From sub-$20 picks all the way to ultra premium offerings with higher price tags, there's a Bluetooth speaker for every taste and budget. Check out some of the best picks available that deliver your favorite tunes without wires.
Bose SoundLink Revolve+ Bluetooth Speaker
The Bose SoundLink Revolve+ is a benchmark for Bluetooth speakers. It's stylish, waterproof, and, most importantly, capable of delivering excellent 360-degree audio experience. Available in black or silver, the elegant speaker also has great battery life.
Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Wireless Speaker
The Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 is our favorite waterproof wireless speaker available today. It has excellent design and tactility, top-notch audio quality, and superb battery life. The MEGABOOM 3 also offers a plethora of cool features via a mobile app, including the ability to connect multiple speakers for bigger sound.
JBL Flip 5 Waterproof Portable Speaker
The JBL Flip 5 is our favorite compact wireless speaker available today. It has a simplistic design, a waterproof body, impressive audio quality for its size, and top-notch battery life. This Bluetooth speaker can easily be carried due to its size, and can be attached to a backpack and a bicycle, among other things.
Marshall Stockwell Portable Bluetooth Speaker
The Marshall Stockwell wireless speaker has iconic looks inspired by the company's legendary guitar amps from decades ago, and sound quality to match. We love that the speaker has a multi-directional control knob to control the volume, as well as a handy battery indicator.
Soundcore by Anker Flare Waterproof Mini Wireless Speaker
By offering a combination of top-notch audio quality, great battery life, and waterproof body, the Soundcore Flare Speaker by Anker is our favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker. If you're looking for a great compact option on a tight budget, it's totally worth your attention.
Sony SRS-XB12 Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Sony's XB12 waterproof and dustproof speaker will pleasantly surprise you with a thumping bass delivery, which is simply uncanny for a gadget this tiny. Its IP67 rating allows it to be used in the shower as well as survive toppling over into the pool. Its battery can last for up to 16 hours, and it has NFC connectivity for easy pairing with compatible devices. The ability to pair this small speaker with another unit provides a bigger sound that'll pack a punch, especially with its bass sound.
JBL Clip 3 Portable Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
We really like that, for the first time, the signature metal carabiner of the JBL Clip series of compact speakers is available in colors that match their fabric finish. The latter is available in 11 color options, which is a remarkable feat for a product in this price point. Powered by a single 40-millimeter audio driver, the JBL Clip 3 sound a lot bigger than its palm-sized form factor suggests. The gadget is also an impressive performer when used as a speakerphone.
House of Marley No Bounds XL Wireless Speaker
The coolest thing about the House of Marley No Bounds XL wireless speaker is its waterproof, environmentally friendly build. The materials used in the making of the stylish speaker include sustainably harvested cork, recycled plastics, and reclaimed hemp. The aluminum used in the making of the device is naturally easily recyclable, too. We really like that, in addition to looking cool, the cork used in the making of the speaker allows it to float in water.
V-Moda Remix Bluetooth Speaker
V-Moda's first Bluetooth speaker, just like its awesome wireless headphones, is customizable via 3D-printed modules. They include 3D-printed sides, grilles, and shells, with the available materials ranging from colorful fiber to gold-polished steel.
Its sound quality is also excellent, thanks to a pair of high-quality audio drivers, as well as a bass reflector. Other key features of the V-Moda Remix include 10 hours of battery life and a built-in high-quality headphones amplifier capable of powering audiophile headphones.
Beats Pill+ Bluetooth Speaker
The Beats Pill+ is a compact wireless speaker with good sound quality and a cool design. You can connect two Pill+ units together with Bluetooth for a fuller stereo sound via a sleek-looking mobile app.
The speaker has up to 12 hours of battery life, and you can charge it via a Lightning cable, just like your iPhone and iPad. You can even use the gadget as a backup battery for your mobile devices if necessary.
