“Where words fail, music speaks” Hans Christian Andersen And when the music is speaking, bluetooth speakers are increasingly the device of choice for our mobile music-loving society. The convenience of wireless is quickly overtaking tabletop docking devices as the preferred way to listen to music. The sales growth of smartphones and tablets fuels this interest, as does the increase in listening to music on those smartphones rather than using the standard MP3 player for on-the-go music playback.
In the office, on vacation, or just in the backyard, bluetooth speakers have become today’s answer to the battery-powered boombox of yesteryear. And at this time of year, as corporate buyers consider appropriate gift options for employees and high level customers, this gender-neutral, broad-audience gift should be at the top of the list.
When it comes to size, shape and colors, the options are nearly endless. Most are small and compact to fit into the active lifestyles of the people that want to take their music with them. Some styles are sleek and modern – others are colorful and fun. Microphones are included with some models for hands-free calling, and others include FM radio capability. And the price points vary as much as the styles – nearly every budget can accommodate one of these speaker options.
Of course, all styles worth considering offer the ability to add the corporate logo so your company’s brand is always in front of the customer when their favorite tunes are playing. When the music is speaking, be sure your company message is being heard!
