How to choose a Bluetooth speaker

So you’re shopping for a cheap Bluetooth speaker, huh? The first thing you’re going to want to do is figure out what you’re going to use it for and the features that could be of use. If you’re looking for one for use around around the house, a virtual assistant like Amazon Alexa could be a worthwhile addition. However, if you need a portable speaker to take to the beach, we recommend opting for one that can survive a knock, bump, and splash. Not sure where to start? Take a look at our list of the best Bluetooth speakers.

Follow this straightforward advice and you’ll have no trouble snapping up a cheap Bluetooth speaker that will no doubt be a loyal companion for years to come. But fall into the trap of impulse purchasing the first one that falls into your budget and you could be in for a nasty surprise when it arrives and it’s missing the crucial feature you had your heart set on — be it Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Sonos-style multi-room sharing, all-day battery life, or something as simple as the option to connect multiple devices at once.
