7 best linkable Bluetooth speakers that pair together
#1: JBL speakers of the same model
Of course, I’d put this first on this list…
JBL has that signature quality when it comes to Bluetooth speakers. And let me round up why JBL offers the best speakers:
- Sound quality is top-notch.
- Waterproof (up to 3 feet deep).
- Long battery life (up to 12 hours of listening).
That’s why it’s guaranteed that JBL delivers the standard.
But how ‘bout linking 2 speakers together via Bluetooth?
Well, JBL users aren’t missing out on that feature.
You can definitely link 2 JBL speakers together using Bluetooth.
However, there are some limitations to it.
For one, this type of Bluetooth connection is only possible for speakers of a similar model.
So if you’re thinking of buying a JBL Bluetooth speaker…
Don’t buy just one.
Here’s JBL Flip 5 in a pack of 2 for an amazing listening experience.
And once you got that on your hands, how would you connect the two?
I got you. Here’s…
How to connect 2 JBL Bluetooth speakers together
Step 1: Ensure that all speakers are ON.
If not, just press and hold the power button of each speaker.
Once that’s done, your speakers’ LED backlights should turn blue. As for some models, the lights are white.
You’ll also hear a short sound indicating that the speaker is on.
Step 2: Enable Bluetooth on your device from which the speakers will connect to.
It can be on your smartphone, whether iPhone (iOs) or Android phone. It also works for a tablet, laptop/computer, or TV.
Now, for those who have connected their speakers before:
- Go to your device’s ‘Settings.’
- Click ‘Bluetooth.’
- Toggle the Bluetooth switch ON.
When it’s the first time you’re gonna pair the speakers to your device:
- Go to your device’s ‘Settings.’
- Click ‘Bluetooth.’
- Toggle the Bluetooth switch ON.
- Find and check the box that says ‘Make my device discoverable.’
Once you do that, something should say your device is discoverable.
- Wait for your JBL speakers to detect and connect to your device.
Now, it’s time to connect all the speakers together.
Step 3: Use your device to pair to one JBL speaker first.
- Press and hold the Bluetooth button on your speaker. Do so until you hear a tune, which is usually after 3 seconds.
- Go to your device’s Bluetooth settings. There, look for your speaker’s name under ‘Available Devices.’
- Then, tap its name to pair.
- Repeat #2 and #3 to all the other JBL speakers.
Step 4: Play your music and enjoy.

#2: JBL speakers with the same function
Here, we’re still gonna talk about JBL speakers…
Because what if you have different models of JBL?
Can you still connect the speakers together?
Yes, you still have a chance of listening to 2 Bluetooth JBL speakers at once.
That’s if they have the same function.
As of now, there are 3 kinds of functions that JBL speakers share.
And not only will I be giving those functions, alright. I’ll also list down the JBL speakers that share them.
With that, it’ll be easier for you to assess which models you can connect to each other.
So, here they are:
Speakers under JBL PartyBoost function:
Speakers under JBL Connect+ function:
Speakers under the regular JBL Connect function:
#3: Harman Kardon speakers
How could I forget to recommend the high-quality speakers of Harman Kardon.
As of writing, their Onyx Studio series are the only ones linkable to each other.
And your Harmond Kardon Onyx Studio speakers could be from any generation…
But it’s still a guarantee that you can connect them via Bluetooth.
So far, there are 7 generations of this Harman Kardon Bluetooth speaker.
And you have to know…
Their specs are very impressive. I’m talking about:
- The elegant design.
- Superior stereo performance.
- The speakers are waterproof.
- A rechargeable battery that can last up to 8 hours.
- Its ability to connect to up to 2 devices (take turns playing music on one speaker).
All of those are everything that you need and more on a Bluetooth speaker.
The only downside is that Harman Kardon speakers can be pricey. Newer models are twice as expensive as a JBL speaker.
Regardless, you’re gonna enjoy the overall quality and performance of their speakers.
And most of all, you can link them together. As I said, every generation of Onyx Studio is linkable to each other.
Wanna check ‘em out? Let me save you some time and link each one of the latest speakers:

#4: Bose speakers
Another maker of quality speakers that’s worth mentioning…
It’s none other than Bose.
And with all that Bose has to offer when it comes to their Bluetooth speakers…
They’re going all out by giving their speakers the ability to connect to each other.
With that, you can enjoy blasting your favorite songs using your Bose speakers. And not just one, but how many more that you have.
Now, I understand that you got more questions about this…
What Bose speakers are compatible with Bluetooth linking?
Disclaimer: I know we’re talking about Bluetooth speakers that can pair with each other. But, Bose speakers (who also have Bluetooth capabilities) don’t use it to do so.
Instead, Bose speakers have this feature called the SimpleSync.
Moreover, this feature is limited to Bose devices only. And it lets these smart speakers and headphones pair with each other.
As of writing, SimpleSync is limited to 2 devices at once.
For example, you can pair your Bose soundbar with your Bose noise-canceling headphones.
This lets you stream your favorite shows on a big TV screen. All while being the only person that hears it.
Or, say you got a house party going on…
Gather up all your Bose speakers. Then, pair them together to blast on your tunes around your house.
Now, for the main question…
According to Bose, some products initially feature SimpleSync. Those are:
- Bose Soundbar 500.
- Bose Soundbar 700.
- Bose Home Speaker 300.
- Bose Home Speaker 450.
- Bose Home Speaker 500.
- Bose Smart Soundbar 300.
- Bose Smart Soundbar 700.
- Bose Smart Soundbar 900.
- Bose Portable Home Speaker.
- Bose Portable Smart Speaker.
Now, you can pair only select speakers and headphones with the devices above. Here’s the list of compatible products that support SimpleSync.
Note: It’s a long list that includes more smart speakers and headphones.
How to link multiple Bose speakers via Bluetooth
Step 1: Turn on the Bose devices that you plan to pair together.
Make sure that no other device is connected to your speakers. So that both devices are available for pairing.
Step 2: Open the free Bose Music App (available on iOs and Android).
Step 3: Click the speaker and headphones logo at the top left corner.
Step 4: Select the first speaker you plan to use.
Note: This is the device that initially features SimpleSync.
Then, you’ll be redirected to the home page of the app.
Step 5: Select the speaker’s image in the lower right corner.
Doing so will make more options appear.
Step 6: Tap ‘Group Speakers.’
It’ll lead you to the ‘Group’ menu.
Step 7: Select your next speaker that appears under the ‘SIMPLESYNC’ option.
With that, wait for it to connect. And, all done…
#5: BassPal Portable Bluetooth Speakers
Talk about a budget-friendly option right here…
The BassPal Portable Bluetooth Speakers come in pairs.
So, you’d be getting 2 portable Bluetooth speakers for $29.99.
And I won’t forget to mention a feature that brought you here…
Those 2 speakers can pair together. Therefore maximizing your listening experience.
And when you’re not set to play some tunes on both, you can always use just one.
So, it’s up to you whether to listen simultaneously…
Or even separately. How cool is that?
Now, let’s dive further into the speaker’s features…
First is its size and appearance…
It’s incredibly portable. Weighing only 7.76 oz (220 g). And its dimensions are 2 x 2 x 3 in (5 x 5 x 7.6 cm).
Now, how about its battery life?
They’re a bit lacking on this one. But for a small speaker, 2 hours of non-stop listening isn’t bad.
Other important features and qualities include:
- Built-in microphone.
- Accessible FM radio.
Lastly, on to the most important quality of the speaker…
Which, for me, is none other than the sound it gives off.
So, what does this product has to say when it comes to that?
Well, they boast the so-called TWS Technology.
It stands for True Wireless Stereo Technology.
And what does that do?
To answer, let’s learn the…
Difference between stereo vs. mono
Have you listened to Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ using headphones?
If you haven’t, one of these days, you should try it…
And you don’t have to listen to the whole song to get what I’m about to say.
Now, notice something when they sing this part during the first few seconds:
‘Little high, little low.’
Those two will alternate between your ears (when you’re using headphones).
You’ll hear ‘little high’ on your right ear. While you’ll hear ‘little low’ on your left.
That’s the work of a stereophonic (stereo) sound.
It uses a number of channels to play the audio.
As for monophonic (mono) sound, its name already gives it away. Mono means one. And so, it’ll only play on a single audio channel.
You won’t hear a variation of left and right. That’s because a speaker with a mono sound would only sound like one.
Now, back to the product…
The seller gave an example of its TWS Technology.
If you’re gonna buy this, try playing Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller.’
They said you should be able to hear the footsteps moving from one side to the other.

#6: Xeneo X21 Dual Portable Bluethooth Speakers
This one’s double the price of the previous suggestion. But still, compared to other speakers, this is still budget-friendly.
Moreover, it’s another package of 2 pairable Bluetooth speakers.
That’s why it also boasts a superior stereo sound. When both speakers are on, one works as the right channel, and the other, as the left.
So, not bad for its price range of $40.99 to $76.99. Considering it also has these wonderful features:
- AUX jack.
- Compact design.
- Has access to FM radio.
- With built-in SD card slot.
- Rechargeable battery that lasts up to 10 hours.
#7: OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth Portable Speaker
This product boasts its sound quality. Which the manufacturers put labels as nothing but crystal clear.
It’s compact and portable. Yet, its volume is loud. And its bass is top-notch.
Thus, making this speaker ideal even in an outdoor setting.
But how about making the experience better?
Then, get another one and pair them together. Doing so also enables stereo mode.
OontZ Angle 3 must be of the same generation first. And when that’s the case, you can pair those speakers together via Bluetooth.
How about other factors that can add up to your listening experience?
For that, you can expect the following:
- AUX-IN jack.
- Rechargeable battery with a long life (about 14 hours).
How to pair 2 OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth speaker
Step 1: Individually pair your Bluetooth speakers to your device first.
Here’s how to do it:
- Go to your device’s ‘Bluetooth’ settings.
- Find the speakers’ name under discoverable devices.
- Then, select each speaker to pair.
Step 2: Disconnect each speaker to your device.
Step 3: Disable your device’s Bluetooth mode. To do so, just toggle the Bluetooth switch off in your settings.
Step 4: Simultaneously hold the ‘Play’ button on both the speakers. Hold them until the light indicator of the two speakers turns white.
Then, they should also announce that they’ve entered ‘Dual mode.’
Step 5: Next, hold the ‘Bluetooth’ speaker on one of the speakers.
Note: Whichever you choose will be the ‘controlling speaker.’
And that speaker’s indicator should start blinking blue light. That’s a signal that it’s ready for pairing.
Step 6: Use your device to connect to the controlling speaker. (Follow the 3 ways under step #1)
And, that’s everything.
How do I connect Bluetooth speakers with each other?
Connecting Bluetooth speakers with each other depends on the brand and model. Plus, the technical ways to connect Bluetooth speakers together will vary. Again, that’s based on their model and brand.
For example, you can connect 2 JBL speakers together. (To find out how, scroll up a little to #1)
However, not every JBL Bluetooth speaker has that ability. I’m talking about how only similar models have this feature.
Moreover, JBL speakers with the same function can also pair with each other.
Another example is BOSE. But, this feature isn’t limited to their Bluetooth speakers. You can connect their soundbars, smart speakers, and headphones to each other.
And that’s possible by what they call the SimpleSync. But like the first example, compatible products are limited.
People also ask:
What are the best portable Bluetooth speakers that pair together?
The best portable Bluetooth speakers are from the leading brands JBL and Bose.
JBL Bluetooth speakers
This brand has many portable Bluetooth speakers to choose from.
But most importantly, you can connect one JBL speaker to another.
But that’s only if they’re the same model.
You can also pair 2 JBL speakers together if they have similar functions. Those are Connect, Connect+, and PartyBoost functions.
Bose Portable Smart Speaker
As I’ve mentioned, Bose has the SimpleSync feature. It lets select Bose speakers and devices connect to each other at once.
Now, the product above is an initial device to access SimpleSync. It means that it’s the main speaker when you pair it with another Bose device.
Here’s a list of Bose products that has a SimpleSync function.
