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.

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.Read more ›
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.
What I didn't expect was the voice - pressing the pairing button announces the fact, and pressing battery tells you "about 70% remaining" in a female voice. It's actually quite useful and made pairing a doddle. It's a nice touch that provides a good user experience.
In use, it's pretty decent. I used via Bluetooth with an iPhone 5, and the quality was okay - generally good but occasional lag and break up and the volume is okay in a house, but if used on a beach or at a party I suspect it won't be able to output at loud enough volume to be heard. One useful feature is that if used with a phone, you can answer calls via the speaker by hitting the button on the side of it. This could be good if the phone is hidden away in a bag and it's also convenient as you don't have to go looking for the phone.
It's supposed to be splash proof, and while I didn't test it, there doesn't seem to any reason to doubt that - the waterproof flap and the rubberised case seems to be quite resistant to water.Read more ›
I bought it to provide better sound when watching movies on an iPad Air, which it does quite well.
However, when using it in Bluetooth mode the movie sound is about half a second late in reaching the speakers...which means voices etc are noticably out of sync...I suspect most BT speakers do that. So rather than use BT I connect the iPad to the speaker with a 3.5mm jack cable, and that works fine.
It's a shame there isn't a setting/app on the iPad that can delay the movie picture by half a second to allow BT speakers to keep in sync...or is there?...anyone have any thoughts on that?
Playing music files won't be noticably affected by the BT delay.
The Sony has much better sound than the likes of the more portable Music Angel Friendz and the XMI MiniAngle (I've got both).
Overall a decent effort by Sony.
