As the world of electronics continue to evolve things get much better for the consumer. It used to require a cord that attached into your device, which had to be within a few feet of you to listen to music.

There was the issue of the cords getting tangled in whatever you were doing and they were generally just a pain in the butt for most people but an annoyance that we dealt with because there were no options.

Today the Bluetooth Stereo Headset is on the scene and the audiophile has a new way to enjoy music without the need to be physically wired into the device.

Bluetooth in general and the Bluetooth Stereo Headset in particular allow the individual to get pristine and crisp signal from the device tin to a little headset that is unobtrusively set into the ear of the listener.

The device has a decent range so you are no longer required to be at arms length from the device that is being used. In fact not only can you be a ways away from it, but several people can now use the same transmission and listed to it with their own head sets.

The Bluetooth Stereo Headset is great to have when traveling with the kids in the car because they can all listen to the same movie at the volume level that they each prefer without bothering mom and day as they drive.

This means that the trip can be much more enjoyable for the parents and the children alike so everyone is more likely to arrive fresh and in a better frame of mind.

The Bluetooth Stereo Headset can be used on most any device that has a regular stereo headset jack from walkman type devices to the car stereo to the portable DVD player and even most cellular phones and PDA units on the market today.

The Bluetooth Stereo Headset is a fairly inexpensive add on device which can be picked up at any place from the mega electronics specialty stores to the super big box retailers and is basically a plug and play type unit that requires no extremely special or tedious work to be made functional.

A decent Bluetooth Stereo Headset is a great addition to anyone persons personal audio toolbox and one that, if you use headphones at all, you will not regret at any point after the initial purchase.

It will give you a lot of enjoyable audio for a reasonable price and I wager that any time you put it on and tune the music in and the world out you will thank the inventor for the great addition and the fantastic sound and lack of cords to get in the way of your activity.

Introducing the USB Speaker

Most desktop computers are equipped motherboards that have their own sound chips so you can plug in a pair of speakers.

However, in order for these speakers to work, an additional electric socket is required to give it power.

This shouldn’t be a problem for desktop computers that remain stationary and an extension cord or power strip should be enough for the speaker to be plugged in alongside the other computer components.

Laptops can enjoy a similar setup, but when there is a need to take the laptop elsewhere, taking the speakers with you would mean disconnecting the power and jack and that means more wires to sort.

Laptops have speakers of their own, but you will always get higher volumes and sometimes better quality sound depending on the speaker brand. The USB speaker is the solution for portable audio power for these reasons.

Self-powered Convenience

The two speakers are connected with each other and then one of them has another wire with a familiar USB connector at the end. There is nothing else present as plugging in the USB into the port is enough to power both of the speakers and serves as the audio transmitter so sounds can come out when played.

Most of the laptops and desktops should have more than 3 USB ports so there should be some space to connect a USB speaker in. Because most of these USB speakers are small in size, they are easier to pack in a laptop bag or simply easier to carry around and the overall setup produces less clutter.

Finally, USB speakers are very easy install as they are plug and play like other USB peripherals so no drivers are required.

Better Audio Quality

Some brands like Logitech offer better sounding USB speakers than even some of the ordinary speakers. Even if Logitech isn’t the brand, USB speakers will sound better than laptop speakers in most cases and much louder since these speakers have their own volume control allowing the pair to amplify the sound to make music and sound effects sound livelier.

Lots of Models Available

So many models are available in the market right now because these companies want to make sure that customers travel with ease along with their wireless mice and keyboards. The competition is also causing the prices of these speakers to be lower including some of the ones of decent quality.

Some of the models available are so minimalistic including the stereo speakers that are connected as a single USB speaker so only one wire is needed. Others come in small circular shapes to make them easier to carry.

If none of the speakers are sold in local stores, a good place to look for cheap USB speakers is at Amazon. There you will find several pairs of USB speakers that cost just above $10 or better sounding speakers above $40. These speakers are best paired with laptops although they should work fine with desktop computers as well.
