A Bluetooth speaker enables you to enjoy music with an actual listening experience. It delivers harmonized performance on a close proximity to the listener & the experience does not remain restricted indoors. One can continue the music journey while travelling, at work or home outdoors.
What to look for in a good Bluetooth speaker?
Audio Performance - Look for natural reproduction of sound with clarity in high notes & vocals & deep & rich bass with a considerable range of volume (low to high). Look for sounds being natural at a high level (not shrieking for vocals & string instruments), bass not overpowering at higher volume & fading out in lower volume. Overall look for high fidelity sound at all volume levels.
Portability & Battery Life - For any portable product the footprint matters, how much space it occupies, how heavy it is to carry along with its battery life. That defines the success of a truly portable product. A great battery life is a indispensable support a Bluetooth speaker needs to give you long hours of quality music
Resistance to Weather - A standard Bluetooth speaker should be able to withstand splashes of water, a good one will be in a position to remain unaffected to dust & water.

How important is it to find the weather/water resistance level in Bluetooth Speakers?
It is very important to be aware of the weather/water resistance level in a Bluetooth speaker. A quick guide to the same is here below. Check for IP ratings if you need your bluetooth speaker to be waterproof & dust proof. Also read the specifications of headphones where products are mentioned as splash proof as opposed to waterproof, both cater to different requirements.
Decoding IPX & IP Ratings
IPX is a certification to denote water resistance. The rating varies from IPX0 through to IPX9K presently. IP stands for Ingress Protection and also referred to as international protection. IPX rating is the marking that denotes the level of protection against water & dust.
IPX0: The product offers no special protection from water.
IPX1: Can resist water that drips vertically onto the product.
IPX2: Can resist water that hits the product at a 15° angle or less.
IPX3: Can take water sprays of up to 60°.
IPX4: Is resistant to water splashes from any direction.
IPX5: Can resist a sustained, low-pressure water jet spray.
IPX6: Can resist high-pressure, heavy sprays of water.
IPX6K: Can resist water jets of extremely high pressure. Rarely used.
IPX7: Can be submerged up to 1 meter in water for 30 minutes.
IPX8: Can be submerged deeper than 1 meter. The exact depth is specified by the manufacturer.
IPX9K: Resists high-pressure, high-temperature sprays at close range.
IP0X: The product is not protected against any physical contact or objects.
IP1X: Only protected from objects larger than 50 mm. You won’t accidentally stick your hand into this product, but you can still easily get, say, your finger in. You probably shouldn’t.
IP2X: Protected from any object larger than 12.5 mm. This now includes fingers.
IP3X: Protected from things above 2.5 mm, which includes most tools and thick wires.
IP4X: Protected from anything bigger than 1 mm.
IP5X: Dust resistant. Some dust may get through, but it won’t be enough to damage the product.
IP6X: This product is fully dust tight.
IP Rating consists of two digits (IP65,66, 67, 68 & so on). The first digit indicates how well the substance is safe against solids (refer to dust proofing). The second one involves water resistance (refer to water proofing). The higher the ranking, the greater the security of a product.
Only a product undertaking special tests by a certified, independent firm is legally granted IP rating.
