Wi-Fi vs Bluetooth – The Choice is Clear

Find out the advantages of Wi-Fi over Bluetooth! Discover how STRIVA is revolutionizing the way you listen to music!

Koss has cut the cord thanks to STRIVA Wi-Fi technology. Our STRIVA headphones are the first in the world to have a built-in Wi-Fi receiver so you can stream thousands of free, high-quality internet radio stations directly to your STRIVA headphones wherever you have a Wi-Fi connection. Don’t have a Wi-Fi connection? You can still stream music wirelessly from your smart phone, MP3 player or any other device with audio output with the STRIVA  CAP.

Wi-Fi gives STRIVA technology and advantage over Bluetooth in range and bandwidth. With your STRIVA headphones on you have the freedom to walk up to 300 feet away from the source while enjoying an exceptional sound. Because STRIVA brings Wi-Fi to Hi-Fi you receive low compression, near lossless Audio data which creates a much more natural and enjoyable listening experience.  Bluetooth is useful when transferring data between two devices if speed is not an issue. Wi-Fi was built to facilitate data transfer on networks securely.
