Buyer's Guide

When looking at wireless TV speakers there are a few things you should be aware of before you make a final decision. These factors will help you compare different models and ultimately determine which one is the best for you.

  • Connectivity: As mentioned before, there are three different types of wireless TV speakers, RF, Bluetooth, and WiFi. The type that is right for you will depend on what kind of TV you have and what capabilities you need/want. If you have an older TV, your options will be limited, as it likely doesn’t have Bluetooth capabilities. However you can get around this with a simple Bluetooth transmitter device. Also, for example if you have a curved TV, a curved wireless speaker might be the best option for you because the speaker will go better with your TV. However it all just depends on what you’re looking for.
  • Sound Quality: Obviously, when looking for a speaker sound quality is going to be important. Depending on what you’re going to be using your speaker for, you may or may not need higher-quality sound. If you want to get great audio for movies and really be able to feel the experience, you’ll want something that can give your nice, deep bass sounds and also great clarity. If you’re heard of hearing then you may want to look for a speaker that will enhance dialogue and conversations. Some terms to be familiar with are subwoofers and tweeters. Subwoofers are speakers that are used to produce low-frequency sounds (like deep basses) while tweeters are speakers used to produce high-frequency sounds (like a high-pitched bird chirp).
  • Design and Longevity: The look of your wireless speaker is going to be an important factor in your decision-making process. Whether or not you want to mount it on the wall or not may also help you choose which speaker is right for you. Most brands are opting for minimal, sleek designs that don’t take up too much space. This is a good thing, but make sure that you have an idea of how you want your set up to look before you make a purchase. Also, most wireless speakers are battery powered, which is great but it’s important to note how long of a battery life they have and how often the batteries will need to be recharged or changed.
  • Power: If you have a larger room, you want to make sure that your wireless speakers have enough power to fill that room with great quality sound. Some speakers are better for smaller spaces, while others are better for larger ones. Also, some speakers have surround sound capabilities while others don’t. If that’s a feature that you want, make sure to get a model that has that built in.
  • Pairing with Other Devices: Some speakers are designed to be able to pair with other speakers in order to give you a surround sound, home theater experience. Most brands will indicate whether or not their speakers are able to pair with other devices or not and which ones. This is a good option if you want to upgrade your audio experience but don’t want to purchase a whole set at one time.
  • Inputs and Outputs: The inputs and outputs that your speaker has will determine what other devices you can connect to it. Many speakers have USB and HDMI ports to allow you to connect other devices to it. Also, you may be able to connect other speakers or subwoofers to your system through the inputs and outputs. This gives you more options and ways to use your wireless speakers.
  • Price: There is a wire range of prices on wireless TV speakers, ranging from under $100 to over $1000. How much your willing to invest will be a factor in determining what quality of speaker you will get, but there are a lot of great options in every budget.

However, there are great premium options available for the true audiophile who wants an amazing multi-sensory experience.
