The way we experience music and the way we record and use music has changed dramatically, and over the years, different formats have created some fairly iconic tools. These have represented the specific era of the last century. Consider the rise of phonographs, vinyl records, cassettes, compact discs, digital music, MP3 and now dedicated streaming services. All of these devices are accessible through speaker hire.
The devices used to convert these formats into every day enjoyable sounds have also changed. The idea of the device hasn’t really changed (headphones and speakers are still the standard way of listening to music), yet the technology built into them and the shape they took is constantly being developed.
Today is the future, digital music is here, so you can expect all kinds of audio, including music, e-books, and communications, to become more adaptable and mobile.
Undoubtedly, cable-free speakers will slowly become the standard in the next few years. However, listening to other forms of non-wired music is likely to become standard.
WiFi speaker systems have been popular with music lovers. Supported by Sonos, Bose, Raumfeld, etc., the WiFi system seamlessly integrates stereo, home theater systems and other amplified audio equipment without the need for rewiring or complex programming. For example, with Sonos Bridge, you can connect to a wireless router and connect all Sonos players with one click. You can play music on any number of players simultaneously from any mobile device in your home.
Grell predicts that quality will play a major role in headphones and speakers, and music production because consumers choose high-quality sound recordings. This is a trend and has already begun, next is better Bluetooth wireless devices. This improves sound quality and battery life.
Technology continuously changed the way we listen to music. While speakers are not just meant for music, it’s also meant to provide better quality sounds to the way we play games, watch a movie, and communicate. Technology-enhanced speakers and mics allow us to better converse, enabling a smooth person to person or person to a group conversation.
We can expect a more complicated technology in speaker devices as the years unfold. The future that had been predicted has actually started and we are well on our way.
