There is nothing better than travelling the world. The second best thing, I think, is packing! Who doesn’t love the exciting feeling of excitement when you choose what to bring along for your holiday? I love visualising my outfits and I always take selfies of my outfits to bring along with me. In terms of tech, I always bring some cool pop sockets to match my outfits and obviously my camera. Sometimes I also bring my GoPro camera, or my just some snazzy phone accessories that will help me take good photos.
Another important aspect, of course, is the music! Are you in search of the best portable Bluetooth speaker?
Here are my top choices for travelling:
JBL Clip 3
These are compact and waterproof. The JBL 3 clip has plenty to offer in the small package. This includes equipment to attach it to your bag or clothing and there are plenty of colours to choose from. The IPX& waterproof rating is great and you get around 10 hours of playtime with an inbuilt echo and noise-cancelling speakerphone and is quite affordable for many budgets.
JBL Flip 4
This one comes in a little pricier than the clip 3 but it gives you 12 hours of battery life and you can connect 2 wireless tablets or smartphones if you want to take turns being a DJ. The flip has a IPX7 waterproof build that gives you echo and noise-cancelling for clearer calls. If you have the desire, you can link 100JBL connect and enable speakers if you want one great amplified tune session. It has a button to activate Siri or Google Now.
Anker Motion Q
This is a very understated design with a waterproof IPX7 rating, 360 degrees sound and it floats. It comes with 10 hours of battery life and comes in under $60.00. It is firmly designed to showcase the fact you don’t need to spend a fortune to enjoy a versatile or functional design.
Ultimate Ears Wonderboom
These have some great features all in a burly design that let your personality shine through with plenty of colours to choose from. It floats and has an IPX7 waterproof rating and it can deliver 360 degrees of music for up to 10 hours. If you want something with more sound, then you can go to the upgraded version the Boom 3 or the megaboom for even more volume.
Bose SoundLink Micro
These might look small, but they are mighty. With the aims of quality sounds in an easy portable form that is waterproof. It comes with the IPX7 waterproof rating, Siri and Google assistant and speakerphone functions. It comes with a tear-resistant strap that can be secured to bags, bikes, clothing etc. if you find you want more you can upgrade to their Revolve which is more size and weight but more volume.
Beats by Dre Pill+
So these are just under $200 and come in at one of the most expensive speakers. They offer a durable and sleek style that will adapt to many environments. It comes with 12 hours of battery life and you can charge your phone or other devices from it, so it doubles as a battery pack. You can control the sound from two different Bluetooth sources, and you can even tag- team with a second one in order to play simultaneously from both of the speakers. This however given the price is not waterproof.
From this list here you will surely find a portable speaker that suits your needs. Whether for a day at the beach, pool party with friends or just after some music while going for an enjoyable bike ride these speakers work well for all different uses.
Do some research first and ensure the one you choose is waterproof if you are planning a day by the water.
