Exploring Mobile Speakers
Mobile Bluetooth speakers let you take your audio with you, whether you're on a hike or simply going to the next room. They come in various shapes, sizes, and price points to satisfy your needs. In addition to their portability, Bluetooth speakers are great for multi-room audio, outdoors, or stereo sound. You can accessorize them with carrying cases, mounts, and stands, so you can properly protect and display them.
How Do Bluetooth Speakers Work?
Instead of using a cable to connect to the sound source, portable wireless speakers use Bluetooth, a technology that allows two devices to exchange data over airwaves, like cell phones do. Bluetooth works over short distances and doesn't depend on an internet connection. Once paired with your computer, phone, or another compatible device, you control the output of your speaker with an app.
What Are the Advantages of Mobile Speakers?
Mobile speakers are small, wireless, and can pair with almost any smart device, be it a phone, computer, or tablet. While the versatility is nice, mobile speakers can produce great sound as well. For instance, one device in the family of Bose Bluetooth speakers, the SoundLink, produces fantastic sound while being only 3.2 x 6 x 3.2 inches with drivers, a built-in mic and two inputs.
Choosing a Bluetooth Speaker
The best Bluetooth speaker for you depends on your budget and how you plan on using it. Consider the following:
- Do you want it while running, hiking, or working outdoors? If so, consider a small, durable speaker with straps, like the Bose SoundLink Micro.
- Looking to improve your home theater sound? Consider a bigger speaker with a large power output.
- Do you want a lot of bass? If so, get a speaker with subwoofers.
