A solid Bluetooth speaker means you can take your music with you just about anywhere, but not all speakers are designed to be portable or survive outdoors.
Whether you want a speaker for poolside jams or hiking tunes, you want to consider waterproofing, dust protection, a flexible design, and, of course, audio quality.
Bose’s top Bluetooth speaker definitely has more of an inside vibe, but don’t let that soft, clean design fool you — it sounds just as good at a backyard party or at the beach. The 360-degree speaker setup means you can hear that Bose-quality sound from any direction.
The built-in handle makes it easy to grab off a shelf and bring outside. While the Bluetooth capability is reliable, it’s also got a serious range on the Wi-Fi if you’re using it near your home. Bose fans get the added feature of easy connectivity with any other Bose products.
The Clip 4 has a rugged carabiner built directly into the speaker, making it the absolute easiest Bluetooth speaker to take along on an adventure. It’s got a pretty solid 10-hour battery life, is waterproof and dustproof, and is almost small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
This is priced as a budget option, but this micro speaker still packs a punch expected from a JBL product. Plus, the unique color combos available make this speaker a style statement at the gym, the skatepark, or your local hiking trail.
