With over 3,000 reviews and a 4.3-star average, the Amazon OontZ Angle 3 ULTRA Portable Bluetooth Speaker is a must-have for anyone in the market for great sound at an affordable price point.

Right now, the best-selling speaker is $30 (was $50) and we have a feeling it won’t last.

So, what makes this portable speaker one of Amazon’s top-sellers?

The design

For starters, the main design feature of this speaker is that it’s portable and has Bluetooth capabilities. At just 15 ounces and 6.5-inches long (2.75 high and wide, respectively), it makes for the perfect travel speaker that can easily fit in your hand or a bag.

“It is a great size to pack around or place on a table. I like the triangular design which enhances the sound from the dual speakers. Bluetooth connects quickly and effortlessly. It’s water resistant which is nice but I bought it to place on my workbench and use when running on my treadmill in the garage,” notes a reviewer.

“It’s hard to believe that such a large and clear sound can come from something so small,” writes another.

The durability factor

The triangular shape isn’t just unique-looking, it’s also splash and rain-proof thanks to IPX6 technology, which means it can easily be used as a shower speaker.

“It gets plenty loud for a shower (and then some) and has held up to occasional splashing perfectly thus far,” explains one happy customer.

“Big improvement over the previous model. Having the change track buttons makes this version significantly more useful to me in the shower,” says another.

The sturdy design can withstand more than just some water, too. One reviewer calls it “absolutely excellent” and adds, “I’ve had this for at least 6 months. I use it daily at work remodeling homes. It’s exposed to dust and dirt, gets dropped and thrown around. I carry it in my tool bag with all sorts of tools beating against it. It has handled all of it. Not only has it been tough, it sounds awesome. I have a mini jambox at home that I’ve had for over 4 years and the Oontz is easily 5 times louder with more clarity and far more bass/rich sound. It packs a punch for its size and price and lasts the work day and then some. Honestly, at half volume, I get multiple work days out of it and usually just charge it overnight every couple of days. Definitely one of the best Bluetooth speakers I’ve ever owned. I’ll buy another for sure.”

The sound

Despite its small size, theOontZ Angle 3 ULTRA gets a thumbs up from reviewers when it comes to the most important part, the sound.

“It is by far the best Bluetooth speaker I have ever owned and I have spent big money before this one and this thing is amazing. The depth of sound is simply pitch perfect,” sums up one customer.

One observer adds, “Best sounding portable speaker I have ever heard. Full range of sound with great bass for such a small package.” Another bass lover writes, “This is by far the best wireless Bluetooth speaker I have ever purchased. Its sound quality is amazing, crystal clear and just enough bass. If your looking for a speaker buy this one!”

Another fan is getting a second in order to use its dual stereo feature. “We use this Bluetooth speaker to watch movies on movie night on our phone projector. Best sound ever. We will be buying a second speaker for surrounded sound.”

Compared to the last model

While they both share the same 100-foot Bluetooth range, the Ultra model boasts 20 hours of battery playtime than the original’s 14. In addition, the newer model has 14 watts of power versus 10 for a more intense and powerful sound experience. However, if you’re looking for a more affordable option, the 3rd generation model is priced at a cool $25 and has over 32,000 reviews to vouch for it.

Bottom line

Other specs include an impressive 100-foot Bluetooth range, easy set-up and an AUX-IN jack for non-Bluetooth device hookup. There’s also a built-in mic so it can be used as a speakerphone and the unit has a phone button to pick up calls (the music pauses automatically when calls come in). The unit comes with an extra-long 6-foot micro-USB charging cable and a 3.5 mm audio cable.

“I will buy these over ANY other portable Bluetooth speaker! I already bought 7 or more of them, between these and the non-ultra Angle 3. Yes, 7! I own 2 and gifted all others. Everybody loves them!” writes a super-fan.

Another maintains, “Save your money and invest in the Oontz Angle 3 Ultra instead of one of the “higher end” more pricey portable audio towers: it’s properly proportioned in size, it’s super lightweight and the sound quality is outstanding for such an unassuming little unit.”
