Anker SoundCore

If you want your life to be one never-ending party, you need the Anker SoundCore to keep the party going. This compact portable Bluetooth speaker delivers remarkable sound quality in a compact package, making it extremely versatile. You can toss it in your bag, put it on your desk, or carry it in your hand. The Anker SoundCore is shock-proof, so it should be able to survive even a few drunken adventures.

Thanks to Bluetooth 4.0, connecting the Anker SoundCore to all Bluetooth-enabled devices is super simple. The speaker automatically reconnects to the last device used, allowing you to resume playback without any undue delay. You can also connect the Anker SoundCore to Alexa-enabled devices, which is something that not every Bluetooth speaker in this price range can do.

Ultimate Ears ROLL 2

The Ultimate Ears ROLL 2 is the smallest Bluetooth speaker on this list, but that doesn’t say anything about its sound quality. The ROLL 2 is much louder than what you might expect such a small and portable speaker to be, and it does an excellent job of reproducing all parts of the sound frequency spectrum. Because the speaker emits sound in all directions, you can simply clip it on your bag or strap it to your bike and always hear your music loud and clear.

The ROLL 2 is designed to be controlled using the UE ROLL 2 app. The app gives you control over the speaker’s settings, and it provides access to new features like Block Party music sharing from 3 friends’ mobile devices. You can also use it to update the speaker to enjoy even more features and better sound quality. The ROLL 2 can last up to 9 hours on a charge, and it takes 5.5 hours to charge it to its maximum capacity.

JBL Flip 3

The JBL Flip 3 is a popular splash-proof speaker with a large rechargeable battery that allows for up to 10 hours of playtime. The speaker is available in multiple colors, and it can instantly connect to virtually any Bluetooth-enabled device. What we like the most about this speaker is the option to chain multiple JBL Flip 3 speakers together to amplify the listening experience.

The sound produced by the JBL Flip 3 is warm, enjoyable, and loud. Thanks to built-in noise and echo cancellation technology, the JBL Flip 3 also works great as a speakerphone. Even when there’s a lot going on around you, the speaker always makes it easy for the person on the other side to hear your voice, and vice versa. If you own the JBL Flip 2, beware that the newest version doesn’t come with a hard case—only a nylon cord.

G-Project G-BOOM

The G-BOOM from G-Project is a large suitcase-style Bluetooth speaker that delivers massive sound through a 2.1 speaker configuration with dual rear-firing bass ports. The speaker supports MAXX AUDIO digital sound processing technology for optimum bass, and it has a built-in equalizer with three predefined presets that make it easy to fine-tune your listening experience.

Because the G-BOOM contains a large lithium-ion battery, it can play for up to 6 hours without charging. The outer shell is built to survive years of heavy use, and the protective rubber base allows you to put the speaker on just about any surface without damaging neither the speaker nor the surface. We appreciate the presence of an AUX jack for playing music from non-Bluetooth devices and the integrated handle, which makes this rather heavy and bulky speaker easy to carry.

Creative Omni

If you expect your Bluetooth speaker to spend most of its time inside, you may as well buy one that’s designed for it. For the most part, the Creative Omni is a fairly standard Bluetooth speaker. However, unlike other speakers on this list, it features Wi-Fi connectivity and support for multi-room audio. You can place multiple Creative Omni speakers around your house and control them from any device connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Wi-Fi allows you to stream your music at high sample rates, and it provides greater range than Bluetooth.

Spotify subscribers can play Spotify music directly from Spotify Connect and use the app as a remote to control music from any mobile, tablet, or computer. With Sound Blaster InterConnect app, available for free for Android and iOS devices on Google Play Store and the App Store, it could hardly be easier to set up the Creative Omni and pair two Creative Omni units together wirelessly to enjoy true stereo sound.
