Around the neck Bluetooth speakers are the new wearable speakers that provide a whole new way to listen and enjoy music, movies, and games. Wearing these speakers around your neck allows the drivers to blast audio from the neck up to your ears providing a more personal but open listening experience that’s not as isolating as headphones or earbuds while allowing you to remain fully aware of your surroundings. Neck Bluetooth speakers are very new to the market but they deliver a different kind of audio experience when compared to regular Bluetooth speakers and headphones. I’ve rounded up the best wearable neck Bluetooth speakers available on the market today. Read Next: Best Wearable Bluetooth Speakers

The NAXA Electronics NAS-3100 Wearable Bluetooth Speaker is the cheapest neckband speaker on our list. This very cheap device doesn’t deliver the best audio quality but it does provide a comfortable fit around the neck while offering an enjoyable and immersive sound experience.
What we love the most about the affordable NAS-3100 is that you’re able to use it in multiple ways. You can stream music wirelessly from your smartphone or smart device, you can also play music from external storage devices via the included USB and memory card ports located on the side of the speaker. Plus, you can also manually connect to devices that do not support Bluetooth and just plug and play via the 3. 5mm auxiliary jack.

Battery life is far from impressive, you will be able to get 5 hours of music playtime and a wireless range of up to 10m. The sound quality is great, you get crisp, clean audio with ample bass to enjoying your favorite music, podcast, TV show or movie whether your home, exercising or traveling.
Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers
Priced From $39USD
The Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers have a different design and form factor when compared to the other neck speakers on the market. It has two small Bluetooth speakers that are connected to very flexible rubber cables that can adjust for maximum comfort. But what makes these neck speakers so unique is that these are magnetic speakers that attach to your clothing. There are two small magnets that you clip on to your shirt or whatever piece clothing your wearing, to hold each speaker firmly in place. Once the magnets are connected to the speakers, the speakers will stick to your garment and will stay secure no matter what physical sporting activity you take part in.
You only get 4 hours of playtime which isn’t as impressive as some of the other speakers on this list but it will still be enough to get you through your workout. The Zulu Audio has Bluetooth 4.1 technology and with a wireless range of up to 15 feet. Audio is very loud, with clean and clear mids and highs but the bass is lacking so if your the kinda person that likes some bass in your audio these speakers aren’t for you. The speakers have an IPX4 rating so they can handle sweat, rain, and small splashes with no problem. Read Next: Best Wearable Bluetooth Speakers
