Bluetooth speakers are convenient for many reasons, but one of the best thing you can benefit from is their ability to pair up. Now, why should you this? Is the process hard? What can you expect? We’re here to answer these questions and talk a bit about the process of pairing multiple Bluetooth speakers.
The benefits of pairing multiple Bluetooth speakers
Generally, the list of benefits of pairing multiple Bluetooth speakers is quite large, which is why we’re only going to mention some of them. The top 4 benefits of pairing multiple Bluetooth speakers are as following:
- Easy to set up – People who live in temporary homes or move around quite often will find it easier to pair up a couple Bluetooth speakers when compared to installing a full sound system.
- Space savers – Basically, Bluetooth speakers are quite small, so you’ll save up quite a lot of room by avoiding receivers, huge speakers, and various stereo gear.
- They can remain where you put them indefinitely – Now, Bluetooth speakers are usually small, which means that they can remain in the same place where you left them for quite a long time. That’s not the reason with “wired” speakers which are often huge.
- Better sound – Several Bluetooth speakers will simulate the “surround sound system”.
Pairing Bluetooth speaker units – pairable brands
Before you get to the pairing process, you should know that not all Bluetooth speakers have the ability to pair up. Generally, some brands are extremely proficient in this field of expertise, having more than one series of pairable Bluetooth speakers, such as UE, for instance. If you like this particular brand, you should check out the UE BOOM 2.
UE Boom 2 Phantom Wireless Mobile Bluetooth Speaker
Basically, the Boom 2 Phantom is one of UE’s finest Bluetooth speakers. It comes in 7 color variations, and it looks quite good. As for the performance, it features 15 hours of battery life, up to 100 feet of Bluetooth effective range, frequency range of 90 Hz to 20 kHz, and two 45 mm drivers.
Apart from that, this magnificent speaker is both shockproof and waterproof, making it one of the most durable wireless speakers ever. One of the best thing about UE Boom 2 Phantom is that it has the ability of pairing up with up to eight Bluetooth source devices.
Moneywise, JBL is a better option than UE. Of course, Ultimate Ears offer better wireless Bluetooth speakers, but they’re often characterized as expensive. Anyhow, people on the budget should consider JBL wireless speakers. One of the JBL’s best speakers is the “Flip 4”.
JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth speaker
JBL’s Flip 4 is capable of connecting with up to 2 (Non-JBL) tablets or Bluetooth source speakers. Apart from that it features a built-in rechargeable Li-Ion 3000mAh battery that will last for up to twelve hours of fun. This Bluetooth speaker was labeled IPX7 waterproof, making it completely resistant to water, even if submerged.
Now, here’s the best part. The JBL Connect+ options allows you to connect to over a hundred JBL connect+ speakers, which is absolutely ideal for parties. One of the best thing about this magnificent Bluetooth speaker is that it offers high-quality sound for a budget price.
How to connect your Bluetooth speakers
Now, the first thing you need to worry about is the consistency of your speakers. Namely, they have to be from the same series, and, in the worst case, they have to be from the same brand. Of course, there are several models that could pair up with different units, but they’re pretty rare and often expensive.
As for the process itself, it’s, actually, quite simple. There are only two easy steps you have to follow and you’ll be fine.
First of all, turn your speakers on. By this we mean that you should turn all the speakers you want to pair up, not all the speakers in your surroundings. Now, once this is done, you should search for the “pairing” button or function. This is where things could get tricky, depending on the model you’re using.
Some models have plain functions, and you won’t have any trouble finding the “Pair” button. The situation will be even easier if you had several Bluetooth speakers from the same brand. Some models, however, require a special application to be installed (via DVD provided or smart phone).
Honorable Mention – “AmpMe” App
A good example of a pairing application is the “AmpMe”, available for iOS and Android system smart phones. Basically, this application allows you to sync the audio playback through smart phones, resembling what we call “Bluetooth Pairing”. Anyhow, this is not the same thing, so you could always try it if you’re out of ideas.
