With today’s technology moving steadily uphill, most people are reliant on a wireless device for their music needs. It is only fitting that a wireless multi room audio system will accompany the devices streaming the music. Once a commodity for only a handful of people, wireless speakers are now a part of the masses’ music ecosystem and can enhance your living space. But how does one go about selecting a wireless device? In a market with a plethora of devices claiming to offer so much, deciding on one can seem overwhelming. Wonder no more. Read on for tips on how to find the right speakers for you based on functionality and how to install and connect them.

What is Wireless?

First, let’s talk wireless. While not all of the speakers are plugged into the wall, one or more of the speakers need to be plugged into an electrical outlet. But how do they work exactly? Most devices come equipped with Bluetooth capabilities. WiFi is another option and it offers access to a host of content from devices and generally speaking, it is a lot faster. Now that we’ve got the basics down, let’s figure out what speakers work best for you.

Selecting Your Speakers

Let’s discuss size and weight (a convenience factor). If you’re looking for something light and portable (meaning you will be toting it around more often than not), it is probably best to opt for light-weight wireless speakers. The Dell Bluetooth Portable Speaker AD211, weighs an impressive 10.6 oz., its chrome finish features a rechargeable battery that provides ten hours of continuous music and it can connect wirelessly via Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. While good things do come in small packages, remember that the sound quality may not be as intense as a larger speaker.

If the aesthetics is more of a concern, there are plenty of shapes and sizes along with very impressive finishes to light up any room. The Bose SoundTouch 20 has the look of a traditional rectangular boxed speaker with a modern twist. The polished silver speaker has a curved front panel and features a small front LCD screen. If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, you can opt for Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air that is shaped like a small football.

If music quality is a major factor in your decision-making process, there are some stellar and top of the line wireless home speakers to choose from. Sound & Vision magazine recommends HEOS by Denon for its “extensive set of inputs and superb sound.” The Samsung Shape M5 Wireless Audio Speaker has received praise for its innovative triangle shape, sound performance and its ability to synchronize sound to Samsung televisions and home theater systems.

Installing and Connecting

Installing a wireless speaker sounds complicated but as noted earlier, it is actually a very simple process. Installing in-wall, in-ceiling or on-wall speakers using in-wall wire requires using a drill, a utility knife and wire strippers among other tools. We prefer installing on-wall speakers as it is easiest to position by simply mounting.

Like most wireless home speakers, the application is the central command hub for sound. This is where all of the controls and commands are located. Connecting to the WiFi connection allows you to choose a live stream or playlist, select the audio that plays in each room and control volume all from your smartphone or tablet.

So there you have it. Some of the most important things to consider when shopping for a wireless surround sound to maximize your sound and music experience.
