The Bottom Line The Jambox is the most stylish portable speaker we've seen, with features and sound quality you won't find in comparable compact designs. The JBL Flip's decent performance and attractive design make it a worthy Bluetooth speaker contender at $100. Although its battery life remains a weak point and its price has gone up a bit, the Flip 2 is an improvement over the original Flip and one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers available. 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. While you'll pay a premium for it, the Jawbone Mini Jambox is the best-sounding and best-designed micro wireless speaker.
