With a size that is considered fair, the Creative Stage Air speaker still provides a lot of quality sound. It’s not your go-to speaker for a surround system or home theater but it’s a perfectly fine under-monitor speaker that plays out music, videos or games sound and makes it much more enjoyable.
Some of its features include:
- A Bluetooth 4.2 support
- A 3.5mm input
- SBC codec
- Automatic power-off after 15 minutes of inactivity

- Dumb downs sound to mono
- No multi-device pairing
- Not “portable” as you have to plug it in for it to work
If you desire a speaker with Alexa built-in and a more balanced sound profile out-of-the-box, consider the Amazon. If you’d prefer to use Google Assistant and like streaming audio using Chromecast, check out the Google instead.
Best Bluetooth Speakers 3: Aomais Sport II
Of all, Aomais Sport II is considered the most powerful speaker among the cheapest speakers. The one-eyed King in the Kingdom of the blind. With its loud volume option and strong bass reproduction, it tops the chart.
One of the best features of the Sport II is the quarter-inch tripod mount. This is planned to be used on bike handlebars, but you can also attach it to an actual tripod too. A full charge cycle takes 3 hours, supplying 8 hours of battery life. It’s not lightweight at 618g (21.8oz), but it’s durable and compact.
4. Doss SoundBox Plus

What is particular to the Doss SoundBox Plus speaker is an improved voice performance. Although it isn’t as well built as the others, it performs really well with the voice assistant feature. Other features include:
- Portable design
- 10 straight hours of play after a full charge.
- Reproduces clear and on-point vocals as well as lead instruments.
5. Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen)
Best Bluetooth Speakers Under $50
Here is the one for Alexa fans. With over 50,000 skills that users can command for convenience, the Amazon Echo Dot is a really good choice for you.
The latest Amazon Echo Dot features the company’s new AZ1 Neural Edge Chip, resulting in a smart speaker that takes less time than its predecessor to process voice commands.
The new Echo Dot still uses the same 1.6-inch speaker found in its predecessor. However, the larger, spherical design of the 4th generation Echo Dot generates less vibration in the body of the speaker, which helps lessen distortion when listening to higher volumes. And just like with the last model, the new Echo Dot still emphasizes a 3.5mm line out if you’d rather listen to music through another pair of speakers.
6. Sony SRS-XB12
Talking about saving the best for last, the Sony SRS-XB12 is the best. This is in terms of portability and price.
Its outstanding features include:
- Lightweight for carrying
- A detachable carrying strap
- Dust and Water Resistant with a rating of IP67.
- Proportionate mid-range for good vocals and leads.
The downside to this speaker is the way it downmixes stereo content to mono. It also struggles with reproducing low-bass and lacks sound customization. It’s still a solid choice though.
