Sony SRS-BTV5 portable Bluetooth speaker review

 

Tiny wireless Bluetooth speakers -- particularly the ball-shaped variety -- continue to proliferate, and Sony has gotten in on the action with its SRS-BTV5, a $69.99 model that comes in black, white, and pink. (If the model number sounds uninviting,...

The Sony SRS-BTV5 is a sleek and compact ball-shaped wireless Bluetooth speaker that offers a good feature set, including a built-in rechargeable battery, speakerphone capabilities, an auxiliary input, and NFC one-touch tap-to-pair technology.

In terms of sound it fails to distinguish itself from the pack, and the NFC technology proved problematic.

The Sony SRS-BTV5 wireless Bluetooth speaker boasts speakerphone and (iffy) NFC capabilities, but it doesn't beat the competition for the price.

Sony Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speaker SRS-BTV5

 

The Sony Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speaker SRS-BTV5 is small, cleverly designed, and unfortunately low on power output.

Compact. Attractive. Easy to pair.

Weak bass. Tinny treble. Speakerphone feature isn't very loud.

Sony Bluetooth Wireless Speaker SRS-BTV5 [Review]

 

After having a tour of Sony's various products back at CES 2013 earlier this year in Las Vegas, I felt I needed some of a hands on approach with many of the devices. One of those was the SRS-BTV5 (wireless speaker) which actually doesn't even have an...

Battery life is poor!

 

OK, so the one I bought is refurbished, so I don't know how long the battery should last on a new one or not.I charged this with the USB cable included in the kit until the charge light went out indicating a full charge.I paired it with my cell phone...

Coolest Little Speaker!

 

It is a very compact, cute and cool way of listening to music on the phone. The sound was louder than I thought it would be from a speaker so small. It was very easy to connect to my phone as well. However, the only con is if there isa phone call and...

Sounds as good as at looks

 

This is a very well designed and engineered Sony product that not only looks great but also produces a very clear and crisp sound. I keep it on my desk so that I can listen to music and podcasts via the bluetooth feature. It works great with my iPhone,...

Small size, attractive design, very good sound quality

Thinking of getting another one!

 

So I've had this little speaker for about a week. It produces great sound, minus some bass because frankly, it's a small speaker. I didn't give it 5 stars because I had some issues pairing this speaker using NFC, but then found the Sony Easy NFC App in...

Small-ish, Good Battery Life, Good Sound

Not a lot of Bass, volume control is confusing and there aren't many color options
