Philips Izzy BM5 review - multiroom and Bluetooth speaker

 

The Izzy BM5 is a compact multiroom speaker with simple setup

Of course, with the simplicity of the izzylink system come certain limitations compared to more fully-fledged multiroom systems. Needing to have a Bluetooth device within range of a Master speaker won’t be ideal for everyone and some will prefer a more...

Philips Izzy BM5

 

The Philips Izzy BM5 is the latest attempt to make multiroom audio accessible. The BM5 is the first among a whole range of "Izzylink" speakers to appear in 2016, which will use the same system.

Fairly affordable ; Cute design ; Simple multiroom skills

Lifeless, undynamic mids ; Nuts ’n’ bolts multiroom won’t appeal to all ; Not portable ; Harsh edge to sound at higher volumes

Philips' faff-free multiroom system is let down by pretty uninspiring sound quality.

I've really enjoyed the sound of this speaker, it has good bass and clear highs. Excellent volume for its size and it has Bluetooth to play music from your phone!

Really pleasantly surprised!!

Good Multi-room Speaker

Particularly uninspiring sound. Huge sound delays

 

Bought 2 of these for xmas as a present for my Daughter the sound is very flat and volume levels are poor. After connecting to her laptop the huge sound delays make watching any videos impossible. An all round disappointment. I'll stick with Sonos....
