January 28, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Bluetooth speakers are amazing, you can connect them to your TV (some, not all), your laptop, or your smartphone and use it for watching videos or listening to music. It really changes your listening experience. Not all Bluetooth speakers are the same though. They come in different sizes, price ranges and even have different specs. Here’s out list of the best Bluetooth Speakers under $100 for the month of January.

JBL Flip 3

This one from JBL comes in just under $100, and brings a ton of music to your ears for that price. It does do 360-degree sound, making for a great experience. You can connect up to 3 devices to the JBL Flip 3 and have it remember all of those devices, so you won’t need to pair it again later on.

UE ROLL 360

ue-roll

Ultimate Ears or UE, is part of the Logitech brand and has put out some pretty amazing Bluetooth Speakers in recent years. The UE Roll 360 makes our list, since it’s under $100, and it’s rather unique. It’s pretty small, but has big sound. Not only that, but it can float in a pool seeing as it is light and it’s also water-proof.

UE Mini Boom

Here’s another option from UE, their Mini Boom. This is their smaller speaker, but don’t let the size fool you. It still puts out a great deal of sound. Coming in even lower then the ROLL 360 above, the Mini Boom is definitely portable and affordable. It can be paired with other Mini Boom speakers and also Boom or Mega Boom speakers for even better sound.

Braven 705 Bluetooth Speaker

Braven has made tons of great Bluetooth Speakers over the years, and the 705 is one of the few that are actually under $100. The Braven 705 is a decently sized Bluetooth Speaker, and it provides some amazing sound. With some deep bass as well as clear mids, something every audiophile will want. It’s also IPX5 water-proof.

Bose SoundLink Color

The Bose SoundLink Color is another great, yet small Bluetooth Speaker. Bose is known for their great audio quality, and if you’ve ever used one of their Bluetooth speakers or headphones, you’ll definitely know what to expect with this speaker here. As the name states, the Bose SoundLink Color is available in a slew of colors, although we’re a bit biased on this red version shown above.

The Sony SRSX2 Bluetooth Speaker here not only gives you some great sound in a somewhat small size, but it also includes NFC pairing. Allowing you to easy tap your smartphone to the speaker and pair it using NFC. It’s also water-proof, so you can take it over to the pool with you or into the shower without worrying about it.

This speaker from TaoTronics is a pretty amazing one. I actually have this one on my desk and use it daily. It has some amazing sound – especially for its size – as well as looking pretty slick in any set up. This TaoTronics Bluetooth speaker touts around 10 hours of battery life as well.

Who doesn’t love a Bluetooth speaker made of Zebra Wood? Not only does it look cool, but it sounds cool too. The speaker is about 3-inches tall, and has around 10 hours of battery life from continuous playback. It also features a powerful 5W driver inside to give you a great experience when it comes to listening to music.

Fugoo Style

The Fugoo Style caught our radar due to its amazing battery life. While most of the others on this list have around 10 hours of battery life, Fugoo touts that it can last around 40 hours of continuous playback. Talk about lasting all day and then some. The Fugoo Style is also pretty rugged, always a great feature to have.

JBL Pulse

jbl-pulse

The JBL Pulse is one of my favorite Bluetooth speakers, due to the colorful pulsing action that’s going on when playing music. It can be customized pretty heavily as well for those that want to change up the colors. The battery lasts around 10-12 hours of continuous playback as well.
