Product Description

At a glance

  • Lightweight and portable - listen to your music in surround sound while you're on the go.
  • Connect your smartphone with NFC One-touch listening, or using Bluetooth.
  • Take the party with you and your friends. The speaker has surround sound mode that lets you share your music.
  • With its mesh fabric and rubber belt the wireless speaker gives you splash proof performance, even when hands are wet.
  • Answer calls with a simple press of the hands free button on the speaker, so there's no need to touch your smartphone.

Let there be music wirelessly

Friends and music. Two things that go well together. And to get the party started wherever you like to hang out, put our ultra-portable wireless speaker in the mix. It's easy to connect your smartphone for NFC One-touch listening, or via Bluetooth. For smaller groups the speaker's directional mode is perfect - and if more people join the party, just tilt the speaker upwards to experience superb surround sound. It's splash proof, too, so it's ideal to use at the beach or poolside. And with up to 10 hours battery life, no matter where you go, your music can travel with you.

Freedom. For you and your music

When you leave the house, our ultra portable wireless speaker means your music doesn't need to be left behind. Perfect for outdoors, it's lightweight yet durable. And because it slips easily into a bag a day at the skatepark becomes a party with friends, the poolside a dance floor. No matter where you find yourself, your music is there with you.

Connect with the music

Sharing your music is super simple. Get connected in an instant by placing your smartphone against the NFC One-touch connection. Or if your smartphone has Bluetooth, you can pair it with the speaker in seconds. All you need to do to get the party started is start selecting your favourite songs.

A new angle on sharing music

Keep it personal, or share your sounds. The speaker has a 'G-Sensor' accelerometer inside, so that when you change the angle of the speaker it shifts from directional mode to deliver outstanding surround sound. And because of its unique hexagonal shape, you can move to party mode without missing a beat.

A few drops of water, easily handled

Let your music make a splash. The design of the speaker protects it against dripping water when tilted, so you can handle it even when your hands are wet. Being splashproof means there's no need to reach for the towel when you get out of the pool and want to turn up the volume.

Handily hands free

When you need to pause the party - to take those all-important calls to let your friends know where it's at - use the speaker and not your phone. You can also use the volume on your smartphone to shift it up a notch, so your speaker stays perfectly placed to share your chosen tunes. Leaving you to carry on having a great time.

Colour Name: Red Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The designers at Sony have got this little Bluetooth speaker just about right. It is truly portable as it will play for up to ten hours on a single charge – and I found this to be quite an accurate figure. It is small enough to be easily carried around and even has an eye for attaching a karabiner if required. It is splash-proof – not fully water-proof though! – so it can be used near water fairly safely. If connected to a Smartphone you can answer calls from it and use it as a speakerphone as it has a built-in microphone.

The Bluetooth connects easily by conventional methods - although I had no luck using NFC from a Samsung tablet. The first time the speaker is powered up it goes into Bluetooth pairing mode and after that you can press a button to connect additional devices. There is an aux-in via a 3.5mm jack socket for connecting any non-Bluetooth device that has a headphone socket, and a 3.5mm jack socket for audio out. These are accessed via a waterproof flap that also covers the power in socket. The speaker comes with a power adaptor for charging but the connection is not via a mini USB – this is the only thing I would change as this would have made charging from a laptop or in the car possible too.

You can press a button and the speaker will tell you its state of charge, it also has a few other phrases used at other times too! The same button will also change the language if you are not careful! If that happens keep pressing it until it says “English”. There are two audio modes which are changed via an internal gravity switch – in normal mode the speaker is more directional for small groups directly in front of it, and on its back the sound is more diffuse (surround sound mode) for larger groups in a wider area.

I brought it around £40. It exceed all my expectation.

I initially brought Cambridge Audio MINX GO Bluetooth Active (£99.95). The sound is really muddy. I have no choice but to return it.

The SRS_BTS50's sound clarity is very good. Detailed highs and punchy lows. It is loud enough for any medium sized room.

Even at the current price I will still buy it. I have a Sony SRS-BTX500 as well. It cost me £150. It does sound better and louder but no way near 2 times better. I would say this one is best value for money.

Good signal/connection, water proof and good battery life etc are all extra bonus.

But you should not expect it sound as good as any decent HIFI system cost 300+ - it compare well with any other bluetooth speaker but it is a bluetooth speaker after all.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Out of the box, this compact speaker (it's 16.5cm long by my measurements and a little under 7cm deep) is simplicity itself to use, pairing via either bluetooth or NFC. I was surprised when I first got it that it didn't come with a cover or anything other than the charger but it doesn't really need any protection as it's solidly made. The case is hard and also the outer mesh is splash resistant. It looks and feels a bit like a glasses case; bar the power on button, volume, a charge LED and the inputs/outputs for audio and the power jack (these are hidden under a protective rubber door), there's little else to this bar a hook on the top I personally never use but which could be good for attaching to a belt or the like. I really love the simplicity of the design, it looks and feels like a quality affair and befitting the Sony badge. It really is a case of charging up the speaker and then pressing the input pairing button on the base of the device and you are good to go for hours of use. I'd say the manufacturer's claim of 10 hours is about right - in any case you can check how charged it is again by just touching the button charge button, and a pleasant computerised voice will tell you how much battery remains. I've never had any issue using this speaker or experienced it dropping out, it works perfectly with whatever audio I throw at it.

Sound wise, it's pretty good. I find the volume sufficient for my use, it's certainly better than the ipad integrated speakers and copes well when for example I'm streaming a film for viewing whilst using my noisy steam iron (I know, livin' the dream eh?).

First, the sound quality is good but not great. But don't let that put you off, almost everything else about this speaker is perfect. I particularly like the voice that tells me when I need to pair my Bluetooth device, and speaks the batter level to me. I also love the built-in mic and hands-free mobile phone conversation feature. I honestly didn't expect to use it, but when you get an incoming call, it's so simple to take it just by pressing the pick-up button atop the speaker and the quality of the call is excellent. The size and weight are good for portability - I was able to easily pack it in a briefcase for a business trip. The two downsides for me are firstly that the speaker requires its own special charger (not a USB charger) and secondly that there's no feature to charge my mobile phone via a USB output. If this speaker had both of those features, I'd give it 5 stars.
