Summary: Like many others, I really wanted the Bose. I purchased the Sony based on a number of glowing reviews and I am extremely satisfied. The unit is not too large, is just heavy enough to feel like a quality piece of equipment and is still very portable. Most importantly however it sounds truly amazing even with a standard Bluetooth connection to my iPhone.
!! I like it, is excellent, except for the power ¡¡

Summary: All features seem great, except that the power of the sound depends of the quality of the source. This article is not an amplifier, if the sound source is low, so the horn sounds. Should improve this feature.
Summary: This is my first purchase of any kind of bluetooth speaker, so I don't know how it compares to others, but I am really happy with the sound quality and ease of use on this Sony SRSBTX500. I basically use it to play our itunes library on the ipad and it's great. Just turn on the bluetooth function on the ipad, and the music plays loud and clear from the speaker.
Summary: This wasn't the super loud surround sound that I wish I had, but it's definetly worth the money. After hearing the BOSE in the store, I do think the BOSE link sounds better, but not enough to bother with returning this and paying more for the BOSE. Happy I got this.
Summary: got this for 200 dollars from amazon and I didn't expect it to be this good. the sound Is great for a Bluetooth speaker and it was real easy to connect to my smart phone and tablet. the only downside I notice was when watching videos or playing android games that there was a slight lag but I purchased this base only on listening music and being able for the whole family to be able to share a wireless speaker with our phones or Bluetooth devices in the house and so far...
Summary: I just received this unit yesterday and couldn't stop listening well into the night!! The Bluetooth connection is superb and the sound is rich and full with enough bass to satisfy any audiophile!!
Summary: I also previously purchased a Bose Sound Link II. Just no comparison on the clarity and depth of sound. I keep it on the surround sound mode for full richness that fills the room; unlike the Bose that remain tinny. So far, the best that I have experienced of the mobile Bluetooth speakers.
