Since you own the place, you can probably listen out loud without someone complaining about your choice of song. Be it Frank Sinatra, BTS or a plain coffee shop background music, your laptop and smartphone will surely love these Bluetooth Speakers that our editors pick for young and old schools.

Price – Ain’t gonna cost your arms and legs. Best value-for-money and hitting the G-spot of your wallet.

 

We asked our millennial engineering writers and friends who either owns several Bluetooth Speakers or even loudspeakers (audio engineers, mechanical, electrical and civil). These young engineers are fanatics and really adore high quality audio speakers. The result of our survey revealed a wide ranging product spectrum from the smallest Bluetooth Speakers that you can find online to the most expensive ones displayed on retail showrooms.

It’s better for you to purchase these speakers online because their prices are way faaaaar better compared to shopping malls and high-street shops. Online products is cheaper by 30%-50%.
