Music was made for sharing. And music was made to be brought everywhere: on the beach, in a picnic, or under the stars. Now, what is the best Bluetooth speaker for you and your various moods?

There are different moods for every kind of music. Sometimes you want the loudest Bluetooth speaker for a party, wild times, or a road trip. Other times you just want to close your eyes.

We rank the best Bluetooth speaker of 2019 that won’t break the bank..

10. Denon Envaya

Denon Envaya

Fill the whole room or atmosphere with sounds. The Denon Envaya, the best Bluetooth speaker 2019 gave us when it started, filled our eyes with deep and rich music. The speaker lives up to being tank-shaped by not only being durable but dust and waterproof as well.

However, it is also tank-like in a sense the buttons along the side could feel stiff to the touch and be difficult to operate.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 200mV (line). That’s loud.

9. Marshall Kilburn II

Marshall Kilburn II

Marshall Kilburn II has a rugged, retro and edgy vibe to it that appeals to rock fans. But if acoustic is more of your style, Marshall Kilburn II is still the best Bluetooth speaker for playing guitar music. While it could get heavy, it is still lighter and more portable than your usual Marshall speaker — enough for a small gig or mini jam session. In a nutshell, Marshall Kilburn II is the best Bluetooth speaker for the true musicians.

It has maximum sound pressure of 100.4 dB SPL. Pretty loud.

8. Bang and Olufsen Beoplay P2

Bang and Olufsen Beoplay P2

The Bang and Olufsen Beoplay P2 is light to use. It not only is ultra-portable and small but is easy to use, with a companion app and all. For its size, the speaker has good bass quality. The speaker has nice touch gestures to make the listening experience light as well. It is also light to the wallet for its price.

To top it off, the sound quality isn’t too bad for something that fits right in your hand, which makes it the best Bluetooth speaker to bring around.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

It has a peak power of 100W. Not really, and there are louder speakers for the same price. But it does not give the kind of lightness the B&O Beoplay P2 has.

7. UE Wonderboom

UE Wonderboom

Heading outdoors? The UE Wonderboom is the best Bluetooth speaker for outdoor music listening. It works wonders with its 50-foot wireless range, unique form factor, waterproof quality, and sound. It is the best Bluetooth speaker for the beach, a pool party or lounging, or even your bath.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

We admit it lacks in the bass department. The treble sounds poor once you crank up the volume.

6. Anker Soundcore Flare

Anker Soundcore Flare

The Anker Soundcore Flare screams practicality. For around $20, you already have a Bluetooth speaker with an edge in sound quality. It also does not look cheap with its sophisticated looks, and believe it or not, it is also waterproof. The Anker Soundcore Flare is the best Bluetooth speaker that offers it all without putting a dent on your wallet.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

We don’t expect such an affordable Bluetooth speaker to have the richest sounds. No. And playing it at max volume makes the music sound harsh.

5. Bose SoundLink Mini II

Bose SoundLink Mini II

Alright, so the Bose SoundLink Mini II came out in 2015. But the quality is so good we brought it along with us in 2018, the way it can be brought everywhere. The Bose SoundLink Mini II is the most timeless and best Bluetooth speaker. With its bass, highs and midrange, you could bring it with you every time and at any age.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

It has a Bluetooth range of 30 feet. Fair enough.

4. Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless

Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless

The Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless is the best Bluetooth speaker if you’re into beautiful things. The design puts a sense of aesthetic to your listening experience. It also has beautiful sounds too: the clear and natural sounds fill the room with good mid-range and bass. While it is quite expensive, this is the best Bluetooth speaker for those with exquisite audiophile tastes.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

While it is loud, the sound quality of the Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless is sensitive to where it is placed. It cannot handle multiple sources or rooms, though having it sit in one nook at home is pleasurable enough.

3. JBL Charge 3

JBL Charge 3

The cool and waterproof JBL Charge 3 is the best Bluetooth speaker in the sense that it could charge your phone as well. Listen to your music while charging your devices through its USB. It is innovative, ahead of its time, and makes it dominant in the line of portable Bluetooth speakers. Of course, the sound quality is rich.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

It has an output power of 2 x 10. Loud and good.

2. Bose SoundLink Revolve

Bose SoundLink Revolve

Coming second to the list leading up to the best Bluetooth speaker is the Bose SoundLink Revolve. Imagine dancing to music in a party with the speaker in your hands and still getting the best quality as the speaker does not lose its audio fidelity — now that is the best Bluetooth speaker for fun times. It is the best Bluetooth speaker to use indoors.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

Not so outdoors. We don’t recommend the Bose SoundLink Revolve for the beach, not only because it is not dust and waterproof, but also because of its limited range. (30ft or 10m) It still is second on our list though, for its expansive and detailed sound.

1. UE Boom 3

ue-boom-3

Now, this is the best Bluetooth speaker for everything. It has everything the other Bluetooth speakers offer in spades. You could crank up the volume to its loudest and not be irritated by the sound. You could pack light with it as you go camping, to the beach or even for everyday use — but you don’t have to think about it inside your bag as it is durable as it is. You could bring it to the beach, as it is both waterproof and dustproof. You could navigate through songs in your playlist without ever touching your phone. And to top it off, it is affordable for such a good steal. It has been the best Bluetooth speaker for four years.

Is it the loudest Bluetooth speaker?

The maximum sound level is at 90dBA while the frequency range is at 90Hz – 20kHz. Wow! Powerful sound. Powerful Bluetooth speaker.
