I bought the smart connect, wanting to use with my Android Samsung S4, and TV to displace my Sennheiser headphones.
In setting up the phone, had the HIS to +6db, since I turned the volume all the way up to hear on them in testing. It work…seemed ok, but with only the two calls I took so far, the clarifity, well it wasn’t quite as clear/sharp I thought it should be.
The big issues, is when I open the phone up, just to main screen, I hear the smart connect beeping in my ear, switching from automatic to streaming programs. It did that at Costco, she call Siemans, and said the notifications settings on the phone need turned off. We did that, it seemed to work, for a very short time then resumed about the time I left Costco. In fact I open the phone, it switches the programs, auto to streaming to auto…I open an email…does the same thing. Not good. Once home I played with it a bit, repairded the HAs, tried different phone settings, nothing changed. Anyone with ideas to try?
Also once home, I do not have bluetooth on the TV, but watching TV with the HAs in automatic mode…it actually sounds pretty good. Need to watch a movie to really test. I also notice in the car, the radio was distinctly clearer to me.
With the TV sounding the way it does, and the connect problems, beginning to think if I really need this smart connect.
