What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is an open communication standard that was originally developed to replace certain network cables. It has developed from there to become one of the most dynamic and flexible systems ever to be used by the audio industry. Bluetooth has developed over the last few years into a very capable method of delivering audio wirelessly and with the addition of the Apt-X encoding now has the ability to transmit lossless audio. Please note that Apt-X requires a compatible Apt-X capable partnering device.
As well as being a useful means of sending audio wirelessly, Bluetooth is a key component of being able to use devices hands free. To this end, the BT2 has been equipped with the ability to help you receive phone calls whilst your device is connected to it. We feel that the key to the enjoyment of our products is down to their accessibility and the BT2 has been designed with this in mind.
There is no reason why superb audio performance cannot be accompanied by real world convenience. To help deliver this, the BT2 uses a pair of passive bass radiators at either end of the speaker to augment the bass response instead of a more conventional bass port. This means that the BT2 is completely self contained and unaffected by proximity to walls or the surfaces it is placed on. It also means that the BT2 is capable of producing deep, clean impactful bass despite its small size. The BT2 is fitted with an internal battery that allows you to use it away from a source of mains power. The life of the battery will depend largely on how you use the BT2, with around twenty hours used at half volume via Bluetooth to over forty hours possible when used a low levels with the aux input. The charge time from flat is two hours and thirty minutes.
