We’ve all been there. The decorations are perfect, the food is delicious, and you’re wearing your best outfit. But the party still doesn’t seem to get going. If you’ve been in this situation, your sound system might be to blame. Nothing that good party speakers can’t fix!

While it’s possible to host a great party using only your laptop, the atmosphere is never going to compare to using a proper set of party speakers. A real party speaker system is the key to turning a good event into a great one!

After all, what’s a party without music?

But did you know that there is more to buying the best party speakers than you might think? Today you can buy almost any sort of speaker, but finding the right one for you is not as easy as you may think.

Don’t worry. We’ve done some research on the perfect speakers for all of your party needs!

Why Should I Buy Party Speakers?

Before you jump in and buy your party speakers, you need to decide what sort of event you want to use them for.

Buying proper speakers will help you to hear both the details of your music and its thumping bass. With even a great quality computer, your sound will be quiet, muffled, and tinny – not exactly the best for a party!

Good speakers will help your music to fill the whole room and make everyone want to get up and dance.

But don’t worry, you don’t need a full professional speaker system to have fantastic sound quality. There are great options for almost every price point.

Location is one of the most important considerations when it comes to investing in a new set of speakers. Do you want to have a backyard party or a poolside bash? If you’re going to host an outdoor event, make sure you pick a speaker that has battery power (unless you have access to outdoor outlets) and is appropriate for external use.

Some speakers are water-resistant, making them perfect for beach parties and outdoor events. Believe it or not, you can even use some speakers in the shower!

sound range is also something to keep in mind. Some speakers are more powerful than others, so you shouldn’t expect a weaker device to fill your whole backyard with sound. But also remember that there is no point investing in a massive speaker if you only plan on hosting a small indoor event.

So, which speaker should you get? We’ve picked out five of the very best party speakers on the market to help you and your family decide which one is right for you!

The Best of the Best:

Best Overall: JBL PartyBOX 300

There’s no question about it; the JBL PartyBOX 300 is our top pick out of these speakers. It’s attractive, with a fun built-in light show. You can set the lights to meter, pulse or party mode to change up the vibe from event to event.

This speaker is not just attractive, it also has excellent sound quality. The JBL PartyBOX 300 will light up your event with your favorite music. It supports musical instruments like the guitar, which means it is perfect for hired entertainers – or perhaps more musical party hosts!

Bluetooth connectivity means that you can set up your favorite playlist and then just leave it to play while you enjoy the party.

The only real weakness of the PartyBOX 300 is in its outdoor performance. This speaker works best indoors and is not water-resistant. If you want to host an event outside, you might want to use this speaker under a tent or covering to make the most of its sound quality.

While it may not be the smallest or cheapest speaker, the PartyBOX 300 certainly punches above its weight. It has a great battery life, and the fun lights will make it a hit with both adults and kids.

Best Sound: Bose S1 Pro

For party hosts who really want to make a splash, the BoseS1Pro is the best choice. The BoseS1Pro is a fantastic rugged speaker designed to improve the sound in almost any location.

At almost $60 more than our second most expensive pick, this is not an insignificant investment. But if you want great sound and portability, you’re not going to get much better than the Bose S1 Pro.

This speaker has smart sensors that detect its placement and change the sound to accommodate its position. Its long battery life and excellent Bluetooth range also make it a perfect choice for parties in even unconventional locations. However, do be aware that it is not water-resistant, so it’s best to keep it covered on rainy days!

The S1 Pro is also compatible with instruments, so it’s a dream for live entertainers.

Despite its appearance, this speaker is surprisingly transportable. Built with lightweight materials, the S1 Pro also comes with a carry case. It’s made to travel!

The S1 Pro is an excellent choice for outdoor events or any family that wants to host parties outside the home!

Best Value for Money: Zamkol IPX6

If you’re just getting into hosting parties, the Zamkol IPX6 is a fantastic entry to the world of speakers. This small cylindrical speaker packs a surprising punch. The 360-degree sound system is just one reason why this tiny speaker a great centerpiece for any small party.

What’s more, the Zamkol IPX6 is water resistant, making it a great choice for outdoor get-togethers. It even has a small built-in microphone – perfect for making a short announcement that the cake is ready to be cut, or that it’s time to eat!

Its powerful Bluetooth means that it is easy to step away once you’ve set up your playlist. You can even pair multiple speakers together to create a true surround-sound experience.

At only $59.99, this speaker is a steal. It is one of the most portable and compact speakers on our list. If you aren’t ready to invest in a bigger speaker, this is the best choice for you.
