Bluetooth speakers for over $200:

Bluetooth speakers for $100 or less

JBL Clip 3

Battery life: Up to 10 hours

The JBL Clip 3 is part of the ultra-portable Bluetooth speakers segment. It's not powerful enough for a party at home, but you'll often see it hanging from the backpack of someone rollerblading or snowboarding. Its IPX7 waterproof, small, and has a built-in carabiner, making it the perfect companion for outdoor activities. 

Despite the compact body, this is still a JBL speaker, so expect to be pleasantly surprised when you hear it for the first time.  

UE Wonderboom 2

Battery life: Up to 13 hours

Maybe more than anything, the Wonderboom 2 succeeds because of how reliable it is. It can survive a drop up to five feet, will safely float rather than sink to the bottom of a pool, and features like its multi-speaker mode are always easily accessible, without forcing users to download an extra app: you just take it with you, and the music follows. Plus, it just looks cute!

Bose SoundLink Micro

Battery life: Up to 6 hours

Bose joins the small Bluetooth speaker fray with its SoundLink Micro. It also comes with an IPX7 rating for water resistance and is light enough to be clipped almost anywhere. Compared to the previous two speakers, however, the battery life is a bit short and won't get you through a full day of hiking. Still, it's a good choice for a compact Bluetooth speaker from a reputable brand.

Tribit XSound Go

Battery life: Up to 24 hours

The Tribit XSound Go is undoubtedly inspired by the Beats Pill, but it comes at a much lower price, making it very enticing. It's specs aren't shabby at all, however! Two 6W drivers, waterproof just like the rest so far and a full day of battery life if you're not cranking up the volume too much. But you might want to do that since the XSound Go is managing to keep its sound distortion-free even at higher volume levels. If you're looking for the ultimate value Bluetooth speaker, the Tribit XSound Go is hard to beat.

Anker Soundcore Flare 2

Battery life: Up to 12 hours

Time for something affordable that can provide a bit more powerful sound. Unlike the mini speakers, this one is designed with home parties in mind. It provides a 360-degrees sound, has improved bass capabilities and even some light effects at the base. You can pair tens of Flare 2 speakers to create an all-encompassing audio experience.  The battery life is on the shorter side when it comes to Bluetooth speakers of that size, but it will get you through the night no problem.

Bluetooth speakers from $100 to $200

UE Boom 3

Battery life: Up to 15 hours

The UE Boom 3 is another great option that is waterproof and shockproof. UE puts its speakers through rigorous testing you you can take it anywhere without much worry. While earlier, UE Boom speakers had support for Amazon's Alexa voice assistant, it has now been revoked and this is just a regular speaker focused on great sound quality, but without smart assistance commands. In terms of sound quality, the UE Boom 3 is also excellent with crisp highs and mids, and an overall surprisingly powerful sound for its size.

JBL Flip 5

Battery life: Up to 12 hours

The JBL Flip 5 is where great sound quality, cool design and great price meet. It's the kind of speaker you'd be proud to whip out of your backpack and play some music for your friends. Unlike most other speakers, the Flip 5 comes with a Type C charging port which means you don't need to carry an extra cable and can use your phone's charger (unless it's an iPhone, of course). It's also just as durable as the best of them. Battery life is okay but not among the best and and unlike the Flip 4 (which is also a good, slightly cheaper option) it can't be used for calls.

Beats Pill+

Battery life: Up to 12 hours

Now here's something for the iPhone users of the world. Of course, the Beats Pill+ can be paired with Android phones as well, but it charges through a Lightning cable which makes it a lot more convenient for those part of the Apple ecosystem. The Pill+ packs a punch despite what its design might suggest. The sound is loud and clear and there's even a decent amount of bass to go with it. Best of all, you don't have to pay a hefty premium for this Beats product, the price of the Pill+ is in line with other products from its class. 

Bose SoundLink Mini II

Battery life: Up to 12 hours

The Bose SoundLink Mini 2 might have the most outdated look of them all, but it has absolutely stellar sound quality that beats the JBL Charge 3 and UE Boom 3 by a long shot. It has a more open sound stage, with much better defined sound in both highs and lows, and it has sufficient volume to fill a room nicely. It sounds exquisite, especially considering its rather small size. Unfortunately, it's not the best partner for your outdoor activities as it's lacking an IP rating.

UE Megaboom 3

Battery life: Up to 20 hours

The UE Megaboom 3 is probably the most popular large Bluetooth speakers out there and for a good reason: it blasts powerful 360-degree sound, allows pairing two speakers to get even more boom and has a rock solid connection that it can keep at distances of up to 150 feet. If the regular Boom 3 isn't good enough for your purposes then the Megaboom 3 will surely be able to deliver. 

Bluetooth speakers over $200

Marshall Kilburn II

Battery life: 20+ hours

The stylish-looking Marshall Kilburn will look great in any home with the recognizable Marshall design. But it's not just about the visual appeal as it also boasts a very clear and loud sound output that will definitely have music enthusiasts happy. And while it's bigger and heavier than most other speakers on the list, it does have a strap to carry it around so you can take your premium music experience anywhere and enjoy it for more than 20 hours. The price tag is a step above what we've looked at so far, but if it's within your budget, you won't regret getting the Kilburn II.

JBL Boombox

Battery life: Up to 24 hours

With a boomy bass and an overall impressive sound quality, the large-sized JBL Boombox is one more great big Bluetooth speaker. All speakers on this list can be used for an outdoor party but the Boombox is probably the only one that can do it without any compromises. To top it off, you can also use this speaker's massive 20,000mAh battery as a power bank to charge up your phone.

Sonos Move

Battery life: Up to 10 hours

The Sonos Move will fill your room or even garden with loud and balanced sound that will impress your guests. The company's traditions in audio tech have translated perfectly into this premium Bluetooth speaker and while it comes with a hefty price tag, it also has a lot to offer. The clean design will fit any contemporary living room nicely and if you need it somewhere else, just pick it up from the charging stand and place it wherever you feel like.
