Bose SoundLink Mini Speaker
Your iPad or Android tablet has a built-in speaker, but it is likely subpar. If audio quality is important to you, consider springing for Bose's SoundLink Mini ($200), a Bluetooth speaker that critics applaud for its rich, warm sound and compact size (2 inches high x 7.1 inches wide x 2.3 inches deep). You can accessorize the speaker with a protective soft cover in one of four colors. A few downsides: At 1.5 pounds, it’s a bit hefty and the $200 price tag is steep. Unlike some Bluetooth speakers, Bose SoundLink Mini has no speakerphone feature.
