Best Portable Wireless Speakers

September 6, 2019

Whether you’re designing your dream home theater, setting up a dorm room, or trying to bring the party on the road, having the right set of portable wireless speakers is absolutely essential. Everyone from expert filmmakers to event planners to DJs will talk your ear off about the importance of sound quality — it’s probably the most crucial element of watching a movie or TV show. Seriously, the picture on a movie or TV show can be immaculate, but unless the sound is good, it’ll hardly matter at all. Audio is the center of everything, from big screens to parties on the go, which means that having good portable wireless speakers is really key to guaranteeing a good time.

It used to be that your sound quality was restricted to not only the power of your speakers, but the length of the wires, plugs, and other hookups, as well. But with wireless portable speakers, you can bring the sound just about anywhere (as long as they’re charged, of course). They’ve proven so popular that most electronics companies seem to make some kind of portable wireless speakers, which is excellent for consumer choice, but also more than a little bit confusing. But here’s some news that should be sweet music to your ears: MASSE is here to help you sort through all the portable wireless speakers and find the best set for you. We feature only real recommendations from real shoppers who have used the speakers, with no paid posts or sponsored reviews allowed.

Not all portable wireless speakers are appropriate for every situation. Sometimes, you need a small set of portable speakers — neither dorm rooms nor the front baskets on bicycles offer much storage space — and in other cases, having a big set with a whole bunch of speakers leads to an absolutely awesome auditory experience. The brand that makes the portable wireless speakers is also super-important, because some have really rich sound quality while others are tinny and terrible. Plus, you have to consider other features, like whether you want them to connect to other speakers or what kind of connection range you need. These are all crucial points, and we’re here to help you through it and get the party started as soon as possible!
