Best Bluetooth Speakers India 2019 in the Budget segment

Best Bluetooth Speakers India

If you want a quick and easy way to play music around your home or on the go, then nothing beats the convenience of a Bluetooth speaker. Simply charge it up, pair it to your phone, and you’ll be able to play your entire music collection wherever you choose. 

While the latest set of audio cans can do amazing things, they previously offered a weak and tinny sound. Improvements in Bluetooth technology meant that they’re able to offer a very capable audio experience in their own right. And, better yet, battery capacities have improved such that you can use a Bluetooth speaker for several days on the trot without needing to recharge it. 

But all of them are well worth a place in your tech arsenal, and with that in mind, here’s the list of our top picks for the best Bluetooth speakers India. Some are rugged, some are stylish, some are weatherproof and some aren’t fit for the outdoors – read through and take your pick. 

Best Bluetooth Speakers India – 1. UE Boom 3

The UE Boom 3 is the latest addition to this list and it stays on top, just like its predecessor. While the UE Boom 2 was a bigger upgrade, the UE Boom 3, despite being a minor upgrade, is still is the best Bluetooth speaker money can buy. It offers the same thumping and loud audio without distortion at high volumes; is light enough to carry on a camping trip, but remains durable enough to tumble in a bag unprotected. 

There are certainly more detailed speakers out there (see: Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin down below), but at a price that’s relatively affordable to all, the UE Boom 3 hits all the right notes for the third year in a row.

  • Weight: 544g
  • Battery life: 15 hours
  • Wireless range: 30+ feet
  • Frequency response: 90Hz-20kHz
  • Drivers: Two 1.75″ drivers and two 1.75″ x 3″ passive radiators
  • NFC: Yes
  • Aux-in: Yes USB charging: Yes

Best Bluetooth Speakers India – 2. Bose SoundLink Revolve

The Bose SoundLink Revolve is an excellent sound speaker for folks looking for true 360-degree sound. It’s great for sharing music during a party or for moving around the room without losing audio fidelity. However, the Bose SoundLink Mini II sounds slightly better and is slightly cheaper to boot. 

On the debit side, it’s also not fully dust or waterproof so you’ll want to think twice before bringing the Revolve to the beach. 

For half the price, the Wonderboom is a great speaker that is completely dust and waterproof and while it can’t match the audio fidelity or features of the Bose, it’s still great for on-the-go listening. If the bass is your game, the JBL Charge 3 is an excellent fully waterproof speaker that sounds great but is big and heavy along with it.

Specification:-

  • Weight: 1.5 pounds
  • Battery life: Up to 12 hours
  • Wireless range: 30 feet
  • Frequency response: N/A
  • NFC: No
  • Aux-in: Yes
  • USB charging: Yes

Specification:-

  • Weight: 798g
  • Battery life: 20 hours

Best Bluetooth Speakers India – 4. Bose SoundLink Mini II

The Bose SoundLink Mini II is relatively ancient, having been released in June 2015. However, writing off the SoundLink Mini II because of its age would be a mistake, as it remains one of the best sounding wireless speakers. 

It punches way above what its size would suggest, producing deep bass, sparkling highs, and a lush midrange. While most wireless speakers sound OK, the Mini II proves that small speakers don’t need to compromise on sound.

Specification:-

  • Weight: 667g
  • Dimensions: 2 x 7.1 x 2.3 inches (H x W x D)
  • Battery life: Up to 10 hours
  • Wireless range: 30 ft (10 m)
  • Frequency response: N/A
  • Drivers: N/A
  • NFC: No
  • Bluetooth version: N/A
  • Aux-in: Yes
  • USB charging: No

Best Bluetooth Speakers India – 5. Anker Soundcore Flare

Anker has a history of making excellent budget wireless speakers. While we weren’t entirely impressed with the Anker SoundCore 2’s sound, we couldn’t be too mad since the speaker was so affordable. 

So what happens if you can stretch your budget? For just around Rs 1500 more you get the Anker Soundcore Flare, an excellent waterproof Bluetooth speaker that can stand toe-to-toe with the competition. 

The Soundcore Flare is an amazing value in the sub-10k wireless speaker segment. Competitors like the UE Wonderboom (listed below) give the Flare a run for its money in terms of build quality, but we give the Flare the slight edge with sound quality. We recommend the Flare for anyone looking for a wireless speaker that can do it all without breaking the bank. 

Specifiction:-

  • Weight: 18.7 ounces
  • Battery life: 12 hours
  • Wireless range: 20m / 66ft
  • Frequency response: N/A
  • Drivers: 2 x 1.75″ Full Range + 2 x Passive Radiator
  • NFC: No
  • Aux-in: Yes
  • Bluetooth version: 4.2
  • Weatherproofing: Yes-IPX7
  • Charges devices over USB: No
