Listening to music while on the go has become easier than ever thanks to Bluetooth speakers. While there are Bluetooth speakers with higher output sound than 5 watts, they sacrifice portability to offer that power. The reverse is also true, because you will find speakers which are much more portable, but they’re usually not as powerful. The sweet spot between extreme portability and great sound quality seems to lie around the 5 watt (RMS) mark, and this is why we decided to make a list of some noteworthy mentions in this space.
