In recent years, Bluetooth connectivity has become more and more prevalent in our everyday lives and how we listen to audio (through speakers and headphones). You may have wondered how exactly your Bluetooth speaker works, and by reading this article, you will find out.
How do Bluetooth speakers work? Bluetooth speakers receive digital audio wirelessly via the Bluetooth protocol when paired with Bluetooth-enabled digital audio devices. BT speakers accept digital audio via BT wireless transmission; convert it analog audio; amplify it, and convert it into sound just as regular speakers would.
When it comes down to design, Bluetooth speakers are really no different than most other active speakers (with built-in amplifiers). The big difference is the wireless transfer of audio via Bluetooth rather than the typical wired connection (or other wireless methods). The main purpose of a loudspeaker is to act as a transducer that converts electrical energy (audio signals) into mechanical wave energy (sound waves). This is true regardless of if the speaker is wired or wireless.
The transducer element of a speaker is called the driver. Speakers may have many other components (enclosures, crossovers, amplifiers, etc.), but the driver(s) are the key transducer components that turn audio signals into sound waves.
Every loudspeaker works upon this function: an analog audio signal (alternating current) passes through the driver and causes proportional movement in the drivers diaphragm.
The diaphragm movement pushes and pulls the air around it and effectively produces Sound System waves that mimic the form of the AC voltage of the audio signal.
This critical action in speaker design is required regardless of the speaker type, the number of drivers, crossover network, enclosure and form factor, how it receives its signal (wired or wireless), or any other specifications that differentiate one loudspeaker from another.
Whether you’re a hardcore PC gamer or a console baby, eventually the people you live with will probably get annoyed at the various bleeps, bloops, and gunshots of your video games. Maybe you have already got a great pair of headphones and a webcam with a mic to cover your multiplayer needs, but sometimes it is nice to have it all in one place. That is where the gaming headset comes in.
These headsets offer an easy, all-in-one solution to your game audio needs, usually packing in a microphone, decent sound, and lengthy cords to suit just about any gaming setup. As with any kind of tech, there are quite a few gaming headsets on the market, and many are not great.
How over-the-ear headphones fit on your head is one of the most important things to consider, especially for gaming headsets. If you are going to play for long periods of time, a bad fit can be physically painful—meaning you can not really give all your focus to fragging.
It might seem fine at first, but trapped heat, sweat, and friction can build up over time. After an hour or so, even minor discomfort can feel pretty awful. A little extra weight in the wrong spot can give you neck pains. Slight pressure in the band can turn into sore ears or full-on headaches.
In order to obtain better sound performance and prolong battery life, many Bluetooth speakers use two batteries in series. In order to be compatible with 5V USB input, a boost charger is required to charge the 2-cell battery. Our charger IC has programmable input current limits and input voltage limits, making it compatible with various power inputs and a full range of USB-c currents up to 3a. In addition, it also has a power mode (Buck) regulator, which can provide up to 5A current for charging externally connected smartphones. This feature is very convenient for speakers with power pack mode using USB-c ports.
True Wireless ( or TWS) headphones are the latest in amazing audio technology. From Apple Airpods to the TaoTronics SoundLiberty series, True Wireless earbuds have moved to the forefront of audio technology. When you wear them, you have the complete freedom to move: there are no wires to connect your earbuds to your phone, or even to each other.
All this sounds amazing. True Wireless earbuds are even the current best-selling headphones. But what does True Wireless/TWS actually mean?
This blog is a deep dive into TWS technology, and the TWS meaning in earbuds. It covers everything you need to know, including the advantages and disadvantages of owning a pair and where you can find these earbuds at an affordable price.
