“Not that great.” The sound is good, but it's overpriced. I've had some distortion problem after 12m (and a wall) but in overhaul it's a good product. I would really recommend it if it was half price though. at this price, you can probably found better, or just as good for way less.

“Perfect sound with ease” It is so easy to set this up, plug in the electric cord, plug in the chip-thing into an iPad etc, and start the music!
The sound is great!
The only improvement they can do is a cordless variant.

“Libratone: Wonderful, Stylish, Nice... it makes music worth listening!!!” I remember perfectly the day I saw Libratone for the first time: in the house of a friend. It took me 5seconds to understand what I had to do next: buy my own Libratone too.

And when they asked me why buy this and not any other type, the first words I could say were: Because this is not just a speaker, this is THE speaker, this is the technology product which makes music worth listening since the sounds it produces it's perfect.

Even connected with the TV is making the movies-watching a magic moment,almost like being in the cinema!!

And let's not talk about parties: you get the best out of the night because you manage to play the music with an incredible sound and you can carry your Libratone everywhere, since it is so light and compact, and moreover because you only need a plug to let it work and you can bring it anywhere, and connect it in a wireless, cable-free way to any device: mobile phone, I-pad, Pc, TV... In few words: anywhere you need it to be connected!

Moreover, Libratone is cool because it has the coolest look: it doesn't look just like a speaker! Having it in you living room, kitchen or bedroom it looks like a nice piece of furniture!!

So, to summarize why I love Libratone: cause it's wonderful, stylish, nice... and it makes music worth listening!!!

“amazing sound” I am thoroughly impressed with the Libratone Live. It has rich sound and is small enough to be moved from room to room. While I think it does best with jazz and classical, any type of music will be done justice on the Live. It does take a few days to "break in" but I have been impressed over and over by the richness and fullness of the sound coming from this thing. While it is by no means a replacement for a multi-speaker system, it is the best portable speaker I have heard and used. Setup is easy and fast. I would highly recommend the Live to anyone. I just wish I could afford more for other rooms!

“Nice feel, nice look, easy setup.” Don't expect the richest sound and the largest range compared to an actual high-end audio setup. BUT as an addition for your bedroom, your kitchen and - in my case - your balcony you have arrived with this speaker.

Most surprising thing? I am in no sense tech savvy, but was able to set it up in under 10 minutes.

Most enjoyable thing? I didn't expect to want to carry it around t0 different locations in my apartment, but it is surprisingly mobile - and the touch and feel of the product makes you want to grab it.

Only disappointing thing? Why doesn't it have a battery? That should be an easy and straightforward update.

“Fantastic sound, quality and looks.” This speaker comes dangerously close to being the best thing i own.
Iv'e had my live for almost three months now, and have absolutely nothing negative to say.
The sound is amazing, the looks, well, its stunning.

I love the great libratone app, with the voicing and the FullRoom optimization.
You can say it's a kinda stiff price, but hey. This is worth every money you pay.

“Wireless perfection” Amazing! Not only was it easy to set up, it's ridiculously stylish.
The style is simply but modern. You may not notice it in the room, but once the tunes start flowing, it's hard to avoid. The full room effect makes the smallest room seem big, and the biggest room seem intimate.
Friends have asked me to bring it over whenever we get together. Thanks to the handle and dust cover. No problem!
Best investment. Ever.

“Libratone Live” I have to say that the design is supeb and setting up is easy as hell. This sleak speaker gives you very very good sound and even my Hi-Fi friend approved the full room sound, which is something. ;-) The only minus for this speaker is that it doens't support the latest n-standard for wireless networks. I'm sure this will be fixed in near future.

“Quality item” I recently set up a Libratone Live for my 60 year old mom, who bought it on my recommendation. I went over to set it up for her, and was truly surprised by the overall quality of the experience.
First thing that strikes you is the weight. It's really quite heavy, as any sound making component should be. Next, you notice the attention to detail in the felt cover, the buttons, the overall finish. It's so obviously a luxury item.
Last, the setup is a breeze. It took me maybe 5 or 6 minutes, including unboxing, figuring out exactly where to put it, plugging it in, downloading the app to my moms iPhone and well - hearing it play.
Sound is surprisingly well balanced and evenly distributed in the room.
My mom uses it every day for both radio and Spotify, and couldn't be happier.
What can say? Pricey, sure, but worth it, in my humble opinion :)

“No more mess” I got rid of the huge amplifier, cd, radio and loudspeakers. Libratone cleaned up the living room without compromising sound quality. Love it. Thank you.

“High Quality, Low Profile, Awesome Design, Incredible Service” I'm in a relatively small apartment, so unfortunately the bigger Libratones are too large for me. I bought the Beat first, and it worked phenomenally well. But soon after I bought the Beat, I upgraded to the iPhone 5, which of course does not have the 30-pin connector anymore....

So I upgraded to the Libratone Live. Everything was going fine until I tried to upgrade the firmware, and I got stuck in a loop. Nothing I did permitted the system to work.

So I emailed support, and within two days I had a pre-paid box and label to ship my speaker to Europe. It was fixed, and sent back three days later. ABSOLUTELY FREE!

Truly impressive service.

I recommend the Live for the sound and style for someone in an apartment my size, but I recommend Libratone almost exclusively for standing behind their luxury product.

“Perfect!” First I bought the Sonos system but I did not like the Sonos-app. Returned it and kept looking for a susbstitute. Found Libratone Live and fell in love with it! I live in i rather small apartment and the sound for that apartment is definately perfect. If I stand in the kitchen the sound is the same as when I'm standing in front of the speaker. And plus it looks good!! Sometimes I have some problems connecting to the speaker but I guess that's not really a problem with the speaker, rather my crappy wi-fi at home....
So go and buy, it's a no-brainer!!!

“Great sound and beautiful design” The Libratone Live gives great sound in a compact and beautiful design. I would not hesitate to recommend the Libratone product line to any of my friends, it is most certainly a great purchase.
The only minus of playing wirelessly is the delay when you want to skip a track, I guess that is the price for creating innovative and forefront products.

“LIBRATONE LIVE” "Less is more" & "Brevity is the soul of wit" ! such is the case for this sublime piece of audio equipment : rich natural & neutral enveloping sound from a discrete aesthetically pleasing shape and texture ... surprising for a piece of technology to have all these qualities in one object ... and the relationship between the line-in from my tv and then automatically switching to my iphone/ipad wirelessly with no wire swapping is great ; a very happy purchase Thanx !

“Ticks all the boxes with syle” Perfect speaker the new wifi world. Gone are the days of 'docking' you phone or Ipad....we want to use them at the same time as streaming music so we can instgram every angle of this Scandanavian beauty! Simple to set up, super portable and compact vertical format you can move it around your room to suit your day and the 3D sound means it sounds great no matter where you are. Did I mention the looks! There is really no competion for the money, can't recommend it more.

“Excellent Sound Quality” The product is fairly simple to set up and install, and interfacing is quite easy to get up and running. The software (iPhone app) is very easy to use, and with a little patience, the installation will be easy for everyone, beginners as well as experienced users.
Only "complaint" is that the WiFi radio connection is a bit sensitive and have a tendency to loose connection on and off if the speaker is located with the back pointed away from where the WiFi gateway is.

“High Five !!” Buy plug-in play !!

That simple and yet so great sound. My expectations have been more than fulfilled, the sound are impressive and the design a true scandinavian pearl.

“Best speaker on the market! Airplay is the Future” High quality sound is one thing but this speaker also excels in its appearance, functionality & portability! If you're buying wired speakers today you're just setting yourself up to be 'out-dated'. Airplay & DLNA technology is the future.

“Perfect product” The best value among all the Libratone products and AirPlay devices overall. The style and feel of the product is amazing down to the power cable. It works almost flawlessly all the time. I got one for my parents and they were able to set it up without help—high praise for ease-of-use!

“Absolutely splendid!!” The sound is incredible from this good looking speaker. We had some problems in the beginning with our usb to the bluetooths, but Libratone support gave us excellent service. Answers qustions fast and easy tips to follow. Now the speaker is working perfectly and family/friends are impressed over the design and sound!! We will extend our Libratone family as soon as the economy allows it, never again will we use 2 speakers !

“Zdenek” Libratone Live:
The product I am very satisfied.
I appreciate the spatial spread of the music signal.
This type does not allow stereo, which does not matter because it is designed for listening while moving rooms.

“High performance and design” A really good speaker with all the nice features you need. The only thing that could be better, is when it's connnected to TV, it only goes to stand by 30 minutes after you turn off the TV. That's a strange feature. Hope it will be changed with a new update. But I really love my Libratone Live and the sound it creates in my livingroom with my iPhone and TV - just amazing :-)

“Elegance, style & fantastic service” The Libratone Live is an amazingly designed product. I live in a small apartment where space is a premium. In addition to the speaker being visually interesting, it delivers amazing sound. I love the versatility of the unit. I can use Airplay to stream audio from my iPhone, Mac or Apple TV. I can also use the optical audio cable to attach my PS3 for Blu Ray movies and gaming. My decision to purchase the Libratone Live is reaffirmed everyday. It is a wonderful and unique product.

“Simply amazing!” There philosophy simply one is enough suits perfectly!

“What else ? :)” From design to sound quality, this product is stunning. It is at the same time gorgeous, super-easy to set up/use/enjoy, and once I even used it as a pillow to fall asleep on it on the couch… Okay, this feature wouldn't be worth a 5-star rate but it is really amazing. Even the carton box has a wonderful design. Ah oh, one more thing : the sound. Polyphonic 360° makes you feel surrounded by the waves of music (now, I understand better why I fell asleep listening to great cool music that very night… :) )

“The star of the room” To make our brand new kitchen perfect, we desided to add some color and sound with a Libratone Live in lime green. Not only was it set up and playing loud and clear within 2 minutes, but it has also since then been the favorite talkingpoint of all guests visiting us to see the new house and kitchen. Everyone is amased at the quality but even more that it plays everything you throw at it from any device that can connect to a wifi. Only downside being - now we want one for every room in the house :-)

These speakers are easy to set up, look awesome in any location and simply sound sensational with sufficdient base and high quality high end and mid range tones! These are just terrificly stylish objects to own and live with and the quality build makes them a welcome addition to any home! Only downside - I can't yet afford the 'Lounge'!

“Incredible flexible sound!” You will never think of a portable speaker the same, after you've heard the Libratone Live, live!

It's an absolutely incredible sound that you would, it hits the right spots and has the good deep sound as well - AirPlay functionality and "cordless" speakers are definitely the future. I can't imagine myself without a Libratone Live, ever again.

  • Ease of use

    Once AirPlay is set up, all you need to do is make sure your Libratone Live is turned on. It starts playing, when you press play. Remember: In our world wireless always trumps wires, so the audio you stream overrules the mini-jack connection.
