10 Best Bluetooth Speaker with AM/FM Radio

Radio remains a powerful force in the world of media. Though it lacks the star power of other mediums, like film and TV, AM-FM radio stands as one of the most accessible forms of audio consumption out there and retains untold millions of devoted listeners, even in the age of Apple Music and Spotify — provided you have a radio. While many are swayed by the glamor of feature-rich Bluetooth speakers, it’s certainly possible to have your cake and eat it too when it comes to finding a dedicated radio that is equally comfortable serving as an ordinary Bluetooth speaker.

Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio


Below is our handpicked list of the best Bluetooth speakers with radio. Some featured on our list are vintage replicas, while others are FM-only, and at least one is powerful enough to service a small concert, so there’s a good chance you’ll find what you’re looking for somewhere on this list. That said, if you still haven’t found the right radio for you, feel free to let us know in the comments the exact sort of specs and features you’re looking for and we’ll get back to you with a couple options. 


1. Xeneo X21 


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Xeneo



  • Brand: Xeneo

  • Price: $39.99

  • Radio Type: FM


For those looking for a mix of portability and durability, the Xeneo X21 is a sturdy yet powerful Bluetooth speaker with FM radio capabilities. At 15W, the Xeneo offers surprising power for its size and price point, with dual aluminum radiators on either end of the device, and impressive toughness — the Xeneo is IP6X splashproof, dustproof and shockproof and comes with a hard-shell travel case. This coupled with its microSD support, Bluetooth connectivity, and FM radio makes it an excellent all-in-one choice for travelers and adventurers who want to listen to their music on the go.

2. Antimi Wireless Speaker


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Antimi



  • Brand: Antimi

  • Price: $32.97

  • Radio Type: FM


The best thing about the Antimi Wireless Speaker is its overall usability — with a sleek, soft-edged all-metal body and a voice function that reads out feature-activation during use. The speaker isn’t as physically powerful as one of the others on this list with its dual 3W speakers but boasts a clear sound quality backed by authentic user reports. It also sports an extended, 12-hour battery life on a single charge for long-lasting sound on the go or at home. The primary reason you might pick the Antimi over other Bluetooth FM radio alternatives is more the design and usability than raw performance.

3. Prunus J-288


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Prunus J 288



  • Brand: Prunus

  • Price: $23.99 

  • Radio Type: AM/FM


The Prunus J-288 is arguably the speaker of choice for those looking for a straight-up AM/FM radio on the go more than they are a hardcore Bluetooth speaker. Created by self-identifying radio enthusiasts, the J-288 comes with an extra-long antenna for enhanced reception and a physical number pad to make keying in long frequencies even easier. Similar to the Antimi, it won’t knock your socks off, sound-wise, with its pair of 3W speakers but is more than loud enough to fill a room with your favorite radio stations. All in all, the J-288 is Bluetooth- connected radio designed for radio-lovers by radio-lovers.

4. Ion Audio Block Rocker Plus


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio ION Block Rocker



  • Brand: ION

  • Price: $169.99

  • Radio Type: AM/FM


By far the most expensive Bluetooth speaker with radio on this list, the ION Block Rocker Plus gives you a heck of a lot of power for your buck at 100W. The thing is a legitimately powerful amplifier with an 8-inch woofer and wide-dispersion tweeter, and the fact that it comes with AM-FM radio is really just the icing on a well-rounded audio-system-cake. With easy-pair Bluetooth, bass-boost, microphone, and a rugged exterior, the ION is perfect for pretty much any situation and location. Throw on top of that the fact that it comes with wheels and you’ve got a highly portable speaker (for its size/power) at a price that, relatively speaking, offers a lot of value for its features.

5. Prunus J-160


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Prunus J 160



  • Brand: Prunus

  • Price: $27.99

  • Radio Type: AM/FM/SW


The second Prunus speaker on this list, the J-160 is the radio for those looking to emulate vintage-era devices without sacrificing modern functionalities. Capable of tuning into shortwave radio on top of AM-FM, the coolest thing about the J-160 has to be the old-school tuning dial. Anybody looking to LARP as a 1940’s radio enthusiast will have a lot of fun with the speaker — while also able to connect to it via BlueTooth for when reality comes calling and they want a speaker for their other media needs.

6. Sony Portable Digital Turner


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Sony



  • Brand: Sony

  • Price: $85.99

  • Radio Type: AM/FM


Unlike the vintage radios on this list, the Sony Portable digital Turner Device transports users to the ’90s when CDs were still a thing. The best thing about the Sony Digital Turner is certainly the power it brings alongside old-school features. Great for hanging on the deck or enjoying an outdoor camping trip, not only does the Digital Turner help justify your CD collection to your significant other, it supports AM-FM radio with 30 preset buttons (20 FM, 10 AM) and even lets your burn CDs off of USBs and other media inputs — if that’s something you still want to do.  


7. Victrola Retro Bluetooth Radio


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio - Victrola



  • Brand: Victrola

  • Price: $39.99

  • Radio Type: AM/FM


As old-timey as it gets, the Victrola Retro Bluetooth Radio offers just the kind of dead simplicity some will gravitate towards. With nothing more than a dial tuner, AM/FM/BlueTooth switch, volume and bass/treble dials, the Victrola is a perfect unity for those who just want a radio that can, if needed, operate as a Bluetooth speaker. The warm design and walnut construction add authenticity to the retro-immersion and won’t disappoint anybody looking for a solid radio that feels like it popped out of a wormhole into the golden days of radio broadcasting.


8. Sbode Portable Bluetooth Speaker 


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Sbode



  • Brand: Sbode

  • Price: $39.99

  • Radio Type: AM/FM


Essentially an alternative to the Xeneo, the Sbode offers similar features, with its main selling point being the incredible durability and portability the speaker offers. The most notable difference for radio enthusiasts, however, will be the inclusion of AM radio. Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and fall resistant, the Sbode is ridiculously portable, even if the sound is nothing to write home about. If you enjoy the cylindrical design and portability of the Xeneo but are a fan of AM stations, the SBode is pretty much your best option among Bluetooth speakers in the sub-50 dollar range.


9. Fuse Vintage Retro


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Fuse Vintage



  • Brand: Master Tailgaters

  • Price: $79.99

  • Radio Type: AM/FM


A little pricier than some other radios with the same retro style, what makes the Fuse special is its design and capabilities. It really does fit the bill as a vintage speaker but offers much better power and clarity than similar radios with a 5W speaker. The ash tree wood veneer adds to the tactile appeal of the tastefully designed, artfully bare-bones radio alongside the ultra old-school sliding tuner. On top of the unique look, the Fuse maintains Bluetooth connection and aux connectivity for when the convenience of modern features comes calling. 


10. Tenmiya A200


Best Bluetooth Speaker with Radio Tenmiya



  • Brand: Tenmiya 

  • Price: $36.49

  • Radio Type: FM Radio


The Tenmiya offers some pretty ridiculous power for the price tag. With a 10W subwoofer packed inside of a (relatively) small speaker, the tenure Rests attractively at the intersection between affordability and performance. Packed inside of the wooden casing is the aforementioned subwoofer alongside two tweeters and even a bass tube to provide an expansive, richer sound than most other speakers at this price point.
