Home Speaker Buying Tips
If you’re looking to buy a Bluetooth speaker for home use there are a few things you should consider before making any decisions. The list below will highlight a few things you should bear in mind before choosing the best Bluetooth speakers for your home.
Battery vs Mains powered – If you’re planning to use it primarily as a home speaker it would be wiser to go for a speaker that’s mains powered, battery powered speakers will obviously need recharging after a few hours whereas a mains powered one will always be ready when you need it.
Connection options – Some speaker offer nothing but a standard Bluetooth connection and an Aux input for older wired audio devices, if you want to use streaming services like Spotify, Pandora and internet radio you should go for a home speaker that has built in Wi-Fi so you can connect to online services.
Multi connect speakers – Some speakers allow you to connect to other speakers within your home and play music simultaneously from one audio source. If this feature appeals to you then you should get a speaker with a multi room function.
Backyard use – If you’re planning to use your speaker in the backyard from time to time it might be worth while getting a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, so if you’re caught in a sudden shower or the inevitable beer spill – your speaker will be protected.
Connection and playback options -If you’re not tech savvy you should consider getting a speaker that has NFC one touch connection. Bluetooth speakers such as the Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 comes NFC ready so there’s no hassle in getting your speaker up and running.
