A recent viewer asked us what the best Bluetooth speaker is for travel and outdoor activities like hiking and biking. Well, you have asked and we have the answers!
Whether you’re setting up a playlist for your dinner party or riding your bike down a beautiful trail, a portable Bluetooth speaker can make or break the mood. Avoid awkwardness at dinner and the frustration of a silent bike ride by choosing the right Bluetooth speaker for you! Check out the list below for some of our favorites and their best features.
Best Portable Speaker for Biking and Outdoors
If you love playing music in the outdoors or sometimes find yourself answering a phone call in the wilderness, then this is the speaker for you. The Tribit StormBox Micro Bluetooth Speaker is 100 percent waterproof and dustproof making it a great accessory for hikes and the outdoors. For those that like to listen to music while biking down trails, you will love this small but mighty speaker.
The Tribit StormBox comes with a stretchy silicone strap on the back that allows you to attach it to your bike handlebars or backpack for travel. This speaker gives off loud, crisp sound, making it perfect for the outdoors. For a bonus, you can pair and sync to another Tribit StormBox Micro Bluetooth Speaker to play the same music at a louder volume. This speaker has 8 hours of playback time and is charged via USB-C.
Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker for Meetings and Calls
It’s 2022 and most of us are working remotely now, taking calls and meetings in hotel rooms or at your dining room table. No matter where the call takes place, it needs to be clear and the Jabra Speak 510 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is just that. The Jabra Speak allows for clear and crisp conversations during all meetings. Take this speaker anywhere to turn any work or family meetings into conference calls no matter the location. The Jabra Speak is small, slim, and sleek and connects via USB or Bluetooth. With only 2 hours of charging time, this speaker can last for up to 15 hours.
Best Portable Speaker with Alexa and Google Home Built In
The Sonos Roam is unlike most portable Bluetooth speakers as this one connects to the Wifi to sync and work as an Alexa and Google Home. This light and durable speaker is great for any room in the house. The Sonos Roam offers up to 10 hours of continuous playtime and can easily be recharged with a USB-C cable. You can create a multiroom sound system experience by connecting your Sonos Roam to any other Sonos speakers to amplify the sound throughout the house. The Sonos Roam also features Trueplay tuning technology, which adjusts and adapts the sound for your surroundings and content.
Best Portable Speaker for a Low Price
At this price, the ANKER speaker is a must-have purchase. The ANKER Soundcore Bluetooth speaker is compact and lightweight but packs a lot of sound. It’s great for long days out listening to music, as it holds a battery life long enough to play for an entire 24 hours. The Bluetooth radius is up to 66 feet away so feel free to step away from the speaker and have your music continue to play. The ANKER Soundcore is waterproof and perfect for taking the party with you no matter where you go.
Best Overall Portable Bluetooth Speaker
The JBL Flip 4 gives off powerful sound, giving life to any music you play. This speaker offers 12 hours of continuous playtime, plus is durable and waterproof. It can even be submerged in water, but we never recommend that. With its wireless connectivity, two devices can connect to the speaker at once, giving two people the opportunity to play DJ. Not only does the JBL Flip 4 have impeccable sound for music but it also allows you to take crystal-clear calls. If you’re someone who loves the bass, you’ll want to grab a JBL Flip 4 right away. It includes a Bass Radiator so you can hear, feel and see the bass. The JBL Flip 4 comes with JBL connect which allows the speaker to link up with other JBL speakers for an even greater sound.
