Bluetooth speakers have become more popular in recent years. They are easy to play music on the go and they produce some quality sound. Finding the speaker that is best for you can be a bit daunting, especially with hundreds of brands on the market. If you are curious about what to look for in a speaker but you do not know where to start, here are five things to look for when selecting a Bluetooth speaker.
Battery life for your speaker should be long-lasting
The most important feature to consider with most portable devices is how long the battery life will last. You do not want to take your speaker out of the house expecting all-day playback just for it to die for only a couple of hours. On average, most Bluetooth speakers’ batteries last about 6-10 hours. Our JBL Clip 3 boasts a playback time of 10 hours depending on volume and audio content.
Choose a design that works for your lifestyle
The next thing you need to consider is what you are using your speaker for. If you are looking for something to take with on the go, then something smaller and more compact may be the way for you. If you plan to have something more stationary, then you can go for something a bit bigger. Knowing how you are going to use your speaker is going to determine what kind of Bluetooth you want to purchase.
Being water-resistant comes in handy, even if you don’t take it to the pool
This may seem like such a small feature to consider, however, if you plan to take your Bluetooth speaker out of the house, making sure it is water-resistant is important. Our NVX GlowXR3 is both weather-resistant and water-resistant with color-changing LED lights, perfect for any indoor or outdoor party.
Sound quality should be examined thoroughly
Sound quality is another important feature to look for in a speaker. Unfortunately, you cannot test out each speaker to see which one works for you. So, how do you know which is best for you? When researching Bluetooth speakers, there are some features to take a look at.
- output power: the amount of Watts emitted by the speaker measured in decibels.
- frequency range: the greater range of frequency produced by your speaker, the clear the sound is going to be.
- sound system: each system has a number of channels, which are the speakers that will be producing the sound.
- impedance: the lower the impedance, the better quality of sound your speaker will produce.
Have a budget in mind when looking for the right speaker
Have a budget in mind when looking for the proper Bluetooth speaker. Just because a Bluetooth speaker cost over $100 doesn’t mean it is automatically the best choice. You do not have to break the bank for quality speakers. On the other hand, don’t buy the cheapest speaker either. Find something that is going to work for you.
