The largest portable speakers from the often-awesome speaker-crafting company Ultimate Ears are the Megaboom 3 and the Hyperboom. We like and recommend both, but for different reasons and different folks. The Megaboom 3 fits handily in one hand; the Hyperboom is easy enough to lug with one hand via its carry strap. The obvious difference …

We’ve listened to tons of JBL and Ultimate Ears Bluetooth speakers over the past ten years, penned countless reviews, and read just about everything our fellow, lesser audio critics have to say about them as well. They’re both excellent, and you ardent fan-ladies and fan-men of either brand should just hold the fights for a …

In the hundreds of speaker reviews and comparisons we’ve done around here, it’s often easy to choose which to recommend. Comparing the JBL PartyBox 100 vs. Ultimate Ears Hyperboom presents a more difficult choice however; it depends on your outdoor-dance-party priorities, and even then it’s not so clear-cut.

We generally, though not always, enjoy JBL speakers; let’s take on their big boys.

The JBL Boombox 2 was released in spring 2020 as as an update to the original portable outdoor party companion, the JBL Boombox. Both of these are at the larger, and more outdoorsy end of the biggest, loudest portable speakers we’ve reviewed. And they’re expensive. In this article we go through what all reliable critics—not …

Our vast research project looked at the largest and loudest Bluetooth speakers. We focused particularly on those that sound great but are still portable enough to be taken out for beach parties, boating, patio soirées, tailgating parties, etc. The market is saturated, to say the least, which is great: there’s something for any taste. Further …

  We recently tried out the , which are very competitively priced. Given this price, expectations were low — and easily beaten. These are an excellent set of headphones (and calling headset) for what they offer, and the best we’ve heard so far at this price range. A few listeners tried them including one musician …

Not all Bluetooth speakers actually improve in their new additions — though most do. We’re excited to take a peek at the JBL Pulse 4 and see if it’s a worthy follow-up to the Pulse 3. The JBL Pulse 4 was released in September 2019 and Pulse 3 in January of 2017, so we wouldn’t …

The JBL Flip 5 was released August 1, 2019 as an update to the JBL Flip 4 — already one of the better affordable portable Bluetooth speakers out there. While the Flip 4 was not our very top-choice small Bluetooth speaker for travel, it was near the top of the list, and its lower price …
