Bluetooth speakers, for example, have single-handedly reinvented how we interact with our phones. Who would have imagined that you could play music without laboring over wires?

When looking for Bluetooth speakers for sale, you need to know how to make the best out of them. Even though they are tiny, they can sound different depending on where you place them. Here are tips you could try.

1. Position your speakers.

As a rule of thumb, if you want your speakers to sound better, place them facing toward you. Put them on a hard surface a little higher than where you are, about 24 inches tall or higher. To improve the bass of your speakers, keep their backs close to the wall or a hard surface.

2. Pick the shape of your speaker.

How your speaker is shaped will have an impact on the sound it produces. A box-shaped speaker works best when facing the audience, while a cylindrical one needs to be at the center of the room. Additionally, the cylinder always needs to be upright.

3. Use aptX.

Sometimes the speakers could sound worse because of the phone and speaker quality. Ideally, they both should support aptX. That way, you can stream high-quality audio. If your phone does not support aptX, you could connect through a 3.5mm port, although this beats the point of having Bluetooth speakers.

While these guidelines will work to improve the quality of sound you get, they cannot replace experimenting. The setup of your room might be as unique as your music preferences. In which case, the best thing to do is to experiment with positioning until you get a sound that works right for you.
