#5. Anker Soundcore
The best bluetooth speaker some say, and we would have to agree. This little unit comes with 12W of pure audio power with enhanced bass- from it’s dual neodymium drivers. The advanced digital signal processor ensures pounding bass and zero distortion at any volume. We took it to the lake and it withstood heavy beating from dust, water and bouncing around inside a backpack. We love the grab, go, and listen ease of this speaker. Controls are easy to use and simple. No gimmicks.
4. COMISO Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
The COMISO Waterproof speaker has over 20 hours of playtime per charge. That is a lot of play time if you ask us. It has distinct mids and highs from two precision acoustic drivers and has some of the loudest sounds and base this side of bass-town. We synced to our iphone and jammed out on the car ride over to lunch and felt it matched the car audio-if not better. It has this TWS function, where you can pair any two COMISO speakers, to achieve true playing for left and right channels. IPX5 Rated splashproof, rainproof, dustproof, sandproof, all-the-proof and can be used in any setting. Weight is just under 13 ounces and features a cool design.
#3. JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Who says wireless bluetooth streaming can’t come on a clip? The JBL Clip 2 is a cool way to push out solid sound from a small but powerful unit. We found this to be super easy to set up and has a li-ion battery that supports up to 8 hours of straight playtime. As an added bonus you can take calls from the speaker with a touch of a button - thanks to the noise and echo-free speakerphone that is built in. We love the built-in carabiner, allowing us to tack it on to our cooler, our door handle, our yacht tug line (we wish). Whatever your adventure this speaker may be one of the best. We accidentally dropped it in the ice chest full of ice water and it still worked! Our duuude moment though was wirelessly connecting two of these clip speakers together and using them as our own surround sound system. The durable fabric material and rugged rubber housing allows your speaker to outlast all you may put it through-even your playlist choices.
#2. DOSS Touch Wireless Bluetooth V4.0
Who is the DOSS? DOSS is the Boss. Ok- we’re confused. All we know for sure is the easy-to-use touch controls allow you to amplify any mood and energy of the party. Switch up tracks, volume and pair effortlessly with just a simple touch. Take it anywhere and play anything on it- it will all work out. Features bluetooth 4.0 technology so you can sync it to anything with the word bluetooth on it. The speaker also remembers your last device, allowing you to reconnect effortlessly.

Has a built-in Li-Ion 2200mAh rechargeable battery that guarantees up to 12 hours of playtime at 75% volume. Recharge in 3-4 hours with the included micro USB cable.
#1. OontZ Angle 3 (3rd Gen)
Oontz, Oontz, Oontz…can’t you feel the beat? The OontZ Angle 3 (3rd Gen) has a unique triangular design and downward facing bass radiator that further enhances the sound quality. It is surprisingly loud and plays music with no distortion, even at maximum volume. This is the BEST outdoor speaker for large spaces. It has an incredible 100 foot bluetooth range from any device that is bluetooth capable. It connects easily with the Echo Dot, Echo Dot 3rd Gen, Echo, Echo Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPad, Samsung Galaxy 8, Samsung Galaxy 9, Samsung Note, Smartphone, Cellphone, Laptop, computers, Mac, and all other Bluetooth devices.
