Common wireless speaker connection methods include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. These connection technologies come standard on many modern wireless speakers, and each offers its own advantages.
Bluetooth is one of the most common wireless connection methods, typically functioning at a range of up to 33 feet. While early Bluetooth wireless connections suffered from low sound quality, many current devices offer audio that is indistinguishable from traditional CDs.
Wi-Fi offers higher sound quality and a longer connectivity range than Bluetooth, but it can also be more difficult to set up. Additionally, the need for a wireless network ties users to areas with Internet connections, rendering Wi-Fi speakers useless anywhere else. However, for home users, Wi-Fi connectivity is often the most functional choice.
