5 Reasons to Buy Portable Speakers

Updated on November 2, 2010

 

The tiny portable speakers are unique little gadgets that solve at least five problems that many of us have on a daily basis. If you have a cell phone or music player that accepts a 3.5-mm jack which typically includes most any MP3 player, most iPods, the iPhone 3Gs listening to music without headphones is now easy and compact.

 

1.    Sharing music is difficult when no sound can be heard by anyone other than the one listening through a pair of headphones. You have discovered a fantastic new song from your favorite group and you want to play it for friends – but who wants to share their headphones with other people? Besides, the whole idea is to share the experience as much as the music.

2.    What if you depend on your Bluetooth headset paired to you iPhone to provide hands free calling? A great way to enjoy a lazy afternoon is to sit out on the back deck catching up on a little work on your laptop. Maybe you would rather leave your cell phone indoors and you can with the use of Bluetooth. One problem however, you only have two ears and one is already occupied. So how can you listen to your iPod, iPhone or MP3 player?

3.    Space is an issue for most of us. Our homes are busting at the seams already so why would you buy something else to add to the problem. The cost of travel is increasing exponentially when most airlines are charging for every bag you take with you. The bags we carry whether it is a purse, briefcase or tote continues to get larger. Laptops, digital cameras, cell phones, music players and accessories for all of them have the handles and your shoulders straining as it is.

4.    Portable electronics should be portable. Having the need for an electrical outlet to charge your gadgets is not exactly the picture of portability. Sometimes being able to use a simple battery is priceless.

5.    Price is always an important feature to consider before buying any gadget. The want versus need reality balancing act has to be factored into the outlay of cash.

 

Tiny portable speakers come in a variety of shapes. Most are inexpensive, very compact and give you good sound. Understand that with such a tiny speaker you may not be able to crank up your music full blast but you will be able to get good sound at a slightly lower volume.
