Gift Guide for Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Speakers
I got in allot of Bluetooth speakers to check out that are all in different price. I decided besides just photo’s I would record each product to the same song and same sound frequency to see the difference of them all. I chose the song Everlong by the foo fighters because I thought it would be great since it goes from slow to rock in the first 30 seconds plus I love Dave Grohl (who doesn’t).
Below you will find videos and specs of the 5 speakers so you can decide which one is right for your price point.
Ecogear Pebbe Bluetooth Waterpoof Wireless Speaker is the perfect speaker for the outdoor adventurous music lover. It’s definitely rugged and I have tried it in the water playing music which for being under water the sound quality was not that bad.

UE ROLL is so far the best speaker for me personally. It’ circular shape offers a 360 audio experience and had stronger base then the others I tried (besides the Sonos). Since the speaker is water proof it also comes with a floatation device to hold the speaker perfectly. Since its wireless and Bluetooth plus being water resistant this is the perfect speaker for the lake. It’s currently on com and the pricing starts at $89.00.

The AYL Soundfit IPX5 Water Resistant Speaker was a pleasant surprise.
