Spracht AURA BluNote Bluetooth Speaker
I wouldn’t say that Bluetooth is all the rage, but it certainly allows a lot of things to be done a lot easier. If you have once of those Bluetooth headsets, such as the new i.VoicePRO, you can make and receive telephone calls.
The Spracht AURA BluNote is a Blutooth speaker that can stream music or any other audio files from a Bluetooth compatible device, such as a mobile phone, PDA, iPod, MP3/MP4 player, portable game console, as well as PCs and Macs, so you can hear your audio from your favorite mobile device without headphones.
I got a chance to try it out, and it paired with my mobile phone quite easily. From there, I was able to play my music and other audio files wirelessly. It has Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) for high fidelity wireless audio reception. In fact, it really is quite thin, and designed to fit in well on a desktop.
Not only is this thing very thin and works well, I was surprised at the quality of sound considering the unit and the speakers themselves are relatively small, The volume control was good enough for turning it up quite loud, and there were several buttons on the top of the unit to make the audio sound even better. One of them was the Bass Boost, which was capable of providing a little more “boom” than your average speakers of their type. It also had a stereo widening feature for a “three-dimensional soundscape”. I really don’t have any ideas how these audio improvements work, but they did work.
Not only are you able to project your tunes, but you can make or receive phone calls. In many ways, it is like the Spracht Aura Mobile BT. By the way, there is an included wire so that a non Bluetooth compatible device can be connected to it for wired speaker action. All you need to do is use the wire with a 3.5 mm headphone jack on your device, and link it with the BluNote.
As for the power, The BluNote uses four AA batteries, but it can also run on AC power if you have a spare outlet handy. By the way, I was surprised to find out that these batteries were included.
The BluNote can also store up to eight Bluetooth profiles so it can be paired with multiple devices. This means that more than one can use it, but I’m not certain how it decides which one to use first.
You should be able to purchase the Spracht AURA BluNote Bluetooth Speaker from the Spracht site for about $99.99.
