Technical characteristics of the Bluetooth speakers.
Audio 360 degrees.
Formerly reserved for high-end speakers, the audio 360 degrees is finally democratized. As its name suggests, this technology lets you broadcast the sound throughout a room (unlike some speakers that emit sound in one direction).
The autonomy of Bluetooth speakers has improved considerably in recent years and it is now easy to find products that work at least seven hours between charges.
Some speakers also offer the possibility of being used as backup batteries, which is especially convenient when you’re on the move.
In addition to Bluetooth, some loudspeaker models feature a Wi-Fi connection.
The Bluetooth allows you to connect devices in an area of 10 meters, therefore it is necessary that your smartphone (or tablet) is in the same room as your speaker so that the sound is not chopped and discontinuous.
The Wi-fi, meanwhile, allows a scope to be much more important. You can use a speaker WiFi even if the device used is located at the other end of your apartment.
This feature is convenient, but may not be so essential. In addition, you will sometimes need to download a specific application to connect your device to the speaker.
From time to time, you’ll find Bluetooth speakers that shipped with a remote control. This accessory is especially useful if you use an enclosure WiFI and your smartphone/tablet is not near.
The waterproofness .
If you plan to use your speaker outdoors (camping, beach ..), prefer a model that is resistant to water, dust and shocks. When you carry your speaker, we recommend that you keep it in a protective cover to prevent it spoil too quickly.
