This summary is based on the product: Sony SRS-BTV5 Wireless NFC Speaker - White

Expert review by:



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

You can't easily get big sound out of a small object, and when a speaker is designed first and foremost to be tiny, you can be confident it won't rock the house. Sony's Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speaker SRS-BTV5 is proof of that. This $69.99 (direct)...

Crisp clear sound and call quality from a orange?

Absolutely nothing so far

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
