5.0 out of 5 stars BTC450 18 Aug. 2013
By Dan
Verified Purchase
I purchased the btc450 for two reasons: 1. It would only work through the cigarette lighter. This would save the effort of charging it. 2. It had aptX which my friend said was better than a2dp, apparently my phone supports it (Galaxy S3).

The fact it had a hands free kits didn't bother me as there is one already in my car. Android devices allow you to choose what device you link up to. So I had the music to the btu450 and the calls to the car. I did test the hands free and the caller said it sounded much better than my car one. So I will be using it for both. Excellent.

The sound quality is very good indeed. Clear at all frequencies. I did hear noise through it though. This is not the fault of the btc450 but of the car (Mazda 6). I tried it in another car and there was no noise. It apparently comes from having the ground for the cigarette lighter and car stereo in different places causing ground loops. I purchased a kensington noise reducing cable (ground loop isolator) that Mr Sundareshawar recommended in his review along with the 3.5 female to female coupler. This worked excellently. No more strange noises.

To test to see if you will get this issue: charge your phone with the 12V socket you would use and plug your phone into the aux through the headphones. Put your stereo on aux, if there is noise coming though with no music you will most likely need the cable. Make sure the volume is not 0 as some stereos will cut the connection so you won't hear anything.

The usability when connected is excellent. The middle button connects to S Voice (a feature on Samsung mobiles) this allows you to ring people by saying the name in the phone book. It also works with my wife's siri Button on her iPhone.

I placed mine on the dash where the stereo is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, but only in price. 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase
I never usually review products but I was extremely impressed with this one. I own a BMW 3 series coupe. I wanted to connect my music wirelessly because I hate how scruffy wires all over the place look. I took a leap of faith going by previous reviews, but looking at the price I wasn't holding my breath.

This product turned out to be excellent. To sync it with my phone could not be more simple. Plug device in, search for it via bluetooth on your phone and conect. Not only does it sync with my itunes it also plays spotify. From the device you are able to skip tracks, pause, rewind and fast forward (and yes, this includes spotify). This means once you press play, you have no need to touch your phone again.

My phone calls come through perfect. The only time I notice any distortion is when I turn my cars volume to max and then it's noticelable, but quite frankly, this never happens. I have now stopped using my bmw bluetooth prep in favour for this. I also love that the cigarette usb port. It means I can stick a charger in when the batteries running low without hassle.

I think i've only ever written one review (which was negative) but this product is one that I beleive deserves it. If you want to spend little money but gain a top of the range product, this is the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase
Ditched the other similar looking one with the blue ring out of sheer frustration, for this.

There's no contest. Music and calls perfect, no interference, callers can hear me at motorway speeds, and auto-pairing when getting in the car - wow!
Easy install and initial pairing to iPhone. Always charged, and much, much better A2DP streaming quality. Tiny non-distracting, infrequently flashing light, dedicated music fwd/bwd buttons.
Delighted to have made the switch to this Kinivo.

Oh, and once more...auto-pairing. Very impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works very well. 7 Oct. 2014
By Sean
Very good indeed. Pairs perfectly with my Galaxy S3. Sound quality is great. Cable is long enough to reach to the rather stupidly placed AUX port and power socket in my car (Next to the hand brake ! Go figure.). Easy to use. Fairly good instructions. You might need to buy a noise suppression thingy for the AUX socket in your car (available on Amazon for tenner).

There is a stupidly bright intermittently flashing blue LED. You need to place the unit in front of you on the dash so that (1) you can easily press the buttons and (2) the mike is lined up with your mouth for hands-free phoning.
During the day the LED isn't a problem but in the dark it is very distracting to have a flashing blue LED in your peripheral vision. I solved it by covering it up with some insulation tape.

The cable looks a bit thin to me and thus it might be quite easy to damage so that's a bit of a concern. Wouldn't want to move it about much.

Would have got 5 stars if not for the LED and if the cabling was a bit thicker and stronger looking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Neat, Quality - what else do you need? 19 Sept. 2013

The installation took less than 5 minutes from opening the package to making my first test call.
Very neat and unobtrusive.
My main concern was what the Bluetooth audio streaming quality would be link - no need to worry at all, very good indeed.
