Customer Reviews

The sound is clean, crisp, and surprisingly loud for such a small speaker.
Michael Keeler
Finally I realized by digging thru the manual that the tiny indicator light on it is also a (hard to press) button.
Noah Hilsenrad
No returned emails or calls and just discovered that they don't even have the product available on their site.

First of all, I'm relatively sure this product is off the line by now. For the most part, it seems like many folks are having problems finding customer support, so I just wanted to share some of the simple fixes that worked for me.

Most problems should be solvable with the info in the woot.com forum archive here: […]

my experience follows

Out of the packaging, I ended up charging the device for some 2-3 hours as depicted in the instructions, but I was not able to get the transmitter and speaker to connect even though both lights were flashing. The instructions are somewhat undetailed, but the device should connect if you try the multiple device connection method in the manual. Hold the multiuse button on the speaker for 10 seconds till flashing quickly, then press the button/light on the transmitter for 5 seconds till it is also flashing quickly. I was quite relieved when I realized the instructions were at fault, not the hardware itself.

tl;dr press all buttons for a long time to make this device work

Purchased the unit July 2009 and have never looked back. Battery life is 6+ hours on a full charge, which has covered several Centuries this year. It easily syncs to and Bluetooth, but I do experience interference/signal drops due to my wireless Garmin cadence transmitter, so I have to carry my player in the right pocket of the bike jersey to avoid the drops. I'd recommend this product

Just got this thing. Started charging the speaker and plugged the transmitter into my iPhone 4. The transmitter connected right away and the speaker started playing, then wouldn't connect again after I unplugged/replugged it in. Figured out why and made it work...

- This was because I had to 'reset' the little transmitter- but there are no visible buttons! Finally I realized by digging thru the manual that the tiny indicator light on it is also a (hard to press) button. Fiddled with pressing that and it eventually reconnected.

- The speaker looks cool; compact and slick. But the buttons are also hard to press, and the main/power button is basically disguised as a 'cy-fi' logo. I.e. the logo is the mode indicator light AND button, but when you're pressing it you can't see what color the light is.

- The USB charging slot is covered by a tiny recessed rubber flap that is a pain in the ass to remove. Bah!

- In the product pics it looks like this comes with a few sizes of bike mounting rings; not so. Only came with one (the bigger one). But does have various rubber spacer strips to try. And no charging base- just a USB cord (not that I care about that).

- Speaker volume is decent. Kind of exactly what you'd expect for a little speaker like this. Should be fine for my commute through lower Manhattan and into Brooklyn.

- Pause/Play, Skip, and Volume controls work fine.

I purchased this device because I sometimes ride my bike alone and I like to listen to music as I ride. I do not like earphones because I can't hear others on the trail and I also cross streets where it is safer to listen for the traffic. The Cy Fi has worked flawlessly on my rides which average between 1 1/2 and 2 hours. I put my iPod in my pack and away I go. The only problem I have ever had is I sometimes forget to take the hard case off the iPod and it won't work. The wireless transmitter that I connect to the iPod must be push all the way in to work properly. The case I have for my iPod Touch must keep it from connecting all the wayCy-Fi Wireless Sports Speaker for iPod (Black). I recommend this product to all who like to listen to music while they ride, but don't like to have earplugs for safety reasons.

This really works once you get it started. Instruction manual is useless. As indicated by other reviewer you have to hold the multiuse button on the speaker for 10 seconds till flashing quickly, then press the button/light on the transmitter for 5 seconds till it is also flashing quickly. Once linked no problem. Speaker is very loud. Amazing sound quality. Very pleased with unit. I have ipod unit. There is a bluetooth unit which may have less linking problems. Long battery life is a plus. I was able to reach customer support at Cy-Fi on first attempt.

5/22/12 UPDATE
I never thought my very FAIR critique would ever be questioned or criticized. Below is an email I received from Amazon notifying me of a comment to my review.

"M. Dumitrescu says:
So you're not happy with the product and you have to resort to accusing some one of being a shill for the manufacturer? That makes you a d%%che (spelling change made so that this update will not be flagged)."

I stand by my review especially since my full name is shown for all to see. My claim that a very nice review was written by an employee of the company is not an accusation, but FACT. One only needs to do a simple google search and see that the said person worked for the company at the time of my purchase, review, and 9/16/09 update. So resorting to juvenile and baseless remarks are not required. Many of the average to poor reviews on this product reflect my comments of poor construction of the bracket and non-existent customer service.

JUST TO BE CLEAR, as I said in my initial review, it is a great product and is still working for me. Seeing that the price has dropped, I plan on purchasing more. The 3-star rating I gave is fair in my point of view. They lost 1 star for using cheap screws and another for poor customer service. Finally, I would only recommend this for someone that is handy and can fix the screw-bracket issue on their own. It is a shame...it appears that Cy-Fi has gone out of business.

It is now 7 weeks since I last heard from the company and there is no response. Just sent another email to see if they have a resolution based on the defect I have reviewed below.
