Sony unveils speaker for smartphones at IFA 2011.
The Sony SRS-BTV25 combines Sony's 360 Circle Sound technology with Bluetooth wireless music streaming to provide a seamless connection to smartphones, including the iPhone, and other Bluetooth-enabled devices like the Walkman, iPod touch and iPad.
Wireless means what it says: no cables, no fiddle – just walk into the room where the speaker is plugged in, establish the link with your Bluetooth device, and play! Its small size, big sound and omnidirectional acoustics mean the Sony SRS-BTV25 can go in any room and be moved easily. All this makes it the perfect music machine, whether you are relaxing alone, with a few friends or throwing a party.
A special bass-boost function ensures party-perfect beats that will not be drowned out by the crowd. An Audio In port means you can connect any non-Bluetooth players you want to use via mini-jack. For maximum convenience, every time you listen to music from your smartphone or iPhone you can also charge it up via a USB charging port.
Sony also offers up the RDP-V20iP, which uses the same 360 Circle Sound technology but acts as a charger and speaker dock for iPhone and iPod models and is controlled via the supplied remote.
The IFA 2011 opens on September 2nd in Berlin, Germany. Read all the latest news and highlights in our IFA 2011 Hub.
