Does anyone have experience with Bluetooth speakers?

 

This is for a computer, not TV system.

 

All the ones I've found are dinky little things. Dunno if they really count as a "speaker".

 

Anyone care to familiarizing me?

BT speakers are for phones not laptops. For a laptop get a set of regular stereo speakers.

From what I heard, there are some for computers, bluetooth or wireless, but they are of the very few.

So  non-portable speakers for a portable device. Sounds like a great idea.

Check out the UE Boom.  They may be small  but good ones have big sound.  I've seen a UE Boom fill an entire  room with sound. If one isn't enough, get two and link them together.

I don't know how much you are willing to spend, but this is pretty good. Read the reviews...

Yeah, I'm looking to keep it below $100 if possible. I'll look at UE Boom.

They sound like crap, especially at your price range, you can do 100% better at that price getting real speakers

You think they will fit in a laptop bag? ;)

 

 

Have you heard any quality BT speakers?

Speakers are portable even if the have a built in power supply.

 

And quality BT speakers come with quality price, and even then they're generally mono or impossible to place to get stereo properly on the laptop.
