Large Size Bluetooth Speakers


Speaker Ranking

A good balance between bigger travel size, small party size and reasonable weight. Pretty easy to fit 2 of them in a backpack with a little room to spare. Good enough to fill a living room and a good minimum size for listening to music outdoors with a group. The best here will have bass extension similar to a 6.5” woofer bookshelf speaker. Bigger size class speakers will generally have deeper bass. All of these are IPX7 or better unless noted. All use USB-C charging unless noted.

To the average non-audiophile, generally speakers in the top 50% of this category will likely sound “good” to you. To the critical listener, generally speakers in the top 20% of this category will likely sound “good” to you. Don’t be afraid to pick one of those if you have budget, feature or aesthetic priorities. There’s a lot of good speakers out there.

For longer runtime, check out a power bank.

#4 Vifa Helsinki: $400

#5 Vifa Oslo: $550

#6 Mifa Wildbox: $100

  • Positives: A really neutral frequency response across the midrange. Best in class bass extension. 6 different lighting modes, or turn off the lights with a long button press. You will need to upgrade it to the latest 2.11 firmware with a Windows PC, as it likely ships with 1.93. Sound quality and bass extension on previous firmwares wasn’t very good. To upgrade firmware, install the PC flashing tool and download firmware. With the speaker off, hold V+ Play V- at the same time to enter flashing mode. To check firmware, turn on the speaker, quickly press the M button 3 times, then quickly press the Play button 3 times (it can take a few tries).
  • Negatives: No app. The slightly boosted upper treble can be slightly fatiguing on-axis with certain songs. Some of the buttons can be confusing, “M” is the Bluetooth button and skip song is long press play, while repeat is double press play. The plastic case isn’t textured or rubberized like other speakers and some may find it feels cheap. If dropped it may break internally and sound strange. I’d recommend only buying it from a place with free returns just in case it was damaged in shipping.
