Philips Fidelio SoundRing wireless speaker with AirPlay
I'm David Carnoy executive editor for cnet.com. And I'm here with the Philips -- -- you sound ring.
This is an airplay speaker that means you can stream music to it from any.
IOS device or any computer that has iTunes.
It is non compressed music is not like Bluetooth so -- an airplay speaker and you can see it has a really interesting design this -- shaped design.
On it sits in a little -- here that's because the dock actually charges the sound rating it has a built in rechargeable battery.
Object gives you about three hours of battery life -- can move the speaker around your house recharge it.
Around back there is an auxiliary input.
If you want to -- attach an audio guys with a cable that's the non wireless version.
And there's also a USB port.
That allows you to charge your phone.
Using a cable course actually -- pretty low expectations for the speakers because it is kind of small.
And it really did exceed my expectations in terms of sound quality.
-- it does have.
Nice clear sound bigger bass than I thought it would have on and it's just a better sounding speaker that I thought it would be.
-- it's really one of the better smaller airplay speakers we tested.
On the one drawback of course is -- place because tend to be expensive this one retails for around 300 dollars a slow pricey you can't get it for a little bit less than that.
Apart from now my only other gripe with I did -- a little bit of problem setting it up as an airplay speaker.
And then manual isn't all that -- is just kind of confusing once I didn't get it set up.
Oddly it actually worked pretty well I if you drop -- occasionally.
Com and it is -- -- -- to see how you do firmware upgrade but aside from those factors.
This is a really nicely designed product it also sounds better then you probably think it will look and -- a small to medium sized room with sound.
And that's really about it that is the Philips.
It -- Leo -- -- with airplay. Update conflict thanks for watching.
