Elegant design, strong build quality, waterproof tested and overall a performance oriented Bluetooth device with super portability.

Pros

  • Waterproof

Cons

  • Wireless charging dock not included. You have to buy it separately.

After the rise of mobile and smart devices, the need for portable speakers is decreasing. But, for those who need a better sound and extra long time music, portable speakers are still an attractive thing.

Bluetooth speaker

01. Bose SoundLink Revolve+

This Bluetooth speaker is a winner if you consider the design, size and sound quality. A compact design with water resistant capability makes it a good choice. Although we would love to see if this was a waterproof model in this price.

If you consider the price and waterproofing capability then our choice should go to UE Boom 3.

Revolve plus has a carrying handle which is unlikely to any other Bluetooth speaker. With one charge the speaker can perform for around 16 hours which is a plus point.

The wireless range is 9m or 30ft. You can connect two speakers for party mode. Bose has a connect app to switch between Bluetooth devices, a great addition to the functionality. You can connect and use Siri and Google now in this speaker.

Another drawback for price reason, you have to buy the charging cradle or base separately.

Pros:

  • 360 degree sound.
  • Good base and louder sound.

Cons:

  • Expensive

Bose has a good name in making headphones and speakers. This Bose SoundLink Revolve+ is an elegant design with a metallic finish. Easy to carry anywhere and hang it in the wall, you can get a louder sound with an awesome base. The Revolve plus is better than every way than it’s previous models in the series.

02. JBL Clip 3 Portable Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

JBL, everyone heard the name. At least gamers and Music lovers know what that brand stands for. They have a long lineup of good quality sound devices.

JBL Clip 3 is a super quality portable wireless Bluetooth speaker. Its waterproof capacity makes it a perfect choice for travelers and home users alike. You can connect it with your mobile and use it as a speakerphone.

The speaker can go up to 10 hours on a single charge, it includes a good quality 1000mAh battery.

With metallic outlook and carabiner lock included in the top, this looks like an outdoor jungle speaker. You can hook it in your belt, backpack and use it as a speakerphone.

Pros:

  • Good price
  • Good noise cancellation when used a speakerphone.
  • Great sound output.

Cons:

  • Not much unless you got a faulty unit.

Don’t judge the speaker by its size. It has loud crystal clear output. What it lacks is the bass. When we buy a Bluetooth speaker we are worried about the loudness it can provide. In this scenario, the JBL Clip 3 is a winner. It can play music or sound loudly, yet you won’t hear any broken tones.

03. UE Boom 3

If we had to recommend only one Bluetooth speaker to our readers from our list, that will be Ultimate Ears Boom 3. This portable Bluetooth speaker has the ability to deliver 360 degrees sound with a good base and accurate notes.

Most of the speakers in this price range and size are not able to compete with the Boom 3. Comparing to its size the sound is pretty good enough to beat any other Bluetooth speaker in the same range. The well-balanced sound quality will not disturb you a bit even playing for long hours.

UE Boom 3 is powered up by a lithium-ion battery that lasts for 15 hours on a single charge. You can charge the battery with a micro USB charger. The wireless charging dock is separately sold.

Another awesome thing is it’s coating fabrics. It’s specially engineered to withstand rough and tough use. Boom 3 comes with several color variation.
We love the waterproof feature of the speaker. It can be submerged into water up to the 1-meter depth and stay for around 30 mins. The speaker normally floats on water. Otherwise, you are doing an underwater music party this is a very good choice to have on the poolside. You do not want to spoil your mobile in the pool water.

The Boom 3 can be controlled over 100 feet distance, dedicated play, pause and skip button is available on the speaker. With the help of Ultimate Ears app, you can connect up to 150 speakers together, better for a loud noise. The connection works for any generation of the Boom series.

Pros:

  • Waterproof design and it floats in the water.
  • Super portable and strong build quality.
  • Bungee hanger included.

Cons:

  • The POWER UP charging dock is not included. You have to buy this wireless charging dock separately.

Those who are traveling with their Bluetooth speaker and loves to listen to music on the go, this is a superb choice. You can use it almost in any place.

Longer lasting battery, bungee hanger, waterproof quality all made for the tough traveling situation.

04. Anker SoundCore Bluetooth Speaker

If you are looking for a cheap option for your Bluetooth speaker then Anker SoundCore is perfect for you. With superior sound quality and a long 24 hours playtime in a single charge is the specialty of this cheap Bluetooth speaker.

The design is not that much modern or extraordinary, but it has its beat. A simple classic square outlook, with Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect with almost any Bluetooth device. You can connect with Amazon Alexa as a music player to enhance the sound.

Remember, this is a cheap Bluetooth speaker option but providing a great quality sound with the anchor tech. This is not a waterproof device, so be careful when using it near the pool.

It’s not comparable to the top three we have selected, but it’s simple to use and less price makes it a choice of millions.

Pros:

  • Quality sound with loudness
  • Cheap price
  • Easy to operate with any Bluetooth device.
  • 24 hours play time on a single charge.

Cons:

  • Pretty simple design
  • Not waterproof

Bluetooth speakers have their ups and downs, still, they are your best friend if you want to enjoy music and news on the go. Using your phone battery is not always a great choice when you are traveling.

Also, when you want to decorate your house with surround sound but do not want to spoil the surprises with all the cables then interlinked Bluetooth devices are your best choices.
