Criteria For A Great Outdoor Speaker
There are a few things that any great outdoor Bluetooth speaker should have:
Durability. Since these types of speakers will be used outdoors, durability is a top priority. The speaker should be able to withstand knocks and bumps. Outdoor speakers can be exposed to sun, rain, snow, and dust. So it is important that a portable speaker is able to hold up under these different circumstances. Pay attention to the speaker’s exterior to see if it is genuinely suited for outdoor use. Read the product description carefully and look for the words, “all-weather”, “water- resistant”, “waterproof”, “dust-proof”, and “shockproof”. Sturdy speakers will have some of these words in the description.
Good sound quality. Just because you want a sturdy outdoor speaker does not mean you have to compromise on sound quality. It should produce a clear sound even when played at high volumes. Any good portable speaker should be packed with enough power to fill a standard sized room with music.
Easily portable. You probably want to purchase a wireless outdoor speaker so that you can take your music anywhere with you. Make sure that it won’t be a burden to carry around. It should be small and light.
Good battery life. When you’re having a party or just relaxing outdoors, you definitely don’t want your music to die out after just a few hours. Be sure to choose a speaker that will give you several hours of playing time. Also, check how long it takes for the battery to fully recharge.
The Cambridge SoundWorks Oontz Angle 3 is water resistant and perfect for taking to the pool or to the beach. This triangular speaker features two precision acoustic drivers and a bass. Cambridge SoundWorks claims that these two features put together, deliver a clear sound packed with a nice bass tone. Many complain that their portable outdoor speaker starts producing a distorted sound when they play their music at high volumes. Customers that have bought the Oontz Angle 3, however, say that even when music is played at the maximum volume, the sound does not get muffled.
The triangular design separates the drivers from the bass radiator which enhances the sound clarity. With 10 watts of power, this small powerhouse can fill a room with music. Connect it quickly to your device via Bluetooth.
The Oontz Angle 3 weighs in at just 9 ounces and has dimensions of 5.2 inches by 2.8 inches by 2.5 inches. Small and light in weight, this portable speaker is easy to take with you anywhere. It is small enough to even fit in the cup holder of your car. With no sharp edges, its triangle shape makes it comfortable to carry in your hand.
The rechargeable battery will give you up to 7-hours of playtime.
Users rave that it gets very loud- much louder than the previous model. Even in noisy environments, you can still hear your music clearly. At maximum volume, it still delivers a clear sound.
Since it is small and light, it is easy to throw in your backpack, purse, or travel bag. It is durable and weather resistance which is a huge plus. The control buttons are quite obvious, making the speaker very user-friendly. The rechargeable battery lasts a long time and charges up fast. This speaker has a sleek style that makes it suitable to use for many different occasions. Its budget-friendly price makes it one of the top sellers among portable outdoor speakers.
There are not many bad things to say about this product. Some users complain that the bass isn’t very powerful. Others say it doesn’t get quite as loud as they would like but they also admit that for such a small speaker, it does produce a lot of sound. It is best to use it for small gatherings rather than large parties.
This portable speaker ranks very high for a budget-friendly option. If you want a speaker for entertaining large parties, however, you may want to look for a bigger speaker. In general, however, this speaker has everything that you need in a small, portable outdoor Bluetooth speaker.
