When it comes to buying Bluetooth speakers, there’s a seemingly endless supply of options. And while we typically focus on indoor and “go anywhere” speakers, today sees us looking at something a little different.
On a recent episode of the AndroidGuys podcast Scott and Luke discussed the iLive Outdoor Dual Bluetooth Speakers. What makes them different from other speakers? Are they any good? How do they sound?
All of these questions, and others, are answered in this review.

Parting Thoughts and Conclusion
The iLive Dual Wireless Speakers give you the feel of a whole room sound system at a fraction of the cost. The speakers can be easily paired with your device thanks to Bluetooth 5.0. They also can be connected together to give you a stereo experience or better yet give you and another person shared listening without having to be in the same room. The added ability for solar charging and removable stakes make these a perfect option to level up your patio game.
We’ve been very impressed with these speakers. They stay connected well and sound great, especially for the price. Solar charging and water resistance also makes it so you’re ready for tunes anytime you step outside.
