So you are looking for the best bluetooth wireless speaker for personal entertainment? maybe entertainment or whatever. Nowadays, wireless speakers comes into different types and vast price ranges. How do you know what is right for you?
Take a look at these three tips to help you choose the right wireless speaker for you.
Tip # 1: We start here – Bluetooth, WiFi or both?
Bluetooth Speaker: We see all of these and are probably the most popular type of wireless speaker for streaming your music.
Pro: It is easy to carry around and can take it anywhere with you. Bluetooth works with a vast range of devices. Examples: Android, iPhone, Google Smartphone, etc. PRICE! Bluetooth is usually cheaper than a wifi speaker.
Con: Something can be heavy, and you can only stream one device at a time. A limited range of up to 33 feet.
WiFi Speaker: Do you have a network at home? Great! You can take advantage of this by adding a WiFi speaker to it.
Pro: wi-fi Speaker are stronger and they have more stable connection. You can stream multiple speakers. Also have a longer range than Bluetooth. Usually they can go up to about 200 feet, but I would keep it lower than that. You don’t want to push it too far.
Con: Bandwidth! Yes if you do not have reliable bandwidth then it can affect your speakers. If you have tons of devices connected to WiFi, it can haggle a lot of bandwidth which will then reduce the quality of your audio. Some can be very pricey.
– Both Bluetooth and WiFi: If you want all of this, both can be good for you.
Pro: More flexibility with both. Use WiFi if you are walking around the house with your phone and do not want to lose connection or connect Bluetooth if you are on the way and want to take it with you. People over and someone wants to play music? The easiest way here is to connect them to Bluetooth, and they are ready to go.
Con: It comes down to the price. You are going to pay more because it has more features than just Bluetooth or WiFi option.
Okay, now that you’ve read the pros and cons of each, it takes us to the next tip.
Tip # 2: What would you use the speaker for? This is an excellent question to start with. What is your primary use of the speaker? Is it for indoors, travel, etc. on the deck.
If you are out on the patio or grilling, Bluetooth or WiFi can work here. There are WiFi speakers that are meant for outdoor, or if you want something right next to a table or railing and want to move it around, a Bluetooth would be the best option.
If you are going for a walk in the yard, hiking, or traveling with a Bluetooth speaker and looking for something that is either waterproof or waterproof and rugged, just call it Leave it. I leave everything…
If you are mainly listening to audio inside, then I would go with the wifi speaker. You will not have to worry about the signal because WiFi has long distances and objects will not affect the signal. With Bluetooth, the walls will affect the Bluetooth signal.
If you go three rooms up from your Bluetooth speaker, the signal has to pass through walls that will weaken the signal. This can cause your device to drop in or out or disconnect.
With WiFi, you won’t have to worry about just making sure to keep it under 200 feet. You have to worry about whether your router or WiFi can handle it.
Now your brain should move a bit in a certain direction. Let’s go to tip number three.
Tip # 3: Functionality! There are some things we want for sure or in our wireless speakers.
Voice and remote control: Voice can be fun, you don’t need to leave your place, but it can also be a pain if it doesn’t make sense to you.
Sometimes utterances can affect voice recognition. With a remote that can be an actual remote or app on your device, a more efficient way to control your wireless speakers may be.
Online Music Service: Here is the Amazon Echo, a good example for a WiFi speaker. Here I can access my music account to play music like Spotify, Pandora, and more.
–Built-in mic or hands-free speakerphone – This functionality is great. This feature is only available on some Bluetooth speakers such as Anchor Soundcore 2. When connected to your Bluetooth speaker and someone calls you, you don’t have to disconnect from the speaker to take the call.
Input and output: pretty much every wireless speaker comes with an auxiliary port. Here you can connect other devices to it such as TV. There are some speakers like the Anchor Soundcore Boost speaker has a USB port where you can plug your phone in and charge your phone.
The output can be used to add a subwoofer while watching a movie or when you are entertaining and just want more of your audio.
