Best Bluetooth speakers

Few Bluetooth speakers excel at packing in as much functionality as the unit can handle while keeping the price down. Other speakers shuck excess functionality in favor of premium build materials instead. You will be greeted with many options to suit your personal tastes whatever path you choose to go down.

Sorting out is the only thing standing in your way. That worths your money and what most definitely is not. We have compiled a list of the best Bluetooth speakers available right now in terms of value, design and, performance to help you in your journey.

In spite of its small size, this option offers surprisingly good sound performance. And get this up to 40 hours of battery life when listening at medium volume. I was able to get nearly 20 hours out of it at a high volume.

3. Harman Infinity One


This stunning Bluetooth speaker lives up to the legacy.

This is Vibrant, rich sound, charges devices, high asking price too. The Harman Infinity One is the most expensive speaker on out list. It’s also one of the best values around. The sound performance is best-in-class with amazingly deep bass and rich sound making up the rest of the signature.

In addition to this speaker houses every modern feature that one could desire in a Bluetooth speaker such as USB charging, Conference calling and NFC connectivity. A big part of the price goes to the stunning design put forward by Harman. The entire enclosure is a matte grille. This allows for sound to pour out of each side. You’re getting your money’s worth here.

Editor’s Note:

In the US only, this speaker is available. On concord, bears such close resemblance in terms of its design and performance to the also-fantastic JBL Xtreme below. That folk around the world, won’t be left out of the experience.

4. Creative Muvo Mini


A capable, weatherproof Bluetooth speaker with subtle style.

  • Weight: .6 pounds
  • Frequency response: N/A
  • Drivers: Two micro drivers and one bass radiator
  • Wireless range: 32 feet
  • Battery life: 10 hours
  • USB charging: No
  • NFC: Yes
  • Aux-in: Yes
  • Bluetooth version: 4.0

It consists of a 10-hour battery, Weatherproof, Can’t charge devices. It isn’t tough these days to find a Bluetooth speaker full of desirable features such as weatherproofing, good-performing battery, and full sound. Most of the time, however, the options capable of all those feats won’t be cheap. That’s where Creative’s Muvo Mini comes into play.

For $59 (£49, AU$69), this speaker handles all these impressive feats. Wiping the floor clean of the competition in the process. It would be enough to recommend it based on its cheap price alone. On concord, it’s actually a really good all-around speaker. So there’s that too.

5. UE Mini Boom


Big sound from a tiny, ruggedized Bluetooth speaker

  • Weight: .6 pounds
  • Frequency response: 130Hz – 20kHz

  • Bluetooth version: N/A
  • Weatherproofing: No

Lively design, Surprisingly deep sound, and foggy highs. Don’t knock the UE Mini Boom for its small size. What it offers out of the box in terms of battery life and sound performance isn’t just impressive. It’s a steal at $99 (£79, AU$99).

You will likely be surprised by the capabilities of this speaker through its companion app just as we were. Packed with a durable form-factor and fun. This speaker is a fantastic value for music lovers.

This speaker has been discontinued sadly. I’m going to keep it here a little while longer, as it’s still pretty easy to find at a good price. At that, I definitely recommend that you pick it up.
