Before you get bitten by the shopping bug and buy the first Bluetooth speaker that catches your eye, it’s important to understand which type of speaker suits your needs. 

Bluetooth speakers typically come in a compact, small form as a convenient way to listen to your favourite tunes wherever you go. Meanwhile, larger speakers and stereos produce loud, room-filling sounds that will work wonders for social gatherings or for a home theatre system.

Now if you mix the function of Bluetooth for a home speaker, you get a neat home with great sound system!

What is the difference between Wi-Fi speakers and Bluetooth speakers?

What is the difference between Wi-Fi speakers and Bluetooth speakers?

The main difference between Wi-Fi speakers and Bluetooth speakers lies in the way they work. Wi-Fi speakers connect to a Wi-Fi network, which then allows the speakers to connect to an audio source. 

On the other hand, Bluetooth speakers connect directly to an audio source, making them easier to set up. As Wi-Fi speakers can handle more bandwidth than their Bluetooth counterparts, they are able to support higher-fidelity audio. The downside to Wi-Fi speakers is that they require a Wi-Fi network to connect to, so they are often not as portable as Bluetooth speakers.
