This compact Bluetooth speaker was named one of our favorites of 2022. It’s both dust- and waterproof with an IP67 certification and is rated for 16 hours of battery life at moderate volume levels. The speaker plays bigger than you’d think for its small size, with some decent punch to its bass, and comes in five cool color options. It also has an integrated microphone, in case you want to use it as a speakerphone. Read our Sony SRS-XB01 review.
If you’re looking for heavier bass with low distortion this is a solid option to consider. This speaker also boasts an IP67 waterproof rating. And the battery life is impressive, too, delivering up to 24 hours of playback at moderate volume levels. Read our Sony SRS-XB43 review.
Now, if you want to keep the party going for hours, consider the SRS-XG500. It has an impressive 30-hour battery, as well as quick-charging. Just 10 minutes of charging will provide up to three hours of playback. The speaker also integrates an easy-carry handle and LED ring lighting to set the mood. It’s IP66 rated water resistant and it even has a rear port where a mic can be plugged in if you want to sing along.
There are some solid speaker options for your home as well.
This premium speaker has Chromecast built-in, includes Spotify Connect and offers 360 Reality Audio support for an immersive experience that fills the room. The sound is diffused both horizontally and vertically, giving a fuller sound. This option requires an AC power outlet, making it a stationary speaker. But it can be added to the speaker group in the Google Home or Amazon Alexa ecosystems.
