1. Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle 3 Next Generation Ultra Portable

Cambridge may not be one of the more well known commercial brands, but these guys don’t mess around when it comes to their audio products. For the size, versatility, and big value this one had to be included. Need a rugged splash-proof option for the beach then this is a no-brainer. Amazon is blowing these out at dirt cheap prices (click link above to see.) With over 23K positive Amazon reviews folks are on to this little secret.  Read our full OONTZ Angle 3 review.

2. Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Super Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

I can’t say enough about Ultimate Ears (UE). Each and every model would be worthy of inclusion in just about every “best of” list.  We picked this one because not only is it fully waterproof and super rugged, but the damn things sounds freaking fantastic –as do most all of their speakers. I give full blessings to all UE speakers and this is just superb in every way.  I’ve seen these dropped from 25 plus feet and still work fine!

2.Libratone TOO Splash-Proof Bluetooth Speaker

Libratone has made a serious name for themselves in short time.  These guys don’t mess around when it comes to beautiful sound, and while our favorite is the Zipp models (more $$), this one could not be ignored.  Superb design, and sound sound sound! Libratone really gets it!  If you’re able to spend a bit more, the Libratone Zipp is one of our favorites of all time and on our Best wireless speakers of 2017 list here.  But this smaller version carries many of the same sweat sounding characteristics. Easily one of Best Portable Bluetooth Speakers under $100!

3.Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker

Bose hit it out of the park with this one.  It looks fairly plain, but this it’s a really rugged speaker with deep rich sound and the biggest sounding of the bunch.  Admittedly this one is a tad over $100, but I have seen some of the odd colors at the $99 mark –check which I’ve seen from time to time on Amazon.  It’s worth the few extra bucks given the big step up in sound.  I can’t think of anything better at the price.  Bose also has tons of great accessories and cases.

4. JBL Flip 3 Splashproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker

JBL has been doing this for a long time, so they know a thing or two about sound.  This speaker delivers big sound at a great value.  For those bass heads out there, for the size, this one packs maximum punch at the price.  For those that want something that can thump, this delivers as much a kick in the ass that anything can do at this size and price.

5.Sony XB10 Portable Wireless Speaker with Bluetooth

Sony was the great innovator and leader in the 80’s and I’m glad to see some of that old glory slowly coming back.  This super compact guy is just a great cute design with the ability to pair which is normally a more expensive option.  Rugged, awesome battery life, stereo pairing mode –these had to make the list (I’d get two if you can!).  This one easily makes the Best Portable Bluetooth Speakers under $100 list – Welcome back Sony!
