FAQ (32)


When pairing my iPhone with the AirBlue - I’ve held the power button down until the blue LED comes on but I can’t find Kanex in the list of devices found by my iPhone. What should I do?
In order for your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or any other Bluetooth equipped device to see the Kanex AirBlue you must first put the Kanex AirBlue into discoverable mode by follow these steps: While the device is off, hold the power button for 6 seconds until the blue LED flashes in fast intervals. (Holding the button down for only 4 seconds turns the AirBlue ON not into discoverable mode, so keep holding the button down for 2 more seconds.) NOTE: After 4 seconds the blue LED will begin to flash, but do


The specifications on the Kanex AirBlue states I’m able to make a connection and play music up to 38ft away, how much farther can I play my music?
The Kanex AirBlue is in fact capable of making a connection up to 38ft away, however, objects such as walls, furniture, or any other obstacles in the way of sight will cause the range to decrease.


I'm very interested in your device and have a question. When paired and playing music, if a phone call comes in will my bluetooth headset kick in and disconnect from the AirBlue (I have an iPhone 4 and this may be more of a function of the phone than your device). Thanks!
No, it should not disconnect from the AirBlue when receiving a phone call, however the music will stop playing when an incoming/outgoing call is made. In Theory, when receiving a call, you would usually select the device in which you would like the audio to come out of.


I have a USB connection in my glove box to my car stereo. Can I connect the AirBlue to this instead of the AUX audio jack? Will it also charge the AirBlue through the USB cable in my car?
The Aux audio jack is require for audio output. Yes the usb will charge the AirBlue and the LED will turn red which indicates charge.


My car has a usb connector that I can plug my iphone into to charge as well as send music through. Can I use the usb connector to charge the device as well as send music?
You can in fact use the USB to charge the device, however you would need to use the aux audio port for audio playback.


Will the AirBlue pair with my MacBook also? I'd rather stream from there than my iPhone the majority of the time.
Yes it will work on any Macbook or devices that have bluetooth audio out.


Pairing AirBlue in my car will it work as playing phone call audio through the stereo speakers as well?
No it will not. The Kanex AirBlue is a Bluetooth music receiver, it does not have functions like a Bluetooth headset/hands free device.


Can I connect a tape adapter to the airblue to use in my car? This would keep me from having to connect the tape adapter to my phone every time I get in the car.
Yes you can. The Airblue will connect to the 3.5mm audio cable coming out from the adapter.


Does AirBlue work with Motorola Droid??
Yes it does. As long as your Smart phone is equipped with Bluetooth, you will be able to connect to the AirBlue.


How do i know when the unit is charging/charged?
The LED on the top of the unit will illuminate red when the unit is charging and will turn off once the unit is fully charged.


Is this device only compatible with Apple products? I have an HTC Thunderbolt and HP Touchpad that I would use it with, and am planning on buying a Samsung Galaxy Nexus to replace the Thunderbolt. Will any Bluetooth device work, or only Apple stuff?
This unit will work fine with any Bluetooth enable device.


Hi. Can i use kanex for voice conversation in my car. Kanex put my music on the speakers but not phone calls? Any advaice for me?
Hello, You can not use the Kanex Airblue as a hands free headset. This unit is designed as a Bluetooth music receiver, not Bluetooth headset.


Is it safe for the AirBlue if it is constantly on charge all the time. As I have usb charging in my car i want to be able to leave it plugged in all the time and not have to worry about it being charged.
Leaving it constantly on charge would not damage the unit, but in long term may affect the performance of your Lithium Ion Battery, it will hold less of a charge. Thanks.


it is asking for a pairing code to connect with my bluetooth device, hp lap top
Yes, a pairing code is required (sometimes)depending on the device. Use 4 zeros: (0000) and you are set to go.


I received the AirBlue as a birthday gift yesterday. I charged the unit over night and was able to see the red light as it charged. It will not turn on when I press the play button. I have tried countless times both plugged and unplugged from the power source. Please help!
Please press and hold the pause/play button for 13 seconds while the unit is off. This will do a factory reset on the AirBlue.

I use it in my car with my iphone 5. Works fairly well. Slight flaw is that when you attempt to use it while having it plugged into a USB power source, it provides a great deal of "feedback" white noise which renders it too frustrating to use. However, when you use it with no power running to it, it works well.

Hi there The one thing I am a bit disappointed about the airblue device is that even at 10 feet away from my ipad the sound cuts in and out for a couple of seconds at times. I tried plugging the device into power at the same time but it didnt make any difference. It is a bit annoying. Otherwise is works fine, but given the cutting out I dont think that I would buy another due to this problem. Thanks for asking and hopefully my feedback will help to find a solution for this problem. Regards Jarrod

1.) I used this product with my ipod touch and laptop. Unfortunately my smartphone cannot be used using Kanex AirBlue due to the incompatibility of the bluetooth (2.0 or 2.1 to 3.0). 2.) I like the product because it saves me time (to set up those cords). 3.) What did you not like about this product? -the version of the bluetooth, that's it. 4.) I hope that the next device/gadget to be used although not the same as this one must have compatibility with 2.0 or 2.1 to 3.0. thank you very much

I have been happy with this product. I travel a fair bit and like to have music in my hotel room. I was looking for a way to remote control my iPhone that I plug into portable speakers. This product lets me plug the speakers into the AirBlue, and use the actual iPhone as the remote. Works great. Sound quality is OK. It's not quite as good as when the speakers are plugged directly into the iPhone but you know that going in. For what it is intended to do, it does it well.

1. I hook it to my home stereo mostly, sometimes I use it in the car. 2. I works, it allows me to control the songs and volume from my iPhone. I have reconnected with my music and love it. 3. Sometimes it can be finiky to pair on startup. Sometimes there's some distortion during song playback (I have to move it to another location). Sometimes there's a humming background noise in the silence between songs. 4. Your instruction manual left a bit to the imagination. Overall I love it and have told many people about it.
