The secret of sonic expand is not disclosed by the company and that is obvious. Mini II also boasts about its neat charging dock which doesn’t require much of efforts while plugging the cable.

After jumping in producing professional and consumer audio equipment, the Japanese electronics giant has finally mastered the development of digital audio technology. One of its examples stands to be “Envaya.” This speaker is one of the best all-around portable Bluetooth speakers that you would like to grab.
Its perfect balance between power and control makes it excel at the sound quality. The sound produced by this, is quite loud and clear. Another high spot of this, is the vocal detailing which doesn’t make you feel any difference even if the volume remains low.
The only thing which was missing in UE Roll 2 (the older sibling of the UE speakers) was the lack of bass. But this time the company made sure, it doesn’t lose on it and hence came up with “Wonderboom.” The new offering is better in every aspect and offers 50-foot wireless range, which calls for some applause. Again, its splashproof feature adds another feather in its hat. The sound quality of this, is in no match to any other speaker placed in the same price bracket.
Whenever we are up for scrambling among speakers, Bose remains one of the companies that surprises with more than of its product. Excellent build and best-quality sound have become a synonym to Bose.
After listing SoundLink Mini II at the top, the other one that we stumbled upon is “SoundLink Revolve.” This speaker offers 360-degree surround sound that gives you the liberty to roam freely in the party hall, without missing a single beat. The only thing that this speaker lacks is the waterproof feature. Sometimes, sound quality can’t be compromised with any other feature.
Ruark is one company which flaunts its passion for sound. Founded in 1986, Ruark always excelled in the sound and design department. Initially, the company rose to fame with its vintage DAB radios and all-in-one hi-fi systems.

The company has stuffed it well with features like optical input that allows you to hook it up to the TV that can act as soundbars. Additionally, this speaker comes with optional battery pack, that can keep you going non-stop for next 12 hours.
Many of you, who are well versed with Bluetooth speakers may find the listing of this on the list because Marshall Kilburn is bigger as compared to others mentioned here and also weighs a bit more. Also, this speaker lacks USB charging and waterproof feature.
But all these flaws can be well rounded up by the exceptional audio performance and the classic design. The notes produced by it sounds crystal clear to the ear. Marshall nailed the area where it matters the most.

Its amazing sound and built-in headphone amplifier can make you buy it any second. The premium Bluetooth speaker comes in aluminum or vegan leather skin.

UE Blast offers an impeccable audio output that can make many other speakers to go for a toss. Besides being a quality speaker, it is quite light on your pocket too in its segment. The best part is the built-in Alexa support that can help you to command it with your voice.
Its sturdy design and waterproof feature add more value to it. The speaker is a perfect fit for every kind of place. Be it your room or some hallway, the sound quality will keep you on your toes. The only issue that I faced with it was the fluctuating bass experience that sometimes crept in.

Don’t get disappointed by its design. It may look a little out of fashion due to its plastic covering attached to a piece of cardboard like a new toy car. At first glance, it looks more like a toy rather than a speaker. Fugoo Style-S offers some commendable booming sound quality.
The bright spot of this, is the feature that can allow you to pair it with another Style-S speaker to produce ultimate stereo experience. The robust build of it allows you to carry it to the beach and dump it on any rock. As per company claims, the battery of this speaker can last for about 15 hours, which according to me is decent enough. In terms of connectivity, Style-S lets you connect with it till 100 feet.
Riva Festival is the elder sibling of Riva Arena. It sounds extravagantly clear, that can be compared to sound similar to a floor-standing speaker at higher volumes. Riva offers wide options in connectivity part. Apart from Bluetooth, Festival can be connected over Wi-Fi, including AirPlay, DLNA, and DDMS.

You may have come across may waterproof speakers that sounds good. But what if I tell you, Ultimate Ears Roll 2 can survive up to 3 feet in the water and keep on buzzing for next 30 minutes. Are you going to believe it? Interestingly, you have to. The disc-shaped speakers offer good enough sound for a normal party. Don’t expect rocking bass from it.
The one thing that can take it down is its battery pack. Other features of Roll 2 includes linking up a pair of Roll 2s for stereo sound, add basic equalization and using the speaker as an alarm. Like Fugoo Style-S, Roll 2 also offers connectivity up to 100 feet. The speakers only lasted for about five and half hours before going to sleep. We hope, the next model upgrades on the battery performance.
