Best Bluetooth speakers for NVIDIA Shield TV

NVIDIA Shield TV

The NVIDIA Shield TV is a powerful and portable Android TV box that's a breeze to set up and use. Simply connect the Shield to any TV in your home and you've got near endless streaming and gaming options at your fingertips. One great feature that is often overlooked is the Shield TV's ability to pair with Bluetooth speakers, allowing you to bypass your TV's audio entirely. Instead of investing in an expensive home theater system, you can spend a lot less on a pair of high-quality Bluetooth speakers that you can also use with your phone and most other Bluetooth-enabled devices around your home.

My top recommendation would have to be the Edifier R1700BT Bluetooth bookshelf speakers (opens in new tab) ($150) which look and sound great and have been paired to my NVIDIA Shield TV Pro for months with no issues. Given the vast variety of Bluetooth speaker styles available, we've broken out some other great options for you to consider as well.

Pairing Bluetooth speakers to your NVIDIA Shield TV is a great option if you're looking for a quick way to greatly improve your audio experience for streaming Netflix movies and gaming. I recommend the Edifier R1700BT Bookshelf Speakers (opens in new tab) ($150) which offer outstanding quality and value for the price. The NVIDIA Shield TV Pro, with its 500GB of internal storage, is particularly great for use with Plex and when loaded up with a ton of great content it's a breeze to pack up and take your Shield with you wherever you go. With a portable speaker like the Anker SoundCore Boost (opens in new tab) ($80), you can always enjoy great audio on the go!
