POWERED SPEAKERS WIRELESS JOIN THE REVOLUT ON: O nce upon a time, Bluetooth speakers were thought of merely as tiny portable speakers that didn't sound that great. Things have certainly changed. Not only have Bluetooth speakers improved drastically, but there are some impressive speakers designed for home use. In fact, we don't even like to call these Bluetooth speakers - we think of them as high-quality powered speakers that just happen to have Bluetooth, and a lot more. One-box solutions A small Bluetooth speaker is great for taking on the go or using in a bathroom (awesome for the shower!). But for a living room or master bedroom, go the extra mile for better sound. One of our favorites is the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin. In fact, we tested five different wireless home speakers, and the Zeppelin came out on top thanks to its smooth, balanced sound and elegant form factor. Top-rated wireless powered speaker This is a customer and Crutchfield employee favorite. It has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for lots of wireless streaming options (including Apple AirPlay ). Its unique shape delivers powerful sound with a wide soundstage. It's also among the smoothest Bluetooth speakers we've heard. Available in white and black.
