How to choose?
It is important to familiarize yourself with the nuances that you need to consider when familiarizing yourself with information about different models. The quality of acoustics and ease of use directly depend on this.
- The future goal of exploitation. This is a fundamental factor on which all the minor ones depend. The devices in question are great for parties, listening to tracks on a walk or on hikes. In addition, portable music devices are often taken with them to the beach, to the pool. It is easy to guess that for operation at home, dimensional and powerful speakers are suitable, and for movement it is better to choose compact devices with a sealed and moisture-resistant casing.
- Design. Some people when choosing a column are based on design to decorate their interior. In this matter, the determining factor is the taste of the buyer.
- Cost. One of the most obvious points affecting a purchase. The higher the price tag, the higher the chances of getting a high-quality product for long-term use. It is easy to assume that the qualitative characteristics of the model for $ 200 significantly exceed the $ 50 counterpart. But it’s not worth going to extremes. If the speaker is needed as a musical accompaniment during sports, you do not need to overpay for a device with impeccable sound. A device with medium speakers has a real opportunity to please a sports enthusiast with music.
- The speakers . If you are interested in a portable device with good sound, the number of speakers should be considered first. The device with two modules produces excellent stereo sound, power and surround sound. And also it is advisable to purchase a multi-channel device, because only in this way the output will get clear sound.
- Range of supported frequencies. Ideally, the lowest minimum and highest maximum value.
- Power. On the sound quality, this parameter is weakly reflected, but still it is responsible for how loudly the portable device can sound.
- Autonomy . It is defined as follows: the more capacious the battery, the better. Of course, you should not expect space performance from compact devices. For example, Xiaomi 2.0 Mi Bluetooth Speaker with a claimed capacity of 1,500 mAh sounds without recharging for longer than 8 hours. Larger columns can show impressive values.
- Ports and slots. An important point for those who like to enjoy music without disturbing others. In advanced models, the presence of USB ports is thought out. An ideal complement is the support of memory cards. It is logical that with a large number of ports the cost of the device increases.
- Management . It is expressed by the number of buttons, their functionality, ease of location and pressing.
It is worth mentioning that , ideally, you should definitely test the column before paying. For some models, the manufacturer claims good power, and at maximum the speakers greatly distort the sound. This makes listening an unbearable process. In addition, it’s nice to ask in advance how convenient the speaker control is. In some cases, it is unrealistic to independently verify these parameters.
Video reviews of users who tell about their impressions of the operation of Xiaomi speakers can also help determine.
