Listening to music where you want it and how you want it has never been easier than in 2019. With the emergence of smart speakers and the phone and computer industry starting to move toward wireless transmission methods for personal listening, it’s a great time to be a music lover. But with so many Bluetooth speakers coming onto the market in 2019, how do you decide which one is best for your needs? In our article on the Best Bluetooth Speakers 2019, we’ll discuss which speakers we think are worth your time, and ones that will leave you…well…blue.
Best Bluetooth Speakers 2019 | Portable Listening
One of the biggest benefits of small, bluetooth speakers is that they’re immensely portable. You can take them wherever you go, and a lot of products are now offering pretty good sound.
But maybe the best thing about these portable Bluetooth Speakers from 2019 is that you can almost always get a decent speaker within your price range. Let’s look at our favorites in the premium, and budget categories.
Best Bluetooth Speakers 2019 | Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker
Great sound, great longevity and omnidirectional projection in a water and drop resistant design make the Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker one of the best in our list of the Best Bluetooth Speakers of 2019.
But, there is a catch; it’s expensive. Coming in at $299 retail, it’s one of the more expensive small bluetooth speakers in 2019. But it’s also one of the best.
Looking around the internet, we found that most professional review sites rated it in the 4/5 star range, with some saying that it’s the best speaker in its size range.
Best Bluetooth Speakers 2019 | Tribit XSound Go Mini Bluetooth Speaker
The Tribit XSound Go Mini Bluetooth Speaker is a perfect, bite-sized bluetooth speaker that packs decent sound into an attractive, waterproof design.
But maybe the most attractive thing about the Tribit XSound Go Mini Speaker is the price. Coming in at $33,j it’s a great option for somebody who needs a cheap, throwaround speaker that they can take camping, hiking, or wherever life takes them.
While it does have limitations in terms of sound (it chugs a bit on sonically complicated tracks, especially bass-filled music), it presents a solid value.
Best Bluetooth Speakers 2019 | Looking Ahead
2019 is just getting started, so we think there are a lot more great products to look forward to. So, what’s on our wish list? Let’s lay out some new features we hope to see in the new year.
Best Features for Bluetooth Speakers in 2019
- BASS – One problem area we have with many smaller, Bluetooth Speakers is that they struggle with bass. There’s no easy solution, though some companies have found ways to work lower frequencies into their products. We would keep an eye on releases from acoustic masterminds Bose for some bass-filled options this year.
- Durability – If 2018 was the year of water-proof speakers, 2019 will be the year of durable, drop-proof speakers. It’s a no-brainer. We started to see some durable speakers come onto the market, but few offered the sound to accompany that increase in quality.
- Multifunctionality – While bluetooth was the go-to option for connectivity in portable speakers in 2018, in 2019 we hope to see more multifaceted options for people who want to connect with other wireless options.
