The Best Waterproof Bluetooth Speakers for 2020
The Ultimate Ears Blast is the best waterproof Bluetooth speaker. It has everything you could ask for in a portable music companion: Stylish looks, rugged construction, superb audio quality, and even Alexa support. It 8217;s also more than a match for your wettest activities.
While we think the Ultimate Ears Blast is going to be the best all-around waterproof Bluetooth speaker for most people, there are plenty of other great styles and flavors on our list that will also fit the bill. We put dozens of models to the test to make this list, checking them for much more than the ability to withstand the occasional splash. These are our favorites.
Why you should buy this: It 8217;s sleek, sexy, life-resistant, and it sounds excellent.
Who it’s for: Everyone.
You may wonder why we 8217;re still recommending a speaker from nearly three years back, and the answer is simple: It 8217;s got all the features you need for outdoor fun, and because it 8217;s been around for a bit, it 8217;s a crazy-good value. The Blast is slick, handsome, and waterproof (duh), boasting 12 hours of battery life and some (very) basic voice support via Alexa, so long as you 8217;re connected to Wi-Fi.
Looking at the Blast, you can 8217;t immediately tell it was designed for outdoor use, which we think is a good design choice. Plus, uh, it sounds pretty fantastic too.
Why you should buy this: It offers big sound in a small, amphibious package.
Who it’s for: Frequent swimmers, kids, and bath lovers.
The compact and shock-proof Wonderboom can take on the elements with fervor, safe from drops up to five feet on hard surfaces. The best part, though? It floats! That makes it the perfect speaker to take in the pool or the lake with kids and ensure it doesn 8217;t disappear in five minutes. While the sound won 8217;t blow you away, it offers impressive punch and clarity for the money. Speaking of which, perhaps the Wonderboom 8217;s best feature is its price point.
Why you should buy this: It 8217;s got big bass, a badass look, and it 8217;s ready for your most rugged excursions.
Who it’s for: Those who really like to rough it, and need some big sound for the ride.
In addition to its powerful sound, the Ready Elite has plenty more to offer: It 8217;s incredibly durable, features four reinforced anchor points for the included hang strap, and comes with a mobile app to adjust the EQ settings. When it comes to style, it 8217;s safe to assume if Batman ever designed a speaker, it would look a lot like this one.
Why you should buy this: It 8217;s unreasonably affordable, it goes anywhere, and charges your phone on the way.
Who it’s for: Anyone with constant 8220;low battery syndrome. 8221;
Why you should buy this: It 8217;s a party in a box. Seriously.
Who it’s for: Those with an open checkbook and a desire to rage.
Disclaimer: The Soundboks 2 isn 8217;t fully waterproof 8212; do not, under any circumstances, put it in the tub, pool, or ocean. It is rain-proof and splash-proof, though, and thanks to its hefty weight, you 8217;d really have to try hard to submerge it in the first place. That being said, if you 8217;re willing to shell out some big bucks, this absurd speaker can power a pool party or bonfire bash by itself without breaking a sweat.
Boasting a ridiculous 40 hours of battery (or more like 10-20 if you 8217;re on full volume), the Soundboks can go all weekend long without needing to plug in. With a case made from Baltic birch wrapped in scratch-proof aluminum, you 8217;d be hard-pressed to do any real damage to the Soundboks short of pushing it out a high window. The kicker: It sounds awesome, thanks to two 10-inch woofers and dynamic bass-boosting technology. Rain or shine, let the good times roll.标签：
