Water Resistance

Speakers range from not being able to handle even a drop of water to being able to be fully submerged in water for several minutes. Do you plan to take your speaker outside? To the beach? To the pool? In the shower? Then you definitely need to verify the level of water resistance before purchasing. You can tell the water resistance by the IP rating—the higher the rating, the more resistant the speaker is to the elements. For reference, the first digit refers to dust protection and the second digit refers to water protection. It reads as: IP68. Anything higher than IP66 will be dust- and splash-proof, meaning it can handle some contact with water, but cannot be fully submerged or soaked.

Battery

Battery life for Bluetooth speakers is measured in milliampere hours (mAh). Manufacturers will report the battery life of a speaker in the average number of hours it takes to empty from a full charge. Keep in mind this number is based on medium levels of usage. If you play the speaker on full volume, it will drain the battery faster. Some specialty features like using the speaker to charge your phone or casting an LED light show will also drain the battery faster. The manufacturer reported number is just an estimate, and may be slightly different based on your usage.

It’s also important to consider is the type of battery. Rechargeable lithium-ion (LI-ion) batters are ideal, but some speakers only take standard or rechargeable AA/AAA/C/D batteries. You may even find Bluetooth speakers that recharge via solar power—great for outdoor use!

What is the best Bluetooth speaker Bose Soundlink Revole, UE Boom 2 or a Fugoo Sport. I want a good Bluetooth speaker and these are the three that come up the most on most reviews.
Related: UE Boom, Bose SoundLink Revolve, Portable Bluetooth Speakers | Submitted by anonymous 171 days ago
A:

They all have their pros, and cons, so it ultimately boils down to what is right for you, and your needs.

The UE Boom is a great choice if you want a bluetooth speaker with an exceptional battery life (up to 15 hours). It features two 1.5 inch full range drivers, has a power output of 3 watts, and is IPX4 splash proof. This is not a speaker if you seek to go to loud volumes, as it only offers a 3 watt output, but definitely a great speaker if you want a relaxing volume level, and a quality durable build.


You will find the Bose SoundLink Revolve is IPX4 water resistant (splash proof), has a durable design, a 12 hour battery life, and dual passive radiators. This speaker can reach louder volumes and is a nice choice if you want something that's built to last The exact watt output is unknown because bose tend to never list the watt output (and thus they cannot be exactly compared), but it's a safe bet it will not disappoint in terms of volume and clarity, as this is what the brand is known for.

The Fugoo Go Anywhere Speaker (Fugoo Sport) is very affordable in comparison. It has an IP67 water resistant rating (meaning that it can be submerged). a 12 watt output, a 10 hour battery life (40 hours at half volume), and dual-full range drivers, along with dual bass radiators. This is an ideal choice if you wish to save some money, but still want a decent power output. It’s compact, easy to carry around, and reaches about 95 decibels. However, note that at high volumes the Fugoo speaker tends to distort the sound and will not sound as clear.
