Sony has produced a top-notch wireless design that looks and sounds every bit as good as the competition.

There can't be much argument that nearly £300 for a portable Bluetooth speaker is a lot of cash. But that said, the sound quality from this Sony is nothing short of amazing. It's also a fantastic speakerphone and we think it looks ace too.
It won't be for all, but the sound quality is really next-level stuff, and it feels like a return to form for Sony, which seems to have been enjoying a real boost in both build quality and well thought-out products in the past year.
This is the Sony we remember from the 80s, not the company that got tangled in its own tentacles in th... Full review
It's hard to stand out in the sea of tabletop speakers out there. Sony has made a nice effort with its SRS-BTX500. It doesn't pack the same power as something like the Sonos PLAY:3, which I think projects slightly better sound overall for the same $299.99 MSRP. But the Play:3 requires a hard-wired connection, while the Sony can crank out tunes without wires for up to six hours.
That said, it certainly holds its own -- in terms of sound quality and functionality -- in a really crowded market. It's one of the best-sounding portable speakers we've seen (and heard). I'm not talking just... Full review
Sony’s ability to nail the sound quality in the BTX makes the other features that much more enjoyable. First off, the unit looks attractive with a solid black speaker front and brushed aluminum along the sides. The buttons are well-placed, and pairing and other features such as MegaBass are intuitive. A glowing blue light bar completes the design, and the entire look exudes understated, sophisticated polish.
On the back side sits an easy flipstand, a charging port, an audio in jack, and that USB charging port. The USB charging port’s usefulness is limited since it’... Full review
The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II and its predecessor have really owned the premium portable Bluetooth speaker market (yes, the Jawbone Big Jambox is a strong product, but it hasn't had nearly the success of the much smaller, original Jambox). While the SoundLink II is an excellent product, its dominance has been more than partially fueled by Bose's massive marketing efforts.
The Sony SRS-BTX500 won't get that kind of support from Sony, but it certainly holds its own against the Bose. It's a slick, excellent-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker that also features speaker... Full review
Darn, there are no reviews yet for this accessory.
No questions for the moment.
