The Blueprint of the Best Portable Bluetooth Speakers: Buying Guide
Posted by Angelo323 on June 21st, 2017
After much time and research, I have come up with the 10 most important metrics that you need to look at before making your decision on your new speakers.
If you can get a grasp on these 10 metrics, your understanding of the best portable speakers on this guide will skyrocket and make your decision easy, fast, and simple, saving you time and wasted money time.
When I say Bluetooth range, this means how far away from your portable Bluetooth speakers can you be? This is one of the most important metrics to consider when purchasing your speakers. You don't want to have to stand or sit right next to your speakers, because if you have to do that, what is the point of it being Bluetooth? You might as well just buy an auxiliary cord (Amazon). The whole point of Bluetooth technology is to have the freedom to move around and move away from cords. That way, with the simple press of a button a room away from your portable speakers, you can monitor your volume, songs, and whatever else without having to be right next to your speaker. Another thing I would like to mention with why I think portable Bluetooth speakers are the way to go for your listening pleasure is that this freedom means you can slide your Bluetooth-enabled device right in your pocket or store it in another room without worries of having your expensive cell phones and computers stolen when left unattended.
Here is where it can get a little complicated, but that is why I am here to help. This refers to the version of Bluetooth your portable speakers run and the codecs it supports. As it stands, there are about 7 different versions starting from v1.0 to v4.0. The reason it is in your best interest to have at least a basic understanding of this is that the better the Bluetooth technology, the better sound quality and overall performance of your portable Bluetooth speakers. It gets pretty complicated as the developments of Bluetooth go on, but as a general rule, the best portable Bluetooth speakers will operate using the latest of Bluetooth technology. Here are the versions of Bluetooth sorted from earliest to latest:
I only feature products using version2.1 or higher for the sake of only having the best speakers on the site, and to not make you stress over what to choose. It is a safe bet to know that if it is running v2.1 or better, you're going to have great sound quality. I just wanted to give you a little insight about how products were rated and looked at.
The good old-fashioned battery life metric. For anyone who does not know what is meant by this metric, I am referring to how long you can bump tunes on your speakers before you have to stick it back on a charger. Commonly used criteria to rate and review electronics, this is extraordinarily important when you are referring to the reviews of the best wireless Bluetooth speakers on this site.Visit: http://floatingbluetoothspeakerpro.com Why is it more important? Because you are talking about a product that is portable and used away from home, away from chargers and things like that. It wouldn't be one of the best if it died after an hour of use. Could you imagine having a party, and having to put the music on pause because your device is dead? Or what if you are trying to have a romantic night, listening to your favorite love songs and it suddenly dies? Talk about killing the mood. Always look for wireless speakers with good battery life through continuous use and good battery life through the products life. What I mean by the latter is if it last 2 days after a full charge when you first get it, and a month later the battery only lasts an hour.
I do not need to get into great detail about this, but it is another time metric, similar to battery life. The difference is how long your speakers take to reach 100% battery. Though I do not consider this to be a make or break criteria, it is still important to look at. I remember seeing some products on Amazon that looked super cool and was almost convinced to buy until I read that the battery life is only about 15 minutes and it takes 24 hours to charge. What is that! I just cannot believe such insanity, so remember to glance at how long you're it takes to charge your new speakers.
This one is self-explanatory, but it is also one of the most important criteria to consider. Just because your speakers are wireless and utilize Bluetooth technology, does not mean that they are going to be the portable speakers your after! That's right ladies and gentleman, you heard it first. It might be wireless, have the latest Bluetooth technology with the coolest design you have ever seen, but one thing. It also weighs 50 pounds! That isn't very portable, is it? Or maybe it is you bodybuilders, but I think you get my point as to why I through this criterion in the buying guide. You want something you can easily pick up and take out the door, fit it anywhere, and get on with the show. Or maybe you don't care as long as there are no wires and it has Bluetooth. Maybe you just want something you can occasionally take to supply whatever scene you're heading to with music. This is why it is important to look at the dimensions so that you can find the best portable Bluetooth speakers that fit you.
This metric is more of a preference. What do you think is cool looking? What is the most aesthetically pleasing? Which is going to turn the most heads? Purely preference. I included all sorts of different sizes and designs to feature on the website to be sure to appeal to all personal styles and likings.
One of the most if not the most important criteria of all in choosing the best portable Bluetooth speakers. How do the speakers sound? You don't want muffled, low tunes coming from a seemingly 50s style radio in a modern day technological body. No. You want to hear all the highs and lows, the bass and treble, melodies and rhythms with crystal clear lyrics. An important thing to look at. I made sure to only have the highest audio quality speakers on the site, so with any option you go, you will never miss a beat.
The reviews metric is more of a reminder to always read reviews when they are available. Not just for Bluetooth portable speakers, but anything you buy really. That way you can help avoid any unwanted surprises. Gauge how products have worked for them. At the same time though, you have to take reviews with a grain of salt. Some people are biased towards products because they don't like other brands, or they had one bad experience and are mad and blame it on the product. Read, gather evidence, and form your own opinion, not copy someone else.
Another thing to remember is that when you are looking at ratings and reviews, look at how many reviews the product has. The more reviews a product has, the more realistic the rating is going to be. For example, Say product x has 1 review that says it is a terrible product, and product y has 100 reviews saying it is a bad product; chances are the product x could actually still be a great product because it has one review from 1 biased consumer. Product y is probably an actual bad product because a lot of people testify to this statement that it is a bad product.
Always remember to always do thorough research on your devices and gadgets and to form your own opinions, and have more than one way to compare items and products. The more thorough you are, the happier you will be with your purchases.
This metric does not determine whether or not I included any speaker on the best portable Bluetooth speakers list, but rather it is a necessity to find out whether or not your Bluetooth-enabled device is compatible with your speakers. You can pick out the best, most magnificent, ultra-portable Bluetooth speakers, buy it, and then come to find out your music playing phone isn't compatible! In another word, all you need to do is find out whether your device will work with those particular speakers, and from my research, most speakers are compatible with most devices, always just double check so you don't disappoint yourself.
Last but not least of our criteria is the price. Are you on a budget, or are you looking for the best of the best of the best at any price? I did my best to find the best valued Bluetooth portable speakers, but hey technology as cool as this is going to have a price tag. There are a wide array of products at different price ranges for you to look at, and for the technology you are getting, trust me, these speakers are worth the money.Also See: Portable Bluetooth, Bluetooth Speakers, Battery Life, Portable Speakers, Speakers, Reviews, Product
