The Bottom Line An attractive form factor and a good feature set give the JBL Micro Wireless a leg up in the tiny wireless speaker competition. The JBL Flip's decent performance and attractive design make it a worthy Bluetooth speaker contender at $100. With an appealing design, affordable price, and the ability to combine a second Jam Plus to create a left/right stereo pair, the Jam Plus is a worthy budget Bluetooth speaker. The Philips SoundShooter Wireless has a sharp design and is one of the better-sounding sub-$50 tiny Bluetooth speakers -- and it has speakerphone capabilities to boot. 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.
