The integrated advanced Near Field Communication components in both devices will get to work and pair with each other in less than a second. No more holding down the button and waiting for discovery mode to kick in.

Waiting on a Replacement
Pros: Compact, good sound, good features, price.
Cons: 3.5m audio connector has a problem
Other Thoughts: Speaker would only pass audio input if the adapter cable was held firmly in one direction at the 3.5mm connector. There is something wrong inside the box. Bluetooth connection worked fine. Returned the unit for a replacement. Darn, it was a gift for someone else.
