All the best in digital music

Tired off digging around in your car to find the scratchy old CD you dropped between the seats? Ditch the discs and go digital with JVC's KD-X310BT. This digital media receiver handles all your music devices, plus it gives you a lot more power than your factory radio. Built-in Bluetooth® lets you enjoy hands-free calling and wireless streaming audio.

Ready for your Android™ phone

Android™ users can control Pandora® right from the stereo through the Bluetooth connection — no wires needed. JVC's Smart Music Control app lets you use your compatible Android phone's touchscreen to control the action using finger swipes and gestures — for example, make an upside-down "V" to change the source. With your Android phone safely attached to a mount, you can reach down and skip a track without taking your eyes off the road.

The KD-X310BT plays MP3, WMA, WAV, and even FLAC files. Putting together a custom road mix on a thumb drive for a long trip? You can use JVC's Playlist Creator software on your Windows® PC to organize your music, so you can find the song you want in a flash with the JVC's controls.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

Siri® Eyes Free technology

If you're an iPhone user, this receiver gives you more than wireless control -- you get voice control. Talk to Siri to make calls, choose music, get directions, and more. Anything you can do with Siri can be done with this receiver.

The KD-X310BT is all about app control, too. Pandora® or iHeartRadio users can connect to the receiver and access basic controls like "play," "pause," "thumbs-up," and "thumbs-down" on the screen display. For added convenience, the 2-way control feature lets you pick music using the receiver's controls, or you can use the phone itself.

JVC KD-X310BT Digital Media Receiver

The simple control panel gives you access to a wide range of entertainment options.

Do more with your USB connection

The powerful 1A USB port lets you keep your smartphone charged while it's performing many battery-draining tasks at once. And with your smartphone connected, you can listen to your phone's internal memory as one source and access the little microSD card as another. You can even pair two phones at once, so you'll never have to decide between the personal phone and the work phone again. The Drive Change feature allows you to connect a memory card reader or USB hub to the JVC's USB input and select music from up to five memory cards or USB flash drives.

Expand your system

The KD-X310BT offers the connections you'll need if you're planning to build a complete car audio system sometime in the future. When it's time to add a powered sub, you can switch the rear preamp outputs over to subwoofer mode to control your bass from the receiver. A front aux input lets you hook up other gear, like a Dock & Play satellite radio.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The JVC KD-X310BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (version 2.1+EDR), allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.5 (Hands Free Profile), OPP 1.1 (Object Push Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.3 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    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 JVC KD-X310BT. See JVC's Bluetooth compatibility chart for a complete list of compatible Bluetooth enabled devices.

    Secure Simple Pairing (SSP): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the JVC KD-X310BT without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. When a paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. You can pair up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC  head unit with a maximum of two Bluetooth phones and one Bluetooth audio player connected at one time (but only one can be used at a time).

    Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication: The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The controls of the KD-X310BT can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (with mounting bracket) featuring adjustable gain, so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers. During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering A Call: When a call comes in, a ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker and the caller's name or phone number will be displayed. You can answer the call from the head unit's front-panel controls, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately or after 1-30 seconds. The KD-X310BT also supports the Call Waiting function, so you can answer another incoming call while suspending the current call you are on. Your compatible cell-phone must also support this feature.
    • Dialing A Number: Using the KD-X310BT, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:
      • Entering a Phone Number: Allows you to directly dial a phone number up to 32 digits from the head unit's front-panel rotary dial.
      • Speed Dialing: You can store up to 6 contacts in the memory of this unit for speed dialing.
      • Phone Book: You can dial by using the downloaded phone book. You can download phone book data from your cell phone to the KD-X310BT.You can search through your contacts alphabetically (A-Z) or numerically (0-9). Up to 400 numbers can be stored for each registered cell phone.
      • Call Log: The Call Log is a list of calls that have originated from and were received by this unit that you can dial. You can select Outgoing, Incoming, or Missed calls (up to 50 each).
      • Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply speak into the included microphone. 
    Note: The external wired microphone offers improved audio quality versus an integrated microphone, so you can be heard easier over noisy traffic and road noise. You can adjust the volume level and noise cancellation of the microphone without affecting the other sources. The external microphone features an attached 10' cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector which plugs into the mic input on the rear-panel of the head unit. The microphone offers an integrated mounting bracket which can be clipped to your vehicle's sun-visor or taped to your dash. The external microphone measures 0.525" (diameter) x 1.505" (depth).

    SMS: If your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone is compatible with SMS (Short Message Service), the JVC head unit will notify you when a message has been received. You must then use your phone to check the message. You cannot read, edit, or send a message through this unit.

    Wireless Audio Streaming (w/ Metadata Display): The JVC KD-X310BT also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The KD-X310BT will be able to control basic playback functions of your Bluetooth device's stored music; such as Play/Pause, Skip Next/Previous, Fast Forward/Rewind and Random/Repeat. The head unit will also display your stored music's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title. The KD-X310BT also supports audio streaming of music apps downloaded on your smartphone with metadata display and limited control. Advanced music control of your music apps will still need be done via your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Siri Eyes Free Control: When paired and connected with an iPhone with Bluetooth via Bluetooth (not USB), the JVC KD-X310BT has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KD-X310BT to engage Siri and use the included microphone to communicate with Siri. Siri's voice will heard through your vehicle's speakers. All Siri functions including hands-free calling, music search, setting reminders, text-messaging, audible navigation, and more can be done through the head unit and its microphone. The head unit will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the KD-X310BT; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    Note: You can ask Siri to get directions to a destination and the turn-by-turn instructions will heard through your vehicle's speakers, while the on-screen map still displays on your iPhone with Bluetooth. The head unit's audio is attenuated while Siri provides audible directions.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-X310BT utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KD-X310BT is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the KD-X310BT are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total watts)
    Note: When you are using the KD-X310BT with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to "low," the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to "high," and the volume control will range from 0 to 50.

    2.5V/4CH Preamp Output + Sub Control: The KD-X310BT is equipped with two pair of 2.5V preamp outputs (Front, Rear/SW). You can set the Rear/SW preamp outputs for connecting a pair of full-range rear speakers (through an external amplifier) or for connecting a subwoofer (through an external amplifier). When set for rear speakers, the rear outputs operate with the unit's fader control. When the unit's Rear/SW preamp output is set to Subwoofer, you can set the cutoff frequency of the low-pass filter at 55Hz, 85Hz, or 120Hz. You can also adjust the head unit's subwoofer level between -8 and +8 (separate from the main volume level).

    Pro EQ: The KD-X310BT is equipped with JVC's Pro EQ. The integrated equalizer offers 12 preset sound modes (Flat, Hard Rock, Jazz, Pop, R&B, Talk, vocal Boost, Bass Boost, Classical, Dance, User 1, or User 2) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The User modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 3-band parametric EQ (Frequency, Level, and Q-Factor).

    Pro EQ
    Frequency Level Q
    Bass 60, 80, 100, 200 Hz +/- 12 dB (-6 to +6) 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0

    I wish I had read the installation book that came with it first. I installed it without the microphone plugged in. I had to remove the unit and plug it in the back of the unit.

    Pros: Great sound.

    Cons: Microphone plugs in the back, not the front.

    I've only had it a few days but I'm extremely impressed! For the price this is a huge improvement over my factory unit in my 2004 Volvo S60. It's a real convenience to use bluetooth for any calls and also not to have to swipe open my phone to change songs. Extremely satisfied.

    Pros: Easy setup, just connecting red to red, blue to blue, etc. I did it myself in about 30 minutes. Seems to be really good value compared to others in similar price range. The sound is great, starts up fast enough, plenty of customization. Great device

    Cons: The blue is pretty bright. Some people like that though. Menu navigation is a little weird as well.

    This unit works great, sound great, and gets the job done.

    Pros: Sounds Great, looks good, and has good features if you want to use your radio with your phone (i use it with and iPhone 5s)

    Cons: The main control nob is positioned in just the right place that when turning it your hand blocks the display and you can't see what you are doing. Also the display is hard to read in bright sun light. Based on these two items I would not recommend this radio.

    The install and set up was relatively easy. It connected to both of my phones over BT and worked overall as expected.

    Pros: Price and features.

    Cons: The metal sleeve it snaps in to does not hold it quite as tight as I would like.

    Excellent stereo! I installed this in a 1999 Corvette along with the Axxess XSVI-2004 so I could retain my Bose speakers without the need of running xtra wiring, the sound is awesome. Now I have hands free calling and all the great features from bluetooth. Hooked up my Android phone, no problem. I now can enjoy wireless bluetooth to listen to Pandora and Iheartradio, no wires protruding from my dash. The installation went very smooth, the phone calls are crystal clear. Pleasure to deal with Crutchfield, they sent me everything I needed. Highly recommend!

    Pros: Just a excellent stereo at a reasonable price!

    Cons: None!

    This turned out to be a great unit, I wanted a Kenwood but could not find a unit that meet my specific needs. Crutchfield rep recommended this unit but I had never owned JVC products before. I went ahead and ordered it and I am glad I did, this unit works great. It's a little difficult to navigate at first but once you get used to it it's no big deal. The Bluetooth works amazing and my iPhone pairs up with the unit automatically as soon as I get in the vehicle. IPod function works great also and can be controlled from the head unit. I am very impressed with the Bluetooth clarity when connected to phone calls and works great with Siri too! I would highly recommend this unit!!!

    Pros: Value, sound, inputs, Bluetooth

    Cons: No cd

    Great digital receiver, easy to use, and cheap bluetooth. I have no CDs anymore so this is perfect. It has only one annoying flaw; it doesn't initiate the BT connection until you select BT audio. This means waiting 30-60 seconds for it to pair up again every time you change inputs or turn on the stereo.

    Pros: Easy to use, dims with the rest of the console, good amplification and sound

    Cons: Doesn't maintain the Bluetooth pairing unless you've selected BT Audio

    Radio, Bluetooth, and USB all work well. The USB reads the flash drive much quicker than my last receiver. Scrolling and searching for songs is not as easy as I'd like and the tool to create a database on the drive is limited but the overall USB functionality is good. Bluetooth also works very well. The iHeartAuto app I downloaded on my phone doesn't see the receiver but the regular iHeartRadio app and TuneIn work fine. JVC has other smartphone apps but I haven't spent too much time learning about them.

    Pros: The controls are easy to use.

    Cons: The display limits USB searching and scrolling.

    I bought this because I wanted a CD Free receiver in my Sprinter van. I am running this with 2 6x9's in a box and a single 10" sub on a 4x100 w amp with the head unit powering a 2 way 4" dash speaker with separate tweeters. This combo is very good and makes a lot of sense for my van from an install perspective.

    Head unit takes a little getting used to, but has solid preset EQ options and the ability to make adjustments to varying sound ranges. I've been able to dial in my system.

    Pandora controls are meh. As expected, dumbing down the interactive nature to an LCD and 2 buttons is frustrating. If you are playing from pandora it automatically forces you to use the headunit which makes driving and trying to find a relax or station more dangerous than just using your phone.

    Demo mode is annoying, but easy to turn off.

    Pros: -Good power for my use. -Has features I like, but many I won't use. -Good sound quality. -Easy to install -Lots of options in the head unit like bass boosting and rear channel crossover for sub (I'm using bass blockers on the front mids and the amp crossover for the back) -Decent Value

    Cons: -Pandora control is not a plus -Looks and feels cheap -LCD could be brighter for sure -Sound quality much improved over stock, but I think it's a little gainy even on low gain mode from built in amp.

    I recently bought this for my 99 Miata and absolutely love this unit already. I bought it to replace the factory head unit because I was sick of using an FM modulator with my devices. The Bluetooth connects fast and works like a champ whether connecting with my ipod or cell phone. Coupled with a new set of Blaupunkt 5x7's in the doors, the sound quality has obviously undergone a drastic improvement. As usual, my order was processed and shipped incredibly fast and I recieved everything as advertised. With the addition of the harness adapters and mastersheet, installation was incredibly easy and I was able to install both the deck and speakers in less than an hour. **Note to fellow Miata owners, If you have a 99-05 Miata, you will only need the wiring harness to complete the installation. The DIN sleeve fits securely in the stock position without using the supplied Metra install kit.

    Pros: Great Price, cool looking deck, great functionality and sound quality, ease of installation. A few people mentioned that it doesnt tell time.. This is incorrect. The clock works all the time, you just need to configure the display to show it.

    Cons: Not really a big deal, but there isn't a storage case supplied for the detachable face. Not really a con, but the operating instructions provided with the stereo are a bit vague in a few areas such as tuner operation.

    great!

    I bought this stereo as a gift for my daughter, and I installed it in her 1996 VW Jetta. I have bought from Crutchfield before and they are the best. I really like their model-specific step-by-step instructions for different cars, there was no guesswork whatsoever and installing it was easy! The installation looked clean and professional. As for the JVC KD-X310BT, wow. Great stereo. My daughter's car has component speakers that really came to life, the clarity from this unit is unbelievable. I've owned cars with stock radios and cars with a fully amplified system with subwoofer, etc... - and you would never know this unit was not being run through an amplifier, the clarity is great - even at higher volumes. It's a nice-looking stereo with great features. The Bluetooth paired immediately and seems to have a strong connection, if there is such a thing. Audio played from your phone via Bluetooth is so clean you would think the phone was directly connected via USB. The display is clean and easy to read with enough characters to display most song titles in their entirety. The phone works great and their audio controls for the phone are effective - once it's dialed in the clarity is very good and the echo-canceling feature really does work well. It's amazing that you can get a stereo of this quality, with this many features at such a good price.

    Pros: No more CD's. Every feature works well. The sound quality is great. The "coolness factor" really is 5 stars in my opinion.

    Cons: If there is a con, it's just the learning curve of using the menu - just like every other stereo out there. I sat in the car with the manual in my lap and had everything pretty much figured out in 20-30 minutes. But once it is dialed in the way you want it I doubt you will need to go into the menus very much.

    I wanted something that could play all my music, either on memory devices, from the cloud, or just a simple line-in. This unit does it all and then some, I usually use the Bluetooth feature to play Pandora. And not to mention how the integrated equalizer optimized the heck out of my outdated speakers. Its like km driving a new car! And it looks pretty sweet too!

    Pros: Pretty much all the features, which seem to be endless.

    Cons: NONE, but now I have lots of CD's I'm not using. But now I can rip them I to media and play all of them from the cloud. Wait, that's a pro...

    Good radio! Bluetooth works really well and Ipod capability was a plus. My only complaint is that this radio is advertised to have steering wheel control capability but it does not. This left me a bit displeased meaning I need to rely on the remote it came with.

    Pros: Ease of use
