Best deal overall


Our pick: JBL FLIP 5
$79.99
at Amazon

$129.95
Save $49.96



Why we like it

The JBL FLIP 5 isn’t your average portable speaker. This baby can provide up to 12 hours of playtime on a single charge and produces seriously impressive sound quality. (You know, that signature JBL bass.) It has a rugged, waterproof design, so you can take it anywhere without worrying about a little water or sand. And with a 38% discount, it’s a steal at $79.99.

It’s available in multiple fun color finishes, including pink and black camouflage, but different colors may have slightly different pricing.

Best runner-up deal


Our pick: Sony SRS-XB23
$89.70
at Amazon

$129.99
Save $40.29



Why we like it

The Sony SRS-XB23 doesn’t come in fun colors like its JBL counterpart, but it makes up for it with top-notch audio performance, a durable build, and a powerful battery that can keep the tunes flowing for up to 12 hours. With the Extra Bass setting, it can last up to 10 hours.

It’s also rated IP67 waterproof and dustproof, so it can handle a day at the beach or pool. (I have the Sony XG300 and use it exclusively at the beach, and it’s been super reliable. I’ve had it for at least three years now.)

Best budget deal


Our pick: JBL Clip 4
$49.95
at Amazon

$79.95
Save $30.00



Why we like it

The JBL Clip 4 is a miniature portable speaker that packs a punch. At just $49.95, this tiny but mighty clip-on speaker delivers crisp, room-filling sound with 10 hours of battery life. Thanks to the little clip, you can attach it to your backpack, belt, or bike handlebars for hands-free sound on the go.

It’s also IP167 waterproof and dustproof, so you can use it anywhere (even in the shower!) without worrying about damage.
