Waterproof Speakers: Are There Any Good Ones?

Everyone has a price right? Some don’t like to pay money for anything. Other are happy to pay for the latest thing and then there are those who just want the middle of the road and decent price tag.

Nearly all models out now are Bluetooth enabled, meaning you can pair them with your phone, take calls and control your music. There is something nice about knowing you can own a speaker that can absolutely handle it if your friend accidentally kicks it into the pool. With waterproof speakers, these situations could be a laughing matter. You can pretended ruined your awesome sound system when you retrieve it from the pool and yell out ‘Just kidding’ before turning it back on.

Because the market is now saturated with these items, I’ve come up with a plan. Here are the top cheap, middle of the road and expensive waterproof speakers based on the review statistics on Amazon.com.


$25 is pretty cheap and the AYL-SoundFit has an average 4.5 star rating from over 3500 customers. 76% of them gave it 5 stars. Good odds that this is a safe buy. With 5-watt audio drivers it promises 12 hours of tunes. You shouldn’t drop it in the pool for long but it will definitely survive if you’re caught in the rain. It even has a few color options.

Middle of the Road

JBL Charge 3 is the way to go for middle of the road. Of the 3000 customer reviews, 80% gave it 5 stars. Most complimented its ease with pairing to mobile devices and other JBL speakers, its stamina of 20 hours, the color choices and the port to charge your phone. For just over $100, you really can’t be unhappy with this one.

Shout out to Braven BRV-XXL at just under $300. It looks nice, has 14 hours of play time and comes with a bottle opener.


Customers listed the punchy sound, its ability for being cranked to full volume without distortion and its extra feature which ensured everyone’s full attention. Not only is it waterproof but it comes with a synchronized light show. At just over $400 it almost sounds like it could make you the life of any party. If you don’t like parties, tailgating with this baby will guarantee you are invited to every single one.
