Which Is The Best Bluetooth Speaker?
5. JBL Charge 3
Bluetooth speakers are one of the best ways to consume media these days, and thanks to their portability and battery life you can even take most of these with your trips. They also come in many different sizes, and one of the best budget Bluetooth speakers come from JBL, Charge 3. Even though we have seen an update of this product, this one is everything that you may want from a Bluetooth speaker, including price, features, sound durability and many more.
The JBL Charge 3 rocks the trademark looks of the series with the cylindrical shape, that is wrapped with a mesh grille and has shock absorbant rubber on the sides. This is a great device, since it is mid-sized, and measures about 9.1×3.5×3.5-inches in total and weighed just 1.8-pounds in my scale. While it is pretty mid-sized it can pump out plenty of music thanks to its great battery life of 20 hours before giving up.
It is also very important to mention that the JBL Charge 3 is very durable and is also waterproofed and now comes with an adequate IPX7 rating, so it can also be submerged underwater for up to 30 meters, to a depth of 1 meter. In addition to this on the device, you will find the playback controls the Bluetooth button, the power button, and the JBL connect button. This superb speaker is packed with dual external passive radiators that pump out some nice visual effects for bass-heavy tracks, and they are very well protected, even if the looks would suggest otherwise.
In terms of performance and power, the JBL Charge 3 is great, and during testing, I noticed that it could comfortably fill a room with rich and punchy sounds, and the soundscape was trademark JBL. It was great with a wide variety of genres, however, it was perfect for loud and bass-rich music, like hip-hop, pop, and dance music, coming in with solid bass and clear highs that were a little lacking. Despite being pretty affordable the JBL Charge 3 delivers more than you would expect.
4. Ultimate Ears Boom 3
If you want to get the most for your hard-earned money in the Bluetooth speaker market, you need to check out the Ultimate Ears Boom 3, which is one of the most popular and best selling Bluetooth speakers in the market. It comes in a pretty compact size, and pumps out some loud sounds, on top of that it is extremely durable and has audio quality for ages, one of the very best without a doubt. Let’s take a closer look.
The Ultimate Ears Boom 3 is a tower speaker coming in a cylindrical shape, and the company has done the tower shape for a long time now, and it is better for the sound quality to be placed in that manner. It is more of a refined and streamlined device than its predecessor, with its smooth round column shape on top of its water-resistant fabric, and while we are at it, I should state that it has an IP67 rating, which means that it can be submerged up to 1 meter of depth for about 30 minutes before it gives up. What surprised me the most about this device is that it float on the water like a ball, making it the perfect tool for pool parties.
On the body of the Ultimate Ears Boom 3, you will find a loop that will allow you to attach it to your backpacks, a great feature for hikers and campers as well. There are built-in controls on the body, which consist of the volume controls that do not look like actual buttons. The device has no 3.5mm port, meaning that there is no possibility to work passively. On top of the device, you will find a button that will let you connect to your device and directly link it with your playlist.
This speaker is equipped with two active drivers and two passive bass radiators, which is the same setup as its predecessor, and it offers 360 degree sound thanks to that. I tested it by placing it in the middle of the room, and I heard the same sound all around the room. Without any blind spots or frequency loss, and I found out that it was pretty loud for its size, and the pre-tuned bass-range was perfect for contemporary music.
3. Bose SoundLink Revolve+
As far as sound devices go Bose, has always delivered some excellent speakers and headphones, but if you want the best Bluetooth speaker from its range you definitely should take a look at the Bose SoundLink Revolve+ which is a very portable device, has multi-device pairing, long battery life, great sound performance and overall prowess as a Bluetooth speaker.
The design of the Bose SoundLink Revolve+ is the same as the smaller SoundLink Revolve, which featured an excellent aluminum chassis and rubberized basis and control panel on top. The only update besides the size, the Bose SoundLink Revolve+ gets is the handle for carrying the device easily, which has proved to be handy right from the get-go. On top of the device, you will find the aforementioned controls, which include buttons for power, pairing, volume, aux switch, and a multifunction button that is dedicated to the voice assistant and playback controls as well. On the backside of the device, you will spot the micro USB port and the 3.5mm aux port, and on the bottom of the device I saw a tripod mount, and four metal contacts for connecting it to the charging dock.
The battery life of the Bose SoundLink Revolve+ is great, just like the manufacturer stated at 16 hours, it achieved that number comfortably. This means that you can take easily for your daily trips, weekend trips, and camping. While there is no visible battery indicator on the device, when you turn it off a voice will tell you the battery percentage.
Despite having a comparably small package the Bose SoundLink Revolve+ has some pretty big sounds coming out of it. It delivered a great 360-degree audio performance with a great trademark Bose sound quality and some pretty pleasing tones. While it has a little more emphasized bass like all Bose devices, it had plenty of clarity in the mids and highs. If you want to get the best sound experience from this I would suggest you mount it on a tripod, but even without it, the quality will be excellent.
2. Fugoo Style
The Fugoo Style is one of the best Bluetooth speakers in the market so far without any doubt, despite being a pretty old one. This device is pretty much flawless coming in with a customizable look, excellent sound performance, solid battery life, and despite being a little more expensive it still delivers excellent value for its price.
The Fugoo Style has a pretty interesting design and it is a little complicated so I first must talk about its core, which is an IP67 rated machine, and it has a very solid build and construction with a rubber and plastic combination that is shockproof, waterproof, and dustproof. In the aesthetics department, the core doesn’t look like much without the customizable skins that slide on it. Before moving on I should mention that on one side you will spot the micro USB port, and the 3.5mm port and on the other side you will see the power and Bluetooth button. To cover up that hideous core the company has provided some ‘jackets’ that will cover it up and deliver some great style to it, and there are some different setups you can find, however, the Style jacket that we are talking about today adds a nice honeycomb-patterned plastic to add durability and amazing aesthetically pleasing design. On top of that, in the package of the Fugoo Style, you will spot the strap mount, a 3.5mm cable, micro USB cable, and an AC adapter.
The battery life of the Fugoo Style is extremely impressive as it has a playback time of about 40 hours with medium volume, and about 24 hours with full volume which is extremely impressive and top of the class. With this quality alone the Fugoo Style wins the hearts of many customers and you can take it around for your weekend trips and play music all the time without any problem.
But there is more the Fugoo Style provides some serious 360-degree sound and it fires the sound in all directions properly making itself for a great party tool, thanks to its two tweeters, two mid-range drivers, and two passive radiators. For a speaker of this site, you can’t get a better bass performance, it was extremely powerful, and the mid-range was fairly consistent and pretty clear overall, the depth of the mids was great and the vocals are amazing. In the treble I didn’t notice any flaw as they were extremely clean and sharp, everything I listened to from this speaker was just great.
1. Marshall Kilburn II
On top of the list, we have the definite best Bluetooth speaker in the market so far, Marshall Kilburn II. The British amp manufacturer has thrived in the Bluetooth speaker and headphones market, and the second version of the Kilburn is just beautiful. This device has become the favorite of many users and the critics have given it some high marks, thanks to its amazing sound, rugged feel, portable body, retro aesthetics, and many more interesting features.
If you don’t know anything about Marshall’s speaker series, you will be a little surprised when you take a look at this amplifier looking speaker, which the manufacturer has done a perfect job with. It comes with a black or gray faux leather cover, and it measures about 6.5×9.6×5.5-inches in total and weighs about 5.5 pounds, in addition to that it has a strap that can be removed as well to carry it around.
On the front of the device, you will spot a metallic grille that has the Marshal logo on it and they hide a pair of 8-watt tweeters and a 20-watt woofer that provide a frequency range spanning from 52Hz to 20kHz. On the top part you will spot three knobs, that are for volume, bass and for treble, but no other playback controls. You can check the battery life of the device from the LED indicator and there is also a Bluetooth pairing button there, on the back you will spot a panel that inside lodges the power cable and the 3.5mm aux input. Before moving on I should mention the battery life of the speaker which achieved about 20 hours before shutting down.
Despite being a pretty mid-sized and portable speaker, Marshall Kilburn II delivered some solid bass with plenty of power and depth. I maxed out the bass and volume knobs to the end, and I noticed no distortion at all which is a sign of superior audio performance. The mids were exceptional, as they delivered a great vocal performance, and stringed instruments came out perfectly. The table was pretty good as well and I have no complaints about the sound performance, top marks here.
