Absolutely incredible how Sony manages to squeeze out as much sound and the bass from this small portable device. Clear and nice sound with moderately rich bass. This will have to come with me in the garden, on trips and sometimes also get to act multi-room speakers in the house. For there is no worry to reach more to pair it with other Google cast devices and manage them as a group from Spotify. Absolutely brilliant!
The only thing that pulls down the grade is short cord for power. And that only comes with a cord. Although there is a need to charge the device. And one to connect it for example to a PC. I do not agree Marcsod in what he writes. I think it is good that it is separate cable for power. Otherwise I charge the battery unnecessarily when operating on mains constant.
I have not had time to test the battery drive so much and the hassle of the discharge "fast" in standby. Will return when I have tested it more. Saw that there was a setting in the unit around these pieces. Possibly something that the other has failed to set the ...?
Now I tested the battery and do not agree that the battery is bad when the unit is in standby. Rather the opposite. I play for an hour. Leave the unit for a week. Playing back one hour. Let it stand for one day. A new hour, stand for a week. Etc ... I am still waiting to load it for the first time (not initala installation charge included).
This is a disaster Sony! I have it connected to the computer with a USB cable. Thought it would be the perfect PC speaker ... Unfortunately it is not enough with one cable, no, there must be a charging cable as well. The battery lasts only three days fully charged in standby, I must have two cables constantly connected. Sound stops working frequently. The only way is to produce clip and do a restore. Not getting better with Sony's own software. How will it work when I use the wireless functions when not even a single cable works, I dare not even think about. Then we come to the really big joke - the sound is crummy! Unclear and tinny. The only thing that is reasonably good, the base. Sony will find as usual a lot of fancy words to deceive their clients. Taste these:
LD ™: Transmission of High-Resolution Audio content
The music files are restored with DSEE HX
Clear Audio + improves music
Digital S-Master HX amplifier
And then not be able to update the internal software via the USB cable's very strange. Instead, you need to be connected to the wifi ... This product will apparently be used wirelessly ... (but which constantly need to be plugged in because the battery disconnect ...) One may wonder how they're like Sony?
Okay, so I've been looking out kid ipad to install an app that can update the software and fiddle with the sound. Then I need a phone or toad of the right kind to use this device ??? Now the sound is slightly better (acceptable) but had wished for better resolution of the equalizer. Someone tipped off about Equalizer APO but it worked for five minutes ...
I bought my H.ear go to this year's holiday and now after a few weeks had time to get to know me a little bit with it. My desire to get a mobile speaker has really become besannad. It is now with the family wherever we go. At home and in the garden we run wifi and on the beach and in the boat, we connect on the Bluetooth. Oddly, this works just as simple as it sounds. Sound-wise it enables to deliver really good. Clear and clean. Extra Bass button makes some difference, but it is best to turn off when you listen to documentaries. So are you looking for a compact machine that is simple and with good quality feel you have found the right place.
I also have a small minus, and this charger is wrong abbreviation cable.
