Reviews And Awards - HEOS 5

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound! Technology interface has room to impr The quality of sound is very impressive! This one speaker can fill my house with quality and full range sound! The lack of usability with google music is a big weakness. I find Spotify, pandora, and the other media sources available through HEOS to fall short of google music. I find it surprising this high-end product lacks the basic usability of cheaper Bluetooth speakers. As an example, I should be able to send any audio from my phone to the speaker (YouTube videos, instagram, etc)

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 4 out of 5 by from sound is great but instructions need work the sound is great and the feature to adjust bass and treble from the app is also useful. It has a nice carve-out handle for easy carrying the unit. The Heos app is also fairly user friendly. What's not user friendly are the instructions. They need a lot of work. My unit just stopped connecting and the instructions were worthless. Fortunately it occured during tech support hours and the person was helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality and no fatigue! No Listening fatigue after even hours of listening. I tried a Sonos 5 before my Heos 5 and returned the sonos in 3 hours i was so fatigued. Great value compare to the wireless competitors and a room filling sound. App is now great, no issues there. I'm excited for the coming alexa integration. I subsequently bought a Heos connect for my Living room formal setup. Very happy with how that works too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from for serious listeners also. I am buying the speakers to add to my existing hi-fi system. The little Heos 3s are filling in the gap's all around my home. these little speakers have the ability to get my whole house singing. i plan on buying more three must-have's Denon AVR with HEOs Tidal hi-fi Music streaming service A really good set of speakers if you go with MP3 Music service then everything is a waste of time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Average" Looking. Full review. The HEOS5V2 sounds OUTSTANDING! Better that the (better looking) Sonos or Bose. I have had a bunch of HEOS over the years. It's been a l-o-n-g process for them to work out the kinks. Early on, pathetic. In 2018, it's stable. At this point, any problems you read about are network related. If your network is poor, then you will ALSO have hiccups with any products from Bose, Sonos, etc. For our 2nd home, we bought the HEOS Drive, two HEOS5V2's, and the embedded HEOS in Link in the newer Denon receivers. It works FLAWLESSLY. My highest recommendation. The HEOSV1 (Version 1) had WiFi glitches. The V2 doesn't. The HEOS 7 is more of the same as compared to the HEOS5V2. You pick up a few more Hz on the bottom end. Possibly worth it for big rooms OR if you need/want those extra few Hz. The HEOS3 is on an island and I would not buy one. So go with the HEOS1V2 if you need small or the HEOS 5V2. Skip the HEOS3V2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEOS is the platform to go! When buying wifi, multi-room speaker, we are essentially committing to the platform. This may potentially change once Airplay 2 is released, but I won't count on it. I chose HEOS platform over SONOS, Bluesound, Bose etc. It is most versatile platform with AUX input and bluetooth support allowing potential add ons to support Airplay 1, expand stream service supports beyond SONOS via Google Audiocast etc. Another feature convinced me to go with HEOS series is HEOS 5 and 7 showed low latency/lag with AUX input without WIFI stream play to other speakers whereas SONOS has built in 70 ms delay, and Bose reportedly has similar. Bluesound Pulse 2 had similar delay (tested on my own). So Kudos to HEOS for creating system with low latency. Downside is App, but not a killer. I wish it has better UI like Bluesound or SONOS. Navigation is a bit more user friendly e.g. tapping on button navigation tab should bring all way up to top menu instead of back one menu at a time. Why are they putting config button under music tab? Also, USB compatibility is not as robust as Bluesound. I had issue with WD Mybook and Sabre external enclosure with HEOS but it worked fine in Bluesound. Network stability with disappearing/disconnecting devices randomly on my Orbi network. This was fixed after I switched Orbi to AP mode, and allocating specific channel to 2.4GHz network. This may all be due to Orbi instead of HEOS, but when I had SONOS, I didn't have this issue. HEOS should have option to set only connect to 5GHz network and not 2.4 GHz, which I believe should technically fixed the issue. Another and perhaps major minus point is HEOS/Denon customer service is not helpful. It takes forever to get any reply when submitting issue through HEOS app and most of the replies are useless i.e. asking for more information and wait another days. For instance, SONOS or Bluesound has official forum where users can post question and reply, and also official support person checking the forum regularly. HEOS only has FAQ page, but they are just not helpful. If I weren't into techs and know how to search online extensively and try various different things, I would have ended up returning HEOS devices as one can image, I would have concluded USB drive not functioning, Network drop outs is to blame on HEOS, and lack of number of stream service etc. Denon should create official forum or make customer service better, but I believe latter is difficult to find number of highly qualified people to do that type of job.

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 1 out of 5 by from Great sound/Terrible Software The download software by D & M Holdings crashes Constantly. Using software on my I-Pad and never know if it will control the speaker or not. Have attempted to update software with no improvement. Have owned this Heos 5 for several years and have been unhappy more often than happy because of the poor software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speaker I am a whole home Heos user and could not be more pleased with the Heos 5. The speaker had an excellent flow and design which is very important to me. Secondly, the sound output is outstanding. I researched wireless whole home systems and am very pleased I chose Heos rather than that other "###os".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound For somone used to the older, stereo systems with multiple components, I was a little apprehensive to make the purchase. I am so glad that I did. All the sound that the historical systems produced while a much smaller size. Loving it!! Purchased the EOS1 also and works great out on the patio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound Quality I recently purchased a refurbished HEOS 5 Gen 2 directly from Denon to add to the Gen 1 model I acquired about a year ago - the sound quality on the Gen 2 is awesome - and with the built in Bluetooth capability now a standard on the newer model, Denon have made a great product; truly fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very true sound I've had many Bluetooth speakers so did not expect the power and clarity of these speakers. Very true sound with high clarity, even at high volumes. Combined with the Heos Link, we are listening to vinyl and CDs that we haven't heard for years, because we couldn't hook up wireless speakers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hardware The hardware is fantastic as would be expected from Denon. Nice, rich sound from a relatively small speaker. The app is not horrible but I'm sure could (and will) get better. I could see the frustration with the pairing process, it took me several attempts before pairing was successful.
Date published: 2018-04-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep, rich sound. This speaker has a deep rich sound that completely fills a room with sound. It brings the boom of both highs and lows. I've used my Marantz receiver to stream music and DirecTV to other rooms. It's a staple for streaming music from phones in the gym or outside on the deck.
Date published: 2018-01-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great setup. Little complicated. Great product. Very hard or complicated when you are using multiple components. After you master the controls, it's more of a job to teach everyone in the family to use it. I think it is a great product, I just feel it could be made less complicated..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and flexibility I have my entire house filled with Heos speakers. I love changing the sound in each room and everyone always comments on how good they sound, especially during a loud party. Very happy with them and their quality. Can't go wrong with Heos.

Q&A - HEOS 5

If there is no wifi is there any way to play music from my iphone itunes library?

If I have existing Denon receiver and existing celing speakers....how can I merge those existing speakers so they can play what the Heos playing. Or how can I play from my denon receiver to a HEOS speaker. Is there a wifi distribution device for a Denon?

Asked by: SamR
Hello SamR, You will need a HEOS link. That way your existing system will play the same thing as the HEOS speakers, you'l be able to play everything together. The Link connects to the existing Denon receiver, it is basically a pre-amp for the system.

Hi! Is it possible to connect my HEOS 5 to my tv and use it for tv speakers? 

Asked by: Jojo0804
As Ken C, mentioned it's easy to connect. The issue is in the audio delay. The fine folks at Denon have not enabled control of audio delay in the speaker series. While it's enabled when you pair it with one of their amps or sound bars (and individual speakers as a group), as an individual or as a paired speaker set hardwired, there will be delays (ranging from slight to seconds out of sync depending on your tv's ability to control it).

I'm looking at a Heos 5 (Heos5BKE3) new in the box.  Does this unit also have Bluetooth integration?  There is nothing on the box to indicate that it does.  If not, is there an upgrade option?

Asked by: Lance
The series 1 speakers, which have now been out of production for over a year, do not have built-in Bluetooth, but can support it using a USB Bluetooth adapter, after a firmware update. The Series 2, or "HS2" speakers have Bluetooth built in, and you will see Bluetooth clearly indicated on the box. If in doubt, you may want to contact the dealer to ask. It would be extremely rare for an authorized dealer to still have a series 1 speaker in stock. If this unit is being sold on eBay it's probably not an authorized dealer, therefore there would be no warranty on the product, and it's anybody's guess which series the speaker is. The "BKE3" only indicates color and region, not which series.

How can I rewind using this speaker?  I mainly use for podcasts and I have not been able to figure out how to rewind or fast forward using the app.  Can I pair like a normal speaker and use the podcast app on my phone?

Asked by: Colleen
Hi Colleen. Unfortunately it's not possible to seek through a track or podcast that's stored on your mobile device. It would be best to pair your device to the speaker using bluetooth, then you can use the podcast app to seek through the track.

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.

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?

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.
