Bluetooth was the most reliable method to connect to speakers for a period of time wirelessly. While, Wi-Fi has risen to glory in the last few years. Considering the music quality, the Bluetooth compresses the audio file so that to send the data without interference. On the other hand, Wi-Fi can wirelessly send audio without sacrificing the quality. Besides, when thinking about the connection methods, most Bluetooth speakers use Bluetooth wireless technology to stream music from another device, such as a smartphone. No other external network needed, and they can be used almost anywhere. But the Wi-Fi speakers require a Wi-Fi network to connect another device, while Wi-Fi is not accessible everywhere. Thirdly, regarding the transmission range, most Bluetooth works over a range of 10 meters, and obstacles between two devices can drastically reduce the range. While, a typical Wi-Fi router operates on the traditional 2.4 GHz band reach up to 46 meters indoor and 92 meters outdoor. Last but not least, Bluetooth speakers are usually less pricey than Wi-Fi ones.
