In each izzylink group, any individual speaker can be the master, streaming music to the others. When you want to take the lead to share your own music, press the Bluetooth button on the speaker in your room and share that music from your device instantly. Other speakers in the same izzylink group will play the same music in sync at the same time.

Then, with the edition of the second unit that I was sent so that I could review the multiroom experience, these little beauties come alive. I had set the master up, by switching it on and pairing it. The second unit went into the kitchen. I had music playing through the original, so all it took was switching the secomd unit on, pressing group, and then pressing group on the first one. There was a slight stutter in the music then back it came through both speakers. That simple. I once helped to set up a multi room system for a small hotel and it was a four day job which included a custom made unit to control the music in each zone. These setups used to cost a fortune, now with a little bluetooth magic the job's done in seconds. I can have my music, or internet radio, or - and this is the best bit - my audio books playing through the speakers in both rooms.
The sound quality may not be as perfect as a sound snob would want, but my friendly neighbourhood ex-sound engineer pronounced it, "good enough for rock and roll". I love the ability to still be able to hear what I'm listening to in the kitchen without bluetooth headphones cutting out from distance, and actually without being forced to wear headphones at all. With these I no longer need a radio or a separate stereo. Worth the money? Absolutely, and I will be getting myself two more, one for the office and one for the bedroom.
The effect of having your music already waiting for you as you wander about your home is great (if not a bit hotel-like). You no longer need to blast it out of one room so that it can be heard in another. It’s just there, waiting for you to arrive.
The volume of each unit can be adjusted individually and the overall playback volume can be adjusted on your phone (or whatever else you’re playing music on). So the sound in each room can be exactly the way you want it to be. Sound quality is good – well, that is, for a Bluetooth speaker. You won’t be replacing your Hi-Fi with these; the bass can be a bit muffled and high-ends can be a bit tinny, but overall the sound is good and maximum volume is pretty powerful.
There are a couple of things about the grouped set up that you might not quite understand looking at the online explanations.
Firstly, the Bluetooth connection doesn’t work like a cell network. You’re only ever paired to one speaker and that pairing doesn’t change unless you change it manually. What does that mean exactly? Basically, if the two (or more) speakers are far enough apart and you’re playing music from a phone that’s in your pocket, then you’re likely to move out of range of the speaker you’re paired to and lose your music from all of them. Ideally you should keep your playback device in one place (like a dock) and pair to the nearest of the group of Izzys. At least the Bluetooth range is excellent. You only have minimal playback control from the speakers themselves (pause/play) but not enough to go without the need to return to your music source to select tracks or whatever.
Break the grouping between the speakers and you can play different music on each unit.
The other issue with these speakers (and probably all of the similarly ‘grouped’ types) is that, in order to remain in sync with all the other speakers in the group (despite the lag in transmission time between each unit), the control speaker buffers about a half second of audio during playback. This is fine for music, but it is terrible for video! Trying to play a video with the audio piped into the Izzy group means that the image is a quarter to half a second ahead of the sound you’re hearing, which is terribly distracting. I’d hoped that when my wife is watching video in one room I could come and go from another and keep up with what’s going on. But for the person watching the video the audio delay is just unbearable, which effectively kills this option.
The idea of multi-room Bluetooth is great and Philips aren’t the only people making this type of speaker system. Considering the cost of having audio wiring fed throughout your house, the cost of this type of system isn’t too prohibitive. What the Izzylink system brings is easy grouping leaving your WiFi router out of the loop.
I don’t have a competitors system to compare these against, but in isolation they’re very good. They look really nice, but are also discrete enough to disappear into the background when properly colour coded. It’s a shame they don’t have more controls built in, but that’s more a niggle than a real fault. They’re easy to group and to pair, so no IT skills are required to set them up. And right now, I can see they’re essentially ‘buy one get one ½ price” on Amazon, which seems like a great deal.
