Smart phones and other mobile devices are great for playing music and videos, but their small speakers often leave a lot to be desired when it comes to sound quality and volume.
Luckily, most modern smartphones and tablets can wirelessly transmit their sound to large, great sounding external speakers via a wonderful technology known as Bluetooth.
Bluetooth speakers are readily available at Amazon (#ad) and elsewhere, but what if you already own a traditional set of speakers that you really like?
Great news! You can easily turn your favorite speaker into a Bluetooth speaker with an inexpensive Bluetooth receiver. (#ad)
Simply plug the Bluetooth receiver into your favorite set of stereo speakers via the standard 3.5mm jack (you might need an inexpensive adapter), then turn on both the Bluetooth receiver and your mobile device. The two will “pair up” and you’ll be able to listen to your favorite music through your favorite speakers!
As a bonus, you can also use most Bluetooth receivers to play music from your mobile device through your home stereo receiver or car audio system!
