The DXOMARK Speaker test protocol is designed to score the consumer experience by evaluating relevant audio quality attributes across a range of representative use cases, such as Relaxing, Party, Bedtime or Movies.

Speakers are divided into the following price categories: Essential (<200€), Advanced (200€ to 499€), and the upcoming Premium (above 499€). Segmentation is based on manufacturers’ suggested retail price at the time of release in Europe. For speakers from other regions, local retail prices at release are converted into euros for a consistent comparison.
