What To Keep in Mind Before Buying a Bluetooth Speaker

Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” - Sarah Dessen

Music is the binding force of the world. As many as there are people, so are the varied ways in which they like to listen to their music and get lost in their own world. Out of the many ways, one major way is a Bluetooth speaker. A Bluetooth speaker is a combination of an amplifier and a loudspeaker that has Bluetooth wireless connectivity and which can be easily paired with your smart devices.

A Bluetooth speaker is available in all sizes and has different kinds of battery backups available, from replaceable batteries to rechargeable ones and even with a plug charging option available. A typical Bluetooth speaker receives audio wirelessly via the Bluetooth protocol when paired with Bluetooth-enabled digital audio devices. So, what a BT speaker generally does is that it gets digital audio through wireless transmissions, transforms it to analog signals, amplifies it, and then the output is that of a regular speaker.

To make sure it functions fine, make sure that the BT speaker is paired with the smart audio device. When these are paired, the speakers and the digital audio device form a piconet, which refers to an ad-hoc network that links wireless devices using Bluetooth technology. The audio device effectively then sends its audio signals to the BT speaker via Bluetooth. Any BT speaker that has voice assistance and music control functions, also uses piconet to send the required signals back to the audio device.

Features to Consider Before Buying A BT Speaker

So, what makes a BT speaker a great choice. There are various factors that have led to the popularity of BT speakers being at an all-time high. Today, every major audio device manufacturer has BT speakers. But, as a consumer what do you need to keep in mind before purchasing a BT speaker. Let’s find out below:

  1. Driver Size

It is the driver size that makes up the soul of a BT speaker and so when choosing a speaker, make sure that the driver size is as per your requirement. An ideal BT speaker has a 40mm driver, which is a great starting point. Always keep in mind that the bigger the driver size, the bigger will be the overall size of the speaker too.

  1. Combining Convenience with Great Sound

A BT speaker comes in various sizes and can either be a small, portable device or it can be a wired BT speaker. Most BT speakers combine convenience and amazing sound quality allowing you to enjoy your music anywhere without the hassles of tangling cables or finding a power outlet.

  1. Water Resistance

If the ideal place for you to use your BT speaker is by the pool side, on the beach, or a house party that is filled with people drinking, then a BT speaker with water resistance is the ideal choice for you. Most BT speakers offer IPX5 rating which makes it the best option for all your music needs.

  1. Rechargeable Batteries

Most BT speakers have rechargeable batteries and work a minimum of 6-8 hours on one full charge. This makes them high on convenience and energy efficient. So, an average user can listen to music all day without the worry of changing batteries in the midst of a party or an important call.

  1. Visual Effects

Another feature that you should look for while selecting a BT speaker, though not an important one is their ability to add the fun factor to any party by the function of dancing lights on them. So, you can both, watch and listen to your favourite music with this cool feature.

  1. Durability

Not just in a closed space, also check how your BT speakers function in an open space. Some BT speakers are designed to handle rough usage so you might want to keep that in mind while buying one for yourself. The outer material and its design should be a useful feature to keep in mind. Most BT speakers are also protected against splashes and drops, and its attractive design looks ideal for rough, active use.

  1. Bluetooth Version

A smart speaker needs Bluetooth to function and the BT version in the device says a lot about the product. Most smartphones today have Bluetooth version 5.0 or above which makes them compatible with older versions of Bluetooth too. However, make sure to buy a BT speaker with the latest version as it even supports connectivity to a longer distance of up to 120 meters.

  1. Smart Device Compatibility

Most BT speakers can not only play music but also control voice assistants, allow handsfree calling, and pair together with another Bluetooth device. Make sure that the BT speaker you invest it comes with these features too.

  1. Play Modes

Make sure to check what all play modes is your BT speaker compatible with, before purchasing it. An ideal BT speaker will have not just the ability to play music using your phone, but also have USB connectivity, FM radio and AUX compatibility, and TF Card playability.
