9 Powerful wireless speakers for any occasion

Music is life. At least, for a lot of us, it is. We find it hard to do anything without our favorite tunes playing in the background. And forget about trying to have a party of any sort without music. Things get pretty awkward, pretty fast. Wouldn't it be great to have music anywhere, anytime? Now, you can.

Bowers & Wilkins Formation Wedge Angled Speaker in Black

We all have that one friend. The one who brings their guitar to every party and busts it out after they’re a couple of drinks in. That can be great…or it can get super awkward. And sometimes, you just don’t feel like sitting around and singing “Kumbaya” with everyone. Wouldn’t it be great to always have a speaker with you or in the room so you could avoid this type of situation? With one of the wireless speakers on our list, you can tell your friends to leave their guitars and tambourines in the car.

Take these wireless speakers anywhere

A day at the beach, a party in the park, going on a hike or bike ride, or just sitting in the backyard. These powerful wireless speakers are great for on-the-go music.

Speaqua Cruiser Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

If you love going to the beach, the Speaqua Cruiser Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is the wireless speaker you need. These speakers can handle dust and sand, so you won’t need to worry about that annoying kid running by and throwing sand up all over your pristine blanket and ruining your investment. These wireless speakers are only 2.4 inches in diameter, have 5 hours of playtime in them, and your Cruiser speakers can recognize each other and pair together. Surround sound at the beach, anyone?

Braven BRV-360 Rugged Wireless Speaker

Earbuds can be annoying to wear if you haven’t found the perfect comfortable ones for you. (Pssst, if you’re looking for some, may we suggest something on this list?) If you’re on a bike ride and don’t want to mess with earbuds, the Braven BRV-360 Rugged Wireless Speaker is your solution. These wireless speakers are roughly the size of a travel mug, allowing you to put this speaker right in your cupholder. How’s that for convenience and mobility? They have 12 hours of battery life, so you’re good to go on that marathon bike ride if you need to rock out to your jams to keep you motivated. It’s also waterproof, so if you get stuck in the rain with it, you’re all good. If you want to take it to the beach, you’ll have a 100-foot range of sound, and it can withstand falling in the lake—it’ll float to the top.

Vifa City Wireless Loudspeaker

Want tunes on the go but don’t want to worry about losing your speaker or leaving it behind? You can hook the Vifa City Wireless Loudspeaker on your belt loop, purse strap, backpack…you get the picture. It’s super portable at only 105 millimeters in diameter, and you can also connect it to other City speakers to get even more sound. And with their bright colors to fit every personality, they’re a statement piece for the mobile DJ.

Have a concert in your house

Wireless isn’t only convenient for taking your music on the go. Sometimes, you just don’t want wires sticking out everywhere and ruining your feng shui. Or, you’d like to be able to move your speaker to a different room. Whatever your preference, these wireless speakers are great for home sound.

Linn Series 3 Room-Filling Wireless Speaker

Some wireless speakers just don’t have the oomph you need to fill the room with sound. Especially if you have a lot of people over. With the Linn Series 3 Room-Filling Wireless Speaker, you won’t need to worry about that. You’ll be able to drown out even the loudest talker or that lady with the annoying laugh with the company’s Exact technology. While the piece may look like a futuristic egg, it was designed to look like the top of a wineglass. (But please don’t set your wineglass on it, or put wine in the speaker. Any warranty probably won’t cover that.) You can stream to it over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay, and more.

Bowers & Wilkins Formation Wedge Angled Speaker

If you’re looking for powerful wireless speakers that will also be a statement piece in your home, these are what you want. The Bowers & Wilkins Formation Wedge Angled Speaker is beautiful. Oh, and it sounds really good. These speakers will fill the room with sound while looking like a piece of art. You won’t need to worry about trying to hide your speaker; you’ll want this one on display. It’s compatible with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Spotify, Apple Airplay 2, and Roon. It’s also compatible with any room.

Bose SoundTouch 30 Powerful Wireless Speaker

Ah, those dreaded words from many Bluetooth devices—connection dropped. Everyone hates to hear that. Eliminate that issue with the Bose SoundTouch 30 Powerful Wireless Speaker. These speakers stream from the cloud, your device, Wi-Fi, and music-specific apps. Because it streams from Wi-Fi, you won’t need to worry about making sure your phone is near the speaker. You can move around the whole house and host with ease and keep up on any messages you get from guests on the way over. With built-in waveguide and high-performance drivers, your guests will be impressed with the sound.

Watch movies like never before

If you’re a movie buff, you probably want a killer set-up in your living room, basement, or home theater for getting movie-theater sound. Or maybe your kid just likes to blast “Baby Shark.” These Klipsch options will have your hair blowing back from a brand you know you can trust for great sound.

Klipsch RW-34C Wireless Center Channel Entertainment Speaker

So. Many. Cords. At least, that’s what most entertainment centers look like. Many of us want more sound than what the TV can deliver, but adding speakers only adds more cords to the endless nest of them. Say goodbye to that with the Klipsch RW-34C Wireless Center Channel Entertainment Speaker. Along with no cords to worry about placing or drilling holes for, you won’t need to worry about where to place the speaker itself. It’s only about 6 inches deep, so it’ll fit almost anywhere. And, it won’t matter where an outlet is. You’ll have theater-quality sound from anywhere in the room. It has a built-in transmitter that connects to your computer, Xbox, or TV.

Klipsch RW-100SW Wireless Subwoofer Low-Frequency Speaker

Do you need more than just a soundbar? Do you need to feel the bass pounding through your body? The Klipsch RW-100SW Wireless Subwoofer Low-Frequency Speaker is the addition to your Klipsch soundbar you’ll want. It’s built with the well-known spun-copper IMG woofers and delivers impressive sound even though it’s only 10 inches. And, if you have a WiSa-compatible television, you can connect this wireless subwoofer to it too. For those who watch TV in bed from their laptop? It even connects to your Mac or Windows 10 computer.

Get even more out of your wireless speaker

Why have Alexa and a wireless speaker when you can have both in one gadget? For those who need to save a little space, or just like to have electronics that combine multiple functions, look no further.

Cavalier Audio Air Wireless Alexa Speaker System

A wireless speaker and Alexa in one. Don’t tap around on your phone finding songs; just tell Alexa what to play from the Cavalier Audio Air Wireless Alexa Speaker System. This wireless speaker even has wireless charging, so you can charge and listen to music at the same time. It has a 20W stereo speaker system, so you’ll have great sound, and you can connect to it via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. And for even more function, it features two USB ports so you can charge your devices off of it. How’s that for multi-use?

We’ve given you a lot to think about for your next outing or party. And you’re probably excited that you’ll be able to tell George to leave his harmonica at home the next time he comes over, thanks to your new wireless speakers. Where do you plan on listening to them?
