Today's smart phones and tablets have become more than just a means to make calls, text or surf the Internet. As these devices increase in capacity, many people use them as mobile audio / video libraries as well. Unfortunately, the one drawback of these devices are the small, built-in speakers, that are usually not suitable for high-volume audio. Enter the Bluetooth Speaker. Able to connect wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled devices, these speakers solve the problem of small, low-volume speakers on smart phones and tablets by projecting audio from music files, videos, websites, and more with greater volume and dynamism than the device alone is capable. As an added bonus, some Bluetooth speakers are also equipped with hands-free calling, allowing you to answer calls quickly and easily from your phone.

Before you jump into purchasing a Bluetooth speaker, there are some things you should consider.

Size:
Wireless Bluetooth speakers come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from very large to quite small. However, don't let the small stature of a Bluetooth speaker fool you, while they may be small in size, they can still deliver big sound. Consider when/where/how you want to use your Bluetooth speaker and select a size that works - for traveling convenience, small speakers are ideal to slip into a backpack, briefcase or purse, allowing you to take quality audio, with Bluetooth convenience, wherever you go.

Water Resistance:
If you enjoy outdoor activities, or even listening to music in the shower, you might want to consider the water resistance of different speakers before making your selection. Speakers receive different IPX ratings, depending on their level of water/dust resistance. The table below helps explain the differences.

Operating / Standby Time:
Depending on when/how you want to use your Bluetooth speaker, you should consider the operating and standby times of the device. Operating time refers to the number of hours of active use you can get from the speaker on a single charge. The standby time refers to the number of hours the device will hold a charge when not in use. These times are based on the size of the battery, the output of the speaker, and other factors, and can vary widely by device and usage.

Additional Features
Hands-Free Calling:

Speakers featuring hands-free calling allow for calls to be projected via your speaker, interrupting music or other audio that is in progress to let you know you have a call. To answer, simply press a button to be connected to your caller.

Making a call? Simply dial the number on your Bluetooth enabled smart phone and the speaker will automatically pick up the call.

On/Off Switch:

Look for a Bluetooth speaker that has an on/off switch. This will allow you to save precious battery life when the speaker is not in use.
