4.0 out of 5 stars Simple to use, Decent sound quality 18 Dec. 2013
By Nick Magrogan - Published on
Verified Purchase
I've had this portable bluetooth speaker for about two weeks now, and so far I'm pretty happy with it. The controls are straightforward and easy to use. The overall design is nice and it doesn't take up much space at all. I have used the bluetooth without any problems paired to my iPhone 4S and my Sony VAIO laptop (running Windows 8.1).

If you don't have bluetooth, it has an aux in plug, so you can connect to it using a standard 3.5mm cable. It also has an audio out plug, so it can double as a bluetooth receiver if you wanted to connect it to another set of speakers, for example.

If I had to give this unit a downside, it would be the sound quality, but that is to be expected with a unit of this size and weight. It's clearly not going to fill a large room with great quality sound, but it's not a bad option to use at your desk, or if you're with a small group of people and need to play something louder than your smartphone or laptop.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for My Needs 13 Mar. 2014
By Rhenzi Keys - Published on
I bought this on one of the cable shopping channels for a *much* better price. I have had it a little over a week. I bought it to have bluetooth speaker capability in my 19 year old truck (the speakers in my truck have deteriorated quite a bit over the years). I listen to podcasts and audiobooks mostly and very little music.

What I liked about these speakers:
- Appears to be solidly constructed. Would probably survive a drop to a concrete floor. I don't anticipate being near water with this, so I can't comment on the splash-proof feature.
- Sound is adequate and ok for my needs, but I wish it was louder. Base and treble responses seem to be ok, but as I mentioned, I don't listen to much music.
- Pairing was easy. Used NFC to pair with my Samsung G3 with just a tap. No problems with the bluetooth connection.
- Battery life is roughly around the 10 hours advertised. I like the battery button that announces your battery level when you press it.
- I like the phone connect option / button.

What I do not like:
- There are no buttons for media playback (e. g. pause, forward, back). You have to control your media from the sending device.
- Does not use a USB connection for charging, so I can't charge it in my truck (without an inverter). It comes with a Sony proprietary AC adapter. However, the battery life seems to be long enough for me to charge it on the weekend and it should last through the weekdays.

I would rank these speakers as OK for my intended use and for the price I paid. If I had paid what Amazon is asking for, I would probably feel differently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for parties or the shower 6 Jan. 2014
By jess_in_time - Published on
This gets the job done! My favorite feature is something I wouldn't have thought I'd appreciate so much. There are two playing modes and they are automatically changed based on the position of the speaker. Set it up right and it plays "surround sound" filling a room (especially great in the bathroom). Set it on either side and you get a more focused sound, great for setting it in a corner at a party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice size for travel 5 Sept. 2014
By Selden Deemer - Published on

I have had a Soundfreaq Sound Kick for about 2 years, and while the sound is surprisingly good (especially bass response, thanks to the expandable resonance chamber), it's a very utilitarian design, a little larger than I want for travel, and has no carrying case. The Sony SRSBTS50 doesn't match the bass output of the Sound Kick, but it's much smaller, and the combination of a vinyl "waist band" and cloth covering makes it much more amenable to being tossed in luggage for a trip.

Pairing was straightforward with multiple devices, and the spoken feedback for for BT connection status and battery charge level is surprisingly useful — although it would be nice to have an option to disable it. Unlike the Sound Kick, the Sony can be used as a BT speaker phone (a feature of no interest to me), but lacks a USB port, a handy feature on the Sound Kick for charging other devices (such as a phone or tablet), reducing the number of chargers one needs to carry on a trip. Volume is reasonable, although like any speaker of this type, it will distort at high levels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good speaker at an affordable price. 1 Oct. 2014
By Mark T - Published on
I bought this at an exterior sight for 43.65.
Color was not my favorite, but the price was good. Sound is good. comparable to the JBL Flip.
[ I listened to the JBL line at Bestbuy]
The Sony is pretty loud, but not earth shattering. Loud enough that my g/f and kid were annoyed.
The base is pretty non-existant. I tried it with Boston, 3 Doors,Disturbed, Fleetwood Mac.
The mids were clear as were the high's. The pairing is simple hit the pairing button and its automatic when your phone's
bluetooth is also on. I have a Sony Xperia SP that i used the NFC is also easy.
The speaker will outlast your phone generally in battery life. Might have been nice to have a usb charger instead of Sonys version of it. The phone application's are nice the other party is clear and they hear you fine also, so no need to yell into the phone as sometimes it seems its necessary when your using your speaker on the phone.
