    How to Add Bluetooth to Any Old Pair of Speakers

    We love Bluetooth and all its possibilities. Once the domain of dorky headsets, Bluetooth is now in mice, keyboards, phones, computers, tablets, fitness trackers, and so much more. One of the best applications we’ve seen, however, is Bluetooth audio.

    Bluetooth audio is simply the ability to pair your device, be it a phone, tablet, computer, or other, to a speaker or speakers for pure wire-free listening enjoyment. Bluetooth speakers are a big seller nowadays, and you’ve likely seen commercials for various models such as the Beats Pill or the Jawbone Jambox. We’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a Braven model and even have a full-on guide to portable Bluetooth speakers.

    Unfortunately, a good Bluetooth speaker is going to set you back between $150-$200. There are others that can be had for less, but what you’re really paying for is the convenience of not being tethered by a wire. You’re not going to get a whole lot of bass or oomph from one speaker about the size of a pint can of beer.

    That’s not to say a Bluetooth speaker isn’t worth considering if you’ve got money set aside for such luxuries, but we suspect most people still have an old set of desktop speakers sitting there, or even a real stereo with auxiliary inputs. The great thing about these, other than that they’re already paid for and play music just fine, is that they can easily be upgraded to accept streaming Bluetooth audio for well under $50.
