Sony's SRS-BTV5 wireless ball speaker just misses the plate
19 March 2013
Summary: The Sony SRS-BTV5 wireless Bluetooth speaker boasts speakerphone and (iffy) NFC capabilities, but it doesn't beat the competition for the price.
Pros: The, is a sleek and compact ball-shaped wireless Bluetooth speaker that offers a good feature set, including a built-in rechargeable battery, speakerphone capabilities, an auxiliary input, and NFC one-touch tap-to-pair technology.
Cons: In terms of sound it fails to distinguish itself from the pack, and the NFC technology proved problematic.
