It’s tiny enough to go on trips with me and my iPhone, and will work great in rental cars. For a cord-cutting solution, the AirBlue comes with a lot of little cables below. However Don’t take my review the wrong way, the Kanex Bluetooth audio receiver is definitely a nice gadget! Like most devices which are not directly wired to radios or any device it gives a very small hiss sound but depends also on quality of speakers in vehicle. Rated 3 out of 5 by Nowcap50 from Works well, Battery doesn’t last as long Use this to Internet radio from the iPad to a nice old portable radio with a line input. Conclusion There are a lot of similar solutions available for Bluetooth connections to speakers.

By this time, I had already previously purchased a second AirBlue as a spare. Rated 5 out of 5 by creedski from Works as advertised I bought this primarily for the car to stream from an Andriod phone but also use it to stream to home stereo – from the phone and from the built-in BT on my notebook.
Charging the AirBlue will take about 4 – 5 hours, and once it is fully charged it will work for up to 20 hours. I guess, this is good feature.
Though it has a USB power which my car does aieblue if your vehicle bluetoohh you can look online or stores and find a port which connects to a cigarette lighter with the USB port, example like some aftermarket chargers for iPhones. I was well over 70 feet away before the signal actually dropped, and could easily stand 60 feet away and still hear the music playing.
Sometimes my phone and Airblue wouldn’t connect properly, so I have to reconnect them again to receive proper sound.
bluetoot Wired will always sound better than wireless regardless. It’s also not worth the trouble and shipping cost of returning it. I use this in my car all the time.
Probably due to audio compression during transmission. Audio quality is good, if not great.
I’ll stick to hard-wire connections for the foreseeable future. The Kanex AirBlue Portable Bluetooth Music Receiver is b,uetooth portable music receiver that lets you wirelessly play, listen and control media from your Apple iPod touch, iPhone or MP3 player or any other Bluetooth-enabled device through your home stereo or speakers from up to 33 feet away. I think I made the right choice.
The sound is excellent paired with my iphone and the pairing was painless. For some, the construct might feel a bit plasticky, but for me it is just fine, because I don’t hold it in hands anyways.
The receiver does everything it says it does. It also wigged out a bit with multiple devices. I use expensive Shure headphones to listen to my iTunes while walking maybe three or four times a week.
Just to check the range of the Airnlue connection — advertised as 30 feet — I opened the doors on the car, grabbed the iPhone, and started walking away from the car. With a single tap, the iPhone and AirBlue were paired.
I may buy two more units. When the Airblue is full of power, you can then take the little 2″ diameter flat black disc and plug one of the included cables into it — a standard 3.
This first AirBlue delivered robust volume and made it easier to handle my phone. Sound quality is acceptable bluetotoh though most everything I’ve listened to it through are stock car HUs or my bookshelf stereo.
Months later however, the female jack also broke and cannot be used anymore. There are a lot of similar solutions available for Bluetooth connections to speakers.
DSP Co-Processor – 16 and bit run time. Pairing the unit is ariblue quite easy.
Rather than use the standard 3. Airbkue center in the top of the disc is a small button with a built-in blue LED light. I’d say it may run 3 hours on a charge, not the 20 hours stated in some of the products’ previous write ups. It was painful to listen to, and I gave up after several tries. Two audio cables are included that should cover most applications.
