sounds pretty good Cons Review by billy
Quality

Bought a couple of these for old 30-pin iPod docks I have kicking around the house and office. This model works okay, but it has its drawbacks: Pros: - aux cable and built-in battery - this allows you to use this for bluetooth audio even without a 30-pin dock; I've used this in rental cars to play music/podcasts via an AUX input - BT audio works, sounds pretty good Cons: - power button is a little difficult to use by feel/without looking at the unit; I typically have to pick up the receiver to operate it - re-pairing can be oddly difficult sometimes; if I allow the unit to go to sleep, it often takes several tries to re-establish the connection; this happens with several different devices (several phones, PC), so I'm pretty confident that the MR240 is where the issue lies; not fatal, but can be very annoying Overall, this unit does what I need it to do for fairly cheap. The added versatility provided by the AUX cable and battery is nice, but the user experience is a little harder than it needs to be. (Posted on 25/05/2015)
Won't work with iPod/iPhone dock. Review by JON D RANSOM
Quality

Price
Junk. Managed to get it to play in my iPod/iPhone dock twice in two hours of fiddling. Couldn't get it to work other 50+ attempts. Contacted company through their website (per manual) and they suggested checking the stereo plug to see if that works. Check. 30-pin must be bad. Returned the first unit. Received the second today. No joy. Works on stereo plug but not 30-pin. Good concept. Terrible execution. Either it's bad design or unacceptable quality control. I'll find something else. (Posted on 17/11/2014)
Good Audio Quality, Great Range, Easy to Use, Ipod Port Incompatible with Griffin Amplifi 2.1. Review by DJ E.
Quality

Sending music to my stereo wirelessly from my iphone 4s is fantastic. I highly recommend this product considering it is so cheap and easy to use. The audio quality is good and the range is surprisingly great. I'm able to go up and down stairs and around corners with almost no cut out, and when it does cut out, a simple step back brings the signal back instantly. I was worried that I'd be re-syncing the thing every time I moved too far away - not the case at all. Setup was easy and took only about one minute. The power/sync button is tiny and seems delicate so I'll knock half a star off for that. The other half star is lost because the ipod port is incompatible with my stereo - an old Griffin Amplifi 2.1 ipod stereo. It's unclear if the receiver can charge from the stereo's ipod port, but it definitely can't send audio through it. Fortunately the receiver has a built in male 3.5mm cord so I can just plug the receiver into the aux-in of the stereo and it works fine that way. I'll just have to charge the receiver separately. (I haven't used the receiver long enough to test the battery life of it.) (Posted on 21/07/2014)
No bass Review by Jason wang

No bass at all. Connected it to my sound system, highs is very clear, mid is not bad but no bass. My sound system includes a pair of big JBL speakers (N90) , so I think bass should come out from them easly. (Posted on 23/02/2014)
Had to figure it out but works great Review by Ivy

Had to figure it out but works great. When I received this device I initial had problems re-syncing, and could only move a few feet away from it before the sound started to break up. I then realized I was running so many apps in the background of my iPhone 4 that it was effecting my signal strength. After closing several running apps that I rarely use, I was suddenly able to go anywhere in my 1400 sqft town-home without losing any sound quality. As far a re-syncing, I found if I manually put the device to sleep, (hold side button for about 7 secs, blue light will flash, and speakers will sound one descending tone), when I was done with it, all I had to do to re-sync was to wake the device, (hold side button for about 3 secs, light will flash blue once, speakers will sound one ascending tone). Once I've woken the device it finds and connects to my phone on its own. I don't have to go into my phone settings or even turn on my phone. This device finds it and does all the work. Works every time. So here's my breakdown: - works on my skullcandy pipe, skullcandy super pipe, and an old logic 3 speaker set I bought for the original shuffle - on the skullcandy devices the August MR240 sits and charges on the 30 pin dock - on the old logic 3, the MR240 plugs into the devices using its 3.5 mm plug and runs on its internal battery - the light on the devices shuts off after sync, (no annoying blinking) - since it has a button it never needs to be removed from your speakers to re-sync (most other devices require you to remove, then reattach them to your speakers to re-sync) - easy to answer phone calls ( if a call comes in just tap the button on the side of the device), it will use your speakers to broadcast the incoming sound and has a mic to transmit your sound back to them. - after clearing my phone a bit, range was about 35 feet, plus could go upstairs into any of our rooms with device downstairs in kitchen - pairs to multiple devices, (it can only do one device at a time, so to change to a deferent device you need to disconnect it from the device it's currently connected with, then it's open for any other device you want) - sound quality is very clear - when it finds my phone or iPad mini and connects with it, it puts a little battery icon on my devices display, just next to the BT symbol at the top, & shows me how much charge the receivers internal battery has. Very happy and highly recommend the August MR240 to anyone looking for a 30 pin, or 3.5mm Bluetooth receiver (Posted on 05/12/2013)

Very good BUT...if watching video, there is a delay. It's small, but noticeable. It seems to lag about one-third to one-half of a second. (Posted on 21/11/2013)
Great Little Gadget Review by dkpbone
Quality

I, like the other reviewers purchased this to use with all my old 30 pin speaker docs and it works great. My car has Bluetooth, so I do not plan on using it in that application. However, while sitting listening to my radio programs or music, I can see that it will come in handy for voice calls as I usually am sitting right next to my speakers on the couch. I have dialed out on the phone and the voice mail I reached came in loud and clear through the speakers. I don't notice any difference in sound from the speakers using this little jewel as when it was actually used with my iPhone docked. Very pleased. I do want to make mention for those having trouble with their device finding the MR240B. You have to make sure the MR240B is in pairing mode and the little manual provided with the unit fails to mention how to do it. But all you have to do is hold the power button down long enough for the LED to flash red and then blue. After testing the microphone quality, I plan on picking up a couple more of these as gifts for friends/relatives who don't have bluetooth in their car. But for use around the home with all your old speakers, I highly recommend this product. (Posted on 13/11/2013)
Clever, Small and Convenient Review by Dr. Bojan Tunguz
Quality

This is one of the more ingenious Bluetooth receivers that I've tested. It allows you to turn any of your older audio systems into a receiver for your smartphone music. It also features the old Apple 30-pin connector, which makes it as an ideal bridge between your older i-devices and the specialized music equipment for them. The receiver is very easy to pair – just plug it in and connect to it from your smartphone’s settings menu. I’ve been able to connect to it with an iPhone and an Android phone. The receiver comes with a regular phones jack cable as well as a component audio cable. It should in principle be able to connect to any regular audio system. The sound quality will depend on several factors, including the bit encoding of the music that you listen to and the quality of the speakers that you use. One of the big limiting factors will be the Bluetooth connectivity. No Bluetooth receiver/streamer will be able to transmit the highest encoded music files, so if you are a persnickety audiophile this might not be the way for you to enjoy your music. For everyone else, however, this receiver will be more than adequate. (Posted on 29/10/2013)
Great for the price, requires some user interaction Review by J. Pappan
Quality

I purchased this to interface between my iPhone 5s (Bluetooth) and my Ford Expedition (aux 3.5mm headphone jack). Although the unit is designed for older docks using the 30-pin connector, I had a different plan. Ideally, I would plug the 3.5mm headphone jack into the line-in plug on my truck, and power the adapter using a 30-pin car charger for my old iPhone 4... Everything worked. I have the power adapter plugged in around the clock, and the 3.5mm jack going into the line-in. I wired it up so it looks okay and is fairly permanent. I never need to charge the adapter. When I get in and start the car, the Bluetooth adapter needs to be turned on. Even with power, it will eventually turn off if there's no signal. My cigarette lighter has power all the time, with or without a key in the car. Once it's on, it will auto pair with the phone. Then you need to start the music. When exiting, I just walk away and if I go far enough, it will automatically disconnect. If I stay within range, the phone will continue to send Bluetooth audio to the phone, whether plugged in or not.. so at home I have a indoor garage and I am required to turn the music off on the phone, or turn the Bluetooth off in the car. So, some interface required, but overall better than messing with cables. (Posted on 28/10/2013)
Great little device to make any 30-pin or aux port Bluetooth Review by Zachary S. *Tech Reviewer*
Quality

The August Bluetooth Receiver for 30-pin iDevice music player docks or aux inputs is a must have for those with Lightning port devices like the iPhone 5 or want to make an aux input bluetooth. This Bluetooth receiver is extremely easy to setup. All you do is plug the receiver in and pair your device/ turn it on if you are the aux feature. Then you start playing audio. That's it! The receiver uses Bluetooth 3.0 and I got about 30ft of range before it started to skip parts of the audio. I really like this very small and portable Bluetooth receiver. I have the iLuv Vibro I Bed Shaker 30-Pin iPod/iPhone Alarm Clock that has been sitting in my closet for 6 months with almost no use because I got an iPhone 5 and an iPod touch 5 to replace my old iPod touch 2 that does not work anymore. Now I got the August Bluetooth Receiver to make the alarm clock usable again! I have used it with my iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5. This is also great for those who have an iPad so you can play music on the alarm clock wirelessly and not have to buy an iPad alarm clock to your music. The sound is not distorted in any way and sound great if you have a good speaker to play the sound. This was a great idea to make and it worked great. Overall, this is a highly recommended and is a must have for those with 30-pin alarm clocks that are not used because your device is not compatible with it. Watch my video review. I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation, and I promised that my review is fair and honest. (Posted on 13/10/2013)
