Our take on the Klipsch Groove
The Klipsch Groove Bluetooth speaker is nothing short of a two pound audio monster. The Groove has a minimalist design that allows it to blend perfectly into any room and a legendary sound quality that blows its competition out of the water. Speaking of water, the Groove is splash proof, water resistant and hard as a rock. Take it pool side of on a hike through the woods and this speakers eight hour battery life will come in handy no matter what you’re doing.
A Speaker for Your Personal Soundtrack
Wish you could take your home stereo with you? Long to listen to music at your mountain cabin, down the shore, or at the pool, with the same kind of fidelity you can in your living room? Take a look at the Klipsch Groove Bluetooth Speaker; a wireless, handheld unit delivering Klipsch’s legendary sound quality in a tough, classy little package that you can take just about anywhere.
Bluetooth Ready, No Wires Needed
The Groove comes equipped with Bluetooth streaming capabilities – transform any room into a live concert! Connect the Groove to any Bluetooth device that stores or streams music -- MP3s and MP4s, your Spotify playlists or Pandora feeds -- and prepare to be wowed by Klipsch’s patented, acoustically perfect sound.
A Handful of Rock
Coming in below a featherweight two pounds, the Groove is the very definition of handheld. It’s easy to move around to wherever you need it -- on the kitchen counter or desk or bedside table. A truly “portable” speaker, this little music machine packs a far bigger punch than any speaker this size!
Iconic Klipsch Design
Designed like a classic guitar amp, the Groove riffs on Klipsch’s classic minimalist form-follows-function aesthetic. Solid black, accented only with a copper marque on the grille, it’s minimalist design allows the Groove to blend into any room (until you crank the sound).
The New Portable Performance Standard
Klipsch have styled themselves the “Keepers of the Sound” since 1946, and the Groove proves that reputation with audio specs that belie it’s small stature. Powered by a 3” full-range high-excursion driver, with surprising bass boosted by two side-firing oval passive radiators, the Groove delivers the clarity of sound that only Klipsch is known for - crisp, clean highs and deep-throated lows.
Road Trip Ready
This is a speaker built to be your favorite travel companion – anywhere, anytime. Its built-in rechargeable battery gives eight hours of battery life, matching your laptop or smartphone’s battery life precisely. Cruising across the Great Plains? Hiking the Appalachian Trail? Camping with friends? Catching some rays at the beach? No matter what you’re doing or where you’re going, the Groove is ready to party.
Durable and Water Resistant
A tough little speaker, the Groove was built to last. Take it tailgating, or even use it to kick your picnics and backyard barbeques up a notch. It’s also splash-proof and water-resistant, so it can handle getting caught out in a light summer shower -- or being placed next to your pool or hot tub. (We just don’t recommend taking it into the pool with you.)

Customer Reviews for Klipsch Groove Portable Bluetooth Speaker (Black)
"You guys mind if we Rock out today?" "Not at all man! That sounds pretty good!" "What are you playing that on?" "It's called the groove" "That's pretty impressive!" "Thanks, if you have any requests let me know."
And just like that we are having one of the best days of golf a guy can ask for. We decided to play a double round on that particular day and to my surprise the "Groove" easily lasted 8 hours at a decent volume level. I've owned multiple competing products and have never experienced this level of battery life and audio quality combined. I now own two grooves. One for the golf bag and one for the meeting room.
Adding video and audio to a presentation really grabs attention and makes for a memorable meeting. When I'm goofing around on the golf course I'm a road warrior for a living doing presentations all over the globe. Everything I need must fit into one easy carry on. The size of the groove is a perfect upgrade when considering the competing products that I've traveled with in the past.
I have been through more than a hand full of other portable speakers from "Beats" "JBL" "Bose" over the years and this has easily become my #1. Well done Klipsch!
I have tried few other portable speakers. They are good too but this impressed me with the sound quality. Well I can recommend this product but do some research before you buy a speaker.
I'd buy again and recommend it, but understand before you buy, this is not typical sound you'd expect from Klipsch. I have other reference speakers from them and they are GREAT. Given its size... It is still an impressive speaker.
Pros: Sound Quality, portable, splash proof, build quality
Cons: No cons
