I think its like everything else, if the hardware is capable then yes, but you have no idea how fast it is at either end of the link. If you just want to listen to music, then fine.

I was under the false-impression that Bluetooth 5 would reduce latency, but
more detailed research prooved very little audio improvements in this new
version of Bluetooth.

I don’t use Bluetooth speakers because of possible latency. Having said
that I understand from a Podcast from Jonathan Mosen that the new Bluetooth
5 standard, if I remember correctly, might improve the situation.

So checking the Bluetooth standard of the speakers and your machine might
reveal if this is the Bluetooth standard. If not I would personally avoid
them and stick to a wired solution.

Some speakers pair with each other wirelessly but accept a wired input
from a sound source into one of the speakers which may be a solution. I
have some speakers which can do this but have never used them on a PC.

Hi all,

I am considering a set up with clips ProMedia to Bluetooth speakers for my
new PC. I have had less than stellar experiences with phones and Bluetooth
speakers or headsets. There is latency, and with my Apple TV and sound bar,
it was unusable, because the voice consistently miss the first few
syllables due to the delay in the speaker kicking in. This would be totally
unusable on a PC of course with the screen reader and software speech. My
old PC has a hardware card for speech, and the Mac has USB speakers. So I
have no experience with a PC or Mac for that matter, with Bluetooth
speakers and software speech. I really like these speakers, but not if
they’re going to present issues with the software speech for the screen
meter. Comments?
