Multiroom Wireless Airplay Speakers : Lovely speaker but beware the hidden “demons”

Amazing sound quality at an amazing price, really please with this purchase.

Multiroom, bluetooth, wifi, nfc and plenty more. Size vs quality, nothing can match for sure. In my opinion – if the speaker can make you believe what you are hearing, the job is almost done. 4000mah battery and usb out for charging coupled with plenty of connectivity options. I’ve been using this for past 7 days and so far worked brilliantly. The soundthis speaker sounds exactly you want to hear. No matter your musical tastes and genre is, whether you are a bashed or not – this speaker delivers the music. Quality of audio is clean and open, no colouring though slightly mid forward, lows and highs are just accurate.

Kindly given to me to review this is a portable bluetooth speaker that can also tap into streaming services thanks to it’s built in ability to log onto wifi networks. The ws300 is the larger sibling to the smaller ws150 and it shares many of the same looks. Along the top are control buttons, on the back is the power switch, aux in, usb in for charging the speaker and a usb out for using the speaker to charge your gadgets. The speaker can be used as a bluetooth speaker, streaming music directly from your mobile, but to really get the most of this you want to set it up on wifi. Setup is made very easy thanks to the august app. Note that if you have a problem connecting the speaker to your wifi network it might be because you phone is connected on the 5g wifi band and the speaker can only connect via the 2. Within the app you can see the current compatible streaming services, at the time of review that includes spotify, tidal, pandora, tunein, iheartradio and the ability to stream from your mobile, it doesn’t currently support include amazon music or apple music. Hopefully additional services can be added as the product matures.

A pair of august ms15 speakers and they were great value. This speaker moves up a division or. Already have a pair of august ms15 speakers and they were great value. This speaker moves up a division or two and gives a great rounded sound. I’m not great on the technicalities, but i know what i like and this is it. Will be buying another one soon.

Excellent budget multi-room setup. I took a gamble and bought 1 ws300 and 2 ws150’s having just read a few of the reviews. Due to a neat offer on amazon at the time, it only cost me £2 more than only buying two of the speakersi’ve long hankered after a sonos setup around the house, as friends with deeper pockets have impressed with the multi-room setups they have – but i’ve never been able to justify the cost of a clutch of sonos speakers. I have experimented with a cheap airplay speaker (tango air) and airplay bridges to connect existing speakers, but can only achieve a multi-room setup via a mac, not via ios devices. So i thought we’d give august’s new system a go. I plugged all three speakers in and turned them on out of the box, downloaded the august alink app and followed the on-screen instructions – within 5 mins i have a multi-room setup that allows me to play the same thing (at different volumes) in three rooms, pair two and have a different source on the third, or have three things in three rooms. The simple pleasure of having the same song playing in the bedroom, living room and kitchen as you walk around the house was exactly what i wanted and perfect for parties. A few points:- music source. Can play local media off mobile device very easily from within alink app.

Multiroom Wireless Airplay Speakers – August WS300 – 15W WiFi/ WiiMu / Bluetooth : Hi fellow amazonians :o)firstly, i ‘d like to point out that i did not get the speaker free via amazons vine program or from august themselves. Believe it or not, i bought this with my own hard earned cash and through much research and a bit of blind faith. . I did however get the speaker during one of amazons lightening deals for the brill price of £85. :o):o) i did find it strange that i had added this to my wishlist and the lightening deal came up a couple of days later. . But i for one am not complaining and am certainly more then happy with my purchase :o)firstly i’d like to get the the bits that i’m not too endeared with out the way first. 1) the finish / build could be a lot better, as the inputs on the back aren’t finished off that well, and the rubber top and bottom are not as flush with the light grey metal surround. Regardless of price, i would expect nothing less then perfection. I know a lot of speakers don’t have cases, but one would have been nice – if anyone from august of fellow customers can advise then that would be great. 3) august alink, which is the app you should look for in the playstore (incorrect app name given in the supplied manual – as pointed out in another review too) in order to control the wifi / multi-room features could certainly have a more friendly and functional ui, especially where playing content stored on your phone / tablet is concerned. I would love the developers to take the best ui features from my note 4 music player and black music player, as well as the sound quality of neutron music player. 4) i would also like to see existing playlists imported to the alink app, and also for the app to have a built in eq, so that one can tinker with the sound stage to their liking – if there is one, and i am missing trick then please again, do let me know.

Crisp clear and i can listen to iheart radio ♡♡. Have linked up with another august speaker and i am over the moon with the crisp clear sound. The speakers are in separate rooms so i can hear around the house without any worries or issues.

Works with your windows pc’s too. This wifi speaker sounds excellent. I’ve tried it on bluetooth, aux in and wifi using my hudl tablet without problem. 0 pc to stream to it was problemenatic (i was not even sure it would work with windows media player) but it did eventually after trying a few things. After setting up streaming on wmp wiimu player appeared and allowed streaming to ws300. My only critisism is that the manual is so small it is difficult to read. And it didn’t help me streaming from my windows pcs. But works over all sources now and sounds great. It is worth charging unit before setting up as my battery was very low.

Great sound, easy set up, works seamlessly with airplay. . I’d wanted a wifi speaker for a while and have kept an eye on the market, when these came out i watched the reviews and nothing else seemed to come close in terms of value and reviews. Finally got around to buying one and am very impressed. First impressions out of the box were good, the unit was a nice weight and tactile. The black parts are slightly rubbery feeling and the buttons have a nice click to them. The ‘click’ area is smaller than the engraved areas for each button – that is the only very minor issue on the feel, once you know where to click it’s no problem. There is also a usb charge lead and a mini jack connector lead. The box doesn’t include a mains plug, no biggy as usb plugs are only a couple of pounds on ebay. Set up with the app was super easy, the manual even has a qr code straight to app download. I followed the set up steps – which is basically entering your wifi password and choosing a name for the speaker – and i was done.

Buy far great speakers they hold there charge easy charge great sound and perfect for traveling you just connect via bluetooth or wifi plus i have the big speaker and small the small speaker and together awesome sound.

Great sounding wifi speaker with loads of bottom end, even at low volume. . I am very pleased with this purchase. Easy to set up and running, the bluetooth connectivity was painless, but the real point is the excellent sound. The speaker feels substantial, and even at low volumes it displays a really satisfying level of bottom end. I tried playing a variety of music, old and new, ranging from sonny rollins, the beatles, bert jansch, bob dylan, howlin’ wolf, slim harpo, the who, the kinks, the move, blue oyster cult, johnny winter, the monkees, gregorian chants and the velvet underground. It all sounded great, and although i haven’t yet pushed the volume whilst i ‘play it in’, i am sure that it will handle that, too. I am so thrilled with the purchase, that i think i’ll buy another to make it stereo.

Solid sound but a bit annoying. The stiff sliding switch on the back might be good for travel, but it makes it harder to turn on and off in everyday use. Annoyingly, it doesn’t remember the volume from the previous use. Connects well and good sound.

August sent me this wi-fi speaker for review, and i think it’s absolutely excellent. It looks good, it works really well and the sound is terrific. I’ll start with the sound, because if you’re paying this much for a speaker (it costs a hundred quid at the time of writing) you expect very good sound – and you’ll get it. It’s important to break in the speaker with at least an hour’s playing at low volume (i played it for three hours before trying anything louder) and after that it’s really, really good. It’s beautifully balanced with crystal clear tops and middles and a very firm but not over-dominant bass. It responds very well to eq adjustment, too. I have played a lot of music through this now, from 16th-century choral music to beaty, bassy modern stuff with most things in between and it all sounds really good. In classical music, individual instruments and voices are clear and excellently articulated, rock has a terrific punch and the deep bass in things like london grammar’s hey now is all there. In short, i’m delighted with the sound.

One of these on special offer and was so pleased with it that i bought a second one. I bought one of these on special offer and was so pleased with it that i bought a second one. I had some difficulties setting it up but got extremely quick (and helpful) responses from the manufacturer. The sound is good – probably as good as is possible from relatively small speakers. I have two small criticisms. First, the manual could give more detail to obviate the problems i encountered. Secondly, as i have seen pointed out in other reviews, there should be a timeout so it turns itself off after a specified time of receiving no music.

Lovely speaker but beware the hidden ‘demons’. Love the speaker; quality good; attractive unit; could be a tad more powerful but more than adequate for our needs. Downside is the relationship between the speaker and the app – the speaker ‘broadcasts’ across 9 of the 13 available channels in the 2. 4ghz spectrum, which can (and does in this house) cause all kinds of complications. Have spoken to august and it is not possible to turn this function off which is a real shame and i will have to return both these speakers. I basically need an attractive airplay speaker that plays music and not something that blocks out the very few channels available to me.

Crystal clear sound – easy to set up. . The speaker arrives well packaged and there are details on the front of the box of what this speaker is capable of. Inside you also receive a usb cable, audio cable and a user manual. It is suggested you charge the speaker fully before first use with the provided usb cable to a powered usb port, a full charge can take up to 7 hours. Whilst the speaker is charging this will give you time to download the app ‘aug alink’ either from google play if you own an android device or if you have an iphone from the apple store. Enable wifi on your device and connect to your network. Switch on the speaker and after only 20 seconds the speaker will enter wifi mode with the lights of the speaker letting you know what stage the speaker is at. Using the app on your chosen device, whether that would be a phone or tablet, you can now proceed to run the application and press ‘wifi setup wizard/add device’. The wizard will glide you through the setup stages with ease and if you want to add another device to the list like the other model speaker you can do this by repeating the steps, the setup wizard takes you through. That is not all the speakers can do, other benefits are:you can connect your phone or tablet directly to the speakers wifi network which then will turn your speaker into a router.
