Wireless speakers and headphones encompass various speakers, sound bars, earphones and headphones which can be used to play audio from various types of electronic devices. Wireless speakers and headphones can be used with television sets, computers, multimedia players and smartphones, among others to enhance the volume and quality of the audio output. With increasing adoption of wireless technology coupled with consumer’s inclination towards hassle free connectivity, wireless speakers and headphones have gained immense popularity in the recent years. Such devices communicate with the use of Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi technology to ensure seamless streaming of audio wirelessly. In terms of technology, Bluetooth enabled audio devices have been immensely popular on account of effortless connectivity coupled with higher degree of mobility. Users can connect their smartphones and tablets with their Bluetooth earphones and headphones to ensure wireless streaming of audio files. In addition, there has been a rising demand for low-end Bluetooth speakers which are easy to carry and offer higher audio output as compared to smartphones and tablets.

However, installation of multiple speakers leads to higher overall cost and complications in speaker placement. As an alternative to speakers, sound bars have been gaining popularity on account of its affordability and compact size. Sound bars are relatively thin as compared to traditional speakers and yet incorporate features such as stereo and surround sound audio thereby, making it a popular choice at affordable prices. Furthermore, there has been a rising trend of installing Wi-Fi speakers in multiple rooms within the house in connection with a consolidated home entertainment system. Thereby, with numerous types of devices available for a wide range of applications, the overall wireless speakers and headphones market is expected to witness significant adoption in the following years.
