Advantages: Portable, great sound quality, wireless, also acts as a hands free speaker phone
Disadvantages: There are cheaper alternatives on the market which may be sufficient
I actually didn't buy this product out of choice as I got it free from a betting website as part of a loyalty reward.
But never the less, these speakers are awesome.
Technology is moving at a rapid pace and I'm glad I have something like this. First of all and most importantly, the quality of sound is of top quality. It's full clear and crisp.
Now I guess what makes these speakers so cool is that it has a wireless feature to it. What that means is that from the touch of a button from your mobile phone, you can programme what songs you want and it will connect via blue tooth to the speakers. I've never had any problems or issues with connectivity.
Guess what else it can do (although I've never done it as I don't like speaking on speaker phone), well if you are listening to music but a call comes through, you can answer it via the speakers and have a chat hands free!
Now last time I checked the price of these speakers on-line, they were retailing for around £55, which in my opinion is well worth the money. The wireless features are obviously a great selling point, but from my view it is the sound quality which sounds out the most.
Now the speakers are equipped with something called NFC support, which apparently boosts the connectivity even more.
Battery life is exceptionally good for something of this quality. According to the manufacturer the batter life is around 5 hours, but we got just over 6 hours when we tried this beauty out at a party.
The strength of the speakers is 1.2 Watt, which is pretty decent for the size.
The speakers that I received are black in colour, although I believe you can also purchase these in white as well, and no doubt Sony will more than likely offer additional colours in no time at all.
When the speakers require more battery, there is a charging facility located underneath, the speaker which takes a micro USB input.
In terms of comparing this product to others of similar size and price, I wouldn't be able to help on this front as I only received this for free so did not have any need to shop around. However I would certainly recommend this for people who like to have small, but powerful portable speakers for al occasions.
I am a student at the moment so I am always being invited to house parties at different locations, and because of how portable the Sony SRS-BTV5 is, it makes life easier as no body wants to carry large sets of speakers around, with countless amount of wires.
According to a friend of mine, if you purchase a Sony Experia T, you can also get this for free. Although this was almost a month ago from the Carphone warehouse, and I am not sure if that was part of signing up to a monthly contract.
I guess with all reviews it would only be fair to take a balanced approach, so if I do have to add a negative point to he review, it would be that don;t expect the volume to blow you away. Although these speakers are good enough for a small gathering, don't expect them to be suitable for a large club night!!
Summary: Great quality speakers which makes life so much easier
