Sony SRS-BTX500

 

I'm most impressed with the X-series line -- especially the subject of this review, the SRS-BTX500, which has a very slick design and delivers excellent sound for a compact Bluetooth speaker . At around $300, it competes against such products as Bose's...

The Sony SRS-BTX500 is a sleekly designed Bluetooth wireless speaker that offers impressive sound for its size, and has a built-in rechargeable battery for on-the-go use, and speakerphone capabilities. A carrying case is included and there's a USB port...

The speaker's fairly expensive and the battery life is OK but not great.

A worthy peer to speakers by Bose and Jawbone, the Sony SRS-BTX500 is one of the best premium portable Bluetooth speakers you can buy.

The Wirecutter describes the design as "classy but not flashy": an understated look that will blend into most home interiors. For a portable speaker, though, it's a bit on the heavy side, at 4.5 pounds. CNET says it's "probably not something you want...

Very good sound quality, Easy Bluetooth pairing, Speakerphone function, Clean, sleek design

So-so battery life, A bit heavy

This slick little box can rock your Bluetooth and NFC devices from the tabletop or on the road.

That said, it certainly holds its own -- in terms of sound quality and functionality -- in a really crowded market. It's one of the best-sounding portable speakers we've seen (and heard). I'm not talking just room to room. This thing would be just as...

Too large & heavy for travel, Battery life could be better

Sony SRS-BTX500 bluetooth speaker review - Pocket-lint

 

Bluetooth speakers are the new headphones. We don't mean literally, and please don't start taking them on the bus with you, but they are an area where

Sounds amazing, looks great, built-in battery, NFC for Bluetooth pairing is a dream come true, simple to use, loud

Easy to leave on and thus drain the battery

There can't be much argument that nearly £300 for a portable Bluetooth speaker is a lot of cash. But that said, the sound quality from this Sony is nothing short of amazing. It's also a fantastic speakerphone and we think it looks ace too.

Sony SRS-BTX500 review

 

Should you make space in your luggage for the Sony SRS-BTX500 wireless speaker?

Premium design ; Room-filling audio ; USB charging

Poor battery life ; Price ; It's bulky

Sony SRS-BTX500

 

There's plenty to like about this compact portable speaker, but there are more talented alternatives available

Clear and sharply defined sound ; Punchy rhythm and agile timing ; Solid, weighty character ; Good build and finish

Rivals sound more open and detailed ; Bright edge to the sound

So, where does that leave the SRS-BTX500? WOn the one hand, we like the convenience and portability but, despite that wonderfully clean sound and snappy timing, the Sony just doesn’t have the levels of emotion and subtle depth to compete with its rivals.
