Good Speaker Bad Setup Connectivity
19 February 2019
I also have the non-bluetooth version of this speaker and it is amazing. So, when I wanted another speaker for my home theater I thought I will get this one, which comes with bluetooth.
Just like the non-bluetooth model, this looks sturdy, sound is great (for the price), loud and it is very small so does not take up too much space.
The real problem is setting it up. I have at least 10 gadgets in my house and all of them are high end devices (Apple Products, Premium HP and Dell computers) so everything is bluetooth enabled. So, I am used to bluetooth a lot. Using this speaker, getting it connected is a hassle. The buttons for bluetooth setup are hard to use and the instructions are not clear. The speaker also does not follow the standard red and green indicator for bluetooth but uses blue and white which causes a lot of confusion. also, disconnecting it is a hassle. connecting it to another gadget is a hassle.
Also, the AUX Cable does not work at all. I don't if the problem is with the cable, or the speaker AUX connection. And when I used this with my windows machine (bluetooth only, because, AUX cable connection does not work), the computer started having problems. But it worked fine with Mac (again bluetooth only, aux cable does not work on Mac also) so may be its a windows issue. but yes if you are planning to use with windows, things may not work even on bluetooth.
So, yes, this is a good speaker. But the AUX wired audio does not work. It causes problems with Windows computer. If you are going to use this with bluetooth only, then, go for it. Planning to use wire, be careful.
