While there are fewer Black Friday wireless Bluetooth speaker prices compared to headset prices, it is still possible to get some nice discounts on leading versions. I’ve put together a listing of exactly what I believe are the best prices — or at least those worth thinking about — for everything from miniature Bluetooth speakers which cost less than $50 to larger “party” versions that typically cost more than $300. I’ll update this article as we see additional bargains.Read more: Best Black Friday headphones deals
The JBL Clip 3 is arguably the most effective travel-friendly wireless speaker, however, in case you’re looking for stocking stuffer ideas, the UE Wonderboom two, which provides enhanced sound and battery life within the first, is a fantastic selection. This wireless speaker is offered in roughly a dozen fun colours, it actually can float and it seems great, also, for its dimensions. Its list price is $100 but it is now $50 for Black Friday.

This little man travels everywhere and sounds incredibly great because of its size. It’s watertight and fees via USB-C, also. Note the cost will fall to $37.18 beginning on Nov. 30 as a member of a Cyber Monday promotion.

JBL’s favorite Flip 5 is currently available for $70 or roughly $35 away (it lists for just a bit more than $100). It’s a strong small Bluetooth speaker which gets marginally better with every iteration.
Bose’s SoundLink Color II has been a while but it is still one of the better choices in its size category plus is much more enticing at $80 than $130. It’s available in many color choices at this cost, although not at the red that is pictured (that is the colour of this inspection sample I obtained ).
We’ve found the Megaboom 3 at $100 earlier, but it is still near its lowest cost. It’s somewhat too pricey at $200, however it is a fantastic bargain at $100.
If little is what you are after, the JBL Go two is certainly that, and it seems somewhat better than you would think because of its small size. $20 is about as low as we have seen for its Go two, which can be offered in several color choices and is totally waterproof. The Go 3, that has a distinct layout, is $40.
I analyzed Sony’s cylindrical SRS-XB23 before this season and enjoyed its layout and thought it seemed pretty great, as it generated a fair quantity of bass because of its size. However, out of an audio perspective, it did not really beat rivals in its budget. At $60, it is a far more tempting choice.
Sony’s XB43 is the next from the largest in its own line of mobile Bluetooth speakers. It’s still comparatively compact and contains more bass and richer sound than the step-down XB33 and XB23. It’s fairly pricey at $250 however a far greater price at $150. It comes with an incorporated light-show attribute and is watertight.
Sony’s XB72 is among the bigger Bluetooth speakers in Sony’s line plus it packs some serious punch. Yes, it is mobile but it requires a AC adapter and contains some significant heft to it, weighing 26 pounds (12 kg). It’s what one requires a celebration speaker. It could be stood up horizontally or vertically and includes a light-show characteristic.
