Just a few years ago, the idea of enjoying music outdoors without an electrical outlet seemed impossible. Now, with Bluetooth speakers, you can enjoy your favourite tunes in even the most remote locations.

Choosing a Bluetooth Speaker: New or Refurbished?

Buying brand-new isn't the only option. Deal Buyer wants to highlight the benefit of choosing refurbished electronics, which are not only cost-effective but also environmentally friendly.

If you're in the market for a Bluetooth speaker that offers great value, consider a refurbished model. But how do you choose the right one?

1. Battery Life

A good wireless speaker won't require constant recharging. For instance, a standard model like the Bose Portable Smart Speaker offers up to 12 hours of playback. Battery life can vary based on the speaker’s volume and age, and your charging habits.

2. Sound Quality

While smartphones and tablets are convenient, their sound quality often leaves much to be desired. A quality Bluetooth speaker can provide the clarity, bass, and volume needed for both indoor and outdoor use. When choosing a speaker, consider the following:

  • Output Power (Watts): Approximately 20 Watts can produce about 80 dB, suitable for outdoor settings. To avoid distortion, the volume should ideally not exceed 80% of the speaker's capacity.

  • Frequency Range: A wider frequency range means better sound quality. The human ear can hear from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz, though not all speakers can cover this entire spectrum.

  • Harmonic Distortion: Aim for speakers with less than one per cent harmonic distortion to ensure clearer sound.

3. Portability

Most wireless speakers are compact and come with rechargeable batteries, making them easy to transport. Deal Buyer offers a range of shapes and sizes to suit various needs.

4. Bluetooth Version

Choose a speaker that supports at least Bluetooth 4.0, as it offers energy savings which extend battery life. 

5. Connectivity Options

Consider what devices you will connect to your speaker. NFC-enabled speakers simplify pairing by automatically connecting when near each other. For devices without wireless capabilities, ensure the speaker has a standard 3.5 mm audio input.

Is Refurbished as Good?

Refurbished electronics can match the quality of new ones, thanks to the thorough testing and certification processes by Deal Buyer's team. They diagnose, repair, or replace parts as needed, ensuring that each item meets high standards before resale.

Cost Savings and Eco-Friendly Choices

Refurbished speakers are typically 30 to 70 percent cheaper than their new counterparts. By choosing refurbished, you're not only saving money but also helping to reduce electronic waste.
