Bluetooth Speakers That Everyone Needs & Can Afford
OUR TOP PICKS
Bluetooth speakers have always been a great addition to any music lover’s box of tricks, but never have they been more desirable than right now. In these uncertain times, dropping a significant sum on something offering multi-room or Roon-ready smarts, a plethora of inbuilt streaming platforms or daisy-chaining via app support is potentially off-limits. Maybe you just want something cheap and cheerful to provide good-quality musical accompaniment while you’re working on the balcony. Maybe the kids could use something durable for school work, or maybe you just want to listen to podcasts in the kitchen while you’re tweaking your sourdough recipe.
So, aside from something that sounds good for the money, what should you look for when shopping for a budget Bluetooth speaker to get you through lockdown?
Models here at the more affordable end of the market tend to be rugged and super portable, so look out for a durable design and waterproofing, or at least water resistance.
