Pairing with my iPhone was immediate right out of the box. I turned on the speaker, went to the bluetooth discover screen on my phone, it picked up the unpaired device, I entered the super-secret code number (0000), and it was done.
Sound quality is good (for this type of speaker). The sound is clear, there is very little (but at least some) bass, and it doesn't sound tinny. I bought it for playing background music on the deck and it's certainly clear enough and there's definitely enough volume for that.
The description implied and it should be clearly stated that in addition to working as a speaker this also works as a speaker phone and can also pass voice commands to the phone. In fact it works just like the Motorola S9 headset except that forward and reverse don't seem to work with my iPhone4 (and it's much more difficult to wear as a headset).
Now for the stupid decisions:
There's a very bright and annoying light that insists on flashing when music is playing. According to the (well written) manual it means there's either a call or music on standby. Near as I can tell there isn't.
The AC charger is universal (at one end); it accepts 100-240V at 50/Hz. It's the other end that I have issues with. For some reason Motorola chose to use a micro-USB connector which is far from universal. Even though it supplies 5VDC just like any other USB power supply if you lose theirs then you're out of luck.Read more ›
the bad: the highs seem really scratchy even at low volume when connecting via blue-tooth (maybe its my phone?) as it dose not do this when using the line in port, range is only about 9 feet
The sound quality is very good. It's mildly tinny, but nothing exceptionally bad, especially considering the small size, when some tinniness is pretty much guaranteed.
Bluetooth pairing with my Droid 2 Global was relatively smooth, though I've had some minor issues connecting when the speaker's battery is low, even while it's plugged in and charging.
It's very nice to be able to control the music from both my phone and the speaker, but a minor glitch is that this will only work with whatever app is specified as THE app that external controls will affect, even if that app isn't currently being used.
It seems to work well for phone calls as well. I can hear the other person just fine and haven't heard any complaints about how I sound to them.
All in all, this is a handy device that works great, especially for its physical size and price point.
