2 January, 2014
3/5
At $29.99 (direct), it would be ridiculous to have great expectations for the Divoom Bluetune Bean portable Bluetooth speaker. Basically, as long as it turns on, pairs, and emits some form of ...

From a visual design perspective, the Outdoor Technology Turtle Shell 2.0 might be one of my favorite portable Bluetooth speakers I've tested. I'm a sucker for geometric designs, I suppose. ...

Under-$100 speakers, and even more so Bluetooth speakers in this price range, often sound thin and brittle, and tend to distort on deep bass tracks. This is to be expected, and we award high praise ...
