Music has been a large part of my life for as long as I can remember. My family is filled with talented musicians who have shared their love of music and acoustic sound with me. I love many different genres of music and am inspired by new sounds. As a lover of all things technology, I become intrigued when innovative technology is used to enhance the musical experience. Since my interests are generally split between music and technology, I am intrigued when innovations in technology enhance my listening experiences.
Check out the following ways in which technology is improving the way we listen to music.
Music from the Cloud to the Car
Google has thrown their hat in the mobile music ring by teaming up with car manufacturers to form the Open Automotive Alliance. If you are an owner of an Android device you know how difficult it can be to listen to music from your device in the car. Recently, Google announced a new collaboration with select car manufacturers including Audi, Honda and GM to help bring the Android platforms to your vehicle. By the end of 2015, you can purchase vehicles that allow you to sync YouTube upcoming music and the Google cloud based Play Music software to enhance your driving and listening experience.
Searching for a speaker small enough to fit in your hand, yet powerful enough to fill your entire space with sound? Search no further than the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker by Bose. This ultra-compact speaker will give you the great sound that you have been searching for. You can use your tablet, smart phone or any Bluetooth compatible device. The tiny device gives you a full range of listening so you will have no trouble hearing your tunes in full surround sound. Priced at less than $200, it can be considered moderately affordable.
Where Music Meets Wi-Fi
Could you have ever imagined that technology could take us as far as it has? Now you can pump music throughout your entire home with the touch of a button. Wi-Fi Music is the new way to enhance the listening experience. In my opinion Bose offers the best when it comes to raising the bar on the way we hear music. With this new technology you can stream Pandora and music in the Google cloud throughout your entire home, wirelessly. Download the Free SoundTouch app to your Android, iPhone, iPad or any device and enjoy the music.
