Relax at home with the SRS-BTX500 wireless speaker from Sony that adds punch to any party. The 2.1 channel speaker system delivers a generous 40W of power to grab everyone’s attention. Whatever your taste in music, you’ll enjoy ultra-natural sound thanks to state-of the-art Sony ‘DMC’[1] technology. Dual Passive Radiators deliver extra low-end muscle, while Clear Phase DSP recreates the emotion of a live performance with sparkling reproduction of instruments and soaring vocals.

Using Magnetic Fluid technology originally developed by NASA, Sony has created the world's first full-range ‘damperless’ speakers that reduce distortion for noticeably clearer sound. This space-age design also boosts efficiency, increasing volume levels compared with ordinary speakers at the same power. Everyone at the party will now be able to appreciate the difference with louder, clearer music.

Sony’s unique DSEE processing boosts the quality of compressed music files, restoring all-important high frequencies that get lost when you’re listening to sounds on your mobile device.

Even slimmer and lighter, the BTX300 makes an ideal travel companion whilst also delivering a satisfying 20W of output power from its two channel speaker system. It’s no lightweight when it comes to serious sound quality, with a passive radiator for extra low-end boost.

Indoors or outside, around the house or for weekends away, you’ll enjoy rich, room-filling music from any Bluetooth® enabled device like your iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet.

Easy streaming with NFC and “One-touch” wireless connection

The slim, stunningly styled new BTX500 and BTX300 both make it beautifully simple to ‘throw’ great-sounding music from your mobile device.

All it takes is a touch: just hold your smartphone* or tablet against the wireless speaker for a moment. Using NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, the speaker connects instantly to your phone with no need for cables, fiddly set-up or Bluetooth® access codes. Then you’re all set to stream powerful, premium-quality digital sound that fills the room.

And don’t worry if you haven’t got an NFC-enabled smartphone. Both speakers can stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth® from your iPhone/iPad or other Android mobiles and tablets in standard pairing mode.

Why not take your music with you? The BTX500 and BTX300 make perfect partners for day trips or weekends away. The slim, modern lines of both docks slip neatly into a suitcase or travel bag for easy portability. The long-lasting rechargeable battery gives power for up to 8 hours (BTX300) / 6 hours (BTX500) of listening while you’re out and about.

Both speakers also offer the extra convenience of a ‘hands-free’ speaker mode, letting you chat to friends on the phone as you wander around the room. There’s also a handy USB port to power up your smartphone – great if you’re getting low on talk time when there’s no power socket nearby.

The new Sony SRS-BTX500 and SRS-BTX300 wireless speakers are available in the UK from April 2013.
