The JBL Clip 3 is one of our favorite micro bluetooth speakers and is currently on sale at its lowest price ($ 30). Available in black, blue and brown at that price, it is completely waterproof. Clip 4, which features a redesign, will be available in December for $ 70. Read our JBL Clip 3 review.

The JBL Clip 3 is arguably the best travel-friendly wireless speaker, but if you’re looking for stocking-luggage ideas, the UE Wonderboom 2, which offers better sound and battery life in the original, is a great choice. This wireless speaker is available in about a dozen fun colors, it can really float and it feels great for its size. Its list price is $ 100, but it is currently $ 50 for Black Friday. Read our UE Wonderboom 2 first.

This little man travels anywhere and looks amazingly good for his size. It is also waterproof and charged via USB-C. Just be sure to clip the $ 10 coupon to get the full discount.

Note that the price will drop to $ 37.18 starting November 30 as part of a Cyber ​​Monday promotion.

JBL’s popular Flip 5 is on sale for $ 70, or about $ 35 (it lists a slightly higher $ 100). It is a solid little Bluetooth speaker that gets slightly better with each iteration.

Bose’s Soundlink Color II has been out of order a while, but remains one of the better choices in its size class and is far more enticing than $ 80 to $ 130. It is available in several color options at this price, although not in red (which is the color of the review I found).

We’ve seen the first Megaboom 3 at $ 100, but it’s still close to its lowest price. It is a bit expensive at $ 200, but it is a good deal at $ 100.

I reviewed Sony’s cylindrical SRS-XB23 earlier this year, liked its design and thought it looked great. The speaker produces a good amount of bass for its size. However, in terms of sound, it did not really beat the competitors in its price range. At $ 60, this is a much more attractive option.

Note: This deal only applies to black, coral red, light blue, olive green and tup.


Sony’s XB43 is the second largest in its line of portable Bluetooth speakers. It is still relatively compact and has more bass and richer sound than the step-down XB33 and XB23. It is quite expensive at $ 250, but a much better deal at $ 150. It has an integrated light-show feature and is waterproof.


Sony’s XB72 is one of the larger Bluetooth speakers in Sony’s line and it packs some serious punch. Yes, it is portable, but it requires an AC adapter and has some serious beaks that weigh 26 pounds (12 kg). This is what people call party speakers. It can be erected vertically or horizontally and features light-show.
