Ratings and Reviews
Great looking and sounding products, but the app needs 1 thing
I have the 5 in my bedroom and also two 3’s and the sub grouped as a 2.1 system in my garage and they all sound amazing! I’ll admit I had my doubts at first to the spotty/connectivity issues I had. I decided to upgrade my WiFi network to a whole house Eero Pro 3 router system and haven’t had a problem since. As others have said, most if not all negative reviews probably stem from a poor WiFi network. It’s nice that you can hardwire the devices to completely eliminate that from ever being an issue. If there is one thing I could ask for though, it would be an easier access to the EQ and sub level settings while playing music. As recordings and sources vary, I find myself having to navigate excessive steps to make a minor adjustment to the sub level. PLEASE add an independent sub level (for grouped devices like my 2.1 system) at the music page!
Heos App is horrible!!
This is the worst music app ever. I have two HEOS 1 Series 2 speakers with go packs that look and sound amazing when they work. The problem is the app. Everytime I use them I have to go into the app and find the devices and reconnect them to Bluetooth. The app will come up and say "searching for devices" but won't find them, even if I am standing right next to them until I do it multiple times. Then I have to go back into Bluetooth and connect to the devices all over again. If you then try linking the two devices to play together which they call "pairing the devices" it takes multiple tries as well. I have to toggle back and forth between Bluetooth trying to connect and the HEOS app trying to pair until they finally work. This takes a minimum of 10 minutes and has to be done everytime you use them. The app doesn't remember anything you have done before and the devices constantly lose Bluetooth connection. The app is also very basic with no real features at all.
I have had these for over a year praying for the day that Denon would try to save their reputation by updating this app with a new awesome version. NOT!! Very disappointed in Denon that they don't care enough to put a decent app out there to run an otherwise awesome product. They look good, sound great and the go pack is phenomenal. How could they package this together with such and archaid grade school level app? Go figure?
App has issues with Denon Home product line (in my case, a mixture of Home250 and Home350 speakers)
Issue 1: poor user interface (UI). This looks like an app that development engineers hacked up to get the system working. UI organization is horrible with many redundancies and non-intuitive paths to what you want to accomplish. I can live with issue 1, but … Issue 2: some units will not upgrade firmware to latest version. They “think” they’re updated but they’re not. As a result, units have different firmware revisions, which breaks your ability to group speakers to, for example, get them all playing the same music. After about 48 hours, the culprit speakers do update to latest firmware, but there’s no apparent way to control this other than leaving it up to the auto update feature and waiting until it does its thing in the background.
Issue 3: I’m sure it’s a big challenge to make the app interface well with all the music streaming services out there. The app doesn’t allow for search in Pandora, which is a major pain. The app also doesn’t show or give access to any content on my iPhone.
