The Ultimate Speaker Guide for Christmas 2022

Nothing is more enjoyable at Christmas time than playing some of your favourite festive tunes and relaxing with a drink, by the fire, or with family. In saying that, not everyone has the luxury of great sound in their home to allow them to do that with ease. Here at DID, we are all too aware of the need to listen to good music, especially around Christmas when Mariah Carey, Christmas FM or your favourite Christmas movie is on repeat in our homes. Below, we have a selection of some of the most popular and feature-packed speakers and soundbars in the market. Each of these will be sure to keep both the volume and the festive spirits high in your home this coming Christmas time. Look no further than the Ultimate Speaker Guide for Christmas 2022!

There is so much to love about this soundbar, and we think it is a steal for only €220. With Bluetooth wireless capability, HDMI ports included for ease of connectivity, and a rich Dolby-supported sound to its name, it is a perfect versatile speaker system to have in your home.

Aside from the unique rectangular shape to minimise noise distortion and improve audio quality, we love the balanced speaker technology and S-Force PRO front sound, all of which deliver crystal clear audio that we are sure you will love. We highly recommend it.

The second option on our list is the Philips Channel soundbar, and with a similar price point to the above Samsung, it is yet another excellent option for any audiophile. What we love about this soundbar is that it is slim in design but offers incredible sound capabilities. The bar itself is only 35mm thin, so it is lightweight and easy to place on top, in front, or beside a television (it has a bracket included too). It has Dolby audio built into it, and if that wasn’t enough, the wireless subwoofer delivers rich bass-boosted sound.

The flip 2 is a lightweight and portable speaker that is feature packed and ready to bring anywhere around the home. This Bluetooth speaker has more than 10 hours of playtime, is waterproof, and has JBL original Pro Sound built into it. What’s not to love?

As the cheapest speaker on the list, if you are looking to buy something cheap and cheerful, this is the speaker for you. It is compact and stylish in its design, and with its IP67 waterproof and dustproof capabilities to boot, it can survive any conditions. The perfect stocking filler!

The built-in Pro Sound technology allows for deep and clear sound, and the 5 hours of playtime with every charge will give you enough Christmas playback to get you dancing your socks off.

The winner of the ‘What Hi-Fi?’ best wireless speaker under £200 award in 2022, the Charge 5 is a true kingpin of the portable speaker industry. It comes with 20 hours of playtime, original JBL Pro Sound, seamless Bluetooth connectivity, and a built-in power bank that will charge various devices whilst it plays all of your favourite tunes. How could it get any better? Oh wait, we know, the price! The Charge 5 is unbelievable value, and we think that it is the perfect portable speaker for blaring all of your festive favourites this year.

One of Sonos’ best offerings, the Roam is packed full of unique features that make it a must-have this festive season. The true play tuning system adapts the sound and balance of the speaker to your surroundings, and with 10+ hours of playtime, you can enjoy tunes wirelessly all day long. Its durability also knows no bounds, with an IP67 rating to prevent water and dust damage, and if you didn’t already love what you see, Sonos Radio (included with the speaker) gives you access to more than 60,000 live radio stations.

The final speaker on the list is the Toshiba portable tower speaker. Aside from its size, what makes this speaker stand out is its audio quality, LED lights, easy Bluetooth connectivity, and the FM-Radio that is built-in for good measure. It is much bigger than some of the other speakers on the list, but it is worth the price tag, especially if you have space.
