Best Bluetooth Speakers For Bass

If you're a fan of bass-heavy music like EDM or hip-hop, it's important to have a speaker that can produce a warm and full bass. While some speakers on the market struggle to reproduce low-bass, others can accurately reproduce the present and powerful bass you're looking for. Speakers that support Bluetooth are great for their portability; you can use them out and about since they don't require an internet connection. Whether you want a speaker with a good voice assistant or a speaker to fit your budget, many options are available that have a good bass performance.

We've tested over 100 speakers, and below are our recommendations for the best Bluetooth speakers for bass. If you want to see more speakers, check out our picks for the loudest Bluetooth speakers, the best speakers for parties, and the best cheap speakers.


  1. Best Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    The JBL PartyBox 310 is the best Bluetooth speaker for bass that we've tested. It's a solid party speaker with an extended low-bass right out of the box, so you feel plenty of thump and rumble in the mix. Its Bass Boost feature gives you more control over its output, so you can add even more punch if you like, or you can use its graphic EQ to switch up its performance across the range. Its versatile performance makes it a great pick for listening to many different music genres, but if you love bass-heavy sounds like EDM and hip-hop, you're in luck. Crank up the speaker to enjoy a deep rumble you can feel through the floor.

    Since it's designed for use at parties, this speaker comes with lots of cool features. Its circular RGB lights are customizable, meaning you can choose between different color schemes based on your aesthetic. Also, you have microphone and guitar inputs for your next jam session, as well as karaoke settings in the app in case you want to host a sing-along at your next event. Its large design isn't ideal for everyone, though, since it takes up a lot of space in your room. It's still pretty portable, thanks to the built-in handle and wheels that let you roll it from place to place.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    If you're looking for a more affordable alternative to the JBL PartyBox 310, check out the Sony SRS-XG500. It's another great option for bass lovers, with plenty of punch and rumble in the mix right out of the box. Its customization tools let you add even more boom to the mix, thanks to the graphic EQ available in its companion app. There's even a preset called MEGA BASS that lets you feel the floor shake with EDM and other bass-focused genres.

    It's also a smaller, more portable alternative to the JBL. It offers a boombox-style design with a built-in handle to take it with you from one room to the next. There are even customizable RGB lights on the sides, which you can turn on and off depending on your mood, and microphone and guitar inputs for your next music session. However, given its smaller size, it's not much of a surprise that the speaker brings less low-bass than the JBL, and it doesn't get quite as loud. It's still more than suitable for most uses, though—and it may offer a better value if you don't have room for the JBL.

  3. Best Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    Another bass-friendly option at an even more affordable price is the Monster Rockin' Roller 270X. It's also a party speaker, so you find lots of neat add-ons to make your next event more fun for everyone. Microphone and guitar inputs let you become your own musician, and there's even a bottle opener built into the speaker itself. You can't customize its lights like with our top picks, but LED lights next to the controls make it easy to spot the buttons in a dark and crowded room.

    This speaker doesn't reproduce quite as much low-bass as the Sony SRS-XG500—but it still does a pretty good job for its price. Voices and instruments are clear in the mix, with a little extra sparkle in the treble to bring higher-pitched sounds to life. There's some extra punch in the high-bass, which is great for bringing excitement to bass-heavy tunes. It's not as customizable as our top picks, either, but you still have bass and treble controls, which you can access through the app or the physical controls on the speaker itself, depending on your preferences.

  4. Best Lower Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    The Anker Soundcore Motion Boom is a small but mighty speaker that can produce quite an extended low-bass for its portable size. It's a more affordable alternative to the Monster Rockin' Roller 270X, and while it doesn't have any microphone or guitar inputs for your next party, it may prove to be a better value if you don't plan to use those features in the first place. For its price, it brings a solid amount of bass, ensuring that you feel the punch in bass-heavy tracks. Other instruments remain clear in the mix, too, and the bass doesn't overwhelm them, so you enjoy a clear and accurate reproduction of your favorite tracks.

    If you want a different sound, there are a lot of customization tools on hand. There's a BASS button right on the speaker itself, which you can use to activate the Bass Up feature that adds more punch in the bass to your tunes. Also, you find a graphic EQ and other presets through the speaker's companion app, which lets you switch up its sound across the whole range. It's smaller and lighter than the top picks on our list, too, so you can easily carry it with you from room to room and bring it outside. Overall, it's a versatile pick that brings the "boom" in the bass.

  5. Best Budget Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    The Anker Soundcore Flare 2 is the best budget speaker for bass we've tested. Overall, this portable Bluetooth speaker is a more affordable alternative to our top picks, and it offers a standout bass performance compared to other products at this price point. This speaker reproduces a good amount of bass right out of the box, but its sound customization features help it to stand out from the pack. Bass lovers can use the BassUp preset to add more thump to the mix, and the graphic EQ gives you control of the speaker's sound across the frequency range, so you can manually control the amount of rumble you feel.

    Available in both Black and Blue color variants, this small speaker has rings of light around its edges, allowing you to set the mood as you listen to your favorite tunes. Thanks to its versatile design, you can use it to bring your music with you everywhere you go, and the over eight-hour battery life lets you enjoy long listening sessions without interruption. It's small and lightweight, and it's rated IPX7 for water resistance, which helps protect it in case you use it outdoors. That said, it doesn't get quite as loud as the Anker Soundcore Motion Boom, which is disappointing if you want to fill a larger area with sound.

  6. Best Home Speaker For Bass

    Many of our top picks include portable Bluetooth speakers designed to be used both in and out of the home. However, if you only plan to use your speaker within the confines of your house, you may want to opt for a more stylish home speaker that blends in with your decor. The best home speaker for bass we've tested is the Denon Home 350, a rather large speaker with a sleek and unassuming design. Like many home speakers on the market, its built-in Alexa capabilities let you control it with only your voice, so you can enjoy hands-free listening from your couch.

    Thanks to its hefty build, this speaker has no trouble reproducing the deep thump and rumble in the low-bass. It's designed to support integration with other Denon speakers as well as some Denon soundbars, and it's ideal for bringing out the rumble in action-packed movie scenes, too. If you want more bass in the mix, the levels are adjustable through the speaker's companion app. Whether you plan to listen to music, podcasts, or audiobooks, or you want to integrate it with a soundbar for watching movies and TV shows, it's a great addition to your home setup.

  7. Most Versatile Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    If you aren't interested in a party speaker but still want a premium Bluetooth speaker for bass, consider the Sonos Move. This well-built device is one of the best Bluetooth speakers we've tested, with a versatile performance that can please many types of listeners. It's sleek and stylish enough for integration into your home setup, and its built-in voice assistant capabilities offer hands-free support for your favorite tunes. It's battery-operated, too, so you can bring it with you outside, and its IP56 rating for dust and water resistance helps to keep it safe against the elements.

    Whether you plan to use your speaker in or out of your home, it offers a great sound quality that's suitable for listening to all different types of music genres. Most importantly, there's plenty of rumble in the bass, so you feel the excitement with genres like EDM and hip-hop, as well as action-packed videos and movies. Thanks to the bass adjustment feature in its app, you can add more punch to the mix, ensuring that you feel a little extra boom. Since it's a bit smaller than the JBL PartyBox 310, this speaker naturally brings a little less low-bass to the mix, but you aren't likely to notice unless you're an astute audiophile. If party speakers aren't for you and you prefer something more portable and versatile, the Sonos is a great choice.
