Sitting outside and listening to music just go together—but if you don’t have an outdoor speaker setup at home or you’re out and about, you’re going to need a solid Bluetooth speaker. The speakers on your phone simply won’t cut it and no one wants to deal with any wires while they’re roaming (and jamming) about. Personally, I can’t justify spending too much on a portable speaker that’s going to get used outside and probably thrown around in my bag and car. And thankfully, Anker makes an affordable line of speakers that’s perfect if you’re as budget-conscious as I am but still want some quality sound.
Typically, the Anker Soundcore 2 costs around $40, but right now you can get it in three different colors for just $30 at Amazon, making this already-affordable Bluetooth speaker even more budget-friendly. This discount has already been applied to the red and blue colors, but if you want it in black, you’ll have to clip the $10 coupon below the price on the product page.
The Soundcore 2 is a best seller with good reason. In fact, it’s the upgraded version of our favorite affordable portable Bluetooth speaker, which we loved because it’s so simple and reliable. The Soundcore 2 has 24 hours of battery life, easy-to-press buttons, and actually has good sound quality, if its predecessor is any indicator, and you can expect decent bass and treble presence, and plenty of volume to boot.
The best part about this speaker? It’s IPX7 waterproof, which means it can survive submersion in up to 1 meter of water for as long as 30 minutes. That makes this the ideal speaker for to take to the beach, on a boat, or to a pool party without worrying about any splashes or downpours. Heck, this thing could fall in the pool and you could still use it (though we’d advise against an underwater dance party). So not only is it affordable, but it can handle even the clumsiest of music lovers.
This deal is only good until Thursday, June 16, so you have limited time to get a discounted Bluetooth speaker. Believe me, you’ll probably want to break out into a dance party out of excitement after ordering one.
