Hope it gets better
When changing the volume of linked speakers there's some really glitchy behavior as the volume dial jumps around, usually to a lower volume, once you let go of the slider. Also, why does it take around 15 seconds for my connected speaker to be recognized. I don't recall that being an issue in the past. I just discovered that there is also an issue where even though my two linked zipp speakers are playing music from a Bluetooth connection on a different device, a call that came in on a phone that was not playing anything started ringing on the speakers as the music was still playing. Dismissing the call on the phone then also caused the music to stop playing from the other device. I have to disconnect and reconnect the speakers in order to get them to play music again.
Great speaker, app needs a lot of work
This is a lovely speaker but the app needs a lot of work. Here is a list of bugs that I’m experiencing: 1) app randomly exits speaker settings without any action 2) app says low battery even though speaker is fully charged and verified by my phone. 3) app says speaker is on another network which is impossible, I only have one network. Then there are improvements I would suggest: 1) how about a battery % somewhere in the app, that tiny battery level is illegible. 2) all of these graphics in Settings (giant clock for timer but you have to click to adjust it, weird waves image for Voicing) are useless...minimize the design and have more relevant information for the device. Looking forward to future updates.
The speakers per se are ok although I have not compared them with the competitors. The app is very very disappointing. I have three Libratone speakers - zip 2, zip 2 mini, zip mini. I cannot connect them to the same WiFi at the same time but only one or two of them. I Thus I cannot enjoy the claimed grouping effect of the speakers. What a waste ! I spent hours to reset the speakers, reinstall the app, restart my router, tried using different iPhone iPad and macbook, but none of them work. Besides, why I need to share my location or blue tooth even though I was using WiFi. Isn’t that is privacy issue? I really don’t understand why a speaker app would ask for access right to my location! I HATE it!
Lots to improve on here
I got a Zipp to use as an airplay speaker. It worked fine for a while, but now I can hardly ever get an airplay connection going on the thing. So I’ve switched to using it as a BlueTooth speaker. Not ideal. I’d like to be able to use it with my phone plugged into the speaker, but whenever I hook it up, the only way to change the volume is through the App. Unfortunately I can’t get the speaker to connect to the app any more. The speaker does work pretty well as a Bluetooth speaker though. So I hardly ever open this app any more. I’d prefer to use the speaker in other ways but I have settled on the BT connection.
I bought this so that I don’t have to connect via Bluetooth but the new update requires you to turn on Bluetooth in order to access the app (when my speaker is already connected to my WiFi network)! Suggestions of changes to make, 1. have the app open directly to the last page opened (instead of having to select the speaker each time to adjust something simple like volume) 2. Have a list version to change the voicing and room settings (current way takes too long to slide left and right between the many settings) 3. Set a alarm/turn on feature
Unacceptable app is going to kill this company
I have two Zipp speakers, which sound great and used to work ok with the Libratone app, but a recent update has made the app worthless. It no longer locates my speakers, even though I can still play to one of them through AirPlay. The app tells me to turn on WiFi and Bluetooth to enable it to locate devices, but both are ALREADY ON. I’ve tried force quitting, restarting the speakers, reconnecting to WiFi, but can’t seem to fix this problem. I would have loved to have supported this company by buying more of its products, but this terrible app is enough to drive me to Sonos or another competitor.
App, airplay 2 and customer support phenomenal
Finally airplay 2 update! It works beautifully! I have three speakers that i can now easily link or play individually from any device I want. This weekend our WiFi went out, no problem at all to play to all three speaker Bluetooth! Was perfect. I’ve contacted customer support before and immediately got a response to my email. Thanks!
App does not match quality of devices!
There is frequently disconnects between the app and devices. Rebooting everything will often resolve it, though sometimes it takes multiple tries. Reminds me of how frustrating iTunes Sync over Wi-Fi used to be on Windows apps. Everything should just connect, to buggy. And I wish I had access to all the devices that are shown in the app! Bring the Track Air+ SE’s to the states! Or at least the Track Air’s...that doesn’t have anything to do with my rating obviously.
Updating more than one, troublesome
I have four Zipps(1 large,3 small) distributed through out the house. Updating the firmware requires quitting the App between each update. Annoying more than anything. Other notes: Airplay works only robustly from a computer. iPhones and iPads will play for awhile then disconnect. The phone/pad will think everything is fine but no sound. I am running an EERO network, so the problem may be buried there...don’t have time for that debug. A direct link to one with Bluetooth works just fine....so no worries. Combining the Zipps with the App has the same issue as the Airplay problem. Combining them from the computer works fine. Discovery of all the Zipps takes ~minute, which feels slow considering I am usually connected to one.
Horrible Customer Service
If you’re looking for a wireless speaker, seek out another brand. I realize that if you’re reading reviews of the Libratone app that it may be too late, but see if you can return or exchange the product. Compatibility with iTunes and Airplay (which is what the speakers are marketed for) will just stop working. Libratone offers no help or solutions and instead instructs you to seek other companies for help for their products and wipes their hands of things. I paid $700 for a useless brick, don’t you do the same... there are other options on the market.
Buggy, feels unfinished
Lots of custom UI in this app but it’s buggy and some features are missing. Kicking the user back to the first screen every time the app is foregrounded is annoying. Also, the + button to add to favorites is missing. Overall, I’d rather have an app that works well and uses standard UIKit components instead of something that’s half baked but looks unique (though to be fair, a lot of the look is borrowed from the Home app). Has potential but isn’t a joy to use.
AirPlay 2 warning
Not only is this app buggy, but updating the firmware to allow Airplay 2 killed my Mini. It was fine before the update, but now it won’t keep a steady connection to WiFi anymore and when it does manage to play it is out of sync with other speakers. Did a factory reset but somehow the new firmware is still installed? I don’t understand how that is even possible. Libratone needs a fix quick!
Amazing Products, iffy app
Absolutely LOVE the sound of the Zipp2. Incredible clarity with real bass. The app needs improvement though. Lacking basic features like showing the current battery percentage and can be buggy at times. Please improve the app! If the app were better, I would have already bought a second one.
This app has great potential features. I love the sleep timer feature. However, playback is often interrupted, especially when streaming radio through the app. I constantly have to pick up my phone and reopen everything while I’m working to keep the radio playing. The app also takes a long time to recognize the speaker. All that with a strong WiFi signal available. Very frustrating.
I am so tired of dealing with these buggy things
For a while after the Airplay 2 update, I was reasonably happy with these, after having them drive me crazy for over a year. Now I can never use them unless I turn both all the way off and then on again. I’ll restore them back to factory settings AGAIN and just wait for the problem to come back. I will never buy or recommend a product from this company again. 👎👎
