Don't think I've been this disappointed in something I've bought for a long time. I read the reviews and although I'd never heard of the brand it all looked perfect for my requirements. Received the twin pack which is beautifully packaged (very apple like) and when I get the first speaker out I was delighted with the look and feel of it...sturdy, nice design and complimented perfectly with my macbook. So far so good.

Set up was easy-ish! It took me about 20 mins to get both speakers working, the first one was really easy but the second one was a bit more tricky to hook up to my wi-fi network. However eventually iI got it working fine. The instructions were nice and clear so top marks for that too.

I eagerly selected my first song to play, having set one speaker upstairs and one downstairs. As the song kicked in I had to adjust the volume and very quickly the disappointment began...

The music was muffled and very flat sounding so I looked at the instructions to see if I could adjust the treble and bass to my liking. There is no way to adjust these settings other than at the source via iTunes which I had already done. To be honest the sound these things emitted was worse than my internal speakers on my 2009 iMac. I tried placing the speakers at different angles and heights and moved them both to the same room but they still sounded quite ropey.

For the price, they look solidly built and look great but if its great sound you're after then look elsewhere. If AQAudio can improve this then I would look at buying again but on this occasion I am returning them for a refund.

I've loved this ever since I bought it. As I work from home I just take it wherever I go and connect directly to my mac, it's even been outside now summers arrive and the sound quality is superb.

I think these are absolutely brilliant. Well made, good sound quality and a decent styling. A bit pricey, but still not bad value compared to other quality sound kit. I use them almost always with iTunes over our home wifi, but they work just as well with their own wireless connection to an iPhone, so you could take them anywhere.

These are a dream. Well built, solid and easy to move about. When away from wifi, the personal hotspot method of connecting works easily.

The only upgrades I would like to see are having the option of leaving the speaker ready to receive permanently when not plugged in and being able to control more than one speaker through Spotify without having to use the computer and Airfoil.

But build and sound quality are excellent. Highly recommended.

The AQ Smartspeakers are a quality product, even down to the packaging. The speakers look beautiful and are reassuringly weighty with amazing build quality.

The set up is incredibly simple via an iPad or iPod touch and, most importantly, the sound quality is excellent. I play music through an iMac and the stereo functionality through the iMac a bonus. The only negative at the moment is that the batteries seem to drain even when switched off, so after a few days of inactivity they still need recharging. I understand there's a software update imminent so hopefully this may fix this.

Would I recommend these speakers? Absolutely, I don't see anything as good or as beautiful to compare to these on the market.

I have had my AQ speakers now for a few months. I bought 2, so I could have full stereo. It took a little time to set up, due to my not reading the instructions. For the first time in many years, I am listening to my music fully, hearing the instruments and voices crisply and just sitting enjoying! Clearly, the sound is the thing and the speakers really deliver. Further, the battery life is also great and convenient plus, if we ever have a summer again, it is great to be able to move them from room to room. Great, I will buy another 2 soon and I highly recommend these to others. I love the look too!
