Amp3 Tech Spot: Syncing the Jaybird Sportsband Bluetooth Earphones with the Apple iPad

*Get a set of Jaybird Sportsbands from Advanced MP3 Players for £89.*


If you’ve got two of the latest hi-tech gizmos on the market, the Apple iPad and the Jaybird Sportsband Bluetooth earphones here’s a quick guide to show you how to pair them together so you can get great sound without wires!


On the iPod select the ‘Settings’ option from the main home screen.



On the left you’ll be presented with a list of sections, to find the Bluetooth settings select ‘General’ on the left.  On the right hand side of the iPad screen you’ll now be presented with a long list of the general settings, and one of the options near the top will be ‘Bluetooth’, quickly tap that option and you’ll be presented with the relevant settings.


First, switch on the Bluetooth if it’s not already set. The iPad will then start to search for any nearby Bluetooth devices.

Press and hold the power button on the Jaybird Sportsband headphones, the power light will first start to flash blue, keep holding the button until it flashes red and blue, which will indicate the earphones are ready to be detected.

The iPad should now have detected the Sportsband earphones and they will be listed as model ‘SB1’ with a status of ‘Not Paired’ on the list of available Bluetooth devices.


Tapping on the SB1 entry, the iPad will now confirm you wish to pair with the Sportsband earphones.


Clicking ‘Pair’, the Sportsband earphones will now be shown as connected and now ready for use with the iPad.

Press the home button to go back to the main iPad home screen and click on ‘iPod’ to bring up the music functions. The iPad will now show in the top left that it is using the Sportsband (SB1) earphones instead of the internal speaker or normal headphones.

‘The X-mini RAVE looks good, it’s highly portable and the sound is better than we expected at this price and size.’ iPad and iPhone User

Read full review here

The X mini RAVE received a glowing review from iPad and iPhone User describing the speaker as ‘ideal for scenarios where you haven’t got access to a full-scale music system.’
The RAVE model of the X mini cohort is equipped with the added feature of FM radio. No longer must you use your MP3 player or phone to enjoy flawless sound from the speaker.  One of the standout features of any X mini speaker is their small size and portability. Despite the radio feature, the RAVE does not change in size but incorporates the speaker into the existing mould. What’s even better is that it comes with a memory feature so your last played station is stored.
You can purchase an X mini RAVE model from Advanced MP3 Players priced at £39.99.

Icon iDo by NuForce now available for pre order! Check it out!

iDoIcon iDo


The Icon iDo if finally ready for pre order from Amp3.  The digital audio converter and headphone amplifier has been made specifically for Apple products to convert digitally stored music files to their original audiophile quality.


The device might look a bit odd and might not seem so straightforward but the science behind it is really very simple.


Apple products like the iPod, can store a near original CD quality copy of a music file (Apple Lossless) but doe not reproduce that quality of sound when playing the file. Sound is only as good as the default digital to analogue converter.


When connected, the iDo bypasses the default converter and extracts the original high quality file without any loss of clarity. It produces audiophile grade sound from a digitally stored file.  Simple!


The iPod which for years has been the world’s most popular MP3 player shows no sign of relinquishing any of its market dominance. The iDo brings to the world of Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad users a supremely high quality sound without having to purchase a high performing MP3 player.


Pre order yours today for £399.

Sonos Play:3 – So much and so easy

Sonos Play:3

The Sonos Play:3

The Sonos Play:3 has generated a fair amount of buzz prior to its release. Now the new generation has landed, reviewers and users alike have been increasingly impressed with the consideration Sonos have invested in making far reaching improvements.
Unless you want to connect up to 32 devices the price won’t put you off. Compared to the Play:5, the wireless system is entirely affordable. For most of us, a lottery win was mandatory before purchasing a decent HiFi but thanks to sensible pricing from Sonos, the device is just as accessible as the music.
Your Sonos purchase is also an exclusive invitation to endless amounts of preloaded Internet radio stations. Through a Bluetooth connection you can connect your own phone or MP3 player letting you play your own music effortlessly. The option to extend your music library almost infinitely through wireless streaming services such as Napster or Spotify is an electrifying prospect.

The Sonos Play:3 is equipped with a three driver speaker system, three digital amps, one tweeter, two mid-range drivers and one bass radiator to ensure superb sound quality.
This all sounds very complicated but set-up and use could not be easier. You just connect your MP3 player with a few clicks of a button and then you’re ready to go. There is also opportunity to expand your Sonos collection, adding more speakers without any complicated installation or further set-up. Check the promotional video to see exactly how easy it is to get connected here.


So if you’re not persuaded yet read some of these reviews and you soon will be!


‘The Sonos wireless music system is great. It allows you to stream music from the Internet be it Spotify tracks, the radio, or your own collection, in multiple rooms at the same time all controlled by your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone or a dedicated controller.’

Pocket Lint Read full review

‘The beauty of the Sonos system is that you can start with one speaker attached wirelessly to the Sonos Bridge (which, in turn, is attached to your router by Ethernet cable), and later add more to the system in different rooms – as many speakers as you like up to 32 (in case you happen to live in a palace).’

Tech Radar Read full review

‘Of course, all this is well and good, but with audio equipment it’s sound quality that’s really important. Fortunately, with the Play:3 there’s nothing to worry about at all. As with all other Sonos components, the Play:3 is reassuringly heavy, backing up the gorgeous exterior (available in black or white) that shouts this is a well-made product.’
