The Good: KitSound MyJack has a small & compact size, is affordably priced and performs well.
The Bad: Microphone could have better range — it isn’t great at picking up your voice unless you’re talking in its direction.
The Bottom Line: If you’re stuck on CDs and cabled connections, invest in a MyJack to turn your car stereo wireless.
How do you play music in your car? If you’re still rocking CDs or connecting an AUX cable to your phone, you’ll definitely want to check out the KitSound MyJack: a Bluetooth converter for your car stereo.
By plugging this small adapter into your stereo’s AUX port, you can essentially play music on your car’s stereo via Bluetooth. No more wires involved, and no need to upgrade to an expensive new unit either.
An easy setup process
Setting up the MyJack is incredibly easy. First of all you’ll want to make sure it’s fully charged, but it’s just a case of holding down the button on the MyJack for about 6 seconds until it starts Bluetooth pairing. Head over to your phone’s Bluetooth settings, pair it up with the password provided in the instruction manual and voilà, you’re good to go.
KitSound have provided a short micro USB cable so that you can charge up the MyJack and conveniently, it’s still usable while charging.
There’s also an audio jack extension, so if you don’t want to have the KitSound MyJack poking out of your stereo or dashboard, you can use the extension to keep it out of sight and tidied away. It’s certainly a nice touch that’ll keep cable management obsessives happy.
KitSound MyJack Performance
The speakers in my car are hardly world class, but from my first couple of weeks using the KitSound MyJack I’ve been very pleased with the audio quality.
In terms of connectivity, you’ll need to turn on MyJack whenever you get back to your car. This annoyed me at first, but it does help to preserve battery life so it’s a trade-off worth making. Besides, it’s not as if you have to pair the devices all over again — you just have to press the power button for 2-3 seconds.
Thankfully the KitSound MyJack has been solid in battery life too. For such a small unit, it’s been surprisingly good at lasting a few days at a time before needing a charge.
My one problem with this thing has been the microphone. Whenever I’ve made a call, I find myself having to direct my voice towards the stereo unit so that the other person can hear me. Not the end of the world, but it would have been nice if the microphone had better range.
Should you buy one?
Totally. If you’re stuck on CD’s or using a cable to play music from your smartphone, KitSound’s MyJack is going to be an inexpensive and easy way to turn your car wireless.
