Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound, beautiful speaker I love the HEOS 5! The sound travels wonderfully throughout my apartment -- in the living room, you can still hear the music clearly and booming from down the hall. The sound is strong, clear, and the base is tight but not distorted. It makes for fun listening! The setup was super easy and I like how quickly I can move it from the living area to other rooms, if necessary, and back. Regarding the app, I wish it were a little more user-friendly; it took a lot of updates at first and can be a little slow to navigate. But otherwise, the speaker is stylish and sleek, and has the sound quality to match. I would definitely recommend to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Speaker with Superb Sound Quality!! The Heos 5 is a great sounding product in a small package. The set up was very easy and it only took a few minutes. Once I downloaded the free HEOS app on my phone, I loved all the choices of music services available that I can easily control from my phone anywhere in my house. It's effortless! The sound quality on this speaker is Crisp and Clear and it has a Booming Bass. We can hear the speaker playing throughout our house. I also love that this speaker is a mid-size with a fantastic design that is sleek, modern, and stylish. It looks great anywhere you put it. Another plus, it has a carrying handle molded in the back which makes it very portable. The HEOS 5 has spoiled me and I am loving it! Thank You Denon for a great product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality speaker I use my heos 5 nearly every day. Sometimes on its own or with my 1 & 7. The speaker has great sound...it is very "full"-it has a rich bass sound and is very clear as the volume goes up. It does not sound "tinny" and is a good value compared to the sonos. While I love the speaker itself, the app to control it is not pleasing. I have had the speaker for about a month now and still cannot play music I have downloaded on my ipod. The app constantly freezes and is very slow. App quality needs to be improved asap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High End Overachieving Speaker Just got a HEOS 5 (my second HEOS) and I'm addicted! Sound is unbelievable from such a compact speaker. So many options too... I've loaded a huge USB stick with songs and plugged it in the back of the speaker. Can't be beat. Set up was simple and the new app is 100% better than the old one. No complaints! Now that I've got multiple rooms set up, it's time for a party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is awesome This speaker sounds great. We put it in the family room/kitchen area and it totally fills the room with music. It can get quite loud without distorting at all. The app is easy to use and setup was easy. The only negative I found was no support for Google Play so we just use our Amazon Prime account for Amazon Music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound! Big sound from a small speaker. Love the bass this speaker puts out. I am currently in a 3500 sq. ft two story home. I can cover most of the house from two spots on the first floor.

I recently purchased the HEOS 5 and I love the sound quality. However one big issue I have is that I cannot fast forward or rewind when playing music from NAS, my personal library on phone, and my library on DLNA server. Will this be implemented and when?

Asked by: SethD
Hi Seth. We are aware of this limitation when playing music from a NAS, and hope to improve the function in the future. However, at this time we can't provide an estimate on when that might be implemented.

Asked by: Frost78
Hello it is possible for you to connect one HEOS 5 to your router then switch it to wifi using the settings menu. This may help work around your issue. Also you could try to add the HEOS speakers using a different smart device.

Is there an on/off button on the Heos 5. If so where is it.

Asked by: Becky
Hey Becky, there is no On/Off button for the HEOS 5. If you want to shut it off completely you would just unplug it.

Is it possible to use the speaker without a network connection. Just through the aux?

Asked by: JOPp
Technically, yes. The unit will detect when you plug in the aux input, and should automatically switch to that input. Then you can control the volume using the buttons on the side of the unit, and the volume control of the connected device. It's recommended to connect it to a network in order to update the unit, but the auto input sensing will work on the HS2 model right out of the box. Thank you.

I have just bought a number of Heos products for my house. I use a wireless network with hidden SSID. The sound bars seem to work fine with this hidden SSID but the Heos 5 HS2 does not. Is it possible to use Heos 5 with my hidden SSID network?

Asked by: Ranzo
Hi Ranzo. We checked with our software developers and confirmed that this symptom has already been identified, and will be corrected in the next update. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Is the Bluetooth input to the Heos 5 treated as an Auxiliary Input so that I can send a music source to Heos 5 via Bluetooth and also have it go to another room?

Asked by: Ranzo
Yes. You can start Bluetooth playback to one speaker, and group other speakers with it in order to distribute that audio throughout the house. In order for this to happen, all devices must be connected to the same network.
