I love the sound, I have two of the HEOS 1. But frequently I have problems with connection thru wifi. I frequently turn off the app, sometimes need to delete and download the app again.

really bad speaker for the price

If your going to use this as a blue tooth speaker stay far far away. Connects when it wants to. Sound is sub par. Not at all impressed. Have really nice Denon receiver and Blu Ray player thought I couldn't go wrong with the Denon name boy was I wrong.

Must stay plugged in!

We have an entire housewife Heos system, three sound bars, three bass, one portable speaker. Sounds are great. We love that we can group everything together so that when we entertain, every location is playing the same music if we wish. Or, each can be separate. The portable speaker has, in my opinion, a significant limitation. In order to get the maximum hours of portable use, the speaker has to remain plugged in full time. The battery drains considerably when not plugged in, even when the speaker is “off”. none of my other portables (Bose, for instance) have this limitation - though it is important to know that the Bose cannot be on the same network as my indoor Heos system. If the portable speaker is unplugged for four days, the speaker is no longer portable - the battery is dead and you have to plug it in to use it. I’m dissatisfied with that fact. Indoor, rates a 5. Portable rates a 2 for short battery life and constant battery draining. Overall, our system is a three. We use the portable outside on our deck a great deal. We have to keep it plugged in permanently in order to do so. That’s a hassle for us. Hard to justify that technology in 2018. Soundbar and bass are top notch, we love it. We deal with the portable. (For reference, my Bose Bluetooth - no networking! - has a battery that will stay charged for as long as a month between uses. You may wish to avoid the portable and use Pandora or Spotify off your phone for outdoor use. Would recommend indoor system fully.

Best sound across the board

I now have all the Heos products (1, 3, 5, 7, soundbar) with the Heos 1 being the latest addition. I have also spent a significant amount of time listening to other "portable" and wireless speakers and the Heos speakers BY FAR put out the best sound. Deeper bass, noticeable mid-range and clear highs. With most speakers at least one of those is missing. The Heos 1 looks good and I recently traveled to Aruba with it in a backpack. Well worth the price and again best quality on the market IMO.

Interesting solution, but I'm not convinced

I have two HEOS 1 HS2 speakers. I've bought them for the bathroom, as other HEOS speakers are not suitable for humid places. Being the smallest speaker in the HEOS family, it has some downsides. Regardless of its size, I expected a much better sound. My first HEOS speaker was no. 7 and it's outstanding how it fills the room. No 1 has a metallic sound and although I have placed two in a bathroom (left and right), the sound still doesn't meet my expectations. Trebles are fine but have a narrow-angle. Moving speakers to other rooms does not change the sound. Now the good things: - Installation was a bit unusual, but it did work. To set up two speakers in a stereo mode with the app was easier than expected. - Led light is dimmable and I find it very cool. - I connected my phone using bluetooth to HEOS 7. This way I am able to listen on HEOS system ANY sound from my phone, may that be a YouTube or any other app. I usually have all rooms connected (that's very easy to change in the HEOS app) and it means the same sound in all rooms. HEOS system is great as it allows connecting existing speakers to HEOS AVR system (7.2 in my case in the living room). - When a computer is in the same WiFi network, I can send any mp3 file to any HEOS speaker in my appartment by selecting "cast to". It works very well, but I wish it would work with apps as well. I have to convert YouTube songs to mp3 in order to save them to disk to be able to play them on HEOS. I wish DENON would finally solve this issue! What worries me: - When using a splashguard (from Go-Pack) you can't charge the speakers on a cable. I am worried if using them without the splashguard is suitable for a bathroom use. - With new updates I have had some difficulties finding speakers not working in the morning for example. I would expect that updates don't affect my listening.

Works as advertised

This speaker only connects via Bluetooth when it wants to- and it rarely wants to. Super frustrating- it worked yesterday and today it’s like, nah, I’m tired.
