Sound Qual­ity

Sound­ing good in ev­ery room

Mac Format - - RATED -

The Philips Spo­tify speaker is the cheap­est on test at just £129.99, but its sound qual­ity isn’t at all bad. Higher fre­quen­cies are clear and de­tailed, and the bass is ad­e­quate for a speaker of this size. Step up to £150 and you can get the Pure Jongo T4X. This chunky speaker pro­vides pow­er­ful 50W out­put with firm bass, although higher fre­quen­cies can be a bit shrill.

The LG H5 strug­gles a bit with vol­ume as well. It’s fine for lis­ten­ing to some mu­sic over din­ner, but the light­weight plas­tic casing strug­gles to con­tain its 40W out­put and the sound starts to dis­tort when you re­ally pump up the vol­ume.

Sam­sung doesn’t spec­ify the out­put of its M5 speaker, but this large tri­an­gu­lar unit pumps out plenty of vol­ume. The bass can be a bit heavy, but Sam­sung’s Mul­ti­Room app in­cludes a graphic equaliser to fine-tune the sound.

The Sonos Play:1 stands out here. Its up­right, cylin­dri­cal de­sign fills the air all around it with a rich, full sound and sur­pris­ingly firm bass for such a com­pact lit­tle speaker.
