Reviews And Awards - HEOS 7

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great looks, great user experience I have been using my HEOS 7 speaker for a few weeks and I am impressed - not just with the sound quality, but also the simplicity of the app. The sound is amazing! The speaker sounds great in low volume as well as high volume. The HEOS 7 sound quality isn't particular to a type of music; the HEOS 7 is able to handle the heavy bass in dance and hiphop music as well as the lighter treble in classical. Even podcasts sound great on the HEOS! The app is also very intuitive and easy to use. And it is set up to funnel all of my music sources (both streaming and static). I went ahead and bought two more speakers for my in-laws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unmatched quality for the price I have always been a fan of high quality speakers/systems, as i listen to a variety of music styles daily. This was my first Heos product, and WOW i am very impressed. It has very good range, the highs do not get fuzzy or distorted at high volumes and the bass does not drown out the rest.. it is very crisp and full sounding. This speaker was an excellent choice, it is perfect in size for my family room and has easy wireless connectivity to my phone. The overall build quality is very high, it has a unique style and modern look. I am a Denon customer for life after this experience!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What did I get myself into? I bought the HEOS 7/5 and Cinema Bar so we could have music/sound thru out the house without running a whole bunch of wires. We had issues speakers disappering, not able to group or control them. The Cinema Bar we hard wired and the 7/5 we added a dedicated access point, which resolved the control/grouping/disconnect issues. This access point also connects to a PC and a NAS with DNLA media services. We play .wma, 128Kbps files, each of the speakers can play its own file, even the same file, but when add a speaker to any group/room it does not play. I have treid wired and wireless and get the same result. At this point we now have a $1400 whole house XM radio

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can now have great sound throughout the house I recently upgraded my Denon receiver to a new HEOS enabled receiver and purhased two HEOS speakers, so that I could have music throughtout the house. And, I'm not at all disappointed. However, there are a few features I'd like to see added: 1) it'd be great to have an option to slave these to the receiver, such that anything I do on my reciever is automatically brodcast to the HEOS speakers as if it was a Zone 2 or 3 speaker, 2) when I play CD's on my reciever there is a delay between the musid on my main speakers and the HEOS speakers --> it would be nice to have a setting to fix this, and 3) I wish it could stream Apple music without needing my phone or computer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Sound - Solid Purchase Overall happy with the purchase - I bought this when it went on sale for $399 which is the right pricepoint for this level of speaker. Its a good compliment to my X4300H receiver to bring the same music into my kitchen, living room, and patio at the same time. Setup isn't as seamless as it could be and it randomly dropped its wireless configuration a couple of times after we lost power and wireless network in the house. Mobile app is OK but would like to see search functionality for the Amazon Music input.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound. Heos and AVR integration needs work Have been a loyal Denon AVR customer for over a decade using their AVR receivers at work in a film studio and at home. HEOS speaker is used as an extension speaker in our kitchen. The IOS apps for HEAS and AVR receiver are unnecessarily complicated. It is not possible to switch input sources on the AVR via either APP IF one of the Main Zones is not active. So its dumb if you are listening to the Tuner in the Kitchen via HEOS (family asleep) and you simply want to change FM stations remotely. They should integrate the HEOS and AVR remote APP into a single app, and the wireless HEOS output of the AVR should be treated as its own Zone 3 allowing you to select whatever source you like.
Date published: 2017-12-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound let down by an awful app. The sound quality is excellent, the system is easy to set up but once you start talking about the app not the hardware the story changes. The App feels unfinished and clunky to use, the queuing is poor across multiple devices and the playlist creation is very unintuitive. All the faults are in the app though and apps will be updated (hopefully quickly). This system has the potential to be awesome but at the moment lags behind Sonos in overall uability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the speaker! Just recently got the HEOS 7 speaker and we love it. It's the new family favorite! The speaker was so easy to set up. Plug it in and download the HEOS app to your device of choice or several devices. Our family added the app to our iPads, iPods and phones. The speaker isn't too big it fits nicely on the top of our entertainment center. The app was very easy to use. Just add the app which is a free download to your device. Then choose the many different areas to stream your music from such as Pandora, iheart RADIO or music on your device. Your device acts as your remote so you can control the music from anywhere in your house that is within your Wifi range. The sound of the speaker is crystal clear. It's loud enough to hear it on both floors of the house without being too loud. Easily adjust the volume from your device. The only issue we have now is fighting with the rest of my family on whose music to listen to since each person can control the music from their own device. Looks like we will be purchasing the smaller speakers so each person could play their own music choice at the same time. We are very happy with our purchase! Will definitely be purchasing additional speakers for the rest of the family. Great gifts also.

Q&A - HEOS 7

I purchased the Dennon 4300 AVR and trying to ascertain what to do with my whole house AV using the Dennon Link. I have a Bose 5 speaker with two subwoofers previously driven by a Yamaha , a Polk single speaker, a Samsung bar w a bluetooth subwoofer

Asked by: Dragon Master
Hello Dragon Master, You can use the Link if you have another receiver that does not use HEOS, so the Yamaha. The Polk speaker most likely uses PlayFi, which is different from HEOS but the same concept. And the Samsung bar with Bluetooth will not compatible with Bluetooth. You should work on replacing everything this is not HEOS with HEOS products.

I just bought an AVR-X2400H Denon receiver and am now looking for speakers. My question is now after looking at speakers, is do I need this receiver or can I play music and Sirius from my computer direct to the HEOS 7 speakers? 

Asked by: GeofL
Hello GeofL, You can use the HEOS 7 either with or seperate from the AVR-X2400H. But to use the AVR-X2400H with HEOS you will need to connect passive speakers to it. You can use the computer with HEOS. I would take a look at either Polk Audio or Definitive Technology for speakers.

I have the Heos 5, 7, and Cinema Bar. I have WMP .wma files on my PC and a storage drive with DLNA Media enabled. I can play any song from either "Media Server" on any one speaker but when I pair/group any other speaker I get no sound from it, why??

Asked by: RichieC
Hello RichieC, The first thing to verify in this scenario would be to make sure all HEOS devices that are connected on this network are updated to the latest or same HEOS firmware version. Mismatched firmware versions could cause issues similar to what you are experiencing.

Can I connect a Heos 7 to my Denon sound bar? There is not a wired connection I can find form the sound bar and the sound bar is not on Wi-Fi. The sound bar is connected with a digital audio connection to the Direct TV box.

Asked by: V MAx Mike
If it's a Denon sound bar (DHT-S514) and not a HEOS sound bar, then there is no way to connect the HEOS 7. If it's a HEOS sound bar, the only way to get the HEOS 7 to play along with the sound bar would be to connect the sound bar to the network and group the speaker using the HEOS app.
