A mini Bluetooth speaker is a great way to skip out on the heft and rely only on a tiny speaker and your iPhone, though there are plenty of speakers of all sizes that can do that. The ability to take the tiny products anywhere and wirelessly stream your music, and with our overall best choice, the Anker Soundcore Mini, to use the device as a speakerphone as well, makes them useful tools. Whether you want a speaker for your home, travel, the bathroom, or the beach, we've got a great selection of speakers to suit.
