08/29, 1:15am

Speaker doubles as a tablet stand, but offers weak bass, one control button

Bluetooth speakers aren't only for listening to some music at the park or on a long bus ride, but can also be built with tablets in mind.

Life n Soul have attempted such a configuration with the BM211 Virtual Surround Sound Bluetooth speaker. Would it give consumers flexibility to have a speaker suited for tablets and everyday use, or would they be left with another single-use sound device? Find out in our review.

Review: Fugoo Bluetooth speaker

07/06, 8:25pm

Core unit utilizes 360-degree sound with three different jackets for style

It's rare to find a Bluetooth speaker that can cover a large array of needs. Generally, speakers are wrapped in a desktop-convenient device for a small increase in sound, or made compact enough to be carried around in lieu of headphones. But what about consumers that are looking for a rugged and waterproof speaker that can handle just about anything while pumping out 360-degree sound? Unfortunately, options were severely limited. A new speaker, the Fugoo, hit the market this year that makes good on all of those promises and then some. Check out what we think about it in our review.

Review: Nyne TT Bluetooth speaker

05/19, 9:55pm

Speaker provides long battery life, good sound in the home and outdoors

Bluetooth speakers are important not for only adding a bit of punch to music from mobile devices, but also for providing entertainment in social situations. With the increasing frequency with which people are carrying around music on portable devices, it makes sense that listeners would be on the lookout for an equally versatile speaker. But is there a one-size-fits-all speaker that works for a single listener indoors or a gathering on the porch? Nyne throws its hat into the ring with the TT, a hardback book-sized speaker with a combined 20 watts of power. Would it be adequate for open use? Or is it another speaker only good at short distances?

Nude's Move M, though, is one of those speakers that tries to be authentically portable; we'll put it to the test to see if that's true, and if it holds up as a speaker in general.

Review: Logitech UE Mini Boom Bluetooth speaker

Lots of sound in a compact package

Portable Bluetooth speakers can sometimes feel as if they're a dime a dozen, at this point. Here at MacNN and Electronista, we seem to get word of new ones launching several times a week -- it's reached a stage where it's simply impractical to cover everything. The Mini Boom is a natural exception, since both Logitech and Ultimate Ears are well-known names. In our review, though, we'll see if there's anything that genuinely separates it from the competition, or if it's simply riding on brand recognition.
