When it comes to listening to music, headphones go great with your smartphone. What doesn’t go well with the phone are its internal speakers. For sharing music, those tiny internal speakers can bring the best music to its knees.
Here are our picks for the top five bluetooth speakers in no particular order. Our selection criteria has been purely the performance to cost ratio. All these devices are a single unit design with a built in battery.
All these speakers have a switching mode(class D) type amplifier which are designed for maximum possible power efficiency which is a great asset for battery life. High frequency amplification on these devices can be a little shabby.
1 JBL GO (🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟)
This device is on our list for it’s ‘delicious’ colour choices, you would want to own them all.
It’s a mono block speaker with a single 3W driver and it can go really loud, loud enough for big room.
There seems to be an equalization function that automatically lowers the bass upon detection. You have bluetooth, 3.5mm aux input and usb for connectivity.

2 Logitech X300 (🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟)
The sound quality of this elegant speaker truly compliments its looks. Only about half a foot in length, its small size will surprise you by filling your room with crystal clear sound .
The bass is rich with very low distortion at higher volumes.
Vocals on this device are great for watching movies. Sitting at just a little under INR 3000, this device is of great value.

3 Philips BT50B (🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟)
Another device that’s a head turner owing to its dual colour combination and a curvy design to compliment it.
Just like the JBL GO, this device too is a mono-block. 2W audio output might seem less but this speaker gets pretty loud with the volume maxed out.
The device advertises ‘anti-clipping’ technology which basically blocks out the audio frequencies that might case the speaker to distort .
The sound texture sits at a brighter side when compared to the JBL GO. Connectivity option is limited to bluetooth only .
Best Buy Link – Philips BT-50G
It says ‘small size, big sound’ and it does not lie. Stereo configuration with two drivers and two passive radiators makes this device a winner for sound quality.
Passive radiators ensure a good balance of bass for its size. Distortion was hardly noticeable in this device.
The pill form factor is undoubtedly inspired by the beats audio version but for a much more justifiable price tag.
The sound texture is pretty rich with great stereo separation. The connectivity options on this device are truly astounding.
It has bluetooth (obviously), 3.5mm Aux input, USB, memory card slot, NFC and FM tuner- this device can playback any device you’ve owned in the past decade.
Best Buy Link – Amkette iGO 820BK
Philips has always done great justice to music with its playback devices. This device has the sweetest audio quality comparable to products with a much higher price tag. The design is very elegant with a sturdy built quality.
The front grill is fairly perforated giving a good view of the powerful 10W drivers in action. Colour choices on this device are black, grey, blue, white and red.
Front view of the device seems to be inspired by the rear of a race car, especially the red one. Bluetooth and usb are a good combination of connectivity options .
