There are some speakers that won’t work with the Echo Dot.
To save you from accidentally purchasing something that you would have to send back, I’ve compiled this list of great speakers that work seamlessly with Amazon’s amazing personal assistant.
From budget to ultra high end and everything in between here are the seven best speakers for the Echo Dot.
1. Editors Choice - UE Wonderboom
About: The UE Wonderboom is our choice for the best speaker for the Echo Dot.
The main reason we chose it as our number one is its versatility. You can put this thing anywhere you please. In a living room, in a shower, in the pool… anywhere!
It’s IPX7 waterproof rated which means you can submerge it in up to 3.3 feet of water for a half an hour, pull it out, and it will still work like a champ. That means that showers are no problem.
If you have multiple Echo Dots setup like me, you can easily play music in the bathroom while getting ready or cleaning up.
Features at a glance
Another thing we liked is that you can pair two of them together for stereo sound. You can put two of them close together on a headboard for example and get great audio.
Another option would be to put one in the kitchen and one in the living room for a more even sound throughout the house. It has a 100-foot range.
It also allows you to pair up to 8 devices to the speaker. While you can only stream one device at a time, this comes in handy when you want to pair another device like a smartphone so you can quickly play a song or youtube video on the speakers.
Sound quality is pretty good, but you aren’t going to get a ton of bass out of these speakers.
Mids and highs are , but it isn’t exactly going to shake the house.
The charge time is also quite long if you don’t have them plugged in all the time. 5.5 hours. That isn’t great.
VERDICT: These are one of the best speakers you can get in the $50-$100 range. It's loud enough and won’t get distorted at high volumes.
Overall, good speaker, sounds good, looks good, and feels solid...It’s versatile so you can put it anywhere in the house that you want, and when you’re not using it with your Amazon Echo Dot you can take it with you because of it’s rugged design.
2. Best For 360 Degree Sound - Bose SoundLink Revolve
Bose SoundLink Revolve
About: If you’re looking for 360 degree sound along with deep rich, impressive sounding bass, then the Bose Revolve is absolutely the way to go.
This speaker sounds fantastic…
That’s because it comes equipt with a passive radiator (the same technology used in loudspeakers but with a lot more bass in this case) and excellent omnidirectional sound.
Features at a glance
It has deep heavy bass, and the mids and highs are crystal clear. (As a side note if you want the best bass response I would recommend placing this speaker close to a wall for a fuller sound).
Although you can set this up wirelessly, the best configuration is to plug your Echo Dot directly into the back of the unit.
That’s because there can be a bit of Bluetooth lag with the Revolve. Also, you avoid any pairing issues you might have with the Dot if you plug it into the back.
The Bluetooth range is also a bit lacking here. While many of the speakers on this list will top out at 66-100 feet, the Revolve will only stretch to about 33 feet. Might be a problem if you want to put the speaker outside and control it with a dot in a far bedroom or the like.
VERDICT: Overall, this is one of the best sounding Bluetooth speakers on the market period. If you are looking to up the sound quality of your Dot, you can’t go wrong here.
To sum up… This speaker is FANTASTIC!! Until you listen to it, you wouldn’t think such an excellent sound could come out of such a small speaker. Bright, crisp, sharp tones. Well worth the price.
3. Best Budget Dot Speaker - Anker Soundcore
About: The SoundCore by Anker gets our vote for the best budget speaker for the Echo Dot.
While it is the budget option, it does have a couple of unique advantages that I’ll discuss in a bit.
But first, let’s talk about sound.
In general, the sound is decent. At 6 watts of power, it can’t compete with the other speakers on this list.
Features at a glance
You will get better sound out of purchasing a the Dots older sister, Echo. However, if you buy a dot and an Anker SoundCore, it will only cost you around $90 while an Echo will cost you almost twice as much.
In general, you will want to hook the Dot directly into the SoundCores aux port. That’s because when using Bluetooth the Anker will automatically power off and you will have to pair it every time you want to use it.
You can use it wirelessly if you want to. If for example you have your Dot in the bedroom and want to cook something while listening to a podcast you can take the Anker into the kitchen with no problems.
(Optionally, I have an Echo remote that I use while in the kitchen to control the Dot without having to go into the bedroom… or yell VERY loudly).
Two distinct advantages of this speaker are its range and battery life. While that won’t matter most of the time, if you are having a party you can move the Anker speaker up to 66 feet away from the Dot so you can listen to your favorite party tunes.
It also has an amazing battery life. 24 hours. That insane!
If you want to go portable, you can purchase a battery for the Echo Dot and take it fishing or on a boat or camping or... You get the idea
VERDICT: All in all the sound quality is crisp at low and higher volumes. You will be able to fill smaller rooms with sound, no problem. You can plug it directly into the Dot for continuous use or use it wirelessly on a special occasion.
4. Best At Loud Volumes - UE MegaBoom
About: he UE MegaBoom by Logitech is the UE Wonderbooms beefier, older brother.
With 36 watts of power, it easily outperforms the Roll, but you do pay for the sound upgrade. It’s about three times the price.
The mids and highs are great, and the upper end of the bass spectrum sounds fantastic.
The bass doesn’t sound as deep as some of the other speakers in this guide, but unless you are a bass head, you won’t notice much of a difference.
Features at a glance
The MegaBoom has all of the advantages of the Roll. You can pair up to two of these speakers at a time wirelessly.
I haven’t tested it, but I would imagine that running two of these at a time would rattle the whole house.
It’s also waterproof. It wouldn’t be very practical to hang this in your shower because of the size, but if you want to take it to the lake or the swimming pool, it does float.
The battery life is also great at 20 hours at 80% volume.
It has a Bluetooth 4.0 radio so you can also control the unit up to 100 feet away from your Dot.
VERDICT: This is for someone looking for a (much) better sound. The low-end bass is a little lacking but not noticeable unless you’re an audiophile.
5. Best Portable Echo Dot Speaker - GGMM D6 Portable
GMM D6 Portable
About: We tested a handful of portable Echo dot speakers, and even though we had never heard of GGMM, it’s the one that sounded the best.
The echo dot connects and fastens to the top of the speaker enclosure and runs for around 8 hours before needing a charge.
Keep in mind that you will still need a wifi connection for your Echo Dot to work but the portability factor here is really useful.
Features at a glance
You can listen to music in the backyard, move it to the kitchen when you are cooking, or take it with you to the living room to control your Fire TV with your voice.
One downside is that this is NOT a Bluetooth speaker. You will need to connect your dot, or if you want to use your smartphone for music, you will have to get an aux cable and connect it directly to the unit via the aux port.
The volume is quite loud, and it can also be turned down to low volume for night listening which was a problem with some of the other portable speakers as they ran at a constant high volume.
VERDICT: Great overall speaker for the Echo Dot.
6. Best Power Speaker For The Dot - Harman Kardon Aura
Harman Kardon Aura
About: This speaker is very cool looking, and the sound output is just awesome.
If you are looking for a more powerful speaker to hook up to your Echo Dot, then this is the one to get.
Before I go on, I want to quickly address why there are so many negative reviews on Amazon for this product.
It’s pretty much because Harman Kardon created two different versions of this speaker.
One with WiFi connectivity and one without.
Features at a glance
There was some confusion as to which one people were purchasing… entirely Harmon Kardon's fault but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a great speaker.
To avoid the confusion for you dear reader... just click the link above, and you will be taken to the correct product which is the Bluetooth-only version.
Ok with that out of the way, let me talk about why this unit is so great.
First, it’s a badass, bass thumping, don’t turn it up too loud unless you want the cops called, super speaker.
One downside to using it with the Echo Dot is that if you’re jamming out with the volume too loud, your Dot might not respond to you. You will have to manually turn it down so that Alexa can hear you again.
Second, it, in my opinion, is really different and fresh looking. Especially at night in dim light.
If you want to get creative, you can shine a Hue Bloom directly at the Aura for a unique look with millions of different color possibilities.
VERDICT: All in all the sound will fill the room. It has fantastic highs and room-thumping bass. Does not disappoint. Be aware that you might need to turn this speaker down at times for your Echo Dot to respond to you.
7. Best Ultra High End Speakers for the Echo Dot - Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin
Harman Kardon Aura
About: We didn’t want to leave this list without discussing an ultra high-end speaker option for the Echo Dot.
And to that end… The Bower Wilkins Zeppelin wireless speaker is expensive… and amazing.
It comes packed with a six-inch subwoofer, two 3 ½ inch mid-range drivers and two one inch double dome tweeters.
The stereo separation is best in class and soundstage is phenomenal. Left, right, front and back all sound clear and fantastic.
You have many connection options, but for our use, It’s best to plug the Dot directly into the back aux port.
Features at a glance
This speaker is by no means portable. Where you place, it is where it’s going to be.
This is a pricey speaker, but the quality is what you'd expect for the price. Bass is deep and crisp. Highs and Mids ring out clean and bright throughout the room.
VERDICT: If you are looking for a high-end Echo Dot speaker, then this is hands down the very best one to get.
8. Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II
Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speacker II
About: The Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II is a revamped version of the original SoundLink Mini- a model that really hit a home run in terms of build quality and sound performance between 2013 and mid-2015.
The new model was released in June 2015 and sought to address a few drawbacks that SoundLink Mini’s fans highlighted including the lack of a built-in microphone and a relatively lower battery rating. This speaker not only fixed these issues gracefully, but it went ahead to bring a few additional features that have really moved the needle in its overall performance.
Is it the best Bluetooth speaker in town? Well, if you are in the market for a Bluetooth speaker with terrific bass and one that works with Echo Dot, the SoundLink Mini II is all yours. In our opinion though, this model is a little bit ancient now compared to the latest releases and lacks several features that we’d really want to see in a modern-day speaker. We’ll talk more about these in a few minutes.
Features at a glance
Construction design and portability
Similar to its predecessor, the Mini II has a tank-like build construction featuring a smoothly curved aluminum shell and a small size that makes it a perfect choice for home portability. Precisely, this speaker measures 2 x 7.1 x 2.3 inches but it’s also notably heavy for its size at 1.5 pounds.
It’s still pretty much portable if you are looking for something that you can take along with you. But you might not be able to squeeze it into your pockets.
Charging and Battery Rating
Charging the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II is a breeze now. Unlike its forerunner that used a proprietary cylindrical charge plug, the new model now uses the standard micro-USB connector. This means that you can charge it via your Android phone’s charger. In addition, it can also charge from any USB source including laptops and car chargers and this, in our opinion, is very practical.
On the same note, this model now does come with a charging cradle that is ideal for home use. To juice up the speaker, you only need to connect the cradle to the USB charger and then dock the speaker on it.
FTrue to Bose’s word, the SoundLink Mini II has an improved battery rated at 10 hours from the quoted 8 hours that the original model offered and the control buttons up top have also been optimized for simple use. In place of the dedicated aux button of the previous speaker, the Mini II now has voice prompts that take you through Bluetooth pairing.
Connectivity and pairing
Speaking of pairing, this speaker can pair with 2 devices at a go and allows you to alternate audio streams between the 2 paired devices. On the same note, this radio can memorize the last 8 Bluetooth devices that it paired with last and this makes future pairings easy and fast. Of course, the 3.5mm jack input is there to cater for devices that don’t have Bluetooth.
We also like that this model now features a built-in microphone that makes it possible to use the Mini II as a loudspeaker when making or receiving phone calls.
How is its sound performance?
The Mini II sounds very similar to its predecessor. Actually, the manufacturer didn’t make any changes here and neither should they have. This remains to be one of the best Bluetooth speakers with an astonishing bass, especially for its size. But what’s more appealing is its ability to sound great at both high and low volume levels.
VERDICT: The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mini II is considerably pricier compared to what most of its competitors go for. In addition, with over a decade since it debuted, Bluetooth speaker technology has greatly changed and there are a lot of great features that the modern-day music lovers might appreciate on these gadgets, for instance, NFC pairing, multi-device pairing, multi-speaker pairing, a longer-lasting battery (20 hours at least), and waterproofing.
Make no mistake though: despite its shortcomings, the fact remains that the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mini II is still the best speaker for anyone who really wants great audio. This speaker triumphs over all its cheap competitors to give you richer and deeper bass with sparkling highs and an impressive midrange which is quite hard to find in most speakers of its class and size.
9. Amazon Echo Sub
Amazon Echo Sub
About: The Echo Sub is yet another smart device from Amazon to link up with the Alexa AI. This product is meant to go with either the Echo or the Echo plus product line from Amazon, connecting to them through the Alexa app and allows you to experience full stereo sound with satisfying lows in a connected system. The subwoofer comes with a £120 price tag, which is a titillating price for all the features included in it and is considerably lower than comparable products on the market. It doesn’t trail much behind the Sonos Sub, and that would put you back a whopping £600 The sub itself is a bit on the heavy side; however it is helpful when it comes to sound reproduction. The looks of the product match the set it was designed to go with - the Echo Plus and together create a sleek look for your home system.
Features at a glance
The installation and rollout of the woofer, as with the other Echo products, is alarmingly simple. All you have to do is log onto the app and add the Sub wirelessly to your Echo network. Controlling the device is simple as well, allowing for voice commands to be used throughout. With your voice, you can control the EQ, ordering Alexa to change the bass, mid or treble to anywhere between -6 to +6. The lows sound thick and satisfying on the system thanks to the 100W Echo Sub bass booming through the 6’’ subwoofer. With the Echo Sub, Amazon tried their best to make the appearance of the product pleasing to the eye. With it being a subwoofer and with the fact that you can place the subwoofer anywhere in the room and it will sound the same, they didn’t have to. Still, it’s a pleasant surprise that the Echo Sub does not annoy the eye. With its simplistic design and inoffensive colouring, it can become a part of your interior seamlessly.
VERDICT: The Echo Sub is an excellent value for its price, getting close to leading the game concerning quality to cost of the product. The woofer is capable of fresh, satisfying lows and when paired with the Echo or Echo Plus can create a mighty, easy-to-service setup. It’s clear that Amazon has listened to customer feedback and the Echo Sub is a welcome fix to the meek bass sounds of the previous sound systems. Together with the Echo Plus, they sound fantastically clear and stimulating. The Echo Sub is definitely an excellent subwoofer to consider if you’re looking to build a home sound system that is easy to use, modern, sleek and reasonably priced.
10. OontZ Angle 3 Plus
OontZ Angle 3 Plus
About: The OontZ Angle 3 Plus is a sibling to 2 other Bluetooth speakers designed and engineered by Cambridge SoundWorks; the OontZ Angle and the OontZ Angle 3XL. These speakers are currently very popular (judging from the reviews counts around the internet) and each has several varying features that make them somewhat unique from the others. But they are all compatible with any Bluetooth-enabled phone and also work flawlessly with Echo Dot and Kindle.
Other than its amazingly lower price tag, the other thing that continues to attract most buyers to the Angle 3 Plus speaker is its promise of a 30-hour playtime without compromising on the sound quality.
Features at a glance
Dimensions and portability
The OontZ Angle 3 Plus measures 6.5 x 2.75 x 2.75 inches and weighs around 0.81 pounds. These dimensions make it ultra-portable for music on the go especially considering that it is weatherproof; dustproof, rainproof, and splash-proof.
Boasting an IPX5 water resistance rating, this is a speaker that you can take to beach parties and even use by the pool without the risk of losing it to mere splashes. However, note that submerging it in water (whether partially or fully) may cause serious damages.
Connectivity and Compatibility
As we told you before, this speaker can be used with any Bluetooth-enabled Smartphone. On this note, the connectivity range is superb at an amazing 30 feet. Although the manufacturer says that this range was measured in an unobstructed environment, previous buyers affirm that the connectivity is still great in areas with thick walls and only tends to get weaker once you approach 40 feet.
Again, you don’t have to worry in case you are using a device with no Bluetooth connectivity thanks to the 3.5mm male-to-male cable included in the package.
Another feature that you’ll definitely appreciate is the built-in mic that allows you to receive phone calls from your Smartphone or iPhone hands-free. Even better, there is a dedicated phone calls/Bluetooth that is separate from the ON/OFF button.
Charging and Battery Rating
This speaker charges via a micro USB cable that can be connected to a USB wall charger (not included in the package) or any other USB power source including your laptop or PC. Charging the batteries from 0% to 100% will take at least 8 hours.
Well, most people may consider this as a deal-breaker considering that speakers such as the Beats Pill+ charge fully in utmost 3 hours. But then again, this speaker’s stellar battery life (30 hours) makes some sense. Worth mentioning, this manufacturer states that this playtime was measured with the speaker fully charged and set at 2/3 of the maximum volume. This means that you might get a few more hours of music if you don’t crank it up this high.
Although not so unique, the OontZ Angle 3 Plus also has a battery saver mode that switches the device off after 15 minutes of idleness.
VERDICT: The OontZ Angle 3 Plus is a must-have especially if you are looking for an affordable speaker that offers a good balance of quality construction, ease of use, and sound integrity.
Right off the bat, we can’t compare its bass to what other speakers that are several folds pricier offer, for instance, the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II. However, if you are not a real ‘bass head’, we are pretty sure that you’ll find its bass range and general sound quality fabulous.
We really like that this speaker has been crafted purposely for the road. Its all-weatherproof design and IPX5 water resistance rating are a guarantee that you can take it to the beach and swimming pool parties without fear.
11. Sonos Play 5: Ultimate Echo Dot Speaker
Sonos Play: 5
About: The Sonos Play:5 Ultimate Wireless Smart Speaker has fantastic sound, with six dedicated speakers drivers to make sure that you hear every found in whatever you’re playing. You can operate this through your phone, through any Alexa enabled device or on the speaker itself, making it easy to use. Unlike most other speakers of this size, it has three woofers to give you the good bass kick that you want.you can also connect this with any of the other Sonos devices to create your own custom home sound system.
Features at a glance
This speaker is wall mountable, and can connect to nearly any smart device to fill your home with sound. It’s almost 15 pounds, so it’s a little bit heavy, but it makes up for it with the depth of sound that it offers. The six different speaker drivers, three woofers and great technology make sure that you can hear all of the high notes, everything in the mid range, and feel the kick of the bass line when you’re listening to your Sonos Play:5. This speaker is really easy to set up, with a very simple guide on how to do it. If you’re looking for a simple, high quality sounding speaker, this won’t disappoint you.
Many customers have reported that the Wi-Fi cards inside their Sonos Play:5 go bad in 10 - 12 months, which requires them to deal with a return instead of using their speakers the way they wanted
The quality of sound from the auxiliary cords that come into the speaker is terrible.
Because this is connected to Alexa and offers voice control options, you have to set up your device to
VERDICT: Considering the price and the quality of the speakers that were put into this device, I would expect it to last longer for most of its customers. The Wi-Fi card issues are a serious problem for a speaker that advertises itself on its connectivity. If you don’t have Wi-Fi connected to your speaker, your app is not going to work, making this speaker a 15 pound brick. I think that Sonos needs to put the effort into making the rest of their parts as high-quality as their speakers are before I would recommend buying this for your home or office. The next generation might be significantly better.
How To Choose The Best Echo Dot Speaker For Your Needs
Before we get into Echo dot specifics, let’s first consider what makes up a good (or great) speaker.
Watts - Generally speaking, the more watts, the better. A 150-watt speaker like the Bowers Wilkins Zeppelin will sound FAR better than the 6 watts Anker Soundcore.
Really no contest.
In general terms, the watt of a speaker measures its loudness. However, a lower quality speaker may start to distort and crack above 80% volume, so it doesn’t matter how many watts it has. It’s still going to sound bad.
Some companies, like Bose, don't release the wattage output of their speakers.
I don’t really think they’re hiding anything. They probably believe that the total number of watts doesn’t tell the whole story. They don’t want to sway a buying decision on a great sounding, lower wattage speaker.
Tweeter/Woofer Size - It is a myth to believe that larger speakers will sound better than smaller ones.
In truth, they might actually give a better sound but what you really want to look for is the decibel measurement and cabinet design.
There is an excellent discussion on this forum on the topic if you want to go in depth but for our purposes...
Decibels (Db) is the measurement of human hearing. It goes from 0-140 where 0 is no sound and 140 will cause permanent hearing loss.
To give you an example, the Bang & Olifson S3 maxes out at 95 dB, and the UE Roll pushes 86 dB.
Just like the wattage of a speaker, don’t just rely on the dB rating to make your decision. Some speakers will start to distort at higher volumes.
360 Sound - 360-degree sound is a newer design that creates a rich, full sound no matter where you place the speaker in the room.
Also known as omnidirectional, 360 degree sound systems disperse sound evenly in every direction.
They work by installing several speaker drivers in a circle or pointing the speaker driver down.
In the past, for the best sound, you would have to find the “sweet spot” in the room where you would then place the speaker. If you physically moved to certain places in the room, it wouldn’t sound as good.
Many speakers like the MegaBoom and also the Amazon Echo are equipped with 360 degree sound.
Auto On-Off - Ok so let’s talk about the Echo Dot now.
When choosing a speaker for the Dot, there is one super important detail that we must address.
You need a speaker that DOES NOT go into auto-off mode. If it goes into auto-off mode then you will have to pair it every time you want to use your echo. This gets tiresome very quickly.
Another thing to keep in mind is that if you plug the Dot using the aux port, you will not be able to use the Bluetooth functionality.
How To Pair - Pairing your Echo Dot is REALLY simple.
All you have to do is say “Alexa (or whatever your wake word is) connect my speaker.” It takes a couple of seconds and then it magically connects.
If it doesn’t “magically” connect, or you want to use a different speaker, you will have to go into the app and set it up manually.
Still a pretty straightforward process. Just go into the settings and choose the speaker you want from the list.
Wifi vs. Bluetooth - WiFi speakers are becoming more popular because they offer great sound and can be run through your wireless network.
Unfortunately, at the moment, you can’t connect your Dot directly to a WiFi speaker. There is a workaround if you have a Sonos.
You can purchase a Sonos connect and plug it into the Dot. This will allow for wireless streaming through WiFi.
How To Connect To ANY Speaker - If you don’t have a Bluetooth speaker or you just want to use a home theater system or another random speaker there are a couple of ways.
First, the easiest way is to get a 3.5mm double ended jack and plug the Dot directly into the receiver or speaker if it has an aux-in port.
Second, you can purchase a Bluetooth transmitter like the one pictured below.
You just plug it into the aux port of your stereo system or speaker, and you’re good to go. I should note that you will need to pair it every time you want to use it by pressing the button on the receiver.
Not the cleanest solution but it will work.
Third, you can purchase a Sonos Connect. This will allow you to plug the Echo Dot into the back of the Sonos unit and connect not just to Sonos devices but also to any speakers that you plug into the back of the device.
I'll go into more detail about the Sonos Connect in a minute.
One Speaker or Two - Some Echo Dot compatible speakers like the UE Wonderboom allow you to pair an extra speaker.
This means that you can, for example, have one UE Wonderboom in the master bedroom and one in the master bathroom and they will both play at the same time.
It does this by pairing the first speaker to the Dot, and then you pair the second speaker to the first speaker creating a chain.
A Few Words About Sonos - Sonos is the darling of the home automation community and for a good reason.
The sound is fantastic, and the ability to control multiple speakers spread all throughout your house is pretty cool.
At the time of this writing, connecting an Echo Dot to a Sonos system is a bit wonky and really freakin' expensive.
That’s because unless you have a Sonos 5 which has an aux input if you want to connect the Dot to any of the other speakers in the Sonos line you have to purchase a Sonos Connect.
That will set you back around $300 bucks just for the ability to connect your Dot to a Sonos speaker.
In the near future, there will be better Echo integration which I believe will remove the need for the separate Connect unit.
If you can’t wait then go ahead and purchase the Connect and in the future, you can use it to hook in your old record turntable or some legacy speakers you have laying around the house.
Get The Sonos Connect on Amazon
A couple more options here. You can now purchase a Sonos One which has Alexa built right in, but it does not have all of the features or a Dot or Echo.
Also, after you purchase a single Sonos speaker like the One or The Play 5, you can use that speaker to connect to any other Sonos speaker for Alexa control in a multi-speaker group.
Optional Accessories - Here are a few accessories that you might want or need to go along with your external echo dot speaker.
3.5mm Jack - You can use a standard headphone jack to connect the dot to any speaker or sound system with an aux-in port.
Get It On Amazon
Bluetooth Receiver - You can turn any stereo system or speaker with an auxiliary port into an Echo Dot-enabled device. Just plug the Bluetooth Receiver into the aux port, pair it and you’re good to go.
Get It On Amazon
Echo Dot Battery - If you want to take your Dot on the go then you can purchase an optional battery that will connect to the bottom.
Get It On Amazon
Final Words - Wrapping It Up
All of the units on this list are a definite upgrade to the wimpy speaker that comes stock with the Echo Dot.
The UE Wonderboom gets our vote not because it has the best sound quality (the $700 B&W Zeppelin owns that title), it’s because… The price is right, and You can connect two speakers wirelessly to the Dot, it’s waterproof so you can use one in the shower and it’s also ultra-portable.
