Speakers are one of the most popular audio devices, probably right after headphones. They come in all shapes and sizes and all of them have their own place in our cars, in our homes, offices, etc. Each of them has its own purpose and depending on that purpose, it has a specific build and size. You might think that the market offers anything you could possibly need but it wouldn’t be surprising if you couldn’t find the speaker you are looking for, especially if you’re looking for the speaker for your car. One of the simplest but the least applicable solutions for this problem is to take some basic material, some basic tools, a woofer or two, and build a speaker on your own. If you think about it, this may be great not only because the speaker box dimensions will fit perfectly your car, l
Wireless speakers are one of the best achievements of modern technology and they have become quite popular in recent years. We are constantly trying to make our lives easier by buying devices that are more practical and easy to handle. We use them all the time, at home, at work, even on vacation. One of the most popular representatives of this group of devices are wireless and Bluetooth devices. The most popular products are probably Bluetooth headphones and earbuds but we can’t really say that wireless and Bluetooth speakers are less popular than the headphones. There are many reasons for their popularity. They don’t have those annoying wires that can make a real mess in any room no matter how big it is, you can move them easily from one room to another or use them even in front of you
Every browser lists an infinite number of results whenever the keywords "speaker sound quality" are entered. Everyone wants the best product for as little money as possible and we are all trying to find the easiest way to reach that goal. Even though there are so many discussions about speaker sound quality on the Internet, there is one question that arises here – can you actually measure the sound quality of a certain speaker and how can you do that? Every audio device has its sound signature and that’s what makes it unique. Sound signatures can be described by the listeners and the description usually includes the analysis of the low, mid, and high tones. However, if you don’t feel confident doing it, you can always flip the speaker box and read the specifications on the backside of t
Ever since the first pair of headphones has been made, the discussions regarding their quality among their users have been arising. The huge growth of the audio industry and consumer market brought endless lists of different headphone models into our lives and caused discussions to grow into disputes between regular users, professionals, and audiophiles. Their disagreements do not refer only to the headphone overall quality (physical appearance, build quality, comfort level) or to the superiority of a specific model over other models but also to the possibility to objectively measure sound quality. No matter if you are just an ordinary user, a professional musician or simply an audiophile, you will definitely understand what we are talking about. The whole point of the previously men...
Today, everybody’s talking about wireless speakers – that’s the next big thing in the audio industry. You have probably heard your neighbor or your coworker bragging about his new wireless speaker system. You may have been a little bit jealous, even. Don’t be ashamed, we’ve had those moments, too. I mean, what’s not to like. The very idea of not having to stretch and hide all those wires sounds very tempting. We all want one of those wireless speaker systems. However, there are at least two things that could stop you from buying a new wireless speaker system. First, there’s the price. Wireless speaker systems, especially great-sounding and reliable systems, usually cost more than $1,000. For example, SONOS 5.1 system is priced around $1.700. It’s a significant amount of money and not
Whenever we buy a new product, we are trying to maintain it properly but, sadly, not for a long time. Most of us have the same problem - we get used to things we have after a longer period of time. By a longer period of time, we mean a few months at most. No matter how expensive this product is and how many times we promise ourselves that we will take care of it, somehow, we slowly start to forget about these promises and start treating the product as an old one. The same thing happens with every pair of earbuds or headphones we buy, no matter how expensive they are. After a few months, we start carrying them around without their protective bag or case, leaving them lying unprotected on a desk or bed, etc. This kind of treatment can destroy even the most durable headphones on the market...
Do you know somebody who doesn’t have at least one pair of headphones? Probably not, especially if that person uses a smartphone. Headphone use is widely spread all over the planet and at least once in our lives, we get to the point where we want to buy headphones so that we can listen to music when commuting, traveling, working out, etc. Headphones are used in many professions by musicians, radio presenters but they can also be used by ordinary people who work in crowded places and want to work in peace. Although we have numerous kinds of headphones on the market we still have problems finding the perfect pair for ourselves. The wider choice should make the process easier but this is true only in theory. In reality, we spend too much time searching for the new pair of headphones. This
If you have thought that sound quality of your speakers depends only on the quality of construction, you’ve been wrong. Every speaker can sound better or worse, depending on the room where it is held. There are many things you can do to improve your speaker performance and this article will explain them thoroughly. When it comes to speaker performance, it’s not all about buying them, bringing them home and turning them on (especially if you have a speaker system or a home theater system). No matter how much you pay for them, they may not work perfectly in your house unless you make some adjustments. There are so many things you can do and it takes some time and experimenting to achieve the best possible results. The most important things in those situations are the acoustic propert
