Nowadays Bluetooth technology is becoming popular day by day by replacing wired technology. Due to these Bluetooth speakers are very much in trend and very popular among the youth.
These Bluetooth speakers are very popular because they are very comfortable and easy to carry. Bluetooth speaker is a very handy tool but it is very difficult to choose the best Bluetooth speaker due to a variety of products available in the market.
Bluetooth speakers come in different shapes and sizes with different price ranges. It becomes very difficult to choose the best Bluetooth speakers by reading specifications as sound quality is a very subjective topic.
But you guys don’t have to worry as in this article I am going to tell you how to choose the Best Bluetooth speakers according to your needs.
Things to consider while buying Bluetooth speakers
The following are the things that should keep in mind while buying a Bluetooth speaker :
Battery life is the most important factor that you should consider while buying a Bluetooth speaker. Suppose you are partying in your house and suddenly the battery of the speaker gets finished, all your party will be spoiled.
So, you should consider those Bluetooth speakers which offer you good battery life. Choose those speakers which offer you at least 6 hours of battery backup.
Generally, small speakers come with a small battery as compared to large speakers that come with big batteries. You will not get the battery backup which the manufacturers of the brands are claiming, the battery life of the Bluetooth speaker depends on their usage.
If you listen to music on full volumes then more power will be used by the speaker which drains the battery faster and thereby giving you less battery life.
On the other hand, if you listen to music on medium volumes then less power will be consumed by the Bluetooth speaker and thereby giving good battery life to you.
The next important thing to consider while buying a Bluetooth speaker is the sound quality. The main reason for which a buyer buys a Bluetooth speaker is to experience the premium sound quality of the speakers.
You should never compromise with the sound quality while buying a Bluetooth speaker. If you have to pay a little extra for better sound quality then you should definitely pay extra for experiencing a better sound quality
While buying a Bluetooth speaker you should also consider where you will use the Bluetooth speaker.
If you will not use the Bluetooth speaker outside and mostly going to use it inside the house in your room then you should go for Bose soundlink mini 2 because it is very best in the quality and durability department and is perfect for home use.
On the contrary, if you will use the Bluetooth speaker mostly outside then you should consider those speakers which are waterproof with IPX ( Ingress Protection ) rating of at least 4.
Bluetooth speakers for outdoor purposes should have good output power which offers high sound so that it can be easily audible in the noisy environment.
One more thing to consider if you are going to use Bluetooth speaker outdoors is the battery backup which is very important especially when you are camping and won’t have access to any power source.
Drivers are the major part or component of the speaker and it is important that the Bluetooth speaker you are going to buy has the best drivers installed.
How the speaker will sound is totally dependent on how many drivers are installed in the Bluetooth speaker. More the number of drivers better will be the quality of the sound of Bluetooth speaker.
Bigger the size of the drivers bigger will be the size of the speakers. Big speakers come with two or more drivers which makes the sound louder and better while small Bluetooth speakers normally come with a single driver.
Nowadays mostly Bluetooth speakers come with 40 mm drivers which are more than enough to produce better quality sound.
If you are the person who likes to listen to music with extended bass then you should go for speakers that come with passive radiators installed which helps in producing more bass when it vibrates.
The frequency range in the Bluetooth speaker is measured in Hertz and is described in range. The wider the frequency range of the Bluetooth speaker, the better will be the sound experience of the speaker.
The range factor alone doesn’t guarantee a good sound, it also depends on the person to person. People of different ages have different abilities to hear frequency.
In Bluetooth speaker, the bass is heard around the frequency range of 20 Hertz to 250 Hertz, the vocals are heard around the frequency range of 250 Hertz to 4000 Hertz and the tribble is heard around the frequency range of up to 20000 Hertz.
The next thing you should keep in mind while buying a Bluetooth speaker is connectivity. Wired connection in a Bluetooth speaker is always a good feature which is very useful.
Wired connection in a Bluetooth speaker is a very useful feature to save battery on the phone or the speaker and also helps in getting better sound quality. So, always check for an auxiliary connector ( also known as aux in the connector ) in a Bluetooth speaker.
Nowadays, many Bluetooth speakers come with NFC ( Near Field Communication ) capabilities which help you in pairing the devices quickly.
In iPhones, you don’t have the NFC capabilities which is a quite disappointment but it is very useful for android phones as android phones come with NFC capabilities.
The microphone is also a nice feature in the Bluetooth speaker to answer calls directly through a speaker like a speakerphone.
Microphone helps you in interacting with the phone’s virtual assistant which is really a cool feature for some people. If you are a fan of the microphone functionality then make sure your Bluetooth speaker has this functionality.
Another thing that you should consider while buying a Bluetooth speaker is what is the Bluetooth version of the speaker.
The Bluetooth version determines the audio transmission quality and connectivity between the phone and the Bluetooth speaker. The Bluetooth version is an important factor in a Bluetooth speaker.
Nowadays the latest Bluetooth speaker come with Bluetooth version 4 or higher. If your Bluetooth speaker has the latest Bluetooth version then there is no worry about connectivity and audio transmission quality.
So, make sure the Bluetooth speaker you are going to buy has the latest Bluetooth version.
The next thing you should consider while buying a Bluetooth speaker is a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port.
Having a USB port in the Bluetooth speaker helps you outdoors or when you are at a friend’s place when don’t have the bundled cables with you. Many Bluetooth speakers come with a USB port that can be charged with power banks also.
Although you can also charge your phone with these USB port of the speaker but I don’t recommend it as it drains the battery of the speaker.
If you are going to use the Bluetooth speaker outdoor then style becomes an important factor of the buying guide. Nowadays Bluetooth speakers come in a variety of designs and styles.
If you are thinking to use these speakers at a party or at a beach then you don’t have to worry as these Bluetooth speakers come in variety of designs and colors that draw the attention of the people.
While buying a Bluetooth speaker you should also consider the size of the speaker. Bluetooth speakers come in different sizes and shapes.
You should consider those Bluetooth speakers which are lightweight and have a compact design so that you can carry it anywhere you want. It should be ultra-light and compact so that it can easily fit in your bag.
If you are looking for these types of speakers then it should not be more than 15 cm in size.
The next thing you should consider while buying a Bluetooth speaker is what extra features are being offered by the brands. Today the use of the speaker is not limited to just streaming and listening to music it is more than that.
Smart speakers are the next big thing which is coming and trend and are becoming very popular in India. For example, Alexa and Google home series are very popular in India.
Another feature that you should look for while buying a Bluetooth speaker is companion application support. The companion application support helps you to manage multiple speakers and proved to be a very useful feature.
The next feature is the compatibility of pairing multiple speakers which helps to produce a louder sound. Many Bluetooth speakers come with this feature and let you pair with multiple speakers for better and enhanced audio experience.
Last but not least is the price. Price is an important factor that a buyer should keep in mind before buying a Bluetooth speaker. You should know how much you have to spend on the speakers according to your budget.
You should not buy those speakers which are very expensive but you should go for those speakers that provide the best value for you.
