What is Bluetooth and why is it so popular?
When I say ‘Bluetooth’ a lot of you may know what it represents but not entirely know its full meaning. I’ll be honest with you; until recently I had no idea what it meant either. One thing that is for sure though is that the technology and power of bluetooth has spawned so many different products and items over the last 5 years or so. It’s quite hard to find a niche nowadays that hasn’t somewhat been affected by bluetooth technology. You’ll find it in your phone, in cars, in video games, entertainment systems, office equipment and so much more.
One thing that surprised me about it is it’s ability to change the way we listen to music too. Have you ever heard of a music speaker that is powered by bluetooth? For instance, this shower speaker is bluetooth. It is waterproof, which means you can listen to your iPod or cd player in the shower. You connect the speaker to the music player wirelessly and can therefore take it in the shower or bath with and listen to your favourite songs. This means you can literally be jamming to your favourite tune whichever room in the house you are in. How cool is that?
I was so amazed when I heard this that I had to try it out for myself. In fact I bought one of these so called shower speakers because I was sceptical over whether or not it would work. What was the outcome? It worked perfectly well. In my house, the bathroom is quite a distance away from my cd player which is in my living room. Because of this I guessed that the connection wouldn’t be incredible, and that the quality of the sound wouldn’t be great. I was wrong on both accounts, and the sound really was good. As good as it could be in fact. So, all in all, this is just another reason why bluetooth technology is the way to go and is on the up.
