25 Best Black Friday Headphone and Speaker Deals (2020): Beats, Sonos, Sony

The Bose Home Speaker 500 is a fantastic Alexa-powered speaker, but it’s more spendy than our other favorite smart speakers. That said, it’s a pretty great deal right now, and looks really cool when playing albums thanks to the LED display on the front that shows album art.

JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth Speaker for $70 ($40 off)

Amazon, Walmart, B&H, JBL

This discount extends to nearly every available JBL speaker. We didn’t include the Flip 5 in our best Bluetooth speaker roundup, but it’s a good speaker, and we generally like JBL’s products. If you don’t see the deal, try changing the speaker to another color scheme.

JBL Clip 3 Mini Bluetooth Speaker for $30 ($40 off)

Amazon, Best Buy, JBL, Newegg

We like the Clip 3 for on-the-go listening while cycling or hanging out in nature. It has a built-in carabiner, which makes it super easy to stick in on a pack, tree branch, or chain link fence, and it also comes in cool colors, so you’ll know which one is yours.

JBL Link Portable Google Speaker for $90 ($90 off)

Home Depot, B&H, JBL

The Link Portable is the best Google Assistant-enabled speaker that you can move from room to room, dock, or use as a Bluetooth speaker out of the house. It gets about 8 hours of battery on a charge and can answer queries as well as any Google speaker. It doesn’t have as accurate a microphone array for listening as many of the stationary speakers, so it will occasionally miss a command if you don’t speak up.

LG XBoom 550 Speaker for $250 ($100 off)

Best Buy, Walmart ($262)

Getting bored during quarantine? Check out this giant Bluetooth speaker from LG, which doubles as a Karaoke machine. It even has cool lights in each speaker cone to help inspire you to sing. The smaller version, which also has a surprisingly big bass, is on sale, too.

KEF LSX Wireless Speakers for $800 ($450 off)

Amazon, KEF

KEF’s excellent LSX speakers are a perfect hi-fi solution for apartments and smaller homes. The brand’s iconic drivers place the woofer outside of the tweeter, for a super-wide soundstage, and they’ve got Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on board so you can stream your tunes with ease.
