The Bottom Line A full $50 cheaper than the Bose SoundDock, the JBL On Stage 400P offers a solid alternative for iPod owners who want clear audio and present bass from a reasonably compact speaker. The JBL Flip's decent performance and attractive design make it a worthy Bluetooth speaker contender at $100. While it's fairly expensive at $200, the Bose SoundLink Mini is one of few standout products in the ultracompact wireless speaker category, featuring a top-notch design and very good sound for its tiny size. The JBL Charge is a nice compromise for those who want a better-sounding portable wireless speaker but don't want to make the jump -- both in terms of size and price -- to something like the Jawbone Big Jambox or Bose SoundLink.
