The Roberts Bluetooth Speakers range is designed to express your personality in sound and style.
A Bluetooth speaker is a device that enables you to play music from another device – like a smartphone, or a tablet. They’re available in lots of different styles and designs, but don’t have wires that need connecting to anything to work. A Bluetooth speaker connects wirelessly to your chosen device.
The Roberts range of Bluetooth speakers include the Beacon 310, Beacon 320 & Beacon 330. These are portable Bluetooth speakers that connect to a Bluetooth device such as a smartphone, tablet or PC to stream to audio.
A Bluetooth speaker works in a similar way to the stereo in your car. It connects to the source of the sound. For example, if you have music streaming on your phone – Apple Music or Spotify, perhaps – you can connect it to your Bluetooth speaker to play music through it. It’s easy to do. In your phone’s settings menu, select the option to enable Bluetooth. You should then see an option to pair to a new device, if you’re setting up a portable Bluetooth speaker for the first time, or connect to nearby devices.
Make sure the Bluetooth speaker is switched on, and it should show as one of the available devices. Simply select it, and enjoy your music with excellent sound quality.
Roberts has been synonymous with delivering perfect sound quality for 90 years, with premium-quality products, and we’re proud of our portable Bluetooth speaker collection. The Beacon Bluetooth speaker range delivers superb music and sound quality from stylish, retro-inspired designs.
Choose from the Beacon 330, Beacon 320 or Beacon 310. These Bluetooth speakers provide crystal-clear audio and are capable of between 12-15 hours of portable play before needing to be recharged again, so you can listen to music all day, if you like. The Beacon range comes in a choice of fashionable colours, including duck egg, berry red, sunburst yellow, dusky pink and pastel cream, so they’re distinctive and individual, and look great around the home.
Like all Roberts products, our Bluetooth speakers come complete with a two-year warranty and free two-day delivery.
When shopping for wireless Bluetooth speakers, you’ll find a wide range, giving you lots of choice. The best type of Bluetooth speaker for you depends on exactly what you want it for; sound quality is generally very good across most products but if you want a speaker for a party, you’ll want more of a ‘boom box’ model that’s capable of projecting a big sound.
Other factors to consider when choosing a Bluetooth speaker – aside from budget, for prices vary significantly – include battery life, style and size. Some of the best Bluetooth speakers are compact, and just a few inches high or wide, so they can fit into the smallest of spaces but still deliver excellent sound. Wireless Bluetooth speakers are portable, and some are waterproof too – useful if you’re taking yours outside, or on holiday by the pool.
As well as standalone Bluetooth speakers, many DAB radios have Bluetooth connectivity, so you can use them to play music through too.
The creation of Bluetooth technology is widely credited to Dr Jaap Haartsen, who conceived it while working at Swedish company Ericsson in 1994. It was then developed by four other corporations alongside Ericsson – Nika, Toshiba, Intel and International Business Machines Corporation. The first Bluetooth specification was published in 1999, with the first mobile phone – a Sony Ericsson – with Bluetooth launched in 2001.
Since then, the high-speed wireless technology used by Bluetooth has been developed further. The first Bluetooth speaker was believed to be launched in 2006, released by a company called Soundmatters. The Bluetooth 5 version was released in 2017.
