The Best Bluetooth Speakers for 2021

Ready for a great summer departure? If you want to spend your summer holidays in music with friends or family, we advise you to buy a Bluetooth speaker.

This type of device can compensate for the lack of power, and often the sound quality of your smartphone.

But the Bluetooth speaker must not only be compact and light (around 500 gm), but also waterproof so as not to be damaged if it accidentally falls into the pool. 

We have therefore selected models that benefit from IPX7 certification, that is to say, which resist immersion at 1 m depth for 30 minutes.

The other selection criteria are the price which must be reasonable: around 110 US dollars.

Our rating takes into account the sound quality, but also the battery life. Here is the ranking of the five waterproof portable Bluetooth speakers for your summer vacation:

Here are the 5 Best Best Bluetooth Speakers for 2021

  1. Sony SRS-XB22
  2. Divacore Bloop
  3. JBL Flip 5
  4. Bose SoundLink Micro
  5. Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2

1. Sony SRS-XB22

The SRS-XB22 delivers a very good quality sound, with the bass present. It can use the LDAC codec, which offers a bit rate three times higher than the classic SBC codec and improves sound transmission in Bluetooth.

This codec is present on Android 8 and higher smartphones but requires the installation of the very good Sony Music Center app. We also appreciate the presence of NFC on this product to facilitate pairing.

This Bluetooth speaker has mood lights, but it doesn't show up in broad daylight and doesn't do much.

Weak point: The autonomy of this Bluetooth speaker is not very high (8 hours 24 minutes).

The enclosure, on the other hand, resists water and dust (IP67 certification). Finally, it is possible to associate several speakers by pressing a button.


  • Totally Dustproof
  • Washable and Waterproof
  • Long battery life
  • Sound effects with Party Booster
  • Boost our parties with flashy lights

Overall score : 6.78 / 10 | Price:  135 US Dollar

2. Divacore Bloop

The Divacore Bloop Bluetooth speaker is distinguished by its lightweight aluminum case, only 3 cm thick, fitted with a leather strap for easy transport.

This Bluetooth speaker (with NFC) and waterproof (IPX7 certification) deliver the sound of good quality, but which saturates if you push the volume down.


  • 10 hours of playtime
  • IPX7 Waterproof
  • Pair & Play
  • Speakerphone
  • Powerful sound

Overall score : 6.83 / 10 | Price:  110 Dollar |

3. JBL Flip 5

This sealed cylindrical enclosure (IPX7) can be used vertically or horizontally. Its sound quality is satisfactory, but we would have liked there to be more bass. Flip 4 has excellent autonomy, which approaches 25 hours according to our measurements.

 We appreciate the battery level indicator and the audio jack input. And if an enclosure is not powerful enough, a button allows you to associate several, up to a hundred!


  • Auto-power
  • Bluetooth
  • Speakerphone
  • Voice Assistant integration 
  •  IPX7 waterproof design
  • 3.5 mm audio cable Input 

Overall score : 7.71 / 10 | Price:  113 US Dollar |

4. Bose SoundLink Micro

This small waterproof is the best Bluetooth speaker enclosure (IPX7) that fits in your hand and weighs only 290 gm.

But it surprises by delivering a warm mono sound, with very good bass reproduction. A feat for such a small format.

Too good, we put this in a vertical position because the sound is too good. However, a detachable strap allows it to be attached to the belt. Autonomy is also excellent according to our measurements.


  • Tear-resistant strap
  • IPX7 waterproof
  • Made-up of silicone rubber(High-quality material)
  • Small and portable
  • Battery life up to 6 hours

Overall score : 7.82 / 10 | Price:  135 US Dollar |

5. Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2

The second version of the Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker resumes its barrel-shaped design and adds the outdoor boost mode, which increases the volume when used outdoors.

The sound is good but lacks a bit of bass, especially if this mode is on.

There is also saturation if the volume is full, which fortunately is not necessary to have good sound power.

The enclosure is resistant to water, but also to dust (IP67). Its autonomy is excellent (more than 22 hours according to our measurements).

Finally, it is possible to associate two Wonderboom 2 by pressing a single button.
