Whatever your budget, we have included a wireless sound system for you here. Those for whom money is not a concern and want audiophile-quality sound will definitely want to consider the Audioengine A5+ Plus, however the Razer Nommo Pro can certainly keep up with them in the acoustics department and come with a subwoofer to give you those satisfying lows. Speaking of bass, if you aren't overly fussy about well-balanced audio and really want something heavy on the low-end frequencies that produce vibration you can feel, you should consider the Logitech G560. Without a doubt, the Logitech Z407 offer, some of the best value for your cash, while the Harman Kardon Soundsticks III are a winner in the looks department if you are going for something eclectic.

Bluetooth, which was not originally designed to transmit high-bandwidth audio, has come a long way since its inception, and with it the quality of the audio signal it's capable of transmitting. However, manufacturers of peripheral devices have been slow to adopt the most current iteration of the technology, Bluetooth 5. That includes speakers, which is why none of our picks come equipped with it.
The previous version, Bluetooth 4.2, is integrated into the Razer Nommo Pro, which is one of the reasons it is ranked so high. Depending on the source device, it is capable of receiving bitrates comparable to CD quality.
Models like the Swans Speakers M200MKII can also receive audio signals via Wi-Fi, which compresses audio less, meaning a larger frequency range is reproduced. The downside to this method is that for it to work there has to be a wireless network present, unlike Bluetooth, which is a direct connection between source and receiver devices.
