Factors to consider about Bluetooth speakers
Before you go on your hunt for a decent Bluetooth speaker, it is extremely important for you to understand what exactly you need to look for in it. To ease the whole selection process up for you, we have managed to jot down a list of the most important factors, which you must check for.
Frequency levels, or in other words “range,” tells you how wide an area can your speaker cover. The greater the range, the better the speaker tends to be. The range can vary from 30 feet to as high as 100 feet.
If you are looking for a speaker for your personal use, for like simply listening to music via your smartphone, then you do need a speaker with a high range. However, if you intend to place it at some place slightly crowded, then you would need a higher range.
Every time we listen to the term Bluetooth speaker, our mind automatically clicks “portable” to us. And there is nothing wrong with that! Because yes, Bluetooth speakers are meant to be portable one way or another.
However, how portable they are, varies from one speaker to another. If you’re looking to carry it around in your bag pack or in your hand, then a small sized one would be perfect for you.
3) Sound Quality:
It is a must to check for sound quality, or there sure will be no point in buying a Bluetooth speaker. You can test the sound quality either empirically or just look for watts and decibels of the speaker. The higher they are, the better the speaker is likely to be.
Also, with technological progress, Bluetooth speakers these days come with on-board sound and bass controls. So, if you can get one with this feature, it will make your life much simpler!
4) Compatibility and other Connectivity options:
There are a number of Bluetooth speakers that alongside Bluetooth connectivity, allows for connectivity via AUX, too. This shall open up an array of devices to connect your speaker with. But again, it totally depends on whether you want one with aux port or not! Because both shall work equally fine for you.
Some speakers have in-built rechargeable batteries fixed in them, while some operate on separate batteries in the form of cells. It is your personal choice to get whichever speaker you think will suit you. But in our honest opinion, it is somewhat better to get one with a rechargeable battery. This is because, it will save you from replacing batteries every week, and hence save up a good cost for you.
6) Battery life:
It is almost inevitable to not check for the battery life of a specific Bluetooth speaker. This is so because you would not want to charge your speaker every other hour. To steer clear of this problem, it is always best to get a Bluetooth speaker that gives at least 7-8 hours of playtime.
7) Color and Design:
This, undoubtedly, depends on you. Bluetooth speakers come in various designs and colors. So it would not be a problem for you at all to get one that suits your personality.
Bluetooth speakers have become very popular in the last few years, due to the ease they bring to their consumers. And with rapid technological progress, newer versions of these speakers keep coming up in the market with upgraded features. This allows the speaker to easily blend in with the latest gadgets and allows the user to enjoy it to its fullest. And it is simply amazing that you can easily find one of the best Bluetooth speakers just under $100 these days, unlike the time when they were first launched in the market.
