Most people like the concept of a super compact portable miniIt weighs a few ounces and travels well. But if you’re looking for a loud sound with a thumping bass, you’ll want to look at one of the jumbo models, sometimes known as wireless boomboxes, although they don’t always look like retro boomboxes.
The speakers on the list weigh at least p pounds (2.k kg) and weigh a lot more than some. They all have built-in handles (or straps) for transportation and powerful high-end models require a heavy AC adapter – not just a standard USB phone charger and cable – for charging. They are designed to play long at medium volume levels on the go. But if you want to go louder, the battery life drops to three to five hours.
They are designed for everything from tailgating to camping trips to bridges and beach parties, they are all well nourished mostly provide a good degree of water resistance (many are completely waterproof). I’ve personally heard all of this (or, in the case of Soundcore TransGo, its almost identical siblings).

Anchor’s डलर 100 Soundcore Motion Boom is a mini boombox speaker. This is a kind of poor person who is respected by JBL Xtreme 2 speaker, Which currently sells for around 200 while its list price is high. Equipped with a handle and weighing less than 4 pounds, the speaker reminds me of one of them. Huge flashlights Or “floating lanterns” that were in operation about 10 years ago. For the record, the Motion Boom actually floats and it is completely waterproof with an IPX rating.
Anchor says the Motion Boom delivers “huge stereo sound” and yes, it runs quite large and has a decent amount of bass with practical clarity. (I promoted the bass because the speaker speaks better with the bass boost.) It can’t compete with larger and more expensive speakers. Boombox 2 of JBL ($ 400) and The ultimate ear ‘hyperboom ($) 00), but it packs a lot more volume and punch than a more compact Bluetooth speaker like the JBL Flip Like which costs the same. It also travels well, so it’s ideal for a beach trip or a short tailgating. It can also be used as a backup battery to charge phones and other USB powered devices.
If you want something in half size with a more sophisticated sound, check it out Anchor Soundcore Motion Boom Plus.

JBL’s second generation Boombox 2 doesn’t look more real than real. And on the outside, JBL didn’t make much of a difference. But this new energy is more energy-efficient with Bluetooth.1.1 chipset. Also, the speaker weighs a pound and a half more, which means that the added weight went to other components in addition to the battery that have the same capacity.
The big difference in sound between the Boombox 2 – which is completely waterproof (IPX7) – and the original bass. It goes deeper and has more punches in it. While the power rating for the Boombox 2 is a bit high, the volume above it is the same as the original. It looks fuller and more dynamic in its top volume and has no indoor or outdoor mode like the original. You can wirelessly link to the latest JBL Bluetooth speaker, but sadly, you can’t link to the original Boombox.
Like the UE Hyperboom (see below), it has a USB out port that allows you to charge external devices like your phone and also has an analog audio input if you want to be wired and connect a device without using Bluetooth (the Hyperboom has a Adds optical digital input).
For outdoor use, I like the design of the Boombox 2 better than the UE Hyperboom. It’s easy to carry around and looks like an external speaker. As long as they both play loud and deliver ample bass, the Hyperboom looks more natural and has a great sound stage with excellent overall clarity and sweet sound.
UE Hyperboom has a few things in it for Boombox 2. Price for beginners: It is ० 00 while Boombox is $ 200.
As an outdoor speaker, I bone the design of the JBL. They both weigh 13 pounds, but are a bit more natural to carry around JBL. It has a handle, tubular design, it looks like it is externally related. The Hyperboom gets a thick rubber strap and feels like you’re actually carrying a big pitcher of solid stuff. It is bucky and underlined. And it looks a little more inside the house.
The Hyperboom is splashproof with an IPX rating, while the Boombox 2 is completely waterproof with an IPX rating. (I put them in the rain and survived without both of those issues.) Like the Boombox 2, it has a USB out port that allows you to charge devices like your phone and has analog audio input if you want to be wired and connected. A device without using Bluetooth. However, Hyperboom adds an optical digital input. This means you can connect it to an optical output with a TV, PC or game console. You can also toggle between two Bluetooth connections and it has a built-in microphone that calibrates the speaker’s sound inside, out or anywhere.
The Hyperboom is also a great overall sound speaker. It has a wide range of sounds with a little more bass and clarity. It also looks a little more natural.
If you can handle it, you can link two hyperbombs and create a stereo pair. You can link it wirelessly to the latest UE Bluetooth speakers to spread the sound over a wide area.

If you don’t want to get anything as big as the JBL Boombox 2, the Extreme weighs a good deal less but still gets bigger with the Bluetooth speaker parameters and makes a lot of noise (though not as much as the Boombox. 2). Instead of a built-in handle, a detachable shoulder strap is included.
JBL’s small Bluetooth speakers like the Xtreme 3 can be placed vertically or horizontally. At first glance it doesn’t look much different than the Extreme 2 (it’s a big kid), but it does have a slightly better sound and upgrade sound while actually weighing less. Here are the main differences between the two speakers according to JBL:
- Slightly louder: The rated output power of Xtreme 3 is 2 x 25W vs Xtreme 2 is 2 x 20W
- Xtreme 3 is IPX67 (waterproof / dustproof) vs. Xtreme 2 is IPX7 (waterproof)
- The Xtreme 3 offers JBL PartyBoost while the Xtreme 2 offers JBL Connect + Sync technology.
- Xtreme 3 charge time only 2. Improves in 2.5 hours, 3.5. Xtreme 2 from 3.5 hours (both have 1 battery hour battery life)
- Xtreme 3 has Bluetooth 1.1 vs. Bluetooth 2.2 on Xtreme 2
- The Xtreme 3 is slightly larger but weighs less than the Xtreme 2 (4..3 lbs vs. .3..3 lbs)
Last year I reviewed Anchor Soundcore Rev. Neo Party speaker and gave high marks. Trans Go is essentially a speaker that allows you to create mini light shows without integrated LEDs. It costs about डलर 100 in comparison, plays loud for its size (it’s a medium-sized speaker that weighs p pounds) and has a built-in handle that makes it easy to tumble around. The speaker is completely waterproof and can take up to 2 hours on medium level (USB out port allows you to charge the device). Also, worth noting: for anyone who wants more extended sound, you can link to multiple trans-go speakers.
The Sony GTKXB90 weighs a whopping 300..9 pounds (1k kg), which means you’ll get a workout if you have to keep it at an extended distance (of course you’re really strong). I’ve only heard of it in Democracy and haven’t fully tested it, but it definitely packs plenty and is equipped with LEDs for the lighting program. Battery life at medium battery level is rated at 1 hour. If you cracked it will look a little. It is also worth noting that if you want to play MC you can plug in a microphone.
Step down GTK-XB60 Not exactly powerful, has a slightly shorter battery life and also costs no less. The GTKXB900 lists for 450, but sometimes sells for less.
