Products from the likes of Sonos and Bose might have been largely responsible for popularized the wireless speaker market, but they also did something else. These pricey speakers pushed other manufacturers to compete the only way they really could: on price. Over time, however, price wasn’t enough and people wanted the same great sound quality they heard on more expensive speakers, so the market shifted yet again. Now, you can get some pretty great sound out of Bluetooth speakers that cost next to nothing.
In this post, you’ll find our picks for the five best Bluetooth speakers currently available on Amazon that cost less than $50 each. Definitely check them out before you spend three, four, or even five times that amount on a big-brand speaker.
