You don’t need a fancy sound system to get people grooving. Wireless bluetooth speakers are loud, high quality, and easy to use. And, crucially, you can take them anywhere. Listen to something other than crickets on your camping trips. Play some tunes by the outdoor basketball court. Bring your decade-old summer party mix out to the pool. All you’ll need is a Bluetooth-compatible device to connect and play. Here are our favorite options available right now.

The Boom can pair with up to 150 other Boom speakers if you need extra volume, but the lone speaker pumps as loud as 90 decibels.

Another neat thing about this speaker is that you can open up the pelican case and store some of your belongings inside.
