Reviews And Awards - HEOS 1

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice sound, craptastic software I got one of these "free" with the purchase of a Denon receiver, and ordered a second one to put in a remote room. The initial setup went fine, and the speakers sound adequate for the price and space, but then I began having connectivity issues. The speakers would not appear in the mobile app, and I have had to reinstall them several times. This is pretty par for the course with Denon product software. They make a very nice hardware item, but the accompanying mobile app software is horrible. I have two Denon receivers, and two Heos 1 speakers, and the quality (or lack thereof) of the mobile app control software leaves much to be desired.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from In the end it’s just s Bluetooth Speaker I was excited to get a HEOS 1 to add an additional Listening zone to my home. the speaker would “group” correctly in the HEOS App. I worked with technical support and reconfigured all of my devices, and still no progress. The speaker wasn’t visavle in the HEOS App in either a wired set-up or wirelessly, however my AVR-4300 remained visable and fully functional in all configurations. I could connect directly, through Spotify Connect and also as a Bluetooth device, but could no group the speaker which was the intent of the purchase. After many hours resetting the device andworking with tech support, I decided to give up. I returned the HEOS 1.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Total Mess The Heos 1 sounds OK on the rare occasions that it has worked. I have gone through the set up sequence several times. Sometimes it works for a day or two, sometimes it won’t connect at all. Spent a few minutes with it yesterday and it actually played, and then worked fine this morning. Came home this afternoon and not working again. I’ve had the same results when trying to hook up directly with a cable. Tried resolving problem with Denon online service and their comment was that I needed to check my WiFi. I did, plenty of signal and other WiFi devices work fine much further away from my router. Bought this because I had used a Denon receiver for years with great results. The HEOS 1 on the other hand has disappointed from day 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressive I just got back from visiting my sister, who has a Sonos system which sounded great. So I wanted to purchase a system for my home. I went on line and was surprised to find that Sonos was not blue tooth capable nor could you hard wire your music to these speakers. I searched for other options and found the HEOS speakers by Denon, I knew Denon from my youth and loved their quality then and with the speakers being wi-fi, Bluetooth and hard wire capable, I decided to give them a shot. I was not disappointed at all, the speakers were easy to setup are easy to use with my I-pad and sound great !!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lack real world usage and testing of software I was under the impression these could be used as additional speakers to my wired speaker on my Denon 4300H to watch TV. Weeks later i still have no idea how to run them simultaneously with my wired speakers. Integration with Alexa is problematic. drops far too often to be relied upon without re-requesting. HEOS software hangs... not even close to expected level of simplicity for operation or reliability. no feedback in software for status of speaker. says it is playing when it is not! really should have the ability to update its software!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed This was recommended to be at the reatailer over the SONOS system. Paid $AUD350 at Harvey Norman in February 2016 - I'm planning on taking it back for refund. Since purchasing 11 months ago I have encountered multiple hardware and software issues. I have replaced both my wifi modem and mobile phone but still encounter constant connectivity issues, usually with music previously downloaded from computer to phone, but also with purchased music from iTunes. The software/App periodically crashes, fails to connect or has conniptions that I simply can't un-bug. Bluetooth constantly drops out even when mobile phone is sitting next to speaker. Users are mandated to stream all content through the App which is ridiculous... i purchased a "wireless speaker" not a speaker that Denon determines what I can stream by virtue of their commercial arrangements with providers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but missing key functionality.... Sounds quality is really good for the size of the speaker, however for me the biggest drawback is the lack of Apple music support, this is heavily restrictive for me as the majority of the Music I own was purchased via iTunes.
Date published: 2016-07-11
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Abismal software and app I must first say the speaker itself for its size produces great sound. However this is pretty much where to good news stops and its positives are irrelevant when its a nightmare if not impossible to get the desired sound to the speaker! I purchased the HEOS 1 as an experiment to see how good the overall system is before speaker on anything more expensive, in short the usability of the system is extremely limited and has not progressed in the months I've own it. If Denon ever becoms serious about streaming then I will come back and look at buying additional units and the big brother/sister units but for my HEOS 1 will gather dust quietly (literally) on the shelf. This product line has great potential but the software (app) is decades behind where it needs to be and not very reliable for the limited functionality it has. For me I should be able to stream any audio source from any app on my phone or computer directly to the HEOS speaker(s) I should not have to use the HEOS App or be restricted to what it allows. EG, I'm sitting on my back porch watching a show or a football game on my iPhone or computer etc. I should be able to directly stream the audio from that to the speakers, but nope not a chance! Sure I can ad hoc an apple tv or an airport express but why should I havre to do that having purchased "wireless speakers" its farcical. Right now all you can do is send audio from the very limited "approved" streams in the app which are all audio providers only. In summary I would stay away for spend any amounts of money on these unless you sole intent is to steam radio from the limited providers it acknowledges it supports. For me this product fails in all aspects us usability sad functionality.

Hello, You will not be able to do that with the AVR-X6400H. The only receiver you can use HEOS speakers as rears on is the HEOS AVR.

I originally configured my Heos 1 via WiFi (perfect). Then I connected it via ethernet: perfect but... watching at my router's connections, the Heos 1 is still WiFi connected too. How can the "Heos 1" WiFi module be switched off?

Asked by: Richard
Hello Richard, When setting up a HEOS speaker via WiFi then connecting to the network via Ethernet the WiFi connection will remain active by default. This is not a bad thing since the WiFi will not be active for data communication and only act as a wireless beacon for a best case sync scenario when grouping with other wireless speakers. If you would like to completely disable the WiFi connection while connection via Ethernet then there is an option in the Advanced page under settings that allows you to turn On “ Wireless Power Saving” which will disable with WiFi card when Ethernet is connected. You could also default the HEOS speaker and this would also clear any WiFi info stored, but this would also default all other settings back to factory defaults as well.

I have a 730h AVR and heos1. How do I make the heos1 play the same music as the AVR from a HDMI input (eg TV sound?)

Asked by: Heos1soundless
Hello Heos1soundless, The Denon AVR-S730H does not support the redistribution of audio via a digital source such as HDMI 1. This Denon AVR model would only support “TV Sound Grouping” when using an analog input source.
