Wireless systems are a technology that seem to get better every year. We've gone from Bluetooth to WiFi, from MP3s to high-resolution audio, in less than a decade. While there are still arenas, like home theater, which haven't quite managed to be fully wireless yet, it's still one of the fastest-growing markets around. If you've ever thought about kitting out your home with multiroom audio, or picking up a Bluetooth speaker to take to the beach with you, this is where you need to be.

We've broken it all down for you, including not only roundups of the best wireless gear available, but also full guides on how to get started. We're always adding more pieces - not that we have a choice, given how fast this is all happening.

Best Wireless Headphones of 2018

Wireless headphones rock. It's been a long time since the days where wired headphones could claim superiority - the sound quality, useability and style of wireless cans have more than caught up...

Best Wireless and Bluetooth Speakers of 2018

Wireless and Bluetooth speakers are the bomb. Gone are the days of crawling around in your ceiling, threading speaker wires. No longer do you have to have DIY experience just to listen to some Metallica in the kitchen.

Best Tabletop Radios of 2018

At a time when audio equipment is geared towards the future, when wireless speakers, phone docks and surround sound are ubiquitous, you might think that the humble tabletop radio is extinct. Not even close.

Best Wireless Routers of 2018

The wireless router is the bridge that turns your internet connection into a fast, reliable network. And unless you want to tangle every computer you own in a nest of wires, you need one. Or two. Or possibly several.

Review: Audioengine HD3

It’s hard not to be enamoured with Audioengine. They make some of the most enjoyable speakers available, from the superlative A5+ powered speakers to the thundering S8 subwoofer. And they've really turned heads with the HD3.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless

The wireless headphones market is getting pretty crowded these days. Ever since Apple dropped the stink bomb about removing the headphone jack from the new iPhone models, manufacturers have been falling over themselves to issue Bluetooth headsets.

Review: Google Home

With the recent explosion of smart speakers, it can be tough to figure out which one’s right for you. So, we’ve decided to test them all - starting with the Google Home.

Review: Modular Mod-1 Wireless

If you’ve never heard the name Modular, or Mod-1, we aren’t surprised. Until recently, we hadn’t either. But Modular has released a pair of wireless headphones that might just dethrone the uber-popular Beats by Dre Solo3 Wireless.

Review: Polk Audio Omni S2

We really, really wanted to like the Polk Audio Omni S2. It kind of hurts writing that. Criticising a bad audio product is easy. It’s plain to see when shortcuts have been taken with production, when materials or build aren’t up to scratch...

Review: PSB M4U 8 Wireless

PSB Speakers is a household name. The head honcho, Paul Barton, really wanted to recreate the same PSB sound that we all know and love, and put that tech into something a little more portable.

Review: Raumfeld One S

You’ve got to have pretty big ambitions to compete with SONOS in the wireless speaker market. That company’s already got most of the action sewn up, and with good reason, but that hasn’t stopped others from trying to get some.

Review: RIVA WAND Festival

Wireless speakers aren’t just the next big thing, they’re the way of the future. Everything is wireless these days. Which is why we’re dedicating so much time to reviewing these gadgets.

Review: Solis SO-7000

We’ve been covering a lot of wireless gadgets lately, and there’s a good reason why. Wireless is the way of the future. Audiophiles and hi-fi fans, feel free to groan, but there’s something liberating about not having to plug everything in.

Review: SONOS PLAY:3

There are very few speakers that ask you to perform an interpretive dance before you can use them. But the SONOS PLAY:3 boldly delves into this new territory...

Review: UE Megaboom

Ultimate Ears say that their Megaboom speaker “can be immersed in liquid up to 1m for up to 30 minutes.” At The Master Switch, we have only one response to this: Challenge accepted.

Review: UE Roll 2

The tech we review is often classy, usually sleek, occasionally drop dead gorgeous. But very rarely does it invoke a sense of glee, or surprise. The UE Roll 2 does both, in spectacular fashion.

Wired vs. Wireless Speakers

Wireless speakers have become the quiet juggernaut of the audio industry. Ever since features like Bluetooth and WiFi became commonplace, manufacturers have been tinkering, slowly freeing us from the chaos of wires and ceiling speakers.
