Top 10 - Best Portable Conference Speakers

Looking for the best conference speakers on the market? Discover our top picks for 2019.

Last updated by Daniel Barnes 12 days ago

Portable conference speakers let you make business calls from just about anywhere, and take seconds to set up- read on to discover our top picks.


As the name suggests, portable conference speakers are designed for situations where you need to quickly get up and running for a conference call, whether in the office or on the go. As well as projecting the voice on the other end of the line, these speakers also include 360-degree microphones, so that everyone can get involved with the conversation. While they won't offer quite as much range as a high-end conference phone, they are an excellent choice for small-to-medium meeting rooms- and even better, they come in at just a fraction of the price.

Since they are such a popular business tool, it's not surprising that there are countless conference speakers available. Some are made by companies better known for their headsets, like Jabra and Sennheiser, while others come from dedicated conferencing brands such as Polycom. How are you to choose the right one? That's where the liGo experts are here to help. We have personally tested every model on the market in order to come up with the following list of ten of the very best. With stellar sound quality and advanced microphones, each of the options below is a great pick.

When choosing a portable conference speaker, you'll want to think about which devices you will be using it with. For instance, Bluetooth will let you pair your speaker up with your smartphone or laptop, but some PCs will need a USB adapter to pair up. Models with a physical USB cord are even quicker to set up, since they are usually just plug and play- but again, make sure you choose the right type of connection for your device. If you'd like some more information about any of the the models on our list, or a personalised recommendation, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us directly!
