You’ve come to the correct place if you’ve been having trouble locating the ideal wireless outdoor speaker. We’re sorry if that seems pompous, but if you continue on, you’ll find all the information you need to make an informed decision about which of the 15 finest wireless outdoor speakers to purchase in 2021.

Wi-Fi or Bluetooth speaker?

Bluetooth is used in cellphones, players, PCs, tablets, iPhones, iPads, and more, and the market is full of Bluetooth-enabled speakers.


Bluetooth speakers can connect to more devices than Wi-Fi speakers. It’s not Bluetooth speakers’ largest benefit, especially outside ones, but it’s crucial. You’ll connect any Bluetooth speaker you buy. Connecting your phone or PC to a Bluetooth speaker is easier than connecting to a Wi-Fi speaker, and most Bluetooth speakers don’t require apps (although JBL and UE speakers do). Most Wi-Fi speakers must be managed using an app.

Bluetooth speakers, especially outdoor speakers, are battery-powered and last longer than Wi-Fi speakers. If you want to take your speaker to the beach, pool, or anywhere, the battery is essential.



Wi-Fi speakers have another drawback compared to Bluetooth speakers: they must be linked to a Wi-Fi network (typically your home network) and your phone, PC, or other device must be connected to the same network to stream music. Even if it’s battery-powered, your Wi-Fi speaker won’t work outside because there’s no Wi-Fi network. If you want to organise a BBQ party (or any other party), a Wi-Fi speaker may be a good choice. You just need to pick the perfect one.

For Wi-Fi speakers range and sound quality are the key benefits.

Wi-Fi speakers outperform Bluetooth speakers. Bluetooth speakers require 30ft of range for continuous playback. Wi-Fi speakers can play uninterruptedly from 150ft or more away. If you’re having a backyard party, you may bring the speaker and phone outdoors and leave your router inside to stream music.


Sound quality is the other, and perhaps most crucial, benefit of Wi-Fi speakers. Wi-Fi has more bandwidth and bitrate than Bluetooth, so it produces better sound. Wi-Fi speakers can deliver high-fidelity audio, whereas Bluetooth speakers compress data and audio, reducing sound quality.

Wi-Fi speakers offer multi-room experience, which is unrelated to our theme. You may use some Bluetooth speakers to create a multi-room audio system by connecting 2–50 units to an audio system. Unfortunately, they won’t sync and you’ll always hear an echo. Wi-Fi speakers sync better than Bluetooth speakers, so if you want a multi-room system, buy the same type for each room.

Smart Wi-Fi speakers have become popular in the last two or three years, but most of them are not designed for outdoor use, so don’t expect Sonos or Google home speakers here. Instead, look for ones using Bluetooth technology that can be used indoors or outdoors. Libratone ZIPP, UE BLAST, GGMM E5, etc. are good speakers.


If you want to use your outdoor wireless speaker everywhere, not just in your backyard or around the house, you should buy some Bluetooth speaker, and we have found plenty of great options, you just have to pick the one that is right for you.

This brings us to the end of this section on Bluetooth VS Wi-Fi. Buy a Wi-Fi speaker that also has Bluetooth functionality enabled if you want a multipurpose speaker that can be used outside (thanks to Bluetooth technology and a battery) and can also be connected to your home network (whether you want to use it as part of a multi-room system or you just want better sound quality). 


f you want a speaker that can connect to your home network, you should look for one that has Bluetooth functionality enabled. Only Bluetooth speakers will be the subject of discussion in this article; however, one of our upcoming articles will be devoted to Wi-Fi speakers that also include Bluetooth functionality.

MOKCAO SoundBoom

MOKCAO is one of several new audio firms. It found its audience in under a year. Some of their models resemble Harman/Kardon models, but it may be our impression. SoundBoom is their outdoor Bluetooth speaker. It’s not the most expensive item on the list. SoundBoom Bluetooth speaker comes in a white box with drawings. Don’t be fooled by the speaker’s size. The box contains an instruction handbook, charging cable, and auxiliary cord.

MOKCAO SoundBoom

The speaker is little yet not micro. 2.4 pounds, 6.7 inches tall, 4.9 inches wide, and 4.9 inches deep. Rubber covers the top and bottom, while robust aluminium mesh protects the drivers on the sides. The power button (push and hold for a few seconds to switch on the speaker, and pairing starts immediately), play/pause button, and two volume buttons are on top (you can press and hold them to adjust the volume, or press and release to change the track). Silicone buttons feel great. The back of the speaker has a narrow rubberized spine with a rubber grip at the top and a rubber flap that protects the line-in (audio) port and charging port at the bottom.

This little speaker has strong drivers. Its 20W subwoofer, 10W tweeter, and two passive radiators indicate a bass-heavy speaker. This speaker has a powerful subwoofer, unlike others. This small speaker is cute. SoundBoom is sleeker than other inexpensive speakers. It is black or white and formed like a triangular prism with rounded sides.

MOKCAO SoundBoom

SoundBoom is reinforced with metal mesh that covers most of the speaker. Dropping the speaker may damage it. SoundBoom is splash-proof and IPX4-rated, so it can handle mild rain but not submersion. It uses Bluetooth 4.0 and works with most Bluetooth devices. The advertised range is 33ft, and we found the connection steady up to 30ft. Watching movies on your iPad, iPod, or iPhone using Bluetooth is seamless.

If this speaker wasn’t loud, this could be a drawback. The battery lasts 5 hours at 50% level, which isn’t great when you turn up the volume. If you’re not holding a party, this one is loud enough at 50% volume. That’s why we included SoundBoom’s battery in its pros. SoundBoom’s two built-in mics make conversing easy. These mics eliminate external noise well, so your conversation partner can hear you well. SoundBoom’s speakerphone capability outperforms even more pricey speakers.

MOKCAO SoundBoom

SoundBoom has robust bass, sharp vocals, and clean highs. At maximum volume, there is slight distortion, but it is still impressive and definitely the best around $40. The drivers’ configuration gives SoundBoom 360-degree sound. Though not evenly distributed, the sound is excellent.



  • Superior construction and an ingress protection rating of IPX4
  • In terms of compatibility and connection quality its great
  • Battery is good
  • There are two microphones constructed within the device.
  • Superior sound and a full 360 degrees of sound



  • A micro-USB port is not available.
  • Less durable than some alternatives for use in the great outdoors



For this price, AOMAIS Ball comes in a plain cardboard box with a few of pictures. The speaker comes with a micro USB charging cord, auxiliary cord, instruction booklet, and a silly-looking pool floaty since the speaker doesn’t float.
AOMAIS Ball is one of the coolest-looking speakers in this price category. It’s circular, weighs 9 ounces, and has a 5.5-inch diameter (some photographs make it look bigger).


Aluminum mesh covers the front, and the back is rubberized. The rear has only three buttons: power (pairing starts automatically when you switch on the speaker) and two volume. A rubber flap covers the micro USB charging port and line-in connector at the bottom of the rear panel. The speaker has a nylon strap that you can attach a carabiner to and hang in your bathroom.

The speaker has two drivers—a tweeter and a woofer—with 15W of power, which is surprising for such a little speaker. As noted, this is one of the most stylish speakers in this price range. You’ll probably appreciate AOMAIS Ball’s design. Speakers are black, blue, and red.


It’s not shockproof, but the speaker seems substantial and can take a battering. For now, buyers were pleased with this speaker’s durability. This cheap speaker is waterproof, which is unusual. It can be submerged for 30 minutes at 1m. We spilled a bottle of water over it, yet the sound stayed. AOMAIS Ball has perfect Bluetooth 4.2. Pairing takes roughly 3 seconds, starts automatically, and has a standard Bluetooth range of 30ft. Read about our minor complaint regarding connecting two speakers later.

For its compactness, AOMAIS Ball’s 2,500mAh battery can last up to 8 hours at 50% volume and 3 hours at full volume. For under $30, you can’t expect perfection. AOMAIS Ball speakers can connect. Pairing two speakers is difficult, but you’ll be glad you did. More bass, genuine sound, and louder.


The speaker’s mic lets you take calls. Your voice will be clear enough for the other person to understand. The mic picks up a lot of noise, making boisterous conversations difficult. Vocals, guitars, and highs are clear on AOMAIS Ball, however the speaker lacks bass. Bass is present but should be punchier. The sound is adequate for the price.



  • Features like as an IPX7 water resistance rating and a well-built design are a plus.
  • Energy retention
  • Creating stereo sound by linking two AOMAIS Ball speakers
  • An internal microphone is included.
  • The audio quality on AOMAIS Ball is remarkable



  • Putting together a pair of AOMAIS Ball speakers is a difficult task
