If you want an easy and quick way of playing music on the go or around your home, then nothing matches the convenience offered by portable Bluetooth speakers. All you have to do is simply charge your speaker, pair it with your phone, and you will be able to enjoy your entire music collection whenever you please.
While they were previously characterized by a tinny and weak sound, improvements in Bluetooth technology in recent years means that they are now able to offer a highly capable audio experience. Even better, battery capacities have improved to the point where you can use your portable speaker for several days at a go without having to recharge it.
However, not all wireless speakers are made equal- some are stylish, some are rugged, but all are worth a place in your technology arsenal. Below, therefore, we take a look at the top 4 portable Bluetooth speakers available today as follows (not including Alexa):
This is, undoubtedly, one of the best kept secrets of the Bluetooth speaker market. The Fugoo comes in various jacket styles (Sport, Tough, or Style), but regardless of which one you opt for, this speaker is just as suited to your coffee table as it is the elements. Despite its small stature, this option offers over 40 hours of battery life when listening at a medium volume as well as a surprisingly good sound performance.
If you are looking for a budget wireless speaker, then the Creative Muvo Mini is the one for you. Nowadays, it is not tough to find a portable Bluetooth speaker full of exquisite features such as a good-performing battery, weather-proofing, and full sound, but for the most part, the choices capable of such feats are unlikely to be cheap. This is where the Creative Muvo Mini steps in.
For about $60, this speaker is capable of all the above-mentioned impressive feats whilst wiping the floor clean of its competition in the process. While it would be enough to recommend the Creative Muvo Mini based on its price alone, it really is an excellent all-round wireless speaker nonetheless.
This wireless speaker is one of the most expensive speakers on the market, but its stunning performance makes it well worth its $600 price tag. Its audio quality is unmatched and features an amazingly rich sound and deep bass. Moreover, this portable speaker comes with every modern feature that one would want in a Bluetooth speaker such as conference calling, USB charging, and NFC connectivity.
A big chunk of its price can be directly attributed to the stunning design by Harman- the Harman Infinity One’s entire enclosure is a matte grille which allows sound to emanate from each side. Despite most people’s aversion to spend insane amounts of money on portable wireless speakers, I can definitely give this one my seal of approval.
While Bose has long been and continues to be a major player in Bluetooth speakers, what has been missing from the company’s product line is an affordable option with the same full-bodied sound but crammed into a smaller form. And with the Bose SoundLink Color which retails at $130, the company has achieved just that. There are various options in this range to choose from, but whichever you settle on, you are guaranteed stellar battery and sound performance.
