Which? has reviewed the latest wireless and Bluetooth speakers, including models by Bose, LG, Sony and Sonos, to help find the best speaker for you. Our in-depth testing means we can recommend the speakers that offer excellent sound quality, are easy to use and tell you which ones will make a mess of your music.

  • Our lab experts put every speaker through the same set of tests, including sound quality, ease of use, connectivity and advanced features – so you'll know exactly what to expect.
  • We give every speaker a Which? test score so you can immediately see at a glance, which are the best and worst, plus how each model compares in regards to features and specifications.
  • Our tests cover a range of brands, prices and speaker types; including wireless, Bluetooth and multi-room speaker systems.

Our Best Buy speakers deliver great audio regardless of what you are listening to. We also find plenty of speakers that fall short in our tests - from big brand names with small sound to stylish models that put form over function.
