What are the Benefits of Bluetooth Speakers?

Today nearly everybody has a smartphone and that means that everybody carries their music with them wherever they go. Since you have the music, you also want to be able to listen to it wherever you are. While this often means bringing along a set of headphones, you don’t always need to keep the music to yourself, and often you’ll want to share it with more people, this is where a nice Bluetooth speaker comes in.

The benefits of Bluetooth speakers are numerous and varied. They connect wirelessly to your smartphone, tablet, or other device, so there’s no additional wires, or anything else, that you need to make them work. Most are also fairly portable, making them easy to take them to the park, the beach, or anyplace else that a group of people may want to listen to music together.

The fact that Bluetooth speakers can be taken nearly anywhere also means that they’re usually pretty sturdy, designed to be used in environment where other speakers could be easily damaged. Drop them in the sand, let them get covered in dust in the garage, it doesn’t matter, most Bluetooth speakers will keep going in nearly any environment. A Bluetooth speaker like the Klipsch Groove is even water resistant so that it can take a splash of water from a swimming pool or a spilled drink, and still keep going.

Using Bluetooth Speakers At Home

Of course, it can also be much simpler than all that. maybe you just need music in a room of your house that doesn’t have a stereo system. Maybe it’s a small room and there isn’t space for anything larger or maybe you’re not ready to spend as much. Bluetooth speakers can bring full range audio into any room in your home for not a lot of money, and without taking up much space.

A Bluetooth speaker is quite simply the most versatile speaker that you can own. Any time and any place that you need music you’ve got a simple and effective way to make it happen.

Five Useful Places to Have a Bluetooth Speaker

We know a lot of Klipsch fans and customers already have jaw-dropping home theaters and audio rooms that can bring tears to one’s eye. However, there aren’t many people who are willing or able to put those setups in every room or outside their homes.

With the launch of the Klipsch Groove portable Bluetooth speaker, the newest addition to our other portable speakers, we thought it would be fun to point a few of the most useful places to have a Bluetooth speaker.

It’s OK…you can leave your sacred home theater room for a little bit.

GARAGE

If you’re working on something in the garage, it’s probably something strenuous and maybe even a little bit frustrating. That’s where the Klipsch Groove comes in.

The Klipsch Groove is able to fill your garage (without distortion, of course) with your play list and can handle the workshop environment. This isn’t a toy.

BY THE POOL OR LAKE

Sure, we’re posting this blog in late October, but we’re already getting excited for swimsuit season next year. After all, there’s nothing better than hanging out by the pool, ocean or lake, sipping on a drink and listening to some relaxing music.

Oh and the Klipsch Groove has a splash-resistant IPX4 rating, meaning you don’t have to be worried about ruining it…unless you plan on chucking it into the water (bad idea).

KITCHEN

We have spoken to some of the best chefs in the world and they all talk about how important music and quality sound is to both their dining and preparation environments.

All chefs (professional or amateur) could utilize a Klipsch Groove speaker in their prep space. After all, headphones just get in the way and the practicality of being able to move the speaker around the kitchen is definitely useful.

COOK OUT

This is such a no-brainer. When you’re grilling up juicy burgers and brats (or fresh veggies, if that’s your thing), you definitely need to have some tunes in the background to entertain your guests while they wait.

With a 3” full range high excursion driver complemented by two side-firing passive bass radiators, the Klipsch Groove has the capabilities to deliver sound everywhere – even the outdoors.

ON THE ROAD

The Klipsch Groove’s diminutive size allows you to easily take it on the road. Throw it in a bag or backpack and be on your way.

Whether it’s for tailgating, a hotel room or even out at sea, the Klipsch Groove will keep the party rockin’ and rollin’ without you having to endlessly search for a power outlet thanks to the speaker’s eight hours of battery life.

Five Cool Things About the Klipsch Groove Portable Speaker

It’s no secret that most portable Bluetooth speakers these days are pretty “meh.” They sound terrible, feel terrible and usually have some unnecessary gimmick.

We’re here to change that with the new Klipsch Groove portable Bluetooth speaker. It is truly a “No Bullshit” portable speaker.

Here are five cool things about the new Klipsch Groove portable speaker that make it no ordinary, run-of-the-mill Bluetooth speaker.

Like every Klipsch speaker that has come before it, we have prioritized acoustics. With an insanely powerful 3” full range high excursion driver complemented by two side-firing passive bass radiators and advanced DSP equalization, the Klipsch Groove speaker provides lifelike, dynamic sound at any volume level.

Of course, you probably already knew that the Klipsch Groove would rock despite its diminutive size. You may expect less from the competition, but this is Klipsch. We give a crap about how our speakers sound.

2. BUILD QUALITY

Without question, the first thing you will realize when unpacking the Klipsch Groove from its packaging is that this is a substantial speaker. It isn’t toy like many competitors’ offerings that would be better off being sold next to an Etch-A-Sketch.

The Klipsch Groove is built to handle the rigors of the road whether you’re a rock star or simply someone who can’t live without top-shelf audio wherever you go.

3. SPLASH RESISTANT

We have taken real-world use cases into account when engineering the Klipsch Groove speaker. Its splash-resistant IPX4 rating means that you can bring it to the pool or lake without worrying that a little splash is going to short-circuit it.

4. EIGHT HOUR BATTERY LIFE

We have all had to play the “find an outlet” game with our various electronics at one point or another. It almost becomes a habit when you walk into a room – “Where’s the outlet?!?!”

With an 8-hour rechargeable lithium battery, the Klipsch Groove allows you to keep the party going all night long without feeling nervous about finding the nearest outlet. Sweet serenity.

Happy Halloween with the Klipsch KMC 1

Carving pumpkins is so overrated.

Former Klipsch customer service representative Andrew Davis decided to dress up his orange Klipsch Music Center KMC 1 portable Bluetooth speaker for Halloween by spray-painting multiple spooky decals. Andrew actually left the company just a couple days ago; however, he was still kind enough to share his special creation with us.

Andrew’s KMC 1 actually came with a prototype orange grille unlike the consumer-version, which comes with a black grille. This made it that that much easier to simply spray paint the designs rather than also having to spray paint the grille.  (See below for more photos.)

We’re sure that Andrew will have lots of fun frightening his neighbors with the big sound from this little speaker.

“Pissing off the neighbors?” More like “scaring the neighbors.”

Yup, that’s a horrible Halloween pun. In all seriousness, we hope everyone has fun this weekend. Rock on!
