AudioBulb by GiiNii

Wires, meet your nemesis

Introducing AudioBulb: a wireless music and lighting system that revolutionizes how you play music throughout your home or office. Designed to work with iPods, iPhones, or an auxiliary input source, the patented idea came from the concept to combine something found in virtually every room (a light socket) with something people want in every room (music and light).

How many people does it take to screw in a light bulb?

AudioBulb requires no technical set-up, wires or custom installation. Three easy steps get you set-up (no, really, 3 steps):

  1. Simply twist AudioBulb into any light socket or lamp and power up.
  2. Connect your audio source via Apple 30-pin or Aux-In to the standalone base and press play.
  3. Listen to wireless music from up to 8 bulbs throughout any environment in minutes.

We made it even easier

We took away the wires, so why tether you to the docking station? Complete control is always at your fingertips with the included remote. You not only can modify the music, but also control the lighting and 4-stage dimmer so you can create the moods to match you playlist.

AudioBulb

Freedom for your music

AudioBulb lets you create two different zones, and configuring zones is about as simple as the initial set-up. Imagine sleeping in peace and quiet as other household members are up and about jamming to their favorite tunes in the next room. And, with a range of 50 to 100 feet (depending on environment) AudioBulb can reach from the entryway to the patio from a single base station.

And yes, we're green, too

AudioBulb also functions as a super-efficient LED light bulb - with or without music - that lasts for years with normal use (not like a typical light bulb that burns out quickly). You can even use the four-stage dimmer to create the lighting environment you want. With AudioBulb, you get a pristine audio and light solution for the fraction of the cost of a typical distributed audio system or other solutions.

I was very surprised at the ease of set-up and even more surprised at how good the sound was out of the lightbulb/speakers.
JD Cetola
Or, if you do put the GiiNii into a recessed floodlight fixture, then you're going to have a lot of empty space around the bulb itself which looks odd.
M. Erb
Highly recommended, especially if you want a simple-to-use wireless system in your home that produces great sounding music.

This is probably one of the most ill-conceived, kind of good idea things I've ever seen.

It seems a compelling proposition... a LED, energy saving lightbulb, that contains a wireless speaker. How cool is that? Well it's cool until you figure out that the speaker in most cases is either going to be pointing straight up to the ceiling, or straight down to the floor. So right off the bat you've got some issues with optimal sound dispersion. Then you've got to consider that the fixture the light/speaker will be in likely has a shade around it, further causing difficulty for sound dispersion. Then consider that the unique shape of the unit makes it not suitable for most fixtures (at least in my house) and that the kit only includes hardware for attaching a lampshade to a single lamp, not two. Why only provide one lampshade bracket when there are two speakers? Go figure.

We have numerous recessed light fixtures in our house. Great, or so I thought. It turns out that you can't really use these in dimmer controlled fixtures unless you make sure the dimmer is full on. Well, that's not going to happen most of the time in our house so I can't use them in the recessed fixtures. Also some of our fixtures are just too small in diameter for the unit to fit in. Another fail.

The transmitter/base is just something you've got to find space somewhere to put. If you are used to using a docking iPod speaker, then you've probably got the space. But otherwise it might actually be challenging to find an appropriate spot to put this where it's easy to get to when you need to undock your iPod.

I did not find it particularly easy to set up although it was not impossibly difficult.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
With the popularity of iPods and MP3 players, super expensive home sound systems, including expensive turntables, speakers, and subwoofers, have become a thing of the past. Today, we can literally carry our entire music collection in our hands, but we're carrying compressed files, so quality iPod docks and speakers are important if you desire and appreciate good sound.
The AudioBulb, by GiiNii, provides a unique solution: a wireless music and lighting system that you can play in any room in your home, including, if you have a light socket, outside in your front or backyard. The AudioBulb is super-easy to set up, I literally had the system up and running in about one minute. And the speakers sound great; I tried a variety of music, including jazz, rock 'n' roll, classical, and R&B, and the speakers produced a very clear sound. I even turned up the volume, and the speakers handled the bass and treble very well, with no distortion. I tried the speakers inside my home and they easily filled a moderate and even a large-sized room. I also tried these in my backyard and again the speakers performed well, offering great sound without the hassles of running wires or drilling holes through walls. The signal also didn't drop, even after I moved the base station out of the room and away from the speakers.
Now the downside. The light that the AudioBulbs produce is not all that great. Even at its brightest (there are four stages of brightness) the bulbs did not seem to produce that much light. The bulbs are also much heavier than a standard light bulb, so if your light source is a small lamp, be careful while screwing in the bulb to ensure it doesn't tip over your lamp. Also, don't drop the bulb. I don't get the impression they would survive a fall on a hard surface, such as a tile floor.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This thing is (simply put) awesome.

Positive Aspects:
* The speakers have a light built into them so you do not lose your lamps light giving abilities.
* The speakers sounded reasonable given the limitations of the system.
* The dock also charges the iPod/iPhone.
* Setup was super easy--2 mins.
* The Bulbs fit in my ceiling fan which I was a pleasant surprise.
* Has an audio input for use with other devices.

Some things to consider:
* Base station has a bright blue light which blinks when the speakers aren't on. It's annoying.
* The light these give off has a very odd spectrum. People look jaundiced under them.

Verified Purchase
Being an audiophile, I hesitated on buying these for over the dinner table given the mixed reviews. For reference, I have a custom $15,000 7.1ch home theater setup in the cigar room, the family room uses a 5.1ch Bose system, and I don't listen to FM radio because of the low quality. I wanted some speakers over the dinner table, simply so I could put some Pandora on to avoid hearing my in-laws chew their food when they visit, and was considering in-ceiling speakers when I came across these. I would equate these to mid-range Altec Lansing PC speakers, but with better bass. I've tried them with everything from Kanye to Metallica's "One" (for the machine gun guitar build up) to the Gipsy Kings, and at a background noise volume, I am very pleased. It goes without saying that cranking them up reveals the expected "tinny" sound, but these would never be turned up that high.

As for the lights, this was another concern. I have can-lights all up and down this particular ceiling, and the idea of replacing 2 of them seemed odd. However, this gamble also paid off. They look like Tony Stark's Arc reactor, and the dimmable feature is great (these particular cans did not have dimmers, and saved me the trouble of installing them).

As an Android guy, the now non-compatible Apple pin configuration was a non-issue, but apparently they have adapters for all kinds (not sure about the iphone 5). Bluetooth connectivity would have been nice for audio, but sometimes the ease of an Aux jack is nice for guests anyway. A subwoofer add on would be sweet. Your old smartphone could find a permanent resting place by the base station, functioning as a device that used to be called "an mp3 player."

The box was opened and the system was installed in less than 30min.

If you're looking at these, odds are, they will meet or exceed expectations!
