Auvio Expandable Bluetooth Speaker

Auvio Expandable Bluetooth Speaker

speaker 1 with cords

Portable speakers are so convenient, but wireless Bluetooth speakers are even better!  I wanted to get this speaker for my husband to review.  He is always on the go and I thought a portable speaker for his iPhone would come in handy.  I know basically nothing about Bluetooth and even less about iPhones, so here’s what he had to say about the Auvio Expanding Bluetooth Speaker:

This speaker works great!  Good for when you need music but don’t have speakers available or can’t plug in.

speaker 2 bluetooth closed

It was really easy to set up the Bluetooth function & I had music going quickly. When the Bluetooth is searching, a little light on the speaker flashes red and blue.  When it has made a connection, it lights up only blue with no blinking.  The wireless Bluetooth function works well within about 10-12 feet.  I can adjust sound, change songs, etc. all from my iPhone 4S.  It did start to skip a little if I got too far away from the speaker, but most of the time I’m within a few feet of it, so it’s not an issue.

speaker 3 bluetooth open

The volume is great…much louder than I expected.  It works much better than the desktop speakers we have for our computer.  I’m really impressed!  The “expandable” feature refers to how it can expand to enhance the sound. I didn’t see a huge difference, but it does sound a bit better with the speaker “open/expanded”.  The speaker works with it either expanded or not.

speaker 4 with apple

The speaker is about the size and weight of an apple, so it makes it easy to pack in a bag or purse.  You can take this speaker just about anyplace.  I look forward to trying it outdoors next summer.  It would be perfect for picnics, the park or a lake.

The only issue I found was when I plugged it into our home computer, there was some static while moving the speaker around. Once it was set, it sounded great.  I have no other complaints & I highly recommend this speaker.
