The Smallest Wearable Bluetooth Speakers and How They Compare


We’ve spent weeks researching our total meta-review of Bluetooth speakers, and we’ve done a comparison of a few top brands.

But we think it would also be worthwhile to make a complete chart of the very smallest and lightest Bluetooth speakers out there, sorted by size.

In the table below we start with the very lightest speakers and then move up by weight. You’ll also find the dimensions, waterproofing, and a few notes on their features (such as clips/hooks, battery life, etc.).

We’ve included all very small and light (less than 11 ounces) speakers that are currently on the market, as well as for comparison a few of the larger speakers that we highly recommend and have previously discussed.

We have another version of this table for shoppers in the USA who prefer grams and centimeters.

Notes

Compatibility: This is thankfully not an issue with modern Bluetooth speakers; all can connect to Android, Windows, and Apple phones as well as to tablets, computers and laptops that have Bluetooth (most do).

Waterproof ratings: The top rating is IPX7, which indicates that the speaker is fully submersible in water. This is a specific legal guarantee.
