OontZ Curve from The Best Bluetooth Speakers
The Best Bluetooth Speakers
The smallest speaker on our list packs mindblowing quality and volume for it’s size. At just $30 online, the Curve easily outperformed our expectations. The huge range of volume makes this speaker ideal for everything from listening to light music at your desk to pumping up a small party. At this price point you simply won’t find a better bluetooth speaker.
The Angle is another option from the OontZ family, a little bit bigger than the Curve but the value is just as good. Currently the top seller on Amazon, the Angle features a different design and longer battery life than the Curve. There is no noticeable difference in sound quality from the Curve, so it comes down to a matter of preference.
The biggest speaker on our list is still small enough to fit on the handlebars of your bike—in fact, that was the original purpose of the Cruiser. While this speaker certainly excels on the road, it performs even better off the bike. The maximum volume is beyond impressive, as it was made for competing with outdoor sounds, but on loud streets the sounds of traffic could overpower any speaker. In less congested areas, the speaker works well on the bike. Overall, this speaker packs plenty of volume, exquisite sound quality and intelligent design. It’s not waterproof or shock resistant, but it is just $80. The Cruiser earns our highest recommendation.
The BRV-1 is an award-winning Bluetooth speaker and after testing, it’s not hard to see why. This little powerhouse produces some amazing sound in a tiny, durable package—and it even has the ability to charge other devices from it’s internal powerbank. Both waterproof and shock resistant, the BRV-1 features 12 hours of music playback on a single charge. Ready for any adventure, this speaker is one you won’t want to leave home without.
