Best Bluetooth speakers Under $50

Blast your music, be the party

by Naveen Mehta| Dec, 2017

The real joy of listening to music comes when one get to hear a sharp, clear sound and every beat connects to the feelings of the listener. Now the thing here is that –  Speakers of our smartphones can not bring that feel and you can’t plugin your headphones all the time because sometimes you need to get loose. Also, if there are more people with you who want to listen to good music then headphones are worthless and your phone’s speaker- well! they are not a great choice. We all know the solution to this problem, ‘The Wireless Bluetooth Speakers’. 

But the questions that arises now

Q. Aren’t they expensive?
Q. If not then, are cheaper ones that good?
Q. Does they sound great?
Q. Are they sturdy and durable?

All these questions are very genuine and I had the same questions in my mind when I decided to try a cheaper (affordable would be nice) Bluetooth speaker.
Before I go any further let’s look what we actually want from a Bluetooth speaker- looks, obviously great sound, long battery life, slim and sturdy. There are be more
things to look into a speaker before buying, but these are the specs that look first.
Now in this post, I tried to bring to you the 10 best and the most affordable bluetooth speakers that are in market right now. They all are really great products with
excellent customer satisfaction rates. So, lets have a look-

Item Description:

JBL has always been a pioneer in the market for audio electronis. Clip 2 is the most portable Bluetooth speaker on this list. Its made up of all plastic and looks are killer. the speaker is IPX7 certified which means that it is completely waterproof but I highly doubt that you gonna keep it in water. It has five small buttons for volume control, power button, Bluetooth connection button and a call button. Clip 2 has an inbuilt microphone and call button that means you don’t have to reach to your everytime to pick up a call. It has 3.5mm wired jack to connect directly to the phone. You will not find any glitch in the connection within 30 meters range of distance.

With an 8 hours battery life, you can expect some good music time. Now coming to the sound quality- JBL Clip 2 has a pretty sweet sound for a small 3W driver and can get fairly loud.At this price point and with the name of the JBL, you can get value for your money.

Bottom Line

 Clip 2 is very stylish and easy to carry with good sound quality. If you are looking for a very small yet powerful Bluetooth Speaker, then JBL Clip 2 is the best choice.

Item Description:

Doss has really done wonders with this BlueTooth Speaker. Doss Touch is one of the best Bluetooth speakers under $50 that are currently in the market. Doss touch is very stylish and comes with touch button feature. Overall the device is very smart in every way. It comes with long 12 hours battery life, two 6W drivers, also functions as a speakerphone and you can insert a Micro SD card for extra versatility. Touch control function is sleek and modern and I doubt there is any Bluetooth speaker having this feature at this price point.

Now looking at the sound quality- Doss touch comes with high definition audio speaker and also has a unique bass setup for a better performance. Apart from SD card, Doss touch also has an AUX input. The battery life is also fantastic. The only problem that I found that is that it’s not waterproof and sturdy, so you might have to handle it with care. Other than that, this Bluetooth speaker is absolutely phenomenal at what it does. If you handle your things with care then this is a must grab.

Bottom Line

Doss Touch is a classy piece of tech and is great for indoor listening. With all cool features, it’s a win-win for the buyer.

Item Description:

CB3 Armor 3 is the Big Guy on this list. This is a waterproof speaker that’s as rugged as it looks. As the name clearly indicates Armor XL has a hard plastic casing that kind of looks like armour. It also has a grippy rubber that helps it to avoid water damage and also makes it dust, mud and rain proof. It does not have a sleek design or any other kind of charming looks, but that’s not what it was made for. The Armor XL has Bluetooth 4.0 and a battery life of about 10 hours. On the top are a few built-in playback controls that let you skip between tracks, adjust volume, mute and pause or play music buttons.

Now coming to sound quality- Armor XL has two 15W drivers with subwoofers. The Bass come through loud, so if you enjoy a strong low-end music, you’ll be definitely satisfied with this Bluetooth speaker. Overall, it can be fairly assumed that this device is a beast in this price range and if you are looking for a beast at low cost, CB3 Armor XL is here to amaze you.

Bottom Line

If you prefer the powerful sound and super sturdiness over great looks, then CB3 Armor XL is the Bluetooth speaker just for you.

Item Description:

Anker has come up to be a major player in the audio electronics market. SoundCore 2 is a good example of this. Although made with a common rectangular design, it still looks pretty cool. Also, it plays pretty loud for its small size, is water-resistant and has an excellent battery life of more than 24 hours. That’s all good and the SoundCore 2 is a perfectly fine little wireless speaker. It’s also light and portable with all major control buttons given on the top. It has a superb Bluetooth connectivity range up to 66 feet and also has an AUX input for direct connection. There’s a built-in microphone for making speakerphone calls.

Now coming to the sound quality- Anker SoundCore 2 is flawless at low and mid sounds but can’t handle certain bass frequencies at higher volumes. It plays bigger than its size and this is par for the course for these little speakers. It exceeds most of the Bluetooth speakers on the list in terms of Bluetooth range and battery life and is a good choice for outdoors.

Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a reliable, durable Bluetooth speaker at a low price, Anker SoundCore 2 is for you. This speaker is water resistant, lightweight, and can last more than 40 hours on a single charge.

Item Description:

The Photive Hydra is for those who are more concerned about the sound quality then the convenience. If you are planning to invest some money on a cheap but sturdy Bluetooth speaker then this is the product for you. With two 40 mm drivers plus a support of a subwoofer, you can expect some real bass and no distortion at all event even high volume levels. Features like IP66 adds to the durability of the speaker. This little guy is rubberized on the exterior and therefore, it is safe even if drops from a high foot wall. The rugged exterior gives you a firm grip. The latest version of Bluetooth, 4.0, not only consumes less power but also gives better sound to the listeners.

Photive HYDRA speaker is small but compact and gives out a good quality sound. It is amazing that we get such wonderful sounds from a small device. The louder you play the better is the bass, unlike most speakers that become indistinct when it gets louder. The battery could be expected to drain after 8 hours of nonstop music which is a quite long time. Even if you listen for two hours of music every day, it will last for four days at a stretch. The design is really plain and simple but the quality and performance that you get for $30 are simply awesome.

Bottom Line

There are very few Bluetooth speakers that are good at every thing and this is one of them.

Item Description:

DKnight Magicbox 2 is a slim black box with grilles on three sides and a made up of soft plastic. It has a power switch, micro USB input for charging, and the 3.5mm input as well. The rubber definitely adds to the durability and can handle high falls. The connection stays within the range of about 30 feet. The quality of the microphone is not very good but for a speaker, this little thing can be ignored. Battery life is between 10-12hours. The DKnight MagicBox II is a great little speaker for the price. It gets plenty loud and although the sound quality has its moments, it’s a really solid listen overall. If you are in a large room it does not carry well, but you should really have larger speakers for that anyway. Also, it’s not waterproof, so if you require one with that feature then this is not the one.

Overall, DKnight Magicbox 2 is a good Bluetooth speaker and is a great option if you ever get a chance to grab one

Bottom Line

It is ideal for your personal use or an indoor party.
