Let’s face it. In our increasingly mobile world, wireless and portable is the way of the future. And so this applies to speakers too. Here are some of our top picks for best bluetooth portable speakers under the price of $100.
iHome iDM11 Rechargable Portable Bluetooth Speaker with Speakerphone
The iDM11 is a pretty impressive looking speaker that is simple but stylish. It gives decent sound and even comes with speakerphone functions. Best of all, whatever the industry favorite Jambox can give, iDM11 can too and more. Of course in terms of quality of sound, it is still pretty modest.
iHome iDM8 Bluetooth Speaker Speaker
Want an even more stylish and less boxy speaker? The iHome iDM8 is your answer. Spotting a spherical shape, it sounds pretty similar to the iDM11, but without the speakerphone capabilities. It’s spherical shape also causes the sound to be spread out in a 360-degree fashion rather than focused in one direction.
Monster iClarity HD Precision Micro Bluetooth Speaker 100
Certainly not as stylistically designed as iHome’s bluetooth speakers, but what it lacks in aesthetics, it makes up for in terms of sound quality. At its size, the sound it produces is pretty good.
Logitech Mini Boombox
The Logitech Mini Boombox looks more like an alarm clock than a bluetooth speaker. It produces a warmer tone than that produced by iClarityHD and comes with speakerphone and microphone functionalities. Supposed to offer 10 hours of play-back time.
Of course in the world of affordable speakers, how can we leave out Creative? The D100 is bigger than the other earlier models but probably gives the best value for money. It’s double 3-inch drivers gives pretty impressive bass and runs on 4 AA batteries. However it lacks a remote control.
Logitech Z515 Wireless Speaker
Another player in the market that cannot be ignored is Logitech and their Z515 speaker. It has a very solid and quality feel about it. It includes a wireless USB adapter but fairly average sound quality. It has no speakerphone and no remote control.
Soundfreaq Sound Kick
Finally to end our list, it is the Soundfreaq’s first bluetooth speaker manufactured. It has a pleasant clean look, almost like a battery and a USB charging port. The Sound Kick can produce quite a loud punch in terms of volume but sound quality is still average. It has a built-in rechargable battery giving 7 hours of play time. It is also probably the most expensive speaker of this entire list.
