You need a small dongle that adds Bluetooth capability to your computer. I recommend something small like the AZiO Micro Bluetooth Adapter. This device is under $15 on Newegg. This device plugs into a USB port and enables Bluetooth communications with various devices via Bluetooth (speakers, printers, keyboards/mice, phones, and more). After installation ...

While its a little below the pricerange, and the bass isn't spectacular I'd suggest taking a look at logitech's z150. They're fairly cheap, compact speakers. They arn't super bassy (I consider them to be barely passing the Indica test (I listen to how the start of the indica track Valokeilojen Vampyyri - where a VW van starts up) for bass, though they're ...

I usually tend to review hardware I have in these answers. I'll make an exception, and review hardware I'm looking at seriously, and a bit of quick audio teachery. If I had these requirements, I'd look at the AV40 (which alas, I could not get my paws on) or the AV42 (Which is on my wishlist), both by M-Audio. The AV40 has a reputation. Wirecutter ...

I use a Jabra Speak 510, very good sound quality, can do much more than just speaker but a little expensive (about 100€) Edit for details : battery YES, autonomy more thant 10 hours, USB and jack 3.5mm port Size : round, diameter about 10cm for 2.5cm height Link : http://www.jabra.co.uk/business/speakerphones/jabra-speak-series/jabra-speak-510

I recommend the Juice Bar portable speakers. I've had one of these for about half a year, and I've been very happy with the quality of both the build and the audio - and that's coming from a professional sound engineer! They've also got great range - I managed 20m indoors, through brick walls, and around 35-40m outdoors. They're available in a range of ...

I bought an AeroSkull HD from Jarre Technologies that already had this feature and I remember that they called it TrueWireless Stereo. It's a proprietary technology developed by CSR, the company that makes most of the Bluetooth chips and who have previously acquired aptX. Unfortunately this particular feature is not advertised through ingredient branding, ...

The original Hi-Fi Wi-Fi speaker company, Sonos, seems to be your fit. They have three product lines that are fully inter-operable with each other; in order of increasing quality (and obviously price): the Play 1, 3 and 5 at $200, $300 and $500 respectively. Despite the $50 budget breach per speaker, I include the Play 5 because you'll need at least one (...

The cable for dual RCA jack audio output and also for 3.5mm ring-sleeve-tip auto jack output is included with the device, as is the power supply, so it's complete. For one Euro less, I would go for the https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07W4JHGKS/ which includes the 3.5mm cable and delivers 50W RMS, but the reviews on the product you chose show it's acceptable. ...

The Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM is a really good option. Now on Amazon UK for £127.99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00PDUE8TG Charges via typical Micro USB. Has a 3.5mm aux input But in general, it is a solid good speaker with awesome battery life and great sound. As for your USB charging question: if it uses the same connection it will usually charge with any ...

8 ohms is nothing, you don't need an amplifier for that. The power supplied with a mobile phone is enough to drive your headphones. You'll blow out your eardrums with an amp. (250 ohm headphones and I'd recommend an amp, but you could still get away without using one at that level) If you still insist on getting an amplifier for your headphones, you can get ...

While the solution I would go with would be headphones, and a good dac, there's actually better speakers that do USB and other options. Looking at reviews (the wirecutter does excellent ones with a panel of experts, the audio engine A2+ sounds like a good option to consider, no pun intended. Its tiny but comes with a good range of inputs (including a built ...

I suggest looking at ratings for some of the better bluetooth portable speakers that are available for people these days. One that particularly stood out to me was the Marshall Kilburn, which attracts me for its bass/treble knobs, (apparently) excellent sound quality (I'm by no means an audiophile and I haven't heard this one in person, but if I had $250 to ...

I don't have any experience with the two models you mentioned. But, I'd recommend the Logitech z313 2.1 system. It goes for about $50. Logitech's website has some fairly detailed specs. It does use 3.5mm so you will need an adapter. I've had mine for about 2 years and it works very well. Something to consider I guess. You could also take a look at Logitech'...

Standalone pitch adjuster devices like the TC_Helicon which can adjust pitch to the accuracy you specify are studio devices, designed to fit into a 19" rack mount frame. You'd need to interface them between the audio source and your amplifier, if your amplifier supports that. They will all be more expensive than used PC running tone adjustment apps.

There are not too many that fit the description. Here is one: C18 is an high-performance MP3 player with 1.8 inches Screen which can show the relevant information. Built-in 8GB memory capacity ensures you to download your favorite songs freely. And, it supports many audio formats such as, MP3, WMA, AAC, APE, FLAC, WAV, etc and supports TF Card (Up to 128G)...

The name of the cable required for the boomerspeaker is a Figure-8 cable. However, in the future, when posting such a question, it would help if you could include the image of what it is that you need. It took a bit of searching to find a picture with the image of the power nest. Finally found it on NewEgg. .

The way I've solved this problem in the past is with the PC's line-in jack. While it requires the PC to have power to output sound, it allows you to chain the output. You may need to go into the sound device manager for your PC's operating system and toggle the Line-In jack to get this to work, but you should only have to do that once. Some computers ...

Like so many answers this answer comes with limitations that may not suit you. Limitations: Requires some minimal electronic skill Reading and assembly required The Onion Omega2+ $13 (or Omega2 $10) with a PowerDock $6 and $3 USB audio adapter all under $30. Download the Omega2 Project book Vol1 and find Chapter 5 (Audio projects) Hope you are ...

You can got a cheep android for £55. This can be configured to have a singe button to call you. Use multi users, so admin user configures the phone, and other user can not re-configure. Non-smart are cheaper, some of these will allow you to set a list of numbers that can be called. Alternatively if you are in a close geographical area, then consider CB. ...

You've got a couple of problems with your spec and will need to work around them to proceed. First, a USB connected speaker would need its own audio adapter onboard, or drivers that interface with the audio adapter on the host machine and a board in the speaker to convert the digital signal to an analog form internally. Outside of headphones, there's not ...

I don't know any white sound machine that also does alarm clock. You didn't specify any price range so I assume we'll go for a middle range. In this case, I'd recommend the Marpac Dohm-DS (https://www.amazon.com/Marpac-Dohm-DS-All-Natural-Machine-Actual/dp/B000KUHFGM) which is around 50€ and has the advantage to create its own sound with an internal fan ...

If I am understanding your question correctly, check out Chromecast Audio. It might solve your problems. As far as latency is concerned there shouldn't be much, but it is very hard to know the answer to this portion of the question without knowing all the variables, and there are A LOT when it comes to wireless frequencies, as I am sure you are aware.

As suggested in the video link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJRh43flvQ8) passive speakers could be the solution. They usually come with basic audio wires and you would have to attach these to a 3.5mm audio jack yourself. They may also be called Cabinet or Bookshelf Loudspeaker. Impedance of these speakers is very important to avoid creating an ...
