How to Choose the Best Portable Mp3 Player and Speaker

Portable mp3 speakers are a flexible and highly functional accessory for listening to music on the go. While personal headphones are ideal for one person, what happens when you want to share your tunes to the world (or at the very least, everyone in the room)? One can use a portable mp3 speaker with a laptop, their iPhones and Androids, or even an iPad for the highest quality in excellent sounding music for all to enjoy.

As portable devices, these specialized mp3 speakers bring the best in convenience, mobility and reliability. They're an inexpensive and ideal way to listen to music in the car, or bringing it to a pool party or the beach to offer customized listening for everyone to groove to.

 Portable mp3 speakers are great for travel as well. Here's another idea - when you're taking a bath or even relaxing in your Jacuzzi, why not hook up your mp3 player to a portable mini speaker? Listen and sing along to relaxing melodies as you soak away your stress. 

Features to Consider When Buying a Portable Mp3 Player and Speaker

Just like any other electronic device, there are many different types of portable mp3 speakers for different situations. With a variety of features, benefits and costs, how do you determine which one is right for your specific needs?

Audio Playback Quality

How clear, crisp and accurate your music sounds via your portable mp3 speaker should be a top factor. A clean treble, turbo bass, even frequencies and reduction of static and distortion during high volumes should be investigated. The SimplyVibe SV-S350III Premium Rechargeable Mp3 Speaker use Turbo Bass technology & Digital Signal Processing for super low distortion. Blast your music at the highest volumes with zero worry!

Style and Design

Let's face it - style and looks are also important when deciding on an electronic purchase. A sleek look that matches the appearance of your current sound system of choice is a factor for everyone, regardless of age. The SimplyVibe SV-X7 (Black) Premium Rechargeable Portable Speaker is designed with a slick, sophisticated and modern shine that looks as high quality as the music it generates.

Energy Source

For the ultimate in reliability, a rechargeable portable mp3 player is a solid choice. These speakers use USB ports so you can charge them via your laptop or desktop computer. The SimplyVibe SV-X6 Portable Speaker use a single USB cable for both audio and power, supports USB 2.0, allows the use of an AUX cable for iPhone/iPad accessories, and plays MP3 songs from a USB Flash Drive or from a SD Card.

To ensure hours of continuous music, invest in a brand with a USB code and a removable battery for additional security. Most of these brands also include a 3.5 mm jack for extra compatibility with cell phones, almost all brands of mp3 players, and computers.


You may want a portable mp3 speaker that has rewind, fast forward, play, pause, mute, and volume controls right on the device as well. Newer models even include a screen with track information, clock, calendar, alarm, and a battery power display.

Size, weight

Look for a brand that offers ultra-lightweight, yet durable speakers. They should come in a size that's not too intrusive or cumbersome to carry in a backpack (or any travel bag you decide to use).

The average size for portable mp3 speakers are 6" x 2" x 3". An ideal weight would be about one pound or lighter. The SimplyVibe SV-S550S Premium Portable Speaker is an ultra-light brand that weighs in at an incredible 0.5 lbs.


This relies solely on the music source. If you plan to use Apple products, such as an iPhone, iPad or a Mac laptop, ensure your speakers are compatible with their software. Likewise, you'll want to keep an eye out for compatibility for Androids, laptops, or general mp3 players. 

Some brands allow you to use an SD card or USB Flash Drive for a music source. These brands are ideal for travelers, or for those who may not own an mp3 player.


Read plenty of portable mp3 speaker reviews and keep an open mind. If a brand has many five star reviews, it may be a worthy investment. Likewise, a brand with many three or less star reviews should be reconsidered, even if it's a good price. You'll want to weigh all the pros and possible cons, and then decide from previous feedback if the brand is worth the purchase.

What are some of the best portable mp3 speakers available?

SimplyVibe's brand of reliable, sleek and high quality portable mp3 speakers offer the best in sound quality, dependable features, cross platform compatibility, and a price that can't be beat.

When you're out shopping for portable audio speakers, it's hard to know which one has the best quality AND won't put a hole in your wallet. There are so many brands, models, and features that could easily overwhelm anyone shopping for new speakers. However, once you try out the SimplyVibe V5-BT1, you’ll never have trouble shopping for speakers again. 

The SimplyVibe V5-BT1 portable speakers are the newest model that have been introduced on SimplyGlobo's website. One of the best features of this product is that it is Bluetooth which means it can hook up to your laptops, smartphones or tablets without dealing with any cords or plugging anything in. It's very simple to pair your device with the speakers and the instructions are user friendly and straightforward. Once your device is paired up, all you have to do is choose a song and hit play! You can control the volume as well as switch songs from either your own device or the speakers which I find very convenient. These amazing speakers can play up to 18 hours on medium volume without needing a charge, so you don’t have to worry about charging it all of the time. The speakers aren’t the only thing that can be charged; in case your phone battery is about to die, you can use the included USB and charge your phone using the speakers. That’s a very special feature that you won’t find on a lot of portable speakers. Also, if you’re using your smartphone to listen to music and you get a call at the same time, you can answer the call using the product as a speakerphone! It takes one press of the button and you can talk to someone straight from the speaker and then go right back to listening to your music. After learning about all of the unique features of the SimplyVibe V5-BT1, I hope this helps make your shopping experience a lot less stressful! Happy shopping!
