Docking stations are so dated, now you can get great sound from your iPhone or Android device without the wires.

Bluetooth speakers offer a great way to enjoy your music without having to tether it to a set of speakers, meaning you can sit back and relax to your favourite tunes and still have them all in the palm of your hands.

While some Bluetooth speakers offer value for money, others are packed to the rafters with features. Some favour form over functionality while others go for sounds rather than looks. Whatever your tastes, we have the Bluetooth speakers to suit your needs.
