Loudest Bluetooth Speakers - Audiostance

The 10 Loudest Bluetooth Speakers

So, you like to pump up the volume and looking for the loudest Bluetooth speaker? Well, then you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we take a look at the 10 loudest Bluetooth speakers which we have split into two categories, the heavyweights and the lightweights.

The heavyweights are the ultimate in size and power. While still portable, they’re on the bigger end of the size spectrum with an average weight of around 30 lbs. Most of these still have built-in batteries so you can take the party where ever you want.

The lightweights are for those looking for big sound in a small enclosure. What these speakers lack in size they make up for in power! If you want something loud which can still fit in a backpack or fit under your arm, then the lightweight section is where you want to start!

Our Pick!

Soundboks 2

Throw REAL parties. Anywhere.

Built to endure, the SOUNDBOKS 2 is the loudest Bluetooth Speaker which thrives in any weather and any climate.

Wattage vs Volume

You might be wondering, does a higher wattage provide a higher sound? Simply put, no it doesn’t.

There are many factors that affect the volume of a speaker. Looking at the wattage alone might give you an idea of a speaker’s potential volume (a 400W speaker will definitely be louder than a 5W speaker) but make sure you are comparing the RMS wattage instead of peak power.

How Loud is Too Loud?

According to the CDC, noise above 70 dB over a prolonged period of time may start to damage your hearing. Loud noise above 120 dB can cause immediate harm to your ears. Many of the speakers featured in this list exceed these numbers so be aware of the dangers loud noise poses to your hearing and never listen to loud music for prolonged periods of time.

Size
26.0 x 17.0 x 13.0″

The SOUNDBOKS 2 is the self-proclaimed “loudest battery-powered speaker in the world.” While we can’t confirm or deny whether or not this is true, SOUNDBOKS certainly have a good argument to make. This Bluetooth speaker produces a whopping 122 decibels of high-quality audio with an incredible 40-hour battery life. These two features alone put the SOUNDBOKS 2 at the top of the list as the loudest Bluetooth speaker.

Besides the excellent 40-hour battery life, the SOUNDBOKS 2 battery packs are removable. You can purchase additional packs direct from SOUNDBOKS which will allow you to keep the party going much longer. The speaker can also operate off socket power so you don’t need a fully charged battery to use the SOUNDBOKS 2 if you have an outlet to plug into.
The speaker allows for Bluetooth and ⅛-inch AUX inputs which allows you to plug in just about every device.

The Sound

Often loud Bluetooth speakers deliver a lot of noise but low quality. That’s not the case with the SOUNDBOKS 2. This speaker sounds great at low and high volumes. The bass is nice and punchy, perfect for urban and dance genres.

Why should you buy it?

  • At 122dB – It’s seriously loud!

Although smaller than the PartyBox 300, the Boombox does a good job of competing in terms of sound levels. Where the PartyBox is slightly louder and more bass-heavy, the Boombox delivers much better clarity. More in line with the quality we have come to expect from JBL.
