“It’s never been eas­ier to bag your­self an af­ford­able way of en­joy­ing mu­sic away from home”

It’s never been eas­ier to bag your­self an af­ford­able way of en­joy­ing mu­sic away from home. And the pro­fu­sion of Blue-in-the-tooth speak­ers means you can be picky about sound qual­ity too. As ever, we’ve done the leg­work for you

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Contents -

It’s no ex­ag­ger­a­tion to say that, if you’re in the mar­ket for a por­ta­ble speaker and have some­where be­tween £100 and £150 to spend, you’re spoiled for choice. All shapes and sizes, all colours and ma­te­ri­als are yours to choose from, and it seems ev­ery man­u­fac­turer worth its Kitemark has a prod­uct vy­ing for your at­ten­tion (and your cash).

We’ve as­sem­bled seven likely can­di­dates for your money here, each very sim­i­lar in terms of what they do, how they do it and for how long, but each quite dif­fer­ent in the way it looks and the way it per­forms.

Maybe you like the the ca­chet of a brand such as Bose, the es­tab­lished hi-fi cre­den­tials of Cam­bridge or the cool trend­set­ting of Li­bra­tone. Per­haps you like the shape of Philips, the feel of Onkyo, the look of Kit­sound or the rugged­ness of JBL. But by the end of this test you’ll know how each of them sounds and, most im­por­tantly of all, which one you’ll be tak­ing home – and ev­ery­where else you go.
