Bang & Olufsen Beosound A1 (2nd generation)

B&O Beosound A1

B&O


While the B&O Beosound A1’s elegant design makes it seem like it should not go anywhere near water or sand, the speaker is actually an excellent pool or beach-day companion. That’s because it’s IP67 certified. That means that it’s built to offer total protection from sand and dust, and can be submerged in water for 30 minutes, at a depth of up to 1 meter. It boasts battery life of up to 18 hours. Personalize its sound profile via its built-in Amazon Alexa and app support.

“I’ve been using Bose products for over a decade and recently I tried a pair of B&O headphones and immediately noticed the difference,” a verified customer of the speaker wrote on Amazon. “This is my first B&O Bluetooth speaker and it certainly delivered.”

If you’re seeking a versatile, budget-friendly, waterproof speaker that’s super easy to travel with, consider the JBL Clip 4. It’s small enough to fit in your palm. It has a built-in clip, so you can attach it to a tree, your beach bag and more. The Clip 4 comes in six hues, and offers 10 hours of playtime on a single charge. It’s currently marked down $ 30 on Amazon.

“It’s not going to rattle any windows, but the bass coming out of this thing is a lot better than I expected,” an Amazon reviewer wrote. “I was expecting it to be tinny like most small speakers.”

JBL Clip 4, $ 50 (reduced from $ 80)

For an even-cheaper option, consider the well-reviewed JBL Clip 3. It’s available in an even wider variety of colors than the JBL Clip 4, but has only 3.3 watts (compared to the JBL Clip 4’s 5 watts).
