How Do You Choose a Bluetooth Speaker?
If you are a music lover and prefer listening to digitized music away from your gadgets (such as a computer or a stereo system) or in the car, then you require a portable Bluetooth speaker linked wirelessly to your phone. Every year, hundreds of Bluetooth speakers are released onto the market. It is tough to find the one which will meet your requirements. To help you sort through the various products and find the best Bluetooth speaker, we have compiled a list of pointers.
What to consider when buying a Bluetooth speaker?
There are two types of Bluetooth speakers; the ultra-portable ones are easy to carry and can be easily called coat-friendly or pocket-friendly. The other type is the table-top semi-portable device and is more convenient if you want to set up a home theater system. Experts, however, will tell you to that it is not just the size which matters; we have scoured the internet and gone through several Bluetooth speaker reviews and consolidated some valuable points.
Think about technical specifications: While choosing the device, it is important to choose the size and arrangement of the speakers. A universal truth about Bluetooth speakers is that a bigger form factor ensures better sound. Higher wattage and larger speakers give more volume, so if you want your music to be loud and clear even in a pool of people, you need larger speakers with more power.
Check the IP ratings: It is the IP rating which ensures that your Bluetooth speaker is well-protected from liquid and solid items. It is always good to find a device which is not only waterproof and dust-proof but shock- and splash-proof as well.
Check the battery life: The battery life of a Bluetooth speaker largely depends on the model and the brand. Some may allow you to play 40 hours of music, while others may lose their battery at the end of 10 hours. Check the manufacturer’s estimated play time as the benchmark and not the battery capacity of the device. The battery sharing feature is also quite common in high-end speakers.
Go for online shopping: if you have already set your budget, it is good to check out the speakers online as it saves time, money and energy. You can also compare between different models before selection.
