From their popular Xtreme series to their handy clip-on models, here are the best portable speaker deals to shop this week — just in time for your next trip or dinner party.
JBL Charge 4 (23% Off)
JBL has long been the go-to speaker for bluetooth capabilities, and the newest edition to its Charge series is their best one yet. The new model is packed with all the best features from the Charge 3, such as bluetooth connectivity up to 30 feet, convenient playback controls and a durable waterproof exterior. One of the biggest upgrades is the introduction to JBL Connect, which allows users to sync up a few speakers at the same time to play the same song, working like — albeit to a lesser degree — a Sonos system. Plus, with more than 20 hours of playback, you can carry it around on trips or hikes with no fear of a mid-day crash.
JBL Clip 4 (38% Off)
The best micro bluetooth speaker on the market came back even better with the fourth-generation model that came out last year. They bulked up the speaker for the Clip 4, which boasts a powerful bass and well-balanced audio (particularly for acoustic music tracks, as reviewers have noted, thanks to a strong mid-range). Aside from performance, the Clip improved upon its already compact, portable design in the new iteration: its durable integrated carabiner clip keeps the speaker secure if you’re towing it along for intensive activities like hikes or runs, and a slightly larger body allows for impressively loud audio for its size.
JBL Xtreme 2 (50% Off)
If you’re looking for ultra-portability, then the Clip is your best bet. But no other speaker on JBL’s lineup beats their Xtreme series, which packs in audio powerful enough to rival that of a standing speaker but is also designed with convenience in mind. The Xtreme 2, currently 50% off on Amazon, is basically a mini boombox: passive radiators on either side amplify the bass output, and reviewers have highlighted its surprisingly clean mids for granularity that’s hard to come by with a speaker this size. The Xtreme speakers are bulkier than JBL’s other models (it weighs more than five pounds) but it’s a price absolutely worth paying for considering its impressive audio capabilities. Plus, it’s 100% waterproof and comes with a durable strap that you can use to easily carry it from room to room.
