Best portable Bluetooth speakers. With summer on its way and more and more people spending their time outdoors. I thought it would be a good time to discuss portable speakers.
For my husband’s birthday, the boys and I got him a portable Bluetooth speaker. He had been wanting one for quite some time now. So I set out to find the perfect speaker.
I wanted to get one that was versatile. One we could take to the pool and small enough for him to carry around where he would like to listen to music.
Here is the list of the five speakers I considered.
UE Megaboom 3 | UE Wonderboom 2 | JBL Flip 5 | Beats Pill | Bose Soundlink Micro
Portable Bluetooth Speakers
- UE Wonderboom 2 – This is the speaker I ultimately chose. The UE Wonderboom 2 has 360 degrees of sound. It is waterproof and floats on top of the water so you can continue listening to music. Keeps a ten-hour charge. Plus has a convenient hang loop to attach it to any bag. It holds a 13-hour charge and comes in multiple colors.
- UE Megaboom 3 – The UE Megaboom 3 is bigger and better than the Wonderboom, but also more expensive. It has 360 degrees of sound and is waterproof and floats on the water. This speaker holds a 20-hour charge for endless fun and comes in multiple colors.
- Beats Pill – The Beats Pill holds a 12-hour charge. The little lights on the top represent how much battery is left. It is also sleek in design for easy pack and storage on the go. It comes in black, white, and red.
- JBL Flip 5 – The JBL Flip 5 holds a 12-hour charge. It is waterproof and able to be submerged up to three feet of water. It comes in eleven different colors.
- Bose Soundlink Micro – The Bose Soundlink Micro holds a 6-hour charge. It is completely waterproof and has a convenient strap to attach the speaker to anything. It comes in black, blue, and orange.
Overall, there are multiple brands and types of portable Bluetooth speakers. It really all depends on your preference. And just like every other electronic, they are constantly improving and making them better.
There is a range of speakers that hold different amounts of charge. Some are waterproof and some are water-resistant. You can get some in different colors and others you can only get black.
We have enjoyed our UE Wonderboom. My husband uses it in his office while working, we take it outside while doing yard work or playing with the boys. We will also take it to the pool so we can listen to music while swimming.
Hopefully, you found something useful and will enjoy a Bluetooth speaker. Best Portable Bluetooth Speakers.

They have definitely been improving the look of speakers. I love how they come in a variety of color options.
It is amazing how sound can be so different from each device. Thank you for doing the research that is always the worst part.
I know! We wanted the 360 degrees of sound so the Wonderboom was perfect for us.
I have two of them at my home. They have very good quality.
Which two do you have? They are really good quality.
Oh I have been wanting to buy bluetooth speakers since long, but could not make up my mind, these surely seem like a good idea.
They are really nice to have!
I’m so intrigued about the unique capabilities of this speaker amongst others which are existing. I’ll look for this one.
Yea I thought it was neat that each one seemed to have a different quality that the others didn’t.
I love how it just blends in with your greenery. I hate when they are bright, obnoxious colors that stick out like a sore thumb with my decor.
Haha we are such a hunter green color-loving family. So, of course we had to get it in that color.
This is great. My husband and I were just talking that a portable mini speaker would be great for throwing in the backpack and taking it with us wherever we go. Thank you for sharing.

They are a great invention. Just to be able to move the music around wherever you would like to listen to it is great!
I’ve been thinking about getting myself a portable bluetooth speaker. Thanks for all the tips here! I think I’ll go for the UE Wonderboom 2.

My daughter has quite a collection of portable bluetooth speakers. There are SO many great ones available and the prices are really reasonable too 🙂
They have definitely improved on quality and cost!
We have the UE Megaboom and love it! It is bigger but we can still pack it well on camping and other trips.
The Megaboom is nice and I love that it has 360 degrees of sounds.
