Battery

Battery:
"Nice and tiny devices, quality sound it's the same as I have my earbud connected to my cellphone, it's very tiny and portable, the battery life is wonderful I haven't be able to draw the juice of it during a single day of use, call quality its standard."
_

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"Not so good at Hwy speeds which is true with most Bluetooth devices."
_
"I bought this bluetooth receiver hoping it would eliminate engine feedback noise from getting into my car speakers while charging my iphone but unfortunately the feedback is still sent through the bluetooth circuit as well as the headphone jack."
_
"Although many people might consider it inconvenient, the device's need to be turned on every time you enter the car is a great method to conserve battery life, as well as to keep the device hidden from other Bluetooth transmitters (e. g., smartphones, computers, and tablets)."
_
"Only problem I have with this product is when my phone first connects to the Bluetooth, the music skips around a little, but it goes away after maybe 5+ seconds."
_
"The mpow allows me to connect to my stereo with a terrible Bluetooth implementation, via the auxiliary input, simply and quickly."
_
"I used to hate bluetooth because of its horrible audio quality (I can't ignore it, I'm an audio engineer) however Bluetooth 4.0 sounds much better."
_
"I've only had it for about a week but the charge last a long time and the distance for Bluetooth connectivity is great."
_
"Pairing was easy as turning on the device and selecting it in my Bluetooth settings on my phone."
_
"Great bluetooth receiver."
_
"It is very intuitive and if you have ever used Bluetooth devices before you will have no problem figuring it out."
_
"The sound quality is exactly what I expected and as good as any other Bluetooth receiver."

Button

Button:
"The one button control is a little clunky now and again, but you cant complain for the price."
_
"The biggest drawback is the lack of a dedicated on off button."
_
"The device is small and very light - the size of a matchstick The buttons are small and a little hard to find on the side of the device without looking."
_
"It also needs an on off button...the one button functioning is terrible."
_
"It's clean, no cables, the Steambot is small enough that it doesn't block any of the Kenwood deck controls buttons nor is it annoying to have plugged directly in due to its small size."
_
"It's easy to setup and use requiring just a few button presses to operate."
_
"Side buttons are used for both volume change and track change (long press and short press respectively, I think) and the main button on the front is used for on off (long press) as well as play pause (short press)."
_
"The volume buttons are a nice addition."
_
"Connects and disconnects seamlessly and the play-pause button actually works."
_
"Only thing I would change about this device is perhaps a power switch instead of holding the play button for a good 3 seconds, but not a deal breaker by any means."

Cable

Cable:
"The quality is not that amazing, it is actually worse than plugging in an AUX cord."

_
"Occasionally the sound quality does degrade and it is not as good as using a physical headphone cord but it is still a very good product that I use all the time."
_
"The only thing that is a little annoying is that you have to charge it, so there is an extra cord that is plugged into the receiver, then plugs into a USB port somewhere in the car."
_
"Aux cables are annoying and this device sure does eliminate that annoyance."
_
"I think the music sounds better than any aux cord I've used before, nice and clear."
_
"This comes with standard mini USB charger cable, a 4' audio cable and a nice little audio adapter."
_
"Great little device, solved my stray cable issue of having to plug my iPhone into the AUX since my car has hands-free bluetooth but only for the phone functionality, not audio streaming."
_
"What Comes In The Box:(1) Mpow Streambot Mini Bluetooth 4.0 Receiver(1) 3.5mm Male to Male Auxiliary Cord(1) 3.5mm Male to Male Auxiliary Stub (allows no slack between the port and the device)(1) A USB to Micro-USBWhat I Liked:+ The device is small, allowing for easy portability (even with the auxiliary cable or stub).+ The device's sound quality is fantastic."

Connection

Connection:
"3 devices... checked all connections... all of the devices hiccup constantly."
_
"It also has problems connecting on occasion."
_
"For those with an older model phone and software, your cellphone Bluetooth may be an older version too which could cause connection problems."

_
"I attached it a couple different devices and was not able to get a connection."

Connector

Connector:
"I loved it but unfortunately the receiver separated from the jack."
_
"The metal connector part has broken twice now."
_
"My headphone jack was hard to use with a case on my iPhone 6."
_
"(Caveat ear and iPhone Jack quality)."
_
"Pros:- Good battery life (I use it about an hour a day and charge it maybe once a week).- Lightweight (I was worried it would pull out just hanging by the 3.5mm jack, but it works perfectly)- Great sound (though I mostly listen to spoken podcasts)- Plays a startup shutdown tone when powered on off and connected to the 3.5mm jack (which is great since it's hard to see the LED)- I DID NOT SEE THIS ADVERTISED OR MENTIONED ELSEWHERE: Automatically powers off if the paired phone goes out of range, which saves the battery life immensely since I'd forget to power it off occasionally otherwise."
_
"Mount it where it's easy to reach or use the included 3.5 mm connector and leave it stick out the front of your stereo; either way it works perfectly and sounds great."
_
"Excellent device to turn any thing with a headphone jack into a Bluetooth reciever"
_
"This works well if your car has a headphone sized input jack and no built in bluetooth."
_
"I bought this bluetooth receiver hoping it would eliminate engine feedback noise from getting into my car speakers while charging my iphone but unfortunately the feedback is still sent through the bluetooth circuit as well as the headphone jack."
_
"Makes connecting smartphone and other blue tooth enabled devices easy to electronics having only an audio Auxiliary input jack."

Console

Console:
"The microphone for speaking on the phone is okay, but not the best--this is mostly because it's stuck right on the console."
_
"On my 2011 Ford Fiesta, the 3.5mm jack sits in a recess of the central console under the tip of the parking brake, so I was a bit worried at first."
_
"I was a little worried that the sound may be bad, since my AUX jack is under the console armrest, but the sound quality is great!"
_
"EASY to Turn On: I simply reach into my center console, hit the Play Power button hold for 2 seconds and it turns right on."
_
"This thing sticks in my car's aux port in the mid console and works very well there."
_
"The size is right and fits neatly in the centre console of my car and the included cable works well to keep it charged."
_
"Small size makes it perfect for tucking away in the console."

Disconnect

Disconnect:
"Sound quality is pretty amazing, only downside so far is the device randomly shuts off and disconnects from my phone so it has to be turned back on and reconnected again but that does not happen more than once a day or so."
_
"One complaint with the implementation are that it turns off when you connect disconnect the power."
_
"You can charge while you use it, but if connection is the slightest bit weak, it will connect disconnect the charging when you bump it, which resets the connection."

Loud

Loud:
"One issue is that if it does not connect to my phone and I attempt to turn on the Receiver there is a loud, deep pop noise."
_
"I was getting a really loud, annoying pop sound in between songs."
_
"it was so loud and annoying."
_
"Then I bought this one which a friend recommended and it is good, I get audio from both sides, it has volume controls and it is loud, not perfect though I guess like every wireless set up, sometimes I get small cut offs or hiccups from the signal while listening to music, I had experienced that with other bluetooth headphones and headsets that I've used so I think that could be normal."
_
"Also, when hooking the Mpow up to headphones and turning it off and on with headphones in my ear, it would make a painfully loud beep when changing functions."
_
"Good for audiobooks but does not go nearly as loud as a direct wired connection."
_
"Connects fast; the music is loud and clear."
_
"Now loud and clear, I get both the audio and visual warnings."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Their voice comes over the speakers nice and clear, my voice uses the phone microphone, so it's not perfect, but for the price?"
_
"The microphone is a little weak but if you use the longer aux cable you can position it better."
_
"Only problem I have os that the microphone is far from my mouth so when I take calls people cants hear me."
_
"This is great for music, but the mic for phone calls is to weak."
_
"The microphone is not as good as as the Apple headphones - but is fine for quick calls - or answering a call while on the road."
_
"The microphone for speaking on the phone is okay, but not the best--this is mostly because it's stuck right on the console."
_
"The microphone picks up for phone calls well enough to be heard and switching between calls and music works well."
_
"Otherwise, the device works flawless, good mic and good reception."
_
"Easy to connect, great sound almost 5 stars if the mic was a little bit stronger."
_
"Once I realized this, I used the aux cable included in the kit and mounted the adapter in a location that is easy to access and the mic is pointed at me for clarity."
_
"It works pretty well for streaming, but the microphone on it is questionable."

_
"Crackling noise is unbearable."

Pairing

Pairing:
"I will say the pairing criticism is true, it takes several tries."
_
"Just to test if my phone, the LG G3 (which supports Bluetooth 4.0 and Apt-X) might be somehow at fault, I also paired it with my PC laptop (same Bluetooth support) and while the audio connection seemed somewhat stronger, it also skipped if pushed in range or obstruction and movement."
_
"Unfortunately after a few months of use it wont stay paired with my phone after the slightest of bumps, and seeing as I use this in my car those slight bumps are pretty much every few feet on the road."
_
"Unable to connect to blue tooth; attempted pairing with multiple devices"
_
"Pairing was easy as turning on the device and selecting it in my Bluetooth settings on my phone."
_
"Paired easily and great quality sound."

Power

Power:
"My only complaint, and reason for a star and not a 5, you have to hold the power button down for 5 seconds in order to power the devise."
_
"First, the TL DR version:Pros---Superbly long battery life (even above spec)-Excellent sound quality just about indistinguishable from wired headphones-Synchronizes video and audio well with videos, some games (not 3D)-Responsive controls and good focus on foreground app-Good phone function-Small form factor-Headphone customizability (basic design feature for those that want it)-Can be used while chargingCons---Warning tones on power out only happen just before depletion and are very quiet-Range not the best (line of sight obstruction issues with streaming smoothness)-No display at all-Bright flashing LED-Volume controls not the greatest-No clipOverall: 3.5 to 4 stars depending on what day it is and what Im doing with this gadget."
_
"The problem with this device is that if I am streaming music through it while having the power cable attached, I get a loud buzzing sound that over powers the music."
_
"My only complaint is the power on issue."
_
"Cons:- Hard to see the power LED when using the short 3.5mm jack to connect it."
_
"In my car, I leave it plugged into the supplied USB cable, and while there is some slight interference that can be noticed when there is no audio output, as soon as music starts playing, the sound of the device taking power is not noticeable.3) Easy to use."
_
"Works fine to stream audio to older devices that don't have bluetooth built in, alternative for cars as well but needs a power source."
_
"This little device is amazing clean clean clean power for all my headphones I'm running Sennheiser HD558, HD600, Audiotechnica ATH-M50x and M40x and they sound amazing I really don't hear a difference with the cable or this device and its small enough that will fit just about anywhere I also used it from full charge to the end of the battery charge for a grand total of 10hr constant music play I will definitely be buying a few more of this."
_
"PROS: I like the idea of this, love that it has its own battery so it doesn't have to constantly be connected to a power source, like that it uses micro USB to charge."
_
"Works great, I really do wish it would auto power on when power is sent to (car starts), only reason I took a star off."

Streaming

Streaming:
"My significant other complained that it was hard to hear me when making calls, but I got it for streaming music; and it does a wonderful job! "
_
"First, the TL DR version:Pros---Superbly long battery life (even above spec)-Excellent sound quality just about indistinguishable from wired headphones-Synchronizes video and audio well with videos, some games (not 3D)-Responsive controls and good focus on foreground app-Good phone function-Small form factor-Headphone customizability (basic design feature for those that want it)-Can be used while chargingCons---Warning tones on power out only happen just before depletion and are very quiet-Range not the best (line of sight obstruction issues with streaming smoothness)-No display at all-Bright flashing LED-Volume controls not the greatest-No clipOverall: 3.5 to 4 stars depending on what day it is and what Im doing with this gadget."
_
"The problem with this device is that if I am streaming music through it while having the power cable attached, I get a loud buzzing sound that over powers the music."
_
"The microphone picks up a lot of outside noise and isn't perfect, but the streaming quality and everything else works great! "
_
"I've tried it in a few of my family's cars as well as our's and they all have too much static with whatever we are streaming that you can't hear it well."
_
"This item works fine streaming music from a speaker but it does not work well to use as a hands free device to speak on the phone."
_
"This is probably a limitation of the technology rather than the device, but it would be perfect if I could set it to assume all audio streaming capabilities while leaving the car as top priority for phone."
_
"But using this plugged into my aux port makes streaming my music from my phone easy."
_
"I use this in my car for hands free calling and streaming music and it does a great job."

Voice

Voice:
"Their voice comes over the speakers nice and clear, my voice uses the phone microphone, so it's not perfect, but for the price?"

_
"The phone audio is extremely quiet compared to the music and the mic is not very good at picking up voice."

_

Wireless

Wireless:
"Then I bought this one which a friend recommended and it is good, I get audio from both sides, it has volume controls and it is loud, not perfect though I guess like every wireless set up, sometimes I get small cut offs or hiccups from the signal while listening to music, I had experienced that with other bluetooth headphones and headsets that I've used so I think that could be normal."
_
"I'm using it in my car in the auxiliary port to make my phone wireless and it works perfectly."
_
"I haven't tried this with my headphones, to make them wireless, but I expect the results will be exceptional."
