Creative Labs ZiiSound D5 review: Creative Labs ZiiSound D5


Creative Labs ZiiSound D5

Speaker bar with integrated Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming; compact design ideal for shelf placement; optimized Bluetooth dongle included for iPods and iPhone.

Cloth covering is susceptible to fraying; fairly pricey.

Though the price of the Creative ZiiSound D5 Bluetooth speaker is a bit steep, its simple, attractive design and decent sound make it recommendable.

Creative ZiiSound D5


At $300, the slick Creative ZiiSound D5 seems a bit overpriced, but what you miss in hi-fi audio performance, you gain in wireless capabilities.

Quality wireless audio. Simple, visually pleasing design. Bluetooth dongle lets the iPod becomes its own remote control. Works through walls.

Speakers can't handle deep bass at high volumes. Bluetooth audio signal can be weak—range must stay within roughly 30 feet. When docked, iPod still uses Bluetooth instead of direct connection for audio.

Creative ZiiSound D5 Bluetooth Speaker Review


The ZiiSound D5 is a sound-bar type stereo speaker with an iPod docking port, a Bluetooth receiver, and a Bluetooth dongle that can be plugged into most any model iPhone, iPad, or iPod (except the Shuffle). If you'd prefer to stream from a computer,...

After all, that device costs twice as much and doesn't have a wireless option

Wireless bookshelf iPod speakers


Few iPod speakers received as many raves in 2010 as the Creative ZiiSound D5. This one-piece iPod speaker system has a trick up its sleeve -- it can stream music wirelessly from your iPod or iPhone, so there's no need for a traditional dock. The...

Wirelessly streams music, sleek design, very good sound quality

Expensive, onboard volume control is too sensitive, some distortion at maximum volume

Creative ZiiSound D5 Review


The ZiiSound D5 is Creative's flag ship compact speaker system and centered around Bluetooth audio. I have tended to shy away from Bluetooth audio devices since most of the devices I have tried came up pretty short in terms of sound quality. In short,...

What I like the most about the D5 is the sound to size ratio and the versatility of being able to use different devices. For these reasons it will become a permanent resident in the corner of my living room. The solid design and quality materials is...

Creative ZiiSound D5 Speaker System


Creative's ZiiSound D5 isn't your average compact speaker system.

Creative isn't targeting the budget-constrained with the ZiiSound D5 - its £279.99 price tag makes that clear. It's not hard to see what that money is buying though. The ZiiSound D5's Bluetooth connectivity is well-implemented and it both looks and...

Creative ZiiSound D5 review


It's got some sonic flaws, but we think this iPod dock system is a great way to utilise Bluetooth technology effectively

Substantial sound ; bass weight ; timing ; wireless functionality

Midrange has an unnatural edge

Overall, a successful attempt to produce a high-fidelity, wireless iPod speaker dock

Solid Bluetooth connection ; Very impressive sound ; Sleek and stylish

Not great at shaping the sound

A quality device that combines solid Bluetooth and superb audio
