The 11 Best Portable Bluetooth Speakers:

To give you a taste of this exciting new design trend, we’ve put together a list of 11 of the best looking portable Bluetooth outdoor speakers we’ve come across in our search for the best portable Bluetooth speakers.

1. Outdoor Technology Turtle Shell


Outdoor Technology Turtle Shell Wireless Boom Box White

Outdoor Technology is well-known for the quality of their outdoor speakers and it’s no exception with the Turtle Sell. It’s rugged, comes in several bright colors and looks like something from space ship.

2. Boombotix Boombot1


Boombotix Boombot1 Squinty Pink

The Boombot 1 has recently been upgrade to  the Boombot 2 and due to the success of these cute-yet-powerful speakers Boombotix now lets you “design” your own speaker with their Build a Bot software.

3. Scosche BoomBottle


Scosche BoomBottle

The Scosche Boombottle is exactly what it looks like, a portable speaker which looks like a water bottle. If music is more important to you than water, pop it into your bike’s water bottle holder and pump some tunes while you pump the trails.

4. Pyle PWPBT60 Sound Box Splash


Pyle PWPBT60OR Sound Box Splash Green

Pyle makes great speakers so even though I didn’t really like the design of the Sound Box Splash I had to give it a test drive. I purposefully used the above military type colors image, because this speaker is as tough and mean as it looks. For 50$ is a damn bargain.

5. GOgroove SonaVERSE BXL


GOgroove SonaVERSE BXL

I haven’t had the opportunity to test it yet, so all I can say is the design is classier than most and could probably pull of an Afro.

6. Pyle Street Blaster PBMSPG100


Pyle Street Blaster PBMSPG100

This one from Pyle won’t look out of place on a rocket ship and for $200+ I’d say that’s about the only place it belongs.

7. HALOWAY Party


HALOWAY Party

Like a disco ball and lava lamp, this is something you don’t need, but just as might well get. At $19.99 this is an absolute bargain and sound wise it’s actually surprisingly good.

8. JBL Pulse


JBL Pulse

With lights that move to the music, 7 presets and beautiful overall design this is a funky speaker I don’t mind paying a bit extra for.

9. RevJams DISCOTEK


RevJams DISCOTEK

This is essentially the same as the JBL Pulse, just cheaper. Taking into account the price, overall the reviews are very positive.

10. GOgroove Koala Pal


GOgroove Koala Pal

You buy this either for your children or as a joke for your SO. At just over $10 though you could give each child one and your SO something a bit more sturdy. They have a whole range of different animals including a penguin, panda and Android bot.

11. Coosh CBT791Bc


Coosh CBT791B

This tough little speaker takes road trips with the Pyle PWPBT60 Sound Box Splash, pairs with nearly anything and is really affordable at around $30. Even though it looks great, unfortunately you’ll have to keep it off the ground and out of the water as it’s not waterproof.
