Multi-room speakers are designed for music enthusiasts looking to enjoy high-fidelity sound at an equal level throughout their household. Incorporating a Wi-Fi connection, these devices let you control everything on your smartphone. Some of them also feature voice assistants so you just have to say the word. However, when these devices incorporate such a wide range of features, how much do U.S. consumers usually spend on the purchase?
As of 2017, more than one in five U.S. respondents (18 to 59 years old and owner of smart multi-room speakers / wireless speakers) spend in excess of US$500 on a one-time purchase of these devices. The wireless speakers are a popular entity amongst the respondents with another 27% having spent up to $250 on them.
