Hi Everyone,

I have a question regarding which bluetooth speaker is best for teaching classical lessons on zoom. I know using headphone is one option, and perhaps an option that a lot of you are using. But I prefer not to use a headphone when demonstrating. I also teach lessons at different locations, so that's why I choose to use a bluetooth speaker instead of a wired sound system.

I know a lot of Bose and Sony bluetooth speakers are designed for pop/rock. So I am looking for a speaker that is not bass heavy. I also know some people may use multiple bluetooth speakers to get the stereo sound. I am only looking for one speaker though. Any recommendations?

Also, just a side question here. I know this may not be possible with the current bluetooth technology. But is there a bluetooth speaker that has a decent mic for capturing the piano? There is perhaps a very small market for such a speaker even if the technology allows it. Just a thought...

Personally I wouldn't use Bluetooth due to the added latency issues they tend to bring - wired all the way.

I can recommend the "Boom 2" speaker from Ultimate Ears. I have used one of these for years, and listened to all sorts of classical music on it. The quality is really very good.

I have heard that the "Boom 3" is even better.

I got Behringer Eurolive B112D 1000W 12 inch few months ago, very happy with my choice.

Sony is bad and so is ultimate ears and so are most of them, all geared toward rap even more than pop / rock. That means excessive, non accurate, intruding bass and lack of mid frequencies. I use https://www.dali-speakers.com/ it's more expensive that your average Bluetooth speaker but it sounds right with everything and it's nice on the eyes too. My 2c.

Enjoy.

Maybe this article about best speakers on the market will be helpful too. Here you have reviews, prices, pros and cons on 10 different brands and kinds of powered speakers. I would't go for something cheaper than $500 probably cause it will have an influence on the sound quality of course.
