Bluetooth Speakers

Postby MickeyOne » Mon Jan 05, 2015 8:15 am

Can anyone recommend speakers for a desktop that don't need a wire connection? (output jack is shot)

I would like something decent without spending an arm and a leg and I don't know where to start.
Use with ipod/iphone is not necessary but would be a bonus. Bass response is a necessity.

I picked up one of these for the wife. I think I will be using it quite a bit, great bass response and frequency range for what it is.

Bose soundlink color. It was on sale for $99 at Target

Check out the Jawbone Jambox. It's pretty killer. See 'em new on the 'bay for $80-90.

I've got the MiniBoom that was mentioned favorably in the second article linked. Less expensive than the JBL and remarkably loud, clear and bassy for something so small. Great battery life too.

Samson Expedition series
I got one of these during a blowout sale at Sam Ass back in august for $150, they go for about $200 delivered now. Excellent battery life (over 7 hours straight on christmas day playing holiday tunes, and it showed no signs of fading), solid bluetooth connection, and gets nice and loud with very pleasant bass tones. One small downer is a crappy wall-wart-in-line proprietary charge cable, but otherwise I've been thrilled with it. Even thinking about getting another for coffee house PA because they can be chained together.

I really like the little Bose one, too, and I normally hate the sound of their stuff.

I have found the Samson to be a great practice tool with the extra inputs etc. It's probably over kill for the OP's purposes, but just throwing the recommendation out there. Couple dozen similar reviews on the amazoid link.
