Questions & Answers

  • Question:

    Can I pair 2 of the 512 speakers together as a left and right stereo setup with 1 source?

    Answer:

    The 512 is not designed to function as a pair, however, depending on what source you use this may be possible! We have tested pairing some Android phones  with 2 of the 512s by selecting "dual audio" in the Bluetooth settings on the phone. Some phones/sources will allow you to connect to multiple Bluetooth devices at once by doing this.

  • Question:

    Is it possible with the 512 to play music and charge the battery at the same time?

    Answer:

    Yes! The charger plugs into a micro USB charging port, leaving the aux input or Bluetooth open for use at the same time!

  • Question:

    Is my 512 water-resistant?

    Answer:

    No, but for good reason! This is something we struggled with when developing the 512. Our engineers choose materials based on what will provide a high quality sound, and using water-resistant materials would have a negative effect on that. It was a tough decision to make, but if we have to compromise on something, sound quality is not going to be it!

  • Question:

    Are Audioengine products compatible with Bluetooth 5.0?

    Answer:

    Yes! We incorporate all the relevant functions and features from Bluetooth 5.0 that apply to our products! These features include; extended range, low latency (so that video and audio sync properly), as well as higher level aptX-HD, aptX, and AAC codecs. Keep in mind that the capability of the source is what controls the Bluetooth experience.

  • Question:

    How easy is it to set up the Audioengine 512?

    Answer:
    • Press and hold the power button to turn on the speaker; the 512 will automatically go into pair mode.
    • On your source device, turn on Bluetooth and select “Audioengine 512” to pair and connect.
    • Play your music. Setup really is this easy!
  • Question:

    What does the button with the Bluetooth icon mean?

    Answer:

    The Bluetooth icon button controls the speaker’s pair mode and also acts as an indicator. When the button is flashing, the speaker is currently in pair mode and open to connect to a device. If the button is solid, it means a device is currently connected to the speaker. In order to disconnect a device from the speaker, you can press and hold the button until you hear the notification that the speaker is in pair mode.

  • Question:

    Does the 512 only work via Bluetooth?

    Answer:

    Nope! The 512 features an analog input so you can connect your audio source to the speaker using a standard mini-stereo cable.

  • Question:

    Do I need to install any special software apps or drivers for the 512?

    Answer:

    No extra software or drivers are needed. The 512 is compatible with any device that supports Bluetooth, and the A2DP profile for streaming stereo audio. This includes most smartphones, tablets, and computers.

  • Question:

    Can I control the volume through the volume controls of my source device?

    Answer:

    Yes, you can control the volume from the audio source itself as well as the volume buttons on the top of 512.

  • Question:

    How long does the 512’s battery last once charged?

    Answer:

    While battery life will depend somewhat on the volume you're using the 512 at, typical battery life of the 512 is up to 12 hours.

  • Question:

    How can I tell how much charge my 512 has?

    Answer:

    On the top of the 512, there are three lights that tell you how much charge the 512’s battery has.

  • Question:

    Can I use a subwoofer with the 512?

    Answer:

    The 512 was designed to be a sort of stand-alone Bluetooth speaker and also has a mini-stereo input; because of this, it doesn't have any outputs to connect to a powered subwoofer, such as the S8.
