With summer already well underway, Amazon Prime Day is a great opportunity to make your outdoors fun in the sun time that much better by scoring a great deal on a portable Bluetooth speaker. Amazon typically lets these go in the 20% to 50% off range depending on the model, making this already affordable personal audio category even more attractive.
Our best waterproof speakers guide covers much of what you need to know about portable Bluetooth speakers, but here are the basics. You’ll want a model that is compact and lightweight, is waterproof (or water-resistant), has strong battery life – and sounds good! The models listed here all meet that criteria, with most vetted through a TechRadar review.
Whether you’re hitting the beach, camping in the woods, hiking, biking, or whatever, outdoor life can be made better with tunes in tow. We’ve scoured Amazon’s offerings and created this roundup of not just the best portable Bluetooth speakers, but the best Prime Day deals.
Amazon Prime Day Bluetooth speaker deals: US
Bose SoundLink Color II:
$129 $79 at Amazon
Save $50 - Bose portables tend to be priced higher than other battery-powered Bluetooth speakers, but this sweet Prime Day deal will net you the company’s SoundLink Color II for just $79 – a 39% discount. The SoundLink Color II’s lithium-ion battery will give you up to 8 hours play time before it needs to be USB-charged, and you can pair two SoundLink for stereo or party mode playback. This is only the second time Amazon has priced Bose’s speaker this low, so it’s a deal not to be missed.
$39.95 $34.99 at Amazon
Save 12% - JBL’s portable Bluetooth speakers tend to be good, but they’re even better when they’re getting a Prime Day deal. Our review of the Go2 praised its ultra-compact and waterproof design while knocking it a bit for low battery life. But hey, as of today this is a cheaper speaker than yesterday, so if you’re looking for a choice Bluetooth portable, grab it.
$169 $119 at Amazon
Save $50 - Many portable Bluetooth speakers look like toys, but Marshall’s Emberton looks like a guitar amp. If that’s not enough to grab your attention, maybe this will: the Emberton is $50 off in a rockin’ deal. Aside from its cool looks, we admired this speaker’s great battery life and rugged design in our review. This is a great Prime Day chance to snag a road-worthy Bluetooth speaker, so don’t delay (or flange).
