Bluetooth speakers have been here for a while and chances are – you already have used them as well. Bluetooth powered speakers allow us to conveniently listen to music without the need for wires. These pair up with our mobile devices wirelessly and we can control the playback directly with just a few taps.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of Bluetooth speakers is portability. You can carry your speaker inside your backpack and use it outdoors as well. They also consume low power which makes them ideal for such use. Some Bluetooth speakers are also waterproof and water-resistant, which allows us to take them to the beach or swimming pool for an awesome music jamming session.
In today’s post, we will look at tiny pocket-sized Bluetooth speakers that you can carry around without much trouble. So let’s get started with our list of Top 10 Portable Bluetooth Speakers. In the next part of this post, we discussed the Best Medium-Sized Bluetooth Speakers under Rs3000. Check that out if you are interested in speakers with louder sound and bigger bass.
The 10.or Rave is a 3W speaker that gives you loud, distortion-free sound with extra bass with its DSP Technology and Passive Radiators. It has got a 2200 mAh battery which gives you playback of around 10 hours. The speakers are Bluetooth 5.0 certified which makes up for faster pairing, longer range, and battery life. It is also IPX5 water-resistant, but make sure you don’t drop it inside your swimming pool. Check it out below.
