From camping trips to backyard cookouts, summer brings friends and families together — in many cases, it brings them together outdoors. A new generation of wireless speakers can bring summer pool parties or family vacations to life, no matter where the fun takes place. As their popularity soars, however, so does the number of different wireless speakers flooding the market.
The data analysts at SpecOut, a consumer tech research site powered by Graphiq, narrowed down the overwhelming options to a list of the 10 best wireless speakers. The list consists only of portable speakers – not multi-room – that weigh less than five pounds. To be considered, all speakers need Bluetooth wireless capabilities and a rechargeable battery. The list is ranked in descending order according to their Smart Rating – a weighted average combining expert reviews, features and connectivity and sound quality considerations.
