August MR220 Bluetooth Audio Receiver Review
The August MR220 is a low cost Bluetooth receiver which has been design to give users a quick and easy way to stream music to cars and audio equipment.
In the box you get the August MR220 receiver, a 3.5 to 3.5 aux cable, instructions and a power cable. Unfortunately the power cable used isn’t a standard USB to micro USB (the sort you use for mobiles, cameras, MP3 players etc), instead it uses a USB to round connector cable. This means you could be in trouble if you can’t find your cable, you can’t just grab another USB cable and charge it up.
In use the August MR220 worked brilliantly. It was very easy to pair with a mobile and to test it out it was set up in a Ford Fiesta, but could be used with anything that accepts input via a 3.5mm cable. Once the August MR220 is plugged in you just set your equipment to the required setting (in this case Aux) and hit play on your device. That’s it! Music starts playing out of your car/stereo from whatever device you’ve paired with the receiver.
The sound quality was very good quality, although the quality is obviously limited to whatever device you’re using this with, but in the car there were no issues and it sounded as good as playing a CD or using the DAB radio.
If you’re mobile is your primary music player, either via services such as Spotify or Deezer, or via MP3s on your phone, then this little receiver is a really quick, easy and low cost way to free your music.
