Yesterday I was looking for a speaker to use in the shower and watched the video below. Now, as if by magic, the bluetooth speaker god has blessed us with many deals. I hope this helps

The best bluetooth speaker to buy 🔊 (2022) - The Verge: Youtube

Bluetooth speakers have come a long way over the last few years, with newer models offering better sound quality and longer battery life. Whether you’re looking for something small to take everywhere or a speaker for your backyard party, these are the best options from Bose, Sony, JBL, Sonos, and others.

You can get the bluetooth speakers in this video here:

[edit: speakers ranked with 1. being chosen the "best"]
[edit: non John Lewis links (amazon, currys) are just representative and I don't know if they are good price or not]



1. Bose Soundlink Flex: BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

2. UE Boom 3: BEST WATERPROOF BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

3. Sonos Roam - BEST BLUETOOTH SMART SPEAKER

[edit: £149 at John Lewis using GOOGLENESTHUB]

A note from the Verge article regarding Roam SL vs Roam

Sonos recently released a slightly cheaper Roam SL that omits the built-in microphones. But unless you’re adamantly opposed to having mics in your gadgets, I’d steer clear of the Roam SL. It only saves you $20£15 but loses fairly substantial features like automatic Trueplay sound quality tuning, the Sound Swap feature mentioned above, and (obviously) all voice interactions. For $99 or $129, I could absolutely see it. But $159£134 is just too much to ask for the Roam SL.



4. JBL Charge 5 - BLUETOOTH SPEAKER WITH THE BEST BATTERY LIFE

[edit: £144.95 at amazon.co.uk]

If you’re looking for something a little more powerful, JBL’s Charge 5 is beefier than the UE Boom in terms of both dimensions and audio reproduction. I’m not a fan of JBL putting a super-sized logo on its newest speakers; so much for subtlety. But if you don’t mind that aesthetic decision, the Charge 5 ticks off many boxes for functionality.

It’s a stamina champ with up to 20 hours of continuous playback. Speaking of batteries, a unique trick offered by the Charge 5 is its ability to recharge external devices: there’s a USB-A port for topping up your own phone or a friend’s as you listen to tunes.



5. Sony SRS-XB43 - BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER FOR OUTDOOR PARTIES

[edit: £149 at Currys]

Sony’s SRS-XB43 gives you powerful stereo sound with deep, resounding bass. Plus, you get a light show to go along with the music. This speaker is more than capable of handling the soundtrack to an outdoor party — especially if you enable its Extra Bass mode.


6. JBL Clip 4 - BEST SMALL BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

[edit: £49.95 at amazon.co.uk]

The Clip 4 from JBL is actually a bit larger than I would’ve expected when looking at marketing images. But the integrated carabiner makes it effortless to attach to your bag, bike, and who knows what else. I was pleasantly surprised by the sound this compact speaker can produce.

    Shame I don’t need the stupid hub! No way would you get £49 for it. They seem to be giving them away all the time

    After a quick look, I think you should only bank on around £30 to £35 after fees.

    Black Sonos SL is now OOS - only white available

    Crazy article if anyone is keen on hacking the Google Nest device:

    Breaking Secure Boot on Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) to run Ubuntu
    Posted on Wed 15 June 2022

    In this post, we attack the Nest Hub (2nd Gen), an always-connected smart home display from Google, in order to boot a custom OS.

    First, we explore both hardware and software attack surface in search of security vulnerabilities that could permit arbitrary code execution on the device.

    Then, using a Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller, we exploit an USB bug in the bootloader to break the secure boot chain.

    Finally, we build new bootloader and kernel images to boot a custom OS from an external flash drive.

    Surprising pairing both rivals together since Sonos literally handicapped Google smart speakers with patent infringement suits!
    Heat anyways!
    Avatar
    It's the OP that's paired them not JL (can be with other items £100+). I imagine with the intention of selling on the Nest and bringing the Sonos cost down further.

    Believe the Roam is the only portable speaker with WiFi and Bluetooth. Most are only Bluetooth so if you have a phone in your pocket mid bbq and go to the toilet the music could cut out. Sure it’s better than an AUX, but WiFi is the way. Main reason I got one.
    This was the case 8 months ago anyway.

    JBL have had portable WiFi (Google or Alexa) and Bluetooth speakers for about 2 years but yr Sonos will sound probably better.

    Can u buy it and just return the smart speaker back?

    Could u buy it and return it and still keep the nest thing (edited)
    Avatar
    I believe they will deduct the cost of the nest value from your refund to subdue cheeky monkis such as yourself from doing this

    Is the Google nest hub compatible with the Blink doorbell? It’s currently connected to by Echo Dot via Alexa. Thanks.

    Honestly this is a pain in the butt. Its ok if permanently hooked to WiFi but if you actually tak it out and about and use Bluetooth it keeps losing connection and needs reset.

    I have an older Bose soundlink mini which just works.

    when it works its a good speaker, lightweight and has a degree of water resistance too I believe (edited)

    I got the normal (non SL) new from ebay cheaper that this offer, 100% a deal posted here. This deal seems decent but for me Google Hub it’s useless and i will like another normal version to pair.

    The sound it’s “full” at low-medium volume. Basically if you want a smart speaker with excellent quality to listen (not to make a party) that’s the perfect speaker. After 75% de bass start to go down sensible, if you plan to listen outside at maximum volume, it’s not the best choice.

    As a smart speaker it’s decent so if you find normal version at this price without G Hub, worth a try. (edited)
