If you’re checking out this video you’re probably wondering which wireless speaker is the best. There’s a lot to choose from out there and I’ve picked 7 great speakers to show you and ranked them in several different categories (based on personal hands on experience) to help you make the right choice.
Bose SoundTouch 20
The Bose SoundTouch 20 has a deep, rich sound. I really appreciate it’s screen, the fact that it works with Spotify Connect, comes with a remote and an app and gets software updates periodically. The sound is so good.
The Revo SuperConnect is a gorgeous, retro-styled wood and metal radio with a premium sound. Like the Bose it also works with Spotify Connect. I love the built-in Internet radio, the fact that it comes with a remote (even if it is really chunky), the side volume knob and the large screen.
The Libratone Zipp pumps out some nice sound, as do many of the speakers here on this list, but it’s real standout feature is it’s looks. You can swap out covers for different colors using the zipper along the side. There’s no remote here and just a few buttons up on top but it does come with a strap for portability.
