Una opción es conectar altavoces externos, algo que se puede hacer fácilmente con la tecnología Bluetooth. Comprobamos tres sistemas de altavoces diferentes y evaluamos su calidad de sonido.

Si hacemos recuento, el Teufel Boomster  y elB&O Play A2 quedan empatados en el primer puesto; pero el Bose SoundLink III tampoco queda muy por detrás. 

Hay importantes diferencias - particularmente en lo tocante al concepto - en el rango de precios entre 300 y 400 Euros. Por ese motivo, no podemos declarar un claro ganador, ya que los contendientes tienen diferentes puntos fuertes

El Boomster ofrece calidad de sonido sin compromisos, pero tanto el SoundLink III y el B&O Play A2 puntúan con su mejor movilidad.

Desde el punto de vista de la movilidad, el B&O Play ofrece el mejor paquete en general, ya que es ligero, compacto, aguanta mucho tiempo con su carga y ofrece un asa para transportarlo. El Bose SoundLink III seguramente agradará a los usuarios a los que les guste el sonido potente y quieran un altavoz adecuado para la oficina o para una habitación más grande pero no quieran sacrificar movilidad. Para los usuarios a los que no les importa cargar con unos kilos extra y que quieran el mejor sonido posible, no hay más elección que el Teufel Boomster.
