Why get a Bluetooth speaker?

Easy to set up and use

Bluetooth speakers are relatively easy to use; once you connect your phone, laptop, iPad, or another smart device to the speaker, you’ll be able to play any type of audio. Unlike most speaker setups, you don’t have to deal with wires, making the installation process easy. A few of Best Buy’s top selling portable speakers include UE Wonderboom2, Bose Soundlink, and Sony SRS-XB43.

Bluetooth speakers are very versatile

Many Bluetooth speakers can be played indoors or outdoors. Many also come with the added feature of being waterproof (check out all waterproof Bluetooth speakers here)and can even be washed if it gets dirty. Some Bluetooth speakers are also dustproof, so you can take it to places like the beach, desert, or forest without having to worry about compromising your sound.

Many of these Bluetooth speakers are also small enough and stylish enough that they can fit on a shelf or a counter without compromising the aesthetic of your home.

While not every Bluetooth speaker will deliver in this category, many Bluetooth speakers have impressive sound quality despite their small size. Some Bluetooth speakers even allow you to connect multiple speakers together so you can achieve surround sound or fill a space or room with audio.

If you are buying for a music lover, make sure to prioritize quality drivers and smart audio-tuning tech so it can handle louder volumes without compromising on sound quality.

Bluetooth speakers can be durable

If you are shopping for a Bluetooth speaker, chances are it will probably be traveling outside of the house. Look for a durable speaker that can handle being tossed around in a bag or being dropped a few times. Finding one that is slightly more rugged can mean that the speaker can last for many years.

Wireless and rechargeable

One of the biggest draws of a Bluetooth speaker is the fact that it is wireless and portable. Many speakers have batteries that can last for ten to twenty-four hours and are rechargeable. As a bonus, many Bluetooth speakers will allow you to connect your smartphone device and charge it while listening to music.

Match a speaker to the recipient’s personality

Regardless of the person’s preference, you can find something that fits their sizing needs and aesthetic desires. Bluetooth speakers come in all shapes and sizes: rectangle, square, round, tiny, medium, or big. Many speakers are small enough to fit into a small bag and are lightweight and portable. Every color, pattern, and material is also possible. Some speakers are eco-friendly and made from mostly recycled materials.

Buying a Bluetooth speaker can be a great gift; they are durable and portable, allowing them to lighten up a party or a day at the beach or the ski hill.
