Here is a List of Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker Under 50
Dollars in 2021
1. OontZ Angle 3 Ultra
Oontz Angle 3 is a perfect choice in case you need a portable budget Bluetooth speaker. It is water resistant and it can be used indoors and outdoors. It is a perfect choice if you need a shower speaker or if you need a speaker that you can use while cycling or hiking. You can also bring it with you to the pool or to the beach. If you are looking for a big/loud sound in a small and compact package, Oontz Angle 3 Ultra is the speaker for you.
2. Tribit XSound Go
Many people just want a Bluetooth speaker that sounds better than their phone’s built-in speakers, that can follow them wherever they go, and it would be nice if the price point meant losing or breaking it wouldn’t be tear-inducing. The Tribit XSound Go checks all of those boxes. It sounds fairly good, is lightweight and IPX7 waterproof, and is one of the least expensive speakers out there. Sure, this speaker doesn’t provide audiophile-approved sound quality, but it is more than capable of serenading some friends soaking in a sunset or relaxing on the beach. It also lasts 18.5 hours on a single charge, so you can keep the party going into the wee hours of the night.
Honestly, the XSound Go is so good, and so incredibly cheap, that it becomes the very first product that we can recommend without any reservation. Seriously, the only issues we had with it were very minor. Its giant battery (the one that gives it 24 hours of playback time) takes a long time to charge, at least four hours, or longer than your smartphone and laptop combined. And the controls are a little hard to see, given that they are the same color as the body. But otherwise, the XSound Go is a perfect low-cost sound machine!
3. JBL Clip 3
Bring the party poolside, to the beach, or wherever you go this summer with the Midnight Black Clip 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker. At 5.4 inches, this compact Bluetooth speaker streams music from your phone or tablet and even features noise-cancelling speakerphone technology to allow for clear phone calls. This speaker is water-resistant and able to withstand being submerged in up to 3.3 feet of water for 30 minutes thanks to its IPX7 rating. This portable speaker is designed with a built-in carabiner clip, so you can easily attach this speaker to your backpack, belt loop, and more. On a full charge, the JBL Clip 3 gives you up to 10 hours of playback, but if you use the included micro-USB cable you can recharge the speaker, so the music never has to stop.
It might look better than its predecessor and have marginally better battery life, but beyond that, it’s difficult to make the case that the Clip 3 improves on the Clip 2 in any meaningful way.
In fact, the older model is not only more versatile and cheaper but also sounds better. If you’re looking for a small waterproof Bluetooth speaker to take travelling with you, you know which one to buy.
4. Wonderboom Waterproof
Great little speaker this one. Heartily recommend it. Sound is good, clean and powerful with plenty of volume. You can pair two of the speakers together if you like, but even on its own there’s enough volume here for most activities. Outside it will get a little lost, so perhaps consider two if you’re planning outdoor parties.
There’s no app here, unlike other UE speakers. It’s a simple pairing process and it takes a couple of seconds and has clear audible tones that tell you what’s going on. You learn how to use the speaker really quickly, and it’s great to use.
The water and life proofing is also excellent, and I now have a speaker I can take in the shower to listen to podcasts on – it’s awesome. Plus my kids are captivated by this plucky little bluetooth speaker.
The Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4 provides much more volume than most other portable Bluetooth speakers, but does so at the expense of portability. Weighing in at 4.5 pounds and taking up about the same amount of space as a basketball, this speaker certainly isn’t going to accompany you on very many adventures. What it can do is easily follow you to every room in your house and into your backyard, providing loud and high-quality music as you go. If you’re not too worried about volume and just want a portable speaker for your home that sounds great, the Bose SoundLink Revolve sounds a bit better and doesn’t cost much more.
5. iFox iF012
Out of 1,324 Amazon Reviews, iFox has garnered 4.5 out 5 stars, with only 169 bad reviews, and the rest are positives.
Because of its price, battery life, durability, and the family oriented customer service style of Michael Shinnick, the owner of iFox, it has been one of the most successful Bluetooth shower speakers.
For a reasonable price, iFox has made a very functional shower speaker, but only for the purpose of a shower speaker. In terms of audio quality, you may need to look for something else. But in terms of reliability, functionality & durability, the iFox iF012 Bluetooth Shower Speaker takes the cake.
Models here at the more affordable end of the market tend to be rugged and super portable, so lookout for a durable design and waterproofing, or at least water resistance (the latter meaning you shouldn’t fully submerge your speaker in the drink).
