I bought this with high expectations based on all the positive audiophile reviews. It's a great-looking device and very simple to set up, but I was really unimpressed by the sound. It's true that it pushes a surprising amount of bass and handles dynamics well for a speaker of its size, but I found that mids and vocals were pushed way forward, and overall the sound is as tinny and fatiguing as portable speakers generally are.

It doesn't sound terrible by any means, but it also doesn't sound better than any number of much cheaper options. Unless you're really excited about the app interface and the possibility of multiroom play (I'm not), I don't see anything to justify the pricetag.

If you're concerned with sound quality, you're better off spending an extra $100 on basic bookshelf speakers. If you're not, you could just as easily spend $50 on a Chinese-made bluetooth speaker.

Refined music reproduction- very nice sounding speaker. Tight, impactful bass and sweet midrange. The treble is a little soft. Obviously, very little stereo separation, but the way it is used that is hardly an issue. Excels at jazz and acoustic music, however sound great with most of the stuff I listen to. Even stands up to my daughter hip-hop to a degree. Built like a tank. Easy to move from room to room, but not "portable". Great speaker for the money.

Great sound quality, good interface. Only downside is no battery so it has to be plugged in to operate

I like the sound from the T3 better but I like the convenience of wifi with the C5.

I have read many positive reviews including that of what hifiI before I placed my order. Setting up was like a breeze; however in my case there was only one issue: NO SOUND from the speaker!

I've done google search but have found little help on this issue. I have myself tried the below troubleshooting measures: 1) updated the Audio Pro app to its latest version (Firmware 3.7.5322), re-connected to home Wi Fi, opened up my Spotify premium account to play some music. While you can see the music is playing on Spotify, there is no sound coming out of the Addon C5 speaker. 2) I did what was suggested by one of the answers I received in this section, by holding down the Power Button but no beep sound was heard. 3) I tried to connect my iPhone to the speaker via Bluetooth as well as via AUX cable; connection is all good, yet still no sound from the speaker. 4) I repeated the restore to factory setting process a couple of times now; I noticed that I never heard any beeping sound when wifi connection was established. I wonder whether something is wrong here. Amazon has issued a return label for me to return the product. I would really like to make it work before I return it yet none has worked.

It's a pity that I have to return this to Amazon. This is the first ever return of order since I became an amazon member back in 2003.

I am very pleased with the sound, build quality, and look. Even more pleased with how easily they let me listen to Spotify and my music files. I had owned other Audio Pro speakers before so I expected them to be pretty nice. In person the C5s are smaller than I anticipated (they look like miniature PA speakers) but very nicely finished. I got the grey color with a brown leatherish handle.

The sound is very well balanced. Surprising amount of bass for its size, but not emphasizing bass over midrange or treble. It is a very smooth musical sound good on all kinds of music. It reminds me a lot of the B&W and KEF home speakers I have owned. I have used them with both the Android and IOS versions of the app and they work well. Easy to hook to Spotify, and you can program 4 Preset station buttons on the top of the speaker. This is great because unlike most Wi-Fi speakers, you do not have to grab your phone or tablet to start playing music. Very pleased.

Took me a little time to connect it to the WiFi network at home. After that, it works perfectly with iPhone airplay. The EQ brings the warm and clear sound to my bed room. The control is easy from the mobile app.
