What Parameters do You Need to Look at When Buying a Bluetooth Portable Speaker

1 Depending on your preference

A Look at the appearance: money is hard to buy, I am happy, and appearance is justice. The most important thing is to look comfortable.

    B Listening feeling: Only when you feel good is really good. If you can hear it offline, just choose one that you “have ears” to buy.

    Look at the sound quality: (four parameters)

    First explain the concepts: what is the sound quality:

    The sound quality of the speaker: To put it bluntly, it is the degree to which the speaker restores the original sound (timbre). Any original sound has a specific timbre and quality, whether it is a song, running water, or a bird.

    Because sound is an audio signal, it needs to be played outside through speakers/speakers. The speakers and speakers are not perfect, so there will be corresponding changes when played, and the better the sound quality, the smaller the changes.

    Good sound quality: listening to music is like being there; listening to running water is like being by the water; listening to birds is like being in the forest. To sum it up in one word: immersive

    The sound quality depends on these four parameters:

    • Speaker size and power
    • Frequency response
    • SNR
    • Other sound quality parameter blessing

    So what do these four parameters mean, and how to judge whether it is good or bad?

    A Speaker size and power

    A speaker is a device that plays sound, so it goes without saying whether the speaker is good or bad:
    Speaker size: The larger the size of the same level, the better. The larger the size, the larger the sound quality and sound output area.
    When we look at the parameters, there will be two units: feet and mm (millimeters): 1 foot = 25.4 mm

    Power: The bigger the better at the same level. The power is what we generally call 3W, 5w, 10w, and this parameter directly determines the volume.
    The power is only meaningful depending on the (RMS) rated power, which is the power for continuous sound without distortion.
    If someone marks the peak power (PMPO), it is meaningless. The side shows that the power of the speaker is not good. Because of this, it instantly reaches an unsustainable power.

    B frequency response

    This parameter is too important and too complicated! ! I did my best to make it as simple as possible. I will give a detailed tutorial later.
    We all know that sound is divided into low frequency, intermediate frequency, and high frequency single frequency bands. This parameter looks at the performance of the sound in these three frequency bands. The unit is hz. The sound range that the human ear can hear is 20hz-20khz.
    Low frequency: 20-160hz
    IF: 160-2560hz
    High frequency: 2560-20khz

    If we see: 120hz-14Khz, how should we interpret it?
    That is, the sound in the low frequency range of 20-120hz of this speaker cannot be heard; the polished sound in the high frequency range of 14khz-20khz is also inaudible.

    If we see: 0hz-40khz how should we interpret it?
    In addition to 20-20khz, the part of 0-20hz / 20khz-40khz, although it is a part that cannot be heard by human ears, can actually be felt by the human body.
    The feeling of the body + the feeling of the ears creates a better overall feeling.
    Do you think that when listening to the subwoofer, the body trembles again, and the heart feels like it is about to pop out. That is, the body shakes again.

    We usually see two presentation forms of frequency response parameters:
    (This part of the majors is also more difficult to understand. If you want to read it, you can understand it as much as possible! If you don’t want to read it, you can just skip it)

    Just remember one sentence:
    If there is a pattern like: 30hz-20khz (+-3db), the smaller the number in the brackets, the better, and the smaller the better the sound quality. (Generally, numbers in brackets are not given, and they are given to explain that they are still very confident in their speakers)

    C Signal to Noise Ratio

    This is at least greater than 80db in the speaker field. And the bigger the number the better.
    Because the signal-to-noise ratio is the ratio of sound to noise, and the unit is DB. The larger the number, the less noise, and the less noise, the better the sound quality.

    D Other sound quality parameters/certification blessing

    This part refers to various professional certifications and other high-precision technology blessings such as:

    Hi-res audio certification is a high-quality audio product design standard proposed and defined by Sony and formulated by the Japanese and American Audio Associations.
    Golden Ear professional tuning, etc., is the tuning of speakers by world-renowned tuning teams.
    Both of these are actions that can make the speaker have better sound quality, indicating that the speaker has passed a more rigorous test.

    3 Look at the function

    A battery life:
    The longer the time at the same price, the better.

    B Dustproof and waterproof:
    Dustproof and waterproof are indicated by IPXX, the first X indicates the dustproof level, and the second X indicates the waterproof level. If so, IP6X or IPX7 means only level 6 dustproof and level 7 waterproof.
    The highest level of dust resistance is level 6.
    The highest level of water resistance is level 8.

    C can combine stereo
    Combining stereo means that two speakers can be combined and used together, and the left and right channels are set separately to form a stereo feeling.
    Purchase suggestion:
    Depending on the usage requirements, some of the same level are better.
    If you don’t need it, it doesn’t matter if you have it or not.

    D to see if there is a microphone
    The microphone is a device for collecting sound. The more microphones, the better the sound receiving ability. This is a necessary hardware on smart speakers, but not on Bluetooth speakers.
    Bluetooth speakers with microphones can usually talk when connected to a mobile phone.
    so:
    See if you have a microphone
    Look at the number of microphones

    E to see the Bluetooth version
    The higher the version: the higher the transmission efficiency, the lower the latency, and the lower the power consumption. That is to say, the less delay and stuttering.
    Bluetooth speakers need to be 4.0 or higher:
