You'll also be able to control basic playback functions; such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, and Volume Up/Down from the VG-5 speaker.
    • Codecs: In addition to supporting Bluetooth's standard SBC codec, the VG-5 lets you enjoy high-quality Qualcomm aptX (compatible with most Androids) & AAC (compatible with iPhone) audio codecs, so you can enjoy the highest quality sound that is rich and crystal clear.
    • Pairing: The VG-5 supports SSP (Simple Secure Pairing) & NFC (Near Field Communication) to wirelessly connect your devices. Simple Secure Pairing allows you to wirelessly pair most Bluetooth device without having to enter a pin-code. Near Field Communication allows you to wirelessly pair Android OS 4.0+ and other devices that support NFC by simply touching the device to the VG-5 speaker. You can pair up to 8 Bluetooth source devices to the VG-5, but only one device can be connected at a time for wireless music playback.

Note: The Soundcast VG-5 does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for phone calls.

  • Aux Input: In addition to wireless Bluetooth connectivity, the Soundcast VG-5 is outfitted with a 3.5mm aux input for connecting a portable audio player with an analog or headphone output. The VG-5 will automatically switch over to the Aux source when an audio device is plugged into the 3.5mm input. The Aux input is protected by a rubber cover.
  • Stereo 360º Sound: The Soundcast VG-5 is equipped with two 3" full-range drivers and one 6" long-throw woofer powered by a 24-bit DSP controlled Class-D 70W amplifier for clean, clear stereo sound at any volume level.
    • Dual 3" Full-Range Drivers: The two 3" full-range drivers are configured in a stereo 360º array for immersive sound. Each full-range driver features an aluminium cone, butyl rubber surround, and a high SPL Neodymium motor design.

  • AC or Battery Power: The included rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack (2600mAh) provides up to 10 hours of playback (varies by volume level). The included battery pack can be recharged using the included AC power adapter. The AC power adapter can also be used to supply power to the speaker for playback. A LED indicator will light red when charging and will turn orange when fully charged. When low on power, the LED indicator will blink red.
