When you are travelling, chances are that you would like to share your music with family and friends, and headphones don’t really come in handy. Added to this, most household systems in use as speakers are way too bulky to be carried around during a travel. Therefore the ideal solution to this problem is through travel speakers for your mp3 player.
Travel speakers produce high quality music for their size, and are battery powered. The volume of sound is such that you can listen to music in a medium sized room comfortably. They are highly portable across devices, which means you can also use them to listen to personal music on your laptop, for example.
When shopping for speakers for your mp3 player you should make sure that the speakers you choose are compatible with your mp3 player device. This should not be such a problem if you buy them in a store – there is usually a shopping assistant knowledgeable enough to answer your questions; but if you plan to take advantage of the great deals that you can find onlilne, then you certainly need to do some research before clicking on that “buy” button.
The good thing is that you can also add additional woofer and sub woofer system to your travel speakers in order to further enhance the quality of the sound. However, you should remember that travel speakers are made such that they are able to run on low voltages supplied by batteries and also to last long enough, which means you cannot really get a very high bass from them. If you really are looking for bass, you will have to go in for a headphone but of course, only one person can listen in this case.
When you buy your mp3 speakers with travelling in mind, the two most important features are sound quality and size of speakers. Depending on the occasion and what kind of use you personally anticipate for your speakers, you should choose between which is more important for you, while keeping the price in mind. Also take care of the looks of the speakers, as speakers today come in a very wide variety of shapes and you should certainly look for a speaker that looks chic, slick and modern.
There are many trusted brands that have forayed into the area of travel speakers, including Sony, Alec Lansing, Macally, and other, and hence there is no dearth of quality or choice. The prices range from about 10 dollars for low end mini speakers, to about 200 dollars larger size speakers providing better quality listening experience.
