Are you tired of the disappointing function of your phone with its disappointingly hands-free feature? Maybe it's time to upgrade your lousy handsfree calls with a high quality Bluetooth speaker.
You can assume that any Bluetooth speaker can be used as a wireless speakerphone. After all, the main purpose of a phone is to make phone calls, and the main purpose of a Bluetooth speaker is to tone up your phone. But for the most part, the vast majority of Bluetooth speakers do not have built-in microphones. And without microphones, they can not be used as wireless hands-free devices.
The overwhelming omission of microphones in Bluetooth speakers is an amazing fact that we all have to deal with. Fortunately, we can divert our attention from this existential danger, because there are a handful of high-quality Bluetooth speakers that can actually be used as a hands-free device.
Of course, all these Bluetooth speakers have their own functions and characteristics. Some are good for days on the beach, while others are best kept in the living room. That's why we took the time to find a selection of the best hands-free Bluetooth speaker for all needs.
Anchor SoundCore 2 ($ 40)
If you are looking for an affordable, loud, and proven Bluetooth hands-free speaker, you should try the SoundCore 2 anchor , It has a high-quality built-in microphone, a speaker and connectivity range up to 66 feet.
Anker's SoundCore 2 is one of our favorite Bluetooth speakers, and with good reason. It's a small, noisy, high quality device at an affordable price. It also has a 24-hour battery life, an AUX port and IPX5 water resistance (it can cope with splashes, rain and maybe a short dip).
Anchor SoundCore Mini ($ 25)
If you're looking for an ultra-portable hands-free Bluetooth speaker, consider the SoundCore Mini anchor , It's a tiny, low-cost Bluetooth speaker, but it can get pretty loud. It also has a built-in microphone and a range of up to 60 meters.
The SoundCore Mini is a small, decent device with many additional features. It has a Micro SD (for music files) connection, a built-in FM radio and an AUX port. It has a 15-hour battery life and IPX5 water-resistance, so it can handle a bit of rain or a dip in the pool.
DOSS Touch ($ 28)
The DOSS Touch is an elegant Bluetooth speaker. It has a touch screen, two speakers for high-quality stereo sound and a built-in microphone for the hands-free function. It also has a decent 12-hour battery life, a micro-SD card slot (for music files) and a range of up to 66 meters.
While the idea of a Bluetooth speaker with a touch screen seems a bit strange, the DOSS is a touchscreen that feels pretty natural and intuitive within a few minutes. If anything, the touch screen adds a "premium" element to the DOSS Touch. If you look at it, you would not guess that it is a spokesman for $ 28.
However, this is not the kind of speaker you want to take to a pool party. Although the DOSS Touch has an IPX4 water resistance rating (it can handle a bit of rain), the "premium" touchscreen costs a lot of money.
NYNE Bass ($ 55)
If you're looking for a larger, hands-free Bluetooth speaker, try the NYNE Bass. This high-quality Bluetooth speaker has a built-in active subwoofer so you can listen to music or watch movies without compromising on quality. In addition, it offers a battery life of 10 hours, an AUX port and a hidden handle on the go.
The NYNE Bass is a premium speaker with a rugged design. It's a great speaker (or speakerphone) at home, in the car, or at a party. That means it's not water repellent, so keep it away from the beach.
Echo Dot or Google Home Mini ($ 50)
The Echo Dot and the Google Home Mini are smart devices and not Bluetooth speakers. However, they can be used like Bluetooth speakers and make hands-free operation child's play. In addition, you can use the Echo Dot or the Home Mini to extend a Bluetooth speaker without a microphone to the speakerphone.
Smart Assistants can be a great alternative to Bluetooth speakers. They are small and affordable, they can be used for all home audio (for music or phone calls) and can be controlled using voice commands. You can even use voice commands to make calls through your hands-free kit through your smart assistant.
Of course, there are some disadvantages of the Echo Dot and the Google Home Mini. For one, they are not portable. They must be plugged in constantly and require a Wi-Fi signal to perform basic tasks. If you just want to listen to music and make hands-free calls, the extra features of a smart assistant can be annoying.
