Top Recommended Bluetooth Speakers


Speaker Ranking

The suggestions in this section are biased towards value speakers with a neutral frequency response. If you are after specific sound traits like bass boosted or warm speakers, skip this section and read the details in the main rankings.

My perfect minimal speaker setup would be 2 $50 (after clipped coupon and coupon UBOOMLWC on the checkout page) Earfun Uboom L and 2 $160 Tribit Stormbox Blast, enough to cover the small and big use cases in a TWS wide stereo setup. I believe these two are the best speakers for the money for nearly everyone.

The best pocket size speaker with the best sound quality is the $48 Tribit Stormbox Micro 2

The best small/medium size battery powered speaker with the best sound quality with modern features is the $50 (after clipped coupon and coupon UBOOMLWC on the checkout page) Uboom L running firmware 0.4.3 (will need to be changed for the best sound quality and requires PC or virtualization on a Mac). If you don’t want to mess with manually flashing firmware, need TWS low latency, or you require an adjustable EQ and app, get the $70 (after coupon) Soundcore Motion 300 running Oluv’s EQ instead.

The best reasonably priced large size battery powered speaker for deeper bass with great sound quality is the $100 Mifa Wildbox running firmware 2.11 (will need to be changed for the best sound quality and requires PC or virtualization on a Mac). If you don’t want to mess with manually flashing firmware or you require an adjustable EQ and app, get the $104 Soundcore Boom 2 at Soundcore.com with coupon SOUNDCORE2024 or $130 at Amazon running Oluv’s EQ or the $80 (after coupon) Soundcore Motion Boom running Oluv’s EQ instead.

The best boombox size battery powered speaker for deep bass with excellent sound quality, that can get loud for a party but can still be carried by hand is the $160 (after coupon) Tribit Stormbox Blast. Also if you have the ability to wait a bit, the even better Earfun Uboom X should ship in June 2024, it is the new top ranked Boombox.

The best boombox size reasonably priced battery powered speaker that fits into home decor is the $127 Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 6 or $145 Harmon Kardon Onyx Studio 7

The best extreme size big party battery powered speaker with excellent sound quality and very deep bass is the $600 JBL Partybox Stage 320 although if you’re looking for value in a big party speaker, get the $120 Onn Large Party gen 2.

The absolute deepest bass out of an insane size non-battery Bluetooth speaker is the $1301 JBL Partybox Ultimate

The absolute loudest battery powered speaker is the €950 Teufel Rockster (EU only) followed by the $1000 Soundboks gen 4 and $699 Soundboks gen 3
