Music makes everything better, so being able to take it wherever you go is a dream. We’ve made a list of the best Bluetooth speakers of 2021!
Bluetooth speakers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some are designed to sit pride of place on the kitchen counter, others are great for chucking in a rucksack. With so many speakers out there, how are you meant to know which one is right for you? We’ve compiled a list of our favourites, making your decision that little easier!
The Sonos Move is an excellent speaker that delivers high quality audio whilst being robust and stylish. Although portable, it is on the heavier side, making it ideal for taking out the garden or around the house. It features Trueplay technology, meaning it tunes to your surroundings to provide the best sound.
Honourable mention goes out to the new Sonos Roam, a more compact and highly portable addition to the Sonos family.
Tribit Stormbox Micro
For such a small box, this speaker can really blast out some great audio. With the sound of a not so portable speaker, the Tribit Stormbox Micro boasts weighty bass and mature musical sound. Its tiny design makes it ideal for grabbing and taking on adventures, and its IP67 rating means you don’t need to fret about water or dust. You can also connect two speakers together to create “party mode”. And at such an incredibly affordable price, that is highly achievable.
An all round highly rated Bluetooth speaker, the Ultimate Ears Megablast is a strong choice. Not a budget option by any means, but certainly worth its price tag. Supplying detailed audio and hefty yet precise bass, this speaker can also survive being dunked in the pool or caught in the rain. It’s larger than pocket sized, but will fit nicely in your bag, and the sleek cylindrical design comes in an array of colours.
JBL Xtreme 2
A fairly weighty speaker, mirroring a slightly weighty price tag, the JBL Xtreme 2 is a fantastic party speaker. Its boombox design features dual-woofers, which provide powerful, nicely balanced bass. Boasting an impressive 15 hours battery life, paired with an IPX7 rating makes this speaker a brilliant choice for beach days or camping trips. If you have access to a quantity of speakers, JBL Connect+ will enable you to link up to 100 speakers, for a portable nightclub effect. Why not?
Bang and Olufsen Beosound A1 2nd Gen
Last but not least on the list of the best Bluetooth speakers is the Bang and Olufsen Beosound A1 2nd Gen. Beautifully aesthetically pleasing and fully waterproof, it’s a great addition to anyone’s audio family. Although small, this premium speaker packs a punch in terms of sound. It also comes with Alexa voice control and a handy strap, so you can enjoy it hands-free if needed. If good-looking sound is what you’re after, this is the speaker for you.
