Does the job and that's about it

Matt M., Newegg
5 November 2013
  • Summary: A decent product overall, if it self paired automatically and if the bass was stronger when streaming music, it would get 5 eggs.
  • Pros: Easy to mount and pair with phone Does what it says it will do, allows hands free phone conversations using your vehicles speakers and allows you to stream music from your phone via bluetoooth to your vehicle's speaker system
  • Cons: You have to manually pair it with your phone each time you get in the vehicle by pushing the disc Bluetooth audio quality is poor compared to inline audio and factory bluetooth audio connections in vehicles. Sounds OK overall, but is very weak on bass

Very Nice

Danniel I., Newegg
25 February 2013
  • Summary: This deice is really nice. I am surprised of how well the music plays in it. I think the sound distortion is a mix between this device and my iPhone. Either way, very nice device. Gets a bit warm when long use.. I hope that is not an issue moving forward.
  • Pros: Sounds very clear. Very little loss in sound quality. If the device is positioned right, the mic works very well. Easy setup.
  • Cons: The lights do some funky things when trying to pair like stay red or not turn on at all even though it still works. Don't like having t o pair manually, but that is not so major. The sound from the other person when on the call is a but distorted. I have to turn it down from music to voice call. ...

Works well, sounds good, easy to use

Gregg H., Newegg
15 February 2013
  • Summary: I haven't had the ground loop issue some have described. The device works as advertised.
  • Pros: Music sounds good, calls are clear, button pauses music and handles phone functions (answer/hang up).
  • Cons: You must push the button on the microphone when you get in the car in order to connect this device to the phone.

Highly Recommended

Adam T., Newegg
28 December 2012
  • Summary: At this price, with the additional end of year clearance, there's no reason to be on the fence.. just buy it already.
  • Pros: Really easy setup, love the magnetic base it sits on. Small enough that I could still find a place to put it on my very strange console (Toyota Yaris). Music playback is pretty clear, especially for BT. Siri can hear me loud and clear on my iPhone 5.
  • Cons: Siri's voice sounds horribly muffled, but it still understandable.

Gets the job done

Phillip B., Newegg
30 October 2012
  • Pros: Pairs quickly & answers - before your call goes to voicemail great sound quality for music playback and caller's voice doesn't look ugly
  • Cons: Callers complain that they can't hear me that well. The microphone is on my dash directly in front of me, and should work. If I hold the "puck" directly in front of my face, it works better. But this is impractical. The single button interface is horrible. One tap to answer/hangup/pause/unpause, ...

Excellent

Lan N., Newegg
29 September 2012
  • Summary: I was considering between this and the parrot, the parrot cost a little above a hundred + wiring harness + installation brings it to 200+, considering this thing deliver the same basic functionality for 1/4 the price, I'm happy.
  • Pros: The best and easiest to installed in-car bluetooth. Music play well, call sounds great, people say they can hear me just fine on the other side.
  • Cons: Wish they have more buttons rather than just one that you have to tap multiple times or hold for 2-3 sec. (Hold for longer will turn it off, so it's kind of annoying, hard to determine when to release it) last song (triple taps) and turning on voice command (hold for 2-3 sec) doesn't work on Gala...

Love it!

Ryan P., Newegg
24 September 2012
  • Pros: I love this thing. Great price from Newegg. I like that they give you some extra wires to make your connections. In order to rig it the way I wanted, I needed some extra length. It was very easy to set up and I had no problems pairing it with my android phone. The built in controls also work perf...
  • Cons: Kind of expensive overall, but Newegg had the best price by far.

Hands-Free Bluetooth

Kehvan Z., Newegg
23 July 2012
  • Summary: Bought this from a Newegg Marketplace seller: Cellular5Star. Excellent service! The item was here just a couple days after I ordered it.
  • Pros: Easy to install, very small and unobtrusive, simple to pair and operate. Great sound for music and callers. Once I activate bluetooth on my phone, they connect to each other and my phone starts playing music. It's pretty nice.
  • Cons: Plenty of wire. How is this a con? It's kinda ugly having all this wire, thin though it is, bundled up on the dash board. I understand and appreciate having as much wiring as there is, with the added option of adding more length if needed, but it's just too much for MY application. Also, and mayb...

Great Audio out - Poor Mic

Phillip B., Newegg
3 February 2012
  • Summary: Other reviews of this device claim that they get great microphone performance, others seem to have the same experience as I do. I've experimented with different placement of the button (microphone is integrated into the button) and my wife still complains that she can't understand anything that I'm...
  • Pros: 1. Promising solution for those without OEM built in Bluetooth 2. Great audio clarity for music playback (as good as bluetooth can be) 3. Great audio clarity of other caller
  • Cons: 1. Poor Microphone performance (everyone complains that they can't hear me. 2. Doesn't auto-pair (you have to initiate pairing each time you return to the car by pressing the button)

Really wanted to like it

Scott A., Newegg
5 December 2011
  • Summary: This looked so cool. It was exactly what I wanted to make handsfree calls from my pocket, use Siri, and for GPS audio over my speakers. I have an iPhone 4s. I was gonna deal with it having to be manually paired each time, and with the music starting everytime you hook it back up (although I found...
  • Pros: small, discreet, simple, attractive, cool
  • Cons: horrible audio quality in both directions, difficult to time button presses properly
