Music is a great way to distract and entertain yourself when you’re traveling alone. Sometimes, it’s not convenient or the most enjoyable to have your earphones plugged into your ears when you want to have your own dance party. In those cases, here are the best bluetooth speakers for solo travelers.
Your New Favorite Travel Accessory
Traveling alone, you’ll almost always need to rely on yourself for all your wants and needs. In the case of music, it’s important to make sure you bring along a speaker that won’t be deterred by the elements. Find a speaker that’s waterproof, or at least water-resistant, and one that’s durable enough to handle tumbles ahead of your next trip.
Don’t Let the Good Times End
Range is always important on bluetooth speakers. The last thing you want to interrupt your dance party is if you simply move away from your speaker.
Bring Your Gear Anywhere
Portability is an important factor for any travel item. That goes for speakers, too. When out and about, it’s nice to have a portable speaker that can latch onto a backpack strap for access to high-quality sound while allowing you to keep your wits about you.
Time to Make Some New Friends
Some speakers are notorious for having terrible bass. That eliminates half the enjoyable experience of music. Make sure you find a speaker that eliminates this concern.
When Work Inevitably Calls
When traveling solo, you can’t go wrong with having a speaker that can double as a speaker phone. This lets you get more done with your free hands while being able to maintain a relatively easy conversation.
