Earlier, some years back, Bluetooth used to be one of the most exciting and popular feature in mobile phones. Sharing things wirelessly from phone to phone was easy and I usually felt excited after we relieved an image (even though it used to be highly pixilated) or a song. Now-a-days, we all have internet in our phones which has made sharing a lot easier and it does not stress you much. Lest we forget about the advantages of Bluetooth feature altogether, they have added Bluetooth speakers in the line. Almost everything is going wireless and Bluetooth speakers offer one of the best sounds without getting entangled in a coil of wires.
If you’re looking cheap (yes, they are comparatively cheap) and wireless speakers, then Bluetooth is the best option you can think of. These speakers work well with almost all smart phones, including Blackberry, Windows phone and Android phones and tablets, and iPhones and iPads also.
It should be noted that many Bluetooth speakers (though not all) come with rechargeable batteries, so that they can be carried around easily from room to room. There are some even smaller speakers (travel speakers), which have a speakerphone function also. They have a range of around 30 feet, which means you can use you phone as a remote.
What to Look For in a Bluetooth Speaker
Every Bluetooth speaker comes with its share of strengths and weaknesses. Some are smaller and easily portable units and some others are larger and more powerful units. Some have an exciting and trend- setting design that works perfectly for your small and cozy room, but the same may noy be right to put in business- like environment. There are some basic points to follow when you go shopping for a Bluetooth speaker.
The first and foremost thing is to look for the sound quality. No matter how well it is designed or how smart and chic the speakers may look, if the quality of sound isn’t proper, the speaker isn’t worth your money or anything. You should never sacrifice substance for its looks. Another most important factor to look for is the frequency response. The number of speakers you get for yourself is also important.
you can recharge the internal battery of the speakers by simply plugging it on your wall. The average battery life is around 6 to 8 hours, but that completely depends on your usage. You should also check whether they have a basic in- line speaker (for which the cords can be purchased) apart from the Bluetooth connectivity. Depending on use, the battery life is around six to eight hours.
