We heard you loud and clear in the nomination round, but now it’s time to pick the best cheap Bluetooth speaker. The five most-nominated options are listed below, so read up on them, and don’t forget to vote at the bottom of the post.
Anker SoundCore. Basically anything made by Anker is of the highest quality and performs very well for the price. I own 2 of these and have convinced 5 others to purchase as well. They are super simple to pair/use, sound fantastic and are very loud for the size. - Bigbrothathunda
Just picked one of these up from Amazon last week as well. Got to use it this weekend while working in the garage and it sounds phenomenal for the price you pay at that sale price. - yoshispeed
Decent sound, very well built, long lasting, and waterproof. I have the old version too, and I literally used it as a hammer to pound in tent stakes numerous times. - brnpttmn
Yes! I got one of these last black Friday for around $19.00 so I could listen to music/podcasts off my phone while in the shower. The sound quality/volumne for such a small speaker is impressive. Tempted to buy more just to put in other rooms.
Also love the fact that if you do get the speaker grill part wet, it wipes right off without leaving any trace in the little speaker holes. My expensive ass Bose speakers don’t even do that. - TGS1985
I love my Anker Soundcore Sport. Waterproof, shockproof, dustproof.
It’s got a great battery life (I’ve gotten 10+ hours of use out of a full charge) and has amazing sound quality (more than loud enough to fill an 1100 sq ft apartment and still sound crystal clear). - Yes, I Like Jukes
Editor’s note: This has been discontinued in favor of the Anker SoundCore.
Amazon Basics, easy to use, splash proof, and the loop makes it easy to hang in various places. Also has a microphone for phone calls. Well priced at $14.99. - Daniel Groven
