    Default Best external speaker solution

    For the Nexus 5, or all phones, what are the best external speakers and are they always Bluetooth?

    Can you attach speakers via the headphone jack?

    To get the very best sound you can you'd want to use an OTG cable and send bit-perfect output to an amp or receiver. I do this to send audio to my headphone amp.

    However, yes, you can connect a 3.5mm minijack directly to the headphone output. You'll want to set the volume at ~75-80% on the phone and let the external speaker's amp do the rest.
