8 Sony SRS-XB32 Bluetooth Speaker Review (2019 version)

Excellent
Overall, the Sony SRS-XB32 delivers great sound along with a great light show. If you already have last year's model (the XB31), then there is really no reason to upgrade as the changes seem to be cosmetic only. There is also no stereo pairing compatibility between the XB32 and XB31, although you can link the two models together to play non-stereo sound ("Wireless Party Change").

Excellent
The Sonos Roam speaker is a strong performer and sounds great as a standalone speaker or when integrated into an existing Sonos system. With water resistance and drop protection, you can simply enjoy your music without worrying about babying the speaker. The built-in Alexa/Google Assistant integration is also a nice touch as you can queue up music without using your phone.

10 GGMM M4 Bluetooth and WiFi Speaker Review
9.3
Great
The GGMM M4 provides high-end sound close to Sonos quality. Music sounds rich and the built-in bass boost function can add a little extra "oomph" when you need it. The speaker can connect wirelessly to your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0, AIrPlay (iPhone) or DLNA (Android).
