bCODA CODA One – Ultimate Bluetooth Handset for All Your Audio Needs

Simplify your lifestyle.

CODA One is a Bluetooth speaker for smartphones. It also allows access to Siri or third-party app, such as Vlingo, with a single button to allow voice dialing, searching, and more. The slim and sleek Coda One also doubles as a portable speaker for music and movies, and offers solid performance. The dual-speaker device can also be switched to handset mode and held to your face like a standard phone to allow for private conversations. While not essential for phone users (who could simply pick up the actual paired device), it's a helpful addition that can be used for VOIP calls on tablets, bringing you closer to a traditional phone experience. As a wider array of mobile devices comes into the market, such as CODA One allows us to keep up with the action. CODA One delivers the wireless, hands-free flexibility of Bluetooth products, without the bulk and weight of other products.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: - Clear audio
- Connects to phone quickly when turned on
- Nice that it doubles as a Bluetooth stereo speaker

Cons: - Could be smaller (I opened it up, there's a lot of empty space inside)

Other Thoughts: I bought this product on the off-chance that I could use it with Zello. It is actually a Coda One, which is distinct from the Coda S that has Zello compatibility, but both the One and the S share the same hardware. After flashing this product with the Coda S firmware, it works great with Zello and I have not encountered any problems.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than I expected for the price

Pros: Pleased with device. Instantly linked and connected to galaxy s4 (Just have Bluetooth on). Louder than phone. I place under pillow to listen to music at bedtime and it never got hot.
Worked in another room 30+' away with no problem. Phone calls work fine. Doesn't take long to charge and there is audio (voice) messages if battery geting low.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: No problem recomending it.

3 out of 5 eggsShould have been designed better

Pros: 1. Solid construction
2. well balance weight

Cons: 1. LED lights too confusing. Should use LCD/LED screen for status
2. Info voice (status) too loud, music and call voice too soft.
3. Does not initiate calls for phones without the voice dialer.

Other Thoughts: It is designed to work as handset and stereo speaker. The symmetrical design for the speaker is actually very bad for use as a handset. 50% chance to hold it upside down when in a hurry. It is an useful gadget for a phablet but it should have been designed better. The ongoing price of $29.99 is okay. The super inflated MSRP of $99.99 is just a fantasy.

4 out of 5 eggsGood choice

Pros: As a person who is not a fan of the in ear type bluetooth devices, I was looking for something I could use in my car to take calls safely while on the road. This turned out to be quite an ideal solution.

-Easy and strong magnetic mount makes removing/charging it super easy.
-Good volume that makes hearing your call not difficult.
-Good battery life.
-Pairs with a phone almost instantly (as you would expect).

It works pretty much as well as you can expect any device in this category to perform. You can answer a call by simple saying "answer", no hands or taking your eyes off the road required.

This includes a car power port with a USB cable so if you have a modern android phone, you are essentially getting a phone charger as well. This is nice because you save money by not having to by a separate car charger (if you don't have one already) and it's good to have since your phones battery wear down faster while connected via bluetooth as you would expect and no one wants their phone dying while out.

Cons: It's expensive (however in my opinion you get what you pay for here). I would much rather have this than an in the ear type device.

The power button could be a lot more user friendly. It's a tiny little toggle switch on the upper left of the device. They should have made the power on/off button much larger and easier to operate (without looking) since most people will be using this in a car.

Other Thoughts: Over all this is a good buy and I would still prefer it to any other the other devices that I have seen on the market. It's recommended.

3 out of 5 eggsSweet but kind of pointless bluetooth audio system

Pros: This thing will stream music from a Nexus device up to 30ft away.
The speakers provide much better sound and volume then nexus 4 or Nexus 7 or tablet (both devices have decent speakers).
The build quality is superior and feels very nice in your hand, works well with the little stands, and the function buttons are straight forward.
As others have mentioned the battery last forever, seriously.

Cons: The thing makes the most annoying sounds and voice prompts. They are loud obnoctious and serv no purpose. When you do basic phone functions it will speak in a very loud voice ANSERING CALL, or BLUETOOTH DEVICE CONNECTED!
As other have mentioned, the voice and sound quality during calls can be lacking most likely due to a poor sound canceling system.
Price, at ~$80 this is a very expensive phone accessory that can be substituted by a blue tooth earpiece and a cheap set of battery powered plug in speakers.

Other Thoughts: This has great potential as a gift or someone who travels a lot and loves to have a disco party in their hotel room. Its slick, compact, offers great range, good sound, and good functionality in a small package. At $80 though its a tough sell and the loud voice prompts are a deal breaker for me. Having a button flashing a specific color is enough of a prompt for telling me the phone is connected to a device or that there is a call in process.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Handset

Pros: I will start by saying this is a very nice handset if you are using it for music, for such a small device, it does have a very nice full sound, If you know what your getting, and not expecting a large speaker system, then this is very Nice, I have used it with my computer to play games and watch a movie in my bedroom and suprised me on the sound quality. Also Good battery life. easy to get it to connect to a bluetooth device like phone, laptop, computer. ipad, etc..also the clip and the rubber feel is a nice touch to it. you can hang it from your sun visor in your car for hands free phone. in your car.

Cons: Voice starts to crackle if used for a hands free phone in a noisy van, but so do alot of others i've tried. If your not in a noisy van and don't have to crank this up to hear it, then your fine. But i did take 1 egg off for that reason alone.

Other Thoughts: I took off 1 egg from the voice crackling when turned up using it as a hands free phone. But, listning to music, or using this for your laptop or computer watching a streaming show or watching a music video, i was suprised at how nice this sounded. i play world of tanks and some other games, and i will have to say this does sound good. If your limited on desk space, or specialy using a tin sounding laptop, You need to get this. highly recommend. My wife is picky and she really liked this when i hooked it up to her laptop for her to try it. she started to watch youtube music video's and was suprised on the big sound from such a small speaker. This is an expert review, but i try and be very fair on anything i rate and I try and give the review were anyone can understand it. I hope this helps anyone who is looking for something to connect to there bluetooth device that is small, but sounds nice,

4 out of 5 eggsA useful and appealing gadget

Pros: The aesthetics and build quality are excellent. It has a nice heft, a small size, and the rubberized coating pleasant to grip.

The sound is clear.

The magnetic visor clip works very well. Much nicer than Velcro or a permanent attachment.

It did not take too long to charge, and the battery life is good.

It's versatile, performing well as a car phone, computer phone, or music player.

Cons: Sound is not very full for music listening, but that is expected given the compact size of the unit.

A bit pricey, perhaps, but, considering the fact that it seems built to last, that is not much of a concern.

Other Thoughts: If you want Bluetooth audio, this is a quality device that covers a few different bases.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: I will start by saying that this product has a wide variety of uses. I like the soft touch plastic on the outside and the really smart (and I might add strong) magnetic clip provided to hanging this from your visor in the car.

The microphone seems to pick up my voice very well when talking on it and callers were not able to distinguish the clarity from my in-car bluetooth system. Which, I've been told, is pretty good.

As a music player it is also pretty decent albeit a bit tinny at first. This seemed to mellow out after several hours at high volume level. We are now using this in the bathroom for speakers to play from our phones when in the shower. It seems to work well for this purpose.

The battery life thus far has been pretty spot on with the packaging and I do appreciate that it uses a standard micro USB to charge.

Cons: On to the cons.

First and foremost, I will start by stating that the voice prompts on my unit are waaaaay too loud. In addition to this annoyance, there isn't anything mentioned in the instructions on how to turn these down. I'm then to assume that there isn't a way to adjust them and I'm a little disappointed at this.

As I stated above, the speakers are pretty tinny and this mellows a bit with use. However, I wouldn't say that it's the best thing in the world for playing music on.

The biggest con on this product is the Bluetooth range. I've factored this down to only about three feet away from the unit. This was done with both a Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC Desire. Both devices started cutting out audio on calls and music at about three feet away.

Other Thoughts: I mainly used this as a handsfree speaker phone device and as a bluetooth music player while I was testing it.

Overall, it wasn't a bad product but I'm not sure that I would pay the full retail price. It feels a bit steep for the shortcomings that this unit has.
