The Bottom Line The Beats Pill outperforms the Jawbone Jambox and has a couple of intriguing extra features, but the speaker is overpriced at $199. 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 Flip's decent performance and attractive design make it a worthy Bluetooth speaker contender at $100. The $200 UE Boom is a versatile and durable wireless Bluetooth speaker that plays loud and is great for on-the-go use. 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.
