There’s nothing better than enjoying the sun-filled weather with a barbecue and music in the background, so what are you waiting for? Nowadays, there is a wide range of outdoor speaker systems varying in size and all have been designed to tackle the ever-changing weather whilst still looking stylish.
With so many to choose from, finding one that suits your taste might be a challenge, however, leave your worries behind as we have scoured the internet for the best high-end outdoor speakers currently available on the market — rest assured you’ll find the perfect one soon.
No Bounds Bluetooth Speakers, £49.99
Bluetooth, wireless and featuring up to 10-hour battery life, the No Bounds has a compact size, allowing it to be placed anywhere with subtlety and small enough to easily pack when you next go on a camping adventure.
Water and dust-proof, this speaker has been crafted using the Marley REWIND fabric, REGRIND Silicone, REGRIND Cork and recyclable aluminium. Using cork to create its weightlessness, as it is 50% trapped air, attributes to its low density and buoyancy — you’ll have a difficult time finding an outdoor speaker system that is as light as the No Bounds system.
Tivoli Andiamo, £129.99
Small yet powerful, the Tivoli Andiamo speaker system can extract magnificent sounds that are bound to impress. Designed with a premium feel and build, rest assured that its stylish look will assuredly draw attention.
With 20-hour battery life, the Tivoli Andiamo offers articulate sounds and, with simple controls hidden neatly beneath the leather strap and the ability for Bluetooth pairings, this speaker is perfectly minimalist.
Yamaha NSAW592 All Weather Speakers, £249
Yamaha has never disappointed, as its high sound quality and long-term durability continuously impresses. Its NS-AW592 system has a unique angled cabinet design which allows it to blend into external and interior decor, so it’ll be perfect for any home style.

Elegant, effortless, and an award-winner, the Dali Katch has an excellent track record when it comes to producing high quality speakers and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Stylishly encased in a rounded solid housing that perfectly delivers excellent sound, the Dali Katch is a firm favourite.
Featuring a lengthy battery life of 24-hours, this speaker offers sublime dynamics and is ideal for the outdoors. With two audio profiles — ‘clear’ for the majority of listening situations and ‘warm’ for music genres that require a little more bass — and easy connectivity, it comes as no surprise to see that this is an award-winning speaker system.
Sonos Move, £398.96
Considered to be one of the best in the market, the Sonos Move outdoor speaker doubles up as a portable Bluetooth speaker. With 10-hours of use, this may not have the longest battery life in the list but it certainly has one of the best sounds, as its crisp dialogue and rich bass is incomparable.
On top of excellent sound, the Sonos Move is also equipped with smart features.

As if this wasn’t enough, the Sonos’ Auto TruePlay technology uses microphones to automatically adapt the speaker to its surroundings, so you’ll always have perfect sound wherever you go.
Bose 251 Environmental Speakers, £499
Bose is notorious for excellent sound systems, and rightfully so as they never disappoint. These are perhaps one of the best wall-mount outdoor speakers we have encountered, as its balanced stereo sound travels over a wide area, thereby delivering a refined sound perfect for your outdoor space.
Guaranteed to withstand harsh weather — this includes snow, rain, salt and even extreme temperatures — these speakers will surely withstand the test of time. Simply mount the speakers to your exterior walls, connect to your stereo components and enjoy high-quality sound in your garden.
