It was recorded on Consumer Barometer that 48% of smartphone internet users use their smartphones to play music and there are over 169 million users, both free and paid - worldwide across major music services such as SPOTIFY; DEEZER; and KKBOX just to name a few.. These numbers are still growing widely!


Connection for pairing is really fast and easy via Bluetooth! Reconnection is no needed because this smart audio adapter automatically re-pair once your device's Bluetooth is switched on!


I got a set of the Logitech® Bluetooth® Audio Adapter home and this is how it looks like.. (Unboxing, tried and tested!)

Beautiful design and performance. I have been using it since the day i got it like its part of my everyday lifestyle gadget.. Connected it to my home speaker and any members in the house can pair their smartphones with it and start playing their favourite playlist!

No issue on the Bluetooth wireless paired range at the comfort of my own home since i stay in a HDB unit.. I am able to change song tracks in the kitchen when dining with my family while my speaker being placed in my room (in between another room and our living room). That is pretty awesome and convenient for me!! =)

To switch between paired devices, simply "pause" or "stop" the stream from the active device then "play" to stream from the standby device.

For those who go on hotel stay where ipod dock speaker is commonly seen.. This super lightweight little Bluetooth Audio Adapter will come in handy for non-ipod users!


I will continue to share other Logitech's products in my next post.. so stay with me alright?!

Ending this post with a group shot taken at Logitech's office! Feeling really thankful to have meet them.. =)
