Choosing your Portable & Wireless Speaker

 

665-Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM_portable&wirelessspeakerTechnologies in play in portable & wireless speakers

The technologies in play in portable & wireless speakers are many and you should note them down carefully.

 

Bluetooth is the first name that comes to mind in relation to portable & wireless speakers. Every modern handheld device has Bluetooth integrated and this means that you can connect to your Bluetooth speaker irrespective of the handheld device that you have. Only remember that a Bluetooth speaker can only connect to your handheld device if the distance between the two is up to 33 feet.

 

But when it comes to the best in wireless speakers, WiFi packs a punch over Bluetooth. Bluetooth speakers sometimes cause distortion in sound but with Wifi, that will not happen. With higher resolution audio transmission possible in WiFi speakers, premium speakers perform at their best when connected through WiFi. The only issue with these speakers is that they cannot connect with your handheld device.

 

NFC or Near Field Communication is something you will hear a lot about when shopping for portable & wireless speakers. However, this technology is kind of Bluetooth and the two devices really have to be close together. The pairing is done by tapping the two devices together. Keep in mind that iOS devices don't support NFC.

 

DLNA or Digital Living Network Alliance is a company that offers an open protocol for transmitting media files over WiFi. However, it is only compatible with Android devices and can be slow at times. But when it comes to portable & wireless speakers, you are better off with Bluetooth.

 

Portable & wireless speakers that are easy to carry

 

Now that the technologies have been explained, let us focus on the actual speakers and what you should look for in them. We will start with portability. You will choose portable & wireless speakers because you want to carry them around and a large speaker will not allow you to do that. As you shop around, make sure you focus on those speakers that are smaller in size and yet produce magnificent sound. When you go through the list of the best wireless speakers, you will find that almost all of them are rather compact in size.

Look for strength and durability

You will likely carry your portable & wireless speakers around and a bit of durability will always help. Some of these speakers can be notoriously soft and can easily get damaged and a bit of sturdiness and ruggedness will always help. Some of these speakers can be more expensive because they are made out of stronger materials, but if you are an outdoor person, there is no harm spending a bit more. The other point about the durability of these speakers is waterproofing. If you go out and it starts to rain, the water can damage the speakers if they are not designed to keep the water away. Again, the price could be higher but depending on your need, it is well worth paying it.

 

Multi-room portable & wireless speakers

If you are looking for a musical home, opt for multi-room portable & wireless speakers. The speakers can be spread all over your home and connected over WiFi and you can always listen to audio wherever you are inside your home. These are again pricey, but with the kind of sound that they produce, they are good buys. Sonos is a pioneer of such speakers, but there are other excellent models to consider too.
