Wireless Music With Motorola Speakers

By Mendelson Tiu | Wednesday | 10/09/2008

The new wireless stereo system from Motorola takes the stress out of music sharing with its connectivity options. Because it can run on batteries, you can take this system anywhere, which livens up any venue or gathering.

Motorola has partnered with JBL for the MotoROKR EQ7, which could probably explain why it looks similar to the On Tour XT we reviewed in July. This audio system provides A2DP Bluetooth streaming, hands-free speakerphone functions for your mobile phone, as well as direct audio playback via its 3.5mm jack.

The EQ7 sports a glossy black finish that surrounds the black speaker grills located on top of the unit.
The volume up and down, previous and next track, and play/pause buttons can be found up front, with the Bluetooth, microphone mute, and power indicator lights located above it. A call/answer button and built-in microphone are also on the device, transforming the unit into a speakerphone when a call comes through.

The power button, power port, 3.5mm audio-in jack, and bass port are all found at the back of the unit. At the bottom of the EQ7, users can find a battery compartment (four AA batteries) that lets a user to bring the unit anywhere. It is just too bad though that Motorola did not include any carrying pouch.

For our test, we first connected the EQ7 with our LG Secret phone via Bluetooth. Pairing was simple and quick, allowing us to play our mobile playlist immediately. Audio streaming was consistent throughout, with the unit pumping out tunes like it was connected to the unit directly. The EQ7's control panel worked without a problem, with us being able to change tracks on the fly.

Other products that don't support the A2DP profile can be hooked up to the unit using the 3.5mm jack. The unit can get definitely fill a room up with music; just don't forget that it can only get loud to a certain point before everything starts to get tinny.

The EQ7 also has a handsfree function that allows a user to pick up calls while listening to music streamed from their phone. A user can either reject or pick up a call, and be able to mute the microphone with a touch of a button. Call quality was admirable, with minimal feedback and lag during hands-free conversations.

The MotoROKR EQ7 comes with a lot of features that can maximise your phone's ability to stream or play audio. It is a must-have device for anyone who has a mobile phone that supports A2DP. And while it can also be used with other devices with a 3.5mm jack, we feel that users should elsewhere if they won't be able to make the most out of the wireless functions.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
