Which outdoor speakers are best?
13 February 2024
Own a garden? Love music? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to both, chances are you may have already asked yourself ‘which outdoor speakers are best?’
If you want an all-weather audio solution to help liven up those garden parties, there’s plenty of options on the market. But to get one that suits your needs, there’s a few important things to consider.
Is it IP safe?
The most important thing to look for in an outdoor speaker is its IP designation. This is a fancy way of saying - is it really waterproof?
An IP56- or IP66-rated device can handle strong jets of water without getting damaged. So, if it's raining heavily or if water splashes on it, the speaker will continue to function just fine, with all its electrical components staying safe and dry.
Having said that, just remember that they’re not designed to be submerged underwater. So, it's like a gadget that's good for places where there's dust or rain, but please don’t take it swimming with you!
Does it look the part?
When it comes to outdoor technology, many customers prefer something that blends in seamlessly with the natural environment. If you love to share your garden with local wildlife, then don’t scare them away with a big black boombox.
Opt instead for something discreet, like Lithe Audio’s all-in-one bluetooth outdoor speaker.
