In 2017, we met so many so fancy stereos to review. A lot of features and a lot of cool stuff to hang around with.
But, what if you want a simple but powerful car stereo that doesn’t cost you a lot but you get the hang of playing your favorite music whatever the device it is on?!
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Right?
I understand this because I have seen so many people don’t like a lot of features in some devices and like a lot in another. It is just your preference and your usage.
And caring about those who don’t like a lot of features in their stereos, we decided to review the Pioneer DEH-150MP.
It is an amazing stereo with the features any human being would need but with no fancy features. You get the DEH-150MP at a reasonable price with reasonable features because you are a reasonable person.
We will do this review in a Q&A format so it could be easier for you to surf it and get an answer for the question you are asking. So, Let’s start:
Why Should You be interested in the Pioneer DEH-150MP? Or who it is for?
The 150MP is a single-din car stereo that you can’t go wrong with. it is one of the best car stereos out there.
In a lot of scenarios the DEH-150MP is going to be an option for you to buy and add to your lovely car:
- Sure, if you are on a budget we recommend you consider it because hey it is under $50 and you can’t go wrong with it expecting something above normal with beautiful red and black design.
- If all that you care about is a solid and durable stereo that should give you powerful output and probably work with every music device you have and is going to take it further with some basic but powerful features the Pioneer DEH-150MP is a stereo you can’t ignore.
These are the situations you will need to consider this car stereo. You could be on a budget or you are a minimal person who wants nothing fancy but something powerful. Also, the stereo is a good-looking piece of hardware so, if you are looking for a stereo that looks good to put on your dashboard it is an amazing option. And also if you like the red color :).
What are the Main features of the DEH-150MP?
while we always refer to Rockford Fosgate when it comes to design in the Car Audio toolkits, Pioneer has the best minds in designing stereos and its dashboards. I mean they know how you interact with the stereo and they try to make it very intuitive for your usage.
When you look to the 150MP you are going to find a beautiful combination of red and black. On the left, you will find anything you need to control your current listening experience and in the middle the beautiful screen that displays 12- characters to see more data about the stuff you are listening to and then on the right you will find the illuminated Aux input to connect your lovely devices there.
With the MOSFET amp in the stereo you will get more power, less distortion and hey you will absolutely get no switch on-off noise. It is an amazing replacement for conventional power suppliers.
The built-in amp is a feature we thought we won’t find in a stereo under $50. But pioneer did and we are so happy with what they did there.
So, the display. It is simple and clean, not so big but big enough to show you your data and current information. The LCD screen will show 12- Characters
Here where Pioneer is really killing it. With 5-band equalizer and the features, I’m listing down here. This is how you get your money back 🙂
when you remove a disc you inserted in the stereo, it is going to automatically shut down but if you played some other media before you remove the disc it will remain working.
The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
this feature is so popular with amplifiers but now it is here with stereo and the DEH-150MP is the one you could go with when you want the feature in your stereo.
Source Level Adjustment:
adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4dB to +4dB.
you will get a remote control with the Pioneer DEH-150MP to let you control most of the basic stuff going on with your stereo with ease.
What did the people say about the DEH-150MP stereo?
This stereo has an enormous number of people reviewed it in the past. To be precise, 977 customers on Amazon reviewed the though we found so many similar opinions and even the complaints were alike.
People who loved it said so many good things about the display, AUX port, and the price.
People who didn’t like it said just one thing: it did not work. Ya, some people faced problems with the stereo. But hey this is going to happen with everything you buy and you have a warranty so, use it.
One complaint we found so reasonable is that sometimes you could have problems in the daylight with the display but we found only one customer complaining. So, if you think you will have a problem with the display, buy a Tesla.
