10 best wireless speakers

Get the party started with these stylish and powerful cord-free gadgets for your home

How do you play your music? A CD in the hi-fi? Nothing wrong with that. But if you’re in the garden or in a room away from the music system, you can play tracks stored on your PC, your mobile or even from streaming services like Spotify. In which case, a wireless speaker is the best way to listen. The below are all battery-powered, apart from the Jongo and Sonos, which need to be plugged in to the mains. Most use Bluetooth, apart from the Sonos which needs wi-fi to grab your music, and a couple have NFC capabilities, too.

The range is pretty wide, so you should be able to find your particular needs. The very best sound quality comes from the Sonos Play:1, but you’ll need a pair to make the most of them. And if you want to take the music outside, the Big Jambox has power, clarity and style. The Damson Vulcan and Cambridge Audio Go offer best value for lower budgets, though if looks are key, the Ted Baker Fastnet is hard to beat.
