Don’t Let a Fear of Water Damage Stop You from Jamming: The Best Water-Resistant Wireless Speakers

Music can elevate any experience, whether you’re on a scenic drive or relaxing poolside. That said, it’s not worth bothering with a speaker system that is too heavy, bulky or at risk of death by splash — and forget about dealing with cords in your backyard or local public pool.

The best wireless speakers manage to find a balance between portability, weight, sound, durability and, of course, price. The team at SpecOut compiled a list of the top 25 waterproof portable speakers for the upcoming summer months.

Our methodology was simple. Every entry on the list had to be portable as intended for use, offer optional battery-power functionality, be water resistant and have a currently available price. We’ve ranked the list from lowest to highest Smart Rating, a SpecOut-calculated composite score that factors in expert ratings, features and connectivity, and sound quality.

10. Polk Audio Omni S2R

Smart Rating: 93.84
Price: $249.95

With both wired connectivity and Wi-Fi connection, this speaker can produce sound that isn’t possible with most Bluetooth units. Its strong 10-hour battery life is 25 percent longer than the average in its class.

9. Ultimate Ears Roll

Smart Rating: 93.85
Price: $49.99

Small and stylish, the Ultimate Ears Roll puts out serious sound for its size. Not only does it have a unique look, but it isn’t afraid of the water.

8. Archt Audio One

Smart Rating: 93.86
Price: $549

The Archt Audio One does its best to pack in enough features to justify its high price. Not only does it offer wired, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, but it comes with AirPlay functionality as well.

7. Pioneer A3 XW-SMA3-K

Smart Rating: 93.90
Price: $240

This highly rated model has easy configuration options. Its powerful sound comes with the drawback of heft — it weighs in at more than seven pounds.

6. Fugoo Style

Smart Rating: 93.96
Price: $149.99

This unit’s 40-hour battery life is 400 percent longer than the average in its class. It also features sound quality and ruggedness that has reviewers raving.

5. Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15

Smart Rating: 94.01
Price: $598.98

With an unmistakeable design and absolutely stunning audio, this unit goes a long way to justifying its high price. Its battery can go for an impressive 24 hours of playback time, and it has a peak power of 240 watts.

4. Philips ShoqBox Mini BT2200

Smart Rating: 94.04
Price: $60

A dual-firing driver helps this unit reach high volumes without distortion. Light and portable, the ShoqBox lives up to its name by being exceptionally tough.

3. ECOXGEAR EcoPebble

Smart Rating: 94.43
Price: $41.59

The EcoPebble’s sound is fine considering its modest price tag. If you’re looking to save some money, it weighs just 0.5 pounds, but offers a shorter battery life.

2. Creative Muvo mini

Smart Rating: 94.7
Price: $46.91

With both Bluetooth and wired connectivity options, this unit offers 10 full hours of playback time and 2,200mAh.

1. Denon Cocoon Portable

Smart Rating: 94.79
Price: $135

The Cocoon offers both Wi-Fi and AirPlay, but only lasts five hours without being recharged. The sound is solid, but it’s on the heavier side, weighing 7.2 pounds.
