The acquisition of a car, it came with a CD Player Pioneer modelo DEH-6800MP. It's a nice model, known as the “dolphin”, because of an animation that could be shown in display. The display is large, because the CD input is hidden behind the motorized front. The sound is excellent.

But, the DEH-6800MP It came up with a default: CD curls up in time to get out and not out. Needs some repair. Furthermore, It is a model without auxiliary input, sem Bluetooth, and unsupported to stick.

so I opted to remove the DEH-6800MP and install an older model I've ever had, at DEH-3880MP, also excellent sound, but also has a defeitinho: the menu for reinforcement does not come more acute, HE knows-because. But at least the CD Player is 100%. By not having auxiliary input, Bluetooth e USB, CD Player ends up being essential, it supports CDs, and also CD-Rs with MP3 files (among other formats). It is the only way to choose what to listen.

The Prevention because Bluetooth Player Multifuncao, that I showed here in Skooter Blog, circumvents some of these limitations, offering support for Bluetooth, flash drive and SD card. But, It is not the ideal solution, for transmission via FM just introducing some noise and possible interference.

Putting a modern car radio this was something that was on my wish list for a year, but I always postponed. I do not like to invest much in car sound, that is on the street, It can be stolen and is uninsured.

But the opportunity to acquire the Car Audio Pioneer CD MP3 Player AM / FM – Bluetooth USB Auxiliar DEH-X500BR with Livelo points came in quite handy.

Choose Model

Chose the Car Audio Pioneer CD MP3 Player AM / FM – Bluetooth USB Auxiliar DEH-X500BR By also be Pioneer, the brand that is a leader in this segment, and also be a natural evolution of DEH-3880MP and DEH-6800MP.

First considered buying a model only Media Player, without support optical media, because nowadays only use Bluetooth. But my wife still has several CDs and CD-Rs, so I opted for DEH-X500BR.

The DEH-X500BR It has pretty much everything I sought: Bluetooth, USB, Front Aux, equalizer, RGB display panel to match any, etc.

I noticed that the power 4x 23W is lower than that of DEH-3880MP and DEH-6800MP, that are of 4 x 50W. But researching a bit just concluding that it is the same thing. 4x50W is the maximum output power, while 4x 23W is the continuous output power. They failed to inform the maximum power and started to inform the ongoing, which is the most useful and most honest.

Anyway, even 4x 23W is still a little bar forçação, it considers a distortion of 10% THD, which in practice is a terrible distortion and no one wants to listen to good music as well. Then, in practice, the actual power with acceptable distortion is still less. But for the speakers original kits of most cars the sound of DEH-X500BR is of good size. Who wants to push higher power speakers need to install a separate power module.

Livelo Points

The Car Audio Pioneer CD MP3 Player AM / FM – Bluetooth USB Auxiliar DEH-X500BR It costs me 25.900 Livelo points, including the freight. The partner who made the delivery was the Magazine Luiza, shop where I would spend R $ 447,41 to purchase it in cash at the time of writing this article, including freight. In the invoice the amount placed was R $ 503,89.

Considering the value of the note, each point earned R $ 0,019. How do I get a 1,2 points for every dollar spent on the card, and considering a dollar from R $ 3,92, each point comes from R $ 3,27 spending on the card. Therefore, this acquisition is the result of a return 0,5% what was spent on the card.


Magazine Luiza put the box Car Audio Pioneer CD MP3 Player AM / FM – Bluetooth USB Auxiliar DEH-X500BR in a plastic bag without any additional protection. Because of this, the box arrived with a small dent in one of the corners, but without any damage to the product.

The sealed box shaft, and highlights the main characteristics of the equipment: compatibility with Bluetooth, iPhone, Android, Spotify, Connection for two cell, Link hands-free and streaming of music, 2 RCA outputs (pre-out), equalizer 13 bands, USB for fast charging, and input to control wheel.

In the back stands out the “effect inspired by DJ”, including Flashing Light, the MIXTRAX and the Dynamic Bass Enhancer. There is also emphasis on the Bluetooth functionality and application Pioneer Smart Sync, allowing easy access to navigation apps, reading messages and equalizer adjustment 31 bands. also highlights included accessories: microphone and remote control.

Inside the box I found the CD Player, case forward, remote control, removing screws and rods, microphone, whip, and instruction manual with warranty certificate. The CD Player with the belt shaft, removable front and coupled frame.

The remote control is compact, but lets you control most functions, including call answering via Bluetooth.

The bolts are used depending on where the CD Player It will be installed. I have not used. The rods serve to remove it easily strap. These rods are different from that came with the rods DEH-3880MP. It is good to guard them well.

The microphone must be connected to the back of the CD Player, and installed in a location that is good to capture the voice of the driver. It comes with a plug-in for sun visor, which ended up being useful to fit in the car's own liner.

The harness noticed some differences from the DEH-3880MP and or DEH-6800MP. I first noticed that the wires are thinner now. Then I noticed that the connector side DEH-X500BR It is different from the other two. The other two are equal. I noticed though now there are separate connectors for speakers and the rest, as in cars. In ancient was a connector where only fit two car connectors.

Por fim, I noticed that the new harness has a wire for post-lighthouse (white and orange), which serves to reduce the brightness of the display when the light is on. This is useful to prevent glare obstruct the driver when it is dark, and run at full power when it is clear. Unfortunately the legislation that requires us to walk with the headlights on in full sun from noon gets in the way this feature.

The red wire, Yellow and Blue continue with plugs among them that enable interrupts them and reverse yellow and red as the car in which the CD Player will be installed.

The installation of the Car Audio Pioneer CD MP3 Player AM / FM – Bluetooth USB Auxiliar DEH-X500BR It was quiet. I've had the experience of previous installations and already knew wiring scheme on the car harness. So it was only making connections Lashes, Remote blue wire that has a separate cable, antenna, placing tape, etc.

As always caught the whips with nylon clamps, and I spent tape at all to prevent the wires are accidentally cut.

The most laborious part was installing the microphone. I chose to put it on the roof liner, with the wire through the rubber seal and then under panel, surrounding the steering bar, until you reach the radio bay.

After installation just did the update firmware which is available on the Pioneer website, using a USB stick. The update took a few minutes. After that I did a series of tests, playing music with MP3 CD-R, com Bluetooth, with stick, everything running perfectly. I also made some adjustments to make the audio to my taste, and made connections with the phone using the feature hands free and it also worked perfectly. The display properly showed the metadata of both tags MP3 when sent by mobile phone via Bluetooth, and call information. yet installed application Pioneer Smart Sync in my Android Z Play Bike and tested the most basic features.

I did not do much in-depth testing and there are still many features that not tested or not explored right, but all I could test, the Car Audio Pioneer CD MP3 Player AM / FM – Bluetooth USB Auxiliar DEH-X500BR He did not disappoint me at all.
