Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker

So while I was in college me and friends would hang out in the little coffee shop on campus. We would sit, do homework, watch videos, procrastinate, the normal stuff. Every now and then we would all want to watch a video or listen to the same music but all of our computers had terrible speakers. One day I finally started bringing my portable bluetooth speaker for us to play music on. In our case, the plan totally backfired. We got a lot of stares and angry glares so we started using it less and less, unless no one else was there.

All of that aside, I just wanted to share that story to show that bluetooth speakers are amazing. While people started to dislike us over that speaker, we had a lot of fun and we got to listen to high quality audio together (for once). Portable bluetooth speakers help you take the energy anywhere and share it with friends whether it be picnics, chilling around the house, hanging out on a boat, or whatever. So in this article we are going to take a look at some wonderful portable bluetooth speakers.

Bose SoundLink Color II

Bose- SoundLink Color II (soft black)

I have the previous generation of this speaker, but from what I understand it was mainly the designs that changed. This is a great speaker that surprisingly packs a punch in the low end. This is great to keep around and easy to keep up with around the house.

JBL Charge 3

JBL Charge 3

JBL- Charge 3

This speaker stuck out to me for multiple reasons. I like the portable design involved with it and how JBL made it possible to have up to 3 devices connected at the same time, instead of having to change the source every time someone different wants to play a song. Another reason I love this one is its ability to connect to other devices with JBL Connect, so you can use multiple outputs from the same source.

OontZ Angle 3 Ultra

Oontz- Angle 3 Ultra

The OontZ Angle is all about stereo use. It has 2 cones built in and if you pair 2 OontZ Angle 3 Ultras together they can receive the signal in stereo. What that means is that one will be playing the entire left signal and the other will be playing the entire right signal. This is actually a really good option if you need to have a short term fix for tv speakers in stereo.

Bose- Soundlink Revolve

All of the speakers up until this point have been one directional speakers. This one sets itself apart by being the only 360° speaker on the list. This is great so that you can place the speaker in the center of the group and everyone can hear clearly rather than having to position the speaker in a corner and blasting it out in one direction only.

This is the largest as well as most powerful speaker that is on this list. It even comes with an extendable handle as well as rolling wheels. This is perfect for small parties and get togethers outside where you want the jams coming with no end in sight.
