Bluetooth is one of the easiest connectivity options, listed in most of gadgets as a primary source of data transfer protocol. Bluetooth 4 is the latest version, optimized to transfer data with speed of 150MBPS between two connected gadgets. Bluetooth speakers were practical device in last five years. My first Bluetooth sound device was a headphone from an unknown Chinese brand. The Headphone had bulky size, poor sound output with noisy background and poor battery backup. Still it was a wonder device for my friends. I don’t complain since Bluetooth sound device was in the initial phase of development. Today’s Bluetooth gadgets, especially our talking point sound devices have been improved a lot in last five years.
Bluetooth speaker is one of my favourite gadgets as it is wire free, easy to carry and configure during the journey. In 2 minute Maggi world, the tiny sound gadgets offer much needed relaxation in your office time as you can play some cool music in free time. Also, it offers more help in your office work. You have developed an official presentation on your smartphone/ tablet and you need to share that in office meetings. If you have a Bluetooth speaker, you will be able sharing you’re thought without missing clear audio. Further, while friends are together, play your favorite songs to make your small gathering a musical success.
Coming to the selected part, there are some key specs of a speaker, which requires more attention while picking a quality Bluetooth Speaker.
Battery: Bluetooth devices are wired free equipment. Even a quality device does make much sense without quality battery.
Sound Output: This depends on the quality of the magnet, watt strength, and co related to the inbuilt power of the device.
In the current list of top six Bluetooth speakers, you will find a quality speaker with an awesome sound output, funky colour, and unusual, but trendy design.
