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. 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. While the SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II may no longer be in a class by itself, it's still near the top of the portable Bluetooth speaker category. The Jawbone Big Jambox doesn't quite measure up to the Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile and it carries a premium price tag, but it's an impressively designed product that offers strong performance and speakerphone capabilities.
