Websites are awash with deals on great-looking Bluetooth speakers this Black Friday, but with so many models to choose from, it can be tough to know where to start. That is why we humbly suggest that if you want the sonic performance to match the claims on the box, you start right here. You see, if we don't think it sounds good for the money, the product doesn't make it onto this list – no matter how good the deal. On this page, we will only bring to your attention the best Bluetooth speaker deals out there. And by that, we mean deals on products we've already reviewed and recommended.  

The great thing about Bluetooth speakers is that there really is a model and size out there for every budget. You can go the cheap and cheerful route with something small and portable, or spend hundreds on a premium model to take pride of place in your living room or bedroom.

There's no shortage of great deals to choose from either, with a dinky waterproof option from Ultimate Ears right up to a beefier, room-filling sound from JBL's water-bottle sized Flip 5 all listed below – and all boasting excellent sound quality.

Amazon Black Friday deals: quick links

JBL Flip 5 (blue) £120

JBL Flip 5 (blue) £120 £89 at Richer Sounds (save £31)
A quick skim-read our five-star review of this lovely little speaker tells you all you need to know: it sounds great. It's grippy through the bass, fully waterproof, boasts JBL's newest PartyBoost daisy-chaining tech and is sturdy as you like. A top deal. 

B&O Beosound A1 (2nd Gen) £200

B&O Beosound A1 (2nd Gen) £200 £160 at Amazon (save £40)
Bang & Olufsen isn't often involved in sales events. So is this speaker a rare miss? Not at all. The Beosound A1 (2nd Gen) delivers a pleasing yet authoritative performance that you'd be happy listening to all day. Throw in its classy design plus the bonus of Alexa, and you're looking at a top Bluetooth speaker – now with a rare £40 off! 

JBL GO 3 (black) £35

JBL GO 3 (black) £35 £30 at O2 (save £5)
Although it launched at £30, the popularity of JBL's cute little soap-on-a-rope beauty saw it go up to £35 – unless you head to O2, where some colourways have just received a slight discount. Hurrah! 

Tribit Audio Stormbox Micro £50

Tribit Audio Stormbox Micro £50 £31.50 at Amazon (save £18.50)
This adorable yet sonically significant five-star budget Bluetooth speaker has been reduced at Amazon for a limited time. We loved the Stormbox Micro at £50, and we definitely love it now. 

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 (black) £89

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 (black) £89 £74 at Amazon (save £15)
The excellent Wonderboom sequel ups the ante with a 13-hour battery, waterproofing, stereo pairing and an outdoor mode (it's a tree button on the underside of the speaker). The original was already splendid and this is even better.

Sony SRS-XB12 £55

Sony SRS-XB12 £55 £34 at Amazon (save £21) at Amazon
The Sony SRS-XB12 is small but mighty. It boasts a water-, dust-, and mud-proof build, plus an Extra Bass feature for more low-end bass clout. You can even pair two speakers together for room-filling stereo sound. (Hey, at this price, you might as well buy more than one.)

Tribit Stormbox Pro £70

Tribit Stormbox Pro £70 £45 at Amazon (save £25)
A very likeable and well-featured Bluetooth speaker with excellent battery life. We didn't think its sound was amazing for the original price of £100, but this massive price drop makes it much more competitive. 

Anker Soundcore 2 £40

Anker Soundcore 2 £40 £28 at Amazon (save £12)
Anker's SoundCore 2 is very much at the super-affordable end of the market and, thanks to the IPX7 rating, it’ll take some pretty serious abuse. Visually, it’s inoffensive compared to some of its competitors – classy even. And look at that Black Friday discount!

Anker Soundcore Mini £24

Anker Soundcore Mini £24 £18 at Amazon (save £6)
Not a model we've had the pleasure of testing, but with 15 hours of continuous playtime on a single charge, there's a lot of stamina for just £15...
