Selection Criteria of a Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
There are a great variety of bluetooth speakers to choose from. Some speakers cram in as much functionality as the device can handle while keeping the price low, others value aesthetics and premium build rather than the functionalities. A concise and clear guide is therefore necessary so as to help with the selection. The most important selection criteria are included below:
- Audio Quality – Many speakers have apt-x high fidelity audio quality which provides a warm, rich and vibrant sound quality. A speaker that balances good treble and bass is essential for great sound reproduction
- Compatibility – Since we are looking at bluetooth speakers, it is imperative that one is sure that such a device is compatible and is able to connect to the device i.e. phone or tablet.
- Play back time – Again this is an important factor to consider. A speaker with a longer playback time will be convenient as it takes time before it is recharged again.
- Controls – This is a matter of personal preference. If you want a remote controlled bluetooth speaker or not.
- Speakers for hands free calls – Some speakers act as speaker-phones and have built in microphone into them. Now that the bluetooth speaker will actually be paired with your phone, you might consider having an option of taking calls with it
- Size and weight – Small and light is always with superior audio quality is always better. This is for the sake of portability. Heavy and big speakers are difficult to carry around.
