Pros:

  • Works with both Windows and macOS – no drivers or software needed
  • Great sound reproduction
  • Can connect multiple audio devices – some early adapters couldn’t do this
  • Makes your office at home – or your home office – essentially wireless

Cons:

  • Sometimes has trouble picking up signals (especially when your Bluetooth device is close to the adapter)
  • No direct volume slide control – you’ll need to use your computer or your Bluetooth device’s volume controls instead
  • Most Bluetooth devices won’t connect to it immediately – you might need to try several times until it connects successfully

The Logitech Wireless Speaker Adapter is a highly effective way to connect your Bluetooth device into your home or business’s sound system.

It’s able to connect to a computer by plugging it into the USB port. Or you can connect it to the auxiliary port on a stereo amplifier or home theater.

After that, it’ll begin broadcasting your Bluetooth device’s music and audio in your office, home, or anywhere you want to hear it.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the most powerful wireless speaker?

The Ultimate Ears UE Boom is not the loudest wireless speaker I’ve tested but it delivers the best sound. Highs are bright and crisp, mids sound natural, and lows are pleasantly thumping. Also, the bass is fairly loud given the speaker’s size. The Ultimate Ears UE Boom performed well on the listening-window test, bouncing audio off a wall at the long end of its audio range and sounding fine even at maximum volume on that side of the room.

How can I make my wireless speakers louder?

A good, loud, clean sound is what you’re after. There are a couple of ways to up the volume of your home audio. A downward-firing subwoofer, like the one found in the Micca MB42, can act as an additional base to your sound. If you have the space, the addition of an actual subwoofer will not only add depth to your sound but also the potential to put out a lot more volume.

Another way to increase the volume of your wireless speakers is to use a Bluetooth amplifier, so you can avoid the loss of sound quality that occurs when you transmit sound over a wireless connection.

Which WIFI speaker should I buy?

There are many options when it comes to WiFi speakers, and the best one for you depends heavily on your exact needs. We’ll be going in-depth in this article, and this it’s worth taking a moment to explain what WiFi speakers are and why you might want one.

Can you convert normal speakers to wireless?

Sure! All you need to do is plug your speakers into an adapter/transmitter. This is the same type of technology you use to play your TV or stereo wirelessly through your speaker system. While transmitting via old school radio waves, Bluetooth has the advantage of being completely digital, with no static or interference. The downside is that you’re limited to the same room as your transmitter.
