What are the best home speakers?

A good speaker in your living room is important: it can take watching a film, having a party, doing a workout or having a moment to yourself to the next level. But how do you choose the best home speakers? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

How many speakers do you need?

The easiest answer is: it depends on the room. This is a simple rule to determine how powerful your speaker needs to be to create room-filling sound.

It's often the case that more speakers mean more power, but that doesn't mean you have to fill your entire living room with them. There are 3 good solutions:

A simple solution:

A small multifunctional speaker that gives you the best sound in the living room and all other rooms. This does not have to be a big speaker, but it needs to be wireless: with Wifi or Bluetooth capability.

A speaker like the JBL Flip 5 gives room-filling sound in most living rooms and you can order it in a color that matches your interior! With JBL Partyboost, you can also pair two JBL speakers together for stereo sound.

A powerful solution:

Do you really want to feel the bass drop at your party? Do you want to hear the full spectrum of your music? Then look for a powerful speaker. Besides filling the room effortlessly, you'll be surprised by the quality of the sound.

The JBL Xtreme 3 and the JBL Boombox 2 are both super-powerful and bringing the bass to any song!

Both are also perfect for taking outdoors. Would you like your Boombox to provide the best vibes outdoors? Then take a look here for tips on selecting a speaker for outdoor use.

A complete solution:

Do you want multiple speakers and powerful music that can fill any room? Then a soundbar is the best option for you! A soundbar not only amplifies the sound of your TV, but you can also play your music through it. Check out JBL's soundbars here.

 A complete solution:

Do you want to control your speakers using voice or phone?

Technically, we need never get off the couch to control our speakers again. How you want to control your speakers is really a matter of preference. You can easily control your speakers with your phone via Bluetooth and Wifi.

Or you can buy a smart speaker. These work with voice control. JBL Link models work with Google Assistant, so all you have to do is say "Hey Google..." to begin!

Do you want to stream music via Bluetooth or Wifi?

Deciding between Bluetooth or Wifi streaming seems mostly a choice based on convenience, but it also affects the quality of your sound. Although a Wifi connection takes a little longer to set up, the sound quality is better. With Bluetooth, which is linked with the press of a button, the sound quality is lower than with Wifi.

Want to pair your speaker with your TV?

These days, a home cinema experience can be quickly set up, and soundbars are your best option. Soundbars bring surround sound and the deep bass of an exciting film to life. They effortlessly deliver room-filling sound. And, if you want, your soundbar will also play your music via a Bluetooth connection.

Did you know that the JBL Bar 5.1 has built-in Wifi and is compatible with Chromecasts and Airplay 2? It gives you everything in one device! Wondering which soundbar suits you best? Compare them easily here!
