Please note that if you have a large number of Apps open in your smartphone or tablet, this may block or overtax its processor. Dropouts may result. Try to close all or most active apps. This should solve the problem. \n\n2. Bluetooth signals from smartphones and tablets are not very strong. Make sure that the signal does not have to pass through doors, walls etc. Always maintain a clear line of sight between \ntransmitter and receiver. \n\n3. Do not carry your smartphone in your pocket, if you have dropouts. Your body can act as a screen, reducing the strength of the Bluetooth signal. Put the phone on a table or other surface. \n\n4. Do not walk around while listening. If the transmitter and the receiver are moved in relation to each other, dropouts occur more frequently.\n\n5. Under normal circumstances, you can expect a range of 5 meters with no problems, if you follow the above advice. In some instances range is longer, but we cannot promise this."},{"attributes":{"type":"FAQ__kav","url":"/services/data/v43.0/sobjects/FAQ__kav/ka0i0000000kEnaAAE"},"Title":"How can I see which firmware version is installed on my Aura Studio 2?","Id":"ka0i0000000kEnaAAE","ArticleNumber":"000006804","ArticleType":"FAQ__kav","Question__c":"How can I see which firmware version is installed on my Aura Studio 2?","Answer__c":"By pressing and holding the \"Volume+\" and \"Bluetooth\" button together for 5 seconds.

Hi, how to clean the speaker, because it have something into it

Asked by: hathaphone
Hi there, thanks for asking. While there are screws behind the feet, we don't recommend opening it, as it could be dangerous and will void your warranty. The only solution we can recommend, if a foreign object falls into the&nbsp;AURA Studio, is&nbsp;to&nbsp;try&nbsp;to&nbsp;shake it out through the bass tube.
