We think that all of us can agree that no party is complete without some form of music. However, unless you already have an existing speaker setup ready to go, then you are going to need your own speakers to really make the party one worth remembering.

At the same time, if you are like most people, then you don’t know the first thing about speakers. That is where we hope to come in handy with this article.

As you can probably guess just from the title, this article is intended to look at the best party speakers that you can find on the market right now.

If you don’t feel like reading all 5 of our product reviews, we will cut to the chase and say to get the JBL PartyBox 300 Party Speaker.

For the first review on our best party speakers list, we have the very appropriately named JBL PartyBox 300 Party Speaker.

Given the main purpose of this list, it only makes sense that we would be reviewing a speaker that is literally called the PartyBox. This speaker is fairly well-made and as the name suggests, it is the perfect option for just about any sized party.

In terms of sound quality, this speaker does a pretty good job overall. It isn’t perfect, but it is able to play music loudly, at good quality, and it can cover a very large area.

At the end of the day, there isn’t a whole more that you can ask for or expect from a party speaker. It even has some inputs for plugging in things like instruments or microphones if you want to do something like karaoke or some sort of live band playing.

Portability is aided by the fact that this speaker actually features a fairly strong battery in it. So, you are able to place it in areas where there isn’t an outlet to support it or anything like that.

While it may not sound like a super big feature overall, we will say that we also found the lighting effects on this speaker to be really good for helping to really improve the atmosphere at certain kinds of parties. Like we said, this is an extremely small feature, but it does wonders in the right circumstances.

Our biggest complaint with the JBL PartyBox 300 Party Speaker is the simple fact that despite all the good things that we have said so far about this speaker (and this is a pretty good speaker overall, don’t get us wrong) it just isn’t the best sounding option on this list.

If your goal when reading this list is to get the absolute best sounding speaker system possible, then this should probably remain a second-choice option.

  • Pros
  • Has plenty of microphone and instrument inputs.
  • Has a very high sound range.
  • Decent music quality.
  • Colorful light display adds an extra layer of atmosphere to any party.
  • Fully battery powered.
  • Cons
  • Not the absolute best sounding speaker around.

Pyle Portable Bluetooth PA Speaker System

The next speaker that we want to take a look at as per of this review list is the Pyle Portable Bluetooth PA Speaker System.

This is an extremely large speaker system that is very well-made and that comes with a wide variety of great features. It is the perfect option for those of you who have a ton of space to play around with and who don’t mind finding space for this absolute beast of a speaker system.

As most of you can probably tell just from the general appearance of this speaker system, it sounds absolutely amazing.

With such a large speaker case, it is able to fit in really large, advanced sound tech that helps to project high-quality sound across a decent area. This helps to make the Pyle speaker system one of the better options on our list if you happen to be in the market for the absolute loudest speaker possible.

It also has some other good features that really help to make it much better for use as a party speaker. For starters, it has a fully equipped karaoke setup. It also is fully USB and Bluetooth compatible, which helps when it comes to playing music.

An issue that you are likely going to run into when it comes to this speaker system has to do with its immense size.

While the size of this speaker does bring with it quite a few advantages (as we said above, the speaker does a great job of projecting audio), it also brings with it some very obvious and apparent flaws that absolutely need to be mentioned.

For starters, there is the fact that the larger size of this speaker can make it a real hassle to transport. If you need to move this speaker around a room or a house you will see what we mean.

  • Pros
  • USB and Bluetooth compatible.
  • One of the best speakers for large parties.
  • Has a great karaoke setup.
  • High-quality sound.
  • Cons
  • Very big.
  • Might take up a bit too much space for some.

TENMIYA 40W Portable Bluetooth Speakers

Sometimes you want to throw a party on a low budget, but to do so, you need a relatively cheap speaker. However, you might not think that such a thing exists.

After all, speakers, especially ones that are good enough to be used for a raging party, tend not to be “inexpensive.” But we are glad to say that you would be mistaken, as evidenced by the TENMIYA 40W Portable Bluetooth Speakers.

These speakers are the perfect option for those who want to throw a big, raucous party without actually spending too much of their own money. While we will be honest and say right from the start that this isn’t the best quality speaker on this list, its combination of decent audio quality at an extremely affordable price helps to make it a natural addition to this list.

In terms of price, this is easily one of the cheapest options on our review list. The entire speaker set, and all its extras only come out to a price of around $50, which is not a lot when compared to basically any of the other options that we have reviewed so far. At the same time, this isn’t actually a bad sounding speaker. It sounds decent for such a relatively cheap speaker.

There are some issues with these speakers that we do feel the need to mention before moving on with the review.

First off, there is the fact that these speakers just don’t sound anywhere near as good as some of the other ones that we have looked at so far on our review list. This probably isn’t much of a surprise to anyone, given its price, but we still wanted to note it down.

Secondly, there is the fact that we have serious questions about the overall durability of these speakers, given the price of them. Both of these factors combine to make the TENMIYA 40W Portable Bluetooth Speakers a better option for situations where you need some speakers for a one-time event (a wedding, a bachelor party, an especially big birthday party, etc.) and where you probably won’t need to reuse them. Those looking for permanent party speakers may want to look elsewhere.

  • Pros
  • One of the cheapest options on this list.
  • Great for one-time events.
  • Decent sound quality for an inexpensive speaker set.
  • Cons
  • Sound quality isn’t on par with the pricier speaker options.
  • Not a particularly durable or long-lasting speaker.

BUGANI M118 Portable Bluetooth Speakers

If you don’t have a ton of space to work with at your party, then the speaker system that you are going to want to consider going with is the BUGANI M118 Portable Bluetooth Speakers.

As the name makes clear, this is an extremely portable speaker system. While there are other reasons why it deserves to be included on this list, it is hard to deny that the primary appeal of the speaker is just how compact this speaker is.

We know that we talked quite a bit about this speaker’s size in the intro to this review list, but we want to talk about it again briefly because this really is one of the best aspects of the speaker system.

With its carrying handle on top and its relatively small size, this speaker can easily be moved around even very large spaces with ease; it also means that it doesn’t take up a ton of space either. Obviously, this makes the BUGANI M118 the absolute best option on our entire review list.

But of course, this is still a best party speakers list and you can’t ignore the importance of sound quality when it comes to picking out a good speaker system. The BUGANI M118 certainly doesn’t sound bad. While you can find better sounding speakers out there, this one is more than good enough for use in a party.

One issue with this particular speaker set is the fact that it isn’t particularly large. While that may not sound like a big deal at first, it does result in the speaker probably being a bit too quiet for truly large parties. On the other hand, the smaller size of this speaker set makes it a good option for people who are looking to host a smaller get together like a small private party or a dinner party.

  • Pros
  • Nice carrying handle on top.
  • Relatively compact size.
  • Decent sound design.
  • Not too pricey.
  • Cons
  • Could afford to be a bit louder.

Goldwood Bluetooth Light Display Speaker Set

The final speaker set that we want to take a look at the Goldwood Bluetooth Light Display Speaker Set. This is another very good speaker set that deserves to be included on this list because of the sheer sound quality that it brings to the table. If you want your party to have the absolute best sound quality possible, then you really can’t go wrong with this speaker set.

We can’t say enough how amazing this speaker set is from a sound perspective. With a 1000 watts of power and really great sun-woofers and good tweeters, this speaker delivers extremely good sound quality.

We know that getting studio quality music quality from a party speaker isn’t the most important thing ever, but it is hard to deny that it really adds to the party atmosphere to have great sounding music.

In addition to sounding good, the Goldwood, also has a ton of other great features that we absolutely need to mention as well. For example, there are a ton of different sound options that you can play with to create exactly the right sound profile for whatever type of party you happen to be hosting.

Before we end off both this review and our review list, we do want to talk about the size of this speaker. While it isn’t huge, especially when compared to a lot of the other entries on this list, we do have to say that it is certainly on the bigger side.

However, it is made even more annoying by the fact that it is also quite a difficult speaker set to move. There aren’t any carrying handles or anything to make it easier to move, which is a hassle because of how heavy it is as well.

  • Pros
  • Lots of different sound options.
  • Great sound output.
  • Works for all types of music and parties.
  • Easy to hook up instruments and microphones too.
  • Can project sound really well.
  • Cons
  • Another very bulky speaker set.
  • Quite a heavy speaker.

How To Pick Out The Right Speakers For A Party

If you think way back to the start of our article, we said that most people (and we still think that this is a fair statement) don’t really have a good idea of what goes into picking out a good speaker system.

While we couldn’t really go over what makes a speaker system good in our review list, we aim to rectify that in this follow-up part of our article. In this buying guide, we will be explaining everything that you should be considering when it comes to buying a good speaker system. This includes how to judge quality, quality of life features, and other very important things.

Speaker Size

The first thing that we will talk about is the size of the speakers that you are using. As you probably picked up on from our best party speakers list, this can be a bit of a double edged sword when it comes to buying a speaker.

On the one hand, we are confident that none of you out there want to deal with an overly large speaker set. They can take up a ton of space, are a hassle to move, and finding a place for them can often cause a lot of headaches. On the other hand, there is generally a direct correlation between sound quality and the size of the speaker.

A larger speaker is going to have more room for higher-quality equipment, which means that it sounds better and that it is better able to project sound across a large area.

Sadly, there isn’t a ton of guidance that we can give on this issue as it depends entirely on your own personal preferences and living space. You have to decide which speaker best balances sound quality and loudness with what size you can actually support.

We will say that generally speaking, the larger the speaker, the better. While one can often find miniature “party” speakers on places like Amazon (and indeed, we reviewed one such speaker), they generally aren’t all that good except for small, intimate parties.

Sound Quality

Sound quality, as we mentioned a few times during the course of our review list, can be quite a tricky thing to figure out. The issue is that realistically, if you are buying a speaker just for parties, then you don’t really need to worry too much about the actual sound quality of the speaker set.

At the same time, no one wants to have their party ruined with substandard music. So, while you don’t really have to place a huge emphasis on sound quality, you should at least look for a decent sounding speaker to make sure that your party has exactly the right atmosphere.

Ease of Use and Mobility

Another thing that we really think is important when picking out a speaker for any party is ease of use. You really don’t want a speaker that is difficult to use or tricky to get setup; and you especially don’t want that if you happen to already have an existing audio setup that you use.

Likewise, you also want, at least depending on the area that you are hosting your party in, a speaker set that is easy to move around. In particular, you want a speaker that is some combination of lightweight and that preferably has a handle of some sort. While this may not sound all that simple at first, it definitely helps and makes your life a lot easier, trust us.
