Prime Day 2023 Bluetooth speaker deals: recap
The second iteration of the Amazon Prime Day savings event for 2023 is already behind us. It was a truly epic 48-hour shopping spree that brought some exciting markdowns on the coolest items out there, including Bluetooth speakers

Many of the most sought-after products in this department made an appearance on Amazon's deal section.

How much can I expect to save on Bluetooth speakers on Prime Day?

Discounts are typically hovering around the 30% mark. Naturally, some products get even more substantial price cuts. Depending on the price category of the actual Bluetooth speaker, you could save $20-$250 on a new Bluetooth speaker, depending on its starting tag. Right now on Prime Day in October, deals are clustered in the 20%-30% discount range.

We might still see epic markdowns like the JBL Boombox 2, which was reduced by 44% last Prime Day in July, or Sony's SRS-XB13, which is a very small and budget-friendly speaker, that also got a massive 42% discount. Both of these and many other top-class speakers by JBL, Sony, and Soundcore by Anker are on sale during the Amazon Prime Day in October event.

Prime Day JBL Bluetooth speaker deals that are live this October

During the second iteration of this year's Prime Day event, discounts for smaller and cheaper JBL speakers hovered around the $10-$15 mark. However, bigger and more powerful speakers got substantial markdowns at Amazon and other online merchants. 

For instance, the all-powerful JBL Xtreme 3 got adorned with a sweet $83 price cut. The Xtreme 2 was way more affordable, as might be expected. The older speaker was a whopping 58% off at the shopping spree.

There was no shortage of deals on JBL's Flip series. Both the JBL Flip 5 and the more contemporary model went on sale at Amazon, with discounts ranging around the 35% mark. The JBL Pulse 4 and Pulse 5 also appeared at discounted prices. Indeed, deals on JBL's speakers were out and about this October! 

Prime Day deals on Sony Bluetooth speakers to take advantage of now

Sony's products are a masterclass in both design and soundscape. However, as might be expected, high quality usually entails a hefty price tag. Fortunately, just like with everything else, prices for Sony's speakers tend to go down during Prime Day. So they did at this year's October event, too. 

A wide range of Sony's speakers went on sale online during the 48-hour shopping spree, including the SRS-XG300. Over at Amazon, you could get this fantastic speaker at a 43% cheaper price. The compact SRS-XB100H could be yours at a $10 cheaper price, which was more than reasonable, given that this speaker is quite affordable to begin with. 

The innovative SRS-NB10, which typically gets discounted at major savings events, didn't fall behind this October. Amazon allowed you to get it at a $50 cheaper price, making it a no-miss for some. 

Best Prime Day Soundcore Anker Bluetooth speaker deals on the

Soundcore's products may be cheaper than Sony and JBL speakers, but they still offer good value for money, especially when they're discounted by $30 and more. That's the average price cut we saw on Soundcore's products during the shopping spree. 

For more context, we saw the Select Pro sporting a $30 lighter price tag, while the larger and more powerful Rave Party 2 was retailing at Walmart at a $70 cheaper price. Shoppers seeking a work-related speakers like the PowerConf 3 S3 were in luck as well. This speakerphone got its price tag reduced by 23% during the event.

Second Prime Day Bluetooth speaker deals on Bang & Olufsen and Marshall

Many brands other than JBL, Sony, and Anker make exciting Bluetooth speakers, including popular names like Bang & Olufsen, Marshall, Bose, and Edifier. So, if you were looking for a product by some of these names, you were in luck! 

This October, you could claim over $100 in savings on a new Edifier system or take advantage of Amazon's 20% discount on the Marshall Stanmore II. Bang & Olufsen's Beosound A1 (2nd Gen) was retailing at $80 off. 

What does it mean when a Bluetooth speaker is waterproof? 

It means that you can take your speaker to the pool party without any fear of accidental splashes! But not only that. Nowadays, people carry their Bluetooth speakers with them, and it only takes a second of being distracted for a random drink to spill over your precious (and expensive) speaker.

In all actuality, Bluetooth speakers aren't waterproof. The right term is water-resistant, and there are a few ratings that are prominent among Bluetooth speakers

Depending on its rating, your speaker is capable of surviving:

  • IPX7 — Up to 30 minutes after being completely submerged in clean water
  • IPX5 — Splashes, spills and even sprays from water-guns
  • IP67 — A 30-minute dip in clean water and is also completely dustproof

Just to make things clear, we're talking about clean, room-temperature water here. Remember that pool water and seawater are deadly to electronics, due to their extra spices.

Which Bluetooth speaker should I choose on Amazon Prime Day 2023?

When talking about choosing a Bluetooth speaker, it all boils down to what you want to use it for. If you want it to be capable of filling up an entire room with sound, then a bigger model is a better fit. But if you plan to travel around with it just to enjoy some tunes in the background, then a smaller one will be the better choice.
