Summer is coming. Whether you're off to another country, spending some time at the beach, sipping drinks poolside or down to get muddy at a festival, having a reliable and durable set of Bluetooth speakers on you is a must for any music lover. That's why we've taken a look at some of the best available speakers from our partners at Currys PC World, and because we like you, we’ll save you up to 12% off the listed price of everything here, and let you spread the cost over up to three years.

UE Megablast
We’ll start with the Megablast, partly because it’s a top end speaker and partly because it has the coolest name. This cylindrical speaker has a battery life of up to 16 hours, meaning it’ll do you well over a weekend festival. It’s waterproof for up to 30 minutes at 1m so you’ll not have to worry about taking it to the beach and designed it’s to be extra hardy for those accidental knocks.

It pumps out incredible 360-sound over Bluetooth that fills the room with two tweeters, two active drivers and two passive radiators. It also has built in Amazon Alexa voice controls for easy hands-free control.

JBL Charge 3
The JBL Charge 3 has the honour of being the only entrant on our list not made by Ultimate Ears, mainly because it’s excellent. Up to 20 hours of battery life mean you should never have to worry about it running out on a day trip, you could even use it in the car on the way.

It's waterproof, so you don't have to fret about your mates spilling a drink on it and has a range of over 30 feet. Connecting it to your streaming smartphone or tablet means you can meander around the party, or go play volleyball, with no worries about causing upset. You can also connect several of them together, so you and your friends can make a rave of it if you fancy it.

UE Boom 2
The Boom 2 is small and thin making it a good option for when you’re going out without a bag. There’s a great range of colours to choose from that mean you can really personalise these great Bluetooth wireless speakers.

Sound quality is also excellent, it’s powerfully loud with deep resonant bass. you can pair it with up to 8 other devices so that not only one person has to be the party DJ and it works with Siri and Google Now voice integration, so you don’t even need to be near them to switch songs or pump up the volume – great for just setting up and going off to mingle.

The battery gives you a good 15 hours, so you’ll still have plenty of time to get your groove on if you take this waterproof speaker to the beach.

UE Wonderboom
Like we said, most of the devices on this list come from UE, that’s because when it comes to making durable, waterproof Bluetooth speakers with great sound quality, they’ve got their fingers on the pulse. The lower-cost UE Wonderboom is great for all that.

It’s fully waterproof to 1m which means it’ll survive an accidental drop in the pool, can be paired with another device for double the partying and the battery will last you up to 10 hours on a single charge. On top of all that, this small and super portable speaker manages to pack in two tweeters and two bass drivers for impressively big sound.
