3.0 out of 5 stars For portable stereo yes / for car no, June 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good to connect phone music to a speaker that Does not have Bluetooth. Quality is as good as the speaker it's connected to is good
I do not like it as a Bluetooth for my phone and car. Does not connect to Siri. Volume is extremely low for calls. I would say it's only good for receiving calls definitely not for outgoing calls while you're driving It's not hands-free for the driver. Only for answering a call

i bought this about a year ago, was happy with it, amazed in fact. Obviously my iPhone Earpodscould could be untethered from my phone for calls and music. But it was an unintended and cheap fix to my biggest frustration: no bluetooth in my car that was quickly solved with an aux cable. Amazing!! Until the bluetooth quality inexplicably deteriorated. Badly. My music sounds tinny, disjointed, no bass - horrible. I have an iPhone 6+ and have just tested the sound from a Samsung Galaxy phone (pre-explosion haha) - same thing.

I had those expectations because soon after buying the Bean, i received a truly well-written, seemingly heartfelt email from Antec asking for, amongst other things, any feedback about my experience, which i thought promised great service and showed that they cared about their amazing product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for those seeking hands free calling, July 9, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We bought two of these since our cars did not come with bluetooth. They work great for hands-free callling. The smartbean plugs into the auxiliary ports on our cars and then we clip the smartbean to our seat belts to ensure that the mic picks us up well while speaking. So far everyone has said we are coming through loud and clear. For the price, you definitely can't beat the bean. I would definitely purchase this again.
