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. 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 $200 UE Boom is a versatile and durable wireless Bluetooth speaker that plays loud and is great for on-the-go use. The Jambox is the most stylish portable speaker we've seen, with features and sound quality you won't find in comparable compact designs.
