bluetooth sound box

Recommended Posts

What better place to ask, hopefully? What would be the best battery powered Bluetooth portable sound box?

 

Occasionally I would use it for production purposes. It would be nice to play back some test audio on shoots for nervous clients but I mostly want it for my garage and porch where I sit when the weather is nice. 

 

Regards

I like my Bose Color SoundLink, which I picked up at Best Buy while on location 3 years ago -- sounds good, reliable, has aux input, indestructible, waterproof, small enough to carry in a backpack. Mine is holding its charge for shorter periods now, but I'd probably get another one when this one dies. Hope this helps.

Monoprice has some great deals. I picked up a DeepBlue BT speaker that sounds better than most of those expensive 'designer' speakers in the big box stores. It even has an aux. 3.5mm input.

A fellow soundie makes these and they’re really fantastic: https://demerbox.com/

 

 

It sounds great. It’s waterpoof. It floats. It’s nearly indestructible. It has a 50 hour (!!) battery. It has storage....  AND it’s hand made by one of us!

 

Support each other!

 

Cheers,

Evan

I Love mine...   Been using it on a job with lots of water for a god mic.  Put a lectro ifb inside connect to the Aux in port( mini )  and viola- self contained waterproof wireless speaker system... or you can use bluetooth if that works better for you..

Just picked up a DemerBox! They have some deals on “scratch and dent” models...I mean it’s a Pelican...how “scratch and dent” could it be...hit them up!

That DemerBox is a very clever idea.

It looks very very good.

Seriously...the sound is so clean, deep bass, crisp highs. I can’t believe I never heard of them before seeing this thread. Also there’s something so familiar and comforting about it being made out of a Pelican. Maybe it’s that we use them day in and out....I do have to add that one of the most underrated features is no ANNOYING start up / pairing tone or music. It’s just on or off. Like it should be.  Definitely a great addition to my kit!
