A good portable Bluetooth speaker can bring your favorite music with you wherever you go. Whether you’re looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker to take with you when you’re outdoors at the beach, park, backyard, or even in different rooms of your home, there are countless models to choose from that are currently on the market. Ideally, you’ll want a speaker with a long-lasting battery life that’s well-built with an IP rating for water resistance so it can withstand getting a bit wet when you take it outside. That said, it’s important to note that smaller speakers are more likely to struggle to get loud and reproduce a thumpy and rumbling low-bass.
The Sonos Move is the best portable Bluetooth speaker we’ve tested. This battery-powered Bluetooth speaker has a built-in handle to use to carry it from room to room. Its long-lasting battery life of over 10 hours makes it great for long listening sessions, though this varies depending on your usage habits. It also comes with an IP56 rating for dust and water resistance, certifying it to withstand direct contact with water for up to three minutes and dust for around two to eight hours, so you can take it outside without worrying about it getting wet or dirty. With its room correction feature turned on, it has a fairly well-balanced sound profile suitable for listening to a wide variety of audio content, though the room correction feature is currently only available with iOS devices.
