The 7 Best Bluetooth Speakers For Bass - Spring 2023 Reviews

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 110 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, the best-sounding Bluetooth speakers, and the best cheap speakers.

  1. Best Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    The best Bluetooth speaker for bass that we've tested is the JBL PartyBox 310. This large and powerful speaker brings out all the thump and rumble in your favorite tunes, bringing the party right into the comfort of your home. Bass lovers can take advantage of all the extra customization tools available, too, including a Bass Boost feature to pump up the boom, as well as a more traditional graphic EQ to switch up its sound across the range. Even with all that energy in the bass range, vocals and other instruments are still clear and accurate in the mix, ensuring a great sound quality with all your audio content.

    As its name implies, this speaker is designed with parties in mind. As a result, it boasts a lot of cool features that you don't find with more traditional speakers, including microphone and guitar inputs for when you want to host your next sing-along. The circular RGB lights on the front of the speaker are customizable, too, so you can set the mood with the right colors and patterns. Karaoke and DJ settings are available in the speaker's companion app, too. If you're looking for a more simple Bluetooth speaker, it's probably not worth it to get such a premium model, but if you want the best of the best, this speaker really has it all.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    The Sony SRS-XG500 is another awesome party speaker that's available at a more affordable price. Again, it has no trouble bringing out the deep thump and rumble in the bass, especially with bass-heavy EDM and hip-hop tracks. Given its premium design, it's no surprise that it comes with a lot of handy customization tools, too, such as a MEGA BASS preset to add to the boom in the mix. There's a graphic EQ in its companion app, too, handy if you prefer more emphasis across the range. Since it's a smaller alternative to the JBL PartyBox 310, it's easier to take with you on the go, too, with a built-in handle to carry it from one room to the next.

    It may be smaller, but this speaker is still mighty. You get access to microphone and guitar inputs, just like with the JBL, and the RGB lights are also customizable for a more ambient experience. It offers a great sound quality and a stylish design, too. 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 with lots of neat add-ons to make your next event 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 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, 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, 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 bring your music everywhere you go, and the over eight-hour battery life lets you enjoy long listening sessions without interruption. It's small and lightweight and is rated IPX7 for water resistance, which helps protect it if you use it outdoors. It doesn't get 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

    Home speakers are a great option if you only plan to use your speaker within the walls of your home. Many offer built-in voice assistant support for hands-free control, as well as sleek and stylish designs to match your decor. The Denon Home 350 is the best for bass that we've tested. You can use this large speaker on its own or as part of your home theater setup with a compatible Denon soundbar, and it brings out all the thump and rumble in your favorite movies and music. Plus, you can adjust the bass levels through its companion app to add even more punch to the overall sound.

    Thanks to built-in Alexa support, you can control this speaker's functions using only your voice. Whether you're close to the device or further away, it has no trouble picking up your commands, and it does well in noisier environments. Plus, the microphone mute button gives you the option of privacy when you want it. You can even link it with other compatible Denon speakers in its app, meaning you can spread sound throughout multiple rooms of your home. When it comes to home speakers, this device packs a punch.

  7. Most Versatile Bluetooth Speaker For Bass

    While most of the picks on our list are designed as party speakers, some other options on the market offer a solid bass performance in a more versatile build. The Sonos Move is the best we've tested, and it's a smart speaker that's designed to be used both in and out of the home. With a sleek design, it blends right in with your home decor. Plus, the built-in handle makes it easy to bring it with you if you want to listen in your backyard. There's even an IP56 rating for dust and water resistance to keep it safe against the elements.

    This speaker's sound quality makes it suitable for listening to different audio content. Bass lovers will appreciate the deep thump and rumble in the bass especially. Bass-heavy genres like EDM and hip-hop reproduce with plenty of thump and rumble, and the bass adjustment feature lets you add more or less punch to the mix. 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.
