The Jambox wireless portable speaker from Jawbone allows you to stream audio from any Bluetooth enabled device to its stereo speakers that output up to 85 decibels of sound in a very small package. The speaker gets even better thanks to a free 2.0 software update that adds LiveAudio to the mix – Jawbone-speak for playback of three-dimensional binaural recordings.

Description

The Play:3 wireless home speaker is part of the family of wireless audio products from Sonos. It features 3 speaker drivers and uses your home network (Wi-Fi or ethernet) to steam audio from a Mac or PC using SonosNet - a secure AES-encrypted, peer-to-peer wireless mesh network.

iHome's latest portable speaker, the iW1 has AirPlay support and a rechargeable battery, as well as support for iHome's new apps.

The Bose SoundLink portable Bluetooth speaker system is about the size of a hardcover book, with an integrated cover that folds back to serve as a stand, four midrange drivers, and two intriguing “waffle” woofers placed opposite each other to provide full-range bass performance without vibrating the unit off the table.
