Bluetooth speakers are the latest innovation in wireless sound technology. While this technology is still in its nascent stages, it has already shown a lot of promise. If you own a bluetooth enabled phone, you’ve already seen this technology in action as it allows wireless transfer of data between two phones remotely. The same principles work with bluetooth speakers. In this article, I will talk about some of the best bluetooth speakers available and their salient features.
The first step to picking the best bluetooth speakers is understanding your own needs. If you just want a set of cheap, lightweight speakers you can use with your laptop, then an entry level Samsung or Logitech set would serve you well. But if you want something that you can lug around in your car, on picnics, and which can also serve as a desktop speaker replacement, you will have to shell out a few hundred dollars.
Some of the best bluetooth speakers available in the market today are:
1. Tenqa SP-109
This is an entry level offering from Tenqa that delivers 5 watts of stereo sound. It is small, lightweight, and is great for use with iPods and mobile phones. Just don’t expect it to bring down the house with its volume. Prices start as low as $44.90
2. Altec Lansing inMotion SoundBlade Bluetooth A2DP Speaker
This offering from Altec Lansing delivers clear, high quality audio without compromising on portability. It connects automatically to your mobile phone or bluetooth enabled device.
3. Sony SRS-BTM30
An entry level offering from Sony, the SRS-BTM30 runs on 3 AA batteries and doesn’t compromise on quality. The two speakers work on bluetooth, and weigh in at just 1.6lbs. Prices start as low as $69.
4. Creative D100
This Creative offering weighs in at just 2.2lbs and works on 4 AA batteries that can play non-stop for 25 hours straight. It is compatible with all bluetooth enabled devices. The sound quality is uniformly high. Prices start at $76.

Finally, a speaker that dispels the myth that Bluetooth speakers are only good for casual users. It costs a pretty penny, but turn it on, and you will get crystal clear sound with amazing bass (thanks to SRS TruBass technology) that will blow your socks off.
9. SuperTooth Disco Bluetooth Speaker
It looks like a brick, is almost a footlong, and doesn’t quite have the pedigree of an Altec Lansing behind it. But turn it on, and the SuperTooth Disco can give even a $300 Klipsch speaker a run for its money.
