Updated
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 95 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 speaker for bass that we've tested. There's a 'Bass Boost' feature with two bass levels you can use to bump up the bass in your audio. With 'Bass Boost' set to level '1', it offers a boomy sound profile suitable for a variety of audio content that can produce a thumpy and rumbling low-bass, making it great for bass-heavy music-lovers. You can further tweak its sound profile to your liking, thanks to the graphic EQ featured in its companion app.

    It gets incredibly loud, making it great to use at parties. It features mic and guitar inputs, along with karaoke settings, which is great for musicians and karaoke lovers. While its low bass doesn't get as deep as the JBL PartyBox 710, the 310 is much more portable. It's battery-powered and even comes with a 12V DC port to charge it from your car's lighter port, so its battery doesn't die in the middle of the party. Also, it's rated IPX4 for water resistance, meaning it's certified to be protected from small splashes of water, so you don't have to worry about it getting a bit wet when taking it outdoors with you.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    The best upper-mid-range speaker for bass that we've tested is the Sony SRS-XG500. With its 'MEGA BASS' feature enabled, this portable speaker has a somewhat boomy sound profile that can produce deep bass, meaning you can feel the punch in bass-heavy music. You can also tweak its sound to your liking using the graphic EQ and presets featured in its companion app. That said, while its boomy sound profile packs a punch, you can't feel the deep thump and rumble in the low bass range like you can with larger party speakers like the JBL PartyBox 310. Also, while it gets loud enough to fill a large room with sound, it doesn't get quite as loud as the larger PartyBox 310.

    Still, it comes with a built-in carrying handle you can use to transport it in one hand, making it very portable, and it's well-built with an IP66 rating for dust and water resistance, so you don't have to worry about it getting a bit wet when taking it outdoors with you. It also comes with party features like customizable RGB lights and a mic/guitar input which is great for musicians and karaoke-lovers. It's advertised to be compatible with the Fiestable app too, which you can use to access extra party features of this speaker.

  3. Best Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    Looking for something more affordable? Check out the Monster Rockin' Roller 270X. Like the Sony SRS-XG500, this portable party speaker can produce a boomy and punchy low-bass out-of-the-box and can get loud enough to fill a large crowded room with sound. You can also use the bass and treble adjustments in its companion app to tweak its sound profile to better suit your preferences. While it can produce a boomy bass, you can't feel the thump and rumble typically present in the low-bass range like you can with larger party speakers. Also, it has to downmix stereo content to mono, resulting in a less immersive-sounding soundstage.

    This feature-packed speaker comes with a built-in bottle opener to enjoy drinks with friends and has its own included external microphone, which is great for karaoke lovers. It also features radio capabilities, you can wire an external guitar to it, and you can even charge Qi-compatible devices like your smartphone via the Qi wireless charging pad on top of the speaker. Its long-lasting battery life of over 64 hours makes it great for multiple long listening sessions, and it comes with a built-in telescopic handle and wheels so you can easily wheel it around from one party to the next. It also comes with an IPX4 rating for water resistance that certifies it to withstand small splashes of water, so you don't need to worry about it getting a bit wet from some light rain at your next outdoor party.

  4. Best Lower Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    With its BassUp feature enabled, The Anker Soundcore Motion Boom is a small but mighty speaker that can produce quite an extended low-bass for its portable size. While it doesn't reproduce the deep thump and rumble in low-bass like larger party speakers, it still packs a punch. It also gets quite loud for its size, which is great if you like to blast your favorite music. Its balanced mid-range ensures vocals and lead instruments sound clear and present in the mix, though higher-pitched vocals and instruments can sound dull and veiled. Fortunately, you can tweak its sound profile to your liking, thanks to the graphic EQ and presets in its companion app.

    This speaker is well-built with an IPX7 rating for water resistance that certifies it to be immersible in a meter of water for up to 30 minutes, so you don't have to worry about water damage from some light rain or accidentally dropping it in a pool of water while outdoors. Its long-lasting battery life of almost 40 hours also makes it great for long listening sessions, though this can vary depending on your chosen settings and usage habits. Unlike other, larger party speakers on this list, like the Monster Rockin' Roller 270X, it doesn't come with any RGB lights or mic and guitar inputs to wire external instruments to the speaker. That said, its smaller size makes it significantly more portable.

  5. Best Budget Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    If you're looking for a more budget-friendly Bluetooth speaker for bass, the Anker Soundcore Flare 2 is the best budget speaker for bass that we've tested. With its BassUp feature enabled, this small portable speaker has a balanced sound profile suitable for listening to different music genres. However, higher-pitched vocals and instruments sound a bit dark at times. There's also a graphic EQ and presets in its companion app you can use to customize its sound to your liking, so you can bump up the bass when you like. Like most speakers its size, it lacks low-bass, so you can't feel the punch, thump, and rumble typically present in bass-heavy music like EDM or hip-hop as you can with larger speakers. If you can afford to stretch your budget, the Anker Soundcore Motion Boom can produce a punchier bass and gets louder. Still, the Flare 2 is the portable Bluetooth speaker with the deepest bass under $100 that we've tested.

    This small speaker offers a wide and spacious-sounding soundstage thanks to its 360-degree design. While it doesn't get very loud on its own, you can pair it to multiple other Flare 2 speakers if you want to amplify your audio across larger, more crowded settings like at a party. It comes with customizable RGB lights and supports voice assistants through your smartphone. It's also well-built with an IPX7 rating for water resistance that certifies it to be immersible in up to a meter of water for 30 minutes, so you can take it outside or to the pool with you without needing to worry about it getting a bit wet.

  6. Best Home Speaker For Bass

    The Denon Home 350 is a stereo speaker designed for use at home and naturally blends in better with your home decor than the other party speakers on this list, like the JBL PartyBox 310. It has a boomy default sound profile and can produce an impressive deep, thumpy, and rumbling low-bass. It has a balanced mid-range, so vocals and lead instruments sound clear and present in the mix. There are also bass and treble adjustments in its companion app, which you can use to tweak its sound to better suit your preferences and can get loud enough to fill large rooms with sound.

    This smart home speaker offers outstanding voice assistant support, with Alexa built-in, and has no trouble registering your commands from far away and in noisier settings. You can link it to multiple other compatible speakers across your home and to a compatible Denon soundbar to create a home theater setup. Its sleek design also makes it easy to blend in with your home decor, though it isn't very portable since it needs to remain wired to a power outlet to work.

  7. Most Versatile Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    Looking for something more versatile? Check out the Sonos Move. While it doesn't produce bass as deep as the Denon Home 350, it still has a good amount of bass for its size and is more affordable. It's battery-powered, lightweight, and has a built-in handle to help carry it in one hand, making it significantly more portable than larger party speakers on this list, like the JBL PartyBox 310. With its room correction feature enabled, its sound profile is very well-balanced, making it suitable for listening to a wide range of music genres. Its Sonos S2 companion app also features bass and treble adjustments you can use to tweak its sound to your liking.

    This well-built smart speaker also offers outstanding voice assistant support with Alexa and Google Assistant built-in and has little trouble understanding your voice from far away and in noisier rooms. Its battery can last over 10 hours from a single charge, which is great for long listening sessions, though this can vary depending on usage. It's well-built, with an IP56 rating for dust and water resistance that certifies it as protected against direct contact with water for up to three minutes and dust for around two to eight hours. It means you can take it outdoors with you without worrying about it getting wet or dusty.
