The JBL Flip 4 is firmly in the ‘small speaker’ category, which comes with its own sets of pros of cons. It fits easily into your hand, has phenomenal battery life, and weighs just 1.13 pounds (515 grams), but we can’t expect it to compete with a larger Bluetooth speaker when it comes to filling a large room with sound. Of course, those larger speakers typically command a price nearly double the Flip 4’s competitive price, so there’s no doubt the Flip 4 fits many people’s needs perfectly.
Anker is perhaps best known for its chargers, power banks, and cables, but with the release of their SoundCore Bluetooth speaker range, they’ve taken the portable Bluetooth speaker market by storm.
The Anker SoundCore 2 is a budget Bluetooth speaker that gives you as much bang for your buck as possible. Rivaling much more expensive small Bluetooth speakers in sound quality, battery life, and features, the Anker SoundCore 2 impresses on a number of fronts.
The original JBL Xtreme released in 2015 was a smash hit and became JBL’s most popular portable Bluetooth speaker. It sounded great, it was versatile, and it was super durable.

While splurging for a pair of true wireless in-ear headphones sounds like a great idea, it’s harder to find a good experience when you actually get to testing buds out. Wouldn’t you know it, but it’s difficult for manufacturers to pack excellent audio equipment with a Bluetooth receiver into a small earbud casing.
This is an even harder balance to appreciate for earbuds for athletes. These buds have to be comfortable and functional, all without ballooning in size.
The Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Earbuds are the latest attempt to balance all of these aspects. Though they’re pricey they do have a lot of excellent qualities to justify every dollar. While there’s nothing revolutionary about the earbuds, all of its features have been designed with intent.
The JBL Charge 3 is the follow up to the popular JBL Charge 2 Plus midsize portable Bluetooth speaker.
For a midsize Bluetooth speaker, the JBL Charge 3 is priced very competitively. Similar offerings from Beats, Bose, and UE are all undercut significantly by the Charge 3 manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
The JBL Charge series sits comfortably between the JBL Flip series and the JBL Xtreme series. It represents the best of both of these speakers – it’s smaller, more portable, and cheaper than the Xtreme, but louder and with longer battery life than the Flip.
