Sony SRS-DB500 review


The Sony SRS-DB500 speakers work well enough, but do they really need to glow bright blue?

Great sound quality ; Tone adjustments ; Line-in for connecting another source ; Remote control

Blue LEDs are very bright

Sony SRS-DB500 review


Sony's SRS-DB500 has a smart looking subwoofer. It looks huge, but is actually fairly light. The illuminated dial on the front isn't just for show – it grows brighter the more you boost the bass, treble or volume using either the knobs on the subwoofer...

Sony’s SRS-DB500 look impressive but don’t sound quite good enough to justify its high price.

Perfect Match


I have always wanted a good set of speakers to listen to my music, connect to my tv, etc. and I can say these are what I have been looking for all these years. To start with, Sony wasn't kidding with the bonerattling bass statement, when you put the...

Powerful bass, Very versatile speaker set

Not in stock at most stores

Read before buying!


I recently purchased these speakers to go with my recent purchase of a custom ordered Sony L series all-in-one computer. What I failed to recognize, is that unless you have an "audio-in" jack, you can only connect these through your head phone jack. I...

VERY Powerful Computer Speakers!


So I researched tons of speaker options for my 27" iMac and I couldn't find one set that could match the power specs of the Sony SRS-DB500. I'm a huge Sony guy when it comes to my living room, but always went with Logitech speakers for my home office....

Very Loud, Monster Bass, Nice Design

Speakers are boxy and not as attractive as the subwoofer

Without exaggeration, the best PC speakers ever


I've owned several computer speaker systems over the years from both Sony and other manufacturers, and none compare with the cleverly named "SRS-DB500". (Let's call them the 500's.) I bought them last summer for my dorm room because I didn't want to...

Amazingly Powerful. Amazing fidelity even at the highest volume levels. Bass that can't be described

Design is not your usual Sony - orange light around volume dial can't be turned off

Superb Clarity and Bass !


These speakers are among the best 2.1 speakers available today ! The bass is just awesome, no doubt, at half volume it literally shakes the doors and other things. Mids are crystal clear as these are "Sony" speakers. Treble might sound harsh at very...

Tight, strong Bass. No distortion at max volume

Wrong specifications on Sony website


I love the way these guys sound. They truly create an enveloping aural experience. The bass is also more than sufficient. I do have a recommendation for Sony however, on your website the dynamic range for the subwoofer is not correct. It is advertised...

Great sounding system

Not the best looking system in the world
