Cool And Stylish Speakers At Every Budget

Whether you've got under P1,000 or an entire bank account to spare, we've picked some well-designed speakers for you

Gone are the days of ugly dinosaur speakers with wires snaking to (equally ugly) televisions. Thank God (and technology) for wireless, Bluetooth speakers that banish all the cables, and look way much better in the house. Here are six speakers at every price point that tick all the boxes, sound- and design-wise.

We all flock to Miniso for their cute neck pillows and affordable BB creams, but there are dozens of tech gadgets for sale at our favorite discount store. There are cheaper versions of the Miniso speaker (the lowest-priced one costs only P549) but these sleek, metallic cylinders look way better.

Muji, the purveyor of minimalist living, sells a wall-mounted speaker with a surprising twist: the speaker also doubles as an FM radio. The barebones speaker is a design takeoff from Naoto Fukusawa’s iconic Muji CD player from 2001, and is powered by a pullout cable, but can be operated via smart phone. It’s old-school and new-school at the same time—which is very Muji, we think.

Sony gets plus points on design, waterproof features, and its big, booming, bass. This chubby little number has an EXTRA BASS feature, where a passive radiator works with a monoaural speaker to enhance the bass tones. The colorways are fab, and range from sunny yellow, red-orange, to sophisticated sage green.

The JBL Flip 6 packs a lot of sound power for a portable speaker that’s just about the size of a large Red Bull drink. Some of its great features: it has ample bass, is splashproof, has 10 long hours of battery life, and it weighs less than a pound, making it ultra-portable.

If you want speakers with pure, modern, and slightly quirky Danish design, Bang & Olufsen has the Beolit 17, which has a handle that slightly alludes to a bucket, and to its portability. Quirkiness aside, it has up to 24 hours playback, and a speaker design that gives a full-room, all-around sound experience. Plus, it looks fantastic, indoors or out.

Thin is in, and Samsung’s 2018 NW700 Sound+ Soundbar has an ultra-slim design that’s perfect for mounting underneath Samsung’s (equally slim) wall-mounted TVs. This sleek soundbar delivers powerful bass, cohesive soundstage and impressive clarity.
