Bluetooth Speakers: Sony SRSX5 $130 (Reg. $180), UE Mini Boom $70 (Orig. $100)

We have a couple of nice deals on Bluetooth speakers today starting with Amazon offering the Sony SRSX5 in black or red for $129.99 shipped. Matched at Best Buy. It typically retails for $180, today’s deal is within a few dollars of the lowest we’ve seen it go for and the best current offering. Rated 4.5/5 stars.


  • Powerful stereo sound with 20 watts of power
  • Subwoofer with dual passive radiators for rich sound (50 Hz to 20 kHz)
  • Bluetooth audio streaming with AAC and aptX support
  • Convenient One-Touch Listening technology
  • USB power port for charging smartphones and tablets

We’ve also spotted the UE MINI BOOM at Amazon for $69.99 shipped in multiple colors. While it’s not the lowest price that we’ve seen, lower priced deals often aren’t from retails as desirable as Amazon, it is the best current offering. It is rated 4.4/5 stars and features 10 hours of battery life, NFC connectivity, and a 130Hz to 20kHz frequency response.

Looking for more Bluetooth options? We also have a nice deal on a splashproof Omaker speaker as well.
