Wireless speakers and headphones - how to make a choice?

Audio devices based on Bluetooth technology are popular primarily among active people and frequent travellers. Thanks to them we can listen to our favourite music in all conditions. However, it will be necessary to choose the right kind of them.

In the network we may encounter frequent disposal of audiophiles, as if the wireless devices provide a much lower quality of sound in comparison with models connected via cable. In the case of cheap equipment this is also the case, but we must not forget that there are many really solid devices available on the market, thanks to which the comfort of listening to music (and not only) will be very high.

In addition to all this, the most important advantages of wireless models should be added. We are talking here, above all, about the mobility of such solutions. We will use them everywhere, without worrying about the need to use the right cable. Bluetooth headphones will free us from the tangle of cables, which can lead even the most impatient out of balance.

We must not forget that both speakers and wireless headphones can play sound from many different devices, as well as from memory cards - we do not need to pair them with a computer, phone or tablet. This is especially true for streaming services.

Important choice

Of course, all this does not mean that the equipment in question is free from defects. These depend primarily on their quality. Every speaker and every Bluetooth headset will eventually run out - how long will it take? This depends on the specific models.

The same applies, for example, to the range of operation and the already mentioned sound quality. All this means that when buying these products we should pay attention to all the technical parameters describing them.

How do I select a Bluetooth speaker?

At the beginning it is worth mentioning, that this "wirelessness" in case of speakers can only concern the manner of data transmission. Some of them can be powered from the network or via USB (with a cable we can connect them, for example, to a laptop). So if we want full mobility, we should choose portable speakers powered by batteries or rechargeable batteries.

In this case, it is also important how long the Bluetooth speaker can operate without having to connect it for charging. Usually it is a few hours. Battery models are much less popular than rechargeable models because they require frequent battery replacement.

Another important parameter in the case of wireless speakers is the range of their operation, i.e. the distance from which we will be able to transmit sound to them. In the case of high quality models, the range is from several to several dozen meters. However, we must bear in mind that the information provided by producers over time is not confirmed in reality. So if we want to get as far as possible, we should get acquainted with the reviews of the equipment we are interested in and the opinions of people who have already had the opportunity to use it.

Of course, we must not forget about the parameters related to the quality of played sounds. This one depends, among other things, on the frequency range of the sound that can be reproduced. The wider the scope, the better. Also very important is the power that tells us how loudly a Bluetooth speaker can play. For example, if you want to have a party in the garden, you should check it out.

In many cases, it is also important to pay attention to all the functions to be operated and the equipment to be fitted. These include the ability to play music from external media (e.g. memory cards or pendrives), built-in subwoofers, a remote control and all the technologies used.

How to select Bluetooth headphones

Choosing a good wireless headset will look just like buying speakers in many ways. We must pay attention first of all to the range of their operation (it can range from 9 to even 100 meters), as well as the maximum working time (from 2 to 100 hours). To this must also be added the bandwidth of sound. The sensitivity of the headphones, from which we can deduce how loud they can play, will also be extremely important.

Before making a purchase, we also need to think about the design of the equipment. There are earphones available on the market, which perfectly isolate us from the sounds coming from the outside, as well as in-ear and endodontic models. The first one is recommended for players and people looking for headphones to watch movies, while the second one will work better on the move and while practicing various sports (it is also worth considering buying models with special headband stabilizing headphones).

Of course, let's not forget about functions and additional equipment. This includes the built-in microphone, memory card reader, radio or the ability to make phone calls and control devices connected to headphones.

As you can see, the choice of both loudspeakers and wireless headphones must be made taking into account all the most important issues. Only then will we be able to purchase the equipment that best meets our needs and requirements.
