    Well Designed, Incredible Performance

    When I first purchased Clio, I was amazed at how versatile the design was; no matter where I placed Clio, it would blend in just about anywhere in my home. I am a strong believer in less is more, but also in performance and efficiency. Well I am pleased to say that Clio does indeed deliver. Clio produces a crisp quality of sound and has exceeded my expectations in that respect. I have tried quiet a variety of musical genres with Clio, and must say that I received a superb level of sound from each track. There is one thing I will admit however, I am not very crazy about bass heavy sound tracks, that is not to say that Clio does not deliver enough bass, but listening to Classical, Folk, Classic Rock, 80's Rock, and even just use as Bluetooth enabled desktop speakers, provided a sound that was better than what I had initially expected, so much so that I would actually purchase another in the near future. I also must say that I love surround sound stereo systems and that is just what I got thanks to the 360 degrees of sound Clio produces.The fact that it is hands free and turns on automatically when I turn on my desktop and pairs with Bluetooth is a plus as well. Overall I recommend this product to all audio lovers and I hope that Clearview will continue their innovations and come out with more products in the future.

    Elegant sound and elegant look

    I'm a musician and a member of a family of professional musicians. We're all very particular about sound quality, and we've always had to compromise on aesthetics for good sound - until now. We have a Clio and we're all blown away by the quality of this amazing technology. The sound is rich and clear and gives you that "studio sound" that our other speakers never produced. (And we have had a lot of sound equipment over the years). I believe that the confluence of great sound and beautiful design will make this not just the "go to" for musicians, but for interior designers and discerning individuals who would rather not have to sacrifice the elegant look of their living space for an amazing listening experience. I'm glad I've got mine before they sell out!

    Neat Product, Fantastic Service

    I didn't purchase my Clio directly from ClearView, and the product I received was defective. It functioned when plugged into a source, but it would not pair via Bluetooth. I contacted the place I purchased it from, and they put me in contact with the ClearView Support Team. I have nothing but glowing comments for the response. After a brief, cordial email exchange, a new unit was shipped to me immediately, and it works beautifully. The return of the malfunctioning unit was extremely easy and paid for by ClearView. I look forward to enjoying the great Clio sound now.

    Amazing!

    What an amazing speaker! I am so in love with the Clio. The sound quality is amazing! It really does blend in with the local decor that it is placed next too. I hate that it is going in a box and being sent away! I would have loved to have kept it!
    I received a sample for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

    For a man that appreciates the finer things

    Co-worker has it in her office. It sounds so terrific! I cannot wait to buy one for my boyfriend who has a special passion for music & technology!

    stylish look and wonderful sound

    we ar enjoying the new clearview clio speaker in our kitchen, where we have no need for BIG speaker systems... the clio is a pefect combination of reduced stylish fanciness and gives us a perfect fancy sound to our kitchen performance! Thanks for this great product!

    Clean Sound

    I just took the Clio out of its packaging and within five minutes I was enjoying fantastic sound. I figured I would put it through some paces on the low end. Stanley Clarke's bass sounded rich and deep. The ultimate test was Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody because of the noticeable left and right channel vocals. The speaker handled the song magically. Not only is the sound vibrant but it is a wonderfully aesthetic piece that compliments any room and decor. Totally satisfied.

    Speakers talk to two senses beautifully--visual and auditory

    This speaker sounds like a pair and floats nearly invisibly in space. I did not even have to open a manual to figure out how to set it up. This product is elegant and simple; if it were a character from Shakespeare, it would be Ariel from The Tempest.

    What an AWESOME product!

    So I had a dinner party the same evening that I opened the box and set up my Clio in 10 minutes... and the "beautiful, invisible speaker" was an even bigger hit than my Beef Tenderloin with Mushroom Ragout. If you've eaten my cooking, you'll know this is heady praise indeed ;-))

    The crisp, clear high notes, the rounded, full base notes and the terrific multi-directional output impressed everyone (and, I hope, will generate some more sales for you): the audiophiles wanted it because it sounded radically cool, the non-audiophiles wanted it because it was pretty and didn't look like a speaker... I think you guys have a hit on your hands! Well done!

    Great customer service

    Their customer service is amazing. I had a Bluetooth issue with my Clio and they got back to me immediately and then sent a replacement unit promptly.
    I am very impressed.

    Fantastic

    We just plugged in the Clio and could not be happier. It was out of the box, plugged in and paired in 2 minutes. We first placed it on credenza under TV and it looked great among the pictures there. Then we moved it to a ledge between the kitchen and family room and it filled both rooms with a big bright sound.

    We really love this speaker and highly recommend it.

    large sound

    A professor of music (teaches and composes piano) joined us for dinner last night, and then played for the group. Afterwards, I turned on our new Clio and played the same piece from our archived collection. While of course not the same as a live performance, it was stunningly close! This wowed the group, and our friend asked where the the sound was coming from...and I pointed out the Clio on our side table, where it was invisible. Needless to stay, this surprised him, and he asked where he could buy one. I am pleased to recommend the Clio, and in fact it is now our "go to" gift for family this Christmas.

    Love this product!

    Our office was lucky enough to receive one of the first Clios - we LOVE it! Even with the clear design, the sophisticated sound quality definitely gets noticed!

    Sounds great. Looks better.

    I was one of the early adopters of the Clio and I couldn't be more happy to have it in my office. It sounds excellent and is a talking point for anybody who hears and sees it!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

"... Clio is the ninja of speakers, effectively disappearing while still pumping out 360-degree sound. ... Always practical, always great to listen to, never an eyesore"

- Entertainment Weekly

"Hearing true stereo audio emanate from a thin, acrylic pane is a marvel that just doesn't compute to most minds. The tech that makes it possible, Edge Motion®, is actually a clever bit of physical wizardry."

- Men's Journal

"Now, it is rather chic to have your music seemingly coming from nowhere. These ultra-minimal speakers work that out for you perfectly—technology’s version of a little nothing dress."

-Vanity Fair

 
 

"For the office, at home, or wherever he finds himself in need of a little music, these speakers not only sound great but they're incredibly modern looking."

- Men's Fitness

"ClearView Audio has a different take on 'invisible' with its stylish Clio Bluetooth speaker, which uses acrylic glass to create sound. No domes, no cones, except for a tiny 2-inch 'woofer' hidden in the base that supports what you might call its sonic windshield."

- Sound & Vision

"The ClearView Audio Clio looks more like a modernist picture frame than a Bluetooth speaker. ... In a crowded Bluetooth speaker market, it certainly offers a refreshing departure ..."

- Wired

 
 

"The Clio's combination of innovative ideas and practical application make it our standout audio product ..."
