If you want to throw a memorable party, great sounds is one of the top priorities. You’ll need a speaker that not only sounds good but can get loud enough to fill large, crowded spaces. Luckily, you don’t have to rely on large and heavy sound systems to do this anymore. Leading tech brands such as JBL, Ultimate Ears, Sony and Panasonic, have stepped it up and created amazing portable party speakers that do this and more. We’ve gone ahead and compiled our picks for the Top 5 Portable Party Speakers!

JBL PartyBox On-The-Go Portable Party Speaker

Portable, powerful and ready to party, the JBL PartyBox On-The-Go can take on both house and on-the-go parties. It has 100 Watts of powerful JBL Pro Sound, huge versatility, incredible RGB light shows, and now the ability to take the party anywhere (it even has a handy shoulder strap). Indoors or out, this PartyBox delivers crisp highs, pure mids, and heavy bass—with Bass Boost to keep the music amping. It has everything you need to get the party started including great audio, mic and guitar inputs, two JBL wireless microphones (in APAC regions), and even a bottle opener!

A sturdy design and IPX4 splashproof protection mean it’ll hold up at parties – even if it’s by the beach or poolside. You can connect to the PartyBox effortlessly with Bluetooth, USB or AUX connectivity. Link it with up to two compatible speakers with TWS (True Wireless Stereo), creating an epic speaker sound system.

JBL PartyBox Encore Essential Portable Speaker

If you’re after something a bit smaller, JBL’s PartyBox Encore Essential is a great choice. It features 100W of that amazing JBL Original Pro Sound, deep bass, and built-in RGB LED lights that will sync to the beat and put on a cool light show. If you want to be in control of the show, you can use the PartyBox app to customise your music and light show colours to create the perfect vibe. 

Partying by the beach or pool? That’s no problem. The PartyBox Encore Essential is IPX4 splash proof so you never have to worry about the party getting too wet or wild. This PartyBox is TWS compatible (so you can pair it up with other compatible speakers), and has Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity, and a six-hour rechargeable battery.

Samsung Sound Tower Portable Speakers

Samsung is pretty new to the party speaker scene but they’ve entered with a boom! With a high-power output of up to 240W, their portable Sound Tower speakers will fill up any space with loud and crisp 3D sound. For some extra oomph, you can turn on Bass Booster to intensify all the lower frequencies and have an even more powerful sound experience.  In fact, you can take control over more aspects of the sound, as well as the built-in RGB LED Party Lights from the dedicated Sound Tower App. With just a few taps of a screen, you can control various light and sound effects, and even the EQ settings.

The Sound Towers have a large capacity built-in battery so the party can pump even without access to a power source. Depending on what model you choose, you can get up to 18 hours of play on a full charge. With an IPX5 water resistance rating, these speakers are durable enough for taking outdoors too!

Ultimate Ears HYPERBOOM Portable Speaker

If you want to go BIG on sound, go for the Ultimate Ears HYPERBOOM. As UE’s biggest, loudest, BOOMiest speaker yet, it delivers truly epic sound with extreme bass and adaptive EQ. The powerful precision woofers, huge passive radiators, and soft-dome tweeters deliver a high-fidelity listening experience - so you get vibrant, lifelike audio at any volume. The adaptive EQ works by reading the room (or patio, or rooftop) and automatically balancing the sound until it's perfect for your space.

We all know how it can get at parties – multiple people wanting input on the tunes. The good news is, HYPERBOOM lets friends play music from four devices and switch between them with no pause to the music (or the party). You can use the source selector button on the speaker or use the phone app to instantly switch devices. If things get a bit sloshy at your party, it’s all good – the HYPERBOOM is IPX4 Water Resistant to withstand spills and splashes. With its loud powerful sound, sleek silhouette, and pull-out strap, the HYPERBOOM will rock any event, anywhere-from the living room dance-off to the rooftop rager. It’ll last you up to 24 hours on a single charge, with a recharge time of just 2.6 hours.

Panasonic TMAX20 Portable Party Speaker

Some would say that a party isn’t a party without loud music shaking the house. If you resonate with that, you’ll love Panasonic’s TMAX20 Portable Speaker. It features 300W of house-shaking power thanks to Panasonic’s Airquake Bass. The unique design of its bass system amplifies the bass sound to a level that can be physically felt. It’ll rock the house, that’s for sure. It also features RGB LED lights that will illuminate and sync to the bass and music, adding colour and vibes to the space it’s in.

The TMAX20 features two mic jacks, so you can plug-in microphones for singing and karaoke with family and friends. Need a hand with your singing before the liquid courage kicks in? Functions like Vocal Cancel, Key Control, Tempo Control, BGM Level Control and Mic EQ will be your friend! The echo function also produces great karaoke singing effects so you can really get into the groove. The Panasonic TMAX20 is a great value speaker, offering everything you need from house-thumping music and deep bass, to light shows and karaoke, and up to 10 hours of battery life. 

Sony XG500 Portable Party Speaker

Sony’s XG500 Portable Party Speaker – while smaller and lighter in weight – is built-to-last and great for outdoor use. It has a durable exterior and IP66 water resistant and Dustproof rating, leaving this speaker ready for just about anything. That means that you can listen by the pool, at the park or even at the beach. The X-Balanced Speaker Unit, High-efficiency Tweeter and passive radiators work together to give you a powerful sound that's perfect outdoors. With the XG500, you'll be able to take a Powerful Party Sound with you anywhere and with built-in lighting, you can take a little atmosphere too.

If you like partying all night/morning long, you’ll love this! The XG500 packs a huge 30 hours of battery when fully charged – it’ll play and play, so you can keep on partying without worrying about the tunes suddenly stopping.
