The SOUNDBOKS was designed specifically for party animals on the go. If you’re after some serious power, look no further than the SOUNDBOKS 2. SOUNDBOKS claims this Bluetooth speaker can get as loud as 122dB! To put that into perspective, 120dB is the average volume for the front row of a rock concert.
The SOUNDBOKS 2 is a badass looking speaker. The outer casing comprises of Baltic birch plywood and steel. This is designed to protect the SOUNDBOKS 2 from any bumps, bangs, and bruises while out on the road.
At 33 lbs, the SOUNDBOKS 2 isn’t exactly lightweight, however, it’s still light enough to be considered portable. There are handles on either side for a couple of mates to carry the SOUNDBOKS 2 and, the speaker comes with an optional backpack harness.
One of the most impressive features of the SOUNDBOK 2 is the 40-hour battery life. The battery packs are removable so, you can purchase multiple batteries to keep the party going longer. A great feature for those going away outdoors, to a music festival or just heading out into the wilderness to start your own party.
Even with the SOUNDBOKS 2 turned up to full volume, the battery will last 8 hours. That’s really impressive!
With the SOUNDBOKS 2 you have two input options ⅛-inch AUX and Bluetooth. Next to the AUX input are two rotary knobs. The first is a simple volume control which goes to 11. The second adjusts the audio depending on your surrounding environment including indoor, outdoor and power off. Indoor mode adjusts bass performance and optimizes the sound for playing music inside. This mode also conserves battery. Outdoor mode allows the SOUNDBOKS 2 to operate at higher volumes and optimizes the bass performance for the outdoors but also places more demand on battery life.
While the SOUNDBOKS 2 is an absolute beast when it comes to playing loud music, the speaker retails for $899 which may be outside of many people’s budget. Is the SOUNDBOKS 2 worth the price tag? Absolutely! The speaker is seriously loud while also delivering exceptional sound quality.
7.5″ x 11.7″ x 19.4″

The bass is rich and warm with an accurate low-end definition you won’t hear on any other Bluetooth speaker under $1,000. The mid-range is upfront with life-like clarity and detail.

7.1″ x 7.1″ x 13.5″
Anker’s latest Bluetooth speaker is the Anker Soundcore Rave Mini. This is easily one of Anker’s best speakers to date packed full of features you’d usually find in speakers double or triple the price.
The Soundcore Rave Mini stands just 17-inches high and weighs 7 lbs but produces an impressive 80W of sound. Although slightly larger than most portable Bluetooth speakers, the Soundcore Rave Mini is still relatively lightweight with a handle for easy carrying.
Like most party speakers, the Soundcore Rave Mini comes with LED lights and 6 modes suited to various genres of music. There is a button to control the LED lights on the speaker or, you can connect the Soundcore App for more control. Through the app, you can also change EQ presets and other audio settings.

This will protect your speaker to a depth of 1m for up to 30 minutes. The speaker enclosure is also very durable and should survive the odd bump, scratch or drop.
Audio inputs include ⅛-inch AUX, USB, and Bluetooth (version 5.0). There is a 10-button control panel on top of the speaker giving you full access to controlling your music without touching your phone. There is even a BassUp button to give you a little bass boost when you’re going into full party mode.
The Soundcore Rave Mini is one of Anker’s best sounding speakers to date. The bass is nice and chunky albeit a little looser than premium speakers. Mid-range and treble is on average with medium priced Bluetooth speakers.
If you’re looking for a budget party speaker, the Soundcore Rave Mini is definitely one to check out. It’s still going to run you about $150 but when you compare this to the JBL or Awia and consider the ton of features you get, the Soundcore Rave Mini is well worth the price.

6. VAVA VOOM 22
6.0″ x 4.4″ x 9.9″
For many, this will be your first introduction to VAVA speakers. The company produces some awesome audio products cool aesthetics with decent sound quality at an affordable price. The VAVA VOOM 22 stands 9 inches high and weighs just 10lbs. While the speaker is small and portable, I think it’s just too beautiful to take on the go. It’s a great portable Bluetooth speaker for using around the house but definitely doesn’t have the same durable features you find on the JBL Xtreme or AOMAIS GO.
Sound features design
The VOOM 22 features a 3½-inch woofer with a ¾-inch tweeter producing a total of 60W of sound! That’s more than most soundbars on the market at the moment.

At 120W, you’ll have a seriously loud Bluetooth speaker system.

JBL is a firm favorite in the portable speaker market with a product for just about every application. The JBL Xtreme Portable Bluetooth Speaker was released a few years ago but continues to sell really well. At 8 inches long and weighing just 4.65 lbs, the Xtreme is portable enough to throw in a large backpack to take on any adventures. There are also two hooks which allow you to attach a shoulder strap for music on-the-go. The speaker is splashproof offering some defense from the odd pool party.
The Xtreme features 2 x 2 ½-inch full-range drivers coupled to a bass radiator either end delivering up to 40W of sound. As to be expected from JBL, the Xtreme is rock solid when it comes to sound quality. The speaker is surprisingly warm and bassy for such a small speaker with a clear and upfront mid-range. The highs are crisp giving the Xtreme a fun sound profile. The Xtreme is easily one of the loudest portable Bluetooth speakers on the market today.
The Xtreme offers a ⅛-inch AUX input and Bluetooth version 4.1 for wireless connectivity. There is a 6-button control panel on top of the Xtreme allowing you some control over your audio. One of these 6 buttons is for JBL connect which enables you to connect multiple JBL speakers.
If you’re a JBL fan, then you’ll love the Xtreme. The speaker offers premium features and the incredible JBL sound we know and love. The Xtreme is currently available on Amazon for a little over $160, that’s 50% cheaper than its original price of $299! If you’re looking for a Bluetooth speaker for use at home, around the pool and perhaps even on the odd trip, then the Xtreme will be an excellent choice.
3.3″ x 3.3″ x 8.9″
When it comes to portable Bluetooth speakers, Ultimate Ears is almost always in the top five at least. The UE MEGABOOM is similar in size and weight to the JBL Xtreme. Where the MEGABOOM has an edge over the Xtreme is with its IPX7 waterproof rating. The Xtreme is merely splashproof. Furthermore, the MEGABOOM offers a 20-hour battery life versus the Xtreme’s 15 hours.
The MEGABOOM features 2 x 2” full-range drivers paired with 2 x 2” passive bass radiators for improved low-end performance. The speakers are located on opposite sides which allows the MEGABOOM to deliver 360° of sound. The MEGABOOM is seriously loud, easily one of the loudest waterproof Bluetooth speakers around.

9.1″ x 4.1″ x 3.5″
If you’re looking for the loudest Bluetooth speaker under 100 dollars, then look no further than the RIVA TURBO X. This awesome speaker offers beautiful styling and aesthetics with exceptional sound. There really isn’t a speaker that comes close at this price point.
The TURBO X features 3 x 2.3” full-range speaker drivers coupled to four passive bass radiators. The speaker kicks out an impressive 45W which is crazy given the TURBO X’s compact size. The bass is big and punchy while the mids offer good clarity. The treble is surprisingly detailed for a speaker this size. Overall, the TURBO X is a fun Bluetooth speaker to listen to, especially for urban and dance music genres.
The TURBO X offers Bluetooth for wireless and ⅛-inch AUX for cable inputs. There is a USB port but this is for charging mobile devices off the 26-hour built-in battery. The TURBO X has an adjustable EQ and even offers a PHONO MODE for when you connect a turntable via the ⅛-inch AUX input.
Riva Audio is relatively new to the market but have already released several incredible Bluetooth speakers. Their focus is on a premium build and sound which they have successfully achieved with the TURBO X.
6.6″ x 2.9″ x 2.7″
If you’re looking for the loudest bluetooth speaker at the most affordable price, then it has to be the DOSS Touch Bluetooth Speaker. At under $30, there isn’t a better portable Bluetooth speaker on the market. This incredible speaker offers many of the features you’ll find in premium models like 12-hour built-in battery and speakerphone.
The DOSS Touch delivers just 12W of sound, however, it’s surprisingly loud for its size. You can easily fill a small room which is great for dorms, home offices, the bedroom or kitchen.
The speaker gets its name from the 5-button capacitive touch control panel which includes play/pause/call management, skip left and right, volume control, and input selection. Inputs include micro SD, ⅛-inch AUX, and Bluetooth.
If you’re looking for a cheap Bluetooth speaker that still has a premium sound and finish, then the DOSS Touch is one to consider. The Touch comes in at the same price point as the Anker Soundcore and both speakers have a similar sound profile. The Touch is slightly louder while the Anker Soundcore offers better durability.
6.5″ x 2.2″ x 1.8″
A longtime favorite at the budget end of Bluetooth speakers is the Anker Soundcore 2 Bluetooth Speaker. The Anker Soundcore 2 features a 24-hour built-in battery and speakerphone which competes with many of the premium speakers on this list.
The Anker Soundcore 2 delivers a total of 12W of power from two compact 6W speaker drivers. While this might not be as loud as many of the speakers on our list, it’s still impressive for a speaker of this size and price point. The Soundcore 2 delivers a decent amount of low-end, however, I wouldn’t call it a bass speaker by any means. The mid-range and treble response is good, surprisingly good for the price. There isn’t much break-up and distortion on the Soundcore 2, which is impressive for this little speaker.
You have the option of cable or wireless with a ⅛-inch input and Bluetooth version 5.0. On top of the Soundcore 2 is a 5-button control for power, play/pause, volume up & down, and Bluetooth pairing.
If you’re not too concerned with audio quality and are simply looking for a budget Bluetooth speaker which can still pump some volume, then there is nothing that beats the Anker Soundcore 2.
