Up until July of this year, Klipsch's Groove speaker was more often than not found for its original $149.99 price on Amazon, but since then, the price has more or less plummeted. We spotted at $69.99 in mid-July but it has continued to drop a little bit further since. Today it's just $49.99, a whole $100 off what it used to sell for a few months ago.
Although it's a tiny speaker (4.56" H x 5.51" W x 2.65"D), the Groove has a 3" full range driver, two side-firing passive radiators, has an amp output of 10W (maybe take that with a grain of salt?) Read More
Today's Amazon Gold Box deal of the day can help anyone in need of a portable Bluetooth speaker save quite a bit of money. Creative Labs' Airwave speakers are currently reduced down to just $29.99. This is a savings of $70 off the MSRP. That's right, 70%. You don't see discounts like that often (or at least not as often as we'd like).
The Airwave is available in five colors, but only three are going for $29.99: a grey that looks pretty black, a blue that looks kinda purple, and black & white. The pink and green models are not included. Color aside, each option can pair with a device using NFC. Read More
If you're in the market for a portable Bluetooth speaker but aren't feeling the $100+ price tags of some of the top dogs on the market, then Best Buy has a pretty solid deal going that may be of interest. For a limited time, you can grab the Philips Shoqbox for the low price of $68 – that's a full $112 off MSRP and roughly $40 less than what Amazon is selling it for. Not bad.
Here's how the deal works: the Shoqbox is currently on clearance for $80. If you add it to your cart and enter the promo code "LIMITLESS", however, that knocks an additional $12 off the price, bringing it down to $67. Read More
Bluetooth speakers are rapidly becoming a thing that people, you know, buy. And because of that, a lot of companies have started making them. One of those companies has become the unabashed leader of the pack with a little device called the Jambox. But the Jambox is over a year and a half old. Competitors have started springing up, and some of them are actually quite awesome. And we know Bluetooth speakers aren't a "one size fits all" affair, so we're going to give you some of favorites in a variety shapes, sizes, and styles.
The Scoring System
Unlike some numerical scores, these scores are not cumulative - they're meant to compare multiple aspects of similar products on an absolute scale (battery life gets its own measurement, for obvious reasons). Read More
I am sort of becoming the Bluetooth speaker guy here at Android Police, and the more such products I review, the more I find I'm not impressed with a lot of the current market leaders. Most of all, I'm unimpressed with their price-to-performance ratio. So often, Bluetooth speakers overpromise with buzzwords like "amazing clarity," "deep bass," and "rich sound" (how the hell is sound rich?). I get tired of it, especially since most of these promises are meaningless, recycled advertising drivel that belongs on a late-night infomercial. You have to separate reality from marketing-speak. Luckily, today, I haven't had to. Read More
The market for portable Bluetooth speakers is growing more competitive by the day, with various manufacturers spitting out the rectangular prisms in a wider variety of sizes and price points. But generally, this increasingly common accessory comes in one of three form-factor flavors.
First, you have the Jambox-sized devices. Definitely carry-aroundable, but not necessarily something you'd keep in your bag all the time. Then, you have the not-really-actually-portable, but "portable," Bluetooth speakers. Yes, it's wireless, and you could probably fit it in a suitcase, but it's not something you'd travel with, let alone carry around on a regular basis. Stuff like the Jambox Big or Supertooth Disco.
