DeWalt Jobsite Bluetooth Speaker Review Overview
There have been studies done on how music favorably affects productivity in office environments and learning in schools. There are even ways music can be used as therapy to treat some conditions. Now, for me, music helps me focus and keeps things a bit more interesting no matter what I am doing. So, while I can’t say definitively that a job site is more productive because of music, I can certainly say I think it's more fun!
DeWalt launches their Worksite Bluetooth Speaker with a host of features and durability we have come to expect from DeWalt. We have looked at so many Jobsite Speakers over the years and to be honest, a lot of them are good options. More than anything, it comes down to what is most important to you. With so many options out there, what makes the DeWalt stand out?

DeWalt Jobsite Bluetooth Speaker Review Performance
This speaker can jam. I have several portable speakers, from brands like Bose to no-named speakers so I feel that I am a fairly good judge of sound quality. Is this the absolute best? No, it isn’t but guys its dang good. The only knock I would give its sound quality is that the bass isn’t altogether that strong. The Bluetooth connection and controls are intuitive and easy to use. I have never had such a simple time pairing my phone to anything as I did with this speaker. With sound quality that exceeds most vehicle sound systems and easy to use features, what’s not to like?
What stands out about the DeWalt speaker is also the ruggedness that is inherent in the speaker. You can tell that this speaker wasn’t designed to look pretty set up in a garage but meant to hold up to real worksite conditions. I appreciate the dual power option as well, providing much-needed versatility where professionals need it most. Not every job site will be the same, as such planning for multiple power conditions gives the assurance this unit will function no matter what your power availability is. While this speaker is directed towards the professional user, homeowners will love the versatile features and quality as well. To me, this speaker really hits the nail on the head.
DeWalt Jobsite Bluetooth Speaker Review Value
What could be more impressive than this speaker? Well, it's price. Model # DCR010 comes in at $99.00 bare tool and can be found at The Home Depot. Like anything, value always comes down to perspective. Not everyone is willing to spend several hundred dollars to provide music to a job site. This speaker provides great sound and quality that isn’t a budget buster. If you’re on the DeWalt Battery platform, this job site speaker is a no-brainer.
