So I was advised by Anker to buy a noise isolation (ground loop) jack that connects to the audio jack. Immediately the static was gone! It's only $9 on Amazon, and I strongly suggest you buy them together!!!
I bought this on the recommendation of the review site Wirecutter. I used to highly value their opinion and use their site quite often. Although I am an expert on electronics, I do not have time to use and review all of the products that I need to use for fun and/or convenience. They usually do a good job, but in the case of Bluetooth car kits, they got it wrong. This is odd, because their old first choice is much better. This makes me wonder about their objectivity.
Prior to using this device, I had the iClever Himbox that I, sadly, spilled coffee on when I had to slam on my brakes one day. I had bought the Himbox on the recommendation of Wirecutter as well. So, before purchasing a new one, I went to the site to see if they had updated their review of car Bluetooth interfaces and they had. They recommended the Anker SoundSync and since both are only about $20, I got both. Although, this is their top pick, I found it vastly inferior. Now, on to the actual review.
I used this device for about 3 months to make sure that I had the full experience. The first hiccup with this device is that you MUST USE A GROUND LOOP ISOLATOR (this is the one I chose and it works well: AUKEY Ground Loop Noise Isolator for Car Stereo Systems and Home Audio Systems, 3.5mm Audio Cable Included). If the SoundSync is used without the isolator, there will be alternator whine.
The device does work. The microphone works very well and gives clear sound to the caller on the other end. Siri works well and understands voice commands about as well as without any external microphone. The phone calls go through very well.
The second place where this device falls on its ear is music streaming. I use my phone via Bluetooth in the car to both make phone calls and listen to music with iHeart Radio or Apple music. The Anker SoundSync severely clips the low end of the musical signal. I have a nice stereo system in my car with subwoofers. When using the SoundSync, the bass is very muddled, muddy and is very quiet. I find this strange as Bluetooth is a digital protocol and should transmit low range sounds just as easily as high.
Another minor downside to this device is that the cord is not very long. This limits the ability to place the microphone in a place that is both convenient and effective.
I would highly recommend using the iClever Himbox if music sound quality is important. Also, the Himbox does not require a ground loop isolator and in my experience works just as well with or without.
I hope this helps and that my experience can benefit the reader.
Update: After I left this review, Anker contacted me and offered me a refund. I would like to note that I do use several Anker devices and that most of them perform well. I have reviewed the other items that I use (lightning cables, Bluetooth speaker and earbuds, HDD enclosure, etc). Anker typically makes a solid product, this one just needs work. I wish i could give half a star for the excellent customer service.
The next issue I faced which is really not the fault of the device was that there was a lot of feedback due to connecting to the aux and power in the car. This is a common problem caused by ground loops which happens when the audio source and the speaker use the same power source. This would have happened with any device including when I used to connect my phone to the Aux and then to the power to charge it while on long drives. It is important to note that here though, as I found that to correct it, I had to additionally purchase a ground loop filter (which is sold on amazon as well, and was not expensive) which resolved the issue.
Finally, we took care of all the issues to install.....how did it work?! I found that it worked well for what it was doing. I could hear the caller through the speakers in my car, they could hear me well enough. The mic did pick up a lot of other noise while driving, so that was unfortunate. I thought it might have to do with having it placed flat next to the shift knob so I did try to string it across the car and put it next to the stereo as originally planned, the callers noticed still a lot of other sounds like wind, traffic, even if I had hit a bump... and often the background noise was louder than me.
I would say that the product did what it was supposed to do, you cant really hold it against the product for the length of the wires, I don't think most people have their aux jacks in the middle console, and you can't really blame it for the ground loop noise, and at the price I don't really expect high level noise cancelling. So I gave it a 3. With a few tweaks (you can build the ground loop filter in, alot of products do) I would give it a 5 star. I can talk hands free in my car and I didn't have to buy the OEM bluetooth kit for it which would have been several hundred dollars, so there's that!
Edit: Their customer service reached out to me and issued a full refund without return of the product due to my review, apologizing that the product was a dissappointment. I did not expect that. Due to the exceptional customer service I did give it 4 stars.
