How to choose a Bluetooth speaker
As one of the top names in the home audio market, Bose’s speaker offerings range from compact wireless speakers to full-sized units designed for stereos and home theater systems. Most of the Bose speaker deals you’ll find online are for its ever-popular Bluetooth speakers, though, and chances are good that these are what you’re shopping for.
This is premium hardware, and it goes without saying that cheap Bose speakers aren’t exactly common. Thankfully, there are almost always Bose speaker deals to be found year-round, especially during seasonal sales. You can generally expect to pay anywhere from $80 to $300 for the most popular models when they’re on sale, with discounts between $30 and $100 being fairly regular. The size of these discounts naturally scales up with the price of the speakers. You’ll also want to settle on the features you want and which ones you can live without, such as built-in voice controls or streaming capabilities.
Shoppers prone to decision paralysis will be glad to know that Bose isn’t one of those brands that offer a bunch of similar products at identical price points — once you’ve got a budget in mind, it’s pretty easy to narrow down your choices. In the sub-$200 price bracket, you’ll find compact Bluetooth speakers like the Bose SoundLink Micro and SoundLink Mini as well as larger cheap Bose speakers like the SoundLink Color II. These are straightforward (but of course, well-made and nice-sounding) Bluetooth speakers without too many bells and whistles. This is reflected in their prices, as these models typically go for around $100-$170 when not on sale.
Moving above those cheap Bose speakers toward the $200-$250 price range brings us to the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ which, with their 360-degree design similar to that of the Amazon Echo, are great Bluetooth speakers for enjoying room-filling sound. The Bose Home Speaker 300 is another excellent option in this range and also offers 360-degree sound output along with built-in Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for the smart home crowd.
If your budget for Bose speaker deals is around $300-$350, then you’re squarely in top-tier territory with models like the Bose Home Speaker 500 and Bose Portable Smart Speaker. These pack the best drivers for delivering the highest-quality sound as well as smart features like Alexa and built-in streaming capabilities from services like Spotify and Pandora. The Home Speaker 500 is a great choice if you’re looking for a Bose speaker for your home, whereas the Portable Smart Speaker (as its name implies) is great for taking on the go.
Larger speakers, such as bookshelf speakers, soundbars, and floor speakers (the type you’d use for a home stereo or theater system) are a little more technically complicated than those of the Bluetooth variety.
