Love it. Already had 2 of the cords to plug it into my aux port in my car, so that was no problem. Keeps me from having to disconnect and reconnect my cell when exiting the car. I liked it so much, I bought 2 more (3 in total), one more to keep in my purse for my earbuds and one for a friend. Thanks Groupon. Thanks for keeping this survey brief and to the point! It was briefer than my comment! LOL

The receiver works perfectly and the sound quality is great through my car stereo. I use it in my car to play Pandora radio and answer hands free calls from my iPhone. Only wish that it came with an Aux cable-had to buy it seperately.

great for a whole lot of "wish I had bluetooth" moments. it has a few issues with the interface, like powering off and sliping off early will redial the last person you called on a phone, that is awkward I tell ya...
but other than that I use it for cutting the grass headphones, in a 99 f150, walking, working out sometimes, it is very handy device.
The only somewhat negative comment that I have to say is that the picture that is used to market the Bluetooth receiver is showing that it is plugged into the Aux input on the dash of a car. When I purchased the Bluetooth receiver, it did not come with the part that plugs into the dash. I had to buy that part separately from somewhere else. I was very disappointed with that.But the product overall is AWESOME!!! I love it. It works better than I thought it would and I actually just bought another one. THANKS!
I cannot get this thing to work with my 2011 Audi Q5. I know my vehicle does not have Audi MMI which is needed to connect to Bluetooth or something like that - I though I would chance this but no such luck. So yet another device I wasted $$ on that will not work for me - I just don't get why Audi was so far behind the Bluetooth technology wave? Jeesh.
On audio calls the volume is really low...you will have to crank up the volume on your radio to have a decent conversation. Post conversation, if you have music playing in the background it comes in at the high volume that you set for the phone conversation. you will have to decrease the volume so that the radio is not blaring at you the loud music...Hope someone can tell me how to take care of this...other then that the unit is absolute perfect with excellent phone conversation and music playback via bluetooth.
Had for awhile now. The Smartbean works good in the car, the mic is a little touchy, but overall it works well for music streaming. It works really well at home streaming from our laptops to our home theater system. Now that they include the adapter with the Smartbean, its super easy to connect it to almost any device for the price.
I use this with a pair of noise reduction headphones that I wear while working with power tools and at my desk at work to listen to music. The Bluetooth is great because I don't have a wire from my phone to the headphones to get in the way. I have the receiver turned on almost all day and the battery lasts about a day and a half, and it only takes about 2 hours to charge it back up. So, for the money, this is a great product.
I had bought this last time the deal was available. I use it on my 2009 Lexus, which does not have a bluetooth streaming or a USB adapter. I use it my cassette aux cable, and it works like a charm. You just have to start turn it on manually everytime you start the car. Other than that, it is pairs instantaneously. Has a good battery life. I love it so far
1) Shots down itself after serpent amount of inactivity - great battery preserving feature2) Nice to have audio controls - now I don't have to press anything on my iPhone, which is difficult to do while driving3) Automatically reconnects when iPhone in range of Bluetooth receiver4) Love the clipper on the back - easy to attach to shirt or any other surface5) Very good range - I think you can step more then 30 feet away from receiver6) Good looking design
