Buyer’s Guide for Bluetooth Speakers

The idea of buying a new portable blue-tooth speaker may excite you, but there are few parameters that you must keep in mind while buying blue-tooth speakers so you get what you pay for.

  1. Battery Life: First and foremost is the battery capacity of your speaker which determines how long your speaker can last without a charge. The universal rule for the battery is "the bigger the better", A large battery will save you from getting those mood-shattering breaks during your favorite music.

  1. Audio Quality: What do you expect from a good speaker? Good sound quality right? Well, that's what separates the good ones from the bad ones. Good quality depends upon the driver the speaker is using. If the drivers on your speaker are good, then the sound quality on lower as well as higher frequencies will be the same. If the driver is of high wattage, it simply means that the speaker is loud and punchy.

  1. Style: The style of the speaker comes down to personal preference. Especially nowadays speakers are available in designs one can’t even think of. There are big and small ones. The big ones are harder to carry but do not compromise on the sound quality. Decide on what type of style you prefer or want to see on your next blue-tooth speaker.

  1. Waterproof: After everything you do to protect your devices, they are bound to get damaged due to human error sometimes or other. Therefore you need to make sure that the blue-tooth speaker you are planning to buy has some sort of IP level water and dust protection so that a tiny splash of water doesn’t make you worried about it.

  1. Connecting Multiple Speakers: Some speakers come with an added feature that allows them to be paired with another speaker of the same brand and type which can create a stereo sound experience. If you’re looking for such speakers then it is definitely worth investigating

  1. Speakerphone capability: It may often occur to you that you may receive calls while listening to your favorite track on your blue-tooth speaker, in such a scenario the speaker must have a good microphone so the person on the other end hears your voice clearly. Most of the in-built speakers coming nowadays with blue tooth speakers have microphone quality that just gets the job done. You may stumble upon a good microphone mostly put on expensive blue-tooth speakers.
