Whether you're looking for ruggedness or long-lasting battery life, these waterproof speakers boast a range of features that will meet just about any requirement. Be ready for your next beach day with one of these versatile sets.
Bose SoundLink Micro
Bose's reputation for sound quality speaks for itself, and this little device is no different. The SoundLink Micro speaker may be small enough to comfortably clip onto your backpack, but that doesn't make the sound any less strong. Also good: It's compatible with Siri or Alexa, and boasts a six-hour battery life.
Polk BOOM Swimmer Duo
Speaking of small packages, this one from Polk Audio is ready for anything. Wrap the flexible tail around handle bars or a beach umbrella and let the tunes flow. It can also be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, and linked with a second one for a stereo experience.
Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM
The Ultimate Ears Megaboom blasts a wide sonic range in crisp 360-degree sound. It also claims an impressively long battery life (up to 20 hours) and 100-foot Bluetooth range. There's even an associated app that allows you to tweak equalizer settings to your preference.

Altec Lansing LifeJacket 2
Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM
The Wonderboom packs a ton of sound into its small, round package. At full volume, it's only a few decibels lower than its Megaboom cousin. This smaller option offers added portability, but still boasts a 10-hour battery life and can be paired with a second unit for even bigger sound.
Though expensive, the Dermerbox may be the last portable Bluetooth speaker you ever need. Encased in a military-grade Pelican case that floats and allows for waterproof storage, the design takes ruggedness to new heights. It can also charge your other devices in a pinch, but don't worry about that cutting into your listening time—the battery lasts a whopping 50 hours.
