Bluetooth speakers are ideal for those who like to listen to music on the go, thanks to their compact and portable design. Additionally, they’re really easy to set up, no hassle of wires, just turn on your Bluetooth and you’re good to go. However, there’s always a risk when taking any kind of gadget outdoors. The biggest worry is accidentally dropping them in water, or getting them wet in the rain. With these particular Bluetooth speakers, you don’t have to worry about water. We’ve put together a list of some great waterproof Bluetooth speaker options which, as a bonus, also have great battery life.
JBL is a well known brand when it comes to Bluetooth speakers. The Flip 3 Stealth Edition is different from the non-stealth edition in many ways, one of which is that the Flip 3 Stealth Edition comes with an IPx7 rating while the regular one only comes with an IPx5 rating. With the JBL Flip 3 Stealth, you'll be getting JBL's signature sound, i.e., bass-leaning sound, packed with a 3000mAh Li-ion battery which can deliver up to 10 hours of music, non-stop.
The Sony SRS-XB23 is a rugged and waterproof offering from Sony which comes packed with some deep bass. These Bluetooth speakers can also switch between mono and stereo playback. These speakers come with an IP67 rating, meaning it's dustproof and is water resistant, being able to withstand heavy rains, splashes of water and can be submerged up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. Sony has claimed that these speakers are salt-water resistant as well, making them beach friendly.
The Wonderboom is a very lightweight and compact offering from Ultimate ears, which packs some pretty loud sound for its small size. Additionally, it's fully waterproof, and will actually float in water. It's also shock resistant and dustproof, and has a battery life of up to 10 hours playing music non-stop. It should be noted though that the wonderboom does not have any speaker capabilities, if that's something you're looking for in your Bluetooth speakers.
The Tribit StormBox is a small and lightweight Bluetooth speaker, with a sound profile that should appeal to bass lovers with its Bass Boost. The StormBox comes with an IPx7 waterproof rating, so you can safely take these speakers outdoors without having to worry about them taking water damage. The Tribit StormBox also comes with impressive battery life, with up to 20 hours of playback, however, like with all Bluetooth speakers, this is dependent on how loud the volume is. At full volume, playback time is reduced. This is a great minimalistic and waterproof portable speaker offering from Tribit.
