The sun is shining and we’re ready for some summer fun. No great pool sesh is complete without your favorite playlist and an awesome Bluetooth speaker. Check out our three favorite options for hanging out and relaxing at the pool this season.
1. Best Overall: Ultimate Ears BOOM 3
The Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 wins the cake here with hands-down the best overall offerings. Delivering a balanced sound and a range of up to 100 feet, you can bump your favorite Drake songs as far away as the day is long. And don’t even worry about this speaker dying in the middle of your karaoke to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” 100 hours of battery life means your voice will give out before the power even gets to 50 percent. Did we mention it’s waterproof? Pool day, here we come.
2. Best Bass (by far): Bose SoundLink Revolve+
We all know that when the beat calls, you have to answer. We choose to do it with the Bose SoundLink Revolve+. If you’re looking to truly feel every pulse of that bass drum, then this is the one for you. Small but mighty, this battery-powered Bluetooth speaker delivers body-rocking musical magic with its 360-degree cylindrical design. If this price point isn’t jamming with you, opt for the SoundLink Micro for an equally bass-alicious experience.
3. Best Bang for Your Buck: Tribit MaxSound Plus
For the best sounding tunes and the easiest impact on your wallet, the Tribit MaxSound Plus is the way to go. Perfect for low-key pool gatherings, this speaker delivers shockingly great quality sound for right around $50. Add in the fact that it’s waterproof, has 20 hours of playtime, and a button to add extra bass, and you have yourself one heck of a party.
