBL Xtreme, the Flip 3's muscular older brother, which Harman is selling for $209.99 ($249-$265 on Amazon). Read More
The JBL Charge is a great speaker. When David reviewed the original model, his biggest issue was the price. That makes it a good product to pick up on sale.
Right now Best Buy is offering the JBL Charge 2 speaker at $79.99, which is a significant discount from the usual price of $149.99. And since this is Best Buy, you can place the order online and pick up the product from the nearest store that has it in stock. Read More
The UE Boom 2 is one of the finest Bluetooth speakers you can buy. Great sound, long battery life, distinct styling, and a waterproof exterior make it stand out in the crowded group of competitors in the portable speaker arena.
It's also one of the pricier speakers on the market, normally selling for the premium of price of $200. With the support of a strong brand name and stellar reviews, the Boom 2 almost never dips below this price.
It happens to be on sale today. At least in a couple of color variations. The royal and baby blue 'Brainfreeze Edition' is currently priced at $166.42, and the obnoxiously bright pink and orange 'Tropical Edition' is even lower at $161.16. Read More
The UE Roll may be the most diminutive member of UE's proud Bluetooth speaker family, but it's also the most portable. Weighing in at just 11 oz, the Roll punches above its weight class with surprisingly loud and clear audio for such a low profile device.
In addition to sounding great, the Roll also is waterproof and has a permanently attached marine grade bungee cord that you can use to hang the speaker on things. Things like your backpack, skateboard, dog, or the side of your head (if you buy two, you can put one on each side of your head for true stereo sound). Read More
Bluetooth speakers are cool. You can leave them at your desk, put them around the house, take them out to the garden, and still listen to music and audio while you're working or relaxing. This Braven 770 speaker is even cooler because it sports IPX5 water resistance so you shouldn't be afraid to bring it to the poolside, put it next to the kitchen sink, or listen to it while you shower. It also has 12 hours of battery life and comes in a spiffy black aluminum grade housing with nice control volumes on the side.
Braven is brave enough to say that the included 1400mAh battery can be used as a portable power bank at 1A output, but we all know that you're smart enough not to use that and you've instead grabbed a real external battery for your phone, but I guess you can still say that this is a feature.

Companies want us to perceive their products in a certain way. We hardly agree with them, but sometimes we oblige their marketing taglines. Creative has come to CES with a particularly bold one. The company believes its new iRoar speaker is the most intelligent speaker on the planet. Read More
I can't think of a better gift than a Bluetooth speaker for someone that hasn't shared a list with you, you don't want to spend a ton of money on, but still want to be happy with their gift. A lot of people don't have them, but nearly everyone has a compatible device and it's easy to trump up uses for a speaker even if you had never thought of using one before.
This deal on a Kmashi model that also happens to be waterproof, has a built-in LED flashlight, and can work as a 4,800 mAh power bank in a pinch makes for a perfect gift if you can manage not to keep it for yourself. Read More
The UE MEGABOOM speaker doesn't just go boom. It goes megaboom. That explosion you hear is the sound of a cylindrical Bluetooth speaker pumping music in all directions. It's not on your desk yet, but you can hear it already, and right now you can make it happen for $50 less than usual. Read More
