The good: The Sony SRS-BTX500 is a sleekly designed Bluetooth wireless speaker that offers impressive sound for its size, and has a built-in rechargeable battery for on-the-go use, and speakerphone capabilities. A carrying case is included and there's a USB port for charging smartphones when the AC adapter is plugged in. The NFC pairing feature is a nice bonus for new phones that are so equipped.
The bad: The speaker's fairly expensive and the battery life is OK but not great.
The bottom line: A worthy peer to speakers by Bose and Jawbone, the Sony SRS-BTX500 is one of the best premium portable Bluetooth speakers you can buy.
