With its 24 hour battery life, surprisingly good bass, and crystal clear sound quality, the Anker SoundCore has long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker. But its run may be at an end, because Anker just upgraded it with IPX5 water resistance, and you can get the new model for $8 off today.
Whether you’re singing in the shower or catching up on podcasts by the pool, water-resistant Bluetooth speakers are inexpensive, plentiful, and far more useful than the shower radios that preceded them. But with so many options, we want to know which ones are really worth the money, so check out the rules below, then…
Most inexpensive Bluetooth speakers you see include a single 5W driver, or maybe dual 5W drivers if you’re lucky. But the AOMAIS Sport II packs in a pair of 10W drivers, plus IPX7 water resistance (meaning it can actually be submerged to a point), and a 10 hour battery. Not bad for $33.
