Creative ZiiSound D5 Bluetooth Speaker Review


The ZiiSound D5 is a sound-bar type stereo speaker with an iPod docking port, a Bluetooth receiver, and a Bluetooth dongle that can be plugged into most any model iPhone, iPad, or iPod (except the Shuffle). If you'd prefer to stream from a computer,...

After all, that device costs twice as much and doesn't have a wireless option

Creative ZiiSound D5


Bluetooth wireless audio is notorious for its defects: the splashy, distorted sound of low bit-rate files and the sputtering that comes with an interrupted signal. Creative continues to dodge these pitfalls, however, first with its Inspire S2 Wireless...

Quality wireless audio. Simple, visually pleasing design. Bluetooth dongle lets the iPod becomes its own remote control. Works through walls

Speakers can't handle deep bass at high volumes. Bluetooth audio signal can be weak—range must stay within roughly 30 feet. When docked, iPod still uses Bluetooth instead of direct connection for audio

At $300, the slick Creative ZiiSound D5 seems a bit overpriced, but what you miss in hi-fi audio performance, you gain in wireless capabilities.

Wireless bookshelf iPod speakers


Few iPod speakers received as many raves in 2010 as the Creative ZiiSound D5. This one-piece iPod speaker system has a trick up its sleeve -- it can stream music wirelessly from your iPod or iPhone, so there's no need for a traditional dock. The...

Wirelessly streams music, sleek design, very good sound quality

Expensive, onboard volume control is too sensitive, some distortion at maximum volume

Creative ZiiSound D5 Review


The ZiiSound D5 is Creative's flag ship compact speaker system and centered around Bluetooth audio. I have tended to shy away from Bluetooth audio devices since most of the devices I have tried came up pretty short in terms of sound quality. In short,...

What I like the most about the D5 is the sound to size ratio and the versatility of being able to use different devices. For these reasons it will become a permanent resident in the corner of my living room. The solid design and quality materials is...

Creative ZiiSound D5 - Style Unlimited


iPod docks are a dime a dozen and what consumers need is something more. Creative's ZiiSound D5 is a Bluetooth-enabled speaker that aims to give the consumer exactly that in terms of portability, high quality sound and looks. Let's see if it can...

This is a really good Bluetooth speaker, but is way too expensive at Rs. 17,999. Sure, it sounds good, but it's bass heavy and distorts at high volume. It looks great, but has a cloth-covered front which could easily tear or gather dust. But the D5...

Can you have quality sound in a Bluetooth iPod dock?

Solid Bluetooth connection ; Very impressive sound ; Sleek and stylish

Not great at shaping the sound

A quality device that combines solid Bluetooth and superb audio

Creative ZiiSound D5 review


It's got some sonic flaws, but we think this iPod dock system is a great way to utilise Bluetooth technology effectively

Substantial sound ; bass weight ; timing ; wireless functionality

Midrange has an unnatural edge

Overall, a successful attempt to produce a high-fidelity, wireless iPod speaker dock

Creative ZiiSound D5 review


The Creative ZiiSound D5 is an iPod speaker dock. Unlike any other speaker dock we've seen, the iPod connects wirelessly over Bluetooth. There's therefore no need for a separate remote control, which are often clumsy and awkward to use for navigating...

The Creative ZiiSound D5 wireless iPod dock is easy to set up but its sound quality is disappointing, especially at such an eye-watering price.
