Product Details

Sony Premium Black Bluetooth Wireless Speaker, Model SRSBTX500

Add instant ambiance to any room with a 40W Bluetooth speaker that allows one touch pairing with NFC smartphones. NFC lets you wirelessly connect your compatible devices by lightly tapping them against the speaker — no messing with codes required. It's premium sound meets ultimate convenience. Take calls on the built-in speakerphone and everyone in the room can be a part of the conversation.


Wireless wonder.
Break out an NFC-equipped Bluetooth enabled speaker at your next informal gathering for 40 watts of quality wireless sound they've got to hear to believe. Forget hovering nearby to skip tracks or search for a new playlist. Wirelessly streaming from your Bluetooth capable smartphone or music player means you can keep your device by your side wherever you are in the room, putting an end to corded captivity. There's even integrated speakerphone capability so you can take that important call without missing a beat. Plug into a wall outlet or use the internal rechargeable battery for up to 7 hours of nonstop music.

Cutting-edge Sony sound
Stereo 2.1 channel audio with dual passive radiators. Crank up 40 watts of quality DMC sound that combines 3 cutting-edge elements of audio technology exclusive to Sony. Rather than using speakers with a conventional damper, the SRS-BTX500 utilizes unique damperless Magnetic Fluid speakers that deliver crystal clear vocals with less distortion than traditional speakers. Dual passive radiators work in concert with the built-in subwoofer and speakers to produce deep, rich bass. Last but not least, Sony's own Clear Phase DSP (Digital Signal Processor) technology refines the acoustic signal allowing instruments and vocals to sound more like a live performance. A stereo speaker array complete with dual passive radiators and a subwoofer delivers surprisingly rich, full sound from a compact assembly.

Better with Bluetooth®
Make the most of your Bluetooth enabled device or smartphone with a speaker that makes streaming audio wirelessly a breeze. Or try out NFC (Near Field Communications) one touch connect capability. It's easy to match up the NFC logo with the one on your NFC enabled device and give it a tap – you'll have turned on the speaker, activated Bluetooth connectivity, paired the two devices and started streaming music with one simple action.

Hands-free speakerphone
Lose yourself in your music, movie or game without missing that important call. Simply press the dedicated speakerphone button, and you can have a hands-free conversation without losing your place on your playlist.

AC adapter included
Included AC adapter cord gives you the option of plugging into a wall outlet or using the internal, rechargeable battery for up to 7 hours of continuous playtime. Compatible devices can also be conveniently charged via rear-mounted USB terminal (when using AC power), so they'll be much less likely to die in the middle of your favorite track.

Dynamic, portable sound
Sleek, portable and packing a 40 watt punch, this portable Bluetooth® stereo speaker system delivers rich, full sound almost anywhere.

Built-in rechargeable battery for portability
Enjoy up to 6 hours of continuous battery operation.

USB charging for SmartPhone
And just when your battery is about to give up the ghost, a USB terminal can conveniently charge your Smartphone or portable audio device.

One-touch connection with NFC
Enjoy convenient Bluetooth® pairing with NFC (Near field communications) technology. Simply align the NFC logos and tap to: power the speaker on, activate Bluetooth®, pair the two devices, and stream your music.

DMC technology
DMC technology melds three SONY-exclusive innovations: Dual Passive Radiators, Magnetic Fluid Speakers, and Clear PhaseTM DSP to deliver an audio experience that begs to be heard!

    Comments about Sony Premium Black Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

    Really excellent product. I listened to several in this price range and none of the other products were close to the sound-especially the base. It is VERY portable and pairs with bluetooth very easily. I would recommend this to anyone with a smartphone who listens to music!

        Comments about Sony Premium Black Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

        The product was a Christmas gift for my daughter. She loves it! We can be in one room with the bluetooth phone and it can control the speaker in another room, about 50 ft away. Sound is very good for a compact speaker system that can be moved easily from room to room.

        So pretty!

        By DianaElizabeth

        from Phoenix, AZ

        Finally no eye sore when you want to play some music. I love that it's sleek and beautiful but also has the Sony sound quality. It's convenient to just turn on Bluetooth and stream the music. Taking calls on it is also great, very good quality and you don't have to stop what you're doing to take a call. I also love the carrying case so you can throw it in your tote when you go out to meet friends without worrying about it getting banged up.

        Awesome speaker!

        By brianlosangeles

        from los angeles, ca

        This speaker is just awesome, easy to connect, durable too I dropped it many times due to my type of work In the mechanic field. Theres only one flaw, well not really a flaw more like a wish, I wish the battery would last a bit longer on full blast, it would hold 5 to 6 hours on bluetooth on 70 percent volume and 3 to 4 hours on 90percent , but if I take this to the beach I wished it would last longer or have an extra battery compartment to take external batteries when internal battery is dead. Or make a removable internal battery.

        Unbelievable sound quality

        By Electroman

        from Philadelphia, PA

        After reading some great reviews of the btx500 on cnet and other sites, I took the leap. It was a leap worth taking. I am blown away by the crystal clear audio quality of this unit, by its sheer beauty, by the adjustable bass level it provides as well. Bass can be switched to min/off or on. A surround option is also present. Bass has a solid boom -- so much so that if this could be hooked up to a tv, it could be a sound bar in its own right. Great bluetooth connectivity too. As far as cons: Price is a bit high, but great if you get it on sale. Also, I believe the lith-ion rechargeable battery that makes it portable (if you don't use the plug) has a life of a few years. I don't know whether the battery is replaceable when it stops taking a charge (I suspect not), but even if/when that happens, I will just switch to AC power. All in all, a fantastic device that I will be enjoying for a long time to come. Thanks, Sony!!!

        Great sound but it died after 2 weeks :(

        By SatisfiedDude

        from SoCal

        I loved this product. It had a great heft to it and wonderful, full room sound from such a small unit. The battery life was also a plus and lasted for a solid 6 hours per charge. Unfortunately, after 2 weeks of ownership something unexpected happened to my speakers where they don't seem to register that the AC cable is plugged in at all. Since the speakers don't want to believe the AC cable is plugged in it won't charge the internal battery. It is a useless brick. I am bummed out because this was such a great speaker system during those two weeks.
