Great quality, full and clear with simple setup.
Solid and sturdy, feels substantial. Battery life is good lasting as long as my iPad on one charge.
Easy and quick with iPad and iPhone, perfect for apple equipment.
I have tried a few other Bluetooth and AirPlay speakers and these are easily the best.
An essential buy for holiday or summer garden entertainment.
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.
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 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.
