Our take on the Cambridge Audio G2 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Small enough to fit anywhere, the Cambridge Audio G2 (pictured in champagne) delivers big sound.
Small footprint, full sound
Grab the Cambridge Audio G2 in one hand and take your tunes everywhere. This durable little speaker plays music wirelessly from your phone or tablet via Bluetooth. It belts out lots of detailed sound for its size. A high efficiency Class D amplifier powers two drivers, while two bass radiators reinforce the low end. Its solid, wrapped aluminum body is built to stand up to life on the go, and it eliminates unwanted vibrations for clearer sound. Advanced digital signal processing (DSP) keeps your music sounding crisp, even at high volume.
Twice as nice
Need it louder? Wirelessly pair two G2s to stream music simultaneously. You can play your tunes with even more volume.
Share the power
The G2's built-in rechargeable battery can deliver up to 10 hours of continuous operation. You can borrow some of that to recharge your smartphone or portable music device. Simply plug the device into the speaker's USB port.
A traveling speakerphone
Smartphones have so many apps and music options these days, it's easy to forget their primary function — making and taking calls. The Cambridge Audio G2 can help here, too. Rather than toggling back to your phone's inferior speaker, simply hit the flashing "phone" button and use the G2 as a speakerphone. You'll be able to hear the person on the other end clearly, and the G2's built-in microphone lets you talk back to them with ease.

The G2 is compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled devices like Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphones/tablets, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computers, and other devices which offer Bluetooth connectivity.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Cambridge Audio G2 Bluetooth portable speaker.

You will continue to control your music and view song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled device. Volume can be controlled from the G2 speaker.
Hands-Free Speakerphone: With Bluetooth HFP and a built-in microphone the G2 can be used to answer and make phone calls from your paired Bluetooth-enable smartphone. If you have an incoming call the G2's phone button will flash and a simple press of that button will answer the call from the G2. If you make a call from your paired Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, the G2 will automatically switch to speakerphone mode. The built-in speakerphone will carry on your side of the conversation, while the other party is heard the G2's speakers. The G2's speakerphone feature is deal for a quick hands-free and conference calls.
Note: You cannot use the Cambridge Audio G2 to dial a phone number; you will still need to use your smartphone to make a call and then the call will be transferred over to the G2 as long as your smartphone is paired.
Secure Simple Pairing + NFC: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth-enabled device to the Cambridge Audio G2 Bluetooth portable speaker system with a single button press and without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. The Bluetooth speaker also supports NFC (Near-Field Communication) technology for pairing; simply tap your NFC-enabled Android (OS 4.0+) smartphone to the NFC tag on top of the speaker for instant pairing with the G2. A total of 4 devices can be paired with the Cambridge Audio G2, but only one device can be used at a time.
Dual-Mode: It is possible to synchronize two G2 speakers together so that both will play back your music simultaneously. The two G2 speakers must be within 30' of each other.
Aux Input: The Cambridge Audio G2 Bluetooth portable speaker is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a non-Bluetooth portable device with a headphone jack or analog audio output.
USB Charging Port: You can use the convenient USB type-A port (5V/1A) to charge your smartphone or MP3 player from the G2's own battery on the move, or when it's connected to AC power at home.
Rechargeable Battery: The G2 uses a high capacity lithium-ion battery that can play for up to 10 hours from a single charge. In addition, the G2 uses intelligent battery management software to optimize life and minimize charging time. The included AC power adapter is used to charge the G2's battery, as well as supply power to the portable speaker system. The G2's battery should be charged for 4 hours before initial use.
Low Battery Indicator + Auto Power Down: A flashing red LED indicates that the battery is too low and the G2 will enter a standby mode where no music can be played. This LED will continue flashing for 10 minutes after which the G2 will turn off. To save power, the G2 will automatically turn off after approximately 30 minutes if no music is playing.
