I am looking for a good sounding and robust speaker. The only requirment for the sound is that it has to have good sound and if possible also heavy bass. The speaker cant be much bigger than the boombox.

I had the JBL boombox before but it had some problems so i returned it. It was also pretty price for what it offers imo.
My phone is the Oneplus 6. But i am upgrading it in the future.

The speakers has to be avaliable in Denmark or Amazon.
Max budget is $270.

If i need to add more info plz contact me.

I've had an ION Block Rocker for years and people always comment on its big sound at outdoor parties. It's fugly, but newest generation has updated, more contemporary design. Sony just announced a trio of bigger Bluetooth lugables to add to the one they currently offer. From what I've read, the Soundboks is the SOTA. It's pricey, though.

Check out Oluvsgadgets on Youtube. He has lots of good Bluetooth speaker reviews and he often includes measurements (although not full Spinoramas.) He also includes binaural recordings so you can compare speakers by listening on a good pair of headphones. This usually isn't a great way to do things, but the differences between Bluetooth speakers, being generally lower fidelity than most home/studio speakers, are big enough that you can actually get a decent idea of the sound this way.

Heavy bass and hi-fi... Maybe a Minirig with a sub.
Vifa makes some hi-fi portables, but they are not bass "heavy".
Teufel makes some boomboxes that get good reviews.

Haven't measured it, but subjectively I was very impressed with B&O's Beosound A1. Seemed head and shoulders above others I've heard of similar size/cost (although admittedly I haven't heard that many). And I believe they offer a 30-day free trial in Europe.

I have not seen measurements but I own the UE Megaboom 3. I use it in my garage gym and I really enjoy it for that purpose. If you look, they can be found at a significant discount (at least in the US).

For Bluetooth speakers, Oluv is my hero ;)
I would suggest his comparison website too:

http://switcher.oluvsgadgets.net/

I don't know if he's updating it regularly nowadays, but it's very interesting tool.
BTW I have a Tribit Maxsound plus, great sound but it's not that big.

I have the W-King D8. It's hilarious! lol. Cheap (I paid $90cdn but it's gone down as low as $76 a couple times since). It's loud as hell with solid bass. I use it in the car because my tin can has a really terrible stereo built in. I wouldn't call it "high fidelity" really but it has an appealing tone...pretty thick and great mids. It also has quite amazing battery life. If I use the thing in my bedroom I hardly have to turn it on it's so loud lol.

You could get 2 of them and pair them up stereo-style for some truly pumping party sounds on-the-go!

I've been looking around for a decent BT speaker as well. JBL extreme 2/3 was at the top of my list, but then I came across Harman Kardon Citation 200. Impressive spec, and very classy looking
