- Finalist for Best Bass Bluetooth Speaker 2017
Since 1968, Cambridge Audio has been making products that help people to get the most out of their music. Their aim is for customers using their products to get a clear sound. They also promise that their customers will hear their music in a more natural way. What does that mean? They claim that by using their products, you will hear your music the way it was originally made to be heard. Cambridge Audio has won many awards throughout the years for their quality products.
For years Cambridge Audio was known for their traditional hi-fi and home cinema electronics. But in 2013, they made their first wireless speakers. This has proven to be a smart move since wireless speakers continue to get more popular.
Almost everyone listens to music on the go and wireless speakers have provided a convenient, portable way to listen to music without losing sound quality. With technology improving, companies continue to come out with small portable speakers that produce a surprisingly clear, powerful sound.
If you don’t have one already, you soon will likely be looking for your own wireless speaker.
Criteria For A Great Wireless Speaker
When choosing a wireless speaker, finding one that has good sound quality is of top priority. It should produce a clear sound and not lose this clarity when playing music at high volumes. Even if it is a small speaker, it should produce a big sound.
For portable wireless speakers, it is important that they have a substantial battery life. Since you will likely be using these on the go, be sure to check the number of playing hours it will give you. Also, check how long it takes to fully recharge the battery.
A portable speaker should be, well, easily portable. It should not be a big, bulky, heavy speaker. Look for ones that are small and light-weight.
Durability is an important thing to look for when it comes to wireless speakers. Since you may be using them for indoor as well as outdoor use, choose one that will last. You don’t want to buy one that will easily be damaged.
