 Best Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker 2018-2019 Best Seller

1. UE MEGABOOM BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

ue-megaboom-best-bluetooth-speakers-2017-top-rated-portable-wireless-speakers

When it comes to the peripherals, Logitech is a company that is quite popular, as a matter of fact, anything that has left Logitech’s factory in the past couple of years has managed to find great success among the masses, and the case with the UE MEGABOOM is no different. The Bluetooth speaker by Logitech is one of the finest we have seen, and the reasons you should buy are listed below.

Build Quality/Design

The good thing with Logitech is that they are very consistent with build quality, as well as design, they don’t believe in making a lot of unnecessary changes, and in all honesty, that’s how it should be. As for the UE MEGABOOM, it will remind you of some of the older Bluetooth speakers by Logitech but that’s not a bad thing considering how they were such a success. However, there is a slight change that Logitech doesn’t market, at least not in the name, the UE MEGABOOM is a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, that is built like a tank, and will stand the wear and tear easily, and by wear and tear, we don’t necessarily mean that you can throw it around as you please. Needless to say, we have no issues with how it’s designed and built.

Sound

From a speaker that is this big, and costs quite a lot of money, you’d expect it to perform incredibly with the sound, well, the good thing is that it does. The MEGABOOM is bigger than the original BOOM, and for those expecting it to perform better than the predecessor, the good news is that it does, and does a great job at it. Now you may be wondering what the sound is like, and well; the speaker is louder, packs more punch, and has an overall greater fidelity. Tracks out clearer, and crispier, making it one of the best performers in the market.

Battery

The original BOOM from Logitech had a great battery life, and the good thing is that this one doesn’t disappoint either, the battery life hovers between 15-20 hours on consistent playback, and depends on the volume you set this on. Keep in mind that the higher the volume, the shorter the battery life. However, don’t worry, even if you’re booming this at max volume, you’ll be getting great battery life. It charges using a micro-USB and will charge with pretty much any charger, however, it’s best if you use the included AC charger for better results.

Pros

  • Excellent sound quality.
  • Solid build quality.
  • Waterproofing with attractive design.
  • Great battery life.

Cons

  • A bit expensive for some.

2. UE Boom 2 BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

ue-boom-2

The next Bluetooth speaker we have on our list is the UE Boom 2, and yes, it is a revised version of the original Boom, and can be considered a younger brother of the MEGABOOK. Now the good thing is that this is based on the same legacy as the older UE Bluetooth speakers, and the reason why that’s a good thing is because UE speakers are without a doubt some of the best speakers in the wireless industry. Without wasting anymore time, let’s get down to the business.

Build Quality/Quality

First thing first, how is the build quality? Well, for those who have used the original Boom, you would be pleased to know that the build quality remains satisfactory through and through. Yes, the speaker still uses bright colours, and to be honest, the colours do suit the speaker very well. Design, again, is a reminiscence of the original Boom, however, this time, you’re getting full waterproofing, something that is really, really good for a Bluetooth speaker. Overall, there were absolutely no issues with the build quality, or the design.

Sound

For those wondering whether or not it’s an incremental upgrade, then you should know that it’s not, at least when sound is concerned. The Boom 2 is obviously louder than the original version, and offers a lot crispier, and detailed bass than the original. Sound appears more detailed, and all the genres fit well with the Boom 2’s wireless capabilities. Needless to say, it is one of the best Bluetooth speakers I the market.

Battery

For the masses who is always looking for Bluetooth speakers, having the best battery in the speaker is one of the most important factors there are, with that said, the good thing about the battery on the Boom 2, the rated battery is around 15 hours on moderate levels, and while people may prefer to play on a higher volume, the higher you go, the more battery you’ll give away. Needless to say, the battery levels are no less than impressive.

Pros

  • Excellent sound quality.
  • Great looks and build quality.
  • Great battery life.

Cons

  • Pricey for some.

3. JBL Pulse 2 BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

jbl-pulse-2-best-bluetooth-speakers-2017-top-rated-portable-wireless-speakers

The next Bluetooth speaker on our list is the famous JBL Pulse 2, for those who don’t know, this is an upgraded version of the original JBL Pulse, and there are obvious upgrades here and there, for starters the sound quality has improved, and so did the battery life. The good thing is that the amazing pulse lighting is still there, and even though the battery drain is insane, it’s a nice feature to have. With said, let’s move on and take a look at how good the JBL Pulse 2 is.

Build Quality/Design

When it comes to the build quality, one thing is certain that JBL knows how to work with it, the speaker is built like a tank, although hurling it around isn’t something we’d suggest, in addition to that, you should also know that the speaker is quite amazing when it comes to weigh distribution with the weight being evenly distributed through and through. Now the good thing about the JBL Pulse 2 is that the design doesn’t look too much out of the place. Yes, it’s designed like capsule, and this is the style many Bluetooth speakers usually go for, but at the core, it still looks good, and thanks to that Pulse lighting, things only get more interesting.

Sound

Sound quality has always been the pressing matter whenever we are talking about a Bluetooth speaker, we all know and love the sound quality of the original JBL Pulse, and the good news in this current situation is that the sound quality here remains top notch, upon our testing, it was revealed that Pulse 2 backs a lot of bass for the size, and every single note is well detailed, and this is something really, really impressive for a Bluetooth speaker of this size and stature. No complaints with the sound quality.

Battery

Now comes another important factor, and that is the battery life. Well, when compared to the UE Boom series, the battery life may not be as good, but it at rated 10 hours, it’s still a lot better, after all, no one really plays music for 10 hours straight. However, one thing is worth noting is that the battery life works for both the speaker, and the lighting system as well, so turning on the lightshow will take at least 50 percent of the total battery. So, battery life with the light show on would be around 5 hours, still, very respectable for the speaker of this size.

Pros

  • Great sound and bass for the small size.
  • Solid build quality.
  • Lightshow is a rather fun to watch gimmick.
  • Decent enough battery

Cons

  • Speaker doesn’t come with a carrying case.

4.BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER -B&O PLAY A1

bo-play-a1

For those who don’t know, B&O Play is a series by Bang & Olufsen that is popular for creating some of the most famous, and highly regarded audio products. They are known for their headphones, earphones, and even the wireless speakers. As for today, we are going to take a look at the famous B&O Play A1, one of the most famous Bluetooth speakers currently available in the market. Is it any good? Well, let’s find out.

Build Quality/Design

The first thing first, how is the build quality and design of this speaker? Well, for those who don’t know, the B&O Play A1 is one of the smallest speakers on our list, it can be said that it is can be compared to a size of a puck, and while some may think that the size will be holding it down in terms of performance, it’s actually not true. As for the design, it’s a rather tiny speaker but that’s a good thing because it allows for a lot of portability, and the build quality manages to remain as sturdy as possible thanks to the aluminum construction.

Sound

This was something that concerned us when we first laid eyes on the Play A1, the size of this Bluetooth speaker is so small that you’d wonder that this speaker won’t be giving a good performance, however, wait till you actually hear this speaker. The good thing about this speaker is that the sound quality is very, very natural, and clear at the same time. Unlike some other speakers, it doesn’t one note over the other, and everything feels natural. Of course, this isn’t the best speaker for outdoor use, but if you want to keep this in your room, or even your living room, this is certainly a great choice. One thing we noticed is that the speaker starts to heat up as the volume is cranked to maximum, but not unbearably hot.

Battery

Now, another impressive thing about this speaker is of course the battery, we were wondering about having a terrible battery life, but the good thing is that the rated 24-hour battery timing holds really, really well. However, one thing you should keep in mind is that the battery is tested at a medium volume to create an evened out baseline, obviously, the higher you go, the lower the battery gets. That’s the simple science behind pretty much any wireless product.

Pros

  • Small, compact, and sturdy build quality.
  • Amazing natural sound for the small size.
  • Great 24-hour battery life at moderate volume level.

Cons

  • Somewhat pricey.
  • No carrying case.

5. Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II

bose-soundlink-mini-bluetooth-speaker-ii-best-bluetooth-speakers-2017-top-rated-portable-wireless-speakers

We’re halfway through the list, and finally, we are going to take a look at one of the best companies when it comes to audio products, and in case you haven’t guessed it already. We are talking about Bose. The speaker in concern today is the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II, and as you can tell, this is an upgraded version of the original SoundLink Mini, and it happens to be one of the best speakers that are available in the market at the moment. Why? Let’s find out why.

Build Quality/Design

If you’re wondering whether or not you’re getting a good build quality then you should know that yes, you are getting one of the finest built Bluetooth speakers, the SoundLink Mini II uses a unibody aluminum enclosure that looks good, and feels even better in hands. Do keep in mind that it’s not rugged, so if you’re wondering about hurling it around, it’s better not to go that way. Overall, the construction is really good, and the design is simple, kind of something you always expect from Bose but we’re not complaining.

Sound

The original SoundLink was known as one of the best sounding speakers in the market, and in all honesty, not a lot has changed, obviously, you’re getting slightly higher bass, and more clarity, but put those things aside, and you get a speaker that sounds great regardless of the volume level you are putting it on, the speaker will perform like a beast it is, and you won’t be disappointed with the amount of clarity, bass, and details there are.

Battery

Battery is obviously another pressing concern in almost every single wireless speaker, and lucky for you, and us, the battery on this one managed to be really, really well. The original SoundLink mini gave us a respectable enough 7 hours of battery life, and for those wondering about how well the SoundLink II performs, it performed rather wonderfully, and gave us a 10 hours of battery life on a moderate volume, as for people who prefer music on maxed out setting, a small tradeoff won’t be much of a problem.

Pros

  • Satisfying unibody aluminum construction.
  • Great, natural sounding quality.
  • Improved battery life over the original.
  • Comes with a charging cradle.

Cons

  • Doesn’t come with any stereo separation.
  • Speakers can’t be paired.

 

6.BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKER-JBL Charge 3

jbl-charge-3

We have another amazing speaker from JBL on our list, and this time, it’s the famous and beloved JBL Charge 3, for those who don’t know, the Charge series is one of the most renowned series that is available in the market at the moment, having some of the best Bluetooth speakers on the list, and today’s case is no different either. The speaker we have is amazing at what it does, and it does everything pretty well. How well? Let’s find out.

Build Quality/Design

At this point, it’s safe to admit that most high end Bluetooth speakers regardless of the company they are from are usually with the same shape and size, however, we are not saying it’s a bad thing at all. This design language is one of the best we have seen, and gives the speaker an ability to be louder than normal, and that is certainly a good thing. As for the build quality, we have absolutely no issues whatsoever, the speaker looks as good as things get. It’s obviously larger than the previous Charge 2+, but we’re not complaining because it plays music louder than before. As a cherry of top, JBL has also provided full waterproofing to this speaker.

Sound

Consider how the JBL Charge 3 is definitely bigger and larger than the predecessor, you’d wonder that it is louder as well, and you’d be thinking right. The speaker is actually louder than the predecessor, and while it definitely is a good thing, we realized that the loudness doesn’t equate for a better sound quality. Sadly, in our testing, and comparison of both the Charge 3, and Charge 2+, we realized that the Charge 3 is just not as good when it comes to sound quality, and this maybe a deal breaker for some. However, if you don’t care about quality all that much and just want the loudness, then there’s nothing wrong with Charge 3.

Battery

Now the good thing about JBL Charge 3 is the battery life it gives us. Sure, for the size, one would be expecting a decent battery anyway, but the JBL Charge 3 provides 20 hours of battery life on a moderate volume levels, for those willing to louder can do so without breaking a sweat but do keep in mind that you’d have to pay in battery timing for the louder volume output. Overall, the battery is very satisfactory, and the speaker doesn’t take a lot of time to charge itself. It’s a win-win situation in our opinion, and a very good one at that.

Pros

  • Satisfying build quality and design.
  • Fully waterproof.
  • Great battery life.
  • Louder than the predecessor.

Cons

  • Disappointing sound quality as compared to the Charge 2+

7. Bose SoundLink Colour

bose-soundlink-colour-best-bluetooth-speakers-2017-top-rated-portable-wireless-speakers

The next up on our list is the Bose SoundLink Colour, when it comes to top of the line audio products, nothing can better than Bose, and while a lot of people have gone on the board and stated that Bose products are expensive, they are way better when it comes to engineering, as well as all the good things that go into them. So, in one way or another, the price is actually justified. As for the SoundLink Colour, it’s an attractive Bluetooth speaker that is surely a good one. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the speaker itself.

Build Quality/Design

There are a lot of things Bose is consistent about and one of the biggest out of all is the build quality they feature in their products, the SoundLink Colour might be a cheaper version of the SoundLink series, but doesn’t mean that Bose will be compromising in the build quality. The end result presents us with one of the best looking speakers in the market that comes with an attractive, and sturdy design. The speaker is compact, making it easier to carry around, and still look quite attractive thanks to the attractive colour. Sadly, the compromise made was basically no waterproofing in this speaker.

Sound

Looking at a speaker this small, you’d wonder about what type of loudness and quality it would be offering, and the good thing is that there’s plenty. However, do keep in mind that it’s still quite a small and compact speaker, that ultimately means that the sound separation isn’t as good as someone would want. Still, the speaker manages to remain relatively impressive at the size it offers.

Battery

For a speaker this small, the battery life also tends to be smaller, however, the good thing is that the battery life isn’t as small as some would think it is. The marketed battery timing is around 8 hours on moderate volume, and the good thing is that it actually lives up to that. Still, as the general rule suggests, the higher you go with the volume, the lower battery you will be having. The good thing is that the battery is pretty solid for a speaker of this size, and charges comparatively fast too.

Pros

  • Compact, attractive, and solid design.
  • Powerful sound quality and loudness for the small size.
  • Impressive battery life.

Cons

  • No waterproofing.

8. JBL Flip 3

jbl-flip-3

The reason why JBL has a speaker series called Flip is very simple to understand, and even though some may find it ridiculous, it’s actually a really good idea. The Flip series of speakers can basically be used horizontally and vertically, and while it may make no sense to the ordinary user, it is actually really good, especially when you want the sound to travel throughout the entire area. For those who want the sound to stay within a place, using the horizontal positioning is the way to go, however, if you want the sound to travel everywhere, simply place it in a vertical position, and you’re good to go. With that out of the way, let’s see how the speaker fairs.

Build Quality/Design

The build quality of this speaker is just as you would expect, it’s built with great finesse, and JBL has put proper effort in making sure that placing the speaker horizontally or vertically doesn’t create any sort of the issue. It does look quite a lot like the original, and that’s not a bad thing by any measure considering how it was one of the best looking speakers we have tested. Overall, the build quality remains solid, and satisfying at the same time, making this one of the best speakers to hit the market, and yes, the speaker does come with water resistant as well.

Sound

Considering how this is basically a 3rd generation speaker, a lot of people were wondering about wheter or not it will sound as good as the predecessors that were loved for top notch audio quality. Well, the good thing is that it sounds every bit as better as the older models did. Thanks to the bigger speaker that goes inside it, however, you need to keep in mind that the speaker does suffer a bit when you turn the volume to max, but that’s just in a very few tracks. Bass is good, treble is perfect, and vocals come out detailed, and natural. JBL has truly created an amazing speaker.

Battery

This may come as a disappointment to some but when compared to the competition, the battery on the JBL Flip 3 isn’t as good as we had expected. Sure, it’s every bit improved than the original versions, but the 2-hour upgrade doesn’t make a lot of sense when the total battery timing you’re getting is just 10 hours on moderate volume. Still, this part is something that is completely subjective, and a lot of people actually compliment it for the battery life it gives.

Pros

  • Striking design, and a great build quality.
  • Water resistant.
  • Great sound both horizontally and vertically.

Cons

  • 10-hour battery life seems less when compared with the size.

9. AOMAIS Sport II

aomais-sport-ii-best-bluetooth-speakers-2017-top-rated-portable-wireless-speakers

We’re taking a break with high end speakers now and will be looking at something that is a bit more affordable, and still offers enough to keep everyone happy. In comes the AOMAI Sport II, and while a lot people haven’t heard about this relatively cheap Bluetooth/NFC speaker, it has managed to create a decent amount of hype in the industry, and left many of us wondering whether or not it can be a good option for those who are looking at the best Bluetooth speakers in the market. Is the choice worthy of buying? Well, we are going to find that out.

Build Quality/Design

The important and the good thing about this Bluetooth speaker is that while it may have similar dimensions with the other speakers, the design manages to be a little different thanks to the coloured accents you can find on the speaker itself. But that’s not it, perhaps one of the most important thing about this speaker is the fact that the speaker is being marketed as a “Sport” suitable, which means that it should have abilities such as waterproofing, and some other bells and whistles. The good thing is that it does, you’re getting a speaker that is rated IPX7 rating, and on top of being waterproof, the body is designed in such a way that it also happens to be mud, snow, and shock proof. Definitely a great way to earn top marks. Overall, we have had absolutely no problems with how the speaker was constructed, and the design manages to be a fresh air for us. As a bonus, the company has also included an inflatable bed that you can use to put this speaker between a swimming pool without the worry of drowning it. This is something we find very impressive.

Sound

Sound quality happened to be a major concern for us when we first laid eyes on this speaker, the reason behind this is simple, we never heard of this company before, and that raised more concerns. However, we’re happy to report that the speaker managed to pass the test with flying colours. We won’t call it the next big thing from Bose or JBL, but do keep in mind that for the price you’re paying for this speaker, things don’t get better they already are. Our only complaint is that the mids felt like they were being sandwiched between the highs and the lows, and while it did not please us as much, for some other people, it may be the exact combination. Overall, the sound was really, really satisfying, prominent, and natural, even at louder levels.

Battery

On the box, the company advertised the battery to be at 10 hours, however, you do need to keep in mind that the 10-hour battery timing means that the volume must be at a moderate level, that’s actually how the batteries are tested. In our testing, we were never really able to sit through the entire playback time because sitting at one place and listening to music for 10 hours straight is something that can be tiresome. But we can confirm that you can use this speaker for more than 1 day with a single charge, and that is rather impressive. It certainly doesn’t provide you with 24 hours of battery timing, but given the price you’re paying, it’s more than respectable.

Pros

  • Great price to performance ratio.
  • Amazing sound quality with details highs and lows.
  • Shock proof, water proof, mud proof, and snow proof.
  • Includes a free inflatable bed to put the speak in water.

Cons

  • Battery life is somewhat disappointing for the size of the speaker.

10. Anker SoundCore – Best Budget

anker-soundcore

The last speaker on our list may come as a surprise to some people because it’s from Anker, and pretty much everyone knows that Anker is a company known for creating some of the best power banks, still, it didn’t stop us from giving the SoundCore a shot, and we got one for the review. The early impressions were really positive as we found the SoundCore to be the reminiscent of the amazing build quality and price to performance Anker has to offer. With that said, let’s dive in.

Build Quality/Design

Anker did right by making the speaker all black, and while some may think it’s way too simple for its own good, we actually prefer this design. The entire speaker looks like a brick, and the front of the speaker has “Anker” written in white, may look odd at first, but it’s not very upsetting to the eyes. The overall build quality is solid, and despite the build being plastic like almost all the Anker products, it still doesn’t show any sign of wear and tears. However, do keep in mind that soft plastic finish is prone to fingerprints. Overall, the build quality is pretty good despite some minor hiccups here and there like the soft plastic finish and lack of waterproofing, but considering the price, the tradeoff isn’t huge.

Sound

Now this is something that raised some eyebrows for us, considering how this was a first time testing a speaker from Anker, we were a bit curious about how good the sound is, and apparently, it turned out to be really, really good. Believe it or not, the speaker provided one of the best sound qualities we have heard on a Bluetooth speaker, the lows, the mids, and the highs were smooth, and detailed. There was some harshness in the highs especially when the volume was maxed out but apart from that, nothing major really pulled this speaker behind.

Battery

There’s no denying that Anker is well aware of the batteries, after all, they have created some of the best power banks that are available in the market, and to be fairly honest, we didn’t pay much attention to it either. As per Anker’s official statement, the battery will last you about 24 hours at a moderate volume, and while that is certainly an impressive number, it can’t be tested properly. So, in order to test it, we used the speaker at maximum volume, for a couple of hours to make sure it runs dry soon, and it managed to last quite well.

Pros

  • Minimalistic, solid, and attractive build quality.
  • Amazing detailed sound quality.
  • About 24 hour of battery timing on moderate volume.
  • Great price to performance ratio.

Cons

  • Soft textured plastic is fingerprint prone.

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II (Carbon)

Last update was in: December 1, 2017 6:10 pm

The Bose SoundLink Mini II is a mini Bluetooth speaker. It is not sufficiently small that you will bring it with you every day, and you are not going to fit it in a wallet. However, it is about as small as a wireless speaker can get without limiting on sound quality. In addition, if you have not observed one of this small size, big output Speakers before, you will most certainly be impressed by how excellent the Bose SoundLink Mini II appears to be.

Design

The Bose SoundLink Mini II looks much similarity according to its first SoundLink Mini. It is sufficiently small to grasp quickly in one hand, but it is a long effort and strong to fit in a wallet.

It might also be worth investing in a Bose rubber cover for your portable speaker. While the SoundLink Mini II seems wonderfully well made and tough, its metal covering will probably appear damage readily.

Power, Volume Up/Down, and Bluetooth buttons, along with a Multi-function button, sit on the top board. It has a port on the right board homes, a 3.5mm Aux input for wired listening and the micro USB charging connection.

Performance

Bose uses electronic signaling handling to prevent distortions through the SoundLink Mini II’s drivers. On tracks with excessive sub-bass material, like The Knife’s “Silent Yell,” the bass reaction seems to modify depending on the Speaker’s volume level. At mid-level, the bass appears to be rich and quite very efficient for a wireless speaker so small.

For many years, stuffing a room with sound meant one thing: you had paid some huge cash and spent lots of your time setting up music. Then Bose came along and changed the part of the procedure. You still paid some huge cash, especially for the earliest Bose techniques, but suddenly you could get room-filling sound without the enormous footprint that most home theaters required.

Design

Unlike the SoundLink 2, the SoundLink 3 seems to be undoubtedly contemporary. It has vanished a specific volume of personality in the procedure, though, as now it looks identical to many other Bluetooth speakers on the market. The wrap-around metal grill adds a bit of style, but it looks more like faux-metal plastic material, especially from very far.

Though Bluetooth is supposed for making life easy, it is surprising how often it just does not seem to want to act on all. This is not the case with the Bose SoundLink 3. As soon as you hit the power button, the portable speakers begins transmitting its existence to any system that would like to couple with it. In my examining, this was always a quick and pain-free procedure.

Bose claims up to 14 hours of battery power for the SoundLink 3, which is twice the length of its forerunner. In my examining, they seem to be very near here. I allowed the portable speakers to try out all day, turning it off after about 12 hours, and it had not given up.

On tracks with highly effective sub-bass material, like The Knife’s “Silent Yell,” the Pulse 2 provides an excellent feeling of bass reaction for its size. The passive heaters offer a strong feeling of thump, not quite as effective as a subwoofer, obviously, but for a portable speaker, this is some of the better bass reactions, you can get in this price range.

This is why there are no distortions, of course, but it also thins out the mix slightly.

Key Factors to Consider the Best Blue Teeth Speakers

Before deciding on your perfect Bluetooth speaker, you need to consider unique. Some of these will be obvious; some may only become obvious after you have paid your cash and made the wrong choice.

Sound quality

The first factor to consider is, clearly, sound quality, but that is a difficult factor to measure, not least because some producers die you in wild claims and even wilder specifications. What’s more, you may have different aural needs to others: pop, vocals, spoken word, orchestral, the record is endless.

Features and connectivity

Once you have considered sound quality, you move into functions, and there is a wide range of option out there. If you are looking to the party, consider a wireless speaker that lets you couple three gadgets at once such as the UE Boom 2 and JBL Extreme so three of you can pick up the DJ reins.

More essential than this, however, is to buy a wireless speaker that is as flexible as possible in how you can link to it. All wireless speakers has Bluetooth assistance, naturally, but not so many have Spotify or The Apple AirPlay support. These ways of connection all use your house Wi-Fi to stream sound and they can offer greater quality sound and a more efficient link to your cell phone, Tablet or laptop. In addition, do not ignore the effectiveness of a bog-standard 3.5mm audio input, either. If you want bigger sound from a system without Bluetooth, it is the easiest way to hook up.

Battery life

There are three last aspects to consider. The first is battery power. Manufacturers tend to quote an assortment power for “medium” volume, so if you are a person who puts music on the complete belt then knock an extended time from the quoted time. All excellent Bluetooth speakers can offer over eight-hours of life, so this is not the crucial aspect it used to be.

Most Important Features of Bluetooth speakers:

Bluetooth speakers are everywhere these days, and it has, seriously, rather difficult to tell one from the other. Rather than hold one wireless speaker above all as the end-all solution to your wireless music needs, let us instead look at the entire device category and highlight which functions you want for the best encounter.

Speaker Size and Agreement

One of the main trade-offs when it comes to which form-factor you opt to purchase is the sizes and arrangement of the wireless speaker. Almost globally bigger form-factor Bluetooth speakers consist of beefier Speaker arrangements.

Battery Size and Battery Sharing

Bluetooth speakers are portable, and like all your portable electronic devices, they need power. When comparing the sizes of the battery power in your Bluetooth speaker, however, it is not as easy as just looking at the total mAh of the battery power.

Ruggedized Construction

If you are looking for a big wireless speaker to place out on the patio, ruggedized development might not be an excellent priority. If you are looking for a Speaker to take to the seaside, however, a wireless speaker that can survive a sprinkle or two becomes a bigger aspect.

Speakerphones and Auxiliary Access

Although not every wireless speaker has these two main features, they are welcome functions when they do. The more widespread of the two is efficient accessibility via 3.5mm phono port. Bluetooth is obviously the central focus in the style of these Speakers as it liberates us from wires, but there are moments when you still want to use the wireless speaker but do not have a Bluetooth sound resource. In such cases, it is incredibly handy to select from a challenging wired connection and plug your cell phone, portable system, or another sound resource into the Speakers via a plain old 3.5mm cellphone port.

Which Bluetooth speakers is Right for You?

The portable Bluetooth speaker seems, at first glance, like an unnecessary device. It ends up the answer is everywhere, all of the time? Portable Bluetooth speakers have shed the crummy sound, bad battery power, and poor design of past models. The best today can transform any situation the seaside, living room area, kitchen, and, yes, even the shower into an amazingly excellent music encounter.

Bluetooth

For many folks, the perfect wireless method will be Bluetooth. Some may still think of it as the tech behind those annoying headphones that show you from the ears of some snake oil sales representative in the checkout line, but Bluetooth for wireless sound has grown rapidly since its beginning. Bluetooth chips are in-built into nearly every contemporary cell cellphone or computer, and Bluetooth requires no system to plug, significance it will continue to work anywhere on the planet. It is also incredibly user-friendly, demanding minutes to plug.

Wi-Fi

While Bluetooth has made up a lot of ground in wireless sound, Wi-Fi is still excellent in some ways. At its best, Wi-Fi loading can offer a host of services boasting about your wireless speaker, as well as obtaining sound from several sources like NAS storage gadgets or media servers. Wi-Fi also allows for greater quality sound transmitting than Bluetooth, making it suitable for those looking for a quality wireless speaker to playback quality soundtracks.

Airplay

Airplay is Apple’s way of amazingly sending data files, music, and even video over Wi-Fi. Many Wi-Fi Speakers include the technology, the mini Airplay symbol in the menu of iTunes and other music apps causes it to be incredibly easy to push music to your wireless speaker — once you have linked that wireless speaker to the wireless system, that is.
