When we were first introduced to the world of bluetooth technology, it had to do with transferring data from one mobile device to the next one. We would transfer mp3 music, videos among other files. Then manufacturers behind that technology increased the speed at which data could be transferred from one device to another since the initial speed was to slow.
Today, we are glad to have wireless bluetooth speakers which use low powered radio signals to communicate. Such radio signals, when they are low powered, can be used to transmit data up to a range of 10 meters or 33 feet away. The low power signals are considered the most efficient, though some devices are capable of channeling larger power output to boost signal range that cover a radius of up to 100 meters or 300 feet away.
The original intention of bluetooth was not to create a high powered or high distance protocol of communication, but a personal area network. Now, a personal area network is meant to allow multiple devices share information as long as they are within the range of Bluetooth capabilities. For example, one can connect up to 8 devices at one particular time.
Today, bluetooth technology is robust, and it’s even changing the way we listen to music these days. Most wireless bluetooth speakers currently have a range of 15 to 35 feet away. This is a comfortable range, enough to cover all rooms in your house. This also means that you can always sit in your living room while controlling speakers in your bedroom. In fact, with a set of wireless bluetooth speakers, you’ll have complete control over your audio system in a remote way.
In addition to this, such speakers work with all bluetooth-enabled devices in the house, so you can always listen to music from your phone or MP3 player effortlessly. However, if you don’t like the idea of using a separate MP3 player, you can always use your phone to control what you want to listen to.
It’s also important to note that the operating frequency of bluetooth is 2.4 gigahertz, so there is a likelihood that the frequency will interfere with devices within the vicinity. On the other hand, since bluetooth is low powered protocol and the data flowing is also digital, interference is usually very minimal. Other devices that may use a 2.4 gigahertz of frequency include video game controllers, wireless access points, cordless phones etc. So in case you suspect interference, try to switch off any one of the devices you suspect is causing this interference before listening to music via your wireless bluetooth speakers.
The only downside of these speakers is the fact that they come at a cost. However, if you can afford them, the better it is for you since you’ll be enjoying versatility. These speakers also tend to be more compact, so if they don’t have any wires in them, they can be used for outdoor purposes comfortably. Currently there are many brands retailing in the market, so just do your research online to find some good quality wireless speakers which are affordable as well.
