Bluetooth Speakers
« on: September 24, 2012, 11:11:10 PM »
Does anyone use a Bluetooth speaker with their Nexus 7? If so, which brand and do you notice any problems with Jellybean.

I have a Motorla EQ5 portable Bluetooth speaker that I use with my N7.  It works very well and provides better quality sound and louder volume then the N7's built-in speakers.  I've also used the speaker with my Motorola Droid Razr phone and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet with equally good results.  Motorola EQ5

I hate to disagree with anyone, but fxsarge is absolutely correct, the Bose offering is the only solution.

This is where my cry for help started to begin. I have had Bluetooth/WiFi issues from the beginning. Sometimes it is fine but most of the time unacceptable. If I play the music off of Google Music thru the regular nexus internal speaker it streams fine. As soon as I try and use bluetooth it stutters. This is by far for me the most annoying issue that I have encountered with this device. I use it mostly to listen to music and video and such and this just really is unacceptable. I don't even know if it is a Nexus issue or just an inherent trait of Jellybean or Android period. I'm annoyed.

As far as Bose, they sound good but there are alternatives

I have noticed that the sound stutter happens mostly when the screen is turned off. I have WiFi set to not sleep but that didn't help. Going nuts trying to figure this out .

Yeah I feel ya Sarge. I know you love your toys and music. This issue has really been making me nuts. I am resigned to just loading as much music and video as I can onto the SD and my widrive and forget about streaming with the built in WiFi till its fixed.

What's killing me is that it messes up even if its music stored on the device. If the wifi is on at all it does it.

yeah. Its smoother if its on the device but still getting jammed up. Slingbox, youTube and Netflix are almost unwatchable. I paid 30 dollars for the Slingbox app and I can't use it. For a long time I blamed them. Its bluetooth and WiFi mixed on android .period.

I mean it use to work fine. There usually lag with some apps but that didnt bug me much. I think right now this update just messed up the radios and will get fixed soon. Kinda like the GPS issue on the gnex.

Yes! Finally! It looks like the Google developers are finally giving this issue some attention.
