Similarly, there are many devices available for charging in today’s time, so why add more. Bluetooth speakers are wireless, so it’s imperative that they have long-lasting battery life so you won’t have to charge it as often. Bluetooth speakers should have at least 6-8 hours of battery life.
Pay attention to size and weight
As you might know, Bluetooth speakers in general are lightweight and easy to carry, but there are bulky options available as well. Check the weight and other dimensions and go for the light option if you want a portable one. Small speakers can also be very powerful.
Audio quality and bluetooth version
Many things come together to deliver great audio output in a Bluetooth speaker. These include frequency response, impedance, and sensitivity. These will vary across price categories, and the quality of the audio will vary depending on how much you want to spend. Typically a premium Bluetooth speaker will have a frequency response between 20Hz to 20kHz. Similarly the impedance will be between 6 ohms and 8 ohms. Also, speakers that support Bluetooth version 5.0 will offer a longer connectivity range.
smart is better
Before buying a bluetooth speaker, you have to check whether the bluetooth speaker is smart or not. In other words, it can get access to voice commands or it can work with other smart gadgets in your home.
water and dust resistant
If you want a speaker for outdoor then check if it has an IP67 rating. The IP68 rated speaker can be submerged in water for about 30 minutes without any damage.
port to speaker check
A bluetooth speaker has only 1 port for charging. This could be a MicroUSB port or a Type-C port. Check it out before buying a speaker. Also if you can see 3.5mm jack or aux it can help to connect speaker to laptop or phone when bluetooth connectivity is a problem.
