Music is a blessing in times like these. Whether you’ve been put onto a friend’s isolation playlist, you’re using your extra free hours to expand your sound horizons, or just indulging in guilty pleasures from the past, music can make a huge difference. As you’re here, you’re probably already interested in upgrading the way you’re playing music, so we’ll let you continue.
One last thing, though. TIDAL is currently offering its Premium and HiFi services for just $1 per month. Just click here to sign up, should you need something to use on your new speaker.
Our line-up of the best wireless speakers around is below.
Transparent Sound Speaker
Resembling the now pretty much defunct cassette tape, this speaker by Transparent Sound is a showcase in simple, stripped-back design.
Guitar amp king Marshall has ventured into the mainstream market, using its years of experience to produce portable speakers like this. The compact Uxbridge includes Amazon’s Alexa voice control — handy if motivation to leave the sofa has disappeared.
SONOS has made a name for itself in the home speaker game through its linkable devices that pride themselves on features like Trueplay, which scans the room the speaker is in to fine-tune its sound to the environment.
JBL Pulse 4
If you’re all about the visuals, then this one is for you. The JBL Pulse uses LED lights to accompany music with responsive light shows. And it’s waterproof.
Bowers & Wilkins Formation Wedge
Should the previous speaker’s flashy features not really appeal to you, you might find solace in the more sophisticated piece from Bowers & Wilkins. Packing a subwoofer and hi-fidelity audio, it has a sophisticated price tag, too.
For those that like to get their money’s worth, this wireless speaker could double up as a table. Just watch that coffee.
Bose SoundLink Color
Ready-made for improving your garden game, this Bluetooth speaker by Bose is compact, portable, and waterproof. A robust option for keeping at your side wherever you might go.
Carhartt WIP x Lexon Mino
On the smallest end of the spectrum, this tiny but easy-to-spot speaker from Carhartt WIP and Lexon is perfect for quick trips to the park in your jacket pocket.
Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15
Not to be mistaken for a cool box, the Beloit 15 by B&O is portable in name but definitely not in nature. The Danish audio brand brings its signature sound prowess, offering omnidirectional sound and a hugely impressive 24-hour playtime.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1
Another B&O option, also offering 24 hours of wireless music. The Beoplay A1 packs True360 sound and boasts splash- and dust-resistant capabilities, making it suitable everyday use.
