HEOS 3 by Denon: Bass King
There’s no place like home with a good surround sound system. That said, Denon, a Japanese electronics company, introduced the HEOS 3 by Denon in 2014. The HEOS 1 is the smallest among the HEOS audio Hi-Fi wireless speakers system which includes the HEOS 3, the midsized HEOS 5 and the biggest in the family, the HEOS 7.
The HEOS 3 sports the strangest shape in the HEOS line. It measures 271mm wide, 129mm tall, 165mm deep, and weighs 1.9kg. Featuring an irregular hexagonal cross-section that shifts between sides, the speaker comes with a silver HEOS logo that sits on the upper right-corner when placed vertically and lower-right when placed horizontally.
The HEOS 3 comes with a rubber feet that helps it stand firmly. Sitting on the top of the speaker are controls that include the volume rocker and the mute button.
Flipping on its back, the HEOS 3's back pane holds a screw hole so that it can be mounted on the wall, a port for the drivers, USB, 3.5mm, LAN, and power terminal, and two separate buttons to connect or reset the speaker.
The hexagonal shape of the sides help in the convenient placement of the speaker, whether it is in a horizontal or a vertical position.
Connectivity and features
The HEOS 3 is a speaker designed for medium-sized rooms. To pair a compatible device such as a smartphone or a tablet with the speaker through Bluetooth connection, simply press the Bluetooth button on the rear side of the speaker and wait for the two green light to blink on the rubber feet. The HEOS 3 has a mobile application that allows users to play and organize songs into playlists. This app can be downloaded through Apple's App Store or Google Play.
Sound quality and conclusion
Upon playing some songs with heavy bass, we had noticed right away that the HEOS 3 produced exceptional deep bass sound. Acoustic songs are very satisfying to hear when playing with the HEOS 3. With its volume adjusted to the maximum level, the HEOS 3 didn’t produce distorted sound and the details of songs are clear. This speaker can fill a medium-sized room such as bedroom, kitchen, or an office.
Given its size and being a speaker that is capable of producing exceptional bass and clear music details, the HEOS 3 by Denon is easy to consider as a choice when planning to buy a speaker for medium-sized room. But with its price of PhP 23,500, some might find it too expensive. In any case, finding another speaker model that can produce the same audio quality at a lower price point shouldn't be a hard task to do.
